If you need data from LMAX data source, make sure you have LMAX data feed set up.

Connecting more than one LMAX broker profile is possible, but not recommended by LMAX.

Stop orders that are guaranteed to be executed immediately are rejected by broker.

Stop-Limit orders are not supported by the LMAX.

Orders are modified by means of cancellation and new order placement.

Buy/sell "1" with LMAX broker = buy/sell 1000.

Open position Profit/Loss is calculated by LMAX broker and displayed in MultiCharts.

Unrealized Profit/Loss for the account is calculated by LMAX broker and displayed in MultiCharts once in 10 seconds.

LMAX does not support Native One-Cancels-Others group. In this case MultiCharts emulates OCO group on its end. Simulated OCO-group means that all OCO orders are sent to the broker, price is monitored by MultiCharts and once one of the orders is filled, other orders from this OCO group are cancelled by MultiCharts. When one of the OCO orders is filled, MultiCharts sends a command to cancel the second OCO order to broker. Note that the second order may also be filled if price reaches its level before the cancellation is processed by the broker (see OCO-Orders Risk).
