  1. Change background color of charts based on price, time, volume, or economic event

    Having the ability to program the background color of a chart to change based on a market event like price, time, volume, economic news will instantly alert the trader in the most clear and obvious way to the occurrence of the prespecified event.

  3. Volume Delta "Candle" for volume bars on time charts

    Please add a "volume delta "candle"" option to show volume delta as a candle for time based charts. This will allow the trader to see the full range of the how the volume delta bar was formed over the time of the bar instead of just the final amount.

  4. Customize chart window title bar in CQG running on Windows 10

    CQG on Windows 7 (via Control Panel>Personalization>Window Color) allows chart windows in a page to have:

    • customizable title bar size
    • customizable title bar fonts
    • customizable colors.

    It would be great to have this capability for CQG on Windows 10 as well if you plan to stop supporting Windows 7.

  5. Add historical bid and ask trade volume.

    Please add a data point for volume transacted at the best bid and the volume transacted at the best offer. I create custom studies based on these values but they are not useful when the data clears whenever I change page. Even 24-48 hours of data would be much better than currently offered.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  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. Study based on two time scales

    Hi there - I have a study based on two time scales (e.g. 5 minute and daily). How can I access both types of bars ? Are there examples?

  12. 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 >=…

  13. 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…

  14. 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,…

  18. 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:

  20. Can I restore pages that have been lost?

    Yes. Left click on the ‘System’ button at the top of the CQG screen. Click on ‘Auto Backup User Settings’. In the Auto Backup window, click on the ‘Restore from Archive’ tab. A scrollable window is displayed. Click on the date of the most recent file that will have your lost pages and then click on the ‘Restore Now’ button. Be aware that restoring files from an archive will replace your current settings, so you will lose any recent work.
