Hey Guys, it seems that TT has released its cloud based/browser based platform.

Here are the FCMs that will support it: https://www.tradingtechnologies.com/trading/tt-platform/

Here is the demo: https://trade.tt/ register to see how cloud based should look and feel without any downloads.

As far as I know the initial release is free for traders.

Thanks,
Matt

I see.

Well, I think this is just gen 1 in terms of web based cloud solutions.
As we progress, we will see more and more trading companies going this way while hopefully the cost of platform will eventually diminish all included in routing and trading.

I do give you @Big Mike a lot of credit for pointing the cloud solutions a few years back, and I admit, I did not realize the strength of this cloud based trend. When I see now the number of issues traders are having, with downloads, video cards, etc I hope this will all solve it. This is 2015 and stability should be a given, not a privilege.

Yes they just changed the name of it.

I've heard good things about it, but I gather it's still a work in progress and after the XTrader 7.17 fiasco I'm being very patient.

Couple of points
  • With the release of this new product Trading Technologies no longer plan to update/upgrade XTrader (although they do still support it for now at least), so the functionality in 7.17 is going to be all you get. For further enhancements you'll have to upgrade to the new product which is completely non compatible with XTrader and its architecture.
  • The last time I talked to TT which was admittedly a few months ago, some of the advanced functionality in XTrader was not available in the new product, and was expected to be released late this year. Examples include some ADL functionality/blocks, RTD links etc.
  • It should be pointed out that while the front end and things like audit logs etc is/can be cloud based the back end, autospreaders, algo engines, gateways, etc are all apparently colocated at the exchanges. For the average non-advanced trader this will be a significant upgrade to the current 'run on your desktop' style applications.
  • There is also a desktop version of product which isnt browser dependent but still uses the cloud and colocated servers.
  • I have heard from somebody (who doesn't work for TT) that the new autospreaders, gateways etc are now all unix based rather than windows based and are significantly faster than the legacy products. Won't effect your point and click trader, but autospreaders and ADL users should be happy.

Personally as somebody who has my own colocated servers, TTs reluctance to discuss the architecture, where are the gateways, how are they dynamically balancing their load etc etc disturbing. How can I be sure that their new setup is better than one I already have and/or is running optimally? After some of the issues I have had over the years "trust us" makes me very wary. Does anybody here use TTNet? If so what is the support like at night? My experience is that outside of Chicago working hours, TTs software support is terrible, but it may be different for TTNet/their new architecture.

I already have a meeting with them in a few weeks time on the calendar. Will update after that.

Can confirm that it's still not a finished product. While a lot of the base functionality is working a lot of the advanced functionality is still coming soon™.

Did any of your concerns get cleared up in your meeting with TT or is it still just a "take our word for it" type of response?

I gather that they have many people who have raised similar issues, so they are now aware of the concern and are looking into it.

TT have a large proportion of the prop trading firms. I suspect that they will eventually come out with a version where you (or your broker) can host/support your own architecture/setup and not have to use theirs. Unfortunately since the base product itself still isn't finished yet I suspect that this is not on the near horizon.

On a positive note I continue to hear very good feedback on how fast the new product is versus the old product.

I have looked through several videos but its not clear whats the difference between the TT Standard and Pro. It does say Pro for Autotraded, ADL etc. The term on the website is (Market access to all features including Autospreader®, Aggregator, third-party algos, TTSDK™ and ADL®

My questions are for the TT Standard at 50 bucks a month, do we get
a) Charting
b) Ability to trade exchange traded spreads on the DOM and view through the Spread Matrix and then trade it
c) On the demo, there are no options: So can we look at futures options with greeks in say Market grid and then trade it?

