A MarketMaker can run several types of Markets. For example, it can run an hourly real-time market and also an ancillary services market for Regulation.

This is captured by the concept of MarketType.

A given MarketType partitions time into MarketSlots. For example, an hourly market will have a new MarketSlot that starts at the top of each hour.


The MarketSlotName encodes:
  • The MarketType (the first word)

  • The start of that MarketSlot (last word)

  • The GNodeAlias of its MarketMaker (middle words)

Example: rt60gate5.d1.isone.ver.keene.1673539200
