CQG Spreader

The CQG Spreader is a tool for spread traders needing sophisticated order management and ultra low-latency trade execution. The CQG Spreader allows traders to easily create, trade, and manage multi-legged, intermarket, intramarket, and cross-exchange spreads and to effectively manage incomplete orders. Traders can manage spreads across accounts and asset classes.

The CQG Spreader Core (collocated servers at the exchanges) uses proprietary algorithmic rules to manage working legs of the spread. Bid/ask queues per leg in the exchange’s order book are monitored by the spread servers for liquidity. The close proximity of the core to the exchange servers allows modification and execution of second legs to occur in less than a millisecond.

CQG Spreader functionality includes:

  • Set up spreads with up to forty legs and actively quote up to ten legs
  • Configure leg ratios, scale, order management, and legging risk
  • Prioritize leg placement
  • Easily identify spreads and their legs with DOMTrader® and order color-coding