I can ask TT as well - wondering if someone knows

If yes to all, then we have a web based platform close to CQG Q trader for about the same price (and Qtrader is not web based)

Just so we are the same page. TT now market two platforms, 'The TT Platform' their new semi-cloud based, semi-colocated product and their legacy XTrader system, which comes in the Standard and Pro versions. I believe the difference between Standard and Pro are the automated trading features, mainly Autospreader & ADL.

a) I believe charting in the new system is standard. In the old system you need the X_Study addin. I 'think' but am not sure that this is free, but that many brokers will charge you for access as it involves them (the broker) maintaining a historical database. The database is tick-by-tick and even includes bid-ask etc, not just for outrights but for all exchange traded spreads as well. As such this is a massive amount of data that the broker has to gather and maintain. Another point here, if your broker is anything other than 100% on the ball I believe their data my have gaps. Should be noted that XTrader isn't known for it's charting.
b) Yes. TT were the original develops of DOM. They have a patent on it and many other systems develops pay them a fee to use it. The DOM is used in order management not only directly into the market but also for things like autospreaders.
c) In XTrader you can trade options, create exchange supported strategies, use autospreaders etc. As far as I am aware there are no greeks though. Not sure about the new system, but would assume it's the same and potentially better.

Regarding TT Standard:

Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, charting is included, Spreadmatrix, MD Trader. The ability to trade futures and options as your FCM permissions. If you upgrade to the TT Pro version then you will get access to ADL, Algo's, Autospreader. So you are correct, you would need the TT Pro version to import and use an algo created in X_TRADER.

Thanks

*******
Regarding no Option greeks in the TT demo that we can sign up for

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately options and their greeks are not available in the Delayed Prices environment, however they are available in the Production Live and Sim environments.

The Spread Matrix is designed for matching different outright contract months and displaying those outrights as spreads. This widget does not display options or their greeks.

We will be delivering more features for options on futures in the next few quarters. This will include an Options Chain widget, which will allow for options and their greeks to be displayed by strike, rather than in the Market Grid. If there are any other issues please let us know.

Regards,


******
Note: I have always searched and searched for info like this - it feels to give back a bit.. thanks BigMike..

I am having trouble figuring out how to create an OCO order. I see how to put OCO in the MD, but don't see where you set up the actual trade/stop/limit.

OCO orders in the demo environment are only an indication that we support native OCO's on Eurex. An OCO order type has been developed and will be released to production in the coming weeks.

Regrading options greeks, we expect to support them in early Q2. The initial work is complete and we are testing this feature now.

Yes, charting is free with the new TT platform. We don't charge for it on X_TRADER either however some FCMs pass along a charge for supporting the server required for X_STUDY. All of the servers in the new TT platform are owned and managed by TT so there's now tacked on charges from FCMs.

The TT platform is accessible in a browser on cellphones and we also have an app Google Play as well as the Apple App Store. Search for Trading Technologies or the name of the app: TT Mobile.

You should get in touch with @Big Mike and do a webinar/demo of the new system here. The server side execution would be a big upgrade for a lot of people here.

You should get in touch with @Big Mike and do a webinar/demo of the new system here. The server side execution would be a big upgrade for a lot of people here.

I've tried reaching out to all my contacts at TT a few times, can't get anyone to respond

I'm here for you Big Mike and would like to speak with you about giving a presentation of the new TT platform here. We showed it a long time ago and the platform is now live and more mature.

Hi patrick.

I am from Malaysia. I am considering using TT for trading. I saw that TT have their server in Singapore. If I place trade would it get executed faster?

Our servers are all co-located so your automated order entry logic is as close to the matching engine as possible. Faster is a relative term so relative to execution on a server that is not co-located, yes, your automated order will be executed faster.

Hi patrick,

Would the trading platform auto detect or do you have to assign the closest TT server in your region?

The platform has logic built in to route to the optimal server. You may also override this and declare the destination of your order routing logic. This is useful for strategies that execute at multiple exchanges.

But surely all the servers are at the exchange you execute at, or are they at datacenters somewhere else?

Does this mean that if I have an automated logic that involves two exchanges (say ICE & NYMEX) that I can decide at which exchange the logic is executed? (ie which exchange is close and which is exchange is far for lack of a better explanation?

We are co-located at all the exchanges. Yes, we provide for self declaration of logic location so you can declare at which matching engine you wish to locate your logic. The ICE / NYMEX example is very appropriate. Perhaps the NYMEX market is thin today and ICE is robust. You may wish to ensure your logic is residing at NYMEX today despite having it at ICE in days past.

Hi @patrickrooney

Are we bale to ask you any questions about TT, not just those related to the new Cloud platform?

