!from strategy to broker mp synchronizer

Postby at » 21 Dec 2009

Does anyone notice that there is a new built-in signal called "!from strategy to broker mp synchronizer" in powerlanguage editor. Any idea what can it do? Because I find the marketposition_at_broker function misfire often, it would be nice if this signal can somehow keep track of the actual position better.

Yes, I looked at it and I think it has to do with the position tracker. But someone from MC is better positioned to answer on that.

You notice all the variables dealing with MP = MarketPosition.

PP :roll:

Would also like to know how to use this and implement into existing strategies since I often have the problem that the auto-trading messes up positions sometimes.

Could TS Support please clarify their view of "best practices" on this?

For those who may be interested in this sginal, this is the explanation from tssupport :

"The signal just checks your chart and real market position and fixes it if it is wrong.

TimeOutMS – a time interval between market positions mismatch detection and sending of an order that should fix it.

LatencyMS – a time interval between corrective order is sent and start of market position monitoring."

Many thanks to Tsspport who kindly provides the above explanation. Word of caution - over-compensation is another issue in using this signal when the strategy's trade frequency is high.
