TeleTrader WorkStation RTD is started automatically when needed, for example when opening an Excel spreadsheet containing RTD links. You can also manually start the RTD connection, if necessary.

You can see if the RTD connection is active in your Windows system tray:

The RTD connection stays active even if you close TeleTrader WorkStation or the spreadsheet that contains the RTD links. You can stop the connection manually if you donít need it anymore.
