  1. Allow for multiple targets and stops on OCO Bracket Orders

    Currently bracket orders only allow for one target and one stop. Allowing for multiple targets, up to 4 independent targets would be a big help as well as allowing up to 4 independent stop points.

  2. Trade Statistics

    CQG should include a module for monitoring trade statistics. This could be included as part of the orders and positions window or separate.

    This should be like (at least) a simplified version of EdgeWonk(https://edgewonk.com/) and include the ability to filter timeframe and view various common trading metrics.

    Should include the ability to compare last 30 days to previous 30 days or other periods etc and the ability to compare % return to a product such as EP as a benchmark.

  3. SMS notifications

    There should be a way to get SMS notification (Texts on phone) on fills and maybe other things like incomplete fills, and problems with connections. This is great for when you are not in front of your screen, but working orders. Many other trading platforms offer this.

  6. 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.

  7. A moving/sliding Bracket Order/Trendline

    Hello!

    I just wanted to suggest an order type that would be HUGELY beneficial to traders. A moving/sliding Bracket Order. In other words, if I want to get short with a Bracket Order stop below a moving trendline...lets day it comes in at 5550, and I want to get short 10 tics below at 5540, and risk 10 tics back above at 5560, and I want my target to be 60 tics below wherever the trendline comes in. This all works great if the Trendline does not move. But what if it moves upward 3 tics per/hour? Then the following…

  9. Please add order passing functionality where one trader can pass orders to another trader and the trader ID (Tag50) would be updated.

    Order desks need ability to pass orders to the next shift and they need to see who was the originator of the order and who is the current user for the order.

  10. Option to display multiple ticks on a single level in DOMTrader

    When markets move fast and a product has a small tick size it is impossible to keep up with the price action in the DOMTrader. For example, if I were to trade the RBOB Gasoline futures it is nearly impossible to keep up with even small moves. The DOMTrader should have the option to display more than one tick per level.

    So for the RBOB example, with one tick per level the prices displayed might be 1.1798, 1.1799, 1.1800, 1.1801 and 1.1802. If the ticks per level were set to 5 those prices would be 1.1790, 1.1795, 1.1800, 1.1805 and…

  11. Building and testing complex Trading systems

    CQG should offer a course on building complex trading systems, then record it for general use by customers. Experienced traders would benefit from this 'CQG Trading System Academy' and grappling with the maze of different ways to assess an idea. Traders have plenty of ideas, but enabling them with a structured step-by-step process would refine their knowledge. Not an easy topic as there are multiple approaches, hence the need to embark on a system building journey.

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

    Entering a spread like APM7-2EPM7 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…

  13. 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…

  14. Import QFormulas from .csv file

    As I'm sure many other users, I use excel to organize parameters for QFormulas. When time to update the QFormulas in Formula Builder (at least daily), I concatenate formulas within excel then copy/paste them into the Formula Builder to maximize speed/accuracy. It would be nice to be able to export these QFormulas in excel to a csv file, then import them into Formula Builder for greater efficiency.

  18. 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

  19. 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?
