Trading Technologies Adapter


The Spotfire Streaming Adapter for Trading Technologies allows a StreamBase application to connect to a Trading Technologies venue, and to exchange FIX messages with it.

Because this adapter uses the FIX protocol to communicate with a Trading Technologies venue, its user-visible functionality is nearly identical to that of the Spotfire Streaming FIX adapter. See the FIX Adapter page for primary instructions on using the TT adapter.

The TT adapter has the following difference, compared to the FIX adapter:

  • Password:

    Because Trading Technologies venues can be optionally configured to require a password to be included when logging in, you may be required to specify this password in the configuration file used by the adapter.

    • For QuickFIX/J configuration files, add a Password=MyTTPassword entry either in the session-specific section or the [DEFAULT] section of the file.

    • For StreamBaseFIX configuration files, add a <raw-data>MyTTPassword</raw-data> entry in each <session> section that represents a Trading Technologies session.

As included in StreamBase software, this adapter can use the QuickFIX/J FIX engine and the StreamBase® High-Performance FIX Engine. The QuickFIX/J FIX engine is included in Spotfire StreamBase distributions. The StreamBase High-Performance FIX Engine is available as a separate product.
