  2. Manual Strategy Back testing

    I love the development on the Algo side of things. But if in backtest, we could try our own manual strategies to improve ourselves instead of bot, on pre historic market data.

    So essentially manual backtest trading ....

    E.g. I could select the week of the Brexit vote back in 2016, and trade that week, like it was a live session. To see how i would have done that week with my manual strategy. Cheers

    I firmly believe MT4 is Dead. Its time for a post ( 2008 ) crisis platform to takeover.

    Thanks for all your work.

  3. Add "Pips" column to History tab of Back tester

    The "Pips" column is missing on the back tester history tab, please add it the same way it's on the cTrader and back tester events tab.

  4. Make the Indicator/cBot parameters window re-sizable

    I'm waiting for a very long time to see when you are going to make the indicator and cBot parameter windows resizable but you haven't done it yet.

    Lots of times my parameter names or exceeding the limit and wrapped up, and the user can't resize the parameters window to see the full parameter name.

    Also please make the "Create Order" window re-sizable too.

  5. Update API to .Net Framework to 4.6.1

    Coding against a .Net 4 Dll is really time consuming and starves off a lot of handy framework features. Not to mention countless NuGet packages to would make coding so much easier but which don't support .Net 4.
    Please update the API to a state of the art framework like 4.6.1

  6. Include Renko in the API

    Include Renko in the API. The community supplied Renko indictors aren't accurate enough when I re set the brick sizes....I'm guessing a SpotWare one would work better :)

  8. Allow accessing Indicator outputs color

    When an indicator has several outputs for the user it's hard and annoying to recognize what each output represents, a good example can bee indicators that shows the strength of FX currencies.

    To solve the issue developer can add a legend to the indicator so for adding legend developer have to know the indicator output colors which are set by the user.

  9. Add Color, DateTime, DateTimeOffset (with time offset), and Time picker parameters

    I thought you will add this parameter types alongside Enum parameter but I don't know why you haven't?

    Please add this parameter types as it will be a huge UX improvement and a great help for developers.

  10. Add account cash flow history or transactions to the Account object

    Please add the account cash flow history or transactions to the account object, it should be a collection of transaction or cash flow objects.

    The object must have time, type (deposit, withdraw, bonus,..), and amount properties.

    Giving access to this data will allow developers to develop lots of cool risk management add-ons for cTrader.

  11. Add "Description" attribute recognition for Enum parameters

    Adding Enum parameters was really helpful and huge UX improvement but as you know there is no way to add space for an enum value so the workaround this issue is using "Description" attribute for enum values which is very common on WPF apps.

    Please add this feature so we will be able to use the "Description" attribute for enum values.

  12. TimeFrame parameters default value must be the current chart time frame

    If you don't set a default value for a time frame parameter the cTrader sets its value to the hourly chart, can you change this behavior?

    It should not set it to "Hourly" time frame instead it should set it to the current chart time frame (the chart that indicator or cBot is attached to).

  13. Add "Kind" property to the TimeFrame Object

    There is no way to know what kind of chart your indicator is attached to, there must be a property on TimeFrame objects that gives the chart current time frame type.

    By type I mean is it Renko, standard, range,...

    The property must be an enum.

  15. link "scrollbar" of multiple windows with different timeframes of the same symbol

    when multiple windows are open on different timeframes on the same symbol it could be nice to "link" them so when you move scrollbar of a window, all the others moves to center on the same time focused

  16. Simulate withdrawal in backtesting

    Withdrawing money from an account is integral to any trading system. Withdrawal parameters in backtesting settings should be available, to simulate the amount to be withdrawn, and the period of withdrawal (eg every week;month) with another parameter to specify the recurrence of the withdrawal (eg every week/month, every second week/month).

  18. Add plugins/extensions to cTrader

    What will cTrader Plug-in/extension will do:

    The plug-in will be very similar to a cBot but it will be running upon cTrader open and until it's closed, it will have much more access to the platform than a cBot like:

    * Being able to draw objects on all open charts
    * Having a list of all open charts
    * Being able to open/close charts
    * It will know which chart currently has the focus
    * Being able to change a chart time frame or symbol
    * Do trading operations similar to cBot
    * Add new chart types
    * Access the…

  20. Add Tooltip for Chart Objects

    All chart objects must have a tooltip property, so whenever the user moves the mouse over the object it should show that tooltip which is provided programmatically.

    It's a very important and easy to implement feature please add it ASAP.
