One feature that is a 'must have' for the 7 version is the Bid/Ask being visible on the Chart Trading Window.
For those who, like me, use an external data feed service (eSignal), to know the bid and ask price from the broker before giving an order is of the utmost importance.
So my idea is to have the bid/ask information from the broker, being displayed on the Chart Trading Window. One of the places would be just below the PnL information.
Please see image attached.

Not only Bid and Ask are important before a trade but also BidSize and AskSize as the market liquidity has much influence on the trade transaction result especially when using market orders and when the trade volume is more than just one contract.
Furthermore it woulld be of much value to have the option to display depth of market (DOM) on the bottom of the chart trader panel. On a Full HD display with one chart on a screen there is enough space left on the chart trader panel to display DOM and to have the possibility to enter orders through the DOM on that panel. Using a separate DOM window may hide important parts of the chart on the screen.
