Paper Trading - How to change starting equity? Data feed delay?

Hi there,

I just started a paper trade on my algo, but despite my self.SetCash code, the live paper trade keeps starting with $100,000. Is there any way to fix this, as my algorithm is not ready to scale up to that amount yet. (It can, but performance is slightly different). Additionally, from the live console, the time displays in real time. Using a QC papertrade account, will pricing be delayed 15 minutes or realtime?

Further issues:

I have this schedule event code:

self.Schedule.On(self.DateRules.EveryDay(), self.TimeRules.At(9, 0), Action(self.BeforeTradingStart))

As mentioned, I just started this algo this morning (paper trade via QC). 9 am has passed by now, and the self.Log codes under BeforeTradingStart did not execute. (It's now 9:10), Could this be delayed by 15 minutes too?
