Working orders can be modified or canceled in MD Trader. You can modify a working order by moving it to a different
price level with an easy drag-and-drop action, or by clicking on it in the working orders column and launching a
Floating Order Book. Orders can be canceled by clicking on the orders in the working orders column or by using the
cancel buttons in the Order Pane.
Modifying an order with drag and drop
To modify an order with drag and drop:
At a specific price level, click and hold the right mouse button in a cell in the Work column that corresponds to the price of the working orders.
Drag the orders to the desired price and release the right mouse button. This action will modify the price of all orders at that price level.
Launching a Floating Order Book in MD Trader
To launch a Floating Order Book in MD Trader:
Middle-click a working order cell in MD Trader.
The Floating Order Book opens seeded with the order details.
In the Floating Order Book, you can change the WrkQty (working quantity), Price, or TrgPrc (trigger price). You can also click the Cxl icon to cancel the order, or click the Algo icon to launch an algo to manage the order.
Reducing the total quantity of multiple orders at a price level
If you have multiple orders working at the same price level, you can quickly reduce the total quantity of the these orders. TT will begin deleting newer orders, so you maintain the best position-in-queue, until the total quantity of the remaining orders matches your desired lower total.
For example, suppose you place three working orders at a price level of 10, 20 and 30, respectively, for a total order quantity of 60 at that price level. You then decide you only want to work a total quantity of 30 contracts. TT would delete the 30-lot order (the most recent) to bring the total quantity to 30. Conversely, if you placed the same orders in reverse (30, 20, 10), TT would delete the 10- and 20-lot orders, leaving the single 30-lot order. If necessary, TT will change the quantity of the newest remaining order to acheive the desired total quantity.
This feature is supported only for the following order types:
- Stop limit
- Stop market
- TT Stop
To reduce the quantities of all orders at a price level:
Right-click on the working order cell on the price-level with multiple working orders.
An entry box appears showing the current total working quantity of the orders at that price level.
Enter the desired new, lower total quantity, and click . Note that you can only decrease the quantity; you cannot increase the quantity.
Notice the total working quantity updates.
If desired, you can display the Floating Order Book to see the remaining working orders.
Note: You can also reduce the total order quantity using the Floating
