Trader and Firm Identification

Exchange Credentials

Contact the exchange to obtain the following exchange credentials -- you must obtain one set of connection information for each Order Router or customer membership that uses the LSE Gateway:

  • Separate SAIL user IDs per order routing session for each exchange: LSE and IDEM. Note: users have access to Oslo Bors products via the LSE session, and have access to IDEX energy products via the IDEM session.

    In TT User Setup, four product groups are provided for each exchange. Access to these products is configured per user.

  • Separate passwords for each user ID.
  • Two Exchange IP Addresses (one for LSE, one for IDEM).
  • Two Exchange ports (LSE and IDEM).
  • One Exchange-provided trader ID for LSE, and one for IDEM for the SOLA® platform.

    In TT User Setup, configure an Operator ID for each trader ID. The Operator ID must be set to the exchange-provided trader ID from the Exchange. LSE, IDEM, and Oslo Bors require trader identification on all orders, so the LSE Gateway requires an Operator ID for routing orders to these Exchanges.

    One trader ID can trade in multiple sessions and have multiple logins to the same LSE Gateway at same time.

TT Direct Trader IDs

TT Direct Trader IDs on LSE Gateways use the Member-Group-Trader (MGT) format MemberIdGroupIdTraderId, where:

  • MemberId is defined by the firm.
  • GroupId is the group ID provided by the firm.
  • TraderId is the exchange-provided Trader ID.

    The exchange provides a unique, 8-character alphanumeric Trader ID that identifies the trader. The trader ID is sent to the exchange and needs to be configured as the Operator ID in TT User Setup (a password is not required).

    When creating gateway logins, the TraderId of the MGT can be user-defined or the exchange-provided Trader ID. What’s required is that the Operator ID must be set to the exchange-provided trader ID in order to trade.

TTORD Trader IDs

The following list describes TTORD trader IDs on the LSE Gateway.

  • LSE Gateways support TTORDs.
  • You can map multiple TTORDs to one direct exchange trader. However, in TT User Setup, create separate TTORDs for the LSE and IDEM direct trader gateway logins (i.e., the same TTORD cannot map to both LSE and IDEM direct traders.)
Note

A single TTORD trader cannot map to two separate direct traders on the same gateway. Therefore, each trader must use two TTORD logins that are each uniquely mapped to two different direct traders for the same username. This configuration requires X_TRADER 7.17.X and TT User Setup 7.17.X.

You must complete the following fields in TT User Setup to map a TTORD proxy trader to a direct trader:

  • Exchange: The TT Gateway exchange-flavor (e.g., LSE-A).
  • Member: An up to 7-character value defined by the user
  • Group: A three-character value defined by the user.
  • Trader: The exchange-provided Trader ID.

    The exchange provides a unique, 8-character alphanumeric Trader ID that identifies the trader. The trader ID is sent to the exchange and needs to be configured as the Operator ID in TT User Setup (a password is not required).

    When creating gateway logins, the TraderId of the MGT can be user-defined or the exchange-provided Trader ID. What’s required is that the Operator ID must be set to the exchange-provided trader ID in order to trade.

Note

Each TTORD ID that connects to and trades on the Exchange must use a unique clearing account.

FFT2 and FFT3 Fields

Traders can use the FFT2 and FFT3 fields for account management. FFT2 field is mapped to the 'OwnerData' field in the exchange SAIL API and sent to the exchange as part of all order messages.The LSE Gateway does not require FFT3 for order routing and its value is not sent to the exchange.

Exchange API Field Mapping

The LSE Gateway maps the account data in the Account# and Account Type fields in X_TRADER® to the following SAIL protocol messages sent to the exchange.
