Overview

CQG Trader may be well suited for the individual that trades the electronic markets and does not need technical analysis tools. It allows traders to place orders via a Depth of Market window and monitor their account activity from the Orders & Positions window. The Orders & Positions window allows traders to monitor working orders, filled orders and account balances including real time profit and loss. Brokers can benefit from the ability to monitor their clients trading activity in real time and place orders on behalf of their clients when needed. We also have another version of the platform available to clients: CQG Lite.
