    Error message order has exceeded account equity

    Hello

    I've posted this error before but it appears the thread has been deleted.

    I am still have the problem of my strategies being stopped with an error message that says the account equity has been exceeded.

    Jason suggested that I increase the initial cash in the sim tab, please see below.
    I am doing 1 lot futures orders an 100k fx orders with my script so nothing large at all, and I have set account equity at 10m.

    I am however running 11 scripts concurrently, 7 fx, 1 commodity and 3 index futures, but rarely does more than 4 instruments have positions at the same time.

    Any idea what is causing the error?

    Also, the error occurs when there are 2 or 3 other positions open.

    Hello John833,

    Thank you for your post.

    After you have set your Initial cash value please reset your simulator account for this to take affect. To reset the simulator please go to Tools-->Options-->Simulator tab-->Reset. Keep in mind this will delete all previous trade history.

    Please let me know if the isssue persists after this procedure.

                I would appreciate some help on this problem.

                After corresponding with Chris in this thread I sent the trace file as requested. His answer was to create a new database file for my ATM Strategies.
                If he had read the correspondence properly, I have already explained I was running my own script and had NOTHING to do with ATM strategies.
                The next email was from Ben and he suggested, that I go to File>flatten everything.

                Of course I have already done this when Chris said I should reset the sim account.

                The sim account balance has been increased to 50m, my trading sizes for currency rarely exceeds 500k, and I would have only 3 futures contact open at any one time.

                I am still having the same problem.

                I am a NT licence holder, and have been programming my script for over a year so I know a little about NT. So I would therefore be grateful if I do ask a question that it is at least read properly, an appropriate answer is given, and that I don't need to explain everything again a number of times.

                So I would be happy if some light could be shed on this. Thanks

                      Chris .Ok I have followed your instructions in your email and reinstalled both the latest versions of IB and NT. I still have the same problem.

                      I have attached the trace file

                      trace.witherror121209.txt


                      With the greatest respect Chris, if you are unable to offer a solution to this, I would appreciate if you could offer this problem to someone at NT than could.


                      Thanks

                        Here's another error that's just occurred.

                        Only had 1 other position open which was a FX position of 100k euro.

                        FYI The account size I've set is at 50m

                            OK that fine, but if Chris doesn't know how to solve this problem, it doesn't help much does it?

                            And the reason I would like to keep this open in the forum, is I don't want this problem to be ignored or brushed under the carpet.
