Market transparency is one driving force for electronically traded futures markets. CQG's DOMTrader provides the market transparency and order routing functionality traders need.
The DOMTrader displays key information to the trader. The inside market (best bid and best offered price) is displayed, along with the size of the bids and offers. In addition, depending on the exchange, a range of bids and offers is posted. The CQG DOMTrader has four tabs at the top of the window, providing access to four different markets for those trading more than just one market. CQG's order routing supports the standard market, limit and stop orders, as well as Order-Cancels-Order (OCO) orders, trailing stops, and trailing stop limit orders.

DOM Trader Benefits:
DOM Trader Features:
Instead of using the mouse to drag and drop the order into the buy or sell column, you can select the price and use the arrow keys to enter the order into the appropriate column.
Chained orders, such as a profit target order for a trade and a stop loss risk management order, can be placed using the OCO button. If one order is filled, then the other order is automatically canceled.
If an exchange does not accept stops or stop limit orders, the CQG Gateway can maintain and trigger them for you.
Any unfilled day orders are listed in the buy or sell columns until filled or canceled.
The look of the CQG DOMTrader is customizable. Eight different color themes for backgrounds and fonts are available. The CQG DOMTrader has buy and sell columns, a depth of market column, and a setting to have the last four trades marked next to the price by a marker that varies in size. The marker is the largest for the last trade and the smallest for the oldest trade back. The current and largest marker is an up triangle if the last trade was executed at the offer or a down triangle if the last trade was executed at the bid.
Choose to display the buy, sell at the market buttons, inside market buttons, quantity, and cancel order buttons. The cancel order buttons include canceling bids or offers, all orders posted, or liquidate all positions and cancel open orders.
In addition to setting other preferences for the CQG DOMTrader, traders can set the number of contracts for both new trades and maximum position under risk preferences.
Limits, stops, and the slippage factor for stop limit orders can be set under the preferences.
