Excel At Using Excel With CQG

CQG offers two new studies and one new chart type for customers developing models, analytics, and utilizing other Excel features. These three new features provide a seamless connection between Excel and CQG. Whatever models you have built with Excel you can easily pull into CQG current real-time values, as well as a time series, and you can chart in CQG proprietary market data.

The chart example is using the XLTS study. The CFTC Commitment of Traders data (Large Net Speculators, Net Commercials, and Net Small Speculators) for the gold market is maintained in an Excel spreadsheet and is displayed on the chart using the XLTS study.

Also available in CQG QTrader for an additional fee.

Upgrades to the Moving Average Study

CQG’s popular moving average study provides you with more flexibility with the addition of three new moving average types: The Median, Trix (triple exponential smoothing) and the Exponential Hull Moving Average.

These additional average calculations are also available as parameters for studies that use a smoothing parameter, such as the Average True Range study.

Know Your Place with the Estimated Place in the Queue

CQG offers an estimate of where your order is in the queue of the Exchange’s order book. On the DOM ladder over the total working volume at the price of your order are the number of orders ahead of your order and the number of contracts ahead of your order giving you a sense of your chances to be filled.

New and Improved: Imbalance Delta Bar (IDB)

CQG offers a new chart type called the Imbalance Delta Bar chart. This chart type is similar to the Delta Bar chart except what you enter in the buy side has to be x% greater than the sell side (and vice versa) to indicate an imbalance. This can give you more insight into whether the buyers or the sellers are winning. In addition, the popular Footprint study can be applied to the Imbalance Delta Bar Chart.
