  1. Good day everyone. Just want to mention that I did reach out to DAS and they did add the above additional data as stated. Robert. I do have a question for your, do you know where/how to gain the information of added Float and other stock fundamental data Thank you!
  2. Converted a typical closet into a trade station. I added a 'peel n stick' wood wall paneling and installed a 3 pot-light lamp above with dimmer switch.
  3. Hi fellow traders. I would like to share with anyone who may find this useful or perhaps provide a helpful ‘head start’ into the world of Hot Keys. When I began to learn day trading and the importance of using hot keys, I created an editable PDF file which I would refine and develop as my trading progressed. To this day I still refer back to this chart as a constant reminder of my complex hot-key layout. One very nice thing about the PDF I am providing here is the fact that all the comment text boxes and red square boxes are ‘live and editable’. You can use this file as a head start to customize your preferred hotkeys vs. creating one from scratch. (Bit of a time saver) You will find that as you evolve your hotkeys, you will revise your PDF on the fly continuously making it more detailed and accurate for your desired use. Just a note; All I did here was take a photo of my actual keyboard and added some black space around it. I then saved a .jpg file and converted it to a PDF file. A few things I would like to point out here in hopes to answer some possible questions. This layout I am providing here is simply how I ‘personally’ have found to work for ‘my’ for my trading style. Yours can of course differ. - The text boxes Highlighted in ‘yellow’ represent the very active hotkeys I use most commonly - The colored stickers on the keyboard (purchased from a dollar store) are something I did to help me learn with clarity/confidence under pressure. Once you have used them for a while you will most likely find that you do not need colored stickers. Your hotkeys become natural to you. That day will come. - The hotkey scripts I am providing are based on using DAS trader version (and in particular IB as my broker). Please note to ensure that you test out all your hotkeys in simulation mode before you go live. Make changes as necessary. - From my understanding and experience using hotkeys in DAS Trader Pro Hotkeys associated with ‘stop order’ like actions DO NOT work in pre-market environments. (I do not know why). So use at your own discretion and ensure to test out all of them in the simulator environment. Perhaps now that I have done this, it might be nice for other fellow traders to share their hotkey layout and what works well for them. Be nice to see other trading styles. Happy trading everyone! And good luck! Uploaded; April 20 2019 Revision: 0 DAS HotKey Layout and Shortcut Scripts REV0.pdf

    Great to hear that a visit is back in the forecast. I personally will slot out those days to ensure availability. Please count me in. Looking forward to it. (An the upcoming trade challenge!)
  10. Good day traders. I was informed by a DAS Trader user that the newest update which DAS has released ( Feb 21 2019) (click Tools > Auto Upgrade) that somehow it is able to show you where the "Circuit Breaker Halt" price is for any given moving stock. Does anyone in here happen to know how to turn that setting on? Or where to find it? Best regards,

    Short with trailing stop setup

    I was just informed by DAS support that " STOP orders may or may not execute during pre/post market hours " Thought I would share this to the community. Many of the times I am testing out my orders pre-market... I will test further during open market times and will update. Thanks.

    Short with trailing stop setup

    Good morning from Toronto. I feel a bit embarrassed however I am having an issues simply setting a Market Stop order to work. Never can seem to get any sort of stops working in DAS. Perhaps anyone here can simple tell me what in there opinion this script means... (I know what it should do... But it doesn't) perhaps I am missing something.... Can anyone offer any leads or tips to my issue? ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=Last-0.1;Share=Pos;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send Thank you.
