  1. What is an Omnibus account and how does it work?

    http://www.cqg.com/Docs/OmnibusTrading.pdf

    Omnibus accounts, set up by clearing firms for non-clearing firms, are used to funnel orders from individual accounts at a non-clearing firm into one omnibus account at the clearing firm. All orders placed for a particular exchange from those individual accounts are sent to the clearing firm and exchange using the omnibus account.

    In this way, customers of the non-clearing firm are not disclosed to the clearing firm.

    Non-clearing firms are able to manage risk separately from the omnibus account and can have multiple
    omnibus accounts with a range of clearing firms.

    A separate omnibus environment is created. The…

  2. Multiple Accounts

    Is there a way to arrange(sort) the accounts? I have 50-70 different accounts, is there a way to put 10-15 accounts I want first and sort the rest numerically? Right now they are all listed in a random order.

  6. Conditions for Marking a Bar / Marking Todays Bars

    Hello. I like to mark all bars of the current day (today). I did not find a condition for that. At the moment I solve this task with the LocalDayOfWeek(@) = x formula. But this is not ideal as I need to change the "x" every day.

    Thank You.

  7. Ladder Size

    I think it's version 18x12x8063 that I upgraded to today. Doesn't allow the same smaller size ladders.

    Previous version was 18x10x8032.

    Is there an option somewhere to change to a smaller font?

    Or how do I roll back to previous software version?

  8. Custom Study

    I am creating a custom study. Basically, I want to identify Bar X... where X is marked when Range(@) > MA((Range(@)[-1]),Exp,10); now what I want to do is WHEN the bar range exceeds the range of the prior 10 bars, I want to Draw a line from the 50% line. I know I am drawing today the Open and Close of the Bar X via 2 curves close/open(@)[0] when Range(@) > MA((Range(@)[-1]),Exp,10); ... but again, how do I say @ 50% of that bars price, I want to draw another curve? it is unclear from all your docs...

  9. Vertical Line

    what is the best way to draw a vertical line on price? lets say at a given time... like 8AM CST... and I mean doing so automatically via a custom indicator, not via messing around with my page or instrument sessions.

  10. Preventing impossible trades in backtesting

    I have some strategies that frequently trade on the same bar. Most of these trades are fine, but in back-testing, I have reason to believe that some small number of them are trading in an impossible order. For instance, in a long trade, the price might enter the bar at an intermediate value, fall to the low that meets my sell condition, rise to a high that meets my buy condition, and then exit to the next bar. In back-testing, this would show up as a completed trade, since both my sell and my buy condition are met within the…

  12. Is it possible to OCO an order from the spreader to a normal order ?

    I'm working an normal outright order in the exchange traded spread and one in my CQG spreader. I would like to set it, so the first fill cancel the other. Is that possible?

  14. Price levels/areas from CSV file

    Hello, need help creating a study that gets a list of price levels from a CSV file (or online google sheet file) and plots them on the chart, this way I don't need to do plot all my price lines daily.

    Plotting price areas (between two price levels) would also be a plus.

  15. OCO bracket created on two existing orders

    Let's suppose the trader already placed the two dis-joint orders such as a BUY limit @ 90 and a BUY stop @ 110. Bid/ask is at 99/100.
    Is it possible to join together these two orders into one logic OCO after they are already placed on the DOMTrader as described above?

  16. Limit Order Above or Below the Market

    Hello,
    Would it be possible to code an algo or have the ability to set a limit order at a certain price once that price point is crossed? For example the market is at 2654 currently i would like to have a buy limit at 2654 but only if price hits 2654.25. Is there a way to automate this so i can just have orders sitting in the queue that will turn to limit orders once a line is crossed.
    Thanks.

  17. How Do I Chart?

    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 chart types: Bar, Percent Bar, No Gap, Fill Gap, Equalize…

  19. Chart overlay question

    When I was on another charting platform, I could do this ZF5-/ZN3 and I could get both on the same chart. Can I do something like this on CQG Q trader or CQG Integrated Client? Thanks
