Not sure if this issue was raised before, in simulation I have this limit sell order, MARKET BUY orders are hitting the price but I'm not getting a fill. I've attached a screenshot. As you will see price broke that level without any MARKET SELL orders, does this mean in simulation our limit sell orders are treated as market sell orders? If you could clarify that please.

To explain the screenshot, I put a limit sell order at 1152.3 price broke this level, went even 1 tick above, then came down, but I didn't get a fill.

Refer to the documentation here for how orders are filled in Trade Simulation Mode:

You can also use the CTS simulation server instead.

Also make sure that Global Settings >> Data/Trade Service settings >> Number of Stored Time and Sales Records is set to at least 5000.
