Hi @ redratsal

Is there a function in AutoHotKey where you can pause the script rather than close it?

I noticed if you right click on the 'H' icon in the Sys tray it has option to pause script, so I wondered if something like:

p::
pauseapp

Would pause script rather than exit it?

Thanks

Hi Steve,


#p::Pause ; Pressing Win+P once will pause the script. Pressing it again will unpause

Hello @ redratsal

Where did you find the shortcut abbreviations for NT that told you 's' and 'b' when used with right mouse click would place sell and buy orders.

I mean the use of 's' and 'b' for sell and buy is logical, but how did you know this shortcut even existed - and are there other similar shortcuts ie is there some listing within the NT help files (I am not referring to the Hot Key Manager)?

Thanks

Hi Steve,

It's rather a window shortcut, just right click and push the corresponding letter of the list (if there are 2 items with same letters push 2 times and so on)

if you want to refer me you'll have to write it like this @steve2222

Have a nice Easter Day

AutoHotKey is designed to stay running, you should not need to run the script more then once, and you should not need to run a different script for different hotkeys. I start my autohotkey script in the morning after I boot my machine, and it stays running until I turn off the machine at night.

Here is my entire autohotkey script, containing all my hot keys for NT, and for other apps, using normal keyboard keys, extended keyboard keys, mouse wheel, and extended mouse buttons for my 5 button mouse.

Could you simulate a right-click of the mouse on a chart to put an order where your cursor is with this hotkey application ?

Yes. You can move your cross hair to the price you want on the chart and hit 'Ctrl-b' to buy or 'Ctrl-s' to sell with the following script commands:

^b::
Send {Click Up Right }{b}{Enter}
return

^s::
Send {Click Up Right }{s}{Enter}
return

Hi there, I saw your message and had a question. I know you programmed the Z as a sell limit...is the same as a middle mouse button action or is that a sell stop. I want to use your script however i`m not really good at understanding scripts etc. What i`m looking for is one button for a buy stop and one for sell stop. The way I want to use this is for example i want to go for a buy, i want to be able to click the letter X and then it would take me into the trade at the current price or one tick above. Similiarly, I would like to click the letter Z (sell stop) when taking a sell and entering the trade at the current running price or one tick below. I`ve tried asking this question to many people but have not been successful with a solution. If you could help that would be greatly appreciated!

thank you,
rbxx

Find attached the script with autohotkey:

z=sell limit
x=buy stop

I chose z and x they're easy to reach, if you want to change them just edit the file and replace z and x with other keys.
If you want the exe file without installing autohotkey just pm me. To disactivate the keys you will have to exit the application.

Those functions are not customizable with the Hot Key Manager, what you can do is use your keyboard:

Sell Limit= right click s + enter
Buy Stop= right click b + enter
Buy Stop Limit= right click ss + enter

It's not one button it's 2 but once you get confident it's faster

Hi redratsal,
Do you have a script that I could use for the buy stop you mentioned above? Would you have one for a sell stop as well? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Rbxx

Hi Monpere,

I clicked on the link above but it seems that I'm not a elite member. Would you have a hotkey on the keyboard for a buy stop market order and a sell stop market order? I'm not looking for a limit order as I want to go straight into the trade at the current running price or one tick above if it's a buy or one tick below if its a sell. Any help would be much appreciated!

It should be pretty easy to create hotkeys to do "Buy Ask" and "Sell Bid". Would these work fro you?

A buy ask or a sell Bid would work as long as they are a buy stop market or sell stop market order. Usually a buy ask or sell bid relates to a limit order?
