Improvements

General

The Audit Trail compliance reports that are generated and made available on the EFT server will have some additional columns added. The generic TT format (used for all exchanges except CME, CFE, NFX, and ICE) will have one new column, TT Current User ID. CME, CFE, NFX, and ICE will have two new columns: TT User ID and TT Current User ID.

The TT User ID is the TT platform user identifier. The TT Current User ID is similar, but may be populated if a user other than the originator of the order changes or deletes the order. These fields can assist with tracking user's order activity. The TT User ID for a user is viewable in TT Setup.

Full documentation on the Audit Trail compliance reports can be found at the link below.

08/11/2017

Improvements

Orders

Removed the "Estimated" text and the "E" from EPiQ, because with CME's "market by order" feed, the EPIQ on TT is no longer estimated; it is actual position in queue. Note that position in queue values are estimated on non-CME markets.

Added columns in Market Grid to view Position In Queue (PIQ).

Improvements

Options

TT has introduced a new Watchlist widget. Watchlist provides a single place to monitor instruments identified in other widgets, or strategies created by the user. Users will have the ability to build options strategies in the Strategy Creation widget and send them to the Watchlist to monitor theoretical values and Greeks, without the need to submit the strategy to the exchange in an RFQ. Instruments added to the Watchlist will persist over exchange sessions, and users will have the ability to act upon them at any time.

Setup App

As CME has decommissioned MSGW 62 (originally assigned to "CME FX Futures") and MSGW 66 (originally assigned to "CBOT Equity Futures"), these two MSGW channels will be removed from Setup. Connections that were assigned to these channels will be deleted August 4th. Please note that MSGW 60 has not been removed as CME has announced plans to recommission it October 29, 2017.
