economic news in MT5
« on: August 23, 2019, 09:36:15 PM »
Very specific concern I have.

Ao, as I perceive, broker (broker's server) obtains economic news not exactly on announcing time. Let's say non farm payrolls announced 15:30:00:000 in USA, but broker's server is in London. Information should go long way throught all the Atlantic from USA to England. Even more longer time is needed to reach from broker's server to trader's MT5 (I concern MT4 obsolete allready).  So, is it possible to see somewhere in MT5 platform times information get in server and in platform?

You will still need some time to read the announcement in the platform, no? It will take much longer time than, probably a couple of seconds

It probably means that your broker is taking news from somewhere (i.e. Reuters, Bloomberg) and uploading it to the platform. This is why you might experience delays, but they should not be longer than several seconds. I think that you might disuses your issue with your broker

Several seconds is eternity for news trader :-)

Astronautas, you are right. Indeed, when you are trading on fundamentals, then every second counts. I am not sure how to help you with this issue, except to propose you to start trading directly from Reuters trading platform. It costs a lot, but you will have 0 delays

I have read if some big trader they dare to pay big cost to get leak of news, so they can act early than ordinary trader, in certain case before news released the movement already high rapidly, but after news released there is normal movement, some said big trader already take profit before news because they act early
