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.

Yield Outputs are now standardized to a single format (see Autospreader® Enhancement section for additional information).

Enhancements

  1. General
    1. Added the ability to choose between Rolling Settlement Dates and Absolute Settlement Dates for Canadian Futures. Rolling Settlement Dates will add three weekdays to the System Date recorded at the startup of X_TRADER. Holidays are not included. Absolute Settlement Dates continue to require users to input a specific settlement date. (Ref 231757)

    2. Rebranded the X_TRADER® login page with a new look and feel. (Ref 231817)

  2. Autospreader
    1. X_TRADER will now show a synthetic indicative price as long as any of the legs are not open and publishing an indicative price. (Ref 231759)

    2. Yield Outputs are now standardized to a singe format. Thereby eliminating the need to use different 'multipliers' to equate the yield of different instruments. (Ref 231760)

  3. Wholesale Trades
    1. Based on Euronext requirements for Cross orders; Auto RFQ is now enabled by default when selecting Cross or Guaranteed Cross order types. (Ref 231789)

Fixes
