CQG Integrated Client Latest Features
Our flagship product continues to evolve, remaining top in the industry for charting, analytics, and trading.

Hedge Management Using Care Orders

Hedge management has been made simple with care orders in CQG.

With centralized hedge management for brokers managing multiple customer accounts, care orders are a flexible way to manage customer trades within CQG:

  • Receive a customer order and hold as parked
  • Allocate portions of the order internally and report back fills
  • Assign fills from orders working at the exchange

Give your customers excellent service with better centralized hedge management from a single provider.

Care Orders


CQG supports RFQ in CQG Integrated Client, CQG QTrader, and the Client APIs. RFQ functionality allows you to request a quote directly from participating exchanges to assess the market and manage risk prior to placing a trade.

API applications can benefit from decreased leg risk on potentially illiquid instruments and pursue the strategies prescribed by your model, unconstrained by the exchange-listed options markets.


Net Change Chart

CQG's new Net Change chart offers analysis of daily volatility. With the chart, you can:

  • Combine multiple Net Change charts using Chart Analog Overlay to visualize movement
  • Change the price scale settings to the same scale for a comparison of like contracts
  • Adjust the color for each instrument for better visualization


Example: This chart shows how Net Change can be used to analyze one Treasury contract out-pacing another. This type of net change analysis may provide insight into buying or selling opportunities. In this example, there is a clear sell-off occurring in Treasury futures and the movement in the underlying instruments correlates with the Net Change chart of the FYT (ratio spread) moving higher.

Batch Order Entry

In an effort to support our customers across all CQG products, we have added Batch Order Entry to CQG QTrader and CQG Integrated Client. Customers can create a list of orders in a plain text file and import the list to CQG to execute a large batch of orders all at once.

Enhanced Sorting and Filtering on Orders and Positions

CQG makes it easier to manage orders and positions for multiple accounts by customer account number or sales series. Use our Microsoft Excel® style filtering to search for an order number or portion of an order number using our smart search filter. Sort positions by account or filter by account/sales series to easily monitor your customers' positions.

Modification of Parked Orders Prior to Activation

Easily modify your parked orders before activation without the need to cancel and replace them. Customers can modify the order quantity and price from the Parked tab on the Order Ticket or in the Orders and Positions window.

Enhancements for Fixed Income and Spread Trading

For fixed income traders who are trading spreads in yield based on gross basis and the conversion factor, we have added ConvFactor2 to our list of functions in QFormulas. ConvFactor2 used in a spread formula will compute an accurate yield value for the spread. Additionally, we have added the KCG Acknowledge exchange-listed spread symbols to the tradable products on CQG. For more information on KCG-listed instruments, visit https://www.virtu.com/market-making/customliq/vfi/.

Mark Fisher Chart (MBF Chart)

Mark B. Fisher, founder and CEO of MBF Clearing Corp, is one of the industry's leading traders and technical analysts.

CQG is excited to offer, in conjunction with Mark Fisher, the MBF Chart. MBF Charts incorporate Renko-style bricks on a time chart to enhance the interpretation of Fisher's ACD trading methodology of price levels for trading and pivot ranges. The Fisher Bars display the total volume of each brick and the volume traded outside the brick during the same time period.

Watch Mark Fisher explain the new chart and how he uses it in this recorded webinar.
