  1. Hey CliffG,

    Kwam jou net op de Members map in Nederland tegen. Mooi om te zien dat er ook andere BBT'ers net als jij in Nederland zijn. Toevallig hier nog andere Nederlanders tegengekomen? Zou leuk zijn om een groepje traders in Nederland te kunnen vormen. Fijne avond nog!

      Hi David,

      Sorry, I don't speak Dutch. While I do live in the Netherlands - South Holland, I have not yet learnt the language. I've been here 4 years so far. I'm originally from the UK (but not lived there for 15yrs).

      I know there is another Member who lives near Lieden, I think his name in the chat room is Winston. 

      I currently live in Zoetermeer, how about you?

      Hi Cliff,

      no worries, I speak English too.Sorry for the delay in answer, I was busy doing all the education-video's, absorbing all that stuff! So welcome in the Netherlands ;).  So you are here for work? Ah, Zoetermeer,... I'm from Rotterdam. Ah, am gonna try to say hi to Winston too. But how did you wind up at BBT? How did your trading journey went?

  2. Figured out I can share a link from whatsapp to allow folks to join directly. https://chat.whatsapp.com/Fi9aBhpfkJwKOZErAnEdME
  3. I understand the audio and video are a bit out of sync and Carlos is working on restoring the session. I'm awaiting this one too (living in Europe and cannot view live).
  4. Here in The Netherlands, my lag is approx. 150 to 180ms. It's rare that it goes over 200, but on occasion it may. Don't feel it hurts my trading too much.
  5. Thanks JC, Had a look through the sheet. Really amazing work there
  6. Installed Power Toys and just tried this out.. Awesome - I can get a little OCD when it comes to aligning everything on screen.
  7. Thanks Jason, This is the one I've been using to align....
  8. These 2 will be very useful for me: Moving Avg Pair study - added option to play alert when cross over occurs. Added option to open multiple Trades, Orders and Positions window. Added vertical dragging for chart. - I thought this was always there (right click price axis and move up/down), if something different, appreciate if someone can explain how.
  9. Hi Joerg, I heard similar when it comes to the difference between DAY and DAY+. I've only been using DAY, even in the pre-market. I was very surprised to find I'm still getting charged the reduced commissions even in Pre and Post markets (maybe it's allowed within certain timeframes like after 8am, etc ???). My Route in my SETUP > ORDER TEMPLATE is like this: (Set to LAMP) All my hotkeys mention either MARKET or LIMIT as the ROUTE (NOT LAMP), but I still get the reduced commissions. I was like you, very uneasy at first and I was also terrified of making a mistake. In the end, I remember taking a couple of small trades (no more) once I had my account, and waiting until the next day when I can see my account statement to confirm what commissions I'm paying. Hope that helps.
  10. Hi Dustin, DAS is fantastic, and once you get the hang of it, I think you'll love it. I'll try to answer your questions: 1. I'm not aware of a way to get a distinction in the watchlist between Shortable and non-shortable stocks. You can easily see if a stock is shortable on the Level 1. (see pic). edit: One thing I used to do, was have a empty line separator in my watchlist between Stocks where I can either Long or Short, and those which are not shortable. 2. This is a hotkey script I would use: CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=BID-0.01;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*.25;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send;ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=AvgCost;Share=Pos-share;TIF=DAY+;SELL=SEND It cancels any orders currently in place, then sells 25% of my position at LIMIT Bid price up to 0.01 of the Bid. Then it sets a new Stop Loss at Break Even. 3. I don't use IB, But I believe so. Best to be answered by someone who can definitively confirm. Hope that help.
  11. Definitely, May I also suggest to cover (in brief) any alternatives to SteamDeck?
  12. I'm British, but live in NL. I feel it would be nice to be more connected to a nearby group of traders who face similar issues with regards to time-zone (and day jobs that interfere) challenges. But at the same time, we also have some advantages, such as better preparation time before the market open. Looking to set up a whatsapp group where we can discuss trading and trading prep with others in similar timezones. If you're interested, perhaps sent me a Direct Message with phone no. and I can set one up and add others along the way.
  13. I opened a CMEG account, I think the whole process took about a month.. But that's because I live in NL and I'm British, and they wanted two forms of NL ID (I only had 1, my Driving licence). Eventually, they allowed me.
  14. These are great, thanks Matthew. Just one point, on the falling angel, you say in the intro, to go short, I presume you mean long
  15. Saw this on a recent BZ webinar. It's about utilizing Benzinga's Screener to see stock with increasing volume over a particular timeframe. The below example is where the volume of shares trades is ever increasing from the 90day average, then higher on the 90, higher still on the 30, and then at it's highest on the 10day average. Filtering for stocks over >$10, with over 1M shares volume, and a float over 50M (not shown in this screenshot).. Sorting by Change %, I feel it provides a few new ideas on some stocks to trade.
