  1. 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.

              • 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.

                • 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"

                        • 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.

                          • 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

                                  • 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…

                                    • Pivot Points - Built in Support (D/W - Current/ History)

                                      There are many Pivot indicators, but they usually miss a lot of core functionality. Its good idea to include Pivot Points as built in supported indicator including:

                                      (a) Various Pivot calculating methods
                                      (b) Multiple Pivot Timeframes (Daily, Weekly, Monthly)
                                      (c) Ability to adjust timezone to calculate Pivots (ex: Broker time + 3 hrs)
                                      (d) Ability to automatically disappear Pivots when required (ex: Daily Pivot disappear from Weekly Chart instead of useless lines)
                                      (e) Ability to club Pivots when they appear on "x" Pips distance. (ex: If Daily and Weekly Pivots come near 10 pips distance show whole area as S/R…

                                      • 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.

                                        • Make take profit or stop loss lines as trend line not only horizontal line

                                          As we can draw a trend line directly to the chart, It can be used as a take profit line or a stop loss line..
                                          that will make us able to change the take profit position or stop loss gradually and automatically over the time ... :)
