The TT® platform provides you with access to GDAX to trade a variety of digital currencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin on a regulated exchange. On TT, you also have access to CME and CFE Bitcoin futures markets, which provide the opportunity to hedge GDAX trades in cryptocurrencies with positions in their respective futures contracts.
Before trading on GDAX, create an account and add a payment method to fund wallets on Coinbase. Coinbase is a secure online platform for buying, selling, transferring, and storing digital currency. After funding your Coinbase wallet, create and upload funds to your account on GDAX, which is a subsidiary of Coinbase.
After your GDAX account is created, sign in and create a GDAX API key and secret. These credentials are required in order to connect to GDAX via the TT platform.
To trade GDAX using the TT platform as a member of a trading firm, contact your risk administrator to set up your GDAX credentials in TT. The risk administrator can set up members of your trading firm to trade GDAX using their own GDAX accounts or using the same GDAX account.
If you are trading with your own GDAX account, create your own GDAX credentials (API key, API secret, and passphrase) in order to configure a connection to GDAX using the Users | Exchanges (GDAX) | Trader IDs tab.
If you or a group of traders in your firm are trading with the firm's GDAX account, provide your risk administrator with your GDAX credentials. The risk administrator needs a unique combination of API key, API secret, and passphrase for each user of the shared GDAX account to create a trader ID for each user. Each trader ID can use the same GDAX account passphrase, but with a different key and secret.
If you are trading for yourself and have administrator permissions on TT, log in to the Setup application to create a trader ID using your GDAX API key, API secret, and passphrase. A trader ID is required for connecting to GDAX via the TT platform.
