FIX 4.2 : Quote <S> message

Structure | Related Messages

Description

The Quote <S> message is used as the response to a Quote Request <R> message and can be used to publish unsolicited quotes.

Quotes supplied as the result of a Quote Request <R> message are tagged with the appropriate QuoteReqID <131>, unsolicited quotes can be identified by the absence of a QuoteReqID <131>.

If the message is used for foreign exchange, conventions for identifying the forex transaction are as follows:

  • The forex Symbol <55> is defined in "EBS" (Electronic Banking System) format: "CCY1/CCY2".
    • Rates are expressed as "currency1 in currency2" (or "currency2 per currency1") and are calculated as CCY2 divided by CCY1 (NOT CCY1 divided by CCY2)
    • e.g. "GBP/USD" represents a rate expressed as USD per GBP, "USD/JPY" represents a rate expressed as JPY per USD, etc.).
    • CCY1 and CCY2 are ISO currency codes
  • The value of the Currency <15> field represents the denomination of the quantity fields (e.g. JPY represents quantity of JPY).
  • See Appendix O – Foreign Exchange Trading

Orders can be generated based on Quotes. Quoted orders include the QuoteID <117> and are OrdType <40>=Previously Quoted or Forex - Previously Quoted.

Example: Quote <S> for Single Security

QuoteID=XXX
QuoteReqID=YYY
Symbol=AA
MaturyMonthYear=199901
StrikePrice=25.00
PutOrCall=1
BixPx=5.00
