  2. How to make spread display half-ticks in DOMTrader

    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:
    1) In the DOMTrader window right-click on the tab at the top where you see APM7-2
    EPM7 and select "Create QFormula".
    2) Right click on that tab again and select “Edit QFormula”. This will open the Formula window.
    3) In the formula window, highlight the formula (which should show as SPREAD(APM7-2*EPM7).
    4) Click on "Setup" at the bottom of the window and…

  3. 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?

  4. 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…

  5. 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,…

  7. 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;…

    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.

  9. 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 of the daily…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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?

  16. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
