Folks, I am new to this forum so forgive me if I don't follow some rule. I will also be open and will disclose that I work for CQG. I am more on a technical side of the company and will try to answer whatever question you may have about CQG products and technologies.
To answer some questions that were asked earlier in this thread - CQGTrader is NOT a Java platform, it is C# application with most of the real time critical pieces (DOMTrader, etc.) written in C++.
There is a difference between CQG Integrated Client and CQGTrader - CQGTrader has order routing capabilities of Integrated Client but it is usually 1 version behind. Next version of CQGTrader will provide bracket orders as well as other enhancements that were made available in Integrated Client in the recent past.
CQG offers Eurex for simulation but you have to pay for the market data. If you are willing to do that (Eurex's requirement) - ask your FCM and they will add Eurex to your sim or demo account.
If anyone has any other question - jump in, I'll be glad to get you an answer.
The following 4 users say Thank You to yshterk for this post:
I have a few questions:
1) You keep referring to CQG Lite, is that CQG Commercial? my understanding that the "lite" version is available in Asia only.
2) Can you please tell us about the integration between CQG and ProphetX for charting? Is there a fixed package cost for Eurex and/or CME?
I appreciate your time as I want to inform my clients.

Again, each broker has a way to call CQG packages the way they want, so I cant comment on what is included into each package here. There is a version of CQG that is being sold in Asia called CQG Lite and it is limited to the Asian customers only. That package includes charting and trading. There are other CQG lite packages that are floating around as well in other parts of the world.
On the second question - there is a version of ProphetX with trading interface that is powered by CQG that is currently in the final stage of qualification. I am not sure on the pricing of it (question to ProphetX people), for trading it will have access to all exchanges where CQG has access to.
