Hello Support,

i wish to share with you my daily experience as I am actually trading a SIM account with OneUpTrader and Sierra last version.
Each time I try to save a log from the Position tab, it is impossible.
I cannot choose neither a period of time.
If I want to analyse my trading, I cannot see at which price i opened, i closed, the efficiency of the entry and exit, ecc.
See attached please file named: sc_CLF8_081217_1c_290USD_Sierrachart_Positions-Tab_Save-Log

------------------------------------------------------

Besides, I placed another order on a chart place on the secondary instance of Sierrachart.

See file attached please: sc_CLF8_081217_1c_57.42_Sierrachart_Instance-2_No-Closed-Possible.jpg & mp4 files.

When I try to close the position, I get this message. Simulated Mode is NOT activated.

Rithmic Trading order update (Order reject). Info: Simulated Trade Account (Sim1) cannot be used when Trade Simulation Mode is disabled. Internal Order ID: 953823. Service Order ID: (none). Symbol: CLF8-NYMEX | 2017-12-08 15:25:30 *


Why my secondary instance consider my order as SIM or non existent so that i can not close them.

----------------------------------------------------

Please help me on this matter.

I would like to export in excel my daily trading journal.


----------------------------------------------------

Suggestion: it would be nice to allow people to choose the columns to be exported (as a profil), export them in CSV but also excel format with pre-enlarge sized columns to make even more efficient the reading of the datas.



Thanks for your kind help,

This is explained here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/NewInstance.php#UsingCorrectTradeAccount

It is supported to associate your own custom text with each order and then be able to filter those orders in the Trade Activity Log. This is done through the Text Tag:

Here are the instructions to open the Trade Window:

Here are instructions to export data from the Trade Activity Log:
