Activation On Market Mode Order

RSS
On Market Mode Activation Orders will be held (i.e. suspended) in the T4 FIX API server until the specific market mode event (as entered with the Activation Value - Tag 10103) occurs. At this activation point, the order is released to the exchange.

An Activation Order is entered with the New Order Single (Tag 35=D) message. Following are the most relevant tags to build an On Market Mode Activation Order.

Tag 10102=4Activation TypeSpecifier of Activation Order - On Market Mode
Tag 10103Activation ValueMarket Mode Event to activate the order
Tag 48SecurityIDMarket for which the order is sent
Tag 55SymbolContract for which the order is sent
Tag 207SecurityExchangeExchange for which the order is sent
Tag 167SecurityTypeSecurity Type (e.g. Futures) of this specific market

The format of the ActivationValue (Tag 10103) is: "Market Mode;Cancel Time"

ModeRequired. The market mode to activate the order on.
Cancel TimeOptional. The time to cancel the order if the order is still working or not yet activated. The time can be specified as either a full date time in the format "dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss" or as a number of seconds from now.

Examples of ActivationValue:

  • "Open" - activates when the market opens.
  • "PreOpen" - activates when the market goes pre-open.
  • "Open;05 Jul 2012 18:00:00" - activates the order when the market opens. The order is cancelled at the specified time (all times are U.S. Central Time) if it has not triggered yet and also if it has triggered but is still working. Using the datetime format of "dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss" is highly recommended.
  • "Open;100" - activates the order when the market opens. The second paramter specifies the cancel time but as a number of seconds from the current time. In this case it is 100 seconds from now. At that time the order will be cancelled if it is working or not yet triggered.

Sample

In this example, the activation order is submitted, accepted by the T4 FIXAPI and awaits activation by the trigger of Market Open. When the market opens, the order is submitted to the exchange as a market order.
