Cboe Options Exchange to enhance PULSe Trader Workstation

PULSe Trader Workstation enhancements will allow entry and routing of multiple contras on simple AIM and QCC orders.

Cboe Options Exchange (C1) is set to release a new software version for the PULSe Trader Workstation which will allow entry and routing of multiple contras on simple AIM and QCC orders. The release is scheduled for Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

Previous PULSe software versions allowed entry of multiple contras for COATS recording, but only one contra order was sent to the Exchange. The latest release (version 5.8.0) has been enhanced to allow entry and routing of up to 10 contras on an order. The cumulative quantity for all contra-parties must equal the quantity of the primary order.

To make use of the new feature, users should select the Multi button from the Simple Paired entry ticket. A Multi box will open, displaying the user’s list of available accounts and a column for up to 10 multi contras with a base size for each. Selecting an account will move the selected account to a row in the multi contra column. Once the multi contras have been selected, a base size with the cumulative quantity equaling the total quantity of the primary order should be entered for each contra, then the Apply button should be selected. An account may not be modified in the multi window. An account may be removed from the multi list by clicking the “X” to the right of the base size.

Multiple contras on Complex AIM and Complex QCC orders were added in an earlier software version (version 5.7.0).

Furthermore, a new preference has been added to select routing one or multiple contras on AIM and QCC orders. The preference applies to both simple and complex orders and may be set by navigating to Settings, Order Defaults, Option Order Defaults, and Ticket Preferences. Checking Use Legacy AIM Allocations will route one contra to the exchange while still recording the multiple contras for COATS reporting. Unchecking Use Legacy AIM Allocations will route multiple contras to the C1 Exchange. The Use Legacy AIM Allocations is unchecked as a default.
