I looked at GettingStarted guide, still have some questions about paper trading:
1. Is it possible to have one strategy in Live mode, and another in Paper trading mode? (i would presume yes)

2. Is it possible to have the same strategy running Live on some instruments an Paper on another? (i would presume no)

3. Main question is actually about how Paper infers execution:
a. market is 99-100, i put a buy at 99, market goes 98-99.
Does paper trading algo post an execution here?
b. market is 5 99 - 100 5, i put a buy of 3 @ 99
market is 8 99 - 100 5
then there is a trade event of 6 in the market @ 99
am i filled 1? or how much if any?

1. Yes, but.... Each instance of OQ can only be in one of the (Simulation, Paper, or Live) states. So if you want to run Live and Paper at the same time, you'll need two OQ instances running (which means two computers, because only one instance of OQ will run on one computer).

2. Yes, but ... You would have to run the same strategy (with different Live/Paper instruments) on two computers.

3. I will leave these questions for someone else, because they seem too detailed for me to explain. There are many other things such as fill modes, etc that can affect the answers.