My data feed is TT which is fed into Sierra Chart (broker AMP) via the TT Fix Adapter.

If you can answer questions specific to this feed and TT in general, let me know and I will start a new thread.

The sort of things I would ask cover:
- the future of the FIX adapter
- symbols available (especially market internals)
- ability to continue to use the feed for SC, but at the same time login to TT Cloud to manage trades etc in a disaster planning scenario.

Cheers

Hello Steve,

FIX Adapter is not going away and you may read more about FIX and our API solutions for TT here: https://www.tradingtechnologies.com/trading/apis/

Also, we have a developers network who can give you guidance on FIX specifics: https://www.tradingtechnologies.com/xtrader-help/apis/getting-started/choose-your-api/

I think I can get away with asking this question as it is half TT (cloud) related:

With one set of Live trading credentials (supplied from AMP) can I feed my charts in Sierra Charts, but place the actual live trades directly in TT (Cloud)?

The advantages are the orders are on your servers or the exchange (good risk mitigation), proper OCO functionality, and the ability to see my real time account balance (not available on the TT Fix Adapter).

If this is possible, would I still only pay one lot of CME monthly data fees?

Hopefully one day I could do everything through TT(cloud) but right now the charts/indicators/drawing tools can't replicate my exact SC setup.

I'm not certain how AMP would address this and you'll need to bring it up with them. Their support desk is very responsive: support@ampfutures.com

Also, the new platform, TT, is not a 'cloud' platform per se. You are not trading through the cloud. The cloud is used for not latency sensitive storage of information like your workspace. Once you log into your workspace you're looking at a local instance of the workspace and your order routing logic is co-located with exchange matching engines. You're not 'trading through the cloud'.

Hello Patrick,

Could you please answer my questions?

1. Can we use Sierra Chart with TT? Which connection type would it be? Can we use the TT API with Sierra Chart or does it have to be TT Fix? If TT Fix, are the Bid and Ask Volume accurate now or does the problem with TT Fix still exist?

2. When will TT bring more advanced charting (more options in volume profiling)?

Thank you very much!

@Malvolio X_TRADER supports integration with other platforms while TT does not at this time. We are constantly adding new features to the TT platform and this includes charting. Volume Profile / Market Profile type charts will be available by the end of Q3.

Hi @patrickrooney,

Thank you for you answer. I know that the X_Trader API is free with X_Tradr Pro, but is it usable with the standard X_Trader too and what are the costs?

Thank you!

Hello @patrickrooney,

I am testing the new TT platform and would like to know if it is possible to detach a workspace to another screen or to open another workspace in another browser tab (I want to use more than one screen).

Regarding the new charting functionality:
- Will it be possible to draw a volume profile by hand,
- To have aggregated tick or volume bars,
- To have the option to choose a different colour for the drawing tools (for example segment)?

Thank you!

Hello Malvolio,

Thank you for the questions.
1. You may stretch a browser over multiple monitors at this time. It's worth noting you may also have multiple workspace "windows" in TT. Users may easily toggle between multiple workspace "windows" within a single workspace.

2. Please provide some detail here regarding "draw a volume profile by hand". We intend to support market profile functionality by the end of Q3.

3. Aggregated tick / volume bars will be supported by the end of Q3.

4. Color configuration of drawing tools will be supported by the end of Q3 as well.

Best regards,

Patrick

Yes, once we have market profile done it will be easy to add Volume Bar Charts. August
Drawing tool coloring is on the docket for this year. Hopefully before end of Q3.

Thank you for your answer.

With that I mean to be able to draw a volume profile over a given data serie like a balance zone from last week for example or just the last 2 days.

I noticed after creating some workspaces I can open them one by one and move them to the other screens, but had to reload the webpage before.

I'm glad to hear you are happy with the workspaces solution.
Regarding the volume profile charts, yes, you will be able to define discrete time periods

Hello @patrickrooney,

May I ask you 2 questions more?

1. Is it possible to view the bids and offers in MD Trader as a volume histogramm too and
2. is it possible to combine the records in the time and sales (with: same price and type, or same time and price, or same time and type)?

Thank you!

Sorry, but I mean a volume histogram of the market depth (bid and offers).


