How to Enter a Trade

You can enter a trade by clicking on the top + TRADE button in the top left-hand corner. 

Manual Entry

The system will automatically populate the fields based on what you wrote in the text box. You can still manually enter fields if you're unsure of product or counterparty codes by clicking on typing something into individual boxes. 

Color Codes

Here's a guide to our color codes:

  • Red boxes are required to fill out before you press save
  • Gray boxes are not required to fill out before you press save
  • Green boxes indicate you've satisfied the completion requirement 

If you're having trouble saving a trade you've entered, make sure there are no red boxes on the screen.

Additional Fields

For additional fields, press the MORE drop-down under the original fields. 

If you have requested custom fields for trade entries, press the drop-down under the MORE section. Your implementation team will help you set them up and answer any questions.

The fields shown are unique to your account, book, and tag.  

To save the trade, press SAVE or the enter button.
