This is my first day trading live futures. Usually on SIM1 when I place an order at Bid/Ask it drops me straight into the market at that very point, then allowing my Stop loss line to appear above my sell entry point at 10 pips with my take profit below at 10 pips. This set up is working okay for me here but when I switch to my Live account when I hit the Sell option and sell into the market, it's generating my entry point about 10 pips below where I want to enter, my stop loss is already below where the market currently is. It's also taking me out of the market well before my take profit lines are, thankfully both trades I put on were turned out profitable but it's very unnerving to see my position be -250 as I hit the sell button instead of being neutral on the SIM1 account where it gradually fluctuates between profit and loss before hitting either Stoploss or Take profit lines.
Is there a setting somewhere that I can change to immediately enter the market where I'd like instead of placing it -10 pips behind the market?
Thank you so much.
