Viewing your Estimated Position In Queue

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

You can view your Estimated Position in Queue (EPIQ) in MD Trader and the Market Grid. EPIQ estimates how many contracts are in front of your order at any given price.

  • If your EPIQ is 10, there are approximately 10 contracts ahead of your order.
  • If 3 contracts trade, your EPIQ changes to 7.
  • If your EPIQ is 0, your order should be the next to fill.  

Note: EPIQ is not sent from the exchanges. X_TRADER calculates an estimated EPIQ based on quantity of trades occurring in front of the order, and does not account for canceled orders or pro-rata allocations.

To display the EPIQ columns:

  1. Right-click the Market Grid.
  2. From the context menu, click Show/Hide columns and select them.
