TT Direct Trader IDs

You can determine and set up any Member

ID and Group ID you like, however, each trader must have a unique

Trader ID and associated password distributed by ICE.

When entering Users into the Windows User Authentication System,

you must use the format: MemberGroupTrader where:

  • Member: A maximum seven-digit variable determined

    by the customer.

  • Group: A three-digit variable determined by the customer.
  • Trader: This must match the User ID that ICE Gateway distributes. ICE Gateway distributes one

    User ID per trader. A User ID can have up to 11 characters. For

    ICE Gateway 7.17, the Trader ID must be configured as the Operator

    ID in TT User Setup.

TTORD Trader IDs

You must map each TTORD trader to an exchange

recognized direct trader.

You must complete the following fields in Guardian to map

a TTORD proxy trader to a direct trader:

  • Exchange: the TT Gateway exchange-flavor (e.g., ICE-A)
  • Member:

    the TTORD trader ID

  • Group:

    a three-digit variable defined by the user.

  • Trader:

    a multi-digit variable defined by the user.

If an incorrectly mapped TTORD trader submits a trade, the ICE Gateway rejects the

transaction and forwards a No

mapping for Trader TTORDXX 001 001 acct |XX001001| in

database error message to the X_TRADER® Audit Trail.

If a TTORD trader submits a trade with an unrecognized account,

the ICE Gateway rejects the transaction and forwards a Trader TTORDXX 001 001 is not allowed to

use account |ABC| error message to the X_TRADER® Audit

Trail.

Order Session Identification

TT Gateways 7.16 and higher contain an

enhancement that displays the exchange credential used to route

all orders and fills through the exchange. This includes all order

modifications and exchange rejects but does not include orders actions

on Hold orders and position reserve orders.

Currently, this value is available in the following locations:

  • Audit logs: appears in the ExchangeCredentials column
  • Order Server logfile
  • FIX Adapter 7.8: via Tag 18216 (ExchCred)
Note

The exchange credential will be available

in future versions of other TT client applications.

For ICE, the exchange credential is a combination of the SenderCompID

and SenderSubID as listed in the GatewayCompany and GatewaySessionID parameters

listed in the [OrderSession#] section used to route the order.

This information is available for all actions on orders and

fills.

SUPPORT FOR CUSTOMER ORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION (TAG 1031)

For ICE, tag 1031 is supported by ICE Gateway 7.18.29. Use FFT6 in X_TRADER® to send the value to the exchange. This field is optional for ICE.
