  1. Hi Chris, I have been using Das for the last 4 years and it is a great platform. Being from Canada and not trading as much now, I found it quite expensive ( After converting from US to CDN dollars it was running me about $ 225 cdn / mth). If you plan on using it extensively, well worth it. I have since transitioned to the IBKR Trader workstation and find it is meeting my needs and is free, except for the data feeds which cost me about $ 14 / mth. Not the most user friendly platform but once you get used to it, not a problem ( again, doesn't come close to DAS features but suits me. ) One other benefit of DAS is the BBT community is very fluent with DAS and provides alot of training. plus addons (ie: hotkeys, forums, etc) all related to DAS. I would love to get on TOS but we Canadians are persona non grata. You could download IBKR Tradestation for free and try out their system (only in Sim of course) and see if you like it. I know Megan has posted alot of training videos on Tradestation set up and has helped me when I had questions. She is such a great resource, it's almost worth joining BBT just for her knowledge. If you having any questions on Workstation, please feel free to email me. Good luck with your trading. Mike
  2. I am having the same problem. My Das version is Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Pre Market Preparation.... After reviewing Jarads premarket notes, it would be helpful to see how he collects / gathers this information and expand on his thought process.
  4. Would be beneficial for the whole community. Great idea.
  5. To add ATR , right click on volume chart (where your arrow is pointing) then right click and select "Study Config." Click ATR from "Studies" column and move it (Select-->) so it's placed in the "Studies in Chart" column. Click ATR in "Studies in Chart" column and Config (enter # of periods you require - default is 14). Then click "Commit". Again, right click on volume chart (where your arrow is pointing) and select "Chart Area" and select " Config Area" (bottom of list). Check " Show Study Info" and "Show Study Latest Value" then "Commit". Your ATR values should now be displayed.
  6. Check out this video on YouTube: Important Hotkey for Day Traders: EQUALIZED RISK PER TRADE on DAS Trader Pro
  7. Hi Jason, I would be interested in taking a look at your generator. Sounds like something that could be very beneficial. Thx, Mike
  8. Tj.... Sorry, but I'll have to pass. I was coming in from out of town (Barrie). Guess I'll have to wait until April to meet everyone. Thanks for all your effort... Mike
  9. I am in the Toronto area and would be interested in a meetup. Fridays are not good for me.
