  2. Allow Chart objects to be moved backwards and forwards

    In Ninja Trader if you click on a Chart object and hold down "Shift" you can then use the mouse wheel and move that object in front or behind other objects

  9. Why Not be Green ware?

    I've seen the install directionay of cAlgo and cTrader,it looks like this:C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Apps\2.0\0NAOG16H.3JN\0Q6ZABAR.1V3\comm..rces_3499da3018340880_0001.0000_ar-sa_8a13743ec8003b57\ .
    it's so unclear,unstructured,unGreen.what if I'm thinking about moving it to another dir? or rebuid my operating system ? or my c: disk is full ? if i want to add another broker, i have to install another ctrader ? why not add a server setup guid like MT4,or a ini file is perfect too.

  11. Redraw Chart, for heavy process.

    When working with indicators that have heavy processing, it would be handy to be able to call a Redraw so progress can be updated on screen.
    Users can either call the redraw after a certain amount of iterations or fire it with a timer, updating a progress Text item or chart on screen.
    This would be preferable to event log spam or a blank chart.

  12. Slippage report on orders/TCA(Transaction Cost Analysis)

    For example, when you create a pending stop order/stop loss vs filled price. You already have this on ctrader but it is for individual order.

    How about making a comprehensive report tab? In a way this is like a simple TCA(Transaction Cost Analysis). So, that you could easily view a broker's performance.

  14. Would like the option of being able to select a single or multiple time frame in which any element, lines,shapes,MA's etc can be viewed

    Would like the option of being able to select a single or multiple time frame in which any element, lines,shapes,MA's etc can be viewed. For example I only want to see a 15min support line up to a 1hour chart but beyond that don't want it to appear in any higher time frame. Right click on the line once it's on the chart and tick the appropriate times frames that it can be visible in.

  15. calgo could import third party tickdata for accurate backtest

  16. Customization of the Lot Size Drop Menu

    Add feature where the lot sizes appearing in the drop menu can be customized by the trader. (Example - I don't need the 100.00 size, but I could use 0.12 to quickly select from the menu) As it is, I have to type some of these sizes which slows me down when scalping.

  17. trailing

    Under the "Order Execution Settings", It will be nice to have a dynamic trailing stop loss feature, where the trailing moves in step of 0.1 pip. I got the idea from another broker FXCM Trading Station II. They have a YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHxN6KqhoZU to explain the meaning of dynamic trailing stop loss. It will be great for the traders who like trailing stop.

  18. Fibonacci must have the "magnet" function as well as MT4

    I hope that fibonacci’s starting and ending points can easily stick to each bar's OHLC.

  20. More backtesting data for the smaller charts such as the 5 min and 15 min on Ctrader- 1 years' of data rather than 1 month for the 5 min.

    To be able to backtest thoroughly a strategy, more than 1 months data is required in order to know how a strategy performs in a bad month or months. The last 5-6 months have been great months, but I cannot test my 5 min strategy on most of these months and any earlier and bad months (eg April 2014 or end of July) because the 5 min only provides me with about 1 month of data. Having access to 1 year of data for all charts would be sensational on Ctrader. CAlgo has it, but having it on Ctrader would…