Regarding the T&S, I cannot find the option to combine for example "price and type".
(When this option is enabled, then time and sales records that have an identical trade price, and an identical type with regard to Bid Trade or Ask Trade, are combined into a single record in the Time and Sales list window.)
I can only choose a minimum quantity to display (to filter the T&S).

Anyway, thank you!

Best regards.

OK, the histogram on bids and offers...i'm curious about that. What manages the shading there? Dark red vs. light red. And it sounds like you're looking for a rollup in T&S. We default the rollup to one second now.

Hi,

Thank you for your answer.

The image is from CTS. To me it seems that the shading is based on the largest bid OR offer. In this example it is the bid @ 166.65 with 522 contracts. So this gets 100% of the total shading and the rest of the bids AND offers is based on that. All limits with near to 261 contracts now are getting a 50% shading, for example the offer @ 166.78 with 251 contracts.
With shading the bids and offers it is easier to see the changes in the market depth.

Regarding the time and sales combining, this is from Sierra Chart. With combining the records it is easier to see the volume traded. I don´t mean the rollup with this. The T&S is just combining different records in one record. It is not that important. But a shading of the bids and offers would be nice.

Have a great weekend.

Best regards.

Hi @patrickrooney,

1. The TT Algos (like the new TT OCO Algo) and the RTD Support, are they provided in both platforms (standard and pro)?

2. Are the TT Algos held on the server, so that they will be executed still in case of an interruption on the client side?

Thank you!

>>> Yes, the TT Algos, including the now TT OCO Algo, are available in each version of TT.

2. Are the TT Algos held on the server, so that they will be executed still in case of an interruption on the client side?
>>> Yes, logic for the TT Algos is held on co-located servers.

Does anybody here use TT already? If so, what do you pay for accessing Eurex? Advantage Futures told me I would have to pay a monthly €250 ETI session fee. What is your broker (besides AMP, which I am not interested in)? Thanks!

Reason behind that is, Advantage does not have any client using TT at the moment. So if more clients come on, costs wil decrease.

This is not true. Advantage has many traders using the TT platform. There may not many with credentials for
Eurex however.

Yes, you are right. I apologize for the wrong statement. I was referring to Eurex of course.

Why is the price of XTrader going up over 10% next month despite there being no enhancements in over a year, while the price of the new systems remains unchanged?

The X_TRADER platform has never seen a price increase since its inception. During the product lifetime, significant enhancements have been made to the platform. Also, during that same timeframe, infrastructure costs and operational costs have risen at a steady rate. We are now simply standardizing our pricing across all formats: X_TRADER, X_TRADER ASP and TT. With the introduction of the new TT platform, the total cost of ownership will be greatly reduced, benefiting the users with the elimination of dedicated infrastructure and installed software costs.

People won't switch if the new one is more expensive, so increase the price of the old one in line with the new. Makes sense.
(even if the old is out dated technology, requires significantly more infrastructure and no longer receives enhancements!)

Some questions...
Question 1: Does the new TT do everything the old XTrader does yet?
Question 2: Do you have any benchmarks on how a) Autospreaders and b) ADL performs in the new TT when compared to "XTrader running on a dedicated co-located server"? Ideally something that compares your TT infrastructure under a realistic work load rather than it just running a single autospreader.
Question 3: Now does the new TT handle client disconnects be it client-cloud or cloud-'tt infrastructure'?

TAP THE POWER OF EXCEL AND RTD WITH THE NEW EXCEL ADD-IN IN TT®

Improve your decision making and differentiate your trade execution on the TT platform with TT’s Excel add-in. Import real-time market data and position information into an Excel spreadsheet, perform analysis using custom formulas, and feed dynamic values into TT to display visual indicators and drive automated trading strategies.
Watch these videos to learn more:
EXCEL INTEGRATION
USING RTD AND EXCEL LINKING

