CQG M Unofficial Wishlist

edited February 2014 in CQG Desktop
I'm starting thread for people to comment and post what they'd like to see in CQG M.


  • I'd like to be able to set up a quoteboard with a set of symbols and share it with my co-workers easily.
  • To be able to sort the accounts numerically or alphabetically. 
    1. Bracket orders
    2. Price alerts
    3. Charts
    I believe #s 2 and 3 were mentioned as being in the works on a webinar I saw about CQG M. Not sure if bracket orders are on the roadmap or not. Thanks much
  • Recent "wishlist" items added to CQG M:

    These features are now available on demo and production in CQG M version 2.7:

    • The trading from charts feature lets you show trading buttons, select a price, and execute a trade from the chart using the same trading buttons from Hybrid Order Ticket (HOT) (desktop, coming soon to mobile).
    • Order Study on charts shows working orders on the chart. It has been a popular tool available in CQG’s flagship product, CQG Integrated Client (mobile and desktop).
    • Options days to expiration displays important expiration information directly on the screen (desktop).
    • Added OCO orders, available in HOT, let you place target exit and stop loss orders (mobile and desktop).
    • The go flat feature, available in HOT, allows you to cancel working orders and liquidate positions for a particular symbol (coming soon). From the global menu, you can cancel working orders and liquidate positions for all symbols for a single account (mobile and desktop).
    • Improved widget linking adds the ability to start linking from the Add Symbol dialog (desktop).

    • Updated styles: We've refined the look and feel of CQG M. Our design philosophy is that user interface elements (buttons, tabs, etc.) should fade to the background and the market content should have the highest contrast and stand out the most.

  • Hi Marcus,

    Are we going to have an audible alert for markets trading at certain price levels any time soon?
  • Hi Martin, yes, we are trying to get them soon. Hopefully Q1 of this coming year.
  • Bracket orders needed. Traders want less potential fumbling during fast market conditions...bracket orders help with this. This will make traders trade more often, thus creating more revenue for CQG. Not sure why this feature would warrant such a delay in development
  • Hi, Bracket orders and other smart orders are slated for release in late Spring of 2018. We will send out an email once these features are ready for release.
