When using the SMTP Service to capture signals from Tradestation, a few steps are necesary.
Ensure that the status indicator for both your Account Connection and the SMTP Service are green. If not, click the status indicator to start the SMTP Service or Connect to your Provider.
1.Within Tradestation, open a TradeManager window.
2.From the View menu, select TradeManager Preferences.
3.Enable e-mail notification for Strategy Active Order, Strategy Canceled Order, Strategy Filled Order, and Strategy Replaced Order.
4.Click the Configure... button and match your settings to the following:
5.Click the Test button. If you have configured everything correctly, Tradestation will display a Message Box indicating that the test message has been sent successfully and Independent Trader Central will acknowledge receipt of the message in the Message Log.
IMPORTANT: See Mapping Symbols
For each chart that you wish to automate, open the Format Strategies window and ensure that "Generate strategy orders for display in TradeManager's Strategy Orders tab" is checked. Do not check the "Automate execution using..." box unless you want to automate your strategy live both at Tradestation and using ITC.
Independent Trader uses the name of your workspace to capture some very important information. As such, it is important to name your workspace correctly.
Example: ITC;CQG Demo.123456;MyWorkspace
You can specify multiple accounts and size multipliers by modifying the workspace name. Be sure that all size multipliers are integers.
Example: ITC;CQG Demo.111111=1,CQG Demo.222222=2,CQG Live.333333=10;MyWorkspace
- If your workspace name does not start with "ITC", all orders from that workspace will be ignored.
- The primary field separator is a semicolon (;).
- The order of the fields is important.
