Customized Workspaces


A workspace is an arrangement or configuration of widgets tailored to your trading preferences. It contains a collection of widgets you use to view market data, enter and manage orders, and track fills and positions. You can create a single workspace for all of your trading, or you can create multiple workspaces with widgets suited to specific trading needs.

Building a Workspace

For example, here is a workspace (pictured above) focused on monitoring and trading 10-year note contracts. It uses two MD Trader widgets to monitor two ZN contracts, a Market Grid widget to monitor all ZN product contracts, the Order Book widget to track working orders, and the Audit Trail widget to display all account activity.

Market Grid


The Market Grid displays market data for numerous instruments in a grid-like format and gives you the ability to quickly trade any of those instruments with an order ticket. You can organize the display of instruments to your liking by using tabs. You can also display market depth for an instrument with a simple mouse click.

Order Entry


Get your orders to market faster and easier with an array of trading tools, including the industry-standard MD Trader® ladder. MD Trader is the industry-leading interface that provides single-click order entry for an instrument while displaying market depth against a static, vertical price axis. The static price display gives you a visual sense of market movement over a period of time or relative to other markets.

Get go-anywhere charting, including all popular chart styles and indicators—with free historical data included at no additional cost. The Chart widget on the TT platform fully integrates charting and analytics into the Trade app by blending historical time series data with continuous real-time market data updates. The Chart uses the same price feed as the market data and order entry widgets (e.g., MD Trader), so the prices on the Chart are identical to what appears in those widgets.

Automate your strategies, from simple to complex.

Empower your spread trading with TT’s next-generation Autospreader®. View and trade disparate markets as one with advanced smart order routing. Use Autospreader® to create and trade your own synthetic calendar, inter-product, or inter-exchange spreads. You can define the legs of the spread, then preview the implied market for the spread based on the outright legs. When enter orders in the implied market, Autospreader works the legs to achieve the spread setting parameters.

Algorithmic Trading


Choose from built-in and third-party algos, build your own with ADL®, or leverage TT APIs to create and execute black-box strategies. Traders can execute synthetic orders via the TT platform using TT Algos. TT Algos provide functionality that is not natively supported by the exchange, allowing you to reduce market impact and improve the timing of conditional execution. For example, using TT Algos, you can can:

  • Start orders at a certain time
  • Trigger orders on price action
  • Trail the market
  • Slice orders into smaller sub-orders
  • Cancel orders at a certain time
  • Submit or cancel orders based on the fills of other orders
