Hello everyone. I have been training in sim and I'm wondering about setting my targets and stop loss. I have been doing my best at the open up until 10am.

Because of the fast movements in price, I'm wondering what the process should be when setting my targets and stop loss. I'm supposed to know this before going in the trade right? Should I be doing a mental math, rough estimate before going in? It seems like that's the only way due to the volatility.

Kyle´s hotkeys do this for you, have you used it? 

I haven't used it yet. It looked so complicated upon reading that I wanted to work on some DAS basics first.

Doesn't the script set a hard stop? I thought it wasn't a good idea to set a hard stop loss. I read that it can be subject to manipulation.

You define if you wanna stop loss or not in that script. Believe me, the last thing you need to worry about stop loss is market manipulation. A stop loss is your safe net to avoid huge losses and keep you in track to become a consistent trader.

The script looks threatening but once you set it up you forget about it, it makes your life easier. Some traders don´t like this script because they don't have control on the # of shares in each entry, but most traders are so happy using it. 

If you want to try a simplified version of Kyle´s hotkeys try the Equalized Equity Risk per Trade, just change the $500 risk for whatever risk you want in each trade.

That hotkey from Das Trader creates a stop loss on a preexisting order correct?

Do you mean the hotkey from Kyle? It is not for a preexisting order. It sets a stop price and an enters you into a trade all in one hotkey.

Can the script be modified to use sim the reason I ask is because I changed the script and added ACCOUNT=TRxxx and it entered a live trade.

Can you share the script you tried? That should prevent you from trading on your live account.

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;ACCOUNT=TRXXXX;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:MARKET PX:StopPrice-0.05 ACT:SELL STOPPRICE:StopPrice QTY:Pos TIF:DAY+;
