    • Ability to be able specify % of account when creating a trade and then cTrader auto calculates and populates the lot size.

      The ability to specify the % of your account you wish to allocate to a trade and then cTrader automatically gives you the relevant lot size/volume. For this to work you would need to specify the stop loss price so that cTrader can calculate the position based on your current account value, the current price and the stop price. For example, if I was trading a $2000 dollar account, I would like to specify a EURUSD trade of 0.5% of my account where the stop loss is 50 pips. cTrader would then autopopulate a lot size of 2k.

          • Automatic TP & SL on Advanced Trade Management

            When you set up pending orders you can preset a TP and Stop but if you want to have partial TP at preset pip levels and move stop to b/e at a predetermined profit level you have to wait until the trade is triggered before these can be set. It would be really useful if this could be preset so it all happened automatically when the trade is triggered.

            • Customisable Tick Chart - Choose any number of ticks per candle

              I find the tick charts too small, personally I like to use tick charts up to 1000 ticks. the normal use of tick charts for scalpers are 80 to 500 ticks, the current 34 ticks is not usable

              • Option to Link chart windows to each other

                It would be great to have the possibility to link open chart windows to each other. Let's say I am frequently looking into the daily, 4H and 30m chart and have these 3 charts open. If I could link them to each other I could change the pair in one of the charts and have the other two charts change automatically to use the same pair.

                  • More Tick Periods

                    On ticks charts we have only t1, t2, t3, .... to t34.
                    Trading on t34 is very difficult because is very fast.

                    I would like to see t70, t100, t150, t200, etc...

                    Thanks!

                    • simple,powerful ctrader

                      I love ctrader.

                      ctrader continue evolving.

                      I`ve used ctrader from in its early days.

                      ctrader has made remarkable progress than the early days.

                      now, ctrader have many features. i feel platform is heavy or slow.

                      all features are not need for all clients.

                      so i suggest symple mode.

                      or trader can select features.

                      How do you think about my suggestion?

                        • Let us move charts to the left side FURTHER, and magnify a vertical scale solely

                          Please let us move charts to the left side at our disposal. It is ideal and, to some extent crucial that charts can be navigated to the left side, to the extent where only a single bar is left displayed on a screen.

                          It is so much of a shame that we are only allowed to move charts freely upside down, in appreciation of my suggestion :

                          http://vote.spotware.com/forums/229166-ideas-and-suggestions-for-ctrader-and-calgo/suggestions/7199004-let-us-move-chart-freely-and-stop-charts-from-bei

                          Also please allow enlarging charts vertically. Zoom in function forcibly works both to vertical and horizontal scales. We sometimes need to magnify a vertical scale of charts purely.

                          Good chart trading function…

                              • 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…

                                    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.

                                    • Button for pausing pending orders

                                      This would be EXTREMELY useful before news. Right now it is very annoying to cancel and then re-enter several pending orders.. Please do it :)

                                      • cTrader and cAlgo use an excesive amount of memory

                                        Both applications seem to have problems freeing memory. When having several charts open it becomes a big problem since it uses all the RAM memory available in your computer (I have tried with up to 4GB).

                                        The issue becomes more evident when you leave the application running for several hours. The problem does not seem to be having too many bars in the background of each chart but how the objects and structures handling this information are being treated in the code.

                                        This is a main issue and a great disadvantage over other trading platforms.

                                        • 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 :)
