Hotkeys In ThinkOrSwim


New member
I am a Stock Options trader. Is there a way to Automatically open/close my options orders in the mid-point between bid and ask, using a hotkey/button? This is intended for Options with big spreads. The idea is Not to have to manually define the midpoint but let the system to do it automatically to save time and be more precise. Thanks !

Hello, I am wondering if there is a way to create a hotkey or script to place a buy order 1 cent above the close of the current candle and set the stop loss 1 cent below the low of the candle. For short positions, the script should place a sell order 1 cent below the close of the current candle and set the stop loss 1 cent above the high of the candle. To take profit, the script should use a 2:1 risk-reward ratio based on the size of the candle.

Additionally, I would like to inquire if it is possible to integrate a calculator or label that displays the number of shares to buy based on a fixed dollar risk calculated using the size of the candle. This would be very helpful in managing my position sizing. Thank you.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
