Number Block

The Number Block outputs a constant numeric value set by the user (set by double-clicking on the block). The value of the block can be set as follows:

  • Static value that is set during algo creation and does not change for the duration of the algorithm's execution
  • User-defined value that can be set by the user when starting the algorithm
  • Order price value that gets its values from the price level a user clicks in the MD Trader widget when launching a OTA (order ticket algorithm)
  • Order quantity value that gets its value from the quantity specified in the MD Trader widget when launching a OTA (order ticket algorithm)
