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.

@japhro great to hear someone using qtrader

I'm going to start Qtrader for mainly option spreads Cqg is great with customer response but would be great to hear from someone who uses it all the time.

Do you use it to sell spreads?
I have questions like if u open a UDS spread do u have to close/roll as a UDS or can u split the legs?
Does it show margin before u execute?

Thanks

RTD Dashboards

Does anyone have any experience with their RTD dashboards and Qtrader? I like the idea of having a whole market dashboard open without having to leave something like TOS on all the time. Seems like a great feature but not sure if it's a resource hog, etc. ? http://news.cqg.com/workspaces

I've tried a couple and I haven't noticed any performance issues. You may want to give it a try and see what task manager (if you're using Windows) says about it.

RTD is really versatile and if you're good with Excel it can help a lot.

It might be a nice workaround of the chart limitation and a few other custom things like volatility curve etc

Yes I have seen all the dashboards, thanks. I might try building a custom one and see how it goes

Liquidate

Xplorer, that liquidate function you pointed out really sucks for scalping, you right click, go to the drop down, select the liquidate item then a confirmation box appears, then you click that and it liquidates, meanwhile the position has moved 2-3 ticks lol

APpreciate you pointing it out though

Sounds like it's absolutely unsuited for scalping. Try looking up the keyboard shortcuts - you can activate trading by pressing keys (e.g. b for buy, s for sell, etc.) which are customizable. Maybe there's a flatten option you could look up.

I figured out how to turn off that confirmation, but it's still too many steps and awkward. I've never seen a DOM without a flatten button before. Every other thing about it is great though

You can disable the conformation button.
Click on set up button on the DOM when DOM activated--Trading preferences--notification, and disable the conformation.

BTW, the notification button is something that pops up on many platform for beginner traders AND advanced trades to make sure they enter the order correctly. Most know that you can disable these types of orders.

I hope this helps.
