  1. https://scanz.com/market-internals/
  2. I am looking into Interactive Broker's API to see if it would be worth getting to begin to program custom scanning/monitoring/alert system tools specifically for day trading. Does anyone have familiarity with the IB API? Or have you used something different than has worked for you?
  3. Yes, it is possible to partial out and have a stop set. [Need to be careful not to flip position due to share size imbalance after partial]. Although the way I have it set is 1 hot key to cancel stop and partial and another hot key to re enter my stop to breakeven point. I also have another hot key to just place a stop wherever I click on the chart.
  4. I'd love a webinar dedicated to the journey of our mods. It could be structured as: 1.Backstory of how they got into trading 2.Their path from SIM to Live, 3. The grueling first year 4. The intermediary phase where they became more profitable 5. All the unique pitfalls they faced along the way 6. Where they currently are at now. It doesn't have to be a webinar, but could even be a dedicated spotlight section on the website, interviewee/sleek editing style. I think it's interesting to see how far people have come, and in their stories there are always nuggets of truth that help other traders along the way. Sorry for calling you out mods! But you guys rock and love to learn from you guys.
  5. It really depends on how you trade, I am curious, William, how is ToS beyond the market open? Is trading in the first 10 minutes critical to your trading strategy? The one thing I do love about DAS is the hotkeys to enter a trade that automatically calculate risk based on my buying power and stop loss. Order execution never seems to be an issue either. Beyond that though, I think DAS is sub par in its scanning tools, signals, news, fundamentals etc. (Basically everything not to do with trade execution) One thing I have been doing recently, is because I had a ToS account from long ago, I use that for scanning and prepping, and then do all my trading in DAS, but I am wondering if I need DAS at all, as I don't necessarily need to trade the first 10 minutes for my trading strategy to work, but I think I will stick with DAS in the mean time, since I don't want to change something that is working.
  6. Here are my suggestions: Header: Trade With The Power of Community Sub Header: Learn, Grow, and Adapt with Us Header: Trade With The Power of Community Sub Header: Are You Ready? Increase Your Edge, Perfect Your Trading With a Community for Serious Traders Header: Trade With The Power of Community Sub Header: Traders Focused on Process Over Profit And then underneath these taglines you could put key essential points in a stylistic way, of what makes BBT special: Our Dedicated moderators Meetups Internationally, Our Resource Sharing, Etc, Etc.
  7. Hi Debbie, check out Kyle's Youtube video going over the details of how his hotkeys work. This is probably a really good primer for everyone else too who is unfamiliar with his hotkeys, I'd definitely recommend watching it before the Webinar!

  9. Mike, I agree, I think the folder structure should be completely gone, just didn't know if you wanted it that way for a specific reason. Also, for what to add for tracking statistics, the general idea is all that is needed, e.g. emotions, erros on trade. Keep it generic and allow the user to add what they feel is necessary. Whatever they add just gets attached to that trade in a table for lookup later. New idea: Can the program simply read the das spreadsheet only once, and add that data be placed in a persistent db like mysql? Then all future lookups can be run on Db, no excel sheet needed. This will remove the redundant need of constantly having to read in external sheets every time you want to look at trades.
  10. Market knowledge from decades ago still rings true today--some things never change(SnapBack)! I'd poke holes in your analysis if I knew what the hell I was talking about. Good stuff. As a new trader, I am observing how much the market has power over individual stocks. Analysis could be on the money and then the market just takes it wherever it wants to go.
  11. Hey Mike, I have some ideas to make this more intuitive for an end user. I think the program should automatically create folder structure and names for the end user while also giving the user the option to edit this file structure if they so choose. This will allow the end user a much more user-friendly experience. Perhaps they only pick the parent folder where everything will be housed. So a dialogue box could appear at the beginning asking if they just want to use the default file structure and they hit OK and are on their way, you create the folders for them automatically, as well as log names and database names. You could have an advanced button that lets them edit file structure if they choose. But I think most end users just want the program to work initially, they don't want to have to set up all these things. Need to give end user error and how to fix on file structure page. Pressing 'OK' and then nothing happens is confusing. One of the big things I want in journal software is to be able to track statistics. I would love another page that lets me analyze statistics of different strategies. This would mean creating database structures for more things.l. I want to be able to enter into the DB on my error: FOMO or Greed, DAS key error etc similarly to how you enter strategy into DB. That way on the statistics page I can go back and look at how many trades had those qualities in them. Also the statistics page can include a lot just by what data is already collected with P&L, time frames, Price, average Risk:Reward etc over time. On opening, can you have it automatically load the charts? Pressing update to see my charts is annoying! I think there should be an R:R value for actual, right now it calculates theoretical with 'Target' instead of what actual profits were gained on the trade. Hey, thanks for helping me get this to work, I will continue to use it and if you're interested let you know of any bugs or ideas I have.
  12. Hey Mike, I got a BarCharts API and set it in structjour, however, when I click 'Update' on one of the chart windows, the command prompt shows: QWindowsWindow::setGeometry: Unable to set geometry 2560x1429+0+29 (frame: 2578x1476-9-9) on QWidgetWindow/"MainWindowWindow" on "\\.\DISPLAY2".

Edit: I added 'bc' to my preferences at the bottom of the stock api window and it seems to have worked..I see my chart!
