Is it possible to set up a DAS hot key to go directly to a url

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to set up a DAS hot key to go directly to the url with a stock symbol as a place holder (coming from montage)

 

In other words for example, I want to press hot ` which brings up the finviz.com website. But instead of

 

https://finviz.com

 

I want it to look at the montage and use the selected stock symbol (ex: VTVT). For example when I press the DAS hotkey `, I want it to go to the following URL:

https://finviz.com/quote.ashx?t=VTVT

 

Then I can use the Stream Deck to link it to the key press `. This way it's a lot smarter (save a lot of keystroke).

 

Thanks,

 

Michael

Michael, I don't think it is possible to pass a parameter (like stock symbol) into a DAS command hotkey. Wouldn't hurt to ask them directly though support@dastrader.com.

Thanks for the quick response Robert. I just emailed DAS support as suggested. I will share the response once I hear back from them.

Wow that is incredible! I noticed it only works with the Montage selected. Chart and watch list don't work.

I supposed it's kind of like using the hotkeys for long or short. It needs the montage selected. For me this is useful since I have a montage button and a finviz button on the stream deck also. The montage button allows me to traverse through the montages screens (similar function as the keyboard End key) or I can also use the mouse (which ever I can touch first).

 

My setup is just a simple. Beside the stream deck, I am using a 34 inches wide monitor to view 3 stocks (set of 1 min and 5 min charts). Going to practice and try to master 2 strategies for now (Support and Resistance, VWap).

 

Thanks,

 

Michael

This is awesome. I've added this as an icon and a hotkey on my StreamDeck home screen.

Thanks! I had that script correct, but didn't realize you needed to have the montage selected  and not the chart/market viewer.

As a tip, they added a FocusWindow hotkey in version .33. If you give the montage (right click title -> config -> name) a title, you can then set focus before executing the webpage hotkey.

Example: Montage window title: MyMontageA

FocusWindow MyMontageA; https://finviz.com/quote.ashx?t=%SYMB%

 

Downside is that it'll always use that montage for the SYMB value.

A huge thank you for posting on this. I use the Finviz hotkey dozens of times a day and half the time have had to type the symbol manually because of a dead page. This is really helpful!

This is the hotkey command:

You have to select the montage for pressing the hotkey.
