  1. I have tried these two in my real account with limited success. In SIM, it seems to work perfectly. Have you had any other feedback regarding these trailing stops? I am using IB on DAS
  2. until

    I can't even find the going button.
  3. until

    I will be going if you will let me! Can I bring my son? He is in NYC now. From Peter D : Michael- all are welcome. Please bring your son (assuming he is of legal age to be in the bar!)
  4. I am actually a SoCal Member. I will be visiting the Bay Area because I am a Phillies Baseball Fan as well as a lifetime BBT member. Love to meet some Bay Area BBT Traders and talk trading. I will be at Oracle Park for the games and available any other time to grab a beer and talk trading.
  5. I am coming into LA for a few days from June 14 to 16. I am a retiree from the Philadelphia area and my beloved Phillies are playing the Dodgers. I am spending a couple nights at the Hollywood Hotel and would love to meet some of our members for a drink or something...or even at the game. I can't miss my Phillies! Let me know if anyone is interested!! Love to talk trading!!
  6. [email protected] I am in Coachella Valley...and seemingly all alone.
  7. I am using two HP monitors (HPL2445) that I bought recently from a FaceBook marketplace post. They are identical but one has some damage to the video screen on some places. The are very old and pretty heavy. They are all being run through a single USB 3.0 hub with indivudual USB to VGA adapters. The monitors come on some nice swivel stands which allow for the compact setup. The final monitor above is an AOC USB monitor also being run through the same hub but requires no adapter, just a little software install. I plan on using this setup when I travel to NJ where I used to live and my parents still live.
  8. I am trading on a great desktop for the opening...but my wife has to teach during the day and uses my room. I am including my configuration here and a picture of a setup. For me, it is the connectivity which is either wifi or lan (same speed really at home) so I use my laptop. More important than the robust processor and RAM is the ability to use USB 3.1 for video. My late morning trading station is my laptop in this configuration. I've made some good trades using this setup.
  9. Has anyone else experienced some sluggishness with the DAS replay? If so, is there a fix for it?
  10. How do you access the settings menu in DAS when it is too big for your laptop screen. I need to fix this so that I can get my trades on my laptop to chartlog and other settings that appear on the bottom, including the apply/commit buttons?
  11. I traded today in SIM only and it was clean and elegant. Lot's of new features...specifically in the charts that make it good. Today was supposed to be my first day live, but IB account doesn't automatically go into DAS on day one...or so they say! I will definitely be ready for tomorrow. Still not sure about quote mode. I am more interested in the Chartlog myself.
  12. Everything is now working...at least on my desktop. I'm just nervous because tomorrow is my first day of trading my live account. It's about to get "real'.
  13. The new DAS for IB was released today. It is 5.5 and I am running AVG antivirus. It is not allowing me to install because it says the file is untrusted and is being evaluated and "starting to crack". I don't know what that means but it doesn't sound good. Anyone else experiencing this? I've tried it on two machines that have both installed DAS for IB successfully just 2 days ago. Same deal. I really wanted this new version for Monday! I have updated this post because I found a workaround. If you are running AVG, you must go into your settings and identify the file by the specific path of the install to allow it to complete the install. You will still get the warning, but, it will allow you to install and it runs fine. It comes with the Data Stream mode and I am running it now. Panic averted!!
