I have a little script that I have been testing. It makes about 5 to 10 trades a day on average. when I set it up to go live, not much happens. even when I run it live for a few days, then use that data to test, the test show activity that the live trading session didn't.



What am i doing wrong?

No attempts to trade? What output to the experts' log? Is "Allow live tarding" option checked?

There were 2 problems: I hadn't been checking the allow live trade box consistantly, and the demo account was constantly disconnecting.

How can I add more demo accounts if I have the name and IP:port numbers?

That helped alot. one more question: In the tester, you can choose "every tick", "control points", or "open prices only". when live trading where to you choose that option?
