Staged order permissions

The following staged order permissions are set when assigning an account to a user, or assigning a user to an account.

  • Submit Staged Orders — When this option is checked, it allows the user to place a staged order into the selected account and sub-accounts.

    A user can view their own staged orders. As the staged order is filled, the user receives fills in the staged order's original account, even if the child orders for the parent staged order are executed in different accounts by the owner who claimed the staged order. Risk limits are applied to the user and user's account that submitted the staged order.

  • Manage Own Staged Orders — When this option is checked, it allows the user to manage (i.e., claim/unclaim and potentially execute on-behalf-of) their own staged orders that were submitted into the selected account and sub-accounts.

    In order to view an inbound staged order, potential owners must have this option set and have access to the staged order account. All orders in the account, both staged and non-staged orders, are viewable by all users assigned to the account.

    When unchecked, this option prevents a user from claiming his own staged orders.

    Uncheck this setting and check Manage Orders Staged by Others to allow users to only manage orders staged by others.

    Note: To set this option, the Submit Staged Orders option must be checked.

  • Manage Orders Staged by Others — Allows the user to manage (i.e., claim/unclaim and potentially execute on-behalf-of) any staged orders submitted into the selected account and sub-accounts that he did not submit. If Submit Staged Orders and Manage Own Staged Orders are also checked, then the user can also manage his own submitted staged orders.

    In order to view a staged order, potential owners (i.e, users that claim staged orders) must have this option set and have access to the staged order account. All orders in the account, both staged and non-staged orders, are viewable by all users assigned to the account.

    If you want to restrict which contracts a user can submit as staged orders, the risk limits should be set on the user, the user's account, or the user's parent account.

    If position transfer is enabled on a parent or child account with a claimed staged order, then the owner (user who claimed the staged order) can manually choose to do a position transfer with his own account and the staged order account if they are both in the same position transfer-enabled account hierarchy. This creates two opposing manual fills that leaves the originator (user who submitted the staged order) with the position he wants and the owner with an opposing position.

    When the owner executes on behalf of a staged order, all of the limits on the owner’s execution accounts that were used for the child orders, and any parent accounts of those execution accounts, are applied. The originating user's limits are not applied at this time, as the originator’s limits have already been checked when the order was staged.

    Note: To set this option, the Submit Staged Orders option must be checked.
