Important Notes

  • X_TRADER API 7.17.x and later no longer supports versions of X_TRADER® prior to 7.9.2.
  • Some X_TRADER® API applications may need to be updated when moving to X_TRADER® API 7.17.0 or higher. Specifically, existing order routing applications will need to be updated if they are to be used in environments where users are configured with multiple connections to a given TT Gateway, such as the TT Multibroker environment. For a complete details, see Using the X_TRADER® API in Multi-Connection Configurations.
  • The ability to inject Start-of-Day (SOD) Records and Manual Fills has been deprecated beginning in X_TRADER® API 7.17.0. This functionality has been added to TT API 7.17.1.

Why Should I Upgrade?

The installation process was enhanced in X_TRADER® API 7.17.65 to sign the TT Excel Add-Ins so that users don't have to lower their security settings to utilize them (Ref 232060). This inadvertently introduced an issue which requires users to have an X_TRADER® Pro license to use RTD. As a result, this enhancement was backed out as part of this patch and will be reintroduced in future release. Customers who upgraded to X_TRADER® API 7.17.65 and encounter this issue are advised to upgrade to X_TRADER® API 7.17.66.
