  1. Hi, I'm a new memeber here. I'm trying to start small and not complicate with partials and share size. I'm comfortable trading by defining how much capital i want to use per trade, stop loss and profit target. I'm planning to start with a small capital and I don't want to spend time calculating how many shares I could buy. I tried the current risk based hotkeys. I understand It's a great tool but I feel like i'm still not at that point in my trading journey. Does anyone have/know hot keys where I can say ok use 3000 USD to buy me this share and set the stop loss at x.yz and take profit when it hits y.xz. I really liked the hot key where you could double click for your stop loss and it calculates how many shares you could buy. Only problem I have is I want to define my capital/BP. Even in simulator, I don't want to use all I have, I want to see what happens when I use only 10k because that's all I will be able to use when I go live. Thanks in advance.
  2. I have been working today on 2 hotkeys for myself. The script(s) uses the defined R/R script from previous Kyles hotkeys. It performs the following: Cancels any previous orders for the symbol Enters the trade, ensuring total shares bought is equally divisible by 4 (rounded down); this prevents having extra shares hanging around after the range trades complete or stop out. Creates a range order at your stop level for 1/4 of your initial shares bought with a profit level of 2R Creates a range order at your stop level for 1/4 of your initial shares bought with a profit level of 3R Creates a range order at your stop level for 1/4 of your initial shares bought with a profit level of 4R Creates a single order at your stop for the remaining 1/4 shares; This allows you to ride the last 1/4 to whatever level you want before exiting As with Kyles hot key scripts, you double click your chart at the level you want to place your stop then press your button or hot key The Script for the long entry CXL ALLSYMB; StopPrice=Price-0.01;DefShare=BP*0.5;Share=DefShare*0.333*Price*0.01;Price=Ask-Price+0.01;SShare=Share/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;Share=Share/4;Share=Share*4;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price= Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=1000;Price=Ask-StopPrice*2+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=Ask-StopPrice*3+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=Ask-StopPrice*4+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.3 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos*.25 TIF:DAY+; and the Short CXL ALLSYMB; StopPrice=Price+0.01;DefShare=BP*0.5;Share=DefShare*0.333*Price*0.01;Price=Price-Bid+0.01;SShare=Share/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;Share=Share/4;Share=Share*4;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price= bid-0.05;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send;DefShare=1000;Price=StopPrice-Bid*2;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=StopPrice-Bid*3;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;Price=StopPrice-Bid*4;Price=Bid-Price;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:Price HighPrice:StopPrice ACT:BUY QTY:POS*.25 TIF:DAY+;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice+0.3 ACT:BUY STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos*.25 TIF:DAY+; Everything prior to defshare=1000 in each script is completely from the original Risk/Reward Hotkeys except the bit of code that ensures the number of shares is equally divisible by 4. Feel free to give them a try and let me know if there are any issues.
  3. Question: Is there a Hotkey script that automatically sets a stoploss at the VWAP or another moving average? Even better if it continues to track it?
  4. Hello, I recently found the equalised risk hotkeys on YouTube and they've been really helpful with maximising opportunities while managing risk. I was wondering if anyone had a script for adding to positions while managing avg share cost in a similar way? Put simply, I need a hotkey that tells DAS to buy as many shares as possible without bringing the avg share cost past my desired price. If anyone could help I'd be very grateful, equalising risk has already been a game-changer
  5. I can't find anyone complaining about this issue, but I certainly am (to CMEG). According to the Das user manual, TIF Day is for market hours only while DAY+ covers market plus extended trading hours (i.e., premarket and after hours). That is both logical and how every broker I've ever used applied TIF. But CMEG applies Das TIF as such: Day for premarket and market, Day+ for after hours. That is illogical and wrong. It means needing a duplicate set of hotkeys depending on when you're trading. (What's more, I don't even think CMEG's description of how their TIF works is correct; I use Day+ during regular market hours all the time...and am almost certain I've had to switch to Day to close out a trade AH...it's almost as if they've got the TIFs backwards). Anyway, I'm trying to get CMEG to contact Das and fix this problem. Just wanted to let anyone else know who's as frustrated as I.
