  4. close trade button

    Add a quick button for close trade and canceling OCOs-- if I'm short and have resting stop/target and need to close trade quickly with the buy/sell button it leaves my working orders. This causes problems in volatile markets. The way the "flat" button is coded now is worthless for getting out of a market fast. Need a quick close and cancel button.

  5. In addition to the Buy/Sell buttons, TDAmeritrade has a "Reverse" button.

    I'm a day trader and I need a quicker way to reverse my position. The market could change direction 3 or 4 times within a minute.

  6. quick change to custom bracket

    allow for +/- or enter number right off the screen to modify the TP/SL without actually going into the bracket settings window for more efficiency.

  9. Add a Second Logout Confirmation .

    These working orders I forgot to cancel for sell and stop. It is killing me.

    I think it will be a better idea to add something like “Are you sure you want to log out? There is still working orders”. This message only pops up only when you have working orders.

    I lost about $500 thinking I close everything which I didn’t.

  10. remove confirmations when using One-Click order entry

    Under the preferences, we are able to turn on "one-click". However, the confirmation is still enabled. which makes it a two click process.

    This is also true when canceling the order.

    Please remove the confirmation to make this a true one click function

  14. Break-even order modification

    Please consider adding BE or break-even orders (move our stop-loss to our opening price) after a set number of ticks moves in your favor. Obviously this can be done manually but it would be nice to have it automated before the trade was placed or instantly adjusted with one-click after the position was opened.

  17. Integrate spreader functionality

    Integrate spreader functionality where you can atleast place/modify/view formula order. This will allow to monitor or view pricing on spreader formula/orders and place/modify orders that were created in cqg IC. No need to implement formula builder yet but simple order/pricing integration for out of office/mobile use.

  19. Enable multiple targets for bracket orders

    Example: place a 2-lot bracket order via HOT. One target is n ticks, other target is 2n ticks.
