By default the most common columns are visible in the Order Ticket. Many more columns are available and can be added in the Order Ticket Properties, Columns tab.

Default Columns

  1. Market The market for the order.
  2. Account Name of the account for the order.
  3. Buy/Sell Whether or not the order is a buy or a sell.
  4. Volume The size of the order.
  5. Price Type The type of order being submitted:
      Limit- The order must be filled at the designated price or better.
      Market- The order will fill at the best market price available.
      Pit- Pit trades are for bookkeeping purposes only. If you trade in the pit and electronically you can book your pit trades through the front-end. They are reflected in P&L but aren't submitted to an exchange.
      Stop Limit- A stop order can have a limit price so that when it is triggered it is submitted as a limit order.
      Stop Market- If a stop order doesn't have a limit price associated with it then it will be submitted as a market order when triggered.
      Stop Same Limit- A stop limit order where the stop trigger price and stop limit price are the same.
      Market If Touched- Behaves like a limit order with the exception that when it trades it turns into a market order. This means that some of the fills can be at a worse price then what was entered. Hit- Hit is for hitting the Bid or Offer.
      Join- Join is for joining the best bid/offer.
      RFQ- Will send a request for quote to the exchange.
  6. Limit Price The limit price of the order. If the order is a market order then limit price will be zero.
  7. Stop Price The trigger price of a stop order. A stop order becomes a market or limit order when the market trades through the stop trigger price.
