Chaging limit price quickly

    I would like to be able to adjust my limit price in a more efficient way. Right now, I can click on a price on a level 2 box, or go to the limit price box and highlight the currnet price in there and manually change it. The problem with mouse clicking is that sometimes by the time I get my mouse to the right price, the price has changed. And it is too time consuming to manually change the price. I also find the 'increase price' or 'decrease price' hotkeys to be inefficient.

    I'm wondering if something like an xkeys keyboard will allow you to change the price just by clicking numbers. For example, you would have a 10-key numberpad, and those keys do nothing but change the limit price. So you press '20', and the limit price box is automatically changed to 20.00.
