FIX Message SecurityStatusRequest (MsgType=e)
|MsgType||FIX Specification||First introduced|
|MsgType=e||PreTrade messages - SecuritiesReferenceData||FIX.4.2|
The Security Status Request message provides for the ability to request the status of a security. One or more Security Status messages are returned as a result of a Security Status Request message.
The Security Status Request message contains a SubscriptionRequestType field. This tells the counter party what type of request is being made:
0 - indicates that the requestor only wants a snapshot or the current status.
1 - indicates that the requestor wants a snapshot (the current status) plus updates as the status changes. This is similar to subscribing for information and can be implemented in applications as a subscription mechanism.
2 - indicates that the requestor wishes to cancel any pending snapshots or updates - in essence making this an unsubscribe operation.