  6. Hey All! I am struggling to decide what hotkeys to use. Based on the info provided in the education center, I am assuming most people use Kyle's hotkey scripts. I would love to find out if this is accurate or if there are some who use other hotkey scripts. So let me know what you're using! Thanks! Elisabeth Price
  7. Hi guys, i'm new to the stock market and just wanna ask something regarding the hotkeys, i've went through the hotkeys file that kyle made and know there is a hotkey that is 1 to 2 risk reward be it long or short. But is there a way to modify the command such that i just want it to auto calculate the amount of shares i can buy based on the pre set amount, let's say $20, also on the stop loss i've made and my buying capital. As sometimes different stocks cost differently, the amount of shares is different and also sometimes when the preset shares is based on $20 but my buying power could not afford so many shares. So it'll be great if there is a hotkey that could set based on, stoploss, buying capital and also the preset amount. And also I do not want to set the take profit part as i dont want to clear all my shares in 1 go because sometimes the stocks could go way further than 1: 2. Thanks in advance!!
  8. Hey guys, new here and hoping to get some advice I can't seem to find on the feed. Does anyone use a PS4 controller for hotkeys? Do you recommend a stream deck? Thanks!!
  9. I am looking for a TriggerOrder, i want this to be first order doubles my position and i got that to work now the follow up: TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:LIMIT PX:StopPrice-0.12 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:AvgCost-25/Pos QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+; I suspect i can't do AvgCost -25/Pos all in one math equation? I'm not proficient enough with the writing of TriggerOrders to reverse engineer my solution. Do I have to set a variable for my $25/Pos to then set another variable as average cost to then get to STOPPRICE: varible A - varible B? Ultimately my goal is double my position and then set a new stoploss at a dollar risk below average cost, but also would like to know a little more of how the triggerorder scripts work/ written.
  10. Hello all, I've reviewed all of the relevant comments and replies regarding the SSR hot key and I'm not certain what is or is not the correct answer. I do know that the SSR Hotkey in the Beta_V2.1.xlsx as follows does not work. DefShare=BP*0.97;Price=Price-Bid+0.01;SShare=40/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price=Bid-0.05;TIF=DAY+;SELL=Send;DefShare=400; This is the error popup in DAS. Does anyone see the issue in the above script? My desired script would include a stop. Thanks all, Tony
  11. Hi All, I'm making this post seeking assistance with a specific hotkey script that I'm having trouble making. It's a rather simple concept, but despite having it clearly defined in my mind, I am having a hard time finding the resources to execute it. So, here goes... The simple function that I am looking for (in a single hotkey) is this - I would like to: 1.) Be able to select a limit order price by clicking on the chart (and would like it to be ask + 0.05 for long positions, or bid -0.05 for short positions). 2.) Execute the order at a specific share size defined by the quantity related hotkey that is pressed after purchase price is selected by clicking. 3.) Automatically set a stop loss at -$150 for any quantity share size chosen. If anyone is able to help with this, or share their similar hotkey script, I would be extremely grateful! Thanks! - Phil
  12. Hello, Can someone help me out with this Hotkey issue? I'm trying to setup hotkeys, but for some reason nothing pops up on the screen. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the program, but still the same issue. Have anyone encountered the same problem in the past?
  13. Many of you might have already heard of the fantastic DAS Dynamic Hotkey (aka Kyle's Hotkeys), which allows you to place trades setting by fixed dollar amount or percentage you want to risk on each trade. These dynamic scripts take a lot of work of your hands and allow the DAS Trader Pro platform to do all the thinking and calculating for you. Saving you time and allowing you to focus on the actual trade, which is far more critical. Kyle is kind enough to host a Success Webinar for us on Wednesday, March 4th at 8:00 pm. The webinar will structure in two parts, the first session will breakdown the latest dynamic hotkeys, how they work, and the expected action. Part two will be a Q&A in regards to these hotkeys. To better prepare, we asked that you post questions you might already have about these hotkeys below so that Kyle can review before his webinar. Thanks! PS: If you are not yet aware of Kyle's hotkeys, below is the post link. https://forums.bearbulltraders.com/topic/716-das-dynamically-calculate-shares-on-risk-or-risk-hot-key-configuration-updated-91019-v21/
  14. If you encounter a situation where when you try to add a new hotkey, DAS does not save any more new hotkeys, here is what you need to do. I learned this by contacting DAS help chat. The option 1) solved the issue in my case.
