Yes it might be possible to add a bluetooth dongle on the end of the StreamDecks USB cable but this kind of eliminates the point that the cable is the annoying thing! It is a fixed length which is either too long or too short and you can only make it longer with a USB extension. Perhaps it could be coiled up and a dongle added and it could then be hidden behind the StreamDeck when it is on its stand but you would still see the wire sticking out of the top of StreamDeck. Better than no bluetooth connection I guess though.04/08/2020 at 8:13 PM #125327
I love using my streamdeck XL. I haven’t yet used it much with PRT11 as I’m still on 10.4 but can’t wait to use it for actual trading. At the moment I use it for differnt tasks. I have my favourite forum posts that I follow linked to buttons so I can quickly just click on those in the morning and get straight to the right post. Also, I’m using aText app on my computer that links to buttons on the streamdeck – this way I can have snippets of code and premade strategy templates put into place in Proorder with a click of a button.04/08/2020 at 8:21 PM #125330

Yes there are many uses other than trading that the StreamDeck can be used for. My favourites so far are as a video and sound controller. I watch a lot of video on my laptop but the distance I like to view it at makes using the mouse difficult and the keyboard is out of reach. Having the StreamDeck next to me so I can pause/play/up volume/down volume/mute is great. My other favourite use is like you – I have my most used websites at the press of a button. This is especially useful after crawling out of bed bleary eyed and desperate for coffee. I just press all the buttons of the websites I want to read while drinking coffee as I breeze past the computer on the way to the coffee pot. By the time I have returned they are all there ready to read.04/08/2020 at 9:21 PM #125334
Indeed! Normally we only have 2 types of computer input, but adding a 3rd one makes it more efficient and enjoyable to use the computer. I also use it for scanning and launching actions in photoshop (slightly off topic on this forum..) It makes it more intuitive to use the computer with less clicking and typing for repetitive tasks. I’m sure there are loads of other use cases that I haven’t discovered yet.
@Vonasi – you didn’t get it to be used for manual trading? I think I read somewhere that you do auto trading only, but I might be wrong.04/08/2020 at 9:47 PM #125335

I have to confess that it was an unexpected gift from the good people at PRT but that in no way influences my opinion that it is a very useful bit of kit!
You are correct I don’t like manual trading but I have also not auto traded either for some time now due to these crazy times that we find ourselves in. Plus making money was never my primary incentive. I enjoy the challenge of coding indicators and strategies as much as I enjoy winning spread bets. I won’t starve if I don’t trade and I think that anyone who trades because they want to use it as a way to put food on the table is going about it all wrong. Food on table first then spread bet what you don’t need for food after everyone in the family has eaten!06/30/2020 at 4:16 PM #13776409/24/2020 at 8:43 PM #145276
