I have set stop to move certain ticks market moves a certain amount. I got in two sim trades yesterday and then switched off the computer. When i switched on the computer and subsequently the platform this morning my stop had not moved even though the market had moved to the level where the stop should have moved

You state that these were "sim trades". If you were using Simulation Mode, then the system does not have a way to follow the information when Sierra Chart is not running. In other words, Simulation Mode is strictly client-side and Sierra Chart has to be running for it to work.

If you are wanting a more "realistic" simulation environment, then take a look at our Trading Evaluator systems. These use Server-Side orders to simulate the real-world trading environment, therefore you could turn off your Sierra Chart software and still have your orders handled on the server. Refer to the following:
