Improvements

Order Entry

We have added two new checkbox settings to the global Preferences "Orders" page which are both off by default. The first is named "Reset to default upon submit". When enabled, upon entering an order, the currently selected order profile will reset to the "<Default>" profile, and order entry parameters such as order quantity, order type, time-in-force, etc. will reset to their default values. The secondary dependent checkbox is named "Retain order profile". Enabling this additional setting will keep the currently selected profile upon order submission and reset to the parameters defined for that profile.

Improvements

MD Trader

You can put MD Trader into "keyboard trading mode" with a new option on the MD Trader settings page. When in this mode, a pair of green and yellow boxes appear in the bid and ask cells. Hotkeys must also be enabled to utilize this mode. With focus on and enabled MD Trader, you can then press hotkeys to execute commands such as buy at the buy side marker, sell at the sell side marker, move the markers up or down, sweep up or down to a marker, delete orders at the markers, etc. Mouse click actions to cancel orders are still honored and executed while in this mode. However, when in this mode, left clicks on bid/ask cells away from the markers do not submit orders, but instead move the buy/sell marker to that price level. An order is submitted at that price level by pressing the assigned key for buy or sell, or by clicking again in the same cell. See the documentation for the full set of keyboard functions, or in the app go to Preferences > Hotkeys > MD Trader.

Improvements

MD Trader

As part of streamlining the placement of TT Stop and TT If Touched orders from MD Trader, a reduced 'slim' set of parameters is displayed on the order entry panel when these order types are selected. These parameters will NOT display if you left click on a custom action button or press a hotkey assigned to either of these order types AND that button or hotkey is also assigned to a template. In those cases, the slim parameters will not display and the parameters defined in the template will be used for the order. You can optionally display the slim set of parameters by right clicking on the button, or by pressing a different hotkey that is assigned without a template. You can also access the full set of parameters by clicking the "edit" button to display the flyout panel.

Improvements

RTD

Improvements

Excel Linking

We have aliased the download location of the TT Excel Add-in to be behind the trade.tt domain to simplify customer firewall rules. Note: A fresh install of the add-in is required to point to the new domain; existing installs will continue to receive updates as normal, but all new installs will go through the new ttw-excel.trade.tt.

04/02/2019

Improvements

Spread Matrix

You can now optionally configure Spread Matrix to display an MD Trader embedded in the lower left portion of the widget using the right-click "Show/Hide" menu. The MD Trader will seed with the instrument that you click on for order entry and helps make better use of the otherwise blank space within the matrix.
