Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

yes


Announcements | CQG News

that's the official list then they did say in the forum that they were trying to get a new version of a chart trader to replace Snaptrader in this release, as well as my request for a flatten button on the dom.

The new forex style quoteboard looks interesting

Is there a way I can hide all menus except the Dom for 1 page and use a toggle key to switch pages when I want everything? Reason is 1 page for futures trading where I use Sierra charts and the other pages will be for options etc

Not sure if this answers your question, but you can click on the top left corner of your QTrader to go into "Full Screen" mode as shown here

CQG working out - 1 more quick q

Is there a way i can have no bracket orders which are one cancels the other.. so lets say its report day.. and i know a big move will happen..

a) Can i have 1 bracket order to sell and 1 bracket order to buy . If one of them executes, then the other gets cancelled

So lets say the like today with NG i had that on..

The buy bracket order will execute.. but

b) each bracket order i want with 15 ticks stop and 50 ticks target

Is that possible?

thanks in advance to all

this is what I can think of : you have to place a buy stop with bracket target/stop above current price, and a sell stop with bracket target/stop below current price. You will need to place these 2 orders just before the data release, and depending on which one is filled, you have to manually cancel the other. I do not think the current version offers a way to auto cancel the other.

that said, a word of caution: this strategy may work well in sim, but in live trading you could have both orders filled before you can cancel one of them, and your stop may not get executed. I traded this strategy a few years ago, thinking I have found a gold mine. then the reality always teach you a humbling lesson.

Yes, it's possible. However, if you want to activate them during report release, if I were you I would try it several times in SIM before deploying it live.

The reason is, given the speed at which the market goes post-data release, I don't know whether the systems are able to cancel the 2nd bracket order should the market fill you on the first and then race to the second.

Probably best to ask CQG.

Just seen shzhning's post above. I agree with him/her about the dangers of doing this in a fast market, but I want to point out that you don't need to cancel an order manually, you can set 2 bracket orders as OCO.
