The Account Management tool is used to store predefined accounts information to autopopulate order and trade tickets.
How Accounts Work
An "Account" is a predefined collection of attributes to be used in order entry and trade reporting. At the time of use, the information stored for the selected account is used to populate the order ticket. Once submitted these values cannot be changed on the order ticket. Because this is used as a shortcut users can freely add new, change existing, or delete account information irrespective of their use in working orders, pending trades, or filled transactions.
Note that users in a TRADING GROUP may see account names for their group's working orders that resemble account that have been locally created, these are not necessarily the same. The account information working on any event can always be fully reviewed with Inspect an Order Event or Inspect a Transaction.
