CQG 2022 Latest Features
The following features and enhancements are available in CQG Integrated Client (CQG IC) version 2022.
DOM Price Scale Custom Compression
For some symbols the price ladder can be compressed, which means that ticks can be viewed in a quantity different from the exchange value.
You can set the amount of the compression next to the compression button making screen real estate more efficient. For more information, please see the Help file.
UDS and Strategy Analysis Upgrade
The UDS functionality has been significantly updated with many more strategies and the ability to filter the Strategy Analysis window to list those suitable for trading at the CME, those suitable for trading at Eurex, Euronext, and the ICE exchanges, and those that are not tradable UDS symbols.
For more details, please read the Help file.
Net Change Curve Chart
The Net Change Curve chart displays a collection of symbols’ net price change or net percentage change making it easy to compare each market’s current sessions’ performance.
In addition, you can choose to set the net change curve chart to the current time and see the performance from that starting time.

Introducing "Trade Clear"
Previous versions of CQG IC and QTrader cleared daily market values, such as open, high, low, and close from quote displays and the daily value for a chart when a particular market closed and was in the pre-open state. Now, they are cleared at the “Trade Clear” - 15 minutes before the open of the first trading session (generally, in the evening). This change applies to a limited set of commodities including ZSE, ZWA, ZLE, ZME, HE, GLE.

Update to UDS Functionality

For all of the details, please read the Help file.
Bachelier Options Model
