Hi User587930.. Yes the order allocation bug under SC/Linux/Wine is still there unfortunately. To resolve this bug and simplify the allocation steps, one future solution would be to list all the accounts and then have a check next to the accounts to copy to. Or, find out what is causing complete SC freeze with the allocation list as-is. Ideally we will see some help on this.

In SC under Linux/Wine, adding 1 allocation account after removing whatever is in the allocation accounts list works...however, when adding more than 1 account I have not been able to find a way for it to work without SC immediately freezing/hanging requiring an OS forced exit.

Trade copying is an incredibly powerful capability and I appreciate what has been implemented so far. Also, there is a third party developer and excellent trader working on a new and robust way to accomplish trade copying in SC within and between different accounts. As I get updates, I will add here.

For an interesting response to user's requests for trade copying between brokers, see the link below.

FWIW: SC's competitor has an add-on for this capability but I really do not want to change platforms for this capability at this time. Trade copying enables traders to make significant money while reducing risk if done properly. Often there are 1-10+ accounts copied.

For the 3rd party SC trade copying offerings, the between broker capability is available, however, please test thoroughly with your configuration, expertise and expectations.
