Regarding post #50 you do not need to create a new account, your trading account has already been moved to the new simulation system. You just need to follow these instructions:

To continue to use this service, you need to follow the below instructions:

Update Sierra Chart to the latest release:

The "Current Selected Service" needs to be set to "Trading Evaluator".

Set the "Service Settings >> Use Enhanced Trade Simulation Service" to Yes.

Press OK.

I'm having an issue I haven't run into before on one of my sim accounts. Trades in ES keep getting rejected due to insufficient NLV, as it's requiring 100% margin. In the settings, it's set to use 5%. I've reconnected, and also updated to the current release. There's just under $7k for account balance. I can't figure out why it's requiring 100% margin... any suggestions?
Percent of margin can now be set per product. Edit your trade account, and then go to the Symbol Limits tab and then set Use Percent of Required Margin to 0 to disable this for the product. Do that for all listed products. Also do that for ALL_SYMBOLS. That may be the only listed product.
