Re: Latency. Please share experiences.

Hi Gerler that is pretty amazing time saving - any chance you can share your methodology Thanks. I think that anyone choosing to write directly to any broker's API is going to send their order on the tick that satisfies their chosen set of conditions rather than wait to send it on the following tic...

Re: Latency. Please share experiences.

I don't know if this is the 'main' cause of the lag being reported but you should be aware that a 1-tick lag exists, by design, when submitting 'Next Bar' orders with IOG-ON. The resultant lag is difficult to spot during RTH as there are so many ticks but the potential for adverse consequences exist...

There's no doubt in my mind that the goal of MC's PM is a noble one but clearly there is a problem with its efficacy. You asked: "Why most of MC clients do not vote for these feature requests?" Even though your post was not about making the PM pages/system faster, I think a lot of your ans...

Re: Loss of Broker Connectivity Alert

What is your final goal? Currently, there is only one Automate Trading Switch on a chart. This switch affects all the signals for that chart. Ideally, it would be possible to assign signals/strategies to their own on/off button on a toolbar or dashboard. That would enable signals to be turned on or...

With the new backtesting/auto trading engine it will be possible to group orders in different OCO groups according to user written logic.

If you want your calculation to start on the last bar but not with an Open value, you need to add a corresponding condition to your code.

Thanks Henry but if 'insignificant change' means one tick, then I would expect any and every one tick change to be treated the same (i.e. changed or ignored).
