  1. 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.

    Thanks

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Limit Risk Positions

    Allow a user to restrict a contract from being traded. Like an soon to be expiring contract or perhaps near delivery. User could add back permission if desired as well

  5. Estimated Place in queue

    If actual position in queue can be added to CQG Integrated Client, it will very helpful for spread traders to judge the trading decision, as of now the EPIQ remains zero and even after trades happening at price where orders are placed.

  6. data feed broker-independently

    Please offer your data feed also broker-independently, as e.g. IQFeed or Barchart offer it. I use multicharts as analysis platform and need a fast data feed without account.

  7. Seasonal Charts for Spreads and Base Contracts

    It would be nice, and should be a product already if one could look at charts of futures contracts by month and by spread (ie dec-march HRS) on a seasonal bias and searchable by date start time and end time. ProphetX has this and Eikon has this wonderful feature.

  8. Scaling Charts

    When scaling the charts bigger (candle charts for example), also the space between the candles is scaling bigger and is losing lots of space on the chart. It would be great if you could scale the space between the candles independently to save space on the chart. Thanks!

  9. Alert Trade information

    When you set a Trade as an "Action" in the Alerts tool, you can select: Buy, Sell, Liquidate, etc. However, in the display (see screenshot below) it just shows "Trade'. It would be good to have the display show the exact trade action selected e.g. Buy, Sell etc,

  11. How to make spread display half-ticks in DOMTrader

    Entering a spread like APM7-2*EPM7 into a DOMTrader window will show prices in increments of whole numbers (1100, 1101, 1102, 1103, etc). To change this to increments of 0.5 or other value you can do the following:
    1) In the DOMTrader window right-click on the tab at the top where you see APM7-2*EPM7 and select "Create QFormula".
    2) Right click on that tab again and select “Edit QFormula”. This will open the Formula window.
    3) In the formula window, highlight the formula (which should show as SPREAD(APM7-2*EPM7).
    4) Click on "Setup" at the bottom of the window and change the…

  13. Horizontal line which starts at various time points

    To start, you will want to make use of the Hour(@) and Minute(@) functions to get the current time. You will multiply the Hour(@) by 60 and add it to the minute to get the current day's time integer. In a custom study, you will create four parameters for the example you propose, such as "hour1," "minute1," "hour2," and "minute2."

    Then you might code the formula as follows:
    a1:= Hour(@)*60 + Minute(@);
    b1:= hour2 *60 + minute2;
    c1:= hour1*60 + minute1;
    d1:= (Close(@),D)[-1];
    e1:= a1 xabove b1;
    price:= IF(a1 >=b1, g1, f2);
    f1:= a1 xabove c1;
    f2:= IF(a1 >= c1,…

  14. Manipulating dates / Dates as parameters / Dating events

    From the discussion of the parameter values, here: http://news.cqg.com/blogs/coding/2014/04/parameters-inside-cqg-code, I am guessing that the unique date and time specified in parameters are the usual POSIX values most computers use. Is there a way to extract unique date/time values from an event, like a peak or a cross? And can you define a date/time range, and a date/time difference, in a way that lets you use such ranges or difference in a formula or study? I saw the discussion of the TIMER function, here: http://news.cqg.com/blogs/coding/2013/09/timer-helper-and-cqgs-setreset-function
    but I have not been able to figure out how to do similar things for…

  15. Renko bricks

    I have identified several functions, most recently High Low First (HiLo1) , which do not work when trading on Renko bricks. When I say “don’t work” I do not mean that they give the wrong answer, but rather, that they do not give any answer at all. I have sometimes spent a lot of time trying to understand why something isn’t working before finally trying in on candles instead.

    I have not been able to identify any commonalty in these functions , functions that work on candles but not on Renkos. The High Low First function is a good example,…

  20. How do I change the time frame on a chart?

    In the lower left corner of an active chart, you will see a blinking cursor. This is the command line. If you are on an Intraday chart and want to look at a Daily chart, type a comma ( , ) and the letter D (,D). Other entries for Historical timeframes are: Weekly (,W), Monthly (,M), Quarterly (,Q), and Annually (,Y). For Intraday timeframes of 1 minute to 60 minutes, just type the number (1, 10, 15, etc.).

    For more information, reference the help file below:
