Preface

B2BITS' FIX ICE Private Order Feed Solution is pre-configured to work with ICE POF FIX interfaceICE Private Order Feed Solution is based on B2BITS' generic server FIXEdge, therefore it leverages all FIXEdge features including easy configuration, administration, and monitoring. 

Workflow Overview

1. Supported FIX Messages

ICE Private Order Feed Solution data is captured by FIXEdge via FIX 4.2 session. The ICE Private Order Feed Solution supports the following FIX messages: 

2. ICE Private Order Feed Solution Workflow

See also step-by-step description below:

Main flow:

  1. ICE Private Order Feed Solution starts and establishes FIX Session to ICE POF using data from FIXEdge.properties file
  2. Once the session is established, ICEPofHistoryReq.js is called and the Custom History Request (MsgType = "UHR") is sent to ICE POF (request asks for order events starting from today's midnight)
  3. ICE POF determines that the request parameters are valid and replies with snapshot of Execution Report (MsgType = '8') messages
  4. ICE Private Order Feed Solution processes snapshot of Execution Report (MsgType = '8') messages.
  5. To inform about completed snapshot of drop copy messages, ICE POF sends FIX News (MsgType = "B") message.

  6. ICE POF starts sending live updates (new orders or changes to existing ones - Execution Report (MsgType = '8') messages)
  7. ICE Private Order Feed Solution processes Execution Report (MsgType = '8') messages
  8. ICE POF starts sending Allocation (MsgType = 'J') messages
  9. ICE Private Order Feed Solution processes Allocation (MsgType = 'J') messages

Exceptional cases:

2a. Session with ICE POF is not established

2a1. Notice about a failed attempt to create the session is logged into FIXEdge.log

2a2. ICE Private Order Feed Solution performs an attempt to recreate the session based on the session configuration parameters

3a. ICE POF determines that the Historic Request contains invalid data

3a1. ICE POF sends the Business Message Reject (MsgType = 'j') to inform about failed request

3a2. ICE Private Order Feed Solution writes the following warning in the FIXEdge.log file

WARN: History Request failed with the following reason '" + *** Reject reason received from ICE *** + ""

4a. ICE POF does not have data available to be sent as a Snapshot

4a1. The FIX News (MsgType = "B") message is sent to Business Layer

"History Request was successfully accomplished. ICE POF status: '" + text + "'";

4a2. Main flow continues from the step 7. 

3. Processing Incoming ICE POF Data

Note, value of SenderSubID (50) is not supplied by ICE. User can choose any value as long as it complies with datatype of this tag.
Values for the following tags are expected to be supplied by ICE and to be specified in custom Logon:

  • UserType (9001) - either '1' (Trading Firm) or '2' (Clearing Firm Company)

The following tags and their values must be specified in Custom ICE POF Logon to support the Allocation message:

  • StrategyPreference (9006) - StrategyPreference (Tag 9006) must be set to ‘1’ if PublishClearingAllocations (Tag 9008) = ‘1’. Set the value to 1.
  • PublishClearingAllocations (9008) - indicates whether or not the allocations from clearing should be published over the session.  Supported value(s): 0 = Do not send clearing allocation messages (Default if not sent). 1 = Send clearing allocation messages. Set the value to 1.
