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.

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.

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.

10/01/2018

Improvements

Autotrader

We have added a new "Autotrader II" widget that provides a redesigned layout for launching and managing algo orders. The new widget is available in parallel with the existing Autotrader widget for ease of transition to the new version, and will eventually replace the existing Autotrader.

Some key features of the new version include:
- improved editing of values, including mass editing and copy/paste
- column sorting
- ability to "pin" rows so they remain in the view once the algo is completed
- auto-creating tabs to display algos launched outside of Autotrader
- ability to 'convert' existing Autotraders to the new AT II via a right click menu item.

The toolbar introduces a "Stop" button, which differs from the existing "Pause" action as follows:
- Stop cancels the algo and deletes all child orders with "Leave Order On Cancel" = False
- Pause suspends the algo’s execution and then deletes all child orders with "Leave Order On Pause" = False.

Note: The new version does not yet support Excel linking, which will be added soon.

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.
