Autotrader sends all orders as Aggressive. Orders become Passive if they are not immediately filled.
Autotrader Tick Formula
Because BrokerTec uses the + to designate half ticks, a function was developed to allow you to continue using offsets in Autotrader.
Example: =TICK(3, mBidPrc, 2)
- <row>= The row # (from the top of the grid including headers, 1 based) - meaning 3 is the first Autotrader row, 4 is the second...etc.
- <price>= The base price: a string, number, or column name (ex: 110.01, "110.01+", mBidPrice). If this parameter contains a literal price with a plus in it, the parameter must be wrapped in quotes.
- <n>= The number and direction of ticks to move the base price contained in the second parameter. Positive numbers indicate ticking up; negative values, ticking down.
