Important Notes

Significant changes have been made to the Autospreader® configuration window since 7.12.x and this includes the deprecation of properties that may be involved in your Autospreader® strategies. Please refer to Autospreader Features and Parameter Changes in X_TRADER® 7.17 for more details.

The Stopwatch Block in ADL has been re-designed for greater flexibility and efficiency. If an ADL strategy contains a previous version of the Stopwatch Block, TT strongly recommends replacing the block with a newer version provided in X_TRADER® 7.17 (or higher). Please refer to Updating the ADL Stopwatch Block for important details.

Algo SE 7.17 has been enhanced to support the ability to select Broker (in MultiBroker mode), Customer Default, and Order Gateway for each Instrument Block present in an algo. If you log into multiple flavors of a Gateway, you will need to specify the Gateway of your choice for some Instrument Blocks on your algo templates and re-save them.

Installation Notes

When upgrading from existing versions, TT strongly recommends making a backup of your workspaces in a separate location.
  1. X_TRADER® 7.17.x only supports workspaces from previous versions of X_TRADER® 7.12.x and X_TRADER® 7.11x.

  2. X_TRADER® 7.17.x only supports upgrades from previous versions of X_TRADER® 7.12.x and X_TRADER® 7.11x.

  3. If your current software is older than X_TRADER® 7.11.x, TT recommends uninstalling your existing old software and performing a clean install.

Enhancements

  1. Algo Dashboard
    1. Trading Technologies is working toward adding decimals to the price display of select products but this is not yet fully supported. When transitioning from non-decimal to decimal price format, previously-built Algo Templates will retain Order Price Variables in non-decimal format, which is no longer correct. To prevent accidental usage of such templates, the Order Price Variable field will be cleared out every time the template is selected on the Algo Dashboard. (Ref 221848)

  2. Autotrader
    1. Added the 'Order GW' column in the Autotrader grid that can be used to select the desired exchange Gateway or Autospreader® SE server per row. (Ref 223210)

  3. Fills
    1. Enabled fill mods (changes to Account Number, FFT2, FFT3, Order Tag and User Tag) on fully filled orders in the top orders pane of the Orders and Fills Window (OFW). Changes may not be made to these fields after the fill is confirmed. (Ref 222780)

  4. Floating Order Book
    1. Added FFT2, FFT3, Order Tag and Trigger Price Quantity (TPrice Qty) to Floating Order Book. (Ref 217223)

  5. MD Trader
    1. Removed yellow coloration from the NetPosition pane in MD Trader. (Ref 222752)

    2. TradeSounds has been re-enabled allowing users to assign distinct beeping sounds to alert them about market activity. (Ref 223233)

Fixes

  1. General
    1. Minor changes have been made to the End User License Agreement (EULA). (Ref 223960)

  2. ADL
    1. Fixed an issue where the X_TRADER® control panel could freeze while waiting for ADL to launch. (Ref 223110)

    2. When the ADL Icon is clicked on the X_TRADER® Control Panel, ADL will display a window that shows the initialization progress. (Ref 223111)

    3. Fixed an issue where ADL would not ignore unmatched fills for exchange traded spread legs. (Ref 223241)

  3. Alerts Manager
    1. Fixed an issue where complete conditions for alerts in Alerts Manager were not saving correctly. (Ref 223037)

  4. Autospreader
    1. Fixed an issue where the Queue Holder button did not display in the Autospreader® MD Trader. (Ref 222581)

    2. Fixed an issue where Autospreader® spreads launched to a server in previous workspaces launch to the desktop after upgrading X_TRADER. (Ref 223041)

    3. Fixed an issue where a non-working Autospreader® order does not get removed and continues to display in X_TRADER® as a stale order. (Ref 223082)

    4. Fixed a rare timing issue where the Autospreader® MD Trader® continues to display as non-tradeable after the Autospreader® SE is ready to accept orders. (Ref 223123)

  5. Common
    1. Fixed an issue where corrupt custom name files can cause X_TRADER® to crash during startup. (Ref 222767)

  6. Customer Defaults
    1. Fixed an issue where order entry windows did not display the customer defaults that are configured for user when the user disables account permission in TTUS . (Ref 222715)

    2. Fixed an issue where modifications to customer defaults were not preserved following an upgrade. (Ref 223035)

  7. Floating Order Entry
    1. Fixed an issue where saved filter options were cleared following an upgrade. (Ref 223155)

  8. Logging
    1. Fixed an issue that generated excessive logging. (Ref 223811)

  9. MD Trader
    1. Fixed an issue where the vertical scroll bar did not save correctly in the workspace. (Ref 223003)

    2. Fixed an issue that led to sluggish behavior of the MD Trader® flyout window used for configuring active Autospreader® configurations. (Ref 223287)

    3. Fixed an issue where Time & Sales may show incomplete information when the accumulator interval property is enabled. (Ref 223971)

Known Issues

  1. Market Explorer
    1. Using X_TRADER® 7.17 with Algo SE 7.3 is supported, but this combination will no longer allow you to select Order Gateway flavor for each Instrument Block present in an algo. This is because Instrument Explorer in X_TRADER® 7.17 no longer shows Order Gateway flavors. However, if you upgrade both X_TRADER® and Algo SE to 7.17, you will be able to access an enhanced Algo Variable Pane on the Algo Dashboard, which will allow you to set order routing information for each Instrument Block present in an algo.
