I am trying to place an order on this DX-MH0 contract and am getting the rejected order because of the symbol not supported error. I know that the market it still open when I was placing them.

Could you tell me why the orders were getting rejected or that error is being used.

Technically there are 2 connections: Training and Market. The Training interface stays up all week

ICE Market came down at the scheduled time of 6:10 PM ET.

100106 171001496 W: RTD IPE Market Interface trying to logout from open connections...
100106 171001496 I2. Successfully disconnected from IPE!

The reason for the order reject looks to be a phase change from TRADE to Post Trade:
100105 190000130 I1: IPE 900041 <US Dollar Index> RTD 1293077 <DX-M 1003>. TradingStatus is now O. Rtd (TRADE)
100106 164500233 I1: IPE 900041 <US Dollar Index> RTD 1293077 <DX-M 1003>. TradingStatus is now 2. Rtd (POSTR)
100106 170000200 I1: IPE 900041 <US Dollar Index> RTD 1293077 <DX-M 1003>. TradingStatus is now C. Rtd (ENDTR)

The training interface is setup to only allow orders in a TRADE phase.

Thanks,

OK. If the market closed at 6:10 pm ET

I was placing those orders at 5:55 ET or close to that time. These should of went through. according to this.

I am not sure what the Training interface is, or the TradingStatus, or even the TRADE phase. If there was a way to know what these were within the api I would know not to even try to send an order out of 'TRADE phase'.

Is there a call to get this from within the API?

These orders would not have gone through the TRAINING (SIM) interface at this time because by design orders are not accepted when the phase is POST TRADE at the ICE Exchange.

We built this TRAINING tool this way to avoid non-RTH trades (i.e. weekends).

You would not see this behavior in Production. Sorry if this has caused you any confusion. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
