NT7 opens allways in sim?

I set NT7 (via tools/simulation) to not open in simu;ation, i.e. I UNtick the simulation option. But every time I open NT I have to manually change the chart trader from sim to real account. Is that normal? Why having a global set up if one still has to do it everytime you start NT?

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer


Under the Control Center window click File & check is Global Simulation Mode checked?

If it is that is the problem. There is also a place to tell NT not to always start in Global Simulation mode see figure.

Sim

ZT, in both places I had global simulation disabled, but still upon reboot everything comes up on simulation. I was told by NT rep that NT7 is built that way but does not make sense to me.

I was given a choice when NT beta 16 was installed of starting in global simulation or not. I chose to ALWAYS start in Global simulation. Just to be consistent. I then check the box under file when I want to go live.

Need to protect myself, as I have made trades over the years either way accidentally. Fine if you make a few $$, not so good when trying out how large a stop you should use & think it is SIM.
