Microsoft Excel®, RTD, and COT Data

Mar 12, 2020
CQG has added the CFTC Commitment of Traders data to the data feed. You can read about working with COT symbols here. If you are interested in pulling the latest COT updates and historical data using RTD formulas there are a couple of things to know. The data is published by the CFTC late Friday afternoon with a report date of the previous Tuesday (unless there is a holiday). Therefore, this data is weekly data. You cannot see it in a CQG Quote Spreadsheet as the Quote Spreadsheet displays only today and yesterday’s data. RTD formulas that pull data that we see in the Quote Spreadsheet... more

2020 Update: 6 Trading Systems Based on the Super Template

Mar 10, 2020
This is an update to the 6 trading systems published about one year ago. On customer request, we added the ability to set a start and end time as well as an exit based on time. The idea is to have a few standard trading systems that have many customizable exits already built in: EOD - End Of Day will exit any position at the last bar of the day when checked. MMstop - Money Management is a simple stop loss. You just need to specify the amount. MM - Money Management Stop is on if checked. BEFloor - Break Even Exit will close the position when it returns to its entry price. It... more
