Main instance -- submit market order with attached target-stop, all is good, TAL shows target and stop are sent with qty 1.
Sub-instance, copy of the same chartbook, same submit, but TAL shows target and stop are sent with qty 0.

I've done this with main instance connections to both Gain Demo and Interactive Brokers Demo, with the same result.

FYI, I'm using NQH8/NQ-21803-GLOBEX, order qty 1, Targets/Stops Match .twconfig, TIF Day

Cheers,
Dale

In newer versions, Sierra Chart does use a quantity of zero for child orders when they are sent as part of a server-side bracket order when using the DTC protocol. This is for safety reasons because the quantities have to be controlled by the parent order management of the child orders in the instance where they are managed.

But if you are also using server side bracket orders with these particular services there may be a problem. So we will have to test this.

When not using the DTC protocol, and when a bracket order is received from a sub instance, a bracket order sent out to the external trading service, if supported, now has the proper quantity for child orders.

This is in version 1682.
