  1. 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.

      • 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

        • 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…

            • Can robot writing be designed to be graphical - similar to the way queries are in Microsoft Access without knowing SQL language

              It is so hard to find the robot you want, and you have to pay! So much better if you could do it yourself.

              • Fibonacci Lines - Extendable (right side of chart)

                The Fibonacci Lines in Retracement tool have fixed length. It is very useful if traders are able to extend the lines as per requirement at right side of lines. Specifically I like to mention "Market Analyst" - in Market Analyst I can click and drag the Fibonacci lines as long as I want.

                • Daily risk limits - If account loses x% or x$ then trading functionality stops for x time

                  Ability to set predefined daily trading loss limits which will allow individual traders to operate more like a trading firm and limit losses from bad days when bad psychology is in play and protect capital.

                  If account balance losses = or exceed x% of account balance or x$ during the trading day or session (trading day/session to be defined by trader in settings). Then the trading functionality will automatically stop and shut out the trader until the next trading day/session.

                  There would also need to be a set period of time from when the settings are changed until they take…

                  • Reliable Trendline

                    A reliable Trendline drawing tool that won't shift the trendlines when we switch the chart from one time frame to another.

                    Currently, if I draw a trendline on a daily/weekly chart that goes back a year or two then switch to a lower time frame chart (e.g. 1 hourly), the trendline shifts significantly. Please fix this problem to make cTrader a reliable tool.

                    • Speed up / Rewrite whole application!

                      ctrader works very slow, on many tabs/cards with currencies and especially extremally slow when I open more posiotions (like 50 and more - it can lost connection in that case). I suppose it was only case for my computer, but I checked on other brand new computers (Mac's on iSpot). Please improve speed and memory management, idk it that touching only web version but I supppose not because both are wrote in Java. In that case it will be hard to do something with it, rewrite whole application to C++ and for weeb version something light&fast like Adobe Flex maybe?

                        • To be able to colour change market limit buy and limit sell also the stop loss and loss and profit line

                          when a limit buy or limit sell is activated the indicator should change color so you can differentiate from the activated trade from a none activated limit order

                            • Assign templates/time frame to hot key

                              I usually do top down analysis using multiple templates and time frames. I would love to be able to quickly switch between the ones I use the most by pressing hot keys. Using mouse to switch around when you watch 20-30 pairs takes too much time for my liking.

                              • Save templates with texts and lines and not only indicators & have save button on the platform to retrieve analysed data when it crashes

                                It's cumbersome when you analyse data and make markings on the platform then your computer crashes hence losing information in the platform; which would force someone to start analysing data all over again. Please enable the feature of saving templates using texts and lines marked on the platform, and not only indicators, so as to easily retrieve lost data when rebooting the platform.

                                Also, currently the only way to save analysed data is by closing the platform and relaunching it. This is tedious and if there were a save button to reduce the hustle, it would make the ctrader a…

                                      • Improved ability to convert ex4 / mql to cBot

                                        "Sorry, but your robot can not be converted. At the moment we support only 63% of MQ4 robots."

                                        Most vendors sell their EAs in ex4 / mql format. Please improve the ability of traders to convert their files to use on cTrader!
