    • 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

                    • Quicker method to switch between favourite timeframes

                      Currently the only way to switch timeframes requires clicking on timeframe button, then scrolling through a long list to click on desired timeframe. I switch many times between 1-hour, 4-hour and daily timeframes on all my charts - the current method is too slow and tedious. Please allow me to assign keyboard shortcuts/hotkeys to my favourite timeframes and/or add them to a user customizable "favourites" toolbar that requires only a single mouse click.

                      • 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?

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

                                  • 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…

                                      • More tick data back testing.

                                        More tick data back testing now only 10 months. I want more than 3 or 10 years because when testing with 10 months I cannot be sure I's will be work for a long term. It's very important!!! Thank you.

                                        • 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 :)
