  7. 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.

  9. bracket stop limit

    For example
    the current price is 4000
    the breakout price is 4010
    my stop loss is at 4005
    and my TP is at 4020

    How can i enter the order in one entry only?

  10. Left menu is messy

    Pages get mixed with widgets and icons eat up on screen space.

    • It's better to give easier access to all my pages. They always get hidden and it's hard to differentiate between them. Maybe introduce icons for pages or smth.
    • And I don't need to see all widgets icons. One "add widget" button would be enough.

  12. Cumulative Delta

    Cumulative Delta is an indicator displayed on charts. The value plotted is the volume at offer minus volume at bid for each time period in the day and then cumulating those numbers.

  15. Ability to disable/enable chart compression

    When I place orders way away from the nbbo aka the inside mkt on all intraday timeframes the charts are compressed to display the open orders on the chart. It’s not inconceivable for btc to rip 6-10k and if u have that offer working all ur charts look like flat lines in all timeframes until price nears the offer.

  17. Please remove the daily P&L from the DOM.

    Seeing the P&L is very distracting and can cause bad trades. 50% of trading is psychological, and being forced to see the P&L impacts trading psychology. It would be better if we had the option to not view OR replace the P&L with number of ticks or points.

  18. 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

  19. Please add Exchange traded Futures spread P/L

    At this stage Dekstop does not show live p/l of a Exchange traded spread position?
    Only individual legs live P/L!
    So one has to calculate it manually based on original fill of the spread and the DOM quote of the same spread
    This is is most irritating

  20. Please add lock feature for all indicators

    The drawings need to be locked to prevent accidental changes when we are dragging the mouse cursor. Such example is when using the fibonacci retracement. The 2 points at swing points might change accidentally without we realizing it. This will show the wrong potential reversal area and might affect our trading results.
