Introduction to the Parent Order Book

You are viewing X_TRADER Version 7.17 and higher. For earlier versions, click here

The Parent Order Book provides one window where you can manage various TT orders types that generate parent orders (e.g., Algo orders, Autospreader, Staged, and Synthetic orders) and all of their related child orders. You can launch the Parent Order Book from the X_TRADER Control Panel by selecting the button.

The Parent Order Book is comprised of three distinct panes: the Parent Order Pane, the Working Child Order Pane, and the Filled Child Order Pane. Algo view also includes an additional pane called the Algo Variable Pane, allowing you to modify and apply Algo variables. The Order Toolbar contains a drop-down button allowing you to select the parent order type that you would like to view in the window.

The buttons displayed on the Order Toolbar coincide with the parent order type selected in the Parent Order Type drop-down list and allows you to modify parent orders. The Order Toolbar also contains an Orders and Fills Window icon, allowing you to quickly open an Orders and Fills Window filtered by the parent orders selected in the Parent Order Pane. The Working Child Order Pane displays working child orders and the Filled Child Orders Pane displays filled child orders for the orders selected in the Parent Order Pane.
