Adding a Euronext account

To add a Euronext account:

  1. Click Accounts in the left navigation pane.
  2. Click +New Account at the top of the Accounts screen.

    The Account Information section is displayed.

  3. In the Account Name/Number field when creating an account, enter the up to 10-character exchange-provided account name, which is required for order routing. For an internal sub-account, enter the up to 10-character exchange-provided account name. The user's routing/clearing account is sent to the exchange as Tag 440. If the user has an internal sub-account mapped to a routing/clearing parent account, the sub-account is routed to the exchange as Tag 1 and the parent account is sent as Tag 440.

  4. If this is a sub-account, select a "parent" account in the Parent field.
  5. Click the Type field and select an account type.

    Use this field to define the routing behavior for the account and set up its account hierarchy for tiered risk. All order routing is based on user account. Select one of the following:

    • Routing (external clearing): Defines the parent account as a clearing account sent to the exchange on all orders. If assigned to a user, the account appears in the user's list of routable accounts. When selected by a user, the account is used to route orders and identify the account to the exchange (e.g, FIX Tag 1). If configuring this account as an omnibus account, select this option. If an internal sub-account is assigned to a parent account, the sub-account inherits the exchange connectivity of the parent account.

    • Routing (internal sub-account): Defines the account as a sub-account that is not routed to the exchange. This allows you to assign the user to an internal account for routing and risk purposes, even though a parent account will be sent to the exchange as the actual clearing or omnibus account.

      Tip: Sub-accounts set as "Routing (internal sub-account)" can be selected by client trading applications for submitting orders, but only their parent account's clearing account is routed to the exchange.

    • Non-Routing: Not sent to the exchange. Recorded internally and can be used for back-office purposes, or as a parent risk account that allows you to group a set of sub-accounts together and set risk for the non-routing parent.

      Tip: Accounts set as "Non-Routing" are not selectable by client trading applications.

  6. To prevent order crossing using this account or any of its sub-accounts, click the Order Cross Prevention field and select an order crossing rule. The TT Trade application performs the following order actions based on which rule is selected:
    • Not Applied — No order cross prevention rule is applied to the account.
    • Reject New — Reject a new order that could potentially fill resting orders in the same account or account tree. Applies to only Limit orders and native Iceberg orders.
    • Cancel Resting (wait for ACK) — Send a cancel request to the exchange for the resting order. When the exchange acknowledges the request and cancels the order, submit the new order. Applies to only Limit orders and native Iceberg orders.
    • Position Transfer — When a match is detected, the resting order is canceled or the working order quantity is reduced by the size of the aggressive order. A fill is created by TT and sent to each account. If the aggressive order was larger than the resting order, then the remainder of it will be sent to market. For a description of how Position Transfer works, refer to Position Transfer.

    • Position Transfer (if resting order is best bid/offer) — This rule works the same as Position Transfer except that the internal matching occurs only if an order has the potential to fill a resting order at the current best bid/ask price.

      Note: When using this rule, the resting order may get matched and filled at the exchange while the aggressive order is in flight.

  7. Optionally, check one of the following options:
    • Use Reject New instead of Position Transfer within the same account — When enabled, this setting prevents the use of position transfer within the same account and uses "Reject New" for order cross prevention. This setting is active when "Position Transfer" is selected for the account, otherwise, it is grayed-out.
    • Go to market with Position Transfer balances w/o waiting for Cancel/Reducing ACK — When enabled, Position Transfer does the following if the aggressive order quantity is larger than the resting order quantity:

      • Reduces the aggressive order quantity by the amount of the resting order
      • Submits a request to the exchange to cancel the resting order, followed immediately by an order for the remaining quantity without waiting for acknowledgement that the resting order was canceled or reduced.

      For example, if a 2-lot Sell order is resting when a 10-lot Buy order is entered that matches, Position Transfer immediately sends a cancel request to the exchange for the Sell order, followed by an 8-lot Buy order. Position Transfer then waits for the exchange to acknowledge that the 2-lot Sell order was canceled successfully. After receiving acknowledgement, the 2-lot fills are created internally and transferred to each trader's account.

      Using this option, you can submit part of the order to the market sooner while the remainder of the order waits to be transfered. You can also reduce the risk of the entire aggressive order being rejected while waiting for the position transfer to complete.

      Note: With this option, there's a risk that the crossing orders may match at the exchange if the two traders are using separate exchange connections on two different order routing servers.

    • Disable trading (this account only) — Disables trading for this account. This checkbox is checked by default.
    • Disable trading (sub-accounts) — Disables trading for all child accounts of this parent account.
    • Disable trading (autoliquidate) — Checked automatically after auto-liquidate is triggered on an account. Increase the credit limit and uncheck this option to restore trading to a liquidated account. This setting can only be checked by the Setup application when an account is liquidated (i.e., you cannot manually check this setting).
  8. Click Create.

    The new account appears in the Accounts list in the left navigation pane. Sub-accounts appear as nested under their parent account.
