Level Up Your Trading Acumen with Two Powerful CQG Features

CQG Product Specialist Doug Janson covers two of the most underutilized features in CQG: DOM study values and Signal Evaluator.

DOM study values allow overlay study values to be placed into the DOM trading window for unique trade manipulation and execution scenarios. Janson covers the different order types available and setting the appropriate rounding parameters for the DOM study values.

The second half of the presentation explores the revamped Signal Evaluator. This module allows you to test buy and sell setups for their profitability over a future time horizon. It is a precursor to creating a trading system; however, many traders will find this is all they need in order to quantify their trading criteria.
