    You can use the following command line which will launch QTrader and automatically enter the username & password. The quotes are necessary to include.

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\CQG\QTrader\Bin\logcln32.exe" -silentlogon -USER="XXXXX,YYYYY"

    where XXXXX is your username and YYYYY is your password.
    For use on a 32 bit operating system, replace Program Files (86) with Program Files.

    This command line can be put into a .bat file and that bat file can be put into the Windows Startup folder. Instructions for doing that here: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000322.htm

    Are you interested in DOM Volumes or Traded Volume?

    If its DOM volume:

    DomBidVol(@,2,Single,1.0_secs)-DomAskVol(@,1,Single,1.0_secs),Sim,20) does not have history.

    Has to use DMTR on a Tflow chart.

    If its traded volume on the bid/offer for each minute

    Then he has to use

    VolAsk(@) and VolBid(@) under the Vol study in the toolbox.

    If using, minute charts the later half of the answer, subminute Tflow and DMTR.
    You may also request direct support by visiting http://www.cqg.com/support/support-request or sending an email to websupt@cqg.com

    Order Display (OrderDis)
    http://help.cqg.com/cqgic/17/#!Documents/orderdisplayorderdis.htm

    The Order Display study is one of several trading studies.

    This study offers an easy technique to compare trading decisions with subsequent market action by marking executed trades on the price chart.

    The study places symbols on a chart for any executed orders and plots horizontal lines for any working orders. The executed trade symbols are placed on the intraday bar the trade occurred during and at the price of the fill.

    The plot for indicating a working order is a horizontal line. The line’s starting point is the time the order was placed. The line displays the size of the working order. The working order can be canceled by right-clicking on the horizontal line and choosing cancel order from the menu.

    Rolling the mouse over the order display symbol on the chart opens a tooltip window detailing the date, time, bought or sold, and size of the filled order. The working order tooltip includes the same information and the type of working order.

    Charts of synthetically traded spreads will display executed trade symbols and working orders on both the chart of the spread and the charts for the outright contracts. Charts of exchange traded spreads will only display the symbols on the chart for the exchange traded spread, not the outright legs.

    If the Drag to Modify parameter is turned on, you are able to modify the working order price from the chart.

    Hi,
    These are Yield figures for each of the futures products. They DO NOT account for the cheapest to deliver bond, therefore most would say yield for those two futures contracts are not accurate. They Yield curve function would be more accurate when using CASH symbols which will reflect an accurate Yield rate. Examples of one source for CASH symbols would be BUS02 (2 year) BUS05 (5 year) BUS10 (10 year) and so on.

    Yield is different than price. There is more information on Bond Yields here for example: http://www.investopedia.com/terms/b/bond-yield.asp

    Regarding the Yield Curve within CQG here:
    http://help.cqg.com/cqgic/17/#!Documents/forwardandyieldcurves.htm

    A Collar option strategy is Long the future, short an out of the money call and long an out of the money put.

    Oct Soy Meal example
    Long ZME 308
    Short 315 call
    Long 305 put

    A three way strategy is long a put spread and short a call

    Oct Soy Meal example
    Long 310 put
    Short 305 put
    Short 315 call

    Trading and investment carry a high level of risk, and CQG, Inc. does not make any recommendations for buying or selling any financial instruments. We offer educational information on ways to use our sophisticated CQG trading tools, but it is up to our customers and other readers to make their own trading and investment decisions or to consult with a registered investment adviser.

    CQG UDS does not support doing option collar strategies as the functionality does not allow a future contract with options.
    To do a 3 way the options would be entered as a Custom strategy in the Option Strategy window as shown below and after pressing the Trade Button and the strategy appears in the DOM window if you have Notifications turned on and click on the Buy side of the DOM the Notification window will appear and show the legs of the strategy and the Buy and Sell of the legs as shown in the below example.

    The opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not reflect the opinions of CQG, Inc. or its affiliates.

