Agricultural Spreading and Aggregation
Term structure traders can spread markets using CQG’s co-located servers. Compared to traders using client-side solutions, traders using the CQG Spreader have a tremendous advantage. You attain premium placement in the order queues for the working legs of spreads because the CQG Integrated Client trade routing interfaces connect to the exchange co-located CQG Spreader Core. Orders are configured on the CQG Integrated Client and then the servers use proprietary algorithms to manage the working legs of the order. Order modifications and execution of second legs occur in less than a millisecond due to the close proximity of the CQG Spreader Core to the exchange servers.

For example, this example is a scan of the stocks that are in the S&P 500 Index and the S&P 500 SPDR (Symbol: SPY) ETF looking for those stocks with rising moving averages and overbought or oversold conditions on two different time frames. This data can be exported to Microsoft Excel for further analysis.
CQG’s Portfolio Monitor can provide you with an instant view of the stock market. This example lists the symbols in the NASDAQ 100 Index and the PowerShares QQQ Trust (Symbol: QQQ) ETF.
The portfolio is dynamically ranked by percent net change so you easily see today’s top performers in the NASDAQ 100 Index. All of this data can be exported to Excel.

The chart is an overlay chart showing the intraday price action of all five stocks in a single chart.
All of CQG windows can be linked to each other. For example, you can link the Portfolio Monitor to a chart and to a trading interface. Selecting any symbol in the monitor will change the chart and trading interface to the same symbol.
