As many of you know, DAS Trader has released a very important learning tool, especially for those who cannot trade in real time during market hours. The new tool "replays" the price action of any stock, so traders can now practice their chart reading skills anytime that’s convenient. Like in real time, you can use your hotkeys, levels, and other indicators to improve your trading performance. If you would like to know more, watch these videos on our YouTube channel here.
How much does it cost? This add-on feature costs $15 per month, but is included free of charge to all BBT traders who purchase their DEMO simulator from the BBT website ($300 for a three month simulator account). This is another great benefit of membership with BBT: the simulator is now $100 per month with the three month package versus the regular $165 per month ($150+$15).
If you are already a BBT sim user you can download latest DAS Sim (production) with market Replay or beta version 18.104.22.168 here. If you have questions about this feature please read this forum post.
For traders who already have a live account, this feature is only available to customers of Interactive Brokers (IBCO) and, as explained above, costs $15 per month. If you are already using DAS for your IB account, please go to the DAS Trader website and select the Add-on Fundamental Data/Market Replay Level 1 package for it here.
Unfortunately, this feature is not currently available for other broker dealers (such as CMEG, CenterPoint, Speedtrader, etc.). Also, Level 2 replay is not yet ready, but we have requested this additional feature from DAS Trader. We hope they implement this feature as soon as possible, since we know reading Level 2 can provide great trading and scalping opportunities for active traders.
If you try the new replay tool and enjoy it, please feel welcome to send DAS Trader a thank-you note or give them a shout out on social media. They have been a great technology provider for active traders for decades, and we look forward to using their future innovations to further benefit our trading performance.
