PANIC HOTKEY FOR OPTIONS

Recommended Posts

I am new to DAS and Hotkeys and needed to confirm that the PANIC button to close down all open positions for an option trade was Shift + Esc. Although I knew that the PANIC key was a default Hotkey, I needed to find out if anything else needed to be configured specifically for options trading?
 
I found this Configuration window in the pic from "Setup + Other Configuration" which shows a "Panic Route" button, an "Options Panic Route" button and a small "Options Panic Enabled" button in the top left of the pic. Would you please let me know what to type in for these buttons for options trading. Do I actually need these buttons if it is a default Hotkey?
 
Thanks, Team634258056_DASTRADEROPTIONSHOTKEYPANICSETTINGS_2.JPG.5d6c1c580fb801bbb5bdfdcd74f09a5e.JPG

It is called a stop loss 🙂 Just a joke. I am also searching for hotkeys to buy and sell options. I am not sure if it exists in Das Trader. It is a bit limited in options trading so I am wondering if anyone can help.

Thanks.

if you double click on the contract your looking to buy and sell that will bring up the chart for the option your interested in and also load it into the main montage. From there you can use the same hot keys you use  for stocks to buy and sell the contract (buy on the ask + 5 cents, sell on the bid -5 cents etc). I've put in a request with Das to add hot buttons directly to the options chain the same way you can the montage but who knows if and when that will be released. if you want to keep things simple though you can just single click on the option contract your interested in trading and use the default "buy to open" sell to close" buttons on the option chain with market orders if your just looking to day trade calls and puts. i use the smrtm route with IB for this and havent had any issues so far getting in and out near the last price. I do stick to highly liquid options like $SPY and $TSLA though. wouldn't recommend using that approach with a random stock in play.
