CME GTD Orders and Fills During Memorial Day Holiday

Advisory CA024-18

Due to the observance of the Memorial Day Holiday, CME day orders placed on Sunday, May 27th will be for the trade date of Tuesday, May 29th and will not expire until Tuesday’s close.

 

In order to maintain fill records over this extended session, the TT CME Fill Server must be configured to not rollover on Monday, May 28th.  To perform this configuration change, open the \TT\config\CME_Rollover_Schedule.ini file and comment out Monday’s line.

 

#sunday = 22:37:00,21:37:00

#monday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

tuesday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

wednesday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

thursday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

friday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

#saturday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

 

Revert this configuration change on Tuesday May 29th.

 

Important Notes

  • This configuration change will impact all products that trade via TT CME Gateways.  If any contracts are not observing adjusted trade dates due to the holiday, fill records for those contracts will remain visible over multiple trade dates.
  • Customers using Drop Copy FIX Adapters should verify that their systems will not pull fill records in a way that will result in the same fill being pulled twice, as fill records will not be purged on Monday as usual.

For more information regarding the exchange schedule please click here, and refer to the “Compact Excel” file for the Memorial Day Holiday.

 

NOTE: Due to CME’s observance of the following holidays in 2018, “TT CME Fill Server” configuration changes must be carried out for each holiday.  We will send updated Customer Advisories in the days leading up to each, which will include specifics for that particular holiday.

Additional Functionality in X_TRADER 7.17.83 and FIX Adapter 7.18.3

Advisory CA022-18

Additional Functionality in X_TRADER 7.17.83 and FIX Adapter 7.18.3

 

Earlier this year, TT released X_TRADER 7.17.83 and FIX Adapter 7.18.3, which included the following enhancements:

 

From the FIX Adapter 7.18.3 Release Notes:

Added a new FIX tag, “TTCustomerName” (18218), to New Order Single (D) and Cancel/Replace (G) messages. When TTCustomerName is present on a claimed order, X_TRADER® will attempt to match that value to a customer default name in the executing trader’s customer default list. If a match is found, the executing trader will see that customer default name pre-seeded in the order routing dialog. Requires X_TRADER® 7.17.83 or higher. (Ref 234581)

 

From the X_TRADER 7.17.83 Release Notes:

Added a new Customer column to the Order Book and OFW. The new column is OFF by default and when enabled will display all non “Default” Customer names. (Ref 234711)

 

These releases include additional functionality not previously documented in the release notes, namely:

  • X_TRADER® users that share an order book will be able to see Customer Default Name in the new OFW Customer column for all Staged & non-Staged orders.
  • When an X_TRADER user modifies a non-Staged order in a shared order book, X_TRADER® will attempt to match the Customer name on the original order to a customer default name in the modifying trader’s customer default list. If a match is found, the trader will see that customer default name pre-seeded in the order routing dialog.
  • FIX Drop Copy adapters 7.18.3 and above will include TTCustomerName (18218) on all Execution Reports for Staged and non-Staged orders submitted via X_TRADER 7.17.83 & above.

If you have any questions, please contact your Technical Account Manager.
