Standard Studies in CQG

Click to EnlargeTechnical studies play a key role for traders. The information from studies is an aid to determine both the market direction and when to take a position. CQG sets the standard for technically-based traders by the quality of the graphics and the ease of application of studies.

CQG offers more than 100 studies, some of which can be found nowhere else, and CQG also adds new ones at traders’ requests.





Studies can be placed on the toolbar so you can add the study to the chart by one click, or you can call up a study from a list by right-clicking on the chart. CQG retains a list of your most recently-used studies so you don’t have to look through a long list each time you want to add a study to a chart.

After the study is plotted on the chart, a right-click on the study brings up a menu with the following choices:

  • Add a study on the study
  • Remove the study from the chart
  • Modify the parameters of the study
  • Set the color for the study
  • Select a condition for marking the study
  • Add a study alert
  • Hide update levels
  • Information about the study (go to a help file on the study)

The help files provide an explanation of the study, how traders use the study, and default parameters. Studies can be modified and the changes saved, but later, the default parameters can be reinstated.

CQG offers the ability to develop custom studies through the Formula Editor, and the study can then be added to the study list and toolbar for quick access.

CQG provides the trader with an easy-to-use interface and a no-compromise approach to technical analysis.
