Version 4.5 of the platform offers traders to change BATS (bid, ask, trade, settlement) setting on charts.

Provider of high-performance trading, market data, and technical analysis tools CQG has recently rolled out a new version of the CQG Desktop platform, with the enhancements concerning quotes and charting.

In CQG Desktop Version 4.5, columns to display yield values for fixed income symbols have been added. Further, traders now have the ability to hide market order buttons. Also, when HOT is in focus, typing in a number changes the order size.

In terms of charting, BATS (bid, ask, trade, settlement) setting has been added. To change the BATS setting, on the chart, click on the gear icon beside the symbol, either in the manage chart dialog or on the chart surface.

The preceding version of the solution, which was released in late June, enabled filtering by any column in Quote SpreadSheet (QSS). To access this feature, click on the filter icon in the toolbar in the upper right of the QSS window. It will reveal a filter bar below the column headers. Then click on the filter icon in the column you want to filter, then select a condition from the dropdown.

That version of the platform also added exchange as a column in QSS and SpreadSheet Trader, and adds ISIN number to CSPEC. Regarding trading, in version 4.4 of the platform, child orders in a bracket can have separate duration from the parent order.

Regarding charting, version 4.4 of the platform improved chart zoom using the mouse wheel. Also, when trading sidebar is open, placing a horizontal line will change price selection for trading. Further, the platform has enabled traders to change fractional study parameters.
