Using Order Templates in MD Trader

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

You can use order templates via MD Trader by assigning an order template to a MD Trader order button. You may select any template enabled in the Order Defaults window. If you select a template that is not applicable for the product or market, the order button will appear in MD Trader but will not function.

Note: The order template name is centered on the Order button. You may want to adjust the order template name to achieve your desired text display on the Order button

Once the template is assigned to an order button, you can click the button and then the Bid or Ask column to place the order. You may also submit orders using the Order Type drop-down list.

To assign a template to an order button:

  1. Right--click MD Trader to access the context menu and select Properties .
  2. In the Order Button section, click to select the desired order template from the drop-down.
  3. Repeat Step 2 for each order button you want to configure.
  4. Click OK.

To submit orders using the Order buttons:

  1. Click the desired order button.

The selected button turns yellow and the Order Type drop-down list resets to blank (no value). Yellow indicates the currently selected order parameters.

  1. Click the Bid or Ask column to place the order.

Once the order is submitted…

  • If the Order button is sticky, the Order Type field remains blank.
  • If the Order button is not sticky, the Order Type field resets to the order template assigned to the selected customer.

To submit orders using the Order Type drop-down list:

  1. Click the Order Type drop-down list and select the desired order template.

The Order Typedrop-down list displays with a yellow background.
