Third Party Platforms at Tradovate

We think Tradovate’s cloud-based platform delivers the best value at the best price to active futures traders, taking out extra costs and putting the power to manage the trading experience at your fingertips while delivering top-notch execution and analysis tools. But, we understand that traders use other software for many different reasons, so we now deliver third party platforms to you the Tradovate way – with a ton of value!

At Tradovate, you have 2 choices on how you would like to use your favorite 3rd party platform:

  • Trade on Tradovate’s platform and add any available 3rd party software for analysis.  Using this setup you will not incur any additional CQG Order Routing Fees.
  • If you choose to trade through the 3rd party software, both the CQG Connection Fee and CQG Order Routing Fee will apply.

While using a 3rd party software at Tradovate, here are the additional benefits:

  • Market Replay.  You can continue to use Market replay inside Tradovate to simply watch the market action or actually trade tick-for-tick with full market depth in actual time or in fast-forward speed to see how the market traded on days when the market moved
  • Daily Loss Limits.  If you are trading through the Tradovate platform or through a 3rd party, you can set Daily Loss Limits for your account in Tradovate to help you manage your risk
  • Performance Reports. If you are trading through the Tradovate platform or through a 3rd party, you can see a comprehensive report of your trading statistics
