How do I chart?
edited February 2013
To create a chart, left click on the ‘Chart’ toolbar button in the upper left corner of your CQG screen. A chart appears. In the lower left corner of the chart is a blinking cursor. This is the command line where the symbol and/or the time frame (Intraday and Historical) are entered. You can use the following Intraday time frames: 1 through 60 minutes (1, 10, 30, etc.). You can use the following Historical time frames: Daily (,D), Weekly (,W), Monthly (,M), Quarterly (,Q), and Annually (,A). CQG provides multiple
types: Bar, Percent Bar, No Gap, Fill Gap, Equalize Sessions, Candlestick, Line, Constant Volume Bar, Tick, Point and Figure, Market Profile, Yield, and Spread Bar. For more information on charting, visit the
