Hi!

I got myself a Stream Deck for Christmas

I so far managed to link some NT8 hotkeys and pictures to the buttons.

I have yet to figure out how to pre-determine the asset class I want to trade through a macro/hotkey.
For the moment this is not yet operational for me, but I am working on binding "custom orders" keys.

If anyone has any experience and tips on good Hotkeys to use, or programs that can compliment my Stream Deck with NT8, please let me know

How is your Stream Deck project going? Were you able to solve the asset class selection problem? How do you protect against accidentally pressing a button and triggering an order? Do you have a modifier button programmed to be held down while you press a buy/sell order buttons? I think this is a great idea especially for scalping.

Hi,

i had bought the stream deck too right then as it was available (My Notes back then). After running it a while and adding function linkage to NT7, i had refused to use it. The target idea is quite good but i wasn't comfortable with the tactile force and the response and had fear regarding unwanted key bounces when pressing. The key response is much related to the point (corner, center of the key) you press. If it is in the corner the whole key is tilted. I had noticed that not every key press was recognised. It's not comparable with a normal keyboard key.

Are you comfortable with the key press behaviour?

Hint: With NinjaTrader Script you can add a shortcut to any of your MenuItems (context menu / third-party AddOns entries also). Then you can add these in your stream deck configuration. I had done this to link my MTPredictor functions to the stream deck.

 
Code
		protected void AddMTPShortCuts()
		{
			ToolStripItemCollection TSItems = ChartControl.ContextMenuStrip.Items;
			foreach (ToolStripItem m in TSItems)
			{			
				if(m is ToolStripMenuItem)
				{
					ToolStripMenuItem MItem = (ToolStripMenuItem) m;
					if (MItem.Text == "Clear All")
					{
						MItem.ShortcutKeys = Keys.F8;
					}
					if (MItem.Text == "Analysis")
					{
						MItem.ShortcutKeys = Keys.F9;
					}
					if (MItem.Text == "Risk Reward")
					{
						MItem.ShortcutKeys = Keys.F10;
					}
					//if (MItem.Text == "EW Intermediate")
					//{
					//	MItem.ShortcutKeys = Keys.F11;
					//}
					if (MItem.Text == "Decision Point")
					{
						MItem.ShortcutKeys = Keys.F11;
					}
					if (MItem.Text == "Execute Trade")
					{
						MItem.ShortcutKeys = Keys.F12;
					}
				}
			}	
		}
Regards,
Koepisch

@dph1,

How is the Stream Deck going? I was looking at that vs the Loupedeck Live.

I also looked at Corsairs iCUE Nexus Commander, but the reviews are horrible on the screen viewing angles among other things.

Last, there is Touch Portal. I am still looking into that one. Basically, you can take an old tablet or phone and then use their software and create your own macros on the touch screen. It has free software that connects the mobile device and your desktop so they communicate with each other.

This video compares Touch Portal and Stream Deck:

that steam deck looks awesome.

I always said that Ninja needs WAY WAY MORE HOTKEYS


Has anyone tried the KeyboardTrader -- execution platform. It is not a trading system per say. It is just an execution and order management system.
