  1. 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.

  3. 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.

    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:

    EPM7 and select "Create QFormula".

  10. 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.

  11. 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. Candle overlay indicator

    Hello,
    Is there a way to overlay a higher time frame candle onto a lower time frame? MT4 has an indicator called M candles that can do this.
    Thanks.

  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.

  15. Tick chart in candlestick form

    Pretty simple. I'd like to see tick charts in japanese candlestick form. Allow user to choose the tick chart amount (10, 50, 100, 1000, etc) and put it in candlestick form. This provides a better chart during slow market or overnight hours where trading activity is insignificant.

    When using trend lines, it would be easier to have the option of having a button for infinite trend lline, and another one for segment (point A to point B), rahter than just one Trend button which has to be permanently adjusted according to needs.

  19. The Andrew Hecht report is a statement of what has already happened.cqg chart analysis and prediction would be more useful

    produce some charts and use some cqg studies to interpret your expectations for the coming month.
    reporting what has already happened is far too safe and of no use

  20. MTM line

    I could use a feature that allows me to have vertical line or lines appear on the chart at a specific times everyday. For example I'd like a line to appear on the S&P 500 at 11:30 AM and 3:00 AM each day. In this case the lines would appear on the chart everyday at those times historically. Id like to be able to choose different times to make these marks for various markets. Let's call this concept a "Mark to Market line".
