Product Review: CQG for Windows, Version 1.487
CQG once stood for Commodity Quote Graphics, but as is the norm with companies wanting to keep pace in this competitive world, CQG has evolved from focusing on providing just commodity traders with top-of-the-line computer graphics to a first-class, full-service technical package and data vendor for both domestic equity and domestic/foreign futures market traders.
CQG was started as a personal research project back in 1980 by company president Tim Mather, with the goal of linking price quotations to a personal computer to automatically chart short-term price movements. The initial project was successful enough to warrant a stronger commitment, and in 1981, a basic system was up and running for the first 20 customers. Since then, CQG has progressed from using a dedicated Epson computer for their popular TQ 20/20 system, first introduced in 1983, to today's CQG for Windows system. Their current package provides traders with real-time data and graphics display on virtually every domestic and international futures markets, as well as 1,500 optionable stocks traded on US exchanges. Today, CQG has offices in Chicago, New York, London, Paris and Frankfurt in addition to their headquarters in Glenwood Springs, CO.
