For the following options , TT was referring to the wrong underlying instrument . This has been fixed now
OGBS
OGBM
OGBL

For e.g. , in Apr , the calendar months will be Apr , May and Jun , and quarterly months will be Sep , Dec and Mar .

The future underlying for calendar months should be the upcoming quarter month , while the future underlying for quarterly months should be the same quarter .

Improvements

Orders

Support of iLink 3.0 for the TT CME Convenience Gateway has now been deployed for customer use. In the same way as the MSGW iLink3 upgrade of 2019, this new Convenience Gateway version supports the CME “On Demand” order entry method only.

Please note that existing CGW Connections will not work as-is. In order to use the CME upgrade, New Connections must be created (A) using a Session ID that was created by CME specifically for iLink3, and (B) using Type = “Convenience Gateway iLink3” in TT Setup.

Aside from the changes to Connections, the order routing functionality of TT CGW iLink3 is identical to TT MSGW iLink3. All existing FIX configurations, Order Tag Defaults, etc. will continue to function as expected.

Fixes

General

There are two changes in the columns for exchange compliance files for ICE.

- The column 144 (right)/On Behalf Of Location ID/Authorized Group ID is now located in the correct position as required by ICE's Audit Trail Specification (https://www.ice.com/publicdocs/futures_us/exchange_notices/ICE_Futures_US_AuditTrailAdvisory_20220728.pdf). This column and data has been included but it was positioned as an additional column not required by ICE.

- The description of the column 115 (right)/OnBehalfOfCompID/Authorized Trader ID was incorrect and has been changed from "Authorized Member ID" to "Authorized Trader ID".

The link in the Exchange Compliance documentation (https://library.tradingtechnologies.com/audit.html) to ICE's audit trail requirements has also been updated to point to their most recent update.

05/17/2024

Fixes

Orders

Fixed an issue in the floating order book (aka FOB) where modifying the WrkQty on a CME native Iceberg order incorrectly changed the OrdQty instead. Now the FOB prevents editing the WrkQty on native CME Icebergs while supporting edits to the OrdQty field. This change is due to CME specific exchange behavior, and the WrkQty field is editable on native Icebergs on other exchanges.

(Ref 165872)

05/17/2024

Improvements

(Ref 165865)

05/17/2024

Improvements

Orders

We have enhanced our current OMS spread stitching functionality to automatically create a remainder "tail" order when the spread leg quantities do not exactly match. Currently, the constituent orders must have the same order quantities in order to stitch them into an exchange listed spread, oftentimes requiring multiple steps for the user to split one of the care orders manually, and adjust the quantity of the split order to match the quantity of the order to be stitched with. Now, our auto-stitch with tail feature will allow any excess quantity to be traded separately as an outright once the stitch is created.

(Ref 165862)

05/17/2024

Improvements

Orders

We have extended our current OMS order passing ability to now include the ability to pass staged orders. As a reminder, order passing provides an extra level of order visibility separate from the visibility achieved from sharing an account.

Improvements

Order Book

The Order Book now provides a new "Edit order..." right-click context menu on working order rows. This menu item launches a floating order ticket with a single green "Change" button. This feature can be invoked on multiple orders, allowing you to queue up edits for several orders and then individually submit them when desired.

Fixes

Exchanges

All the EEX Instruments ( Spot and Derivatives ) were assigned the Derivative exchange in PDS . Due to this , just by subscribing for EEX Derivative instruments in TTUS , users could view both EEX SPOT and derivative products . This has now been corrected . If users want to view EEX SPOT products on TTW , they need to subscribe to EEX SPOT products in TTUS .

FIX Services

For customers whose FIX engine natively supports SSL encryption, or who have implemented FIX session encryption using STunnel with certificate pinning, TT provides a TTFIX.crt file with the public certificates used by the TT platform FIX endpoint. These certificates expire on an annual basis and must periodically be refreshed to continue functioning.

On April 26, 2024, TT updated the stunnel.zip file located in the Download Center in order to update the soon-to-be-expired certs in the TTFIX.crt bundle.

All TT customers who use STunnel must download the new zip file and apply it at any time before the new zip file update is applied in each TT environment, which will be:
>> May 1, 2024 for UAT
>> May 10, 2024 for SIM
>> May 17, 2024 for Production - New York
>> May 31, 2024 for Production - All other locations

Customers still using the old stunnel.zip file after the dates listed above will not be able to connect to the respective TT environments.

Added TT Platform STAR.TRADE.TT; valid from 2024/04/01- 2025/03/31 (DC)

Additional Resources:
