  1. Hi, Does anyone have access to the colour charts etc for Thor's new book? I can't find them anywhere on the BBT website or the chat room drive Thanks, Jack L
  2. Hi! I was wondering if anyone (or Kyle) knows how Kyle's fixed risk hotkeys for stocks/ETFs on DAS Trader could be adapted to trade futures. The futures i'm interested in trading are the micro E-mini S&P futures which have a 'ticker' constructed by # symbol followed by M (for mini), ES (code for S and P futures) followed by a letter for the expiration month (currently it is M) followed by a number for the year (currently it is 2 for 2022) = #MESM2 For NASDAQ futures, it is the same process but with NQ instead of ES = #MNQM2 The fixed risk hotkey that i'm interested in adapting is the simple one where you double click on the chart where you want your stop and then when you press the hotkey it calculates your share size. I don't think interactive brokers allows you to purchase or short fractional futures so the hotkey would have to round up/down to the nearest whole number The hotkeys I use are the following: Long: StopPrice=Price-0;DefShare=BP*0.925;Price=Ask-Price+0.00;SShare='insert fixed risk value in $'/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+; Short: StopPrice=Price+0;DefShare=BP*0.925;Price=Price-Bid+0.00;SShare='insert fixed risk value in $'/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=Bid-0.05;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send;DefShare=200;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice+0.05 ACT:BUY STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; If someone could help in doing this I would be extremely thankful (as a european/UK resident I cannot trade SPY/QQQ ETFs so SP futures are the best alternative for an extremely similar day trading experience/chart and I seem to have became profitable in simulator trading these market ETFs but not trading stocks which I find harder) Thank you, Jack L
  3. Hi guys, I've got Das Trader Pro for IB. Can I just confirm that they have not added replay mode to the latest version of this? When I try and switch from normal to replay it says I don't have permission It is a bit odd that they haven't done this yet but that it is available on the simulator version Does anyone know if I can buy some kind of upgrade to get access to this?
  4. Thank you, thats really helpful (I am quite new to all this)
  5. Hi guys I'm using the sell 'fraction' of your order without moving stop loss to break even hot key with it set to 1/2 partial on one key and 1/4 on another key In both when I make the order it removes my original stop loss (removes it altogether) Having to then manually create a new stop order is really annoying in the middle of the trade Does anyone know what is happening? Here are the scripts i'm using CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=BID-0.05;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*.5;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send CXL ALLSYMB;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=BID-0.02;Price=Round2;Share=Pos*.25;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send The move stop to break even partial scripts work fine btw, i'm just having trouble with the partials that don't move stop loss Thank you!
