Post From: Trade Window Flatten - position not exited

Sierra Chart definitely does cancel all of the outstanding nonmarket orders before sending the market order to flatten. However, right after that, the market order is sent out. So the problem is that until those orders are actually confirmed to be canceled by the exchange, the risk management on the server is rejecting the market order. So what the broker said is going to be the best advice.

So there really is not a problem anywhere. The only way to completely avoid this, is to allow more contracts to be traded on your account. Or cancel the orders first, give them a moment to actually cancel and flatten.
