chanId msgType tradeID Timestamp Amount Price [ 139260, 'te', [ 73962571, 1507383025000, 97.628437, 0.503 ] ] [ 139260, 'tu', [ 73962571, 1507383025000, 97.628437, 0.503 ] ]
te = Trade Execution
tu = Trade Execution Update

tu message. There is no difference in content of these messages, so what is the purpose of the
What is the difference between a Trade Execution and a Trade Execution Update?
