  1. Portara - Dual DST Differences for Funds and CTA's

    Depending on the location of your trading operation(s) Dual-DST differences are a primary headache to intraday data creation for many funds. CQG Datafactory and Portara raw databases are all timestamped in Chicago time REGARDLESS of the exchange in which the data derived from. This is a potential nightmare for Funds residing in the US, for instance who wish their overseas markets to display exchange timestamps. See how Portara resolves these differences for all global exchanges regardless of your funds location. There's more here than meets the eye... Direct

  2. Portara - Where is the best place to Roll A Futures Contract

    I am often asked where the best place is to roll a futures contract even from seasoned traders. There are many variants but in the end it boils down to a date and an underlying reason why. If you don't know the nuances of the various sectors and markets that have developed over the years and why for instance you need to choose long periods in the metals before expiry date compared to only a day or so in the indexes then you face problems. This presentation demonstrates a few very simple methods of how to determine an optimal place;…

  3. Portara - How to Create RTH Daily Data with CQG Datafactory

    Watch this short presentation to discover how to create RTH Daily data from CQG Datafactory INTRADAY database. There is no way to do this with standard daily bars. An intraday database is essential to be able to have dynamic session for Daily OHLC Data.

  4. Portara - Robustness Testing & Strategy Optimisation Using Data

    Traders often try to use their backtester — personal code or software application — to create ways in which to test system models for robustness. However, perhaps there is a much easier solution? Perhaps manipulating the data itself, rather than the code, is a far easier way in which to draw result comparisons. In this simple video you will see the creation of alternative data sets based on:

    1. Increasing and decreasing the volatility across a commodity or portfolio of commodities
    2. Cropping intraday bars from the beginning and end of your daily session
    3. Randomising the opens and closes…

  5. Portara - Discussion on SOB (Start of Bar) versus EOB (End of Bar) intraday txt CSV backtest data

    Some backtesters require data in SOB (Start of Bar) format where others require an EOB (End of Bar) approach. This video contrasts the difference between the two sets of valid timestamp models — for the data importer interfaces that backtesters contain — and researchers inevitable come across. With Portara, you can make backtesting choices for any style of backtester you currently work with — even customized self-designs. Make sure you UNDERSTAND fully the data you are working with.

    The worst case scenario is to purchase data from an unknown supplier only to find 'surprises' later when you reach the data…

  6. What is an Omnibus account and how does it work?

    http://www.cqg.com/Docs/OmnibusTrading.pdf

    Omnibus accounts, set up by clearing firms for non-clearing firms, are used to funnel orders from individual accounts at a non-clearing firm into one omnibus account at the clearing firm. All orders placed for a particular exchange from those individual accounts are sent to the clearing firm and exchange using the omnibus account.

    In this way, customers of the non-clearing firm are not disclosed to the clearing firm.

    Non-clearing firms are able to manage risk separately from the omnibus account and can have multiple
    omnibus accounts with a range of clearing firms.

    A separate omnibus environment is created. The…

  7. How Do I Chart?

    To create a chart, left click on the ‘Chart’ toolbar button in the upper left corner of your CQG screen. A chart appears. In the lower left corner of the chart is a blinking cursor. This is the command line where the symbol and/or the time frame (Intraday and Historical) are entered. You can use the following Intraday time frames: 1 through 60 minutes (1, 10, 30, etc.). You can use the following Historical time frames: Daily (,D), Weekly (,W), Monthly (,M), Quarterly (,Q), and Annually (,A). CQG provides multiple chart types: Bar, Percent Bar, No Gap, Fill Gap, Equalize…

  8. Custom Study Output draws a line from bar to bar

    Hi guys,

    I'm working on making a custom study that draws a line from bar to bar. For instance, from the low of the previous bar to the high of the current bar. Would appreciate any help at all. Thanks in advance!

  9. Group Alerts

    Let's say I create a family of say ten alerts for market EP. Is there an easy way for me to copy this family of alerts and use it for a new market ENQ, without having to manually enter each alert? The copy feature does not allow this.

  10. Is it possible to OCO an order from the spreader to a normal order ?

    I'm working an normal outright order in the exchange traded spread and one in my CQG spreader. I would like to set it, so the first fill cancel the other. Is that possible?
