  1. Okey doke, I’ve been adjusting it manually. Was just curious if there was a more automated way to do it. Thanks
  2. For this hot key (Buy fixed risk $50, take profit at 1R), is there a way to configure it to take 75% of profit at 1R instead of the full 100%?

  3. Hey - you can call DAS at 702-943-1881 and have it set up to be charged to a credit card instead of through Paypal
  4. Not that it accomplishes the same thing, but when I have to leave my computer for a bit, I set a trailing stop loss. I haven't had a problem with it working correctly (yet?).
  5. @Skye You can trade with under $25K on a cash account. Just "play" with half your account value every day so your money has time to clear. I.E. if you have $15K, use $7.5K per day to trade with and you will have money cleared to play with every day (because it takes 2 days for funds to clear when your account is a cash account instead of a margin account).
  6. @hailchaser2 Thanks for the input and info. I started using ChartLog when I switched to IB/DAS about 4 months ago, so hopefully I at least have that hurdle covered. Good luck going live again and post updates on how it's going for you!
  7. I moved from TD/TOS to IB/DAS about 4 months ago. Assuming the cost for the DAS platform is relatively the same - the commissions really aren't anything in the grand scheme of things. My bad trading is what's killing me, not the commissions at all. I dealt with the lag at the bell with TD/TOS for about a year and it's SO nice to not have to deal with that now! To not have to sit there with an order in and you can't see it nor cancel it and panic for 5-10 minutes before something goes through, and you never know where it's going to end up cuz you've hit Flatten 10 times by then - paying the minimal commissions for IB is fine with me! Plus having the brokerage and platform support with this community is great.
  8. WOW at the difference between All Trades and Tradebook Only trades. I'd love to hear your thoughts/see what you developed during the PCT Bootcamp, I'm doing it on this next go around coming up. As for your not being able to stay away from trades outside of your Tradebook - how long had you been trading before you did the Bootcamp? I'm coming up on 2 years trading and for some reason I don't understand, I've found this calm and have started only letting myself trade "my trades" (playbook in my head, I don't have a real one...yet). Depending on how long you've been trading, I'm thinking the change finally comes along when you've lost enough money and get sick of telling yourself every night "tomorrow I'm GOING to do it this way!"
  9. Hey - I can't answer your question (sorry!) but I'm curious...you're using DAS with TD? I'm assuming you have to pay the monthly fee for DAS right? But TD's still not charging commissions using DAS?
  10. Holy cow...OMG, the commission calculator spreadsheet - my inner math geek is about to take over and my afternoon is shot now! Thank you Abiel and BBT (and make sure to tell William thanks for a GREAT video and spreadsheet resource!)
  11. Abiel - Awesome - well not really, but you're awesome answering all these questions so quickly - thank you!
  12. Do you pay more commissions/fees (DAS/IB) if you partial out a lot, or is it computed strictly on the amount of shares traded?
  13. This is AMAZING! @KyleK29 Thank you so much for all the work you (and others) put in to this! I've been trading/learning to trade for a little over a year now and am finally switching myself over to DAS/IB - and I can't even tell you how amazing I think this all is! Provides such an edge for trading! Ok, I'll stop with all the exclamation marks I've been practicing with these in SIM for the past week and it makes things so much easier. This was probably the deepest thinking I've done in years trying to catch up with your mind and make this all work - but obviously not anything near the amount of work you put in making all this work and putting the "instructions" together for everyone to use. Thank you!
