Use the UI 3.0 to handle exceptions, enter trades, manage settlement notifications, and other activities.
The functionality to manually enter trades using the CTM User Interface is available to broker/dealer users of CTM who have the Manual Entry user role enabled. This allows a user to create new block and confirmation messages.
Below is a summary of the manual entry workflow to understand what steps are involved in order to get your trades to a final Match Agreed (MAGR) status, as well as an overview of the Create Trade screen that you have to use to provide all block level information for both equity and debt trades.
Alternatively, please refer to the pdf CTM Broker/Dealer Manual Entry Job Aid (743 KB) which provides detailed step by step instructions on the full workflow.
