TT is fully hosted, so there are no infrastructure or maintenance costs. Subscription and transactional pricing models make the TT platform affordable whether you’re a hedger trading only a few times a month or a market maker entering hundreds of trades a day.
Built for the aggressive professional trader, our patented industry-standard MD Trader ladder delivers maximum speed, reliability and ease of use for trading futures, options on futures, fixed income, energies, commodities and more.
The market-leading ladder
MD Trader is widely acknowledged as the industry-standard ladder for professional futures traders. It revolutionized futures trading 15 years ago when it launched in our first-generation X_TRADER® platform, and it’s evolved through the years to incorporate the most comprehensive array of features for aggressive click traders.
Powerful but easy to use
In MD Trader, market depth travels up and down the ladder to dynamically indicate market movement. It allows you to easily view prices, then quickly and accurately enter orders in a static vertical display.
With MD Trader, you can:
- Enter and cancel orders with a single click
- Choose from a range of popular synthetic order types including market, limit, iceberg, stop, cross and OCO
- Drag and drop working orders on the ladder to change prices
- Easily view depth of market, implied prices and volume, volume at price and more
- See all individual working orders at a price level, quickly change an order price or quantity, or delete a working order using the Floating Order Book
Now with the best of X_TRADER® and more
MD Trader in the new TT platform has all the popular functionality of MD Trader in X_TRADER. But it also include enhancements that provide you with even more flexibility and power. For example, with MD Trader in TT, you can:
- Easily add a new MD Trader ladder to a workspace by clicking on the widget menu, or open a ladder seeded with the contract of your choice by searching for the contract in the title bar.
- Conserve screen real estate and trade multiple contracts in one instance of MD Trader by using tabs.

We’ve re-imagined and re-engineered our market-leading Autospreader®, ADL® (Algo Design Lab), Autotrader™ and API tools to be everything you know—but with more flexibility and accessibility than ever before.
TT comes with pre-canned popular features, like inside smart quote, which you can easily tweak and enhance. You can also build your own features with the new Rule Builder.
TT supports all the popular ADL functionality from X_TRADER®, like the ability to drive Autospreader with ADL. But you get even more with TT, like the ability to drive one algo from another.
You can launch the market-making algo that’s the backbone of the Autotrader window in X_TRADER from the TT Algo Dashboard. You can also create links between the inputs and outputs of any algo.
The new TT APIs result in the lowest latency and highest throughput ever available from any TT application programming interface. In fact the TT Software Development Kit (TTSDK™), a C/Linux-based API, delivers the highest level of performance and speed available in any TT API to date.
TT also dramatically enhances performance. All spreads and algos execute on servers in our private co-located data centers to deliver ultra-low-latency performance. Orders routed on our global, redundant, co-located infrastructure achieve levels of performance and reliability unlike anything before.
And with TT, all of your workspaces and algo configurations go where you go. You can create a spread or an algo using a laptop, deploy it from your office workstation and manage it from your phone. The experience is consistent no matter where you are and what device you use.
