  1. What broker are you with? For example I’m with IB, so instead of STOPTYPE=MARKET, market is called SMRTM, so try replace with STOPTYPE=SMRTM (if you are with IB).
  2. So I've searched the forum before and I don't think I've found a definitive answer on how to do it, but I somehow figured it out today. Double click chart to set the price you want first. This is how I do it in case anyone is interested: -Stop Limit order for a long entry (say for a breakout), with 200 shares and 3 cents limit: Route=Stop;StopType=LIMIT;StopPrice=Price;Price=Price+0.03;Share=200;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send (Shorting for a breakdown would be the same except change it to Price-0.03, and change to "SELL=Send"). -Stop Market order after the above order is filled to set a hard stop. Double click on chart to set price first: Route=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=Price;Share=Pos;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send (Again for covering a short it is the same but change it to "BUY=Send"). I have also realized there is a command for the replace button, which is simply "REPLACE". So now I have a hotkey for that as well instead of manually left clicking the RPL button in montage.
  3. There seems to be quite a bit of support at that lower red dotted line. It had a failed 123 in the 1 minute. It moved up after a topping tail doji (which tends to signify bearishness on its own), so that would mean bullish. But a topping tail doji at the bottom range usually also means there's buying pressure too. It is far from the moving averages. So all in all I don't think it's an ideal short entry imo. A better entry would be a break of that lower dotted line level.
  4. Hi Kyle, Could you show us how to set a stop limit order long with a limit of 0.05 (or whatever arbitrary amount)? And conversely a short? With a double click on the chart to set the trigger price. I think there was some coding in the spreadsheet at the bottom but I couldn’t figure it out. Thanks!
  5. I suppose you are using a layout file you used on your desktop? What I did was shrink everything in my desktop, then transfer that layout file to the laptop and resize everything to fit for the laptop. So you can see everything.
  6. I recently got the Asus Zenbook 14 inch UX430UA on a sale, and its' great. My main priority is lightness so I can bring it anywhere and review my trades and journal (and also trade), and within my budget. I really don't want to get a cheaper laptop but with a weight and girth of a brick, that would really demotivate me to lug it around.
  7. I would suggest using Stop Market, to prevent exactly what happened to you. I would only use stop limit to enter into a position. If you are using Stop Limit for a stop, in your case, you are essentially telling the system "Exit my position at that price but NOT PAST the limit price." So if it passes your limit price, you don't want to exit? That doesn't seem to make sense....remember the stock market can remain irrational way longer than you are rational. Good luck! PS. It sounds like you might be setting your risk amount a bit too high if you are just starting, and are able to lose hundreds (or thousand) in a matter of seconds.
  8. Hi guys, I just received this pop up from Karen when opening DAS just now. Am I reading it right that our package no longer supports Nasdaq live feed? I'm with the BearBull DAS IB package currently.
  9. Hi Carlos, is this only available to members who currently have the DAS Sim subscription from BBT? I'm a lifetime member but my BBT Sim account expired a while ago.
  10. 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?
  11. I’m using a mechanical gaming wired keyboard and I love the feedback. For mouse I just used any cheap mouse.
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
