  1. Better QuickTrade Panel

    The QuickTrade panel already has:
    - lotsize parameter
    - SELL button
    - BUY button
    - SELL LIMIT button
    - BUY LIMIT button

    Please add:
    - Take Profit Offset (parameter + checkbox)
    - Stop Loss Offset (parameter + checkbox)
    - SELL STOP button
    - BUY STOP button
    - CLOSE button (close all)

    We need all of this in one convenient place to do efficient scalping.

    Please vote my idea so cTrader can be the best scalping platform :)

    • New Desktop layout - Symbol Layout

      Get rid of the new Symbol panel in the new desktop layout mode. This is rather pointless as opposed to how it used to be. Its simply the info sheet added to the symbol clicked on. I dont need this. I preferred having quick access in my watchlist to many symbols open and the bid and offer quote panel. Now I have pointless information added to which I dont need. And if you disable it, it doesnt show ANYTHING.. At least allow traders to switch it back to how it was!!!!

        • Enable "offline" Backtesting

          In order to be able to backtest cBots while not being connected to the internet and/or the Sportware Server the abillity to backtest "offline" would be highly appreciated.
          Like a local "offline" Backtesting Account with the option to define initial funds.

          • next chart and previous chart button/shortcut

            Just a simple function to select next/previous chart on tab will help tremendously especially doing multiple timeframe analysis.

              • CTrader for Mac info. Please read!

                A few months ago, i had a company called CodeWeavers contact Spotware on my behalf. CodeWeavers is a porting company. They were willing to port CTrader for Mac at a reasonable price. They got in touch with Spotware on multiple occasions and Spotware responded saying that they'd discuss this with their lead management. Months passed and Spotware did not do anything, meaning that they simply refused to allow their software to be ported. This is beyond ridiculous! If you guys don't want to help us, the Mac users, then at least please allow us to use custom indicators on the…

                • need a risk reward graph and calculator combined similiar to trading view.

                  Risk reward calculator in trading view is Ideal. It displays a coloured area representing risk and a different coloured area represent reward.
                  Nice.

                  • Autosynchronization of chart drawings between desktop and mobile app

                    There should be auto synchronization between desktop application and mobile application for charts objects..

                    For example,

                    On desktop app, I draw a trendline and fibonnaci extension.

                    Then I close desktop app, and open ctrader in mobile, then there should be same trendline and replacement levels i should able to see in my mobile app by using "auto synchronization" facility...

                    And same way if i add objects in mobile app, it should get synchronize automatically with desktop app.

                    This will be very useful function, and truly, we can use desktop and mobile app efficiently, as most of people like me, dnt…

                    • Trailing stop loss "activate when gaining" and "Trail for" settings

                      The previous version of CTrader had a real nice feature where you could set WHEN you want the trailing stop loss to activate but also how much to Trail by.

                      This feature was removed and replaced with different feature which in my opinion is not as versatile as the old "activate when gaining" and "Trail for" settings.

                      I want "activate when gaining" and "Trail for" settings back on Ctrader please.

                      • Light layout theme

                        The light (white) theme on looks like dead grey colours. It would be better if the user has an option to change these colours too.

                            • cAlgo User input parameters dividers

                              If your cBot instance as many user input parameters then the panel can become very messy real quickly. I'd like a way to add a simple divider, like the how the default instances symbol and timeframe input are grouped together and also add a group title above it again just like how the default instances symbol and timeframe input group has one.

                              I've uploaded a mock design of what I mean here https://ctdn.com/forum/suggestions/11555

                              • symbols tree

                                symbol tree instruments- classified, organized by instruments or categories; so different chart are easy to search and displayed. I found that when you have several charts instrument opened, searching for one you aere looking can be much easy friendly than now, scrolling with arrow till the one appears

                                      • Fixed Trailing Stop

                                        Please add the function for a fixed trailing stop.

                                        Example :
                                        1. Trade opened with SL at -100 Pips , fixed Trailing stop set at 300
                                        2. Price moves 300 pips from entry , SL moves 300 Pips (200 Pips profit locked in)
                                        3. Price moves another 300 Pips , SL moves another 300 Pips (500 Pips locked in)

                                        and so on.

                                        • Secure the Close All button

                                          The Close All button is placed where it is very risky for accidentally clicking it.

                                          Secure the Close All button with a password requirement.

                                            If you disable Quicktrade settings you also disable the “Close All” button. Based on this we don’t feel there is any need to protect the button further. This suggestion will be kept open for now.
