  1. Honestly I have not had any issues at all, but what really sucks is TD's short list. As long as their shortlist doesn't bother you then I think you are golden. Now I will say this, I have not had a position more than 500 shares yet. According to TD they are saying 96.9% of orders get price improvement using 1-1,999 shares. I still wish Schwab connected with DAS. Their short list is way better and they have HTB locates at reasonable rates.
  2. Hello everyone. I appreciate any help if possible. After I get in a position and my stop is already in place I use these scripts to help scale me out. For my buy orders CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=ASK+0.05;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*.5;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send For my sell orders CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=BID-0.05;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*.5;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send What I am trying to do is scale out, but keep my stop where it is and only update it's position size. This is something I found in the forum to scale out, only update the stop position size and not move it. It seems to work for sell orders, but I'm try to configure it for buy orders and can't seem to get it to work. Can someone help me out and is it even correct? CXL ALLSYMB;Route=LIMIT;Share=Pos*.25;Price=Bid-0.05;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send;ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Market;StopPrice=StopPrice;Share=Pos-share;TIF=DAY+;SELL=SEND
  3. I was using SSE and currently somewhat still using it because I do like their scanners, but now I am using DAS with TD, and its a world of difference. I do feel SSE has so much potential though. They just need to speed it up. It lags way too much.
  4. That's who I'm currently using and I'm pretty impressed, but it has only been about a week so I'll have a better idea after a month.
  5. I don't know if I confused myself, but yes I believe you are correct. For some reason I thought that you already had a stop from an open position and were going to use a hotkey that didn't cancel any previous stop orders, but then added to your position and placed a new stop.
  6. I checked out both scripts and they seem the exact same other than for the ;CXL ALLSYMB at the beginning like you said. Why would you not want to cancel the original stop loss orders though with the CXL ALLSYMB at the beginning of the script? If you take it off what happens when you add to your position since the add script has a stop loss order , but no cancel of the original one? Will you now have 2 stop loss orders? Something I've notice also, some scripts start with ;CXL ALLSYMB while others start with CXL ALLSYMB. I didn't know if this was a typo error or if that is the way its supposed to be. Should the ; actually be in front of the CXL ALLSYMB command?
  7. My problem is different, I want every time I go to a new ticker it changes to a default view of a day, or two days. I don't want it to keep the same zoom as the previous ticker.
  8. I've done this a few times and don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but after you load, it seems the only way to have it go through is to use the Enter key, because the mouse click doesn't work. Sometimes it seems the order goes through if you use enter, but then no stop is attached. Either way I'm loving these scripts; I'm mind blown and very appreciative of all who thought of, contributed, encouraged, shared, motivated, developed and assisted into bring this to life. I actually just started using DAS Trader with TD Ameritrade, so it took a little bit of understanding to change some of these scripts to how I needed, but I can honestly say the experience has been well. After 2 days of modifying and customizing everything for how I trade, the scripts in combination with the speed of DAS actually helps better than I expected. I even keep the Think or Swim Application open just to monitor everything and DAS has it beat every time. The combination of a better platform with these amazing Hotkey scripts makes 2021 look more promising. Thanks to all!!!
  9. I was curious to know if the script was updated to not only place the market order, but also add a line for the stop or marker on the chart that indicates the stop area or price? Also I wanted to know if I only use the script to load, but not send and I wait for a particular area of entry then decide to execute the order by clicking the buy or sell button will it still execute at the right position size based on the stop area and my risk amount?
