More Information on Moving from Demo to Simulator:
With a trading interface open and active (either the Order Ticket or the DOMTrader®), click the Setup button and click Trading Preferences. On the left side, click Risk. Under Risk management for all symbols, there are fields for Maximum order size and Maximum position size. Both are set to a default of 0 or 1. If you attempt to place an order of more than one lot, it will display a warning. This protects you from accidentally changing the order size. The suggested sizes are 25 for the Maximum order size and 50 for the Maximum position size. Your actual position limits are controlled by the equity in your account and the CME Group margin requirements. The image below highlights the areas which need to be updated to prevent the warnings.
