SGX Gateway Impact

Customers who intend to trade this session should start their SGX Gateways prior to the start of the Pre-open. Since TTChron is not configured to run on Saturdays, customers must stop TTChron on the SGX Gateway and start various TT Gateway services manually.

Prior to the Pre-open session:

  1. Stop TTChron Service.
  2. Start Guardian Server, Price Server, Order Server, and Fill Server services.

After the trading session closes, restart TTChron. (This will stop the Price, Order and Fill Server services.)

TT Application Impact

Customers should also ensure that other TT applications required for trading (e.g., TT WAN Routers, X_TRADER® Remote Hosts, TT User Setup, FMDS, Autospreader® Strategy Engine, Synthetic Strategy Engine, and Historical Fill Server) are available during this extended session.
