      • Chat Function

        Bloomberg terminal has chatroom capability. Most have heard how they have cool chat room names like "The Cartel" etc...Why don't ctrader have one. This would be very nice for traders. Trading as we know it is a very lonely endeavour. This kind of chatroom would enable traders to interact and relieve the boredom. It would be fun :)

            • Enable alerts when price touches my trendlines.

              When price touches my trendline I should get an alert so I take advantage of reversals and breakouts.

              • Add a On/Off switch to the indicator dropdown menu

                Add a On/Off switch to the indicator dropdown menu without always putting in all the settings from the beginning. For faster usage of a set of indicators without always having a visually messed up chart...

                  [Demo] 1020304 - $ 200,000.00 - 1:50 - "Long term trades"
                  [Demo] 1020305 - $ 200,000.00 - 1:50 - "Short term trades"
                  [Live ] 1122334 - $ 800,000.00 - 1:1 - "Primary trading account"
                  [Live ] 1122355 - $ 800,000.00 - 1:1 - "Live strategy test 1"

                  • Add Trailing Stop or Move to Break Even to QuickTrade Menu

                    Under 'QuickTrade Execution Settings" add a box to also enable Trailing Stops and/or Move to Break Even.
                    This way you won't need to manually set up trailing stops or move to break evens for every trade that you make.

                    • Risk/Reward Ratio Function

                      A risk vs reward function similar to the one in TradingView. Either incorporated in each position/order or as a separate tool in toolbar.

                        • Stop automatically creating a new workspace when logging in using cTrader ID

                          Emailed support about this as i thought it was a bug at first. Apparently its a design choice?

                          Not sure if anyone else has this problem, but when logging in using your cTrader ID login its creates another workspace. I have reached workspace 50+. Its made worse when logging into multiple devices as trying to remember or find the correct workspace is now a nightmare.

                          This seems like a simple change.

                          Thanks

                            • Copy Lines and forms

                              I would like to see as in mt4 that you can copy lines, rectangles etc. Something like this;

                              1. Select line or form
                              2. Hold Ctrl
                              3. Drag the line or form that must be copied, and there is your copied line or form.

                              • Update Routine: *DO NOT* auto-download updates in the middle of FX trading hours

                                Instead post a second hint/button to manually start the required downloads, just as it is done now, *after* the download to choose the time to *install* the update.

                                  • BEFORE YOU ADD ANY FEATURE, WORK ON FIRST "TO ENSURE THAT WE CAN CONNECT TO YOUR PLATFORM".

                                    WORK ON FIRST ON THE FAST CONNECTIVITY, STABILITY AND RELIABILITY OF YOUR CTRADER DESKTOP PLATFORM BEFORE YOU ADDED SOME FEATURES.

                                    SIMPLE ANALYSIS IS THAT WHY IM CONNECT WITH MY MT4 PLATFORM WHILE MY FXPRO CTRADER PLATFORM STILL INACTIVE???IF YOU ARE SERIOUS TO HELP US IMPROVE OUR TRADING, HELP US NOT TO WORRY OF BEING DISCONNECTED, LOGGING IN ERRORS AND FREEZING OF THE PLATFORM.

                                      • Possibility to lock objects (drawings)

                                        Too often do I run into a situation where I accidentally move a trendline or a box when I only wanted to drag the chart, or another object close by. In MT4 the user had to double click to select (and then deselect) an object before editing. That is not necessary perhaps, but then we should be able to lock certain objects so that they can't be moved until unlocked. And/or a "lock all drawings on chart" feature.
                                        Alternatively, dragging objects could be only possible by holding down some control key (ctrl, alt, shift, etc).

                                        • next chart and previous chart button/shortcut

                                          Just a simple function to select next/previous chart on tab will help tremendously especially doing multiple timeframe analysis.
