ICE Exchange API

TT® supports the following:

  • Prices: iMpact Price Feed
  • Orders: FIX

Matching Engine

ICE's primary trade matching engine for all OTC and Futures products is based in the ICE Chicago data center. The original Atlanta-based data center now functions as a disaster recovery (DR) site.

Supported Products

With the exception of Financial NGL, NGX Physical Gas, and NGX Financial Power, TT supports market types with multicast groups listed in the "iMpact Pricefeed - Multicast Grp(s)" column in the Supported Market Types on ICE API document.

Self Match Prevention support

TT supports the ICE Self Match Prevention (SMP) functionality.

SMP is optional per user and allows an executing firm to prevent the matching of orders with common ownership if both the buy and sell orders contain a registered code (STPF ID). The STPF IDs are user-defined and need to be registered at the exchange and configured for each selected user on a per firm basis using Setup.

Connectivity Options

The TT® platform provides connectivity to the exchange, so you do not have to contact the exchange regarding connectivity options. Refer to TT Access for more details about your connectivity options for connecting to TT.
