CQG platform (CQG Trader/CQG Integrated Client)

I've been meaning to learn more about CQG.

There seem to be two main products of interest, CQG Trader and CQG Integrated Client.

If I have understood correctly, CQG Trader is more or less the Integrated Client minus all charting and indicators. Let me know if I am wrong.

Velocity Futures offers CQG Trader for 'free' (bundle commission), and it's actually about 60 cents cheaper per rt than X-Trader. So I might do a trial to check out the DOM, which from the videos looks interesting, but not as powerful as X-Trader's.

Anyone using CQG? Anyone care to share their research and experiences?

Hi mike,

CQG trader is very good, great if you just want a dom, as you said the integrated client is more of an all in one which i dont like, would prefer to keep the charts seperate from the dom.

Great feature on the dom is right clicking on a price brings up a wagon wheel of order options to select from, so its really easy and fast to choose. Also you can format hot keys for various things which makes everything fast and easy. I have individual sound alerts set for orders entry, all working orders are clearly displayed witht the fastest latancey i have ever seen. Also easy to set OCO's by clicking the magnet on the orders which will link them together.

You can get a demo from their site, def worth a try.

hth.

I'm sure I'll check the demo eventually. For now maybe you can answer:
  • Trailing Stop/ATM's?
  • Bracketing?
  • Static ladder?

Have you used X-Trader before? If so, how do you feel CQG stacks up regarding the DOM? I'm only interested in the DOM, since I'm using MultiCharts for charting.

The day I wanted to learn more about daytrading was the day I learned about CQG.

When I learned more stuff and talked to many retail traders they said : Forget CQG, it's way to expensive and you don't need all that stuff.

I always looked at CQG and knew deep inside it's what the pro's and big retails use, maybe with a reason. Looking forward to see what the results of the experiences are.

Mike,

There are various stop types possible and i have not used or really explored them but yes there are trailing stops available in the trader version. If you want out the box brackets and ATM then you would need the integrated client version. I used brackets exclusivly before but now use OCO's that i set once the orders are in as its a simple 2 click operation on the magnets to link them.

The ladder has options to alter it between either mode, plus graphic depth of order book, you can switch which side you want buy/sell to be on and you can change the colours as you wish. It also auto prints a line on open high low of the day on the ladder.

You can also set hot keys for size and various entrys and stops.

I have used x trader although only on demo as i found it was very good but also very complex, a little too complex for me.

anything else just ask, can do screenshots next week.

Thanks for the details, and I look forward to the screen shots.

So based on what you've said, the DOM in the Integrated Client is more feature rich than the DOM in Trader? (ATM's/bracket)

There is a huge amount of top-level resources on CQG's features here:

If you dig through the site all user manuals, documentation, code samples, etc are there without having to log in... even the API docs.

Thanks for the link, I hadn't discovered it yet on my own.

Have you used CQG? Any thoughts?

I'm attaching a few PDF's I found and will read through more closely later.

I tried their platform, and didn't like it very much. I specially didn't like the fact that it was java based, thats what the broker told me.
