  2. The Settings vertical bar on the left need to be able to hide it, or you have to place it horizontally

    The vertical settings bar is taking space of my screen!! its inch counts, why did you place it this way and the top horizontal bar only has 3 tabs(you're wasting space). How often will we use this settings bar !?
    We should be able to hide it, or place it at the top next to 3 tabs. You are eating space of my screen!

  4. Watchlist in the Symbol Drop-Down list.

    Access the watchlist from the drop-down list of a symbol and in by right clicking: symbols.

    Right now I only see the predefined lists of Ctrader and no way to see my watchlists.

  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 :)

    Hi there

    I just had a very bad experience using your platform for the first time live
    Not happy just lost money because platform did not perform. I had hundreds of micro trades setups in the sell. 3pips was take profit. The opening sestion on the AUD/NZD fell and I should of take profit on many trades and while the AUD had finished fulling I should of been placing trades to buy at the sametime i had some trades I wanted to liquidat when the AUD was lower and it would of mand the trades less expensive when executing some…

  8. Ctrader Pending Order - Add a 'Live' Button To Trigger Sooner

    Simple idea but could save time when there's a lot of moves.

    The idea is too add, on the Pending Order Bar, a 'Live' Button to trigger the pending sooner, for example when you made a mistake and your pending is too low or too high, it would save time instead of going for a new setup + settings.

    That's it, simple but efficient i do think.

  10. Dark theme for the new mobile app

    There is only one (white) theme in the new mobile app version (2.7+) which is not good for amoled displays as well as for those who need to watch the chart for a longer time.
    Dark theme would be very helpful; ideally customizable.

  11. Sync Drawings Across Linked Charts & Lock Drawings

    Let's say I have two charts open, both on different time frames (one on 4hr and another on 1hr) and have them both linked by using the letter A assignment for both charts and the active symbol panel (thus linking all of these to any symbol I select). While we are at it; syncing the crosshair between linked charts is also preferable.

    Why not use this method to also sync the drawings? Now we have to perform 2 of the same drawing actions (let's say drawing a horizontal line) on both of the charts we have open for the same…

  13. Some ideas for more efficient Optimization:

    • Pause/Resume Optimization.
    • Save Optimization Launch Parameters in file and the possibility of loading it for testing another Symbol.
    • Take a screenshot of "Equity Chart" for the least interesting passes and show the image when double-click the pass to have an idea of the result of each pass (don’t show the real chart to optimize memory using save the image in windows temp directory to clean it).
    • Conditional parameter setting, (Ex.: don’t increment one parameter or many if another one is setted with specific value (Ex.: true/false for Boolean type).
    • Save the result of the optimization…

  14. Close all filtered positions

    When we are in a filtered mode, it would be awesome to have a new button appear to close only the positions that are shown currently, i.e. the currently filtered positions.

  15. Vedi e modifica commenti agli allert

    Una volta inserito un commento per un allert, questo commento non è più visibile o modificabile. Si può eliminare un allert, si può spostare il livello di prezzo dell'allert, ma i commenti ad esso associato non sono visibili ne modificabili.

  19. Overload for Positions.Find --> Use unique ID

    Right now you can not find a position by its unique ID, but this is what the unique ID is for --> to pinpoint to an exact position.

    You can overcome the shortcoming by using linq
    List<Position> positions = Positions.FindAll(_tradeLabel, Symbol).Where(x=>x.Id == FindMyID).ToList();
    , but this is a terrible approach!

    Please add an overload to the Positions.Find(uniqueID)

  20. Trailing Stop Loss - Pips in trail

    It's counter intuitive to use pips FROM the buy/sell price when setting a TSL (or even a normal SL)

    A TSL is TRAILING and, as such, you should be able to set it to TRAIL by a number of pips.

    If I'm 353.2 pips into profit, and want a TSL to trail by 50 pips, I shouldn't need to set it to PLUS 303.2 pips for that to happen.

    It's even worse when you're setting one before you're fully into the amount of profit you want. I'm 75.6 into profit and want 100 pip TSL, I need to set the…
