  1. Oh man! so lame! I will miss this BBT meetup. My flight is also on the 3rd of December evening. I wish we can do this a week early.
  2. Hi, Here's another hotkey command for STOP Market at avgcost or at breakeven whether you are Long or Short. ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;Share=Pos;StopPrice=AvgCost+0.00;TIF=DAY+;SEND=REVERSE Thanks, Ryan
  3. Yes, some of the IB users had experienced this. So it's a habit of mine now to open TWS platform to check the margin rate of a stock.
  4. Hey Guys, I had an issue with my $ARRY trade yesterday wherein DAS says it's 25% marginable SHORT and or LONG, which means I can use 4:1 buying power. But When I entered the trade, my order failed and it did not let me use my Buying Power. I am now few seconds late to my trade so I missed the great downward move (SHORT) and chased the stock without using my Buying Power. This happened to me with $UBER and some stocks that also requires 100% margin. I found this IB website that you can use to check what's the margin percentage requirement of a stock. https://contract.ibkr.info I hope you find this useful. Cheers, Ryan (ryan_pdt) @Robert H and @PeterD. I know you guys are using IB too.
  5. Hi Guys, I wanted to share a hotkey command / script I got from @Robert H that I find very useful. Let me tell you a short story about my frustrations in covering a position. There were times that I'm in a stock just right at the open and it shoots super fast and in favor of my direction. Ofcourse your initial reaction is in shock for few milliseconds. And Instead of covering my LONG/SHORT position, I always end up adding half or full at your target. Imagine how stressful that was! So I've always been curious if there's a magic hotkey to cover either a LONG or SHORT position without worrying which side you are in. And believe or not, @Robert H has the answer! Not sure if some of the guys in our BBT forum has this command already but Let me share it anyways and see if we can tweak it for our favor. ROUTE=SMRTM;Share=Pos*0.5;TIF=DAY+;SEND=REVERSE (for half position Long/Short) ROUTE=SMRTM;Share=Pos;TIF=DAY+;SEND=REVERSE (for full position Long/Short) The only issue I think with this I guess is, it's set as Market order. Meaning, you can get filled at any price (blank cheque) and this is bad if you are trading non liquid stocks or stocks that has huge spreads. This is probably only suitable for smaller trade sizes or with liquid stocks that has tight spreads. If someone has an idea to convert this into a LIMIT order to Hit the Ask when you're LONG and Hit the Bid when you're SHORT that would be great! Hope you find this hotkey useful somehow. Cheers, Ryan (ryan_pdt)
