  3. 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. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  11. 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.

  14. on the DOM ladder, can you total up both sides of orders placed? Some fast moving markets are impossible to keep up with in my head

    On the DOM ladder, can you add up the total orders placed for both buy and sell? Some markets like gold move so fast there's no way to get a feel for this in my head. It should be a simple spreadsheet type calculation that takes minimal resources?

  15. On the hand held CQG platform please could we enter a limit order as we can do with the main platform do with Snap Trader 2?

    on the hand held CQG platform please would you enable it so we can enter limit orders as we can on the main platform when putting in a horizontal trend line? otherwise I have to use the ladder which takes more time or keep tapping the price on the HOT.
    Many thanks
    David

  16. 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.

    Allow stop losses at specific price levels to allow for easy technical stops without needing to count ticks.

  20. Options Chain Position Indicator

    Hello, when trading options would be helpful to indicate the active positions/strikes in the options chain making it easy to quickly scroll and locate the position/strike in the options chain. Thank you.
