Interesting turn of events for an already emotional day. Just got off the phone with TST.

NO FILLS WENT THROUGH ON THEIR END. NO IDEA WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. GREAT.

Do you Trade->Trade Simulation mode turned on?

Also, look under File->Data/Trade Service Settings, and be sure that "Account" matches your combine account information. If you change it, disconnect and reconnect, then, start T4, switch to the correct account there, and place a trade in Sierra and verify that it shows up in T4.

I suppose this is not helpful after the fact, but if I were you I would start T4, switch to the correct account, and place a trade in Sierra and verify that it shows up in T4.

Sim mode is on, and account matches up.

They think the problem is that I'm using a demo of sierra.

No, sim mode should NOT be on. You should be connected to the SIM server in the account settings, but Trade->Trade Simulation Mode should be OFF. Has nothing to do with being a demo or not.

Sim mode is just like it is in NT--it sims the trades within the program. This is a LIVE account you're trading as far as Sierra or any software is concerned.

I don't think so. SIM mode is internal like NT's SIM. You should be trading through the CTS SIM server, which should be recognized by SC as non-simulated.
