TTFIX.crt: Update Notice

For customers whose FIX engine natively supports SSL encryption, or who have implemented FIX session encryption using STunnel, TT provides a TTFIX.crt file with the public certificates used by the TT platform FIX endpoint. 

On April 26, 2024, TT updated the stunnel.zip file located in the Download Center in order to update the soon-to-be-expired certs in the TTFIX.crt bundle.

  • May 2, 2024 for UAT
  • May 10, 2024 for SIM
  • May 17, 2024 for Production – New York
  • May 31, 2024 for Production – All other locations

Customers still using the old stunnel.zip file after the dates listed above will not be able to connect to the respective TT environments.

 Added TT Platform STAR.TRADE.TT; valid from 2024/04/01- 2025/03/31 (DC)

UPDATED: CME: Mandatory Migration – iLink3 Binary Order Entry Protocol for CGW

2024

CME has introduced support for iLink3 on Convenience Gateways (CGW) for trading Futures and Options on CME Globex. CME will decommission CGW iLink2 on Jan 31, 2025 however,  all customers must migrate by December 31 of this year to avoid penalties. 

Development of TT iLink3 Convenience Gateway support is now under way. Customers familiar with the MSGW iLink3 upgrade that occurred in 2019 will find the CGW iLink upgrade familiar.

TT’s plans for support of iLink 3.0 for CGW are as follows:

  • iLink 3.0 CGW On-Demand Order Entry
    • This is available now for testing in UAT.
    • In order to begin testing in UAT, new Connections must be created: (A) using Session IDs that were created by CME specifically for iLink3, and (B) using Type = “Convenience Gateway iLink3” in TT Setup.
    • Order routing functionality of TT CGW iLink3 is identical to TT MSGW iLink3. Therefore, all existing FIX configurations, Order Tag Defaults, etc. will continue to function as expected.
    • Throttle Limits
      • For On-Demand order entry, TT recommends that customers set their Connection level Max Order Rate to 83 transactions per second in order to ensure CME iLink session throttle limits are not exceeded
      • This limit will be applied to New Order Single and Change messages, but Cancel messages will not be throttled by TT
        • Note: Cancel messages are accounted for in the rolling transaction per second queue, but will not be rejected by TT
  • iLink 3.0 CGW Pre-Registration Support
    • UAT –  Summer, specific implementation details to be published in the near future
    • Throttle Limits
      • For Pre-Registration order entry, TT recommends that customers set their Connection level Max Order Rate to 166 transactions per second in order to ensure CME iLink session throttle limits are not exceeded
      • This limit will be applied to New Order Single and Change messages, but Cancel messages will not be throttled by TT
        • Note: Cancel messages are accounted for in the rolling transaction per second queue, but will not be rejected by TT

Prior to Production launch on TT, we will provide customers with the ability to participate in Mock testing sessions which we will coordinate with the CME, details to be communicated at a later date. 

Further updates regarding timelines, migration, documentation, etc will be shared here in System News.

B3: Binary Protocol

Q2

B3 has introduced new, lower latency Binary protocols for Market Data via the Unified Market Data Feed (UMDF) and Order Entry via Simple Binary Encoding (SBE). 

On March 19, 2024, TT upgraded the B3 Binary market data protocol in UAT, the release note can be found here: https://library.tradingtechnologies.com/release_notes/uat-2024-03.html

On April 02, 2024, TT deployed the new Binary Order Entry API in UAT. Customers should contact B3 for credentials to be used with the new API. The release note can be found here: https://library.tradingtechnologies.com/release_notes/uat-2024-04.html 

* All clients are strongly encouraged to conduct testing in UAT and provide feedback.

Migration Documentation: https://library.tradingtechnologies.com/downloads/B3_Binary_Protocol_Migration_Guide.pdf

Please note that B3 continues to support the legacy protocols in parallel with the new Binary offering, and the TT migration will follow a phased approach:

  • Phase 1: TT will update its Market Data feed to use the new UMDF protocol, which is compatible with both the new SBE Order API and the legacy order entry protocol – no changes are expected for end users. This is completed and available in UAT.
  • Phase 2: TT will allow customers to continue using their existing order connections, and in parallel will allow customers to configure and use new connections using SBE. 
  • Phase 3: TT will discontinue support of the legacy orders API, and customers will need to utilize new SBE connections. Please note that any GTC/GTDate orders on legacy connections will be canceled when we cut off support for the old API.

The following are the anticipated milestones for this project:

After the change is implemented, 3-Month TONA (“TOA3M”) Spreads will change from the current 0.0001 tick increment to a tick size increment of 0.0025, thus aligning Spread tick size with their outright Futures.

Expansion of Spread Combinations: As an additional revision to 3-Month TONA Spreads, JPX is also expanding the number of spread combinations from the nearest 6 contract months to include all pairs for the nearest 20 contract months (resulting in 190 pairs in total). No TT changes are needed to accommodate this, and the new instruments have been available in UAT since April 10, 2024. Similarly, Production will automatically reflect the updates when JPX introduces the new instruments on the morning of July 22, 2024, before Pre-Open.
