Signal lines disappear when in auto-trade mode

I have a custom acsil which has 3 sub-graphs. I connect to IB and when I have it in "simulation" mode, all the sub-graphs show as expected but when I switch off the simulation mode to send trades to IB, all the sub-graphs stop drawing from this point forward...
If I switch on simulation again the graphs draw.
In all cases the price graph does draw.
I am concerned that the calculations (and trade signals from them) may not be executing.
Note: I do have all the symbols in the global update list... AND auto-loop is off.

Please advise.

We cannot help but this. Clearly this is something you need to debug. We have no idea what the problem is other than knowing the problem must be in your own code.

Maybe I did not explain this correctly...
On the "trade" menu, when I have the option "Trade simulation mode on" selected, all subgraphs show and update correctly.
When I de-select "Trade simulation mode on" (to turn simulation off) the subgraphs stop updating...

This is not a function I can debug as it is an SC menu option...

There is 0% interaction between Trade Simulation Mode and the calculation and drawing of studies. The issue is in your code for sure.

Switching in and out of Trade Simulation Mode does cause a recalculation in the chart, but it does not actually affect what the study function itself does or the drawing of studies. What happens is no different than when you select Chart >> Recalculate.

Switching in and out of Trade Simulation Mode will cause studies on the charts to be calculated because there is a change with the working orders that may be loaded in the chart and also the trade position data, but it should not cause a full recalculation. We have fixed that.

The reason this was previously causing a full recalculation is because it would cause a change of the Trade Account for the chart and a full recalculation is necessary as part of the process of rebuilding the internal trade lists.

However, switching Trade Accounts between a simulation and non-simulation account, does not require a rebuild of the trade lists because there are already separate trade lists for Simulated and non-simulated order fills that already exist in the chart.

All of this discussion in this post, is not related to your problem. It was merely a small optimization we have made after doing some tests.
