Algo Strategies

CQG has partnered with several brokers to integrate their popular algorithmic strategies into CQG IC and CQG QTrader: Lime Brokerage, Quantitative Brokers, RCM-X, and BAML.

Leverage these strategies to enhance your trading without the need for custom development. Coupled with CQG’s Algo Analytics, including TCA reports, you can try various strategies and measure performance for better execution.

*BAML algos are not multi-broker, they are for BAML customers only.

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.


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.

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.
