TickTime

Minimum time in ms between subsequent intrabar function calls (TMF or tick) in trade mode. Default = 100*sqrt(BarPeriod), i.e. 1.5 seconds for a 4 hours bar period. Even when several price quotes arrive during that time, the intrabar function is only excuted once and receives the most recent price quote. Set this to a higher value for saving CPU resources, especially when several Zorro instances trade simultaneously, or for reducing the price request frequency to the broker API. Set it to a smaller value for reducing latency. By setting TickTime to a negative value, TMF and tick functions run at the given time period even when no new price quote is arrived.

TockTime

Time in ms between subsequent tock calls in trade mode (default = 60000 ms).

TickFix

Time delay to be added to or subtracted from M1 ticks in historical data, in ms (default = 0). Can be used for compensating tiny inaccuracies in tick composition that lead to backtest differences between T1 and M1 ticks, or for determining the influence of small tick time differences on the result of the strategy.

MaxRequests

Maximum number of requests per second to the broker API (0.1 .. 1000; default = 0 = no limit). Price and account requests, orders and status requests, and brokerCommand calls are limited to this rate. If it is exceeded, further requests are automatically delayed. Automatically set up by broker plugins that support the GET_MAXREQUESTS command. If the broker has a request limit and several Zorros are trading simultaneously on the same connection, reduce the request rate accordingly.

Type:

int
 

Example:

function run()
{
  TockTime = 1000; // run the tock function any second
  ...
}
