The CQG platform is in many ways a professional trading terminal for more advanced options and futures traders. It may, in other words, not be the right choice for brand new traders who just want to dip their toe into CFD trading. These traders may instead want to look into some of the web-based trading platforms that many CFD & forex brokers offer.
The CQG trading platform supports trading via several international options and futures exchanges. The platform is free as a basic web-based version, but is also available on a monthly subscription basis in more advanced versions. It is also worth noting that brokers offering CQG sometimes require a significant minimum deposit in order to use the platform. Because of the relatively high cost of trading with this platform, only a few brokers that are aimed at the retail market today offer the platform to their customers.
