  1. This hotkey doesn't work in replay mode. You'll need to test it out in SIM when the market is open.
  2. @Paul aka Aurbano - My man! Just making the world a little bit better one piece of code at a time Look at this original formatting of the tickers and how they get cut off: And now look at Paul's version:
  3. It's possible. What you're asking for is a range order. StopPrice=Price-0;DefShare=BP*0.97;Price=Ask-Price+0.01;SShare=10/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=400;Price=Ask-StopPrice*2+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS TIF:DAY+ This will allow you to double click where you want your stop, enter a trade worth $10 (SShare=10/Price;) at the current price (it'll auto calculate the shares). And place a profit target at 2R (Price=Ask-StopPrice*2+Ask;)
  4. It helps that I actually dream about DAS and trading some nights
  5. No, not for stop orders @peterB. @justinstrommer9 It's either a syntax error from when you copied it into DAS or you're not executing the script properly. If you could outline a real example and step by step of exactly what you're doing that would be helpful. Like down to the detail. "I double click on the chart at x price, then hit the first hotkey. Then I double click on the chart at y price and hit the second hotkey."
  6. But wait! There's more! @Alastair @peterB I actually do have a hotkey that will place down R levels. It's a bit of a hack but it works! And being such a visual person, these are a godsend for helping me get to my R goals. The way it works is if you are in a position with a stop loss set, it utilizes your SIM account to place the target levels at 1R, 2R, etc. Look below - the green arrow is obviously my entry, and the blue arrow is my stop loss in my live account. And then when I hit the hotkey it will place two orders at 1R and 2R (orange arrow) with 1 share using my SIM account. Basically it does the math calculation for 1R and 2R, swaps the montage to my SIM account, places the orders, then puts the montage right back to my live account. The 1 share orders never get filled (I'm actually not sure why...), so as the price gets to the 1R and 2R markers you can take a partial or full exit, and it will be executed in your live account. After the trade is done just cancel the orders. Long StopPrice=AvgCost-StopPrice;Price=AvgCost+StopPrice;Share=1;TIF=DAY+;Route=Stop;StopType=Limit;Account=TRIBTXXXX;Sell=Send;Account=UXXXXXXX;StopPrice=StopPrice*2;Price=AvgCost+StopPrice;Share=1;TIF=DAY+;Route=Stop;StopType=Limit;Account=TRIBTXXXX;Sell=Send;Account=UXXXXXXX Short StopPrice=StopPrice-AvgCost;Price=AvgCost-StopPrice;Share=1;TIF=DAY+;Route=Stop;StopType=Limit;Account=TRIBTXXXX;Buy=Send;Account=UXXXXXXX;StopPrice=StopPrice*2;Price=AvgCost-StopPrice;Share=1;TIF=DAY+;Route=Stop;StopType=Limit;Account=TRIBTXXXX;Buy=Send;Account=UXXXXXXX
  7. Yeah, the current solution is to use the Fib. These are my settings it - you click and drag from your entry point to your stop level. Looks like this
  8. Like, you just want to set an order in the future to go long for a fixed $, but the stop is a fixed amount... like 20c?
  9. And to further make things worse... (at least from those on IB) The .dat file DAS gets from IB listing every stock's margin rate is wrong in many cases. DAS will show 100% margin rate when in actuality it's 300%. Last week I finally managed to connect someone at DAS support and someone at IB support to communicate to each other about the problem. And now "This issue remains under review."
  10. @JasonH How did the fixed vs tiered with IB results go?
  11. Long DefShare=BP*0.97;Price=Price-StopPrice;SShare=20/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=Price+StopPrice; StopPrice=Price; Share=SShare; TogSShare; Price=Price;TIF=DAY+;Route=Stop;StopType=Market; Buy=Send; Share=DefShare;Price=Share/100; StopPrice=Price; DefShare=400;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; Short DefShare=BP*0.95;Price=StopPrice-Price;SShare=30/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;TIF=DAY+;Route=Stop;StopType=Market; Sell=Send; Share=DefShare;Price=Share/100; StopPrice=Price; DefShare=400;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0 ACT:BUY STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+;
  12. That's correct - with IB it'll automatically tick up for your when a stock is on SSR.
  13. Double clicking is just to set the price in the montage. You still need to hit a hotkey with an appropriate script to execute with that price.
