  1. 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.

  2. Learn From TradingView

    This really applies to your entire platform. Either let us get the graph data on tradingview and use an api to use there system to trade. Or learn there ways. They have already done all the heavy lifting and research just emaulate there features 1 by 1 and your system will attract 100x your current client base. Its so simple not sure how you guys don't see or understand this.

  3. 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 :)

  6. Zoom Chart with Scrollwheel

    Use the scroll wheel to zoom in on the current chart should be a configurable option.

    Also, being able to view orderbook depth visualized like so:

  8. News calendar should be displayed on the chart when switched on can display its impact on the price action

    My idea is to have a fundamental news button in the ctrader platform which when switched on can display which news is getting released at what time and its impact on the currency. Suppose I m trading Eur/Usd, Usd/Jpy and Gold so I can place a tick mark in the settings in front of Eur, Usd,Jpy and Gold and any news that is going to be released that is concerned with the selected objects will be displayed only on the chart and not all other currencies.

  9. custom Parameters

    would be very useful to have the possibility to insert parameter type enums. For example : Type trade op.: "Sell" "Buy" "Sell & Buy" "Auto"

  10. Show Net profit instead of Gross profit on position line

    A position line on a chart is showing info like lot size, pips, gross profit and it is difficult to tell if a position is already hit profit or still in loss because the gross profit does not add up commission and other costs. The problem is during scalping and many position which are closed after seeing +ve gross profit ended up up in loss because of that

  15. Aggregated stoploss, Take profits

    Aggregated positons are an excellent addition. It would be really good if I could set stoploss and take profit for all orders within an agregated group?

    So If I have 10 positions for GBP/JPY, I don't have to manully set 10 different stoploss and move 10 different stoploss. I can just move 1 aggregated stoploss.

  16. Chart hotkeys: Change Pair [Ctrl]+[Up]/[Dwn] | time-frame [Ctrl]+[Left]/[Right]

    Allow these kind of hotkeys to quickly move through the pairs in the symbols list in a chart or change the displayed time-frame without the time-consuming need to click through the corresponding menus

  18. would be cool to have a risk reward ratio tool

    i'd like to visualize trades, testing entry strategies etc.. trading view hit the nail on it's head with that and i've grown accustomed.. sucks to rely on the pointer to manually measure pips then do the maths in my head..

  19. 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…

  20. Auto restart/play/run option after shutdown

    If the computer/vps/server crash, cAlgo in my case is launched automaticly. However cAlgo robots are put on STOP. They need to automaticly go back into ACTIVE/PLAY to handle orders ASAP.

    Would like an option for this as I'm already trading cAlgo live.
