Good thing to improve speed is remove all indicators within the experts/indicator folder after installation of MT4. 2nd goodie is to setup needed charts and then click on market button, right click on any pair and click on Hide all......

   Steve,

If you are interested, I have attached a monitor indicator that I wrote. It basically counts the incoming ticks and then compares the number of counted ticks with the volume of the tick(which is nothing more than the number of ticks sent out by the broker). The indicater converts this to a score out of 100(ie %). Just place the indicator on a 5M chart.

My VPS typically runs at about 95% on average which means that I lose about 5% of my ticks. My home computer runs at closer to 70%

As you indicated, this would be currency specific but used on a busy currency will give you a good idea of the quality of your connection.


Kenny,
That's genius. Thanks for sharing it.
Best regards Steve

Many brokers have blocked ICMP packets past their firewall. It's probably why you can not ping the server. Try tracert instead. The last responding hop will be the brokers router/firewall, which should be very close to the trading server.

To add on to Barry's info, you might also want to check your net statistics to confirm that you have the right IP address.

Kenny,

Is it possible that Volume[0] also counts changes in other things? e.g. there's no price change but a 'tick' comes, caused either by some change in
1. contract specifications, e.g. Margin maintenance, Swap long/short. (infrequent)
2. change in margin currency price, in cases where quote currency not in the same denomination as margin currency, thereby affecting the pip value, e.g. indicator attached to EURGBP while the margin currency is in USD, no change to EURGBP price but GBPUSD moves enough to shift the pip value. (I suppose this could be simply tested with the indicator attached to EURUSD, can't do it now as weekend)
3. Or simply it counts repeated 'ticks' of the same price, which we otherwise would not see in the Market Watch?

Or worse, the entire indicators architecture (not specifically your indicator, to be clear) is lagging and misses some price changes? (unlikely?)

Consistency above all.

Could it also be that iVolume counts each bid and ask change(hence 2 for one simultaneous change), and since the Indicator passes only once for a simultaneous change in bid and ask, this will cause the 'Tick Count' to be less than the 'Volume Count'?

Giving the false impression of ticks being dropped?

It just seems strange to have the iVolume picking up something if there is a genuine loss of data transmitted. Doesn't make sense.


Consistency above all.

I was talking to a friend and he mentioned that it could also possibly be that the iVolume picks up all old ticks that the Market Watch queue might dump in favour of a better refresh. e.g. 10 ticks come within a span of 0.1 seconds and the Market Watch chooses the last one to present, while iVolume logs all 10 of them.

Consistency above all.

Hi Raiden,

Sorry for the late reply. I think all the scenarios you mention are entirely possible. I would be lying if I said I understood all the nuances of how the platform connects to a broker.

This is why I am not too stressed about not seeing 100% on my indicator. It typically runs at 90%+ which I would call a benchmark......if I see it drop below that I would start asking questions? It is also useful for highlighting periods where either the VPS or the broker has caused a disconnect.
