  1. I just plugged in the URL and you can request access to the sheet with a message. Try that? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19i3rRFIJnkoGiYT3l9MJN782nZn_yXL6/edit
  2. Yeah, even at 166 shares it became cheaper. Still will be interested to see your fees when you trade on fixed though. It's not always so clear cut with IB
  3. 200 shares seems to be the threshold 200*$0.005= $1.00 Definitely will be interesting to see your results. You don't need to request fixed pricing though - it's default on new accounts. Also you can change it at will in your account settings.
  4. So I've adjusted the sheet to only have $1 for the initial order. However it's still not quite cheaper depending on how often you partial. Because you will still pay $1 for each of those.
  5. No, I got that information by asking IB Support's chat system.... But because of what you said about CMEG, I reached out to IB a second time to confirm.... And support said the complete opposite this time around IB support is the worst. I'm currently back in chat. I'll let ya know.
  6. Make your range order a triggers order. The stop will only be placed after you enter a trade.
  7. @JasonH I think you're missing the fact that when you buy 100 shares you wont get it all in one lump. You will get 40 in one transaction, 50 in another, and the final 10 in a third. You will pay $1 on each of those transactions... Here is a small trade I took on TWTR last week in tiered. And what the actual pricing would be in fixed. As you can see Tiered is $5.06 and Fixed is $8.14.
  8. That's exactly what this thread is about. On the first page you can go download Kyle's hotkey spreadsheet; it's all in there. And there are training videos at the bottom of the post.
  9. Hey justin! So im trying to get a hotkey (for futures actually) that buys X amount of shares (contracts) and then use a limit /range order on the average. Im using the following:

    To buy long 2 contracts: 



    And the long range order for 2R is:

    CXL ALLSYMB; Route=Limit;Share=Pos;Price=AvgCost-StopPrice;Price=Price*2;Price=Price+AvgCost;Price=Round2;Route=Stop;StopType=Range;LowPrice=StopPrice;HighPrice=Price;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send;ROUTE=LIMIT


    So my perfect setup would be hotkey to buy 2 contracts or X amount and then another hotkey define 2R / 3R etc....with a stoploss as I would do normally with stocks. Any ideas?

      You know... I know absolutely nothing about Futures and Options. So I really can't advise the best course here. I would suggest posting a thread in the forums 🙂

  10. I haven't tested this, but potentially StopPrice=AvgCost*.95
  11. I'm sure a lot of you know already, but DAS released a new version today (version It comes with a ton of changes that you can see here (https://dastrader.com/notice.html ). Some changes I think people will appreciate: Added vertical dragging for chart. Added OCO script to support secondary order of OCO pair. Bug fix - there is problem when clicking on price axis label area when placing orders and alerts Added support for multi-script trigger orders (up to 5). Fixed RVOL column sorting in Market Viewer. Added support for stop orders in quote replay mode. Added more default settings for chart alert. Download link here: https://dastrader.com/docs/das-download-links/
  12. Well with any hotkey you'll want to test in in sim yourself. But I have been using it live to great success!
  13. Hi Justin,

    I saw some green and red arrows pointing up and down in some of the moderator chart. I am wondering what that is and how to show them in DAS? Is it some type of indicators?

      Hey @letfox

      They are signifying when moving averages cross each other. Sometimes that signifies a reversal in direction.

      If you right click on your chart > Study Config these are the settings I've set:
