I would like to know:

A) How can i open a buy and a sell trades to have both running at the same time?

B) Exist any way, that using Sierra Chart in simulation mode, I see the future individual costs that I'll have whenever I start with real trading?
B.1) If there is no way to see it in simulation mode, would you be able to share What will be my individual costs whenever I open a buy trade in NASDAQ future symbol (MNQZ23).

Thanks in advance.

A) The only way to do this would be to have different accounts where one has the Buy and the other has the Sell. Refer to the following:
Overview of Trading: Maintaining Long and Short Position for Same Symbol

B) If you are referring to the costs per trade (commissions) then you can view this adjustment on the Trade Activity Log by selecting the option for "Use Commission". You will need to setup the commissions amount in the Symbol Settings - either globally or per symbol. Refer to the following:
Trade Activity Log: Use Commission

You would need to ask your broker what their commission fees are - this is not something we know or have.
