CQG has released CQG QTrader, a charting and execution platform to make its market data, charting, and electronic trading more accessible.
Modeled after the Denver company's flagship product, CQG Integrated Client, the new platform offers real-time data backed by three years of historical market data. This combination allows traders to model customized scenarios and run calculations in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets before making trading decisions.
QTrader was designed for traders who don't need the full suite of tools from Integrated Client. Available charting and analytics tools include bar charts, TFlow bars, line charts, candlestick charts, Bollinger Bands, Moving Average Convergence/Divergence, and Average True Range studies. Traders can monitor the state of multiple conditions and study values for multiple chart types and intervals. CQG's Instrument Monitor makes it possible to view real-time market data and study values and view the status of conditions for an instrument in a single view.
QTrader's order routing tools include: Spreadsheet Trader, a spreadsheet-based trading application that allows traders to track the state of a wide collection of markets using their favorite studies, conditions, and alert; Order Ticket, an integrated depth-of-market and order management interface that minimizes use of screen real estate; and Spread Matrix and Spread Pyramid, trading applications that allow traders to define and monitor synthetic and exchange-traded spreads and trade exchange-traded spreads.
