Hi ppan,

Synchronous Auto Trading mode (SAT) is a mode when orders are plotted on the chart only after they have been executed at the broker.

SAT helps you to avoid discrepancies between the market position according to the chart and the one on the broker’s end under the following conditions:

1. One strategy is applied to one symbol
2. The market position at the broker equals zero at the time when auto trading is launched
3. A trader does not trade the symbol via the terminal during auto trading
4. During the connection loss, the broker did not send notifications about full order filling (cancellation)

In the Asynchronous mode, the arrows on the chart are based on the internal calculation results in MultiCharts and might differ from the real situation at the broker.

it would be nice if there is a "Help" button right next to these selections, so that you can get an instant explanation.
