FXCM Order Tickets

Hello!

When executing a partial exit (not being target or stop) on an existing position, FXCM often (not always) assigns a new order ticket to the remaining position. This new order ticket is picked up by SC and edited as RESTORED in Trade Activity Log (TAL). RESTORED activity entry has an empty position field and a correct value in the quantity field. So far so good.

FXCM considers the original ticket closed. I do see in TAL that SC is doing the same, however:

1. Trade Orders and Positions (TOP) >> Positions, and chart trading show the correct position size;
2. TOP >> Trade Stats has open quantity doubled;
3. Subsequent trades do not execute properly (reversals only doing exit and not an opposite entry). I gather this could be because of the incorrect open quantity.

After manually deleting the value in the quantity field in TAL, Trade Stats at least gives the correct quantity.

Can this only be solved by clearing TAL every time (which is not practical since it is a recurring issue during the day), or is there another solution?

Thanks

3. The Sierra Chart Trade Statistics and order fill data is not going to in any way have any impact upon the execution of an order. Precisely what is going wrong when you say "not execute properly?

And do you have Menu >> Use Trade Fill Calculated Position on the Trade Window enabled?

Use Trade Fill Calculated Position is not enabled.

I was not sure about the impact on order activity. This is good to know.

Forget about the order execution. A sort of dormant condition came into play, that got not triggered for months. I completely overlooked this. Could not figure this out and since this happened shortly after the doubling of position size in TOP, I linked the two together. In short, orders completely and fully behaved as expected. Sorry to bother you with that.

I'll ignore trade stats.

Thanks

We do want the Trade statistics to be accurate and we have done some recent work with that with FXCM. Make sure you are on the latest prerelease and do report us any issues. This needs to work exactly perfectly. If not, then we will work with FXCM to get it to work right.

Do not hesitate to take our time on this one. Because we do want this to work right.
