Not sure whether suggestions here are still being read, or if this has already been suggested/implemented but here goes:
1. "Clicktrade" directly on charts.
The ability to configure bindings that will allow you to place trades directly on the chart. So f.ex: SHIFT+ALT modifier + LEFT/RIGHT CLICK MOUSE = sell/buy order(limit/market).
Simply because to me this is faster and more convenient than rightclick, scroll down, clicking(and sometimes missclick) buy/sell.
2. Place an "EXIT" or "FLATTEN" order.
Sure we can do fun stuff with ATM but sometimes life is just easier without them. Those times, it would be nice to be able to have a "Flatten" order pending at certain levels. Why? Because maybe you've placed some buy/sell orders to increase your position if a certain level is hit- but you still would like to exit completely if the whales decide to incur a huge reversal to steals my moneyz.
2.1 See "2"
But replace "EXIT/FLATTEN" with "FULL REVERSE!!"
2.2 "In the rare event of a runner!"
Sometimes i get lucky and find myself in a position i want to let run. However i didnt really expect it to when i placed it without an ATM cashwithdrawel strategy. So how great would it not be if i could add a "trailing stop of X ticks if this level is hit" order in hinesight after the trades already been done?
3. Ability to specify desired increments in the RULER("Y value").
I like the ruler. I drag it from one top to another bottom and look at all the juicy dollars ive coulda made if my crystal ball or magic indicator only had worked as intended. Except they arent shown in dollars, but in the given instruments increment. So CL fairly easy, because 1 "y value" = 1 tick = $10. ES however would show 0.25, and 6E 0.0001 !
Great for math geniuses or people who bother knowing their instrument well enough, but im just here for the fast'n ezpz winz. So an option to define "Y-value" as either CURRENCY or actual TICKS(as in movements, so 2 moves in ES = 2 ticks, not 0.50 points) would be great. Best of both worlds of course would be the ability to configure this to show them all!
4. A magic eightball.
For determining whether you should exit or take the heat and just double down on all those iffy trades that for some reason didnt respect your magic indicator line.
On a side note, where should i be checking for official NT8 updates? As in.. current status and expected release date?
Thanks, i've already checked there, but that only seems like information on the released beta versions - it does not say much about how far they feel they have come and when they realistically expect a stable/safe release.
I was looking at my Dynamic Super Dome in NT7 and it would be great if under The Market a total of the contracts could be added up. So, I can just look and see, if there are more buyers than sellers etc.
I can just look and see if the bulls or the bears are in charge.

You can already do this in both NT7 and NT8 DOM - just enable 'Show Cumulative Depth' in the DOM properties. NT8 can show more levels than NT7 (5lvls) so being able to see 10+ levels is great. It is however bit cumbersome to have the cumulatives show at the top and bottom of the DOM levels- being able to see them right next to eachother would make life easier. Not to mention the option to color the levels according to the volumedepth would be really nice(kinda like the Graph in "Level 2").
The following user says Thank You to danielk for this post:
A really comforting feature were if NT8 could have an optional function to place a stop(close all positions and orders) order at XXticks from the current price IF the connection between client and datafeed would be lost/disconnect.
This way users could substantially limit the dangers of connection losses.
