  1. 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…

  2. 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,…

  3. Conditions for Marking a Bar / Marking Todays Bars

    Hello. I like to mark all bars of the current day (today). I did not find a condition for that. At the moment I solve this task with the LocalDayOfWeek(@) = x formula. But this is not ideal as I need to change the "x" every day.

    Thank You.

  4. Window titles and divider sizing.

    When switching from windows 7 to windows 10, the width of the window borders becomes too wide and the ability is lost to adjust the title bar font sizing. Please allow for the ability to use slimmer window widths and the ability to adjust the title bar fonts.

  6. OCO bracket created on two existing orders

    Let's suppose the trader already placed the two dis-joint orders such as a BUY limit @ 90 and a BUY stop @ 110. Bid/ask is at 99/100.
    Is it possible to join together these two orders into one logic OCO after they are already placed on the DOMTrader as described above?

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Active order levels displayed on chart

    Is it possible to automatically have working orders' levels (stop, limit) displayed (as horizontal lines) on chart, similar to what's possible in Interactive Brokers?

  11. Chart overlay question

    When I was on another charting platform, I could do this ZF5-/ZN3 and I could get both on the same chart. Can I do something like this on CQG Q trader or CQG Integrated Client? Thanks

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  18. 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,

  19. 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 >=…
