Important Notes



To take full advantage of order book sharing in X_TRADER® 7.17, users are strongly encouraged to have all members of their shared order book on X_TRADER® 7.17. In order to view orders in X_TRADER® 7.12 that have been submitted on X_TRADER® 7.17, the orders must be submitted with an account that is mapped in Guardian for all users who wish to view the order or the submitted orders must be entered using the new On Behalf Of Orders functionality included in X_TRADER® 7.17. Please refer to On Behalf Of Orders for more details.

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.

A synthetic spread using a Custom Pricing Model (CPM) in the configuration will be treated as a non-tradeable spread when launched on an Autospreader® SE build earlier than 7.17.30.
