The Audit Trail displays order and fill information, exchange announcements, gateway alerts, and error messages for the current trading day. You can access the Audit Trail from the X_TRADER Control Panel by selecting the button.

Order related messages include messages to and from the exchange including fills, add/change/delete orders and inquiries. Messages related to all members of your Group ID will appear in the Audit Trail.

Exchange announcements can also be seen in this window. These announcements include busted trades and pre/post opening/closing product activity. Gateway alerts provide information concerning the status of server/host processes. Error messages provide notification of an invalid action.

In addition to Audit Trail information, you may configure visible and/or audible notifications and alerts. Use the right-click context menu to export all Audit Trail data to either a comma separated or tab delimited file for external uses. Save the file to any local or network location.
