What's New in CQG M Version 2.10

CQG M on Phones

  • Heatmap view for quotes: Experience dynamic real-time data visualization.


  • Custom time intervals: Enter custom intraday time intervals on charts.


  • Improved drag & drop HOT order placement: Click and drag to immediately place orders on HOT.
  • Limits above market: Place limit orders above market using either the trading buttons on HOT or drag & drop. There's a preference to configure how many ticks above market to force a limit order.
  • Liquidate/Cancel buttons on HOT: Configure HOT to show Liquidate and Cancel buttons for faster access. Turn these buttons on in the menu.
  • Smaller default HOT size: When adding a HOT to a page, it will not fill the screen.


  • More symbol lists: Additional symbol lists for commonly used strips and packs means you spend less time looking up symbols.
  • Preferences search: When you open preferences, start typing what you're looking for and the list is filtered automatically to show matching preferences.
  • Color settings for price movement: We've separated the configuration of buy/sell colors from price up/down colors so you can control them independently.
  • Updated styles: We believe that controls shouldn’t distract you from the task at hand, so we designed them to fade into the background when not in use. Market content should stand out above everything else, so we’ve increased the contrast. Design should support functionality. That’s why we’ve refined the look and feel of CQG M.

We welcome your feedback and input for what will continue to make CQG M an essential part of your trading workflow.
