Disclaimer: This third-party trading platform demo is designed as an introduction to the platform and its functionality. It is not intended to mimic trading results in a live trading environment. In an actual live trading environment, commissions and fees would be applied at the close of every business day, and an account statement would be generated. Daily statements and the associated fees are not applied within the demo environment and as such, those fees, which may have a material impact on your account, are not reflected in final profit and loss calculations within this demo. Other factors such as latency fill price and execution times may also differ from live trading results. It is not intended for this demo to be an accurate representation of actual profits or losses that may occur in a live trading environment. These 3rd party platforms generally supply the user with real-time market data, however that can change at any time and without notice.

The Study Dialog: One Step for Adding and Managing Studies

This is a long-awaited feature for CQG Desktop. You can now easily add studies and edit parameters, both mathematical and visual.

  • Click the +Study button from charts to open the study dialog.
  • Configure study parameters to your preferences.

The study dialog has some similarities to CQG Integrated Client. One example is being able to filter the full list of studies via the +Study tab, but with some improvements.

We combined the dialog with the On chart tab, which allows you to manage studies and objects on the chart. You no longer have to search for where to edit parameters or remove studies. This is the one window where you can view everything on your chart to manage, remove, or hide items. To access, click the gear icon in the chart toolbar to open the window; the number after the gear icon shows how many studies are on the chart.

Multiple Studies on Multiple Charts: A more modern workflow

We made managing studies on multiple charts super simple. Click the drop-down icon next to the study name to add a study to all charts on a page.

In addition, a new concept we call 'linked studies' enables you manage the parameters of that linked study across multiple charts. We hope it will save you time.

Park Trades and Activate Orders

With this new feature, you can place parked orders from the Trading widgets and park orders from the Orders widget. Combine the park and activate functionality with GTT duration to get orders in and out of the market hands-free. To do this, you first need to turn on park functionality in preferences:

  • Open the Preferences dialog.
  • Enter "Park" in the search field.
  • Enable park and activate functionality.
