cTrader Desktop 4.4 Unveils  Shared Account Access, Technical Analysis Features, and One-Click Functionality

cTrader Desktop 4.4 introduces shared account access and advanced technical analysis features, including an updated drawing toolbar and new Fibonacci Timezones to level up users’ trading experience.

Share access to your trading account

Users can now share, revoke, and waive access to their trading accounts with other traders. Access is limited to trading activities and does not include deposits and withdrawals on behalf of the account holder. Portfolio Managers and IBs can access and manage several shared accounts of different users. Shared Access is available in the Spotware Crossbroker App.

View the Expanded Trading Central in ASP

Short or Long-term forecasts. Users can get the enriched Trading Central window from the Active Symbol Panel with additional technical analysis data and trading ideas. A tutor at the users’ fingertips.

Place orders from the main toolbar

Any order - any time! The “New Order” button in the toolbar is always on display and allows users to place orders at any moment. Trading simplicity at its best.

Meet the Heikin Ashi Chart

A powerful addition to cTrader’s chart arsenal. The Heikin-Ashi calculation chart type uses a modified formula based on two-period averages, making the chart smoother and allowing for easier spotting of trends and reversals.

Estimate Results with the Updated Crosshair tool

Get a better estimate of your trades’ results with additional data through the Crosshair feature. Now traders can not only see Pips, Periods, and Price, but also Change and Gross P&L.


Open Drawing Menu with a Right-Click

Users can display all drawing modifying options for each drawing on the chart via a simple right-click on the Active Drawing.

Display Active Chart in Minimized View

Keeping track of charts is now as easy as minimizing the cTrader Desktop app with the brand-new “Always on Top” feature. Users are now able to minimize charts & enjoy other activities while staying tuned.

Get ahead with Fibonacci Timezones Drawing

A new Fibonacci Timezones drawing is now added to cTrader Desktop. Users can get ahead of potential reversals with Fibonacci Timezones and leverage their trading opportunities.

Display Custom Windows

Up until now, cBots and Custom Indicators could show detached windows with custom content. No special permissions or cross-threading are required for this feature. Detached windows have all the controls users may need inside the chart.

Send email Notifications via MailKit

Users can now set up and receive cBot and custom indicator emails via MailKit.


Use WebView control

Display third-party services inside cTrader and build custom UI using the full power of HTML+css. WebView is based on the latest Chromium version providing up-to-date support for modern web technologies.

Install cBots & Indicators in 1 click

Download cBots and indicators from ctrader.com and install them on the platform in a single  click!

Hi..nice update


I'd like to clarify one thing about Shared account....does the IB/Money manager still have access to history of his management of one's account even after the access is terminated in future? Just to have check his performance of the given account.

Just a little example on how to use the new Custom Window

        public ToggleButton ShowPanel;
        public Window W;

        protected override void Initialize()
             ShowPanel = new ToggleButton 
                Width = 60,
                Height = 25,
                Text = "Show",
                VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Top,
                HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left,
                Margin = "20 110 0 0",
                BackgroundColor = Color.FromHex("FFBF9100"),
                FontWeight = FontWeight.DemiBold

            ShowPanel.Checked += ShowPanel_Checked;
            ShowPanel.Unchecked += ShowPanel_Unchecked;
            W = new Window();
            W.Width = 600;
            W.Height = 400;
            W.MinWidth = 500;
            W.MinHeight = 300;
            W.MaxWidth = 700;
            W.MaxHeight = 500;
            W.ResizeMode = ResizeMode.CanResize;
            W.BackgroundColor = "FF013861";
            var wrapPanel = new WrapPanel();

            for (var i = 0; i < 10; i++)
                var button = new Button 
                    Text = "Click Me",
                    BackgroundColor = "#0E9247",
                    Margin = 5
            W.Child = wrapPanel;

        private void ShowPanel_Unchecked(ToggleButtonEventArgs obj)
            ShowPanel.Text = "Show";

        private void ShowPanel_Checked(ToggleButtonEventArgs obj)
            ShowPanel.Text = "Hide";
            W.WindowStartupLocation = WindowStartupLocation.CenterScreen;

I'm using latest version of Spotware cTrader, these references should not be missing.
Also, when I build with "Embedded" compiler, these errors are not shown, but it doesn't let me add any instance.

It would have been nice if Spotware finally paid some attention to the long-awaited non-time based backtesting and optimization. Although I can load the data into NinjaTrader via a NinjaTrader connector and test my cTrader algo there, I would prefer to do it directly on the cTrader itself.

In addition, it would be nice if the code of built-in indicators was made publicly available. That would boost the algo trading and tooling development on the cTrader. In some cases there are strange differences with the built-in indicators on other platforms such as NinjaTrader and MetaTrader4/5. That makes it more difficult for an algo trader/developer and financially less interesting to make the same tooling for cTrader.
