Getting CQG Custom Algo SDK Image

Request Access

To start using CQG Custom Algo SDK you will need to request access to the CQG Docker Hub from CQG APIHelp Desk. Please email and we will provide the credentials as well as the Docker hub details.


Import the Custom Algo SDK image (algo_centos8_sdk) into Docker using the docker pull command.

 docker login (use supplied credentials here)
docker pull
docker tag algo_centos8_sdk
If you see this error, Docker Desktop is not running:

error during connect: Get http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.40/images/json: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified. In the default daemon configuration on Windows, the docker client must be run elevated to connect. This error may also indicate that docker daemon is not running.

Confirm that the import was successful by running docker images. It should have the new image listed:

c:\cqg> docker images
REPOSITORY                          			TAG            IMAGE ID                     CREATED               SIZE

                                    latest         e2be89436e73        4 hours ago         3.89GB


To get a new image of CQG Custom Algo SDK, please contact API Help to receive access credentials and Docker Hub details. Use docker pull algo_centos8_sdk to overwrite the old image.

If you want to preserve the old image, go back to it and run docker tag algo_centos8_sdk algo_centos8_sdk:your_custom_tag before loading the new SDK image.

Command Line

To re-build from the command line, run docker ps -a and find the line with the algo_centos8_sdk image.
