  1. 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

    • Walk forward optimization

      WFO for out-of-sample testing during optimization would lead to the creation of more robust systems, optimal parameter sets, and less curve-fitting.

      • Add the "Visualization" property for all objects

        It will be so useful to see a moving average(or any object like a channel) only in the daily time frame and another one in the hourly one. Just like MT4. I am so surprised that It has not been added yet!!!

          • Drag and drop SL/TP from mobile charts similar to web and show charts in full screen

            Drag and drop feature from charts is what makes Ctrader the best. however mobile platform doesnt support that. this feature along with ability to go full screen charts will make the Ctrader mobile the best platform

              • Live Sentiment Data Access

                Love the new LIVE SENTIMENT but it would be nice to have access to historical data of the Live Sentiment.
                It must be quite simple to add this and actually not sure why it wasnt added as soon as the feature was introduced.
                Would be great to use Sentiment in indicators and Cbots

                Also would be great if Sentiment had at least 1 decimal place.

                Please vote of for this option so we can see it happen.

                Thanks Spotware for great platform!!

                • Enable "offline" Backtesting

                  In order to be able to backtest cBots while not being connected to the internet and/or the Sportware Server the abillity to backtest "offline" would be highly appreciated.
                  Like a local "offline" Backtesting Account with the option to define initial funds.

                          • 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..

                            • RISK MANAGEMENT.......Calculator to determine correct Lot/trade size - multiple trades A bar indicator such as in Cmirror

                              When you have a few trades open, it becomes difficult to quickly determine lot/trade size to play and still be within your 1, 2 or 5 % of capital limit which you use. A calculator / display top left corner in a BAR CHART mode such as used in the Cmirror program will help managing the RISK.

                                • Alerts for all oscillators, volume etc.

                                  Be great to have pop-up, email and or SMS alerts for all oscillators, volume and price conditions set or modified by individual requirements, with multiple time frames and an option to repeat until canceled or modified.

                                  i.e. right click on the set parameter with an option to "set alert" in the pop-up menu.

                                  Great platform.

                                    • Position sizing based on Balance or Equity

                                      It would be great to have an option to select a position size (volume to trade) based on the Balance or Equity.
                                      There could be two radio buttons in the Market Watch and Chart QuickTrade panels with which the user could select whether he wants to select from the list of absolute values (or enter an arbitrary volume); or he rather wants the position size to be a fraction/percentage of the Balance or Equity.
                                      The % value should be chosen from a dropdown (or any arbitrary amount could be typed in), and that whether Balance or Equity should the calculation…

                                      • Multi account and broker manager

                                        I have 3 different live accounts, with 3 different brokers. I would like to be able to manage all three of my accounts from within one cliek.

                                        Thank you

                                        • Please Enable ChartShot API

                                          I wish you could enable the chart shot API so we can programmatically take a snap shot of the chart.
