  1. Hi, I know this question might not strictly be a 'Swing Trading' question, but it is related to IPOs nevertheless. Nowdays SPAC-based IPOs are more and more frequent, for example NKLA was put on the market through a merger with SPAC VTIQ. Let's use this process as an example for my question below. My question is: how is the transition happening on the exchange? I believe it would be the case that the SPAC is already listed (in the above example, VTIQ), and one can trade it on the exchange. Then, they merge with their 'target', in this example with Nikola Motors. Afterwards, is it the case that VTIQ is simply 'renamed' NKLA on the exchange? That is, if someone already owns VTIQ shares before the merger / renaming takes place, he'll just be having NKLA instead of VTIQ afterwards, automatically? Would it be always a 1:1 conversion, or something different? Thank you, Ákos
  2. I tried it, but I'm getting a 'Can't get valid price' error for the FREE Roll + Long script, see screenshot. What could I be missing? Is there some 'documentation' on this topic?
  3. thank you. I tried it, but I'm getting a 'Can't get valid price' error for the FREE Roll + Long script, see screenshot. What could I be missing? Is there some 'documentation' on this topic?
  4. of course I have. that's why I double-click in the first place I'm using double click with Kyle's script that calculates the amount of shares based on my risk value. but, sometimes it switches to another stock, and thus can't use it properly.
  5. Hi, I wonder if others have also encountered this issue. Sometimes when I double-click on a chart, then my 'selected' stock changes to another one. E.g. the chart (and the montage) was showing TSLA, I double-click on the chart, and then the chart & montage are now showing NIO (or something else). I wonder if others have also experienced this issue, and if there is a fix. Akos
  6. Hi, I heard references to Thor's famous add-on hot keys, that would allow one to add to an existing position based on unrealized profit, but not risking more than the unrealized profit. But I can't really find it anywhere. I wonder if someone would share a link. Best regards, Akos
  7. Hi, I wonder if there is a way to keep a stop 'pinned' to an SMA or an EMA? What I'm looking for is to have an automatism, that would move a stop so that it's at (or some pre-defined distance to) an SMA or an EMA, as the SMA or EMA value changes. This way, one could automate a strategy where one simply keeps the stop moving along the SMA or EMA, to provide a safe stop. This would be different to a 'trailing stop' with a fixed distance to the price, as it would follow an average value / curve. Ákos
  8. Hi, I just installed DAS Trader on a new machine (temporary relocation), and for some reasons I don't see the trades on my charts. When I open Study Config -> Price, there is no check box for 'Show trades', as shown here: https://dastrader.mobi/doc/study/Price It's also not showing my current orders. What am I missing? Akos
  9. Hi, Sometimes, when I'm maxing out my buying power, and I try to partial out, it gets rejected due to lack of buying power. As if I'd be trying to add - but actually I'm trying to close the position, partially or in full. For example, to partial 25% of the position, I'm using this script: ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=Ask+0.10;Share=Pos*.25;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send How can one create a script that would allow partialling out in such cases? Akos
  10. thanks, in the meantime I got a download link for from Alliance Traders - should be good to go still, I'd be interesting way to debug / trace of these scripts, for development purposes
  11. Hi, I'm stuck using DAS Trader 5.2, as this is what Alliance Trader provides. I'm trying to use Kyle's scripts, which worked nicely for me in DAS Trader 5.5 (in the demo trainer), but they don't work in 5.2. Is there a way / a facility to debug these scripts in this particular version of DAS Trader, so that I can see what goes wrong? Any pointers welcome. Akos
  12. Hi, I signed up to Alliance Traders, and the DAS Trader version that's available from their website is version 5.2, whereas the current version is 5.5. I wonder if I can use version 5.5. somehow. If I download the current version from the DAS web site and log in with my Alliance credentials, it lets me log in, and then tells me that a wrong trader is set. I wonder if somehow one can reconfigure the current version to work with Alliance Traders. Akos
  13. I wonder if there is a BBT special deal / code for Alliance Traders, similar to CME?
  14. a follow up question: currently I'm entering these trades with the following script: go long with a $100 risk: 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+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=200;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.05 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; now, if I enter a trade, and I use your script to partial out - great. but if I want to add more to the trade, my stop will not be updated. how would one update the existing stop, when adding into the trade?
