  1. Quicktrade execution settings in pippettes, not just full pips

    When scalping the market using very small targets/stops it would be great to be able to set these in pipettes for more flexibility.

  2. Allow different timeframes (above 1M) in backtest to speed up computation

    When backtesting over long periods of time with for example 1H bars, when you only open and close positions at the beginning of a new bar, you want to save the many minute bars in between. That is, because you won't trade on those anyway.

    Please enable backtester to be able to compute on all timeframes different from 1M - also reading higher timeframes from CSV.

  6. API for swaps

    it would be nice to have an API in Algo class for swaps.

    The following should be available:
    1) For nearest swap, per Symbol: nearest DateTime, amount in pips for short and long, type of swap (1day, 3day).
    2) For Position: nearest DateTime, amount in pips, amount in account currency, amount in quote currency, type of swap.
    3) For symbol: long swap in pips, short swap in pips when 3day swap occurs.

  9. Ability to change the colour of the bid and ask lines

    Simple adjustment but common amongst most charting platforms. Would be fantastic to be able to change the colour of the bid and ask lines to that of your choosing.

  10. More detailed account information

    the current Account class cannot provide authentication information like broker name, account owner, account number. Please, implement this.

  11. ฺBreak even with some pips

    Very often after BE got triggered, my position would be closed with a little loss. So I think it would be great if in the advance protection, we have an extra option to add certain amount of pips to our break even. For example, BE +5 pip.

  12. Option to show Bid/Ask tabs on the price scale only, so lines won't be on the chart.

    Would like an option to remove the on-chart Bid and Ask Price Lines, but keep the current Price Tabs that move on the Price Scale on the right. Those Price Tabs are attached to the lines, but I would prefer to not see them. The lines are distracting and intrusive, at times.

    Being able to change the Price Tab colors would be nice, too.

  13. Ability to modify the thickness of bars in bar chart mode.

    I would like to be able to increase the thickness of bars in the bar chart mode.- something like the thickness of candles. This would make the bars much more visible, and much easier for scalping.

  14. Background Objects

    Objects - The ability to display drawn objects behind charts (candles), not for them to sit directly on top. MT is the best example.

  16. Customize time frame visualization for moving averages. For example, I may want a 200 sma to show up only in my hour chart, but not 5 min.

    For example, I may want a 200 sma to show up only in my hour chart, but not on my 5 minute. Currently, to achieve this, I have to make 2 separate charts of the same fx pair. Causes too much clutter on my screen.

  17. Create a cTrader / cAlgo App marketplace where developers can create Apps that can easily programmatically integrate with the platform.

    We need to be able to write software that seamlessly integrate with the cTrader and cAlgo platform. We want to invent and create our own Apps that we can sell on a cTrader marketplace within the platform. We want to be able to access a broader API to create more than algorithms. We want to create Add-On's that will make the life of Traders easier and provide them with choice at the same time. This can make cTrader the best there is and at the same time add an additional revenue stream to the business and cTrader App developers.

  18. Ability to be able to shift the charts on the right as far as possible.

    At present the chart shift is locked so you can only have a small amount of space on the right of price. Would be fantastic to be able to move price as far as one wishes to the left. Multicharts is a great example of this.

  19. The ability to shade an area between to horizontal lines to mark buy and selling zones

    This will allow the trader to easily view the shaded areas on multiple charts and see when the direction has moved enough to place the trade

  20. Async callbacks for all trading events (requests and responses to the cServer), including from GUI

    It would be nice to have callbacks for all trading events, including the ones which are initiated by other cBots and the user.

    These callbacks should be at two key places. When the request is sent to the server and when response for the request is received back.

    There are async style methods ("new trading API")

    ExecuteMarketOrderAsync

    PlaceLimitOrderAsync
    PlaceStopOrderAsync
    CancelPendingOrderAsync
    ModifyPendingOrderAsync

    ModifyPositionAsync
    ClosePositionAsync

    methods for creating orders and positions. They do have callbacks of type Action, but they are useful only in the currently running cBot.

    There are Positions.Opened and Positions.Closed events which work for all opens and closes for…
