On the Positions screen, you can filter by Account or User. When filtering by User, you can view aggregate positions. When filtering by Account, you can view positions for parent accounts and corresponding child (sub) accounts. The parent accounts display the aggregate of positions and P&L of all child accounts. If a parent account is not routed to the exchange, it'll appear in the Positions section but all fields will be blank. In this case, the corresponding child accounts will be displayed.
All other users can use the Risk Monitor Positions tab to view and monitor P/L and check positions, but they must be explicitly configured to update positions, per account, in order to offset positions or create manual fills.
As a company administrator, you can use the Risk Monitor Positions tab to do the following per account or user:
For the current trading session, select the Risk Monitor app to view P&L for all accounts used during the session, as well as all users who have submitted trades during the current session.
Note: The Positions widget in the Trade app shows P&L per account for all trading sessions. Risk Monitor shows open positions and P&L for only the current trading session.
To monitor P&L and check positions...
After filtering, you can search for an account or username.
Click Refresh to update positions based on current trading activity.
Offsetting a position creates a new fill record that neutralizes (Buy against Sell or Sell against Buy) the selected position for an account or user. For example, if you select a 5-lot Buy, the offsetting manual fill will be a 5-lot Sell for the same trader and on the same contract. Fields other than B/S (Buy/Sell) are identical between the original fill and the offsetting fill. Like manual fills, you must publish offsetting manual fills.
To offset a position...
The Manual Fills screen appears.
The fill appears in the Pending Manual Fills section.
The updated position and P&L are reflected in the Positions screen for the account/user.
A manual fill record is a trader’s open position from another source. Like Start of Day records, manual fills allow administrators to more accurately manage their traders’ overall position. On the Positions screen, you can right-click an account or user, market, product, or contract to open the Manual Fills screen to create and offset manual fill records.
Note: You can not modify a published manual fill, but you can create a new manual fill to offset the one you published previously. You can only modify manual fill data prior to publishing.
A Start of Day record (SOD) is the summary of the net position that a user had on a specific contract during the previous trading session. On the Positions screen, you can filter by account or user and right-click a contract to select Modify SOD and open the Start-of-Day Position Record screen to
modify SOD records.
