  1. Hi good morning Moe. With DAS and IB, you can connect as many IB accounts as you wish on top of having a Paper Trading account. Once in the DAS application, you will be able to choose your default account to execute orders (ie your sim account) or you can change your account on the fly within the montage (if you have 2 or more accounts) Your sim paper account # within DAS may start or look similar to this; TRIB1234
  2. Here is a couple of hotkeys I use to quickly jump from '40' Margin to '99' Margin and back to my base Margin default of '20' I use it depending on my Chart window size. Examples of 20, 40 & 99 (all same ticker / 5 min)
  3. Hmmm. I think that is for you to decide. Personally, I don't agree with what you have noticed that "stocks that gap up/down tend to follow that initial push either up or down." Or perhaps I just dont trade using that as a 'check-mark' factor. There are many factors that could impact that analogy. The list would be very long however some would include major resistance levels, trend line resistance, market sentiment. Happy Trading.
  4. Hi John. DAS in its most recent version has released a more 'approachable / functional' method of placing price alerts on the fly. Its not 100% bang on, but at least its a huge improvement. here is the download link for it http://www.dastrader.com/download/beta/DASInstallIBCO.5.4.7.0.exe Hi Paul, We have added a new feature/hotkey commands in our beta version, where allows user to directly place and modify the orders in chart window and directly set up a Alert from chart window, and some other features too. Let me know what is your username and who is your broker if you wish to try it. For 'Place Order' you can find more information here: https://dastrader.com/kb/knowledge-base/how-do-i-directly-place-and-modify-the-open-order-through-chart-window/ For the 'Alert', go to Hotkey window->Chart Window Categories-> Chart Alert Sub Categories, you will see some new hotkey commands there. Here is the example, "AlertName=newalert;AlertType=LastPrice;AlertOperator==;AddAlert" Then go to chart window and press this hotkey, then left click and hold your mouse, you will see a alert/price level, then unhold the mouse to set up the alert.(Hint, you have to open the Alert and Trigger window first) -- Best, Jason He DAS|INC
  5. DAS does not support RVOL. (Relative Volume) as far as I have been told. (not to mention cant find)
  6. Try dabbling with this; (wont work in pre-market conditions) Ensure your script(s) work 100% in simulator mode before ever using live. Buy 100 Shares then AUTO set RANGE (10 cent stop, 20 cent profit target orders) ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=Ask+0.10;Share=100;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:AvgCost2-.10 HighPrice:AvgCost2+.20 ACT:SELL QTY:POS TIF:DAY+ I have not used this script for a super long time. Not sure if it still works as I was using it in older revisions of DAS.
  7. Don't stress yourself with a short time-frame. If you test for 8-12 months or much longer, you will be very normal. Learning curve is large. Good luck and see you in the chat room!
  8. In the past I have dealt with a guy named Jason at DAS. Jason is a liaison between DAS Support team and the developers who take suggestions. One recent suggestion I have made to DAS is to provide the ability that within drawn trend-lines, and within the Configuration setting of that line, to be able to set simple Audio alerts with optional pop up visual alert. (two clicks and your done). Most other platforms I have used have that simple feature. DAS currently has a complicated, time consuming audio alert feature.

  9. Who is the broker and are the stocks under 5$? Some Brokers will not allow margin trades on stocks under 5$. It may be best to contact both the broker and das support.
  10. Hi Bethany. Is this in SIM trading or Live account? Also are your orders in pre-market conditions?
  11. Nice work Kyle. I wish DAS had a Matrix order window. TradeStation has an amazing Matirx order window to work with which has all the ordering powers right at your finger tips. Not sure if anyone here has had the opportunity to use TS in the past?
  12. Hi Justin. Want to support your post up above as I personally use daily charts to find support and resistance pockets. Support and Resistance (pivots/consolidation areas) are one possible indicator for the trader to respect and monitor carefully. In addition to Support and Resistance zones I use daily trend lines everyday. Once I short list my morning watch list, I take the time to map out the major ascending and descending support lines (connection major pivot points) to provide me additional information about where support and resistance pockets may be respected. This can assist you in making decisions for your entries or exits on any time frame.
  13. Do you think one day you could do a youTube video tutorial and show how it actually works in real time? Demonstrate the usefulness of this program? That would be cool! Fantastic efforts and work here.
  14. I want to support this statement. It is very important to know that trading is about a lot of different factors combined hopefully preparing you to make the best possible decision when choosing to enter/exit. (That is why Andrew's books are a great read by the way!)
