DAS-TDA VS DAS-IB
onlyjava posted a topic in Day Trading Brokerscomments from BBT community: Alfredo 3/9/2023 @ 12:48 pm @Paras. It´s possible to have 2 different brokerage accounts in DAS? (IB + TDameritrade). My other question is if you know COBRA trading. Thanks trader0 3/9/2023 @ 12:50 pm @Alfredo Separate DAS apps for TDA, IB $150/mo for each Bandit 1/24/2023 12:21 pm @Paras thanks for inspiring me to move to DAS-TD and taking my coms away!! I trade the open and actually feel like I get better fills than IB, plus I've had shorts on several occasions where IB has not. So thank you:) MomoTrader 3/1/2023 3:13 pm @StephenMeowkmus @Hans I moved from DAS-IB to DAS-TD and am very happy and wish I had done it earlier. At the open, I do find a milli-second delay with DAS-TD, but not significant enough..I am a momentum trader and do quite a bit of scalping at the open..no big complaints. he zero commissions makes it really worth it. NVDA 3/1/2023 @ 3:22 pm @Hans late to this discussion but there are several studies out that show you et better fills with TD than IB. MomoTrader 3/1/2023 @ 3:33 pm @MasterChief https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=4189239 MomoTrader 3/1/2023 @ 3:34 pm @Hans not arrguing against your experience..I myself felt a milli-second delay in fills with DAS-TD (vs IB), but seems the fill price seems to be better with TD per those studies.. MomoTrader 3/1/2023 @ 3:36 pm @Peter_laptop ...just to clarify, DAS is not DIRECT ACCESS Trading with IB & TD..Only Direct routing. They are Direct access with market only with native brokerrs using their API Hans Contributor 3/1/2023 @ 3:36 pm @Peter they were just showing that studies have shown that TD is better fills than IB. nobody was pushing one or the other, I have both Shelley 3/1/2023 @ 3:37 pm TD customer service is excellent. I was not impressed with IB's customer service. David76 3/2/2023 @ 11:27 am I don't think I understand how DAS is calculating trades. At the start of the morning I will position into 4 stock, but will has between 6 and 8 tickets. MomoTrader 3/2/2023 @ 11:30 am @David76 every transaction is counted as a ticket ..like if you short 500 shares and broker breaks it to two 250 share lots, thats two tickets... MomoTrader 3/2/2023 @ 11:31 am @David76 IB was notorious for such splits..and charged commission for every ticket..not seeing that too much with TD Lori S 3/3/2023 @ 3:18 pm DAS is $120 and then the data for TDA was going to be another $150 - I thought trader0 3/3/2023 @ 3:19 pm @Lori S No I have DAS-TDA - switched from DAS-IB - same cost for both trader0 3/3/2023 @ 3:18 pm @Lori S makes sense - DAS is $150 /mo for DAS-TDA and DAS-IB with TotalView, ARCA Lori S 3/3/2023 @ 3:19 pm ok so I would have the same cost, just less commissions... trader0 3/3/2023 @ 3:19 pm @Lori S yes DarkMoon 3/17/2023 @ 11:45 am I paid for both DAS-TD and DAS-IBKR for a month and ran some stats...after comms, TDA won out. Hans Contributor 3/17/2023 @ 11:39 am I strongly suggest using TD w/Das instead of IB. the fills are good now and the comm's savings is a life saver while you learn Hans Contributor 3/17/2023 @ 11:47 am @John I've had both and there is sometimes a slight delay getting filled on TD with das. There are independent tests that show better fills on TD but I don't think they are taking the delay into consideration. Your strategy many times requires very fast fills. Maybe TD isn't the best fit for you. But why not spend $150.00 on a month of Das with TD and see for yourself. If I had started with Das TD, I would have saved thousands in comms Hans Contributor 3/17/2023 @ 11:53 am @John_H a couple traders here in chat were insistent that I was wrong about TD Das because independent tests have shown best market order fills with TD. I traded them side by side and sometimes Das Td is delayed, its that simple bv 3/17/2023 @ 11:41 am TD ameritrade is not available to Canadians but TD investing is
So I have seen a lot of hotkey setups on here which are very cool. I plan on using one that you can set your risk and it sets 3 range orders, but it requires entering the trade via hotkey and then triggers the range orders. I was wondering how to create a hotkey that creates 4 range orders with the stop of all set as the area i click on the chart and gets loaded into price. I've tried 2 different ways but every time only one order gets sent.. I'll post both ways and if someone could help that would be great. Thanks PS. These are to cover short. Attempt 1: ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Range;LowPrice=AvgCost-0.25 ;HighPrice=price ;Share=Pos*0.25 ;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send; ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Range;LowPrice=AvgCost-0.45 ;HighPrice=price ;Share=Pos*0.25 ;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Range;LowPrice=AvgCost-0.65 ;HighPrice=price ;Share=Pos*0.25 ;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Range;LowPrice=AvgCost-0.75 ;HighPrice=price ;Share=Pos*0.25 ;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send Attempt 2: ROUTE=STOP;StopType=Range;LowPrice=AvgCost-0.25 ;HighPrice=price ;Share=Pos*0.25 ;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send; TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:AvgCost-0.45 HighPrice:Price ACT:BUY QTY:POS*0.25 TIF:DAY+; TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:AvgCost-0.65 HighPrice:Price ACT:BUY QTY:POS*0.25 TIF:DAY+; TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:AvgCost-0.75 HighPrice:Price ACT:BUY QTY:POS*0.25 TIF:DAY+;
Anyone else using the DAS API?
JCurry posted a topic in Day Trading Hardware, Software and ToolsI just started using the DAS CMD API last week and am having some difficulties with it. The sample project that they sent doesn't even seem to work correctly. Specifically, I am trying to subscribe to the level 1 information for a given symbol and it never fires the callback handler. Right after I call socket.eventPool.Subscribe(...) I get a message in the output window stating "The event pool does not contain an entry for Lv1". After that, any calls to socket.SubscribeLevelOne(...) result in nothing happening. Personally, I think it's ridiculous that they want to charge for API access and can't even provide customers with a working sample.
Hot keys for defining capital, Stop loss
kelchi posted a topic in DAS Trader Pro Tips and TricksHi 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!!
DAS - How to remove all Global Trend Lines
Joe K. posted a topic in DAS Trader Pro Tips and TricksSummary: To remove all trend lines, you may delete the GlobalTrendline.dat file from the DASTrader Pro folder I recently ran into an issue with DAS Trader Pro where anytime I went to insert a Global Trend Line an error message popped up stating that I had "exceeded" the number of Global Trend Lines allowed. After attempting to remove the lines myself without success, I contacted DAS Support for further advice. The result, all Global Trend Lines can be deleted by opening up your computer's DASTrader Pro folder (downloaded onto the computer from the initial download) and deleting the GlobalTrendline.dat file. Then, simply relaunch DAS and you'll be able to place new trend lines! Hope this helps someone else! Joe
