    • here is an idea ! how about when an optimisation is done using tick data, get the backtester to give the same results using tick data

      Here is an idea ! how about when an optimization is done using tick data, get the back tester to give the same results using tick data. Its Super annoying doing a 24h optimization using tick data and then applying the settings to the bot to get completely different results in the back tester !

        • ExecuteMarketOrder & Async (add lasting argument: close after x hours)

          Add a "time" argument to methods ExecuteMarketOrder and ExecuteMarketOrderAsync. This argument close the position after a period of time.

          public TradeResult ExecuteMarketOrder(TradeType tradeType, Symbol symbol, long volume, string label, double? stopLossPips, double? takeProfitPips, double? marketRangePips, string comment, "LASTING_TIME")

              • Remove the 2000 pending order limit.

                Currently calgo does not allow more than 2000 combined pending orders plus open positions. Id love for this to be removed.

                • API Extension for Objects and Compatibility with Backtesting

                  Full Description:
                  •Ability to apply transparency to objects, so we don't obstacle price much when we draw big lines or too many lines.
                  •Give options to have line drawings on backtesting (just like indicators) for better feedback.
                  •Include Boxes and Buttons in the API, which can be clicked on or hovered for events (also include transparency).

                  • Multi-time frames & backtests

                    The use of multi-time frames with a robot works properly in live but no longer works in backtest: solve the problem.

                    • When a Backtest has finished any positions that have been opened but not yet closed should be displayed on chart and in a 'Positions' tab

                      When you run a long backtest you can see both the history and the trade statistics for positions the robot has opened and closed. You have no way to see what positions the robot has opened but has not closed. If there were a 'Positions' tab in the backtest screen then you could go there to see what positions were opened but were never closed - and you could see all the normal information about the open positions. It would be even better if you could click on one of these 'open' positions and see it on the chart.

                            • allow the robots interact with other windows automation tools like macro express, autohotkey , so multiple bots can be called

                              allow the cbots to be called into a windows automation software like macro express and autohotkey so that data can be extracted from the ctrader into an excel sheet and also multiple cbots can be called into a signle macro when a predefined parameter set and in a particular time frame . this will enable more complex tasks with multiple cbots working together

                              • How the position was stopped?

                                if position is stopped it is important to know programmatically was it stopped by Robot, hit a Stop Loss(including Trail), Take Profit or Manually.
                                I think in API it could be done easily as we get the message from cTrader

                                        Great to see other cryptocurrencies, however, can we get support for Ripple (XRP)?

                                        • Option to seek Max Equity rather than Max NetProfit in Optimisation - the final profit is less useful than the final equity

                                          The Optimiser allows you to seek for Max NetProfit, but the reality for programs is that the NetProfit result is far less important than the final Net Equity result.
                                          It would be useful if you could seek to Maximise the equity position, rather than seeking to maximising the netprofit position.
