Please add a separate Global Trade Position Limit setting for Micro vs Mini contracts.

Using per symbol setting, seem to run into issues at times with not being able to modify existing attached orders due to maximum potential position quantity.

Please add below to Symbol Settings, to enhance trading risk/exposure management :

-Filter list of symbols by symbols traded, ie trading 15 futures symbols, cumbersome to manually scroll through non fully alphabetical order list of thousands of symbols without ability to filter or search, to make changes to each symbol.

-Search symbols.

-Apply changes to multiple symbols at once, ie groups of symbols, US indices - ES, YM, NQ, RTY.

-Save sets of symbol settings with named configurations, like TWC's, for adjusting trade position size/order quantity size limits.

my 2cents....

-Filter list of symbols by symbols traded, ie trading 15 futures symbols, cumbersome to manually scroll through non fully alphabetical order list of thousands of symbols without ability to filter or search, to make changes to each symbol.
Better (easier?) option could be to list all the symbols of current open charts/chartbooks at the very beginning (similar to "most recently used symbols")

-Search symbols.
+1 (if you are not aware, typing first alphabet of symbol will take you to the first symbol in the list with that alphabet)

Using per symbol setting, seem to run into issues at times with not being able to modify existing attached orders due to maximum potential position quantity.
Unless I am misunderstanding. we need this global protection to apply universally to all attached orders.

Please add a separate Global Trade Position Limit setting for Micro vs Mini contracts.
- not sure if this adds much value at the global level as not all symbols have a mini/micro combination.

I am a huge fan of custom symbol settings! Fantastic feature in Sierra Charts imo. Only one thing I find missing is the "Include Dates" feature similar to "Exclude Dates".

None of this is going to go anywhere. There is no chance of any of this happening.
