As a Company Administrator, you can use the Data Uploads page to upload a Start-of-Day (SOD) position file in the CSV format.
When uploaded, the Setup app reads the values of the file and publishes the SOD position to the account listed in the file. SOD position files can be uploaded to parent, child, or shared accounts as long as they are owned by your Company.
To upload a Start-of-Day position file:
Click Choose file to browse to and select a file.
When this option is checked (enabled), Setup stops uploading data once it logs 20 errors. When it is unchecked, Setup stops logging errors after 20 errors, but continues to upload data. This option is unchecked (disabled) by default.
A record of the uploaded file and its status appears in the grid. Click the checkbox next to the record to review the Output section, which displays how many rows of the file are processed. Any errors that occur during the upload will appear in an Error section on this page.
Note: If there are multiple rows in the SOD file, the last row will overwrite the first.
Contract instrument IDs for each product can be found by accessing the market data explorer (New Limit screen) when adding user or account limits. The instrument ID needs to be entered in the Instrument column in the SOD position file.
To find the instrument ID:
When the instrument is selected, the instrument ID appears in the bottom left-corner of the New Limit screen.
Note: Deleting a Start-of-Day position record does not delete the uploaded Start-of-Day position. To remove a Start-of-Day position, either manually offset the position using the Monitor app, or upload a Start-of-Day file with a Quantity of 0.
To delete a Start-of-Day position upload record, click Data Uploads, click the checkbox next to the record and click Delete. The system will prompt you to confirm that you want to delete the record.
