  1. you can have stop entries wherever you click
  2. hotkeys and risk controls no problem with multiple monitors every platform is complicated once you start having your own custom ideas and needs for its use
  3. you need to right click the new window you want on the 2nd screen and click the windows to pop out of the application or in the old config style to be able to drag them to the 2nd screen then save the desktop and it will remember the windows positions
  4. its membership, not a course. with the membership you get access to those resources listed
  5. 1. open broker account (IB) 2. fund your account and set your base currency to USD on your IB account in case you are in europe 3. buy DAS https://dastrader.com/subscribe-interactive-brokers/ i recomend you to buy replay mode as well so you will be paying 165$ monthly to DAS no fees other than comissions on IB (approx $0.0115 per share) no data package for IB needed if you trade only with DAS 4. download DAS mobile app for cases when your pc goes off or you need to control your trades while your ISP/internet is down
  6. simulator comes with any membership or you can use the https://stocktradingsimulator.com/ for some tasting before for education it starts in Basic membership with essentials training
  7. what script? what risk have you set? what actions have you taken? has it worked before or is it your first try? if first try go back to beginning and read the description on requirements to make it work. post screenshots or any errors you might get
  8. if you are just starting just use the scanners in the BBT chatroom so you have an idea what it is about.
  9. as said above it all depends on other factors which are very unique to your own style of trading. how you manage the trade. 40% Batting Average with a 2.75 Win/Loss Ratio 4 Winners = 11R in Gains 6 Losers = 6R in Losses NET: After 10 Trades You'd Make 5R (60 Trades = 30R) 50% Batting Average with a 2.0 Win/Loss Ratio 5 Winners = 10R in Gains 5 Losers = 5R in Losses NET: After 10 Trades You'd Make 5R (60 Trades = 30R) 60% Batting Average with a 1.5 Win/Loss Ratio 6 Winners = 9R in Gains 4 Losers = 4R in Losses NET: After 10 Trades You'd Make 5R (60 Trades = 30R) 70% Batting Average with a 1.15 Win/Loss Ratio 7 winners = 8R in gains 3 Losers = 3R in Losses NET: After 10 Trades You'd Make 5R (60 Trades = 30R)
  10. you can get IB TWS trial for free to test https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/trading/free-trial.php
  11. if you are interactive Brokers customer you can try their TWS but you would need to pay for realtime data https://guides.interactivebrokers.com/tws/usersguidebook/technicalanalytics/linearregression.htm
  12. i mean if you know its not working in DAS, crap or no crap, move on
  13. its only another indicator and nothing is perfect. just accept the facts and move on. if it does not work the way you think it should, it does not mean its crap hard to advice anything as you are refering to TOS without any data from TOS. what is 5d1h? 5 dinners in 1 hour?
  14. i twill not work in IB or TWS either. stop orders do not work in pre/after market hours the setting in IBKR mobile is misleading and it does not work as far as i know also your limit order would not save you from a loss as the fill is not guaranteed so it can happen that you wake up in the morning and you will be way down below/above your stop this has been discussed already and do not mix routes with order types, it is not the same thing allthough certain routes allow certain order types
  15. this seems to work for long position CXL ALLSYMB;Route=STOP;StopPrice=Bid*0.99;Price=ASk*1.01;Price=Round2;StopPrice=Round2;StopType=RangeMKT;LowPrice=StopPrice;HighPrice=Price;Sell=Send for short position CXL ALLSYMB;Route=STOP;StopPrice=Bid*0.99;Price=ASk*1.01;Price=Round2;StopPrice=Round2;StopType=RangeMKT;LowPrice=StopPrice;HighPrice=Price;Buy=Send it will set the stop orders 1% above ask and 1% below bid then you can drag them where you need it
  16. first of all i am not the BBT PeterD the moderator the problem of the range order after partial lies in the counting we can click to the chart to set one side of the range but the other side of the range can be calculated only from the clicked price or average cost so no exact risk to reward counting is possible as the original stop is unknown and we cannot get values from other existing orders i will give it a try today with the percentages and keep you posted i personally do the range orders on the montage directly as there is plenty of time for that after i partialled
  17. you want just the part DefShare=200;Price=Ask-StopPrice*3+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGEMKT LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS TIF:DAY+ you just need to change the price and stopprice so my guess would be DefShare=200;Price=Avgcost*0.99;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGEMKT LowPrice:Avgcost*0.99 HighPrice:Avgcost*1.01 ACT:SELL QTY:POS TIF:DAY+ for 1% stop and 1% profit target. or try to use absolute number in cents with + instead of *
  18. 1R =$30 change the 30/Price for different risk change the StopPrice*3 - 3 means 3R change the ROUTE=LIMIT according your broker requirement - SMRTL for IB, LIMIT for CMEG LONG 1/3 RR CXL ALLSYMB;StopPrice=Price;DefShare=BP*0.975;Price=Ask-Price+0.00;SShare=30/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=Ask+0.1;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=200;Price=Ask-StopPrice*3+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGEMKT LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS TIF:DAY+ SHORT 1/3 RR CXL ALLSYMB;StopPrice=Price;DefShare=BP*0.975;Price=Price-Bid+0.00;SShare=30/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=Bid-0.1;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send;DefShare=200;Price=StopPrice-Bid*3;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGEMKT LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS TIF:DAY+ these i use everyday. adapt as necessary
