@Paras. It´s possible to have 2 different brokerage accounts in DAS? (IB + TDameritrade). My other question is if you know COBRA trading. Thanks

trader0 3/9/2023 @ 12:50 pm
@Alfredo Separate DAS apps for TDA, IB $150/mo for each

@Paras thanks for inspiring me to move to DAS-TD and taking my coms away!! I trade the open and actually feel like I get better fills than IB, plus I've had shorts on several occasions where IB has not. So thank you:)

@StephenMeowkmus @Hans I moved from DAS-IB to DAS-TD and am very happy and wish I had done it earlier. At the open, I do find a milli-second delay with DAS-TD, but not significant enough..I am a momentum trader and do quite a bit of scalping at the open..no big complaints. he zero commissions makes it really worth it.

@Hans late to this discussion but there are several studies out that show you et better fills with TD than IB.

@Hans not arrguing against your experience..I myself felt a milli-second delay in fills with DAS-TD (vs IB), but seems the fill price seems to be better with TD per those studies..

@Peter_laptop ...just to clarify, DAS is not DIRECT ACCESS Trading with IB & TD..Only Direct routing. They are Direct access with market only with native brokerrs using their API

Hans Contributor 3/1/2023 @ 3:36 pm
@Peter they were just showing that studies have shown that TD is better fills than IB. nobody was pushing one or the other, I have both

TD customer service is excellent. I was not impressed with IB's customer service.

I don't think I understand how DAS is calculating trades. At the start of the morning I will position into 4 stock, but will has between 6 and 8 tickets.

MomoTrader 3/2/2023 @ 11:30 am
@David76 every transaction is counted as a ticket ..like if you short 500 shares and broker breaks it to two 250 share lots, thats two tickets...

MomoTrader 3/2/2023 @ 11:31 am
@David76 IB was notorious for such splits..and charged commission for every ticket..not seeing that too much with TD

Lori S 3/3/2023 @ 3:18 pm
DAS is $120 and then the data for TDA was going to be another $150 - I thought

trader0 3/3/2023 @ 3:19 pm
@Lori S No I have DAS-TDA - switched from DAS-IB - same cost for both

trader0 3/3/2023 @ 3:18 pm
@Lori S makes sense - DAS is $150 /mo for DAS-TDA and DAS-IB with TotalView, ARCA

Lori S 3/3/2023 @ 3:19 pm
ok so I would have the same cost, just less commissions...

trader0 3/3/2023 @ 3:19 pm
@Lori S yes 🙂

I paid for both DAS-TD and DAS-IBKR for a month and ran some stats...after comms, TDA won out.

Hans Contributor 3/17/2023 @ 11:39 am
I strongly suggest using TD w/Das instead of IB. the fills are good now and the comm's savings is a life saver while you learn

Hans Contributor 3/17/2023 @ 11:47 am
@John I've had both and there is sometimes a slight delay getting filled on TD with das. There are independent tests that show better fills on TD but I don't think they are taking the delay into consideration. Your strategy many times requires very fast fills. Maybe TD isn't the best fit for you. But why not spend $150.00 on a month of Das with TD and see for yourself. If I had started with Das TD, I would have saved thousands in comms

Hans Contributor 3/17/2023 @ 11:53 am
@John_H a couple traders here in chat were insistent that I was wrong about TD Das because independent tests have shown best market order fills with TD. I traded them side by side and sometimes Das Td is delayed, its that simple

TD ameritrade is not available to Canadians but TD investing is

trader0 4/27/2023 @ 1:52 pm
@Jamie @Korey DAS-TD - in my case it took 1 day to get marked as PDT (with number of trades that exceeded the limit) and 2 days to get the 4x margin on day and 2x on overnight - automatically

trader0 4/27/2023 @ 2:02 pm
https://dastrader.com/docs/supported-functions-by-das-ib-and-td-ameritrade/ here it says - ^TD acknowledgement is above a microsecond delay and so some hotkey orders may get rejected. The microsecond delay is not a problem for me even when trading ORBs
