Correct settings for ES and TT-FIX?

Postby SP » 13 Feb 2012

If i connect to TT-Fix i get wrong settings for the ES. The price is displayed as 134.575.

I watched the video under https://www.multicharts.com/market-data-feeds/ --> tradingtechnologies. But at minute 01:48 it shows the same error with a price of 124,700 instead of 1247,00 (same for the CL at minute 02:54).

I tried different settings in the Quotemanger, but didnt find the right one.
With Instrument->Add Symbol -> From Data Source->tradingtechnologies->ES the standard setting is Price Scale: As is,
under Tools->Symbol Dictionary->tradingtechnologies->ES->Edit Root Settings it shows a
Price Scale: 1/100.

Does somebody know the correct settings?

Hello SP,

Trading Technologies symbols can be multiplied to show “correct” prices. Each symbol can be multiplied with a multiplier at the end of Description *Root* in Symbol Dictionary for TT.
For example, for ES instrument: ES *0.01 (always insert a period, not a comma). The settings of the instrument must be edited in Quote Manager also. So the PriceScale must be multiplied by 0.01 and Big Point Value must be divided by 0.01. In this case the correct settings are the following: PriceScale = 1/100, MinMove=25, BPV=50.
Prices will then be converted for TT symbols in OPT and on the chart. This works only for futures, prices for data already in the database are not corrected.

With the remote help of Henry, here are the correct steps:

- If you have the ESH2 in the Quotemanager, then go to ESH2->Delete Data->Delete All Data
- Quotemanager->ESH2 -> Delete Symbol from the Quotemanager
- Close MC and Quotemanager, take a look at the task manager that all processes of Muticharts are down

- Quotemanager->Tools->Symbol Dictionary->tradingtechnologies->ES->Edit Root Settings . Change the settings like in picture "ES Root"
- Quotemanager->Instrument->Add Symbol -> From Data Source->tradingtechnologies->ES->ESH2
- Quotemanager-> ESH2 ->Settings. Change the settings like in picture "ES Settings" (Settings Source - Use Symbol Dictionary Settings).


If you want to chart Eurex futures, you need to go to Tools-> Exchanges&ECNs->EUREX (Abbr DTB)->Clone.
The go to the new cloned EUREX->General->Abbr:-> change to Eurex .
