TT Direct Trader Gateway Login (MGT)
Direct Trader Gateway Login (MGT) and exchange credentials overview for NFX:
- The Exchange trader ID in TT User Setup is the exchange-provided Username mapped to Tag 553.
- The Password in TT User Setup is the exchange-provided
Password mapped to Tag 554.
When adding a password for a direct trader NFX Gateway login using TT User Setup 7.17.62 or lower, press the F3 key to enable the Password fields.
- The exchange distributes a SenderCompID. This is configured as the GatewayCompany parameter in hostinfo.cfg and maps to Tag 49.
- The exchange-provided SenderSubID must be configured as the Operator ID in TT User Setup and maps to Tag 50.
To access NFX products, users must configure an order session with a single, unique Member ID as set by the Member parameter.
The "M" of the user MGT is user-defined and must match the Member parameter configured for the Order Session in hostinfo.cfg.
TTORD Trader IDs
The NFX Gateway supports TTORD Gateway Logins. When adding TTORDs in TT User Setup, consider the following:
- You can map multiple TTORDs to one direct trader.
- A single TTORD ID can map to multiple direct traders on the same TT Gateway 7.17.
- In order to trade NFX through a single X_TRADER®, customers must upgrade to X_TRADER 7.17.X and TT User Setup 7.17.X.

Authorized Trader ID (ATID)
NFX requires each firm (e.g., FCM) to properly configure an Authorized Trader for order routing and trader identification. To create an ATID using the Exchange’s CAST database application, refer to http://www.nasdaqomx.com/digitalAssets/99/99237_authorized-trader-reference-guide.-version-1.0--sr-nfx-2015-32-.pdf
You must create an ATID first before populating the Operator ID for a user’s Gateway Login in TT User Setup
After creating an ATID, you must add the value to the user’s Operator ID. In TT User Setup, you must populate the Operator ID field with the exchange-provided SenderSubID and user-defined ATID separated by a "|" character (e.g., FIX8|aking):
