01/17/2019

Improvements

Autotrader

As part of the transition to the new Autotrader widget, we have removed the ability to create new instances of the Autotrader (legacy) widget. However, Autotrader (legacy) widgets saved in workspaces will continue to function and display a reminder message to upgrade to the new Autotrader. You can convert a legacy Autotrader into a new Autotrader via right click menu option on a legacy Autotrader.

01/17/2019

Improvements

To more aggressively encourage users to upgrade to the new version of TT Desktop, upon logging in with the older version, the warning splash screen that has been appearing since Nov 20 last year has been removed.

You can now copy and paste static values from Excel cells into Autotrader cells. Multiple cells can be copied/pasted at the same time, as long as the rectangular range of cells is the same between Excel and Autotrader. Note that once pasted, these cells in Autotrader will not update, as this method is different than establishing linked cells from Excel into Autotrader.

01/11/2019

Improvements

Algo Dashboard

When running different algos, Algo Dashboard will now use the same column to display variables that have the same name, even though they are from different algos.

01/11/2019

Improvements

NOTE: This release includes XML schema changes for TT *Inbound* Drop Copy - No Customer Impact

In order to add support CME Drop Copy 4.0 in the TT Inbound Drop Copy service, tags 5024 and 5979 have been added to the TT XML schema Service as below:

<field number='5024' name='StartSequenceNumber' type='SEQNUM' />

These tags will not appear in any messages used by TT standard outbound drop copy service or any other customer-facing FIX interfaces.

No customer action is required regarding these tags.

01/03/2019

Improvements

Options

Advanced Options users will now see the implied volatility displayed in Strategy Creation for each leg of a strategy.

01/02/2019

Improvements

MD Trader

When an MD Trader custom action button is created for an algo but no template is assigned (meaning the algo will use the "<Default>" set of parameters established at design time), left click on the button will now display the flyout panel to expose access to the parameters. This behavior differs slightly from when a button is assigned to an algo and to a template. In that case, to support fast order entry, left click on the button will not display the flyout but will just seed the algo with the parameters defined in the template. Note that in either case, right click on a button will always display the flyout, regardless if a template has also been assigned to the button.

01/02/2019

Fixes

Strategy Creation

Fixed an issue which was preventing custom strategy templates from saving with the user's chosen name.

01/02/2019

Fixes

Strategy Creation

Strategy Creation now supports creation of non-standard strategy types at Eurex exchange.

01/02/2019

Improvements

MD Trader

You can now display the order quantity edit box control at the bottom of the MD Trader ladder. This control moves from the side order entry panel to the bottom as part of selecting the setting to display the order cancel buttons at the bottom. This allows you to hide the left side order entry panel to reduce screen space.

01/02/2019

Improvements

Autotrader

As part of the transition to the new Autotrader widget, we have renamed "Autotrader II" to "Autotrader" and have removed the ability to create new instances of the old Autotrader widget. However, old Autotrader widgets saved in workspaces will continue to function and have been renamed as "Autotrader (legacy)". Note that you can convert a legacy Autotrader into a new Autotrader via right click menu option on an old Autotrader.
