Trade Order Number
The CME Group provides a 32-character, alphanumeric field for use during order submission. Of these 32 characters, CME Group drops the leftmost characters and returns only the Trade Order Number (TON), which consists of the last five characters.
The CME Gateway uses an algorithm to generate a TT Order Number of the appropriate length (eight or six characters) from the timestamp from the CME Gateway. The CME Gateway increments this number by one for each new order.
Whenever the TT Gateway receives order and fill information from the CME Group with an attached TON, the Order Router uses an algorithm to remap the TON (what CME Group gives us) to the original TT Order Number.
