Default ATM Strategy Hotkeys

Hello all,

I there a way to modify the "Breakeven ATM Strategy" within the "Order Entry" window of the "Hot Key Manager"?

Or, and, also......

Can I assign a hotkey to the ATM strategies the I have made?

This would help to speed entries!!!!!! A gaming keyboard and a gaming mouse opens the door to hotkey heaven!!!! Speed and accuracy!!!!

Thanks for looking and hopefully someone had the answer!!!

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately, neither of the options you mentioned are available currently. I will forward the suggestion on to our development staff for further consideration however.

Default AutoHotKey

I don't use strategies, but this free program may help achieve what you want.


It can emulate any key strokes and mouse movements in Windows and NT.

For instance I use Chart Trader to place orders and manage them, well this program emulates the right mouse click and the selection of order type that you get in the box that opens in NT.

So whereever my crosshair/pointer is, with AutoHotKey running, if I hit the 'z' key it will place a sell order ('x' for Buy) at the price level related to the cross hair and only on the chart the cross hair is on (even if it is not the active chart).

This is just one example.
