New version of QUIK server software — 8.0
The main changes in the released version of the QUIK server relate to new functionality which meets the requirements of Bank of Russia Ordinance № 4928-U, dated 8 October 2018 and entered into force on 1 July 2019.
In particular, a new ‘MD+’ position keeping scheme was added. When the scheme is used, client’s margin indicators ‘RCV1’ and ‘RCV2’ are calculated for client portfolios. When checking purchasing power of client’s order, the adjusted ‘RCV1’ value is checked for its validity. It has also become possible to set varieties of instruments linked to a certain underlying asset with risk calculation made relative to risk rate of this underlying asset.
Besides that, in the new version administrative users are now explicitly separated from trading ones in order to meet the requirements of GOST P 57580.1-2017 ‘Security of financial (bank) operations. Data protection for financial companies. Basic set of organizational and technical measures’.
When using two-factor authentication by login and password, users now can receive/reset a password without broker specialist’s help. This option is available starting with the QUIK Workstation 8.0.
Also a number of optimization steps were made to speed up user authorization on the QUIK server and processing of operations by the limit calculation library (LCL).