TRADE OPTIONS WITH NEW FUNCTIONALITY IN TT

TT has enhanced options support with a beta release of two widgets that currently support options on CME.
The Vol Curve Manager widget supports viewing bid/ask implieds, settlement curves and a TT-provided automated fit. The automated fit is recorded every five seconds, allowing for visualization/analysis of volatility changes over time. You can also manage your own curve using a seven-point clamped cubic spline model.
The Options Chain widget allows you to view all options for a given expiration in a classic chain layout. Theoretical values and Greeks use the volatility curves viewed or managed in the Curve Manager. When you don't manage your own curve, theos and Greeks will use the automated fit.
AUTOMATE YOUR EXIT STRATEGY WITH OCO AND BRACKET ALGOS

Two new TT Algos help you mitigate risk and automate your exit strategy for open positions.
OCO Algo: Enter a limit order away from the market and, at the same time, enter a stop order in case the market moves away from you. If one of the orders is filled, the other is canceled.
Bracket Algo: When an initial limit or stop order is filled, this algo triggers an OCO. You can automatically set your profit and loss targets before entering a position.
VIEW ORDERS AND FILLS IN CHARTS

Now you can view orders and fills in the Chart widget. Fill indicators show when orders were filled alongside historical market data, and order indicators allow you to cancel and modify working orders directly in the chart. Coming soon: Enter orders directly in a chart.


PREVENT OVERFILL WHEN QUOTING MORE THAN ONE LEG WITH AUTOSPREADER®

While quoting more than one leg of a spread with Autospreader gives you a greater opportunity of getting filled, you risk getting filled on more than your desired quantity. Prevent Overfill with Reload is a new Autospreader Rule that allows you to quote multiple legs when using Reload until there is a possibility of an overfill. When an overfill is possible, this rule suppresses quoting in all but the first leg of your spread, thus preventing an overfill situation.


OPTIMIZE WORKSPACES WITH MULTI-WINDOW FUNCTIONALITY

Now TT supports multiple windows within a workspace. Create up to eight separate windows, each with its own layout, in each workspace. Only one window is viewable at a time, but all windows are open and running in the background, and you can quickly navigate between them. Coming soon: View all windows at the same time and position them on multiple monitors.


ACCESS AUSTRALIAN SECURITIES EXCHANGE (ASX) AND SINGAPORE EXCHANGE (SGX)

TT now provides connectivity to ASX and SGX through the exchanges’ colocation facilities, which reduces price and execution latency. In addition, TT also now supports detailed depth on both exchanges.

I am looking for the ADL Tutorials within the TT platform (demo).
Here it says it is accessible from the ADL Designer canvas Tutorial menu:
https://www.tradingtechnologies.com/xtrader-help/adl/adl-learning-guide/creating-algos/
but I cannot find them within the ADL Designer. Are the Tutorials accessible with the TT Demo?
Thank you!

So the answer to Question 1 is obviously "no" based upon your most recent reply.
Since my 3 questions seem to be the only 3 questions you haven't answered in this thread, I can guess what the answers are for the other two questions.

Sorry if I seem like a hater - I'm actually not. If you actually read this entire thread and other TT threads here at futures.io you'll actually see I've been one of your big supporters. It's just infuriating to be a long time user (supporter and Beta tester at times) of XTrader but now to be in the situation that you've stopped improving your flagship product, in order to promote your new product that a year after launch still doesn't have the some of the same (base?) functionality. Seems like you've abandoned the people whose support got you to where you are, but then I'm just a single user (with multiple licenses) so my opinion may not be representative.

As you are aware, X_TRADER has a huge collection of features and functionality. Many of these features are never or rarely used so the answer to question one is no. We have not added every single component of X_TRADER to the TT platform. If you are curious about specific features, I strongly encourage you to use our demo platform, which is production level software, to see what you are looking for has been added to the TT platform. Alternatively, as a long standing and respected TT customer, you are welcome to speak with your sales rep who can detail the features in the TT platform for you.

Regarding performance, TT is the fastest commercially available trading platform. We have the numbers to defend that statement and many may be found is this blog entry. https://www.tradingtechnologies.com/blog/2016/03/15/a-look-back-on-tts-first-year/

As for disconnects, we include configurable setting within the automation widgets, Autospreader, ADL, etc., to determine what action to take.

Seems like you've abandoned the people whose support got you to where you are, but then I'm just a single user (with multiple licenses) so my opinion may not be representative.

