03/12/2019

Improvements

Autotrader

We have completed the transition to the new Autotrader widget that began in November 2018 with the introduction of a new Autotrader widget. In January 2019 we prevented the ability to create new instances of the Autotrader (legacy) widget. Since that time, Autotrader (legacy) widgets saved in workspaces continued to function and displayed a reminder message to upgrade to the new Autotrader. Now, all Autotrader (legacy) widgets have been auto-converted to new Autotrader widgets along with their Excel links.

Excel Linking

Improved the performance of Excel links into Autotrader with a new release of the TT Excel add-in. This release also includes a fix for linked values sometimes being presented with incorrect extra precision.

03/11/2019

Improvements

Order Book

The Order Book and Orders and Fills widget (OFW) now have optional columns to display Bid. Ask, LTP and 'Ticks in Front'. The Ticks in Front value is the number of ticks between the price of the order and the inside market. For example, a buy order working one tick below the bid will display 1; a sell order working at the best ask price will display 0.

03/08/2019

Improvements

FIX Services

Tag 57, TargetSubID, is an optional tag that may be included by FIX Clients in the Logon (35=A) message header.

Beginning with this FIX release, if and only if the Logon message coming from the FIX client to TT contains tag 57, the client admin *must* configure the tag 57 value in the Target Sub ID field for that specific FIX Session configuration dialog in setup.

if the Logon message coming from the FIX client to TT does *not* contain tag 57, no action is required.

This change is applicable to all TT FIX Session Types in Setup.

03/08/2019

FIX Services

Added LastMkt (tag 30) to replace tag 100 on FIX 4.4 TradeCaptureReports. No change in behavior for FIX 4.2.

NOTE: tag 30 has been added to the TT XML schema, but will only be sent on FIX 4.4 sessions.

03/06/2019

Improvements

Order Entry

The order confirmation screen for trigger orders such as TT Stop and TT If Touched now displays payup prices based on values other than Trigger, e.g., LTP, Bid, or Ask, as relative price string, e.g., "LTP + 1" or "Bid + 0".

03/01/2019

Improvements
