Hi @TradingTech Patrick,

I'd like to get us started with a few of the questions I've seen a lot of FIO members asking, so we can consolidate them into this thread:

1. Which operating systems/mobile platforms is the TT charting and execution platform compatible with?

2. What brokers are supported?

3. Does TT have a plan to sunset the older X_Trader product? Will it continue to receive updates? Can you share details?

4. Is there a free trial for the TT platform? How does a user signup for it if so?

The other members can take it from here...

Thanks,
Mike

"4. Yes, free 30 day trials of the TT platform are available and you may use this link or simply type "trade.tt" into a browser."

Hi Patrick,

a) How is this 30 day free trial any different compared to the free 10 min delayed demo account that I've been using?

b) Will the free 10 min delayed demo accounts continue to be available and if not will the algos that I've developed be erased without warning?

c) Is there a tentative release date for ADL to come out of "beta"?

d) Can you share any details on the new Analytics Block?

e) I've heard that the pre trade credit check will be stored with the algos,can you explain the difference in routing and it's positive effects on order execution latency between TT Web ADL and Legacy ADL?

f) Can the TT Algo " TT Bracket" be combined with or triggered by user constructed algos? If so is this a function of the yet to be released one algo triggering another?

Thanks!

Hello @mpxtreme. Thank you for the questions.

a) How is this 30 day free trial any different compared to the free 10 min delayed demo account that I've been using?
>>> It is the same. If you wish to get a live demo you must have a relationship with a FCM. @mattz is active in this forum and may be able to assist you with that.

b) Will the free 10 min delayed demo accounts continue to be available and if not will the algos that I've developed be erased without warning?
>>> You need to create your own company in the TT system to easily transfer your demo logic to a live TT account. The 10 minute delayed data demo environment will still be available when you go live, however, your credentials will change and will not longer be associated with your demo credentials and logic created there. You may work with TT support or support with your FCM to move your algos in demo to live production. You'll need to act on this prior to creating a live account.

c) Is there a tentative release date for ADL to come out of "beta"?
>>> Yes. The beta tag will be removed from ADL in the next few weeks.

d) Can you share any details on the new Analytics Block?
>>> The ADL Analytics Block will not be released for a few months and there's not much to say about it. If you would like to build some of the functionality on your own, there are numerous sources for help doing that in our Community page.

e) I've heard that the pre trade credit check will be stored with the algos,can you explain the difference in routing and it's positive effects on order execution latency between TT Web ADL and Legacy ADL?
>>> Making the credit check in the algo itself saves a hop as the order does not need to route through risk. You've a more direct path to market which reduces latency.

f) Can the TT Algo " TT Bracket" be combined with or triggered by user constructed algos? If so is this a function of the yet to be released one algo triggering another?
>>> No, you may not link an algo to the TT Bracket order type. You are correct in that this requires "algos driving algos" functionality which will be released by the end of the year.

Thank Pat. In order to receive a demo you would need to ask for it here: https://optimusfutures.com/TradingTechnologies-Platform.php we also prepared a series of videos along with the TT team to help you through the education of the platform: [yt]https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOGjoJXp0cmo4feMrO_dW648IkYIK5fIR[/yt]

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.


mattz View Post
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.


TradingTech View Post
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.

@TradingTech and @mattz based upon these replies you seem to have a specific definition in mind when you talk about retail and professional traders. I'm curious what that definition actually is?

Personally I think of a professional trader as somebody who trades for a living, be that for an institution, prop shop or even for their own account and a retail trader as somebody who doesn't treat it as a career. The reason I ask is, under my definition, I think there are very few retail traders paying $1500/month or more for trading software, never mind high end collocation. As such I think your definition is probably different from mine?

@SMCJB I would be more than happy to discuss this with you, however this is a thread dedicated to TT questions and I would like to keep it as such. I am concerned that this kind of topic will attract many comments, and again I want to keep it "clean" for technical questions. If you create new thread, I would be more than happy to address it there. Thank you for your understanding.

@SMCJB Retail, as defined by the CFTC as well as FINRA, is a very broad group.

