  1. Sync cross hairs on all charts.

    Three charts, 3 time frames. Crosshairs should appear on all.

    And crosshairs should remain "on" until I turn them off. They keep disabling.

    And configuration options would be nice (thin lines., dotted, colors etc)

    • Customizable HOTKEYS for all Tools and Features.

      Please implement customizable HOTKEYS for all tools and features. Wouldn't this be rather simple to create?

      • Can you please implement harmonic pattern recognition tool to be added

        Hi if you go to tradingviews.com they charts have Harmonics Pattern Recognition tool, where you can drag from low to high where itll draw ABCD pattern etc. Can you please implement that in cTrader. cTrader is already good, but itll be much better if you add Harmonic Recognition tool, and maybe Fibonacci Auto Recognition, where you can place at low to high and itll draw c retracement levels, with extension levels in color coded. That would make ctrader much more flexible and durable platform with added extra features that allow traders to have more flexibility and

            • Grid Lines customizable for Price Point Levels

              The background Grid lines are separated with a fixed distance of 25 PIPS. Here is an idea to improve this:

              (a) Grid lines should be adjustable in fixed PIPS - for example: traders should be able to set 50 or even 100 pip distance for grid lines for all charts / plus
              (b) Grid lines should be adjustable in fixed PIPS / Timeframe - for example: Traders should be able to adjust 500 PIP grid line in daily weekly timeframe while 50 PIP gridline in 15 minutes timeframe.

              • Trailing stop loss "activate when gaining" and "Trail for" settings

                The previous version of CTrader had a real nice feature where you could set WHEN you want the trailing stop loss to activate but also how much to Trail by.

                This feature was removed and replaced with different feature which in my opinion is not as versatile as the old "activate when gaining" and "Trail for" settings.

                I want "activate when gaining" and "Trail for" settings back on Ctrader please.

                    • Application Settings - Custom event sounds. Support for .wav and .mp3.

                      1. Ability to assign custom sounds to application events.

                      2. Minimum supported events for custom sounds could be:
                      2.1. Application start-up.
                      2.2. Application shutdown.
                      2.3. Place order.
                      2.4. Open Position
                      2.5. Close position.
                      2.6. T/P
                      2.7. S/L
                      2.8. Fair Stop Out.

                      3. Sound files should be located in a folder on the local machine.
                      3.1. In the absence of a file that has been selected for one or more events, cTrader can just automatically fall back to the default sound/s.

                      3. Sound file support.
                      3.1. ( *.MP3 )

                      • Please add preference to make keyboard and mouse shortcut keys customizable like in DOOM II.

                        I'm trying to switch to Ctrader but so stuck in my ways I need the freedom to remap keys and buttons to my R.A.T mouse etc. So the more flexibility the better. Help! (P.S the secret middle mouse button function is great as is but you didn't tell anyone about it.)

                          • Multiple targets when entering a trade, not after it is filled

                            It would be nice to have the option to set multiple targets on pending orders instead of having to wait till it is filled and then change it to multiple targets.

                            Im trading end of day so this is an issue for me having to check every now and then if an order has been filled yet...

                              • Crossover moving average Alert

                                CTrader has only very basic price alerts. Should add alert filter(upto 3-6 conditions) for indicators, eg moving average, stochastic, macd, rsi,etc with greater than, less than, equal and crossover for alerts. Request for push notification alerts to smartphone instead of email which is always 15 mins later.

                                  • Allow modification of "Comment" after a trade is opened.

                                    Allow modification of the "Comment" attribute once a trade has started. Currently, you can only create a "Comment" on the trade at the opening. Being able to do this, would allow the trader to 'name' their own trades, making it easier to identify them when lots of trades are open at once.

                                    • News alerts

                                      User can select which specific news he wants an email/platform alert on from a calendar. And can adjust to give alerts before x minutes. So that he doesn't miss out a trade :)

                                        • Dark theme for the new mobile app

                                          There is only one (white) theme in the new mobile app version (2.7+) which is not good for amoled displays as well as for those who need to watch the chart for a longer time.
                                          Dark theme would be very helpful; ideally customizable.
