  1. 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…

    • 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.

        • 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…

            • Free Scale Charting ( Meaning no lock on the charting scale.)

              The charting system is really horrible for a technical trader.
              It's super difficult to do proper technical analysis with the locked chart scale and zoom feature.

              Please enable free chart movement that I can decide what pip scale I want to see at any given time.

              • CTrader should log back in itself when disconnected

                cTrader logs out when disconnected with Internet or any other server issue. It is dangerous if your cBot is running because as soon as it logs out no trades are handled and no new trades open. You have to sign back in manually when or if you see it.

                Happen to me personally and lost opportunity to make some extra money. I run cTrader on a VPS trading using cBot and I have to check it several times a day to make sure it is signed in. No point running on VPS if it still needs your constant attention all…

                    • Ever changing market opening times worldwide.

                      Given the changing market opening times worldwide due to daylight saving adjustments etc, It would be very convenient to see this as a countdown in the 'Trading Sessions' ribbon at the very bottom of the screen. To see in advance when a particular market is about to close or open. Eg. London +3.45.(in Green & open for 3h 45m) New York -1.15.(in Red & opening in 1h 15m) This would be very helpful throughout the year. Thank you for listening.

                      • Switching Multi-Time Frame Charts

                        cTrader requires 2-clicks to switch between time frames. Should add in top menu bar which displays M15, H1, H4, D1, W1 just like MT4 which requires 1 click only. If allows user option to set different time frames, so much the better.

                          • Advanced Stop Loss to work cTraders servers

                            It is possible to close my computer and let a trailling stop be active on an external server, but not for advanced stop losses. A minor tweak that would help out not leaving my computer on 24/5. Thanks in advance for considering this option.

                            • Push Notifications

                              Until you have push notifications, for me, cTrader is only good to plot your trading plan on, then I switch to Metatrader4 and place my trades.
                              Otherwise I would be using cTrader as it is in my opinion a better product. BUT. No push notifications makes it inferior
                              If programmers can supply push notifications with a shitty $20 product, surely it cant be that hard.
                              No push notifications makes it a charting software, a good one for that.

                              • Indicator Calculations changing with timeframe

                                Please add the possibility to add multiple indicators to 1 chart , for different timeframes , so that I can swap between the timeframes and the indicator adapts its calculation to it.

                                Example :

                                1. I have a Daily Chart of Asset X open with a RSI(14)
                                2. when i now change the timeframe to H4 the indicator changes to RSI(20)
                                3. When I change the timeframe to H1 then RSI changes to (24)
                                (just example numbers)

                                Currently I have to open a new chart for each timeframe+indicator calculation

                                • BEFORE YOU ADD ANY FEATURE, WORK ON FIRST "TO ENSURE THAT WE CAN CONNECT TO YOUR PLATFORM".

                                  WORK ON FIRST ON THE FAST CONNECTIVITY, STABILITY AND RELIABILITY OF YOUR CTRADER DESKTOP PLATFORM BEFORE YOU ADDED SOME FEATURES.

                                  SIMPLE ANALYSIS IS THAT WHY IM CONNECT WITH MY MT4 PLATFORM WHILE MY FXPRO CTRADER PLATFORM STILL INACTIVE???IF YOU ARE SERIOUS TO HELP US IMPROVE OUR TRADING, HELP US NOT TO WORRY OF BEING DISCONNECTED, LOGGING IN ERRORS AND FREEZING OF THE PLATFORM.

                                      • Add tick data to cTrader-web

                                        cTrader-web still does not have tick data. Is that so difficult?

                                        • Save Arbitrary Values to each Position!

                                          Ever wanted to store a quick value or field next to a position? like:

                                          - the Max percentage to TP?
                                          - the Max Draw down?
                                          - the ATR when the Entry opened etc...

                                          Would be amazing to be able to simply have a Hashtable or List of Key-Values that can be retrieved with a Position to better understand what that position has been up to so we can better determine what to do with it next!
