  • Order type availability varies per product.
  • Because the exchange does not explicitly support FOK, the MX Gateway supports this as an IOC with minimum quantity set using the order quantity.
  • Cross trades are supported.
  • The Exchange only supports Stop orders on SXF and SXM contracts.
  • Market to Limit orders appear as Market orders in X_TRADER®.
  • The exchange does not support Market on Open for interest rate derivatives. Users may continue to submit Market on Open orders for index derivatives.
