  2. 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 :)

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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 :)

  12. 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...

  16. 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).

  17. 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

  19. 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.
