FIX Services

FIX Order Routing and Drop Copy session configuration in TT Setup has added a dropdown setting named: "Set Security ID Source (22) on Outbound Messages". Valid values include: "TT Instrument ID", "ISIN Number", "RIC Code", "Exchange Security ID", "Exchange Ticker", "Alias", "Name", "Bloomberg Code - requires company level setting", "OpenFIGI ID - requires company level setting".

The default selection is "TT Instrument ID", which is historically the value that TT provided in Tag 48 on Execution Reports and Cancel/Rejects.

NOTE: Customers should be aware that even when the Default value is still selected, tag 22=96 will be included on Execution Reports and Cancel/Rejects going forward, so that the Security ID Source for tag 48 is always explicitly stated.
