Hi I was wondering if a veteran demon hunter could take a look at my female hunter and give me some tips on how to raise my DPS without loosing my survivability. Right now I can do monster power five and I rarely need to use Gloom except for the toughest of the elite packs. I know my main problem is that I need to get a weapon with an open socket so i can boost my CD more, but I don't want to switch to a Crossbow because I like the attack speed that bows have.

Increasing DPS without lowering eHP will always be expensive. For you, the cheapest upgrade I can think of will be:
1 Pants with higher DEX/VIT and 70+ AR
2 Vile Ward with 200+dex with vit
3 Bloody footprints with higher dex
4 Socket Weapon + 100%cd Gem
Looks like you guys could add Armor and %Life on Strongarm Bracers with no downside (other than cost), and then you could give up armor/life on something else.
I have 21% reduced damage from elites, which I think may be an underrated (and thus underpriced) way to increase EHP. Not sure EHP-vs-non-elites matters.
I haven't done the math but I think 7% reduced from elites could replace a couple Armor or AR slots which you could then use for dex or ias or something.
Make sure your quiver has 19-20% attack speed, that's "free" (in terms of affix slots, not gold).
Quiver can also have %Life in addition to Vitality which may free up a slot elsewhere.
Moving more DPS over to Dex instead of other affixes improves your dodge, which does help EHP in practice though in a "lumpy" unreliable way a lot of people don't like. It's more reliable if you can take a fair number of hits since it then averages out that you'll usually dodge some hits. If you can be one or two shot, dodge sucks a lot more.
