What a battle today...was behind from the first trade and struggled to eventually hit my target.
Pat on the back.

HSI is incredibly fast, as you know!

You have SC hotkeys set up? I'm strictly a mouse trader but have a programmable keypad that I am looking into setting up so that I can be faster, when I need to be.

Hi Josh, - yes I have 3 hotkeys - cancel all, Buy Mkt, Sell Mkt only(which I rarely use)....problem is in SC you have need a 2 key combination for the hotkeys - which makes me a little bit slower.....given the missed trades recently I now tend to move my left hand over to hover near the correct hotkey combination with my right hand on the mouse for chart trader....in case I cant get my entry....my best trades close out in under 30 seconds. - ie you have to be ready to pounce.

I'm assuming the programmable keypad can then be a single button for trade execution?

Just looking at this below - might be worth setting it up!!! very powerful!!

This is what I have:

But, I haven't set it up yet.. yes, you can do macros / multikey combos. Definitely worth a look for someone like you who uses a keyboard!

Josh - OMG.....so many keys! - I was thinking a basic number pad and use the top or bottom rows only.

Some days just don't work out and you have to limit your losses...today was that day....some amazing signals that did not work out - must obey the market laws of Support & Resistance..
Very lucky to break even over all (but down on 1 lot stats)
