The filing of a 102 form can be triggered via one of two ways:
1. Manual Trigger
To manually trigger the filing of a 102 form go to Accounts, Search, then open the relevant account page, after opening the account page scroll to the bottom and click File Form 102.
Select the destination for the 102 (please note: Eris exchange is no longer accepting 102's)
|CFE||CBOE Futures Exchange|
|CFTC||Commodity Futures Trading Commission|
|CME||Chicago Mercantile Exchange|
|MGEX||Minneapolis Grain Exchange|
|NFE||Nasdaq Futures Exchange|
For a 102A select the appropriate associated trading accounts and markets. For a 102B select the appropriate markets. The destination indicates the destination of the form 102, the destination for the 102 does not necessarily need to be the same as the market the account is trading on.
After clicking "File Report" the system will automatically load a 102 and check the data against the most recently sent 102 for that account. If no data has changed since the last filing then the system will suppress the filing.
2. Trigger file
To trigger the filing of a 102 in a more automated fashion firms can submit trigger files to FIA Tech via SFTP (please reach out to FIA Tech for connection setup).
Below is an example of a Special Account in the UI.
See below for an example of a trigger file for the same Special Account.
After loading the trigger file into the correct destination folder the file load and generation will then be displayed on the dashboard.
