Unlike most other trading platforms offered by forex brokers here on our site, the CQG platform is designed mainly for futures and options trading on a more professional level. The platform is therefore not commonly offered by retail-focused forex & CFD brokers, which is also the reason why so few brokers that are regulated by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have made it available to their clients.
Most brokers that offer the CQG platform offer it in a free basic web-based version, in addition to a paid version for traders who needs more advanced functionality. One thing to note, however, is that some brokers restrict access to the CQG platform to only their biggest and best clients. Because of that, anyone interested in trading with the platform should be prepared to deposit a significant amount of money in their trading account.
