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.

    • After Monday's losses, stocks have stabilised, with most markets in Asia able to clock up small gains. A notable exception was the ASX 200, which fell 0.5% following the RBA's decision to raise rates by 25bps. This was the ninth hike in a row, and any hopes of a pause were dimmed as the bank noted that more tightening might be necessary. A quieter week on the earnings and corporate data from means that investors are back to focusing on what the Fed might do from here - Friday's jobs data set the cat amongst the pigeons on this, and now markets are pricing a Fed funds rate that is slightly higher than was the case last week, while cuts are now not expected until the opening months of 2024.
