CQG Releases Advanced Mobile Trading Tools

Available in CQG M, the on-the-go global market data, analytics, news, and electronic trading system.

Chicago and Denver, October 18, 2016 – CQG, a global provider of high-performance trade routing, reliable market data, and advanced technical analysis, announced today at FIA Chicago several enhancements to CQG M, its mobile product for on-the-go access to quotes, analytics, and trading.

The HTML5-based mobile platform has all of the data quality, coverage, and reliability that global traders have come to expect. The advanced trading features released today in an alpha version are:

  • An innovative technical analysis tool, the Volume Comparison Widget, which consolidates volume information and provides greater market transparency by employing several volume studies into a single infographic.
  • Order Study on Charts, which displays working orders on the chart. This has been a popular tool available in CQG’s flagship product, CQG Intergrated Client.
  • Trading Buttons on Charts, which allows customers to make trades using the HOT trading interface next to the chart.
  • Options days to expiration, which displays important expiration information directly on the screen.

“We continue to see customer excitement about our HTML5 platform. As we continue to collaborate with our customers, we’re able to rapidly iterate and innovate. For example, the Volume Comparison widget is an exciting development for CQG data visualization and technical analysis that we’ve not seen in the marketplace,” Marcus Kwan, Vice President of Product Strategy and Design, said.

CQG is also preparing for the release of CQG M for iOS early next year, followed by a version for Android devices. The new app version will have the same functionality as CQG’s HTML5 version of CQG M in mobile mode. The app will feature touch ID for fast, seamless login and push notifications for price and fill alerts. CQG M will be available in the app store for free with delayed data. CQG Integrated Client and CQG QTrader customers will have access to the full version of CQG M at no additional cost.

“We’ve learned a lot over the past couple of years with HTML5. Good architecture and design have enabled us to scale quickly to meet customer demand and build a platform for the future,” Kwan said. “We’re excited to launch the version of CQG M for iOS and Android,” Kwan said.

With CQG M available in the app store, the product will have evolved into a truly mobile version. The HTML5 version of CQG M, which is available on a desktop, will be rebranded as a desktop trading platform. Built on CQG’s cloud infrastructure and delivered as a browser-based platform, the HTML5 desktop product will continue to be a key area of focus for CQG development and will offer customers a flexible trading platform with all the core functionality of CQG’s other popular products.
