Need Help - Any Coder/ScriptProgarmmer available to customize some DAS Hotkey setting?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I love Kyle's Das Equalizing Hotkey.... I am totally clueless about scripting. I want so badly to set a trigger limit Ask Buy with the equalizing hotkey stops all calculated so that i am waiting for the price to trigger (example during a breakout).

However for the current Kyle's Das Equalizing Hotkey, once you execute the hotkey, the price gets immediately triggered.

I would want to engage anyone who could help for a fee. Really really appreciate. Thank you.

(Btw Kyle if you are reading this...i love your hotkeys so much...am forever grateful )

if you do not want to submit the order right away

the SELL=SEND or BUY=SEND needs to be changed to SELL=LOAD or BUY=LOAD so that the action is just pre-set in your montage and you can submit it from there

if you want to understand the scripts just insert an enter after each ;

then it is much more readable and less confusing and you see what is going on with that script if you need to adapt it

Hi Peter....Thank you so much!

Just one question.

For the ";Price= Ask+0.05"

What would happen if i change it to "Price=Ask" ?

Because if i were to play penny stocks.... a +0.05 could be a huge difference.

Anyway to use +0.1 % instead?

it is the range you accept the price difference. if you put it just at ASK you will enter the position just for that specific price and you will often lose the entry as the price moves rapidly. you are right that for penny stocks it is too much so you would then change it as needed. it is not percentage. it is exact dollar/cent value difference

Hi Peter, thank you again.

Was wondering if i can change it to Market Price? Will there be any issue? Will it not work or will it be too dangeous?

yeah too dangerous especially with penny stocks as it might work 25 times without problem then you get terrible slippage on a squeeze and you will burn yourself hard

for entries always limit orders for stop loss always market orders. you get terrible slippage with that too sometimes but being stopped does not ruin your trade at least

So sorry to bother....am helpless.

I had used the the HOtkey script but the price kept going past my stop loss without being triggered.

I tried to change the ROUTE to LIMIT and also ARCSL but it all doesn't work.

What must i do?

CXL ALLSYMB;StopPrice=Price-0.02;DefShare=BP*0.925;Price=Ask-Price+0.00;SShare=10/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=LIMIT;Price= Ask+0.01;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=200;Price=Ask-StopPrice*5+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS TIF:DAY+

the stop loss is a market order and you most probably tade before market open. Stop Market orders do not work in pre/post market trading hours.

you were perhaps changing routes not market orders

LIMIT is a type of order and also a name of a route at the same time so be aware of that

oh dear ...its pretty confusing for me...I am using Centerpoint on Das...

If this  is the script on the youtube.... what is it not working for me?

 

CXL ALLSYMB;StopPrice=Price-0;DefShare=BP*0.925;Price=Ask-Price+0.00;SShare=10/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;Price=Ask-StopPrice*1+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS TIF:DAY+

 

I cannot be usinf ROUTE=SMRTL as Centerpoint Das doesnt have one.

I normally use ARCSL

As for The stop loss part...which portion of the script does it decides on Route and whether it is Limit or Market order?

the buy entry ends with the BUY=SEND;

from there it is the stop loss order for the range order

sometimes it is easier to go after "i want it to do this" rather than to understand it all and edit yourself. it is all invented so pretty sure some one has already done what you want or if not there is a reason not to do it
