TT SIM Behavior

Market Updates

TT SIMTM continues to update based on snapshots from the production price feeds.

When trading in simulation mode, TT SIM combines production trading activity with all trades entered by the user into the simulated market. Therefore, trades entered into simulation directly reflects in all market data (e.g., updates High/Low, LastPrc, Volume, etc.).

The market reflects the trader’s simulated working orders. When a simulation trader's orders fill against production prices, the production prices will reflect the lower quantity until the next snapshot of market activity is received from production.
