Thread: Straddle trading EA

  1. #11
    91222I noticed something interesting. For the unemployment news, the system time on the EA froze 20 seconds ahead of the news came out. The price on the chart was still moving so that I found this really strange. This led in my pending order not being altered in time to be closer to the current price a couple of seconds before the news came out. I figure that this was the reason a few of my transactions weren't modified either.

    What may be the cause of this and how do I fix it?

    I see you may have a little coding understanding....the init regular runs when the EA is attached to a chart and deinit when the timeframe changes or the EA remains dispersed.

    The beginning routine which has the majority of the code inside it only runs when it receives a Price tick. If the broker doesn't send some price ticks, the EA won't run and etc don't work. They use logic like is that the current second of the day larger than the second of the news less SecBPO for example. When there's no indications for 20 minutes then the response will undoubtedly be no and the EA won't do anything.

    The easiest choice is to discover and use another broker. An option is to set up a program called MT4Ticker. What this really does is echos the price every 500ms or whatever you put it to. The end result of that is that the EA will run every 500ms. But....

    The problem is that the prices that the EA believes are right may be wrong causing errors in the EA and then the transactions should they get entered may find a lot of slippage. So altering brokers is the most suitable choice. I don't generally recommend brokers, as it is a personal decision depending on where in the world you reside etc. but I stay clear of any country I would be anxious to visit

    LOL. I like that advice. Thanks. I will start looking around to see if I could find a better broker.

    91222on average how much slippage should expect on NFP, I know it is dependent on broker and several factors, but generally how much should I expect if I trade majors?

    I agree with you, on AUD, It's OK but on GBP, there is a big gap most of the time, on NZD, the spread Are Extremely high
