** THIS IS AN EXAMPLE SPECIFICATION ONLY **
The Order Execution message is sent to indicate the execution of an order, and serves as an instruction to both remove visible order quantity from the order book and to notify of the execution (time and sales). Like the Add Order message, this message can come in both a (typical) Short Form and a (rare) Long Form, with the Long Form reserved for very large execution quantities.
NOTE: The message does not typically contain an explicit execution price. Recipients are therefore required to infer the execution price as equal to the order price of the order referenced by the message as executed.
