Post From: Interface between SC and T4 is seriously broken

Please refer to this section for information about how the Trade Positions Average Price is calculated and used:

There have been some recent changes with this.

We will make sure that the fill quantity is nonzero before logging a fill from the T4 system.

The problem obviously has to do with the fill data provided from T4. Inaccurate fill quantities and prices will definitely cause obvious issues. Sierra Chart has more reliance on fill data now than in the past for reporting PL and average prices.

Basically, SC does not show positions on the charts any more, although it shows fills and stop orders as the screenshot displays (SC-T4-no-position-on-chart.jpg).
This has to do with the Position Average Price which relates to the inaccurate fills. This is explained here:
