  1. Hey guys, I just recently started building my own trading bot in python using IB's API. Anyone else working with bots right now? Could be nice to share info or just keep in touch for help/ideas/motivation. Thanks!
  2. Merci pour ta réponse rapide TheKbSb. Est-ce que ce serait trop indiscret de te demander avec quel comptable ou compagnie tu fais affaire pour tes impôts? J'ai bien peur que le comptable que j'ai trouvé soit un peu perdu en matière de daytrading. Je pense qu'il s'attendait à un style d'investisseur qui transige seulement quelques dizaines de transactions annuelles et non pas quelques milliers. Si d'autres personnes ont des choses à ajouter, toute information est la bienvenue. Merci!
  3. Bonjour, C'est la première fois que je fais faire mes impôts en tant que daytrader. Je dois amender mes impôts de 2016, 2017, 2018 (pour y ajouter mes activités de daytrading) et faire faire ceux de 2019. Le comptable que j'ai trouvé voulait me charger entre 500 et 600$ pour faire tout ça mais après avoir vu mes relevés de transactions, il veut me charger entre 1500$ et 2000$ puisque le nombre de transactions est beaucoup plus élevé que ce qu'il avait imaginé et je cite "chaque transaction doit être évaluée afin de suivre votre coût moyen pondéré par actions pour chaque action afin de déterminer votre gain lors de chaque vente". Je ne m'y connais pas du tout en fiscalité mais je me demande s'il doit vraiment évaluer chaque transaction de cette façon, ça me parait un peu intense. Est-ce que c'est normal selon vous et est-ce que son prix de 2000$ vous semble excessif ou tout à fait normal? Ou peut-être avez-vous des recommandations pour un comptable spécialisé en daytrading qui saurait être plus efficace? Merci!
  4. +1 on this. I really wish I had that free roll hotkey today haha, was in AAPL and it was riding up all day. It would have been the perfect opportunity to use it.
  5. I think by default they make it 4:1 for everyone because US residents get that. But canadians only get 3.333333. If you compare your actual BP in TWS and DAS they should be equal and they probably aren't right now. You can contact DAS and ask them to fix your BP to the actual value so you don't have to mess with the script. That's what I did.
  6. You wouldn't have to delete yours to test mine, you can just copy yours in a safe place, then put mine in the DAS folder. Once you're done with the test, you just put yours back in place and everything is back to normal. All of your lines are in this file. You can copy it and have a backup in case anything happens. That version number is correct: http://www.dastrader.com/download/beta/DASInstallIBCO.5.5.0.5.exe
  7. I sent them the file GlobalTrendline.dat when the problem was present and they said the file was corrupted. Then they asked me to install the newest beta version and to report back if the problem happens again. I was kinda scared to work with a beta vesion so I just didn't do it, until today. Will see next week if the problem is still there in 5.0.5.5 but I don't see why it wouldn't be as it doesn't seem like they changed anything to try to fix it. If you want, I can send the file to you so you can try it out on your system and see if it does the same problem. All you have to do is backup your GlobalTrendline.dat file and put mine in its place and restart DAS. But you need market data coming in to notice the stutter so you would need to try that on monday.
  8. I shutdown my computer every night so that's not it for me.
  9. The problem happens during use of the application and the file is only written to when the application is closed, so the file can't be the source of the problem. Also, I don't have any special antivirus software. I'm using the default one that comes with Windows 10.
  10. Hi everyone, My DAS platform has a recurring problem. Every couple of days, it starts stuttering like crazy. To fix the problem, I have to close my DAS Platform, delete the GlobalTrendline.dat and restart DAS. It then warns that it cannot open the trendline file, I click OK and everything is back to normal, except that I lost all my trendlines. If I move the file in and out of the folder, the problem comes and goes, so it confirms that the problem is contained in that file. It happens randomly so I can't just reproduce it whenever I want to but it seems to be happening more often a couple of seconds / minutes after I add a trendline or edit a trendline on a chart, and more often at the open, but that may be because that's usually when I use the trendlines the most. What bugs me is that DAS doesn't seem to be writting to that file during use. It only saves to it when you close the platform. So basically it would mean that the problem is floating in memory and only gets saved to the file when I close the platform. So the problem doesn't seem to come from writting to the file or the file getting corrupted. The file is only doing its job and it saves the corrupted information as well as the good information apparently. Anyone having the same issue with the platform? I tried multiple versions already and they all do the same thing for me. It's costing me trades and losing all my trendlines every few days isn't fun at all so if I can't get it resolved I will start looking at the Sterling platform. Thanks
  11. Hi Marek and Kyle, Have you found a solution to this? Because this is exactly what I'd like to be able to do too. I'm using Kyle's hotkey script to buy a number of shares at market calculated on risk defined in the script and stop defined by double-click on the chart. Now if there was a way to place a limit order by using an additional double-click in this process, anywhere, or split the process in 2 hotkeys to make it work, that would be just perfect. Thanks!
  12. Hey Kyle, is there any way to incorporate "SwitchTWnd;" in the script so that it automatically highlights the montage window when pushing the hotkey? I just hate it when I miss an entry because my montage window wasnt selected. I tried adding it to the front of the script like so: SwitchTWnd;StopPrice=Price-0;DefShare=BP*0.925;Price=Ask-Price+0.00;SShare=20/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price= Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=200;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.05 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; But it gives an error when using the hotkey. Maybe the "SwitchTWnd;" command needs to be inserted at a specific place in the script for it to work but I wouldn't know where exactly. Any idea?
  13. I got an IBT account and it doesn't work. I would like to test it but I just can't log in using my real account login and I don't have any other one.
  14. I get the message: Error: No more Order server to connect. What login am I supposed to use for the demo version? My TR account linked with my real one? Or do I have to request a new 14 days trial? Thanks!
  15. Hi, I'd like to be able to hit a hotkey to prepare an order and then left clicking on the chart at the desired price would instantly send it. I was working like this in TWS and it was really fast to set stops and targets, no need to enter a price manually ever. Seeing what Kyle was able to do with his hotkeys, I'm thinking there's a chance this could work in DAS too. Any ideas?
