Freezing Autospreader Orders

You can freeze working orders in Autospreader without losing your spot in the queue. This allows you to react to a rapidly changing market, freezing and unfreezing orders when needed. This option is accessible via the Autospreader MD Trader spread pane context menu.

Notes:

  • When enabled, you can freeze and unfreeze orders using the F hotkey on the keyboard.
  • The hot key function freezes all legs when the Autospreader pane has focus.
  • Frozen orders do not re-quote with price updates.
  • The Do Not Hedge Frozen Orders option lets you configure whether or not you hedge frozen orders upon fills and partial fills. You can toggle this option using the Dynamic Settings tabs while you are trading.
  • Orders immediately resume quoting when you unfreeze them.
  • The color bar moves to the right side of the cell of a working order when you freeze it.