I would like to present you with another side of the business - from the brokerage perspective. For the longest time, platforms with the technological capabilities of TT along with their world class support were only available to highly capitalized traders. But with this change in business model, a high-end product will now made available at a reasonable cost to retail traders.

Rolling out new software is hard. First, you release the main core functionalities that most traders need and then you build on top of that based on initial feedback and live testing. For those ever present in these forums, we have already seen what happens when the launch of a new software does not go according to plan.

So I can fully appreciate the difficulties and complications that can arise from converting, both customers and companies, from a well-established legacy product like X_Trader, around which entire trading communities and infrastructures have been established. But I am also equally confident in TT’s ability to make this as seamless a transition as possible. My guess is that they weighed all their options and decided to go this route and devote all their resources to TT versus trying to support both products without really specializing in one.

I personally am glad that this is available now for most traders. One thing I can say about TT or the new TT, is that the traders who use it actually trade. They don’t stay in sim mode for years or just stare at their platforms all day to see what is going on in the markets. From a revenue perspective, this is very important. Active traders make it possible for companies like TT to provide these products at reduced prices.

And I certainly don’t need to tell anyone about how low commissions have been discounted since the advent of the online trading craze. Now I am not saying I am for or even against low commissions. The markets determine what one should pay for a service. Our job is to provide that service to the best of our abilities while also making money for our business. BUT, one side-effect of the discounted trading model has been the rise of the perpetual paper trader. I am not talking about people who just paper trade or sim for a few months in order to test a platform and/or strategy. No, I am talking about those traders that spend years in front of their screens without making a single trade. Lack of time, courage, or fear - they just can’t pull the trigger. I realize I am deviating here a bit, but I simply wanted to point out how important it is to bring technology to the marketplace that is not only affordable, but one that is sought out by real traders who actually trade. I have many theories about why certain platforms attract certain types of traders, people who just “fascinated” with the idea of trading as opposed to real traders, but that would be another thread.

In the end, this move to a web based platform was inevitable. On the equity side, which always seems to evolve faster than futures industry (sorry!), traders are shifting towards mobile and web based trading really fast. For example, E-Trade recently revealed that “among E*TRADE customers, total trades and options trades on smartphones are up 24 percent and 41 percent from 2015.” As we look to the future, we will see a trend where traders will want their mobile and web based executions to match their desktops with the ability to have concurrent logins to all apps. Again, I just wanted to add another side to the argument in support of a technological shift that makes more sense for TT and brings a very good product to the average retail trader.

Thank you,
Matt Z

Just to chip in after @mattz with my two cents:

I've been burnt in the similar ways and can empathize with the feeling of getting reduced treatment as your vendor moves its business in another direction. That said, to be fair to TT, I wouldn't say that they aren't innovating in the technology stack.

In fact, building a production strength browser-based GUI is hard. Very hard.

It's easy to find administrators with MySQL experience, or for anyone to pick up HTML/CSS/JS, but it's another thing to build something that interfaces with high concurrent message volume, networks and hard metal. You need a very specific set of skills that don't usually come with trading experience, so there's an implicit training cost. And then there's a lot of competition for the same developers out there coming from the large tech firms.

The other thing that people don't realize is that it's hard to do static type checking and unit testing etc. in JS, so the software development pace and implicit cost is [trying to find the poop emoji].

The most obvious upside to a client is that the cross-platform compatibility. You don't have to worry about being on a Mac/Linux machine and maintaining

The second obvious upside, though I'm not sure if this is the direction that they have taken yet, is mutual and has to do with cloud hosting. It's easy to run into data corruption issues if all of it is localized. Most retail traders don't have the time and capital to set up redundant storage for their trading needs. Moving this onto the cloud allows TT to build up a distribution channel for (historical?) market data, but also reduce a retail trader's implicit data storage costs.

The third upside also has to do with cloud hosting. Exposing dedicated servers as trading gateways to the public internet is costly to maintain and especially a security vulnerability. If all of this sits on a web server that sits on a VM, it's becomes slightly more manageable because of the open source tools available. Aside from that, this makes it very easy for TT to keep high uptime because you can easily spin up a new VM and maintain redundant paths this way.

