    Enhancements

    1. Order Entry
      1. Introduced in TT User Setup 7.17.85.7 in conjunction with X_TRADER® 7.17.81, when the TTUS user level setting "EU Config 1" is enabled; users are restricted from entering native order types on EU exchanges. The "EU Config 1" setting has been enhanced to allow the configuration of a "Preventative Stop."

        When the EU Config 1 setting is enabled, admins can now enter a numerical value in the setting text box; which designates the "ticks away from entry price" that the Stop Limit (preventative stop) order will be placed. Valid values in the EU Config 1 text box are 1 - 1000.

        IMPORTANT: if a numerical value is entered in the text box, native EU order entry WILL BE allowed; and upon entry a Stop Limit order will be placed (based on the ticks away from entry price value). If the text box is empty, zero, a special character or greater than 1000; the current functionality of restricting native order entry for EU orders will be enforced.

        When the Stop Limit order is entered, it does NOT have an OCO relationship with the original order. The Stop Limit order must be managed by each user.

        Preventative Stop orders are NOT submitted when the original order is synthetic, only native order types support this function. (Ref 234783)

    2. Staged Orders
      1. Added the ability to drag-n-drop fills from the OFW's Orders and Fills panes into a launched Staged Order ticket or MD Trader; to add a "Staged Manual Fill." When dragged in, the Staged Manual Fill selection in the Order Templates is seeded and the Staged Manual Fill confirmation dialog is invoked. Clicking OK to the confirmation dialog will apply the dragged fill as a Staged Manual Fill, deducting the Manual Fill quantity from the total order quantity of the Staged Order. Fill candidates must match the Staged Order instrument and side (buy/sell) and only a single fill may be dragged at once, multi-select is not supported. (Ref 234772)

      2. Enhanced the Staged Order Customer seeding. When a Parent Staged Order sent via FIX Adapter has an account provided, when claimed; the corresponding Customer Default row and all its values shall be seeded in the executing brokers order entry window (Order Pane and MDT). In order to seed properly, the Account provided must have a 1:1 relationship with a Customer Row; per Market. If multiple matches are identified for a given Market, the default "STAGED" Customer will be seeded (current functionality). (Ref 234801)
