  1. Since we don't have the ability to delete trades, or select which account we want to only import from, and I really want to try some stuff in sim but not affect my equity curve in Chartlog, does it make sense for me to uncheck "Log debug messages" and do whatever I need in sim, and then recheck it when I'm done and ready to trade in my real account? Would that theoretically bypass that issue and not log any of my trades in sim in this case?
  2. I’m using a mechanical gaming wired keyboard and I love the feedback. For mouse I just used any cheap mouse.
  3. Justin’s comment reminded me, I also saw a bug where my overnight position was not found anywhere in the journal (the day I entered nor the day after when I exited). I exited before market opened the next day, if that makes any difference. Thanks!
  4. Thank you Igor and Adrian for your hard work! I have been using it for a few days and it's so great and fluid. I have a suggestion: Can we have a function to manually (I don't see how the debug log can capture our stop order that didn't fill) input our stop loss in a field in the notes (when we review it), and from that ChartLog can generate a dotted map of all the R's in all the trades so far. I have seen it somewhere before in the community but I can't remember where I saw such a dotted map before. Basically most dots (trades) are in the 1R and -1R area, and sparsely there are other dots in higher R areas...I hope you have seen this chart before as I believe I'm terrible at describing it. Also, will we see safari/mobile chrome support? As it doesn't load correctly when I check the Chartlog site on my phone. Thank you once again! And I concur with the others who suggest donation for this project, I will definitely chip in!
  5. Thank you for your reply Kyle! It turns out when I installed the Pro version, all the BP in the TR account is reset to 0. I’ve sorted it out and it works fine now.
  6. I'm not sure if it's just me, but it seems the forum font now is either lighter in color or using a thinner font, making it more difficult to read. I know there was a recent website maintenance over the weekend, not sure if this is related? Anyhow is there a way to change the font displayed in the forum by the member? Thank you.
  7. Hi Kyle, First of all thank you for your work and sharing these hotkeys! I have been using them fine in DEMO version, but since I upgraded to the Pro version (I'm going live finally, linking with IB, but the link doesn't begin until tomorrow), the hotkeys don't work anymore. I have tried both the script William posted in the youtube tutorial: 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+; and also one generated from your excel file: StopPrice=Price-0.03;DefShare=BP*0.97;Share=DefShare*0.25*Price*0.007;Price=Ask-Price+0.01;SShare=Share/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price= Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=50;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.3 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; but they both don't do anything, except setting it back to the default share and changing the price and trigger price. When I checked the messages in the montage, I see this (this is using the youtube version script): This is an example of long AMD with stop $28. I am not sure what went wrong from the DEMO to Pro version of the app...and I don't understand how they have became negatives. I have also tried using the spreadsheet script but shares also appear in negatives in the messages. Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you. I am using the training/simulator account on Pro with these.
  8. @AJTrades Is your BBT Das Sim linked to a broker? What version of BBT Das Sim are you using? My Risk Control option is still greyed out...
  9. Does anyone who use TradingView notice the VWAP they have does not fit as snug as the VWAP in DAS? I have played with the settings and it just seems quite a bit off still, anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
  10. Greg, I'm happy that you have realized what you need and decided to go back to sim. I really think you could work on your impulsiveness, as you seem to be repeating the same mistakes over and over again while at the same time knowing you are making them. That might be from the lack of quality sleep (with your baby), so I think you might want to focus on things that are beyond trading, to actually improve it. I think everyone can attest that the lack of sleep can really hinder our control of our emotional brain. So whenever I fail to sleep well, in the morning I have more fear of the markets and trade extra cautiously. Looking at your February P&L, although it's mostly reds, but at least you didn't go hulk and sustained a few hundred dollar loss on a single day, so I think that's a win in itself. Also, you seem to be attached to FB, AAPL, NFLX...even when they are not in play. I know you decrease your sizes, but since they are so expensive, their stops need to be wider, and that might not be worth the risk if they are not in play. If you feel you like to play a stock with good momentum, I feel SQ is nice when you can catch it, and it's not as expensive as those $100+ stocks. Good luck!
  11. Thank you for your insights Robert!
  12. I understand when in live, the idea to stop once daily target has been met to prevent giving it all back. I also understand when in sim, you want to try to mimic everything you would do as if you were using real money and psychology. So my question is, do I stop when I reach my daily target in sim? One part of me says yes to build my confidence and habit, but another part of me wants to be exposed to market movements more and study and practice. Though often times that will indeed cause me to give all my (sim) money back to the markets... I wonder what others had done when they were at this crossroad?
  13. Greg, the following is just my feedback so I apologize in advance if it rubs you in the wrong way. I'm also only on sim so you could just totally disregard what I have to say if you want. First of all, congrats on the baby! But having to taking care of a baby will directly increase your stress levels due to lack of quality sleep, and that would directly impact your ability to control your emotions and impulsiveness, so maybe it's best if you could find a way to ground yourself first before you start trading, whatever ways it might be (eg. meditation, deep long inhales and exhales, exercises, stretches, cold water on face etc) In my opinion if you are still a developing trader, maybe it's best to stay away from mega caps, or stocks that are higher priced. Yes you might win once or twice, but most of the time you might get shaked out and your stop loss wouldn't be able to handle that (since their stop losses are so big), worst if you don't execute your stop loss. Maybe focusing on trading these stocks that you can't get good entries with is somehow fueling your current predicament? I am interested in knowing what concrete plans you have in tackling these discipline problems? For me I have my journal in a detailed spreadsheet, explaining every trade I took the whys and what, and what I learned from that trade etc. Also like Carlos's journal, I write what I did well that day, and what needs improvement (instead of "what I did wrong"), and mood, etc. Every morning premarket I re read them, and remind myself what I need to control myself in doing the most and what my goals (skill and psychology-wise, not money) are for that day. I also limit myself now to $10-$50 stocks and small shares, just for the sake of practicing my skills, because there's no point in buying AAPL now if I'm not ready, and I won't even buy it if I go live tomorrow (well I could, but most likely I will get stopped multiple times and start a revenge trade cycle). Again, I apologize for the blunt feedback, we all have a hard time to control the psychology part, but because I have experienced those moments and choices too, I just wanted to chime in. Good luck!
  14. Is there an updated BBT demo version so that zoom bug is gone?
  15. Thanks for the quick reply Abiel. So I went and tried to install and run DAS .33 DEMO which I found from the following thread, but I keep getting the "Wrong Trader" error but I'm sure my log in info are correct. Do you have any ideas? Thanks. :
