      Here's the log file. I'm using ER2 03-06. My datastream is from eSignal. I see on the log files, the third from the bottom, it says something 'bout Interactive Brokers and others, I don't have an account with any of them, don't know if that matters. This works during market hours fine, it's just on eSignal $PLAYBACK that my orders sit there in limbo. LIMIT orders AND MARKET orders alike.

        On downloading the EFS tick playback data you need to uncheck the option "Save Trades Only".

          That did it! Thanks! But now I see that when in $PLAYBACK, it doesn't actually keep a record of yourP/L's. So the only record of your trades are in the execution tab. Hmm...

            Not sure what you meanby "it doesn't actually keep a record of your P/L".

            a) You still should see realized/unrealized PL with open positions on the Positions tab.
            b) PL on historical positions can be reported by the Performance tab.

              Whilst in a trade, you can see the P/L, however, when you exit the trade that information is lost. Normally I would see the 'Realized P&L' in the Accounts Tab dynamically updated, and when out of the trade that information remains, but when in $PLAYBACK mode it doesn't show up either during the trade, or after I exit the trade, neither does it show up in the Performance Tab.

                a) Please send us screenshot of positions tab where realized PL is missing.
                b) On the performance tab you can report trades made up from executions from your playback feed as any other regular executions resulting from live or sim feed. If trades are not there, but you do see the executions, then please send us:
                - zipped DB (Help->Mail to support)
                - execution IDs which don't make up trades

                Thanks

                    We did not see it come through.

                    Can you send it again?
