Autotrade sync vs async

Postby t-rader » 05 Aug 2011

Hi,

Does the Auto Trading option below affect trade execution speed?

Does it affect code reading speed? ie stops at the line of code and waits to see what price the trade is executed at before continuing to the next line of code?

Mode Selection:
Entries/Exits are based on the execution confirmation by the broker (Sync)
Entries/Exits are independent of the execution status at the broker (Async)



Cheers,

t-rader,

Using sync or async mode should not make any noticeable changes in script calculation speed.
