I am trading in simulation mode with the Trading Evaluator data service. The Trade Order window is showing trades, but I cannot get any reporting from Trade Activity except I'm seeing entries for changes in Account Balance due to trades. I have confirmed that Edit/Disable Trade Activity Log is unchecked.

Hey @thelettere,

I don't know the exact solution to your problem, but in my experience this type of problem usually comes down to date range and symbols. Try to lower the start date to something way back in the past. Also check the symbol on your chart. Attach a Trade Window to your chart and confirm which Sim account you are using on that chart and the symbol. Go to Chart Setting to the symbol tab and check the symbol and trade symbol.

Thank you ivory... the solution was changing the trade symbol from [Sim]All Symbols to All Symbols (Non-Sim) or the actual symbol. Wasn't intuitive to me since I was in Sim, but I'm still learning and realize that the context of Sim may be more specific than what I was expecting.
