I'm planing to run two instances of sierra chart for two different accounts because from I have gathered you can't connect to two different trading accounts with sierra chart. So I would like to know if there is a study that you can run in one instance that would copy all orders and send them to the other instance of sierra chart running a study that could receive the orders from the first instance. Another words a trade copier for sierra chart!
All of these ways that Sierra Chart says it's possible are very limited solutions and it has no real value whatsoever, the whole point is to be able to manage different accounts at the same time, in my case it's a couple of family members that would like to open a small account for me to control, so I would have to be able to control the number of contracts to trade at each of these accounts, if I'm trading 5 contracts on my account I can't be trading this amount of contracts on their accounts unless I intend in blowing their accounts and that's where a trade copier would come into play it would have to let me choose the amount of contracts to trade on the receiver side. I know only one platform that has that but I don't like it and it can't be used for futures.

I don't see how it's possible because all you doing is telling your broker to put all the accounts under the same username and you are using only one copy of sierra chart under that username to send orders to those accounts under the same username. Whatever sierra chart sends to those accounts under that username is whatever gets filled, I don't see any settings in sierra to let you do any other way!

Infinity Futures, and perhaps other brokers let you setup block accounts, which consists of a master account and sub accounts, where you allocate the number of contracts that go to each. For example, you may trade 3 contracts in your personal account, and 1 in the sub account. All your trades would have to be entered as multiples of 4 contracts to cover all the accounts. Average fills are used so each account is treated fairly. They have a video explaining it here.
