beeTrader 2018 – Symbol Manager

Features

beeTrader interfaces with Banca Sella through the Sella Trading Bridge service that does not require the Sella Extreme platform active on your PC, using this broker you have access to the historical data of many assets both between shares and between futures and you can also obtain the Options Chain for Italian shares, many European and major indices.

The connection between beeTrader and the Sella Trading Bridge takes place through the creation and connection of the assets in Symbol Manager.

Example of a Future connection

Once the asset has been created, as shown in the manual section Symbol Manager, let’s proceed with the connection.

Through the registry of the asset you want to use (in this case the future FTSE MIB 40 expires 09-18) available directly from the Sella Extreme platform, it is possible to obtain all the parameters necessary for the connection between beeTrader and the Sella Trading Bridge.

Example of linking Futures Chain and Options Chain

Once the asset has been created, as shown in the Symbol Manager  manual section, and connected it as illustrated above, we proceed to link the Futures Chain.

Then select the desired asset and right-click to select New Futures Chain.

Using the parameters used previously for the underlying connections, it is also possible to connect the Futures Chain.

  • Market: choose the market in which the futures are listed (the list is provided by the broker);
  • Underlying Market Code: as previously seen to connect the underlying asset (Intesa Sanpaolo SpA), the symbol was MTA.ISP, it follows that the underlying market code is MTA;
  • Underlying Stock Code:as previously seen to connect the underlying asset (Intesa Sanpaolo SpA), the symbol was MTA.ISP, it follows that the underlying stock code is ISP;
  • Broker Costs:is the commission cost provided by the broker. If the desired one is not present, or if you wish to make changes, the commission profiles are available  in Symbol Manager under Broker Costs.

On the settings window there is the Test Settings button that checks by downloading the chain from the broker if the settings are correct. If the settings are not correct an empty window will appear, if they are correct a window will appear containing the chain.

Similarly, select the desired asset and right-click to select New Options Chain.

If you encounter difficulties in connecting new assets, we advise you to look up to those already entered to check the correct parameters.

The expiry of a Future

As we all know, futures, both on indices and on commodities and on bonds, are subject to expiry which usually occurs every three months, but can also occur every month. In Symbol Manager an expired future is highlighted in red, at which point it is therefore necessary to replace the connection symbol of the future, the name and the expiry date.

With this in mind, the Clone command is present, which allows, once an asset is selected, to clone it into a new one that will keep all the parameters of the previous one except for Name and Expiry and symbol of connection to the broker. Using the Clone function replacing an expired future becomes much faster.

The expired symbol is highlighted in red.

Since the default symbols are not editable, we select the expired future and click on the CLONE button.

At this point we are required to assign a name to the new asset, we call it CRUDE OIL 12-18.

Now we have the new future CRUDE OIL 12-18 and we can make the necessary changes.

We proceed to change the date directly from the main screen, and then the connection symbol for Banca Sella which can be retrieved from Sella Extreme as previously seen.

In a few steps the new CRUDE OIL 12-18 asset was created by cloning the expired CRUDE OIL 09-18.

At each quarterly expiry, the list of symbols is in any case updated automatically.
