Make sure Trade >> Trade Simulation Mode On is disabled.

The accounts you see are what are provided by IB trader workstation when Sierra Chart connects to it.

Here is the problem
My Data account feed is from IQfeed
My trading is accounts are IB
I need the SC trading window to reflect my IB accounts while my charting should reflect my IQfeed accounts
As it stands I am unable to trade from SC trade window
IB says its a configuration issue on SC platform

This is an unusual problem and not easy for us to help with.

In the next release we are going to provide additional logging indicating how many trade account numbers have been received from the IB trader workstation upon connection.

has this been taken care of?
If so how does one trade the additional trade accounts

We have only added logging to confirm what we suspect and that is Trader Workstation is not sending all of the trade accounts.

Update to the latest prerelease with Help >> Download Prerelease.

After connecting to trader workstation, post a copy of the Message Log.

This is a Message Log indicating a connection to IQ Feed. Not Interactive Brokers.

We need you to connect to Interactive Brokers.

We can clearly tell from the Message Log received that Sierra Chart received two Trade account identifiers from TWS and they were properly put into the trade account array:

Interactive Brokers | Received 2 Trade Accounts from TWS. | 2014-10-24 13:03:15

Do you see 2 accounts listed on the Trade Window in the drop-down list box with the trade accounts? Are there more accounts which should be there? If so, then IB Trader Workstation is not sending them. That is quite clear.

as stated earlier in the post I need to have the data feed separated from the trading window with the trading window direct to IB and the data coming from IQ

You may want to consider using the Sierra Chart Real-time and Historical Exchange Data Feed instead of IQ Feed:
Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed

It is fully integrated with Interactive Brokers.

To do what you want, requires that you have two copies of Sierra Chart. One set up for IQ Feed and another one for Interactive Brokers. In the IB copy, you can open a chart or Trade DOM using data from the copy of Sierra Chart connected to IQ Feed.

Here are complete instructions:

My biggest concern is the Tick charts IBs are terrible while IQs are pretty accurate
how does SCs compare?

The Sierra Chart data feed is a tick by tick data feed. All trades are delivered from the exchange. It has no filtering. It is a high-quality data feed.

Do you recognize "Exchange Waivers"?

Yes. You can get the reduced CME exchange fees if you have a live futures trading account. Refer to the section here for the prices:
