Fill Window Fills Pane

You are viewing X_TRADER Version 7.17 and higher. For earlier versions, click here

X_TRADER displays fill information immediately in the Fills Pane upon receipt from the exchange. However, each exchange implements the dissemination of fill information differently. Some exchanges provide the information faster than others, so problems may arise due to the following:

  • Trade confirmations may not be sent immediately or may not be received from the exchange.
  • Guaranteed fills provided by back office feeds, which are typically delayed ten seconds, can be delayed a few minutes. The length of the delay varies due to exchange trading volume fluctuations and product state changes (e.g., the closing of a market).

Trading Technologies recommends you use regular exchange screens to complement X_TRADER windows during periods of such delay.

Note: If logging is enabled, NYSE Liffe fill records write to the directory: <root>:ttlogFiles on the TT™ NYSE Liffe Gateway. The file records all fills for each NYSE Liffe trader everyday. The file follows this format: day.month.year.Ttfill_trader mnemonic. X_TRADER Administrators must manually delete these files in order to manage hard disk space.

The Fills pane also includes the Fill Type column to allow you to filter on your spread positions and view your spread legs separately from outright trades.

Fills Pane Export

In addition to one-time daily fills exports, you can schedule daily fill exports at a defined frequency using the Global Properties menu in X_TRADER. Click Settings on the Control Panel to open the Properties menu, then click the Fills tab. The Fills Pane Export section on this tab is used for configuring this functionality.

Use the following table to configure the settings in the Fills Pane Export section of the Fills tab:

Fills Pane ExportDescription

Upon X_TRADER shutdown

Exports fill data to the file and location of choice when you shutdown.

  • Your Fill window must be open when you shutdown for this to work.
  • A file is created, matching each open Fill window and their filters. Set the file location in the Global Settings section of the General tab of the Properties menu. The default file location is C:ttdatfilesExport.

Daily at: 

Lets you set a specific time of day for the export process to run daily.

Frequency:

Lets you set the intervals at which to export fills data. Enter a numeric value and select either Minutes or Seconds from the drop down menu.

Range:

Lets you set the start and end times to export fills data at the desired frequency. Configurable only if Frequency: is enabled. If the time range is less than the frequency rate (e.g., 90 minutes for a range of 7AM-8AM), you’ll be prompted to reset your frequency and range.

Manual Fills

If you execute trades outside of X_TRADER, you can manage those trade using the Add Manual Fill dialog box. Adding trades in this manner lets X_TRADER calculate your true position and P/L (profit/loss).

You can also delete and confirm fills from the Fills Pane in the Fill Window. To manage manual fills, refer to the following topics:

Filters

You can use filters in the Fill Window to quickly sort and display data.

Tip: Remove filters to return hidden fill records to the Fill window.

Refer toFiltering Overview for more information.

Fills Alert Dialog Box

When enabled, the Fills Alert dialog box displays on the desktop as a fill arrives from an exchange.

To enable the Fills Alert dialog box:

  1. From the Control Panel, click the Settings menu and choose Properties.
  2. Click the Fill tab.
  3. Click to select the Fills Alert checkbox.
  4. If you want to only be alerted on your own fills, click to select the Only Alert on Own Fills box.
  5. Click OK.

Note: Using this feature, you do not have to enter a Trader ID to display your fills. However, if you place an order using an account # mapped to a TTORD ID you are not logged in under, you will not receive the fill alert.
