TS2 MT4 price discrepancy

Postby Bebbspoke » Wed May 11, 2016 6:29 am

Hi Peoples; -

Please can someone explain why that when running TS2 and MT4 (demo accounts) together on the same machine and therefore (presumably) the same source feed....

That there appears to be a price difference of ~ 0.5 pip between the two packages? - such is present on all instruments as so far observed.

The actual quoted Sell & Buy rates are far more similar but may still be seen to differ by +/- 0.1 pip

A comparison of Indicator values (e.g. Bollinger Bands) may show considerably worse discrepancy despite accounting for the option of using Open or Close price within TS2.

I find such discrepancies most perplexing and request a rational explanation as to why such occur.

Thank you,

Hi Bebbspoke,

Regarding your question, please see the following information (from fxcm site):
MT4 Quote Throttling: The potential exists for variations in pricing displayed between servers. These differences do not have an impact on prices available for execution but can impact the prices used to trigger resting orders.
I have another one question for you: Which connections do you use in TS and MT4?
