API Support » Comments on Position Apr 05, 2012 @ 06:26 PM (Total replies: 2)

Then is there a way to keep the orders(position->Fill->SourceFill) that made this position longer than just this session or until the order is closed?

API Support » Comments on Position Apr 05, 2012 @ 04:44 PM (Total replies: 2)

I am placing an order with comments in it. The order then fills and the comments are still there within the position under the 'Fills'. After the session is over the Order no longer exists. I have then lost my comments. Is there a way to keep my comments throughout the life of the order/position? What I am looking for it the ability to have a comment on a position.

API Support » Options Percent Change Mar 30, 2012 @ 04:42 PM (Total replies: 2)

We are trying to get the same options percent change in the Options Chain window.

In OEC Trader we see for the OZSK2 C14 a bid 0.18 0 ask 0.30 0, last 0.25 0 Chg % 96.08%.
In our software we get the values bid 0.18 0, ask 0.30 0, last 0.25 0 and the Chg % 0.12%. We get the percent change from the
Price->Change.

Why is our percent change so different from yours?

Order Execution » Option orders Margin Mar 22, 2012 @ 01:35 PM (Total replies: 0)

I am wondering if there is a Margin that will be with an option that is sold. Aslo we tried placing an option to sell a call and it gave us a risk violation. I am wondering why and if this has anything to do with Margin.

API Support » Options Flag Feb 10, 2012 @ 05:30 PM (Total replies: 1)

I have found that the hasOptions flag on each contract will let me know if there is options per contract, but is there a flag on an upper level class to let me know if there is options available for this account for example.
From post: Currency Options http://www.openecry.com/cfbb/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=618
Quote: Options and spreads have been enabled for your account.
Now hasOptions should be true.

Since this is activated per account is there a way to know if options are available per account?

Market Data » More Bar Data Jan 23, 2012 @ 02:41 PM (Total replies: 4)

So.... what you are telling me is that using RequestBars with a start time and end time will work and get me all of the data I need. ... I have tested this and I don't think it is working. The first call I do is: (ESH2 is the symbol)
RequestBars(con,2.0,40931.815972222226,SubscriptionType_Bar,5); this is to get all of the history for the 5 min. The first data that I get is for Dec 7. So that is all the history you have? that is my question. So I loaded up OEC Trader 3.5 and opened ESH2 5 minute chart) I then keep clicking to get more data and more data and more data....over and over again. This will go well beyond Dec 7th. back into November. At this point I am thinking that my way is not working. So no this method doesn't get 'All' available data.
I might be able to work in the way you have described above, but this would require a re-write of the current method I am using. Can the way I am doing be fixed to get 'All' available data with the two dates?

This doesn't seem like a good solution. I don't want to (nor does it seem practical to) manage that many subscriptions. I feel that I don't need to subscribe to any of them. All I want is what the current price (value) is at the time I ask for the contractChanged message. For any and all other futures symbols the CurrentPrice object has the information that I would like, and I don't need to subscribe to it. I know the value could change and does change, but I am not concerned with that right now. If I need to know the value and have it update, I then (later) will subscribe to that option separately.

Market Data » Options Data Jan 13, 2012 @ 02:27 PM (Total replies: 3)

I would like to know how to get an Options current value.

for example I would like to list the options for say March Corn I can get the list of strike prices by RequestContracts() for the options symbol (OZC) this will then give me all the contracts for the options. their symbols being "OZCG2 C2", "OZCG2 P2", "OZCG2 C4.35", ... etc. (there are a lot of these). I would like to list all of these (strikes) with their values (last price?). How would i get the values of these strikes? short of subscribing to the quotes for each one (which is not going to happen there are too many). CurrentPrice on these contracts are null. I hope you understand what I am asking.

API Support » "Close" & "Close All" API calls Nov 09, 2011 @ 01:18 PM (Total replies: 2)

Is there a “close position” or “close all” functionality through the api? Meaning when the client wants to simply close all (both open orders & pending orders) and reduce risk they would click a “close all” that would simply cancel all working orders and close any/all open positions without the oec system needing to check to see if they have sufficient margin because the system already knows they are attempting to reduce risk and close/cancel all open positions & pending orders. Currently when people close an open order we simply buy/sell in the opposite direction, but the OEC system occasionally rejects the order and gives a “risk violation” because it doesn’t recognize the trader is simply trying to get flat and reduce risk by closing out their current open position. So, is there a “close open position call” and a “close all” (would close all open/pending orders) call available through the API to avoid “risk violation – insufficient margin” error/rejection messages?

Market Data » More Bar Data Oct 31, 2011 @ 02:05 PM (Total replies: 4)

In the OEC Trader there is a menu item to get more data. When I have a Range chart open and I select this I do get more data. I am wanting this. Is there a call in the API to do this? My first call when requesting historical data is with the start time of a date long ago (more than I know you have history for). If I am doing this wrong let me know, or is there another method for getting more data?

API Support » Fails to connect Aug 04, 2011 @ 03:18 PM (Total replies: 2)

I am sure it is, The OEC Trader Demo is installed and running.

The calls to create the OECAPI() creates the api and attaches to the server calls work. It give a runtime error when calling Connect(). all of this in the sample app for the api.

I will check though. Is there a spicific location that I need to check the registration of the OEC COM API?

Market Data » Coffee Minimum Move Aug 04, 2011 @ 12:43 PM (Total replies: 0)

In the sim server the KC-M contract the minimum move is .05 and it should be .0005. This is correct in the real servers.

We have a customer that can not connect to the OEC servers at all.
We have done all that we can to trubleshoot this problem from our end. I even used your sample app and had him run it. This also fails to connect giving a runtime error. Is there any thing more that we can check and or do to get why this machine doen't work with your dlls?

Could you add the First notice dates for futures contracts, like the experation date and so forth. This would help traders know when a good time is to switch over to the next contract of close the order all together. thanks.

Market Data » Subscription Stops Jul 29, 2011 @ 05:18 PM (Total replies: 3)

Problem is we subscribe to a symbol which works fine, we get data, but after some time (random) the data stops coming as if we unsubscribed. What more information would you need from me to help you to fix this?
