We are glad to announce that effective Monday, May 1, 2017, we are releasing the new Trader Go Live Training module in Metro for all offices. As discussed on the conference call held April 27, 2017, this module is intended to verify that traders have a solid understanding of their responsibilities under their agreements with the Select Group, as well as all applicable market rules and regulations for the market(s) which they intend to trade.
The module consists of study material followed by a quiz. The module is offered in both English and Chinese; traders can select either module to complete.
Traders should take the time to review the study material to ensure they are confident in their understanding before proceeding to take the quiz. Once started, the quiz must be completed in the same session, with a time limit of 60 minutes. Traders who fail the initial quiz will be given the chance to complete up to two further quizzes. Details of the pass-thresholds and quiz structure can be found in the manuals posted on the Manager’s Wiki and TIP.
For all traders currently in TMS-only, and all new traders going forward, successful completion of the Trader Go Live Training module will be a requirement to enable the TMS-to-Live process for that trader.
All traders who have already moved from TMS-to-Live will have until 4:00 PM ET on Friday May 26, 2017 to successfully complete the module. Failure to do so by the deadline will result in all market access being restricted pending a further review by surveillance and risk personnel.
The Trader Go Live Training module will be available to all traders from 10:00 AM ET on Monday, May 1, 2017.
We recommend that you urge your live traders to complete the module as soon as possible to avoid any risk of missing the deadline. No extensions will be given.
Traders will find the module in Metro: General Processes: Training Modules – Traders: Trader Go Live Training.
It is available in Chinese (CH) and English (EN). Traders may choose the language they prefer.
