  1. In this video AdventureDogLA shows us how to set up Risk Controls in DAS Trader Pro. Risk Controls enforce limitations such as maximum daily loss, maximum shares traded per day, etc. Risk Control Page is a safety net to keep in control our loses, either to have an external control over our behavior as traders or due to a contingency such as failures in the internet connection, electric power outages, broker failures, etc. You can find "Open Risk Control Page" in DAS Trader Pro Account window, just right-click in any row of that window and Risk Control Page will open as a popup browser window to let you update your risk control settings. Some considerations: 1. This configuration works with real accounts and simulator 2. You can deactivate settings "Risk Control Page" anytime by leaving all in blanks and clicking SUBMIT 3. When you are using DAS linked to IB, or simulator, the Risk Control settings are handled by DAS. DAS staff updates your settings manually (the form is emailed to them) anywhere from 2 to 30 minutes during business hours. 4. In LOSS fields, enter a positive number. 5. “No new order” avoids orders for the current day 6. “Pos Loss” = Position loss. 7. “Enable Auto Stop” will automatically close your positions when you hit the Max Loss / Total Loss. 8. “Max Share - Max auto stop execution share per day” = How many shares can be sold / bought by the Auto Stop mechanism. 9. “Max Auto Stop Order Size” = Maximum size per order made by the Auto Stop mechanism. 10.“Delay for next order if exceed max order size (sec)” = Time between orders if the Auto Stop needs to place multiple orders to close your positions. 11. “Stop Gain Account Net Realized PL Thresh“, “Drawdown Percent of Max Net PL“ , “Pos Stop Gain Thresh “ and “Drawdown” - Like Auto Stop but for gains. The threshold is the profit the Stop Gain is looking to hit, the Drawdown is how much it can drop from that target before your positions are closed. Example, you set a threshold of 2000 and drawdown of 20(%). When you make 2000 in P/L, the Stop Gain will trigger, and will close your positions if you drop 20% ($400) from that value, closing you out at $1600 Net P/L.

  9. Article about three studies that highlight the benefits of accepting emotions and thoughts, rather than judging them, on psychological health. When a stressful situation causes negative emotions, accepting feelings of frustration or upset — rather than trying to pretend you’re not upset, or beating yourself up for feeling this way — reduces guilt and negative self-image. Over time, this will in turn lead to increased psychological health. Feeling okay about feeling bad is good for your mental health

  14. These hotkeys are risk based ($$ or account %). If your account size significantly changes and you want to risk more, or less, yes, you can change (edit) the risk criteria in your hotkeys. I hope this answers your question.

    New broker: CenterPoint Securities

    What is your source for the PDT rule is only for USA citizens? I asked IB USA, I´m in México and they told me PDT apply. PDT apply as long the broker is based in USA. With Brokers like CMEG based outside USA PDT does not apply.

    How to go Live Psychologically?

    Trading small is a must. We all know that the max you can risk in a trade is 1 or 2% of your account. But you don't have to risk 1%, even 0.5% right at the start of your live trading. For me it's better to risk a low amount of $ per trade, whatever you feel comfortable with ($10, 20, 30 USD, etc.). These hotkeys help you to calculate the # of shares based on risk on $ or %: DAS - Dynamically Calculate Shares on %Risk or $Risk - Hot Key + Configuration, Updated 10/30, v1.2 Choose your stocks: stocks with huge movements can be scary for new traders. Avoid huge ATR stocks like Tesla, BABA, SQ. In your early stages as new trader you need to learn and survive, stocks with decent ATR won't get you a lot of money but will help you to develop your trading muscle. Taking big loses at early stages of the trader career can be undermining for learning and mindset, so going small on not too wild stocks is the way to go for new traders. You don't climb everest as your first mountain, it takes a lot of training and preparation.
