- Could the sim engine use the current bid/ask/last from real trading?
-- its more realistic
- Could the sim engine just accept market orders at the last, rather than being rejected for having no volume or current bid/ask/last?
-- as the demo is a teaching tool, it would likely be easier for entry level traders to understand. I know there are finer points invovled, but given that a lot of the contracts are illiquid in demo, but not in real, this might be an acceptable solution.
- Could the bug be fixed where market orders get filled hundreds of points away from the market?
