Dear Trader,

We are happy to inform you that cTrader Desktop 3.6 has now been released. 

Aside from a series of bug fixes, as well as performance and user experience improvements, it further comes with an out-of the-box, Automate API user interface customization solution, aimed to deliver even more personalization to your trading experience.

Custom UI on Charts with Automate API

One can now add custom UI elements and modify chart controls in Automate API for cBots and indicators. Available panels with different layouts and controls feature a variety of options, such as buttons, text boxes, check boxes, images, shape objects, and more. All UI elements further support styling and automatic color changes when a user switches between dark and light color themes on their cTrader platform. 

To demonstrate the usage of custom UI elements, we have further added a cBot sample - Sample Trading Panel, which lets users observe an operational example of the platform’s new feature.

Other Automate API improvements include cTID info, color theme, user time offset and cTrader application version.

cBots Auto restart

The new cTrader Desktop release also includes one of the ‘must-have’ features that traders voted for on the cTrader community forum. The user-elected cBots Auto Restart option ensures that created bots restart automatically upon platform launch.

cTrader Startup Modes

Multiple startup modes now include single instance, multiple instance and multiple profile options.

Active Symbol Panel Modifications

Depth of Market has been added to the Active Symbol Panel for further convenience, and the Active Symbol Change setting has been activated.

Visual Studio 2019 Support

Last but not least, the new cTrader Desktop 3.6 version features full support of Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 for maximum developer flexibility.

cTrader Desktop 3.6 will be released to all brokers in the nearest future. In the meantime, you can try all the new features out on Beta.

Hi,

the new version is highly unstable and eating around 1.3 GB Memory and upto 40% of CPU time (it fluctuates a lot)....   ver 3.5 was ok and more stable.  Have attached the screen shot of the cTrader ver 3.6 from TradersWay compared to ver 3.5 from IC Market and FxPro and you can see how much memory and CPU % each is using....

 

only one chart is opened on TradersWay cTrader Platform ver 3.5 while FxPRo and IC Markets have many charts and indicators attached. Have un-installed and re-installed the TradersWay cTrader ver 3.6 platform also but no improvement...  right now the market is very calm but still it is highly CPU hungry....

I am using core i7 4th gen CPU with 16GB mem and a SSD hard drive.  

 

hope Spotware fixes this issue before more Broker release this version or if Spotware and others can attach a screen shot of the memory usage from different brokers and maybe something is wrong at TradersWay Brokers cTrader platform...

 

Regards,

SKhan

I havn't encountered any problems with the update. I'm using ctrader 3.6 from Tradeview, running it on a 4 vCPU 16GB RAM 40GBSSD hard drive in a VPS. I've got icmarkets ctrader 3.5 on the same VPS. Both running smooyhly.

On windows 10 desktop

Hi Panagiotis,

have copied the this link and submitted my request by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Shift+T......      this time I opened more Charts on this ver 3.6 and the memory usage has crossed nearly 2gb at times and using 31% of CPU alone, while the total CPU usage is 45%....    so you can imagine how much load it is putting on the CPU and the cores run hot...    Its Friday night and no news or volatility going at the moment but the cTRADER is not responsive and very slow in switching between charts....

also, after  a while I got an error message also which I have taken the screen shot and pasted here...

Thank you

SKhan

Hi,

I just deleted the settings file "Default" and restarted the Broker's cTrader (Trader's Way) and it is working fine and I don't see lot of memory being occupied.. . its under 700 MB and the CPU usage is drastically reduced to under 5% when no volatility....

maybe, deleting this file was the trick....   maybe, a simple button in the cTRADER platform where user can delete these type of files and restart the Platform to see if the performance and freezing issue is resolved.....

 

Thank you
