Trading Technologies


A high percentage of the electronic volume traded on the five largest derivatives exchanges moves through Trading Technologies X_TRADER®. Advantage Futures supports this application through our multi-million dollar investment in technology infrastructure and management.

X_TRADER Pro, TT’s premium trading software, provides expanded functionality and features that can really make a difference in how you trade. X_TRADER Pro’s additional benefits include:


Automatically create and trade multiple spreads simultaneously with Autospreader. This automated order management tool easily defines and manages spreads, working the legs automatically to match your desired spread price. Supports market orders, limit orders, calendar and interproduct spreads.

Autospreader® Strategy Engine (Autospreader® SE)

This server-based spreader enhances the performance of TT’s traditional client-based Autospreader application by combining the benefits of high-performance proximity-based computing with the flexibility and ease of TT’s X_TRADER trading screen.


This powerful automated trading tool features multiple levels of automation, a built-in formula engine, Microsoft Excel® integration, expansive configuration possibilities and strategy prices based on the market or theoretical values.

Custom and third-party applications

Enhance the functionality of X_TRADER Pro by creating your own proprietary applications with the X_TRADER API. You may also integrate third-party applications developed by members of the TT Connected Partner Program or use the TT FIX Adapter to connect third party or proprietary systems to TT’s trading platform.


Extend the power of X_TRADER Pro through the X_TRADER API. By tapping into the X_TRADER API, you can develop custom add-on applications that enhance your electronic trading strategy. Applications developed using the X_TRADER API can receive real-time prices and updates, submit orders, receive order and fill update information, manipulate orders that exist in the X_TRADER order book and more. The X_TRADER API allows you to develop applications that execute proprietary trading algorithms, create strategies that react to market changes in real time, create custom spreads and complex order types and execute black-box trading models.


TT’s FIX Adapter enables non-TT systems to connect to TT’s trading platform using the industry- standard Financial Information eXchange (FIX) messaging protocol. This means that order management systems, algorithmic black boxes and third-party front-ends can easily connect to the TT infrastructure for high-speed order routing, risk management, position monitoring and market data services.

The X_TRADER platform is used by Futures Commission Merchants (FCMs), proprietary traders, international banks, introducing brokers, market makers, hedge fund managers, commodity trading advisors (CTAs), personal investors and corporations to trade in markets across the world. Its proven versatility means there is no doubt X_TRADER can work for you.
