To configure risk...
- On the New Gateway
Logins or Edit Gateway Logins window, the Risk Check option is checked
- Enter or edit data in the Risk Check, Credit, Currency, Trading allowed, Ignore P&L, and Risk Check fields as needed.
If traders using this gateway login need to have a different credit
limit for TT SIM trading, check the Override credit for TT SIM checkbox
and enter the TT SIM credit limit into the TT SIM credit field.
- In the Product Limits section,
click New Product Limit.
The New Product Limit window appears.
- If this product limit applies only to
TT SIM trading, check the Use Product Limit for TT SIM only checkbox.
When creating TT SIM product limits you must enter a specific Product;
you cannot enter a wildcard (*).
- Select an available Gateway and Product
type, enter an applicable Product, set the Margin and Additional
Margin %, set the Maximum order quantity, Maximum
position, and Maximum long/short, and then check or uncheck
the Trade Out allowed option. Enter 0 to reset the Maximum
order quantity, Maximum position, and Maximum long/shortto unlimited.
To enable the optional Price Drift Check settings for synthetic orders, check the checkboxes for one or more of the following time intervals:
- 1 min interval — Price constraints are applied to the new child order based on the price of the earliest child order submitted within a rolling 1 minute window.
- 3 min interval — Price constraints are applied to the new child order based on the price of the earliest child order submitted within a rolling 3 minute window.
- Lifetime — Price constraints are applied to the new child order based on the price of the initial child order submitted.
Set the following Price Drift Check parameter for each selected interval as needed:
- Ticks — Sets how many ticks from the price of the earliest submitted child order in an interval that a child order can be submitted. The default value is "0".
- Click Save.
Price drift check example
Note: Price drift checks are only applied to synthetic orders.
Price drift checks are applied to a child order based on the price of the previous child order within a rolling time interval. In the following example, Ticks are set to "3" for a 1 min interval for the gateway login, and a user submits a 100 lot TT Time Sliced order configured to disclose 10 lot orders every 30 seconds with a relative price.
Based on the price drift check, the price of the newly submitted child order is checked against the price of the earliest child order submitted within the last minute:
- For the 1st child order submitted, there are no previous child orders so the check is ignored.
- For the 2nd child order submitted, the price of the previous child order is compared.
- For the 3rd child order, the price of the 1st child order is compared (earliest child order submitted within the last one minute interval).
If the difference between the price of the earliest submitted child order and the new order price is outside the "3" tick range, the new child order will be rejected and the TT Time Sliced parent order will fail.
