I am using DAS Sim Version 5.2.0.31  But I  cannot reset the equity.  I am right clicking the Account as you recommended below.

Hi Dennis,

Are you using the paid simulator or the 14-day free trial demo?

Could you record a video of what you see and post it on YouTube or email to the team? Thanks.

Hi,

 

I'm getting the below although the below is the simulator account.

 

Should I be worried?

 

I can't reset account equity for some reason..

You must be holding a position into the close that exceeds the Overnight BP threshold. Triple check that it is in simulator account and don't worry about it. Try closing the position if you don't want to hold

Thanks so much for the effort Robert.

Is it possible to set simulator stop accepting new buy/sell when it is over the buying power?

I always buy/sell too much and over my real BP.

 

@kelvinkwong0621 I think you might be able to do that under the risk management page. Should be right under where the Reset Equity/BP tab is!

@Robert H My settings are mostly greyed out in the Reset Equity/BP page. Any thoughts on why this might be?

Also, is there a place where I can simply change the leverage amount to 6:1 to reflect CME? Or do I simply need to do the math myself (eg. I want a $5k sim account do i put $5000 in equity and $30000 in BP)? Thanks in advance!
