TT Direct Trader IDs

To access both NLX and Nordic products, users must configure a minimum of two separate order sessions. Each session must be configured with a single, unique Member ID as set by the Member parameter.

TTORD Trader IDs

A single TTORD ID cannot map to multiple direct traders on the same TT Gateway. Due to this restriction, TTORD traders can access all available products by mapping to two separate TTORD logins.

In order to trade NLX and Nordic through a single X_TRADER®, customers must upgrade to X_TRADER 7.17.X and TT User Setup 7.17.X.
