Seeding the Floating Order Entry

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

Your floating order entry window can be the Order Pane, the Order Bar, or MD Trader. You can control whether you seed the floating order entry window in a passive or aggressive manner with a combination of enabled properties and the way you click the fields that launch the floating order entry window.

When MD Trader is your floating order entry window, you cannot aggressively seed the price, but you can aggressively seed the market quantity. A property called Seed with market qty appears in the Order Pane section of the Order Entry tab on the Properties menu.

Order Entry tab on the Properties menu

When the Order Pane and Order Bar are your floating order entry windows:

  • Left-clicking on a quantity field initiates an aggressive action (hit the bid / lift the offer).
  • Right-clicking on a quantity field joins the bid or ask.

You can reverse this functionality by enabling the Join on left click property in the Floating Order Entry section of the Order Entry tab on the Properties menu.

Note: The Join on left click property is disabled by default.