Not everyone benefits from the above three scenarios, certainly, but for the average user in TT's population, I'd say it's in the positive direction.

Now, I haven't tried this and don't use TT, so I'm not making observations here, just airing out what I think is likely: If TT offers a dedicated hosting or autospreading product that hooks up to this cloud thing, it would be silly if they made the cloud component actually do any 'hard' processing work. The cloud thing is probably just the front-end. I'd be surprised if their devs were to be silly enough as to meld the two together.

That said, there's companies who makes "GUI-side idea generation + dedicated spreader/server hosting execution" their first priority and if one is dissatisfied with TT, it seems like the natural direction to go. It gets a little costlier than TT certainly, but in the long term, the extra speed and improved technical support usually pays off.

Thank's Patrick for the reply.
I hadn't seen those performance numbers and they do look impressive. I will take a look at the demo.
Regarding the feature set, I haven't met with Sales in several months but I have had 3 meetings with them since TT was released including a conference call that you were on. At no point has anybody said any of the features I've asked about won't be in TT, I've always been told they'll be coming soon.

Actually @patrickrooney, as I review the TT documentation again, it seems that several of the features I need are now part of TT, hence my frustrations may have been in vain, for which I apologize. Something I can't find though is the ADL information. I can find info on the Dashboard (so I know it's there), but not ADL itself. Can you point me in the right direction.

Hi @patrickrooney. I was just checking the old ADL forums to look something old up and saw the announcement that "This forum will be decommissioned as of 8/31/16". Can you confirm whether this means that you will no longer be able to post or whether you will be taking the forum off line and all that information will be lost?

Hello @patrickrooney,

I am still testing the new platform. The charts do not go back very far (just one year). Is this because of the demo environment or does the live mode have this restriction as well?
(I know, new futures will be added in fall 2016).

Thank you!

Hello @Malvolio,

It depends on the product. We go back 10 years for some and will go back 10 for all eventually. Here's an example of a chart with more history and as you can see I'm showing 5 years for chart data for Dec16 Eurodollar futures.

Mike

I think that the Webinar was good and Pat did a good job considering the comprehensiveness of the platform and the time limitation of one hour. To be honest, I think that the New TT will attract a different breed of traders who care about execution and convenience. I really liked the BlockTrade feature because we often get customers who wish to have IRA and personal accounts but execute in one account.

Lastly, I appreciate any technology company that puts its resources into the development of its products and the continued goal of making it better for traders. I think that TT will be serious competition in the retail space.

Thank you Terry and Mike for your efforts with the webinars!

Hi guys,

in the webinar a person asked about multi monitor support. You can easily open more workspaces by reloading the login page (after opening the first workspace). This allows you to open another workspace. If you need another workspace, just reload the login page again. I have 4 Monitors and 4 workspaces open.
At least it works in the demo environment. Hopefully in the live version too.

I think for the retail trader, and any other trader that doesn't already have access to collocated execution, this new software will be an enormous advancement, giving them access to execution that historically required a significant infrastructure and software cost to achieve. It also significantly lowers the barrier to entry for tools such as Autospreader and Algo tools such as Autotrader & ADL. All in all I think it's a big win for traders.

As a long term user of XTrader the new product seems to maintain a lot of the traditional look, feel & functionality while also capturing the advantages of modern technology. I just personally find it frustrating that I'm being pushed towards the new product even though it's obviously not complete and doesn't have several features that made XTrader the Software Titan of the proprietary trading industry.

@tturner86 I know u asked in the webinar about ADL, Trading Technologies have some amazing ADL educational tools on their website (and a brilliant Tutorial built into XTrader- in fact I believe one of the questions was referring to when that tutorial would be available in the new system) so if you want to take a look at how it all works take a look at Getting Started with ADL. Admittedly this is the legacy XTrader, but I assume the new TT will be extremely similar.

Thanks @Malvolio. One of my questions was going to be what about multi-monitors not arranged all in-line, but you answered it already.

I am trying to get an ADL webinar setup later this year, since there was a lot of interest during the webinar.

ADL is awsome. Be great to have an ADL Webinar. As I type I have 58 different ADL Algo's running.
Again a lot of the info on that page I linked would give people a great insight into what ADL is, how it works, and how to program it.

