we will do our best to get a live iLink session from one of the firms and see how that goes.
We are working on this now. And making progress. Once we have this set up, we will begin live testing.

We continue to make good progress with everything related to direct order routing.

The creation and management of trade accounts, is also the same code base used with the server-based trade simulation service, and we will be releasing that we hope in a matter of days. And this will be a major enhancement, to our trade simulation service:
Simulated Futures Trading Service

This will make it so much easier to use and you can easily share accounts with other users, and publicly share your trade statistics (that will come later though). So we are very happy to finally get this out.

If you want to use this simulated futures trading service, just wait until we get the new trade account management functionality out, which is all done within Sierra Chart.

We also need to work on the functionality for synchronizing account balances to the clearing firm balances. This is very simply accomplished by a simple text file, transferred over a secure FTP connection. And at this point, we do have a plan in place for handling overnight positions. We just need to verify our plan, and then we will explain how it works but basically the average price will be maintained based on a FIFO calculation. And we will still ensure that the cash balance is correct at the end of the day to match the users trading account even though the firm would be marking all positions to the market.