Retail Customer: A customer that does not qualify as an eligible contract participant under Section 1a(12) of the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 USC 1a(12). An individual with total assets that do not exceed $10 million, or $5 million if the individual is entering into an agreement, contract, or transaction to manage risk, would be considered a retail customer.
CFTC Glossary - CFTC

I'll also note that the TT platform does not cost $1500. TT Standard starts at $50. https://www.tradingtechnologies.com/resources/pricing/

Actually its a "Trading Technologies / Patrick Rooney (Product Manager) - Ask Me Anything (AMA)" thread and I was specifically asking Pat (and you) a question. I moved it to this thread from the old TT thread for that reason and intentionally didn't add it one of the dozens of pro vs non-pro threads.

Thanks Pat for the clarification. I was aware of the CFTC definition, and also of the CME definition (which is different again) and some brokers who have other slightly differing definitions. (Of course the equities side of the business have yet other definitions).

My apologies on the price comment, as you know I come from the XTrader world and think of the subscription pricing as opposed to the per lot pricing. The $50 price point is actually pretty amazing and does open up the system to low volume retail traders in a way that software of this standard has rarely (if ever) done before.

Hi there,
Am crossing this thread over

Am v concerned that time and sales data on the OTC market can move prices and yet be unreported on the data feed. Case in point 15.30pm today on the bund (example shown in the conversation thread in the link above). Over 10k of OTC volume was reported by TT after a massive price move. I suspect this OTC volume may have been a driver in the move higher, but was then reported after the fact. Please advise.

OTC trades are not reported in real time. Brokers have a window to report OTC transactions and this window can be quite large like 20 minutes. Placing this OTC transaction in a live price stream would generate time stamps that are out of synch and volume spikes for transactions that occurred minutes, sometimes several minutes ago.

Ok right, so we're getting somewhere.

Using the specific example that I quoted, with an attachment to show what happened at 15.30pm (UK time) on the bund today, are you saying that this 10k+ of volume, with the time it occurred, and the price that it occurred at, was NOT accurate? That this 10k of volume had gone into the market at a different time and price than was displayed on TT?

I understand that it is delayed and there is a 20 minute window. So when you are displaying this OTC volume on your time and sales, is the time and price that you display for the OTC volume simply showing the time and price that you received the info, as opposed to when the transaction actually took place on the exchange between two parties?

Sorry, I should have made clear that a black background indicates an OTC quote-these are my settings for an OTC quote! I still cannot access the type of OTC trade that apparently is a column in the TandS, but is unavailable in the TandS attached to the price ladder.

I understand that it is delayed and there is a 20 minute window. So when you are displaying this OTC volume on your time and sales, is the time and price that you display for the OTC volume simply showing the time and price that you received the info, as opposed to when the transaction actually took place on the exchange between two parties?

So considering that 10k worth of transactions entered into the Bund market before a big market move, but was not reported by TT (not your fault-it's the Exchange), then as far as I can see then there is still a hidden layer of volume in futures trading. And considering that this hidden layers consists of really big traders who actually move the markets, this kind of calls into question the usefulness of datafeeds and volume etc doesn't it?

>>> No, you may not link an algo to the TT Bracket order type. You are correct in that this requires "algos driving algos" functionality which will be released by the end of the year.

Best regards-

Hi Pat,

Follow up to the answers..

a) If it's the same..why the "30 day" limit...has something changed compared to when I signed up a few months ago?

b) If I do not sign up with an FCM and continue to use the current delayed demo as I have for several months...will I receive a "cut off" notice?

c) Does that mean the following blocks/features will be released to the "live" accounts?I ask because they are currently not available in the delayed demo and both environments are
said to be nearly identical minus the data feed.

Trade is Take or Hit
Log Block
Alert Block
MD Trader size filter sounds tab.

Thanks
mpxtreme

No, nothing has changed with the delayed data demo. We have not established a cut-off period for it yet and do not have target date for establishing it. When it is established, yes, you'll have plenty of warning that your trial is about to end.

Regarding the features you've asked about...

Trade is Take or Hit
>>> We expect to release this in the next few months.
Log Block
>>> Will be part of the Alerts Block.
Alert Block
>>> The Alerts Block will be released this Friday and will print messages to the "Alerts" tab while running algos in the ADL canvas.
MD Trader size filter sounds tab.
>>> I'm not certain what you're asking for here. Are you requesting a sound alert for specific trades sizes?

