  1. Do you have an issue where it subtracts down a certain amount of pennies from where you actually place the stops? For example - I set a trigger price on the SPY of 456.01, I then place an order to short it at 455.94. However, the actual position will get filled shorting it at 455.89. Do you have any idea why? Here is the exact code the hotkey is using. DefShare=BP*0.97;Price=StopPrice-Price;SShare=5/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare; SShare=Share;Share=Price*100; Price=StopPrice; DefShare=Price*100; Price=Share/100; Price=StopPrice-Price; StopPrice=Price; Share=SShare; TogSShare; Price=Price-.05;TIF=DAY+;Route=Stop;StopType=Limit; Sell=Send; Share=DefShare;Price=Share/100; StopPrice=Price; DefShare=100;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0 ACT:BUY STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; Thanks.
  2. First - thank you very much for helping me out. Attached is a great example. I wanted to short it right at the 9EMA - $463.76. If it broke higher (let's say to $463.86) I wanted to cover immediately. I am looking for an immediate turn in price with a very tight stop. If these hotkeys do that then I am simply confused on how to use them.
  3. I am confused then. I am having trouble getting it to work. I can get them to work on break of high of day, but not on what I describe. For a break of HOD it will buy it back if it falls below a certain level. However, I need it to short it the HOD and buy it ABOVE that level. Coding is very confusing to me and I appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks.
  4. Hi All - I am trying to create a hotkey that will do something similar. However, I would like to be able to short a stock heading higher in price at a certain price (let's say $100) and if it breaks above that level have an automatic stop set to buy it to cover at $100.05. The same goes for the inverse of this, buy a stock at a certain price (let's once again say $100) and sell it if it hits $99.95. I like to trade off of moving averages and keep a really tight stop. Does anyone know how to do this or if it exists? Thanks.
