ICE Self Trade Prevention Functionality will be available on the TT platform on August 27, 2021. The feature is already available in the UAT environment. There will be settings in TTUS to provide the STP ID and the instructions.

ICE has started supporting the field Manual Order Indicator, Tag 1028, to indicate if an order originated from an automated trading system or if the order was manually keyed in. TT will support this field on August 27. The feature is already available in the UAT environment. This field is an optional field for ICE as of now.
TT FIX: MaturityMonthYear Changes
TT is making changes to our Security Master database (PDS) to synchronize the month and year values displayed in the TT Trading GUI (PDS Alias field) with TT FIX tags 200, MaturityMonthYear, and 610, LegMaturityMonthYear values for all FIX order routing, drop copy, market data and security definition messages.
PDS has introduced a new field, ContractDisplayDate, (CDD), which will contain the month & year values from the Alias field. PDS will be rolling out this change market-by-market, beginning with TOCOM & OSE. Support for PDS CDD in additional markets will be announced in the coming months.
In TT FIX v158 & higher, when the PDS CDD field is present on an instrument, TT FIX will map CDD to tags 200 & 610 on all relevant inbound & outbound messages. When CDD is not present, the existing mapping to PDS Maturity Date will continue as currently implemented.
The TT FIX v158 production upgrades beginning August 6 will have this feature disabled, while v158 in UAT will continue to have it enabled. TT plans to begin enabling the feature in production on August 27. Internal Ref ID: 132009
TT Platform Impact
Customers trading OSE and or TOCOM are strongly encouraged to test their FIX applications prior to the August 27 rollout date to ensure integration with the new behavior. Please reach out to your TT Customer Representative or email email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
