Although TT has only recently been released to the public worldwide, for the last year, we have been honing and refining the software in our early-access program. One of the features of the new TT platform that has received a significant amount of attention is a key differentiator in the way users can scan the universe of tradeable products.
From the outset, TT offered a natural word search, which was already a game-changer from the “hunt and peck” method of sifting through an exchange, type, product or expiry. In TT, a user can type “corn” and get a list of results for corn futures, spreads, options, etc. on any supported exchange.
Now, TT has enhanced the search functionality even more, such that each selection from a list of results can add context to narrow down a search.
User types in “cme” and gets a list of exchanges and related products:
The user selects “CME.” Next, the user searches for a product. Because CME was already selected as a delimiter, only products listed at CME will be in the results list:
However, if the user clicks the “tab” key after typing ES, the product becomes another delimiter:
All subsequent searches will occur only within this product. Since the product is more narrow than “CME,” the user could even remove the CME context and get the same results:
