CMEG TIF is WRONG
StephenMeowkmus posted a topic in Day Trading BrokersI 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.
Jonathan Price posted a topic in Day TradingHey 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
Kyle's Hot Key for SSR
Tony Ciaramitaro posted a topic in DAS Trader Pro Tips and TricksHello 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
Click Chart Price Limit Order Hotkey
Phil posted a topic in Day Trading Hardware, Software and ToolsHi 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
