Types of TT FIX Adapter Configurations

Overview

This chapter provides an overview of the different types of TT FIX Adapter configurations and describes the basic structure of a configuration. The chapter also introduces the TT FIX Adapter Configuration Tool (FACT), which allows you to create configurations through a Windows-based interface.

About configuration types

The TT FIX Adapter allows you to create the following types of configurations, where each is based on a specific business use case:

  • Order routing
  • Drop copy

Order routing

The order routing configuration type allows FIX clients to use all functionality offered by TT FIX Adapter, such as routing orders, subscribing for market data, downloading contract definitions, and viewing orders and fills.

Drop copy

The Drop copy configuration type allows FIX clients to use all of the same functionality except for routing orders.
