Date Type Component Release Note

10/29/2018

10/22/2018

Improvements

Fills

You can now copy selected fill rows from the Fills widget using a new "Copy" button for further pasting into external applications such as Excel. Unlike the right click menu "Export rows" feature, the pasted output of copied rows do not include a header row, but just includes the row data. Note that as part of this change, using Ctrl + C to copy row data from other grid widgets such as Order Book, Audit Trail will now also behave the same as the Fills widget and will not include a header row in the pasted output.

Fixes

Corrected an issue with tag 461, CFI code matching where the product type specified position 1 was not always interpreted correctly as a 'F'uture or 'M'ultileg product.

10/19/2018

Fixes

Orders

Fixed an issue for BrokerTec Iceberg orders where orders were partially canceled if the remaining quantity fell below the Iceberg's configured display quantity. Now TT will prevent changing the display quantity to a value greater than the remaining quantity. Additionally, as the remaining quantity is reduced below the original display quantity, TT will automatically reduce the display quantity accordingly.

10/19/2018

Improvements

Setup App

In addition to the current price reasonability setting that is enforced during matching states, Setup administrators can now enable price reasonability during non-matching states (e.g., pre-open). This option is available in Users-Limits and Accounts->Limits tabs.

Optimized FIX processing related to instrument lookups that could sometimes cause ocassional spikes in order latency.

Fixes

10/11/2018

Improvements

Order Entry

TT Stop order placement now considers the best bid/ask price when evaluating the proposed trigger price, allowing you to place TT stops at current bid/ask price levels when the last traded price (LTP) has not yet also moved along with the inside market. Previously only the last traded price (LTP) was considered. Native stops continue with the same logic as before and only consider the LTP in relation to the proposed trigger price.

10/11/2018

Improvements

Order Book

The Orders and Fills widget (OFW) now includes a new "view" column (containing "eyeball" toggle buttons) that is used to drive the data displayed in the bottom fills and positions panes. This change fundamentally separates the actions of "selecting" orders for order modification and/or cancel actions using the check box column and "viewing" filled and partially filled orders in the bottom two panes. Although native to the OFW, this column also becomes visible whenever the Order Book belongs to a group widget.

10/11/2018

Improvements

Positions

In the Positions widget, the "Account" and "Exch" column filter drop downs now show all accounts/exchanges the user has access to, not just the ones that currently have positions.

10/09/2018

Improvements

Spread Matrix

You can now launch the floating order book (FOB) on working orders in Spread Matrix.

10/04/2018

Improvements

Order Entry

Added a "Sell Market" hotkey to MD Trader (Shift + F12), and changed the TT default mappings for "Combo Join the Bid and Offer" and "Cancel working orders" and "Abandon OCO" to prevent possible conflicts.

10/02/2018

Improvements

MD Trader

You can now mark important price levels on the MD Trader ladder by holding down the Alt key while simultaneously left clicking on a price cell. Performing the same action again on the price cell will remove the coloring. The color can be customized in the MD Trader settings.