Thank you for the questions.

Thanks for clarifying @mpxtreme. At this time, we have no plans to implement Trade Sounds in TT.

We are building a very elaborate, server based, Alerts Manager and you should be able to replicate your desired functionality there. At this time, I don't have an ETA for Alerts Manager.

Hello @TradingTech

I would like to know how I can bring up a chart of a continuous futures contract. If I choose the December contract for ES and then the daily interval the chart goes only back to the beginning of this year. For the FDAX I get only data back to May this year. Please see the attachment.

You mentioned earlier that it is possible to get until 10 years of data for some products:


I am in the live environment of TT.

Thank you!

Bad to hear that. I thought you would offer at least for the most important instruments yet historical charts, based on your statement:

Will it be possible to change the chart interval of the continuous futures contract too and the time going back (for example to create a 60 Min. Chart going back 120 days)? Thank you!

I have designed, backtested, debugged and now routinely deploy an algorithm which I use on NT7 profitably.

However, in certain scenarios with fast moving price action, I occasionally run into problems with hung orders and naked orders, with the order placement at times occurring on the wrong side of the current price. Is TT better equipped to deal with these scenarios?

Thank you for the question Silent Warrior. Speed is likely your problem. When deploying automated hedging strategies it is imperative to get your hedge order to market quickly. "Hedge Latency" is a term commonly used to describe this issue and hedge latency may be considered the internal time your front end took to respond to a fill and submit the hedge order. The TT platform has been recording times, in production for customer transactions, for hedge latency below 100 and even below 50 microseconds. This is extremely fast and one of the reasons we refer to TT as the fastest commercially available futures execution platform.

Here is a link to a blog post by our CEO, Rick Lane, where he discusses these incredible times. https://www.tradingtechnologies.com/blog/2016/03/15/a-look-back-on-tts-first-year/

If you are running our spreading application, Autospreader, and your hedge order does not get filled, TT has tools to help you manage that scenario. You may read about "Hedge Manager" in the following link.

https://library.tradingtechnologies.com/trade/auto-hedge-manager.html

Hello @bomberone. This post got by me and I apologize for the delay in responding.

You are using our 7x infrastructure and depending upon your FCM, we have no control of your historical data there. Some FCMs database FMDS, others do not.

With the TT platform, we control the data and we're working on uploading 10 years of historical data. For some exchanges, that will be tick data and for others it will be longer time frames.

@trading_Tech

I do not see Trade is Take/Hit in the new TT ADL Msg Info Extractor Block nor the Value Extractor block.
Are you saying this is available in the subscribed live version of the new platform but not in the free delayed demo environment accounts?

Thanks

Another question...a very important one actually, which will determine if I'm going to rely on ADL... before spending the next several months in development scratching my head.

In the live subscribed accounts of new TT ADL... is TT transmitting the CME MDP 3.0 data protocol as sent by the CME with the "aggressor" side of trade execution reporting?

Thanks

We are using CME MDP 3.0 however the aggressor tag is not passed in ADL.

Thanks for the clarification.

In relation to execution and tick to trade latency, is the new TT data feed non-coalesced since it is now provided by TT directly instead of AMP's X Trader/ADL solution which is coalesced data?

It doesn't make much sense reacting to stale quotes using ADL if execution is a major part of and greatly effects your alpha in the latter solution.

Details appreciated on that new TT data feed architecture.We know that no 2 markets transmit in the exact same way.

Thanks

I'm interested to know when TT's patent for the static DOM expires. I've done a few searches on google, but I'm not turning up any results that list an expiration date.

Can you tell me when TT's patent for the static DOM is supposed to expire?

Could you please be more specific? Patents expire after a certain amount of time. I don't know what you mean by saying that the key areas "are not up for review for several years". I'm asking about patents that already exist and not about future patents that you guys may try to apply for or about any provisional patents that have not currently been decided on.

How about this, when does the last of the current patents for TT's static DOM expire, since there are multiple patents in play?

Hi Patrick @TradingTech

I use x_trader and have done for the last 5 years.

I've had a look at the demo of the new TT platform and there's some basic features that I have outlined below that don't appear to be present. Is this because you deemed them not necessary or are there plans for them to be implemented?

