  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.

          • 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…

            • 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…

              • 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.

                    • Keyboard shortcuts for basic functions on the chart

                      I'm with the mouse set up on crosshair, I find a support line and I want a horizontal line there, I hit a shortcut and bam! :)

                      Trend lines also, Vertical lines...

                      you got the idea!

                        • 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.

                          • Right Side Menu on Detached Charts

                            Please have the Right Side Menu on Main Page also available on the Detached Charts although some of the Symbols are available through Right Click but like Cross Hair, Fibonacci Retracement etc are not.

                            • 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.

                                      • cAlgo. Add to property Symbol Swap value Short and Long.

                                        cAlgo. Add to property Symbol Swap value Short and Long.
                                        For example: Symbol.SwapShort Symbol.SwapLong.
                                        This is necessary because the value of these brokers are constantly changing.

                                        • Fibo 76.4 replaced with 78.6

                                          Fibo level 76.4% is incorrect and should be replaced with 78.6%. Although 76.4% is the symmetry for 23.6% it has no meaning in relation to the numbers/ratios. Retracement ratio 78.6% is a derived primary ratio calculated as a square root of the primary level 61.8% and as such has mathematical justification. Please consider the correction.
