  1. Save charting template

    I have a template I use with a ton of studies. Can I save it as a template and call it up to overlay or use on a chart on another page?

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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,

    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:

  9. 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,…