1. MD trader recentering - not able to create recenter groups, or globally recenter with double click.

2. Doesn't appear to display p&l in ticks in fill window.

3. No default orders. So after entering a stop order it doesn't automatically revert back to limit order.

4. No way to change the order quantity buttons in MD trader (1,5,10,50,100). This seems strange as I can't imagine someone using the 100 will also be using the 1 and 5, and vice versa.

Thanks

Hi Pat

...is there a FootPrint or more precisely a bid to ask (diagonally and horizontally) traded volume comparison block planned?
I brought this feature request up last year and was told that it was being considered as a new historical data block since many of the ADL logic questions that people are asking in the TT forum are attempting to build this logic from scratch. Except I have yet to see a reply or news concerning that request.

Hi,

Small contribution to the file.


I used X_Trader with satisfaction.

TT has potential and lets say good things for the future..

Strongly that it is developed to the max and all in final version and desktop version too.

With improved Market Profile (split session, split period, composite according to a specified date ...)

Improved volume profile

Adding the footprint

Adding function in the parameters of the indicators, studies ...

Added functions for drawing and configuration options (link the trace with MDtrader, and also with other graphics ...)


I use it and you can see videos on my youtube channel "Do Trading".


Good trading at all

Hello @mpxtreme,

You certainly should have received a response in TT Community. I'll look into that. Regarding your FootPrint request, I'd like some more detail towards exactly what you're looking for. We're working on the TT Analytics Block now and I'd like to verify if we've captured your exact request.

Appreciate the quick response!

There are a number of different styles of a Footprint chart,among the most popular are versions by MarketDelta(IRT),Fin-Alg and others that can be found on this site or across the web with google images.The request that was made for this chart type and more importantly a block that I called a Price Array block or a Statistics Array Block can be found in the following thread with my mention of those 2 requests and the details of why it's a much needed ADL block and chart type.

Hi,

Is it possible to have the EUREX exchange in the demo version (simulation 10 min delay?).

Think you eventually introduce market statistics like TRIN, ESINX, DECL, ADV, TICK ...?

Thank you.

Hello @Domy,

We do not anticipate having Eurex in he delayed data environment anytime soon. The indicators you have asked for are not on the immediate roadmap and we cannot give you a date for delivery of that either.

Best regard,

TT

@TradingTech

Is TT supporting >10 levels market depth on eligible CME futures (this has to do with the MBO rollout)

Hello @flipper7 & @SMCJB

CME only supports 10 levels of aggregated market book depth.

MDP 3.0 - Market Data Snapshot Full Refresh - Electronic Platform Information Console - Confluence

For detailed depth, TT supports 20 levels and will move that up to 50 later this year.

Sorry I should have read @flipper7 question better. My interest is with regards to the MBO/Market by Order functionality rather than depth of market. My understanding is that MBO* is the exchange telling you what EPIQ tries to estimate. As such anybody interested in EPIQ should be even more interested in MBO. I view this as an enhancement of the "Number of Orders at Price" functionality. While I'm interested in your response in general, I'm specifically interested in it as related to ADL. (As a side question, will we ever get "Number of Orders at Price" in ADL?)

*As you may know this functionality has been available on ICE, at least thru WebICE for decades.

@TradingTech

Here are the MBO specs:

cmegroup.com/confluence/display/EPICSANDBOX/Market+by+Order

You're correct in saying aggregated depth via MDP 3.0 is 10 levels but instruments with MBO allow you to display the entire book along with actual position in queue which @SMCJB is referring to

Hi guys,

Due to an unfortunate technical problem, there is no recording to post. We will work with TT to add another AMA event on the schedule soon, and will update the thread when we can confirm the new date.

Hello Patrick,

I noticed that some things were changed in TT, e.g. now you can zoom in and out of MD Trader. But this (zooming out) makes the fonts a bit "blurred". Perhaps TT can take a look into it?
Thank you!

*****
Ive just noticed that you can zoom in and out in charts too, great future! With continuous futures contracts this will be awsome!

Hello @Nedster,

Yes, you may chart exchange defined and synthetic spreads in the TT platform. Here's a very basic ES / YM spread in Autospreader and in Charts.

