createBasket

Create basket of Bloomberg EMSX orders

Description

example

events = createBasket(c,basket,order) creates a basket of Bloomberg® EMSX orders using the Bloomberg EMSX connection, basket name, and order request. createBasket returns the order sequence numbers and status message using the default event handler.

example

events = createBasket(c,basket,'timeOut',timeout) specifies a timeout value for the execution of the default event handler.

example

createBasket(___,'useDefaultEventHandler',false) creates a basket of Bloomberg EMSX orders using any of the previous input argument combinations and a custom event handler function. Write a custom event handler to process the events associated with creating a basket of orders. This syntax does not have an output argument because the custom event handler processes the contents of the event queue.

example

___ = createBasket(c,basket,options) uses the options structure to customize the output, which is useful for configuring and saving your options for repeated use. The available options structure fields are timeOut and useDefaultEventHandler. Use the events output argument when the useDefaultEventHandler field is set to true, and omit this output argument when the useDefaultEventHandler field is set to false.

Using a Bloomberg EMSX connection, create a basket of Bloomberg EMSX orders.

To create a Bloomberg EMSX order, create the connection c using emsx and set up the order subscription using orders. For an example showing these activities, see Create and Manage a Bloomberg EMSX Order.

Create the order request structure order1 to define the order parameters. In this case, the code creates a buy market order for 100 shares of IBM®. The code uses the broker BB with the time in force set to DAY and any hand instruction. Convert the number of shares to a 32-bit signed integer using int32.

order1.EMSX_TICKER = 'IBM';
order1.EMSX_AMOUNT = int32(100);
order1.EMSX_ORDER_TYPE = 'MKT';
order1.EMSX_BROKER = 'BB';
order1.EMSX_TIF = 'DAY';
order1.EMSX_HAND_INSTRUCTION = 'ANY';
order1.EMSX_SIDE = 'BUY';

events = createOrder(c,order1)
events = 

  struct with fields:
    
    EMSX_SEQUENCE: 354646
    MESSAGE: 'Order created'

The default event handler processes the events associated with creating the order. createOrder returns events as a structure that contains these fields:

  • EMSX_SEQUENCE — Bloomberg EMSX order number

  • MESSAGE — Bloomberg EMSX message

Create another order request structure order2 to define the order parameters. In this case, the code creates a buy market order for 200 shares of IBM. The code uses the broker BB with the time in force set to DAY and any hand instruction. Convert the number of shares to a 32-bit signed integer using int32.

order2.EMSX_TICKER = 'IBM';
order2.EMSX_AMOUNT = int32(200);

Input Arguments

collapse all

Bloomberg EMSX service connection, specified as a connection object created using emsx.

Basket name, specified as a character vector or string scalar.

Example: "OrderBasket"

Data Types: char | string

Order request, specified as a structure that contains the EMSX_SEQUENCE field. This field contains the order numbers. Convert the order numbers to a 32-bit signed integer by using int32.

Example: int32(123456)

Data Types: struct

Timeout value, specified as a nonnegative integer. This integer denotes the time, in milliseconds, that the event handler listens to the event queue for each iteration of the code. The event handler can be a default or custom event handler.

Data Types: double

Options for a custom event handler or timeout value, specified as a structure. To reuse the settings for specifying a custom event handler or timeout value for the event handler, use the options structure.

For example, specify using a custom event handler and a timeout value of 200 milliseconds.

options.useDefaultEventHandler = false;
options.timeOut = 200;

Data Types: struct

Output Arguments

collapse all

Event queue contents, returned as a double or structure.

If the event queue contains events, events is a structure containing the current contents of the event queue. Otherwise, events is an empty double.
