Script Based on Fixed Dollar Amount?

Recommended Posts

I've been scouring Google for this one to no avail.  Seems like a simple task, but I'm only a week into studying the DAS scripting language.

Say I want to buy $1000 worth of shares at the Ask+0.05.  Looking for tips on how to build this.

Additionally, is there a way to build this so it fires when a future price level is reached?

Thanks @peterB That script only works during regular hours and I've recently started using it with great success.  What I'm looking for is a hot key method to buy a fixed dollar amount per trade during pre-market hours without anchoring it to a set risk value.  Ran across this today.  Would this buy $2,000 worth of shares?

Route=LIMIT; Price=Ask+0.05; Share=2000/Price; TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send

Also curious if there are functions within DAS that would enable the script to be pre-set and fire at a later price level (stop orders are out ... maybe the native alerts / trigger feature?).

yes your script would work. also a stop limit order for the triggered entry would work with the click to trade method - you click on the chart where you want your entry let the script do the counting and submit the order

Thanks for the confirmation @peterB

The use of the stop limit would disqualify its use during extended hours, yeah?

correct, market and stop orders do not work usually. it is broker dependent though
