SFE Block Trades

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

You can use the Wholesale Order window to submit Block trades to SFE. You must register with the exchange’s ASX TradeAccept system prior to entering Block trades via X_TRADER.

SFE Block Trade messages are sent to the SFE only for certain contracts (e.g., AP, XT, YT, IR etc.) and to “All Users” for other contracts (e.g., SFE Electricity Contracts). Please check with the SFE for a description of the behavior of Block trades for various contracts.

If you are crossing an order, only enter it once in X_TRADER as listed in the section below. Users must then submit the details into the ASX TradeAccept system as described in the TradeAccept User Manual. The SELLER submits details of the trade and the BUYER accepts the details of the trade in TradeAccept.
