thanks @jokertrader for the tip, however I can't seem to get it to work.

I start my QTrader, log in, then I start the Algo Order app, it just sits in the tray for a few seconds and then disappears.

What QTrader version do you use?

What about you @bathrobe?

The latest one, but you need to start Q Trader, then hit the "logon" button in the upper left hand corner, then the scaling bracket will work. So after you have signed in you then hit logon on the platform, you will see it. Don't enter anything in the boxes, it will logon for you.

Thanks, I do logon in QTrader.

Are you supposed to operate this Algo thing within QTrader or is it all done via the app tray?


Documentation is non-existent for this thing, in the best CQG tradition

ok, It didn't work for me until I clicked that button that is why I said it.

The following is how I get it to run, I start Q Trader, then logon within the platform. Then click on "Scaling Bracket" in the start menu and a message comes up saying I can now use it. It shows up in the system tray.

Okay, thanks again @bathrobe.

It's late in the day for me and markets are closed anyway. I will try again tomorrow. This looks promising, I hope to get it to work.

Scaling bracket.. it runs in the icon tray

you can right click on the icon and configure it and save/restart.. but still not sure how to have multiple profiles.. i think doable

then its available in the DOM as a dropdown.. like OCO, bracket and then this SB - scaling bracket

Stability and reliability

@bathrobe: Have you been using this for a while now? and hows the stability?

One more thing: can you have multiple profiles and switch profiles without having to restart the application?

My live trading still uses X_Trader, I got another demo of Q Trader this morning oddly enough and installed this plug in first thing as I told you multiple scales was my main concern about the platform, so I cant speak to stability but CQG is very stable so I imagine it is very good.

Within Q Trader there is an option to have bracket orders have different pre set targets and stop losses and also different quantities, perhaps this is what the profiles are (enter 2 scaling 1 and 1 or enter 4 scaling out 2 then 1, and 1), I will look into more tomorrow.