In the meantime, you can reference the existing FIO webinar on ADL in the archives from a while back

Yes, I've exchanged a few emails with Terry regarding a webinar centered around ADL and we, Trading Technologies, look forward to presenting ADL in detail when that time comes.

In the meantime, there is an excellent webinar with ADL for X_TRADER in the FIO archives and everyone is welcome to submit questions to me here. We are building a robust library of ADL topics for the Trading Technologies website but delivery of that library is several weeks out.

@Malvolio X_TRADER supports integration with other platforms while TT does not at this time.
https://www.tradingtechnologies.com/trading/apis/

Hi @patrickrooney

Do you know already when TT will support integration with other platforms?
I would like to add Bookmap to TT, but Bookmap connects to the TT API, which is only available with X_Trader Pro, as far as I know.

In addition, do you have a date when the new functionalities regarding charting will be avaiable?

Thank you!

Hello @Malvolio,

We added Chart Trading recently and are targeting the production release of Price Distribution for the end of October. Following that, we have an exciting Trader Analytics feature and this should go live in early November.

Regrading API integration, we do not expect to fully support this until Q1 of 2017.

Best regards,

Patrick

@patrickrooney
Could you reveal what Trading Technologies' plans are with regard to X_Trader vs. TT Platform? Do you intend to stop offering X_Trader in favour of the new TT?

I have the impression that TT Platform is targeted at retail traders only, lacking lots of useful X_Trader's features (e.g. keyboard trading, only "sticky" Order Types available in MD Trader) and is still "work in progress" which was released much too early (e.g. significant bugs in Simulation environment which trigger the execution of orders placed away from the current inside market).
Even the message that appears after liquidating the position ("2 contracts liquidated successfully!") does not help create an image of a professional tool. Quite the opposite.

Hello @Sheen.

We have no plans to end support for X_TRADER in the near future.

The TT platform is not intended for retail traders only and we have many professional traders actively using TT. TT is an institutional level trading platform that is also available to retail traders.

It is true that TT is not at feature parity with X_TRADER and we may never be as there were numerous features in X_TRADER that were either of marginal value or their usefulness has been replaced with other functionality in TT. You may expect to see more features from X_TRADER, as well as new features unique to TT like Options Chain and Vol Curve Manager, trading from a chart, bracket orders, OCOs, and more added every month.

We welcome your feedback on the TT platform and encourage you to use the Support feature in the platform to log your suggestions and questions.

You are always welcome to reach out me direct as well.

Best regards,

Patrick

Pat, I wanted to ask you about your experience with retail versus institutional/professional traders trading needs. Do you find that there is any difference in execution needs between professional retail traders and Pros? I truly do not see such a gap for the most part.

We service CTAs, commercial hedgers, and retail. But, I never see such difference in terms of needs as both require good execution , flexible orders management and good real time reporting. In essence, I saw the same thing with X Trader, where you had prop shops who used it along with retail customers. I don't feel that TT is any different in that regard. It has the elements to service both groups (retail and pros) quite well from what I see.

Your feedback is appreciated.

Hello Patrick,
  1. How can I get an access to your colocated h/w in Eurex to run TTSDK C/Linux apps ?
  2. Any monthly fees from h/w side ?
  3. Any monthly fees in addition to AMP Futures commissions ?

I have an account in AMP Futures.

The most important question is this:
Is it really so that when I execute an order from your Eurex colocated h/w there will be NO routed packets outside of the Frankfurt. Everything is handled in town ?
For example no need to send risk ctrl packets to my broker in US or London.

It takes nothing to be a Pig

Thanks for the question @mattz.

There are a few tools required by sell side brokers that differ from retail and large commercials and CTAs have some unique requirements but when it comes to pure execution, no, there's no difference. The same order types, the same co-lo servers, the same set of execution tools are used by the leading hedge funds and investment banks that are used by retail traders on the TT platform.

Hello @Scalpguy. Have you spoken with your broker, AMP Futures about this? They should be able to help. You may also speak directly with the TT sales team for advise and information about billing. https://www.tradingtechnologies.com/contact/#chapter-2
