Description

Zenfire local sim does not trade limit orders realistically. Limit orders at the bid and ask are executed only when all other respective bids or asks are filled i.e. last in the queue. Sequential ordering is not maintained.

Intended functionality per release notes;

What's new in version 7.4
The simulator has many features to make results close to real life - sequential ordering remembers your place in queue so fills are realistic. Partial fills happen once you reach the price, and if price moves away, the order is only partially filled. Live real-time data means trading on the same data that is used for live orders. This is a great tool for practicing trading before using real money in a real account. You can use the local SIM or connect to the server-side SIM that's now provided by ZenFire and Rithmic.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Place a limit order at the bid or ask. The order will not be filled until the price level completely disappears indicating the limit order is always last in the queue. This is contrary to the sequential ordering functionality stated above in 7.4 release note. Partial fills are not possible.

Can someone with trading experience please have a look at
this issue and back me up on this. It seems I'm all alone here which leads me
to wonder if this issue is unique to my machine.

Please someone do a test on your Zenfire sim and let me know
if I'm wrong here.
Thanks.
