  1. Updates........this could be an opportunity for BBT members if done correctly.........approach SAGICOR for better rates to BBT members. As stated I saw this coming (see other posts) and it could be good news for BBT clients if the buyers keep the service. Sagicor is a great financial institution. across the Caribbean. Now I am not sure they will keep the services which BBT members use...............this still needs to be seen. If they keep it, the costs could drop and better efficient services could be offered. It may take some time to onboard all the AIM services into SAGICOR GROUP. https://jamaica-gleaner.com/article/business/20220427/sagicor-investments-buying-aiml-securities-business

  3. I have seen a few recent YouTube videos with 200-300 download speed using the SPEEDTEST app. Depends on your location in US or the world.
  4. Usually in BBT Webinar Room o Sundays at 9AM EST. He has said that he will restart next Sunday. He has been on a break since xmas I think.
  5. Generally the theory is the higher % held by institutions the more volume will be transacted as Institutions ENTER or EXIT positions of the stock. Thus a institutions transactions will trend for a few days as the institution positions itself, as large positions take days to be filled to the required investment size of the institutions. The higher the better for possible trending This is subjective and different traders have different % amt. I like 75%, but have no way to say that this is "right".
  6. I had this issue some time back. It showed itself for a couple of days and then disappeared. For me I noticed, if I did not shutdown/restart my computer for days it slowed. So I normally RESTART my system just before I start my morning stock selection process, so I have a "fresh" system. One other thing I noticed is that the DAS Process does not die when u close the DAS app (only happens on my main trading system.) DAS dies when app is closed on my 2 laptops.....That's the main reason why I do a RESTART. U can check if the DAS process is still running after u close the app by looking at the running processes. After a week of trouble shooting with DAS system programmers we concluded that I had some software installed that was using a version of Windows .NET that was not compatible with .NET version that DAS uses. The easy solution was to restart ...... I have too much other software to try to figure out which was the offending app. When i change systems again I will observe as i install each app. In summary just restart computer and see if that is a solution for u.
  7. Not sure if the following info would help, but understand version....16, currently in beta can cancel just the STOPS only. Then would need to figure how to put each back at the AVGCOST. Jus my 2 cents.
  8. This looks good.......total wireless for real....finally. Wonder what the price point will be and how soon it will available in the mass market.
  9. Hey @peterB ....... I like ur rules its simple, and no stress. How do u select ur stocks to apply this rule ? Do u read tape to help with entry/exits ?
  10. 5M ATR(6) ...... Average True Range for 6 periods (5 min candles x 6 periods) --- it generally measures the volatility of the stocks for the last 6 candles on a 5 minute chart.
  11. I am not sure...........I personally closed my acct with them more than 12 mths ago for other customer service reasons. I had posted about that in this forum. If my memory serves me correct from my days in banking i.e. 20+ yrs ago, you cannot have a banking license in Jamaica with a criminal record. So, if convicted the owners/operators will have to sell the institution (i.e. the customer base) or close it down. Being the financial "wizards" that they are I am sure they going to try to make as much money off the customers base......and possible some local or oversea financial institution will buy, to make a dollar. Not sure which direction new shares holders will take the institution. Andrew has/had an account with them, I think.
  12. Welcome to the group. I do not like answering a question by asking a question, but eventually I will have to ask a few in this case. ORB's are thought to be easy bcoz u see and entry signal, the hard part is the STOP placement. In Ed's Chat Room he has very very specific rules for ENTRY, STOP and TARGETS (i.e. levels). Not sure if ur STOP was within his rules which is a 5M ATR6. If u have not been in his room strongly suggest u visit and ask for the link to his 3 recent vids he did while being a BBT Mod. They explain his 5M ORB specifics in detail and how to read Price Action, PA. His vids have not been uploaded to education center yet, they will be, but members in the room will share a temp link to them. So onto the questions: (which I do not like to ask.......as it can be frustrating as a beginner without the right knowledge) 1. I assume its a 5M ORB, where was the STOP calculated to be ? Why ? 2. Did u draw levels ? Where did u identify these levels ? 3. What was target ? 4. Did stock have catalyst ? or u traded with MARKET direction ? 5. Awesome u STOP-ped out .....if that was part of ur PLAN. Didi u have a PLAN ? 6. Not all ORBs work...they do fail.....and u need to understand the PROBABILITIES for success with ur SETUPS. Look forward to seeing u in Ed's Chat room.
  13. U know what I have found if u run a desktop and a laptop and need to utilize same DAS layouts/files ensure ur GPU runs same resolution as desktop otherwise u will be resizing chart windows etc when u switch/transfer files between both computers. Otherwise do not transfer files, jus define each machine with its own DAS layout and populate data in chart window and watch list.
  14. Reviewed ur vid again........... 1. Did I see "Chart" option create 2 charts ? 2. Also try.......... Initially create one chart only in DEFAULT tab. Save the file. Exit DAS. Restart DAS, ensure chart windows works in the DEFAULT tab, then create TAB #2, create Chart Window in TAB #2. Save and exit DAS. Restart computer, restart DAS and check. Observe behavior of DAS then. These are things I did to understand how DAS works or does not work. Sometimes DAS does not kill its process also, that is the reason for restarting the computer.
  15. Suggest u send vids to [email protected] and/or [email protected] When u submit clearly state version of DAS, user name, how u expect the windows to work. Clear and concise bullet points. Currently I maximize my chart windows which are in a TAB using the top left of the chart window, with a double click..........BUT, I have chart window borders off...........its where the red/blue bar is. (Note: in darkmode, which I use, the red/blue bar does not appear/work............its a bug I live with.....DAS !!!!). To restore down the chart window, I double click on any clear part of chart window background. (Found that out by accident......lol). Will code a simple hotkey to use a windows win-restore feature in the future. It took me 14 mths to configure DAS so I could use ....... I wrote alot of code outside of DAS to manipulate DAS. U have to play with it for a while, unfortunately, to get it to do what u need. I still have a few requested urgent bugs/enhancements outstanding which I am waiting on DAS to fix/complete. Yes I am still paying them monthly.............and cannot really get it working fully. Happy holidays to u and ur fam.
