Templates allow you to save frequently-used TT Order Type settings for future use. They let you quickly select a set of predefined values from a TT Order Type flyout or to assign the set of values to a custom action button in MD Trader. You can create multiple templates for a specific TT Order Type as well as create different sets of templates for different TT Order Types. These templates can be selected from the drop-down to populate the order parameter fields with the saved values.
