  1. As a community that is mainly DAS based as opposed to any other platform I think it would be awesome if we were to be able to band together to get the most of requests from DAS. IBKR has this with TWS as well as Sierra and Tradingview etc... I have heard from many mod and community members alike that we all ask for features or bug fix requests and feel that strength in numbers as shown by polls or comments and support; could help expedite the solutions. I was recently listening to Andrews webinar on his trading station where he mentions he's asked for an indicator to show strength of up ticks or the like as well as Thor mentioning bug fixes for Cam points and other issues which will most likely get fixed in latest update. Some simple requests I have been asking for, for years. DAS is great in somethings and absolutely horrid in others. Feel free to add your request to this thread and if enough people show interest we can send it to DAS. @Thor @Andrew Aziz @Mike B @Carlos M. @JaradBBT @KyleK29 @Norm @PeterD @Bryan Personal feature requests I'd like to kickstart on -(<1min) charts. We pay for tick data from exchange so why can't we have it like any other platform... -Customizable tool bar time frames. For example the ability to add 10 min charts and take away 30min charts -Finer zoom in scroll wheel. On the two finest zoom in points its either too 'zoomed in' or 'too zoomed out' with no in between. -Notification of new updates in DAS instead of us needing to periodically choose auto update to see if theres a new update -Phone app UI/UX updates. Its unusable. Nothing more needs to be said on this. -Allow for Send to back/Send to back without just 'always on top' which is on top even with other apps on your PC. -Montage allow for grouping of MM's/ECN's for one price level for one aggregate number of shares for each price level -Montage ladder view but with lots... (Can't believe this isn't a thing) -Allow for test stocks like ZVZZT -Market profile charts (TPO)
  2. Anyone using Kelly Criterion. A lot different than the famously touted 1-2% per trade risk. For my #s, im seeing closer to risking 20% of my acct per trader. Curious on your experience with Kelly or any literature on it. http://krisverma88.blogspot.com/2018/08/day-trading-developing-and-tracking.html
  3. So in stead of this: StopPrice=Price-0.01;DefShare=BP*0.97;Price=Ask-Price+0.03;SShare=10/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price= Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=100;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.3 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; ^^^^^ I would have this as the only difference?: StopPrice=Price-0.01;DefShare=BP*0.97;Price=Ask-Price+0.03;SShare=10/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price= Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Load;DefShare=100;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.3 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; ^^^^
  4. Hey @KyleK29 and everyone else I was just wondering if it is possible to make a hotkey fixed risk long button where it just loads the hot key into the montage but does not actually send to market. I looked over the Excel spreadsheet and do not see a modifier drop down option but I do however see in the script where near the end it does say: buy=send. Is there a way to get it to not send? Also when you use DAS' hotkey script builder there is an option for 'mode' drop down for "load and send" or just "load" so that might be what I’m after. Thx Basically in very certain circumstances im trying to get DAS to just show me when I 2x click on the chart where my SL would be how many shares Id be using in the montage in the little green message log but not actually send the order to the market. Thx.
  5. @KyleK29 Ive asked DAS and they obvs told me to ask you. I only use your Hkey to trade. Is there any way to get the hotkey to just tell me how many shares it would take based on the distance to SL from where I clicked but not actually send the order to market. What I'm trying to achieve and why: Sometimes a stock wants to break up through an important level lets say $50. But by the time I hit the Hkey its already at $50.20. So I want to just use the hotkey in these rare instances to show me how many shares it'd execute if I pre-empted the trade at like $49.99 and then just manually type the trade into the montage with a limit order so I don't get skipped. Also, the script has the TIF as Day+ but I want to make it just DAY. I need to do that in my order routing template and change all instances of TIF in the script to DAY as well right? And will this work or screw it up? Thx
  6. Hey Kelly/Simon thx for reply. I got an awesome trading partner and her and I meet up from time to time in south east Edmonton b/c thats where we live. Would love to do a meet up with anyone YEG sometime. If Simon/Kelly are in perhaps the 4 of us can meet next friday afternoon or something? We can work something out. Wanna start a WhatsApp group chat or something you can PM me your numbers?
  7. Recently downloaded and am going through the process of starting to use Sierra charts. With this comes the massive learning curve. I did this for one reason and one only. SUB ONE MINUTE CHARTS. They get the tick feeds, so I don't get why they cant pass it onto us. Especially with their ever lauded Nasdaq co-location. This should be beyond capable for them. I need this data for how I want to trade. Yes I know to most even 1min charts are noise. If the power of this community can help William implement new hotkeys, I'm fairly certain we can get this done.
  8. What you can do is hide the montage behind the watchlist by making the watchlist “always on top”

  10. Any platform, I have DAS and TWS that shows relative pre market volume to see if its of higher interest in the pre market? Thx
  11. I have the oldest POS integrated graphics only desktop. and I am running 4 screens. (go through my post history and youll find pics). Just get a USB 3.0 to HDMI dual splitter adapter. Works fine for me. I only have 2 DP ports on my computer. Thats how I get 4 screens. 2 DP and 2 HDMI.
  12. @Thor said in the video that there was a link to all the scripts someplace. I can't find in education or downloads section. Looking for the free roll script. PLZ and thx
  13. Hey, What do you guys find important? Like strategy, setup, market condition, strength of setup (A+,B...), pattern... What am I missing. How do you guys set it up? Thx
  14. Once youve vetted the stock already to have enough RVOL, volume, within ATR... What are you guys looking for like spread, L2...
  15. Hey guys, just found this thread. I know I'm late, oh well, I just want the community to learn the awesome things Kyle has made. Video won't fit here so I'll just email to Admins and hopefully they can upload it for everyone. https://youtu.be/ypJzZwMCq_Q
  16. Part of my studies leads me to many other sources for information on the markets. On YT I found a day trader that talks about novice VS professional gaps. Premise here being most gaps are pro until you see them being proven as novice or gaps that dumb money would make. The ending day on a parabolic run up like on TSLA the last day it ran to 980. Lets say 5 min before the daily candle closes and prints you see that this will close the day as a insane novice gap and you want to short it for the next day. I'm sure option premiums would be high at that point as they were with TSLA period but wouldn't it being pretty easy to buy puts and sell at open? Or would the premium or some other factor im not thinking about dis allow this strategy from working? I haven't looked into the idea that much. Just got to thinking after TSLA did its thing without me.
  17. Usually we use some sort of old level of price action that acted as S/R in the past. With us being in the greatest fed induced bubble of all time and new highs being made every day how are we supposed to choose levels to take profits. The best I can come up with it fibonacci levels and 1/2,full dollar amts. Sad thing is that I already use my fibs as a gage used to outlined where my 2:1,3:1,... scale out levels would be based on my stop loss as Kyle K mentioned.
  18. That 8 gigs is never enough. Not to say you can’t add more. But when you start adding chrome tabs for finviz/bbt/squawk... and maybe OBS to record. You need 16 min
  19. Any chance you could send/link a video of what it looks like when its working? I cant get it to work. I even did what the video showed me. And downloaded the other C++ file. It just wont auto switch for the screen Im in and only record that. Thx
  20. Hey I cant get the advcanced scene switcher to show up in OBS. Im trying to record 3 screens at once. I downloaded and extracted it but then the file doesnt run or do anything (.dll) Help?
  21. @peterB well, id like first to take a partial the size of the potential loss (for example $20 risk per trade). I can always update and replace the stop loss order size.
