CQG Trader - Options

I was messing around with the site today and I noticed the following... credit is due where credit is deserved... I have to give it to Velocity for listening to their customers, even those that are critical of them (which is not because i dislike them since i am a customer still after all)...

we now can choose more advanced options with CQG, and also, we can get API data!!! which is awesome.. I have to check to see how far history will go back, but this is certainly awesome, and they are the first ones that are doing bundling of that kind..

so my hat off to @Dale Box, @bobk and the rest of the sales team for being creative..

now, why not get CQGIC bundled in like XTrader? that would be the next step of awesomeness... you can even ask for $25K min account, more than what you ask for XTrader (which is $10K)...

Are any of these server side or are they all still client-side?

If not, is there a way to get server side orders for the ATM stops/TP's?

If I recall correctly from the last CQG webinar on futures.io (formerly BMT), all CQG orders are server side. That means they are at the Exchange where possible, and otherwise at the gateway or CQG servers -- and never solely on the client.

Velocity or can confirm, or perhaps CQG's @yshterk.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

This is correct! No serious company would let orders sit locally...

That is pretty awesome, I can run this with MATLAB on a separate machine...

I assume it is just the real-time Data API? Would the cost for historical data be the same as listed on CQG's website? What about the Trading API?

native orders are with the exchange, synths are with CQG... that is my understanding as well.. but CQG is co-located, so it might as well be on the exchange..

that is exactly what I was thinking... which is why I am rushing to test it.. ...I am opening another account to see what it is like... will let you know what I find out as I make the time to play with it.. on details were really on the website, the other option is to get an explanation from the reps on the forum...

FYI: CQG Trader API != CQG API. I'm not sure precisely how they differ, but they are not the same. This may or may not impact those MATLAB plans, depending on what is left out in the CQG Trader API when compared to the CQG API.

Hey all, I only traded w/ NT LIVE for a short while (3 months) over 1.5 years ago, so most of my exp. is with TradeStation and ATC Trader (Open E Cry platform).

So... Just to be clear.

If I have my typical entry and I enter say 1 contract LONG, then my stop and TP will continue onward even if I get disconnected OR shut down my computer?

Just checkin as that is new to me, so sorry if that is a dumb question.

your profile shows AMP/CQG... which is only via NT7... so why not enter an order and let us know how it goes? other than that, with CQGT/IC that is what it means..
