Spreadsheet System for Trading Test Procedure:

View Count: 1105

I have run the Spreadsheet System for Trading Test Procedure you have build. It went wrong from point 17: "17. An order will have been submitted and the Trade Position will be established. You can confirm this by looking at cell J5. It will contain a nonzero value."

In my case, cell J5 did not contain a nonzero value, it actually contained a zero.

Afterwards I have checked the Trade Service Log. Below you find a copy. Apparently there is something wrong with the maximum order quantity. I find that however a bit strange as SC created this Test Procedure, I suppose including the default settings that come with it, such as order quantity.

Could you advice what I do wrong and what I have to change? Thank you kindly in advance.

We will fix this. In our initial testing, it did work properly but when we increased the quantity to 10,000 we did not increase the maximum allowed position quantity.
