Yes, exactly. How do I remove the default prices and only leave the user defined price column to display. I can't get rid of the default column.

I installed OCO Trader, and it works good. The manual says that it's only for X-trader pro ? Is that correct ?

Meaning that with the free version from Velocity we can't use OCO trader ?


OCO Trader LTD - X_TRADER

I'm trying to define with OCO an ATM with 3 cars, one that takes profit after 6 ticks, 2 remaining go Breakeven, +1 and the 2nd takes profit after 10 ticks and the 3rd keeps running with a trailing stop of 3 ticks behind and once it's at 15 ticks profit it trails with 2 ticks behind.

Can somebody help me how to define that in the OCO ?? thanks.

I also read that TT datafeed is only providing data once in 100ms ? Is that correct ?

Incorrect on the 100ms updates. The TT feed is unfiltered.

You'll need to use Multiple Levels to do that -

31. The Multiple Levels setup window is used to configure the Multiple Level templates. These templates can then be applied to individual contracts within OCO Traderís main window using the Multiple Levels checkbox. Multiple Levels places a percentage of each offsetting limit and/or stop orders at the specified tick offset. The order of execution starts with the level with the highest percent allocated to it and sequentially distributes based on which level is furthest from fulfilling its allocation percent. Any ties go to the lower level number.

Jason,

You asked about setting a decimal in the emini. I've talked to tt about this and they showed me how.

In MD Properties / MD Advanced check 'Enable User-Defined Price Column' and set 'Display type' to Decimal. Then, 3/4 down that page, check 'Price formatting' and set your Decimal location to 2 and Max digits to 6. This will convert ESZ0 of 117950 to ESZ0 1179.50.

Also, you can then hide the default price column by putting your mouse pointer at the top of MD Trader and grabbing the right edge of the default price column. then drag the edge to the left.

the EPIQ is very cool. But I really need the OCO plugin which means paying $650/month. Hopefully my volume will increase to the point where it's cheaper to pay the $650/month fee instead of higher commissions.

Hi. I trade by X_Trader free + VF. OCO plugin is free as well to use some really professional order type like ICE, GTC, GTD, TSM, etc. I agree EPIQ is cool but also to be able to put Iceberg Orders (for example 4 lots shown as 1 in the book) is usefull when trade during some hours of the day, or for a fast exit strategy.
The only problem I have is need to reboot X_Trader Free to change market. Not big issue for me as CME servers cover also NYMEX and some others.

Sorry not to be able for pm yet



You can change market only by reboot X_Trader as free VF licence. When the window login appear I put my username and pwd. Then by the button 'options' (not the login button on left side) I set the market exchange I want. At moment I have CME CBOT EUREX ICE but I can only set once per login. These markets are preset by VF (a part of ICE requested later), and in some case you find also backup servers CME-A EUREX-A etc. (failure and disaster remedial). In my case as CME servers cover NYMEX and COMEX, I have by login in CME all the contracts I usually trade. In some rare case I open on Eurex and CME I use to control the whole position on web-customer-portal.

Syl,
Thanks for your feedback. However at least with my client the Eurex exchange is not listed at TT Logins; I can only access to CME or CBOT.

I think VF add Eurex as preset for acc founded in euro. It's only an idea. I am (almost) sure you can ask to add Eurex and Ice w/o problem. At moment I am studing Brent on ICE, as commisions are far lower then CL/CME and volumes are intersting. X_Trader seems to fly on this market but on Eurex I experienced several issues.
