Lightstreamer TRADE message behaviour


Tipper258

Question

Folks, back at the API after a few years away .... in the demo account, when an order is placed, I would expect to see CONFIRM and WOU messages. Instead no CONFIRM, only OPU messages. This is for orders raised on the web platform (trying to understand behaviours before coding order / position mgmt). 

Can anyone confirm, or have a blog post anywhere on what messaging is generated in the stream for order and position lifecycle please? i.e. when an order is confirmed, order updates, conversion to a position, position updates, closing messages and so on.

TIA, Alan

Hi, regardless of what anyone else might say on a blog if you are subscribed to the trading messages stream you should see confirmations of your trades. We have had other users in the forum pointing the same problem. The problem was always related to the demo account. Looking at what others have said I think that the demo account sometimes is not reliable regarding these messages. I never saw anyone complaining about the live account.

Hi, thanks for this, I'm guessing that the API reference is what I should expect to happen, although testing assumptions before having to test with real money would have been nice. If anyone has examples of the CONFIRM, WOU, and OPU messages involved for a trade flowing through I'd be very grateful.

How does one file a bug in the API behaviour please, when it's not as per the documentation?

"tested" this in production and it's the same behaviour, messages that have the structure of a WOU are being published as OPUs, as well as real OPUs.

To work around you have to test for presence or absence of various properties in the json structure to derive which message type it's supposed to be.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
