As promised, the next update to Marketcetera Platform is out. Version 0.4.2 has a variety of bug fixes, along with better currency support in Tradebase and improved diagnostics for the Marketcetera Appliance. In addition, we modified the Tradebase on the appliance to record trades automatically when the OMS receives incoming broker execution reports.
We focused on improved usability for the appliance in this release. The diagnostics page now lets you update the senderCompID of the OMS from the hard-coded one the appliance ships with, and you can also view the Tradebase and OMS logs from the appliance itself.
While we are working on improving the out-of-the-box usability, we realize that it may still be tough to get going with Marketcetera, so we created an “instructional video” that helps you get started with appliance configuration.
A always, we are looking forward to your comments and feedback. In addition, we’ll be out in New York for the O’Reilly Money:Tech conference, so come meet Marketcetera in person!