TT state on their website that there is a transactional pricing plan for X_Trader of $0.30 per contract with a monthly cap. I even got a list of FCMs from TT that apparently offer it. However, any broker/FCM I approached says they only offer X_Trader on a monthly subscription.

I would be grateful if someone could give an example of a broker that could facilitate transactional pricing for X_Trader, please?

I will do it, but it is really a simple question - is there any broker that would offer me X_Trader with transactional pricing?

@TradingTech

Are there any differences between X_Trader's plugin called OCO Trader Ltd. and TT Bracket order in new TT Desktop with regard to the following:
- a parent limit order is placed in MD Trader -> connectivity on the local workstation is lost - does the parent order continue to rest at the exchange? When it is executed, are child orders (limit and stop) automatically placed?
- a parent order has been executed -> connectivity on the local workstation is lost - do the child orders continue to rest at the exchange? When one of them is executed, is the other one cancelled?

I would be grateful for explaining this. I understand the OCO mechanism is managed by an algo on TT's server whereas the actual orders are on exchange servers. However, I am interested to know what happens in case of the above loss of connectivity scenarios in each platform (i.e. X_Trader with OCO Trader Ltd. and TT Desktop, respectively).

Slightly off topic, but Trading Technologies just posted the following interview with Margie Teller, a former CME floor trader and inductee into the FIA Futures Hall of Fame, on their website and I found it to be a very interesting read.

Throughout my time in fintech, Ive had the privilege of working with some strong female role models. However, and specifically in the world of trading, the female point of view rarely gets exposure.

What did everyone think of the webinar?

I see a lot of questions about Autospreaders, what they are and how they work. I thought the first 10-15 mins of this gave an excellent overview of this, and from the people known to have the best autospreader in the industry. The rest of the presentation was very person/question specific but that is to be expected with an "Ask my Anything" format.

A little surprised that 2 years after launch there's still XTrader functionality that is "coming soon".

Hello Patrick,

How does "TT Desktop" handle multi-core CPUs? Im not an IT expert but as far as I can see "TT Desktop" makes use of a multi-core CPU. So as Im going to buy a new PC, regarding the CPU cores, is it: the more the better?
In the help library I couldnt find anything regarding the CPU recommendations.

Thank you!

Each window runs in a separate process, which can be distributed across multiple CPUs, so the more, the better.

If TT will add the market replay if someone will write in the future a manual about ADL programming and to add in the T&S the best bid and best offer in a separate column. About the average position example: short at 1400 1 lot short again at 1300 2 lots New average position 1333.33 the market goes to 1200 bot 2 lots at 1200 is it possible the red square to come back to 1400 i still having a 1 lot short @ 1400 LIFO instead of FIFO feature ?
Regards

About TT the best support ever.

Hi there,
Am using TT X Trader Version 7.17.67.10
Have used Neon/Easy Screen in the past and it had a great few tweaks on the volume profile on the Dom.
The most important was the ability to dynamically display the volume profile depending on what was onscreen.
At the moment, TT only has manually set limits (Volume at Price-Bar Quantity) that displays volume profile size based on this setting. Works ok but in a fast market with price moving in new areas, the fixed limit is a huge problem as you have to go in and manually change the bar quantity size which clearly doesn't work too well in fast markets!
Is there any way that the volume profile can be more dynamic, and update it's bar size relative to what is being displayed on screen rather than having fixed bar quantities? Hope that makes some sort of sense.

Keab

Thank you for the question. On the TT platform you may reset Volume At Price (VAP) on MD Trader. This is not available on X_TRADER. Please see this release note from November 12, 2017 for details.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Is there a video anywhere to demonstrate what you mean, or a demo to look at? I'm not talking about resetting volume at price to zero and wiping all the data, I'm talking about a dynamic way for the volume profile to update itself visually depending on what is nearby. For example if price has been stuck in a bell curve all day then you will need to have the volume at price levels set quite high if there are combinations of 6k/7k/5k/6.5k in a bell curve. If price moves quickly away and starts trading at 50/90/110 per price level then you're stuck with the same way of looking at the profile that bears no relation to the new volume at price. As such the graphical element of being able to see high or low volume nodes is completely lost. Hope that makes sense!

Regards,
Keab
