Selecting an Order Gatewayor Broker in the Market Window

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

You can select an order gateway or broker using the Routing Configuration dialog box. This dialog box is available from the Order Pane, MD Trader and the Order Bar. To invoke the Routing Configuration dialog box from the trading window, click the Routing field. You can also click the Browse button to the right of the Routing field in the Order Pane.

Notes:

  • The Routing section will not display if there is only one available broker (X_TRADER ASP) or order gateway (Non-X_TRADER ASP) and no defined routing rules. Only the Customer section displays with a list of available customers.
  • When an order gateway and broker (X_TRADER ASP) are selected in the Market Grid columns, only the Customer section displays in the Routing section.
  • Orders are rejected upon submission if a selected gateway is down. See the Audit Trail for additional information on rejected orders.

Tip: Quickly navigate the Routing Configuration dialog box with your keyboard by pressing the Tab key to set focus on the next field and the Tab+Shift keys to the previous field.
