  1. 1. Why trade alone? Collectively we can learn so much more. 2. Come find out what you may not know. Join our community to grow, collaborate, share, and trade consistently.
  2. a couple of ways to do this -- you can set one account to be your default so it would take positive action from you to go to the other account. secondly, you can create 2 sets of hotkeys -- one for sim, one for live. You can modify all your hotkeys to explicitly execute against one account (i.e. add the ACCOUNT=XXXXXX; parameter) and load the right hotkey for the mode you want to be in. At the end of the day, there's not foolproof way since DAS has no idea which mode you want to be in. You have to explicitly tell it, or bind it to your orders. Hope this helps.
  3. definitely CBOE and CBOT future, but it also states NASDAQ will be delayed 15 min -- that's the main kicker.
  4. I had this exact same question which is why I came onto the forum. Was about to post the same thing. I also have the IB package signed up via BBT. This is disappointing for sure, but the fact that they sent this out on a Friday evening to be in effect on Monday morning is very odd. Why do they not give customers any warning to resolve this issue? Seems that if the purpose to get us to pay more, at least give Users a chance to respond over a few business days?? Do any of the moderators or folks who have better connections with DAS management have any insight? Thanks @Andrew Aziz @Carlos M.@abielguerra
  5. Hi all, I just went through and tried to test the hotkeys from Advanced Lesson 6: DAS Dynamic Hotkeys – Equalized Risk Per Trade. Here's the hotkey below from the lesson and is working for share calculation, but the STOP that it's putting in isn't executing. The order just sits there and fails to trigger. Any thoughts/ideas?Does the Route (in image) look right? Don't know what "SMAT" means. Should it say "STOP" instead of "SMAT"? I'm not too familiar with DAS order terminology. StopPrice=Price-0;DefShare=BP*0.925;Price=Ask-Price+0.00;SShare=100/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price= Ask+0.10;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=200;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.10 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; Image below Long Entry @ 322.42 STOP ORDER @ 322.35 was automatically added as expected but never triggered/executed when price hit -- see attached image. I'm on IB DAS V5.4.3.0 Thanks!
  6. Thanks all for coming out and to Ed for making it happen. It was a great turnout. Was great to meet many of you in person and be able to put a face behind the name. Till next time. Happy trading. Best, Dan
  7. is there a current headcount? Would be good to let the restaurant know. I told them 20-25 based on some earlier traffic I saw. Thanks
  8. Ok, we're locked in on the VENUE CHANGE. NEW LOCATION, SAME TIME AS BEFORE, Saturday Jan 18, 2020 5PM to 8PM+for dinner and drinks. Derby Restaurant: 2233 6th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134 (It's located in "The Shop" https://theshopclubs.com/). Plenty of free parking onsite/area. We'll be set up in the lounge area (it's not a big restaurant so it'll be obvious). See everyone then! Ed, can you cancel the other reservation and update your original post so everyone has the latest info.
  9. yup on it. Waiting to hear back from their manager within the hour but the lady I spoke with there thinks it'd be available for Saturday evening. They also confirmed they have some high-top tables so we can keep things flowing vice sitting down.
  10. For anyone else finding this thread: Marketable Limit Orders are Market Orders with some price protection (above/below bid/ask). The are not Limit orders with a set price. In DAS Sim/Replay, set them to market if you are getting errors regarding routing (specifically IB routing as I just did).
  11. I'm not too familiar with current Bellevue venues, but have some suggestions if going to Seattle is of interest. For example, this (https://tinyurl.com/umwku44 ) is in the southern part of the city, so parking is free/easy and the food/drink/beer selection is good. It's a Car club w/ restaurant/garage/storage. There's a lounge area that we could essentially take over. Can call and see if it's still available and if they have some standing tables. There's also some cool cars in storage -- including several lambos from the chat session earlier today. Downside is the surrounding area is pretty dead so we'd have to drive elsewhere if plan was to hop around after dinner. In Lincoln square (current venue), there are lots of other options within walking distance.
  12. Hey all, Dan here on the west coast. Been swing&value trading for 20+ years and never had the bandwidth for daytrading. Don't understand the current market valuations and macro conditions have been skittish to me the past several months. Makes me skeptical of holding long positions for extended periods. Have been dropping equities and needed another way to put cash to work so here I am learning the daytrading ropes. Am an engineer by training and I run a software and data analytics company (not in finance sector). Appreciate the wealth of information and resources on here and looking forward to crossing paths with the rest of you in the days ahead. Cheers!