    Some of the indicators included in CQG Integrated Client are not included in QTrader, in which case the custom indicator would not work in QTrader. However if the custom indicator is included in QTrader, the study can be used in QTrader.

    There are 2 ways you can create and secure your formula.

    1) Use the "Edit Permissions section in the Formula Builder window and ensure the pac you create is Read Only and passworded.

    2) Use our Charting API, which will not only allow you to create a .dll file that can be imported in other systems, but also give you greater flexibility when designing indicators in C#. More information below.

    1. Any custom indicator that works in QTrader will work in IC. The only way they wouldn't be compatible is if the indicator used third-party studies that were enabled on one system but not the other.

    2. Yes, QTrader does have 1-second charts. The chart type is called the Sub Minute Bar.

    Unfortunately, Qtrader is a trading product and if you don't run a live account you will not be able to see market data.

    Yes you can create a pac and import studies, pages etc into CQGIC from Qtrader. You will want to export specific pages, studies etc rather than 'all settings'. Qtrader has access to *sub-minute bar* charts. More information is provided at: http://help.cqg.com/cqgic/19/#!Documents/subminutebar.htm

    A squeeze is simply a tightening of the bands

    You can add this formula to make a condition when the squeeze exists.

    BDIF(@,Sim,20,2.00)=lolevel(BDIF(@,Sim,20,2.00),20,0)
    pac for use with CQGIC or Qtrader is attached

    In a custom study, if you just use "Close(@)" then the interval will change with the bar interval of the chart on which it is displayed. If you add an interval qualifier, such as the daily "D" as in "Close(@),D" or a 5 minute interval as in "High(@),5" then the charted interval will be overridden with the study interval.
    If you want to access the Daily high 2 days ago in a study for placement on any chart, you can use "Close(@)[-2],D."

    Use set reset to look between dates:
    SetRst(LocalDay(@)=15 and LocalMonth(@)=6 and LocalYear(@)=2017,LocalDay(@)=14 and LocalMonth(@)=8 and LocalYear(@)=2017)

    Pertaining to the second question - we cannot cross reference dates on conditional events and call them up later in a formula.

    For Offsets:
    You can simply use offsets to achieve this.
    (Open(@)[0] - Close(@)[-1]) WHEN (SetRst(LocalDay(@)=15 and LocalMonth(@)=6 and LocalYear(@)=2017,LocalDay(@)=14 and LocalMonth(@)=8 and LocalYear(@)=2017) = 1)

    When applied to a daily chart, the above will return the Open of any daily bar minus the Close of the previous bar.

    In regards to your second question, you can use:

    time:= ((LocalHour(@)*100)+Minute(@));
    time WHEN (MA(@,Sim,12) XABOVE MA(@,Sim,144))

    This will provide the time (900 for 9AM and 2100 for 9PM) when the 2 Moving Averages cross. You can adjust the formula to provide the day when the event occurs by doing the following:

    LocalDay(@) WHEN (MA(@,Sim,12) XABOVE MA(@,Sim,144))

    For sub-minute chart types there is not a standard time anchor, what hiLo1 attempts to do is tell the intra bar history of a minute derived bar. When using time bars - going to a tick database with standard start and end times is straight forward. Going into to the tick data base on a non-time chart presents complexity with an always changing start and end time. The function doesn't work on Renko, CVBs and Range bars because it was programmed before the new exotic chart types were created. It would appear to be an in-depth project to get HiLo1 to work on sub-minute chart types.

    Keep these constraints in mind when you come across other functions that appear not to work on Renko.

    Our Sub-minute bar charts display bars with millisecond precision. They are similar to regular bars except that they are built at the time of the request, as opposed to being pre-built as, for example, 1-minute bars.

    Sub-minute chart data can be displayed as bars, lines, or candlesticks (see display parameters).

    You cannot use this chart type with Signal Evaluator or Market Profile.
