Order execution xTasyTrader does not execute any orders! Instead, brokers simply inform us of filled orders and execution price. If data received from your data feed provider does not match the quotes on the brokerage platform for an instrument, then the entry and exit price will not be displayed properly on your chart.

Data-Feed - loading of histories and real-time data
If the loading of histories (charts) takes too long or the charts stay empty after the loading has finished, then the FXCM server returned a timeout. This means that too many instruments with a too big amount of histories were requested. To solve the problem reduce the number of instruments from your workspace or the amount of history (candles) loaded in the charts. Read more about chart and history settings here.‚Äč

Important Note

THE BROKER'S PLATFORM ALWAYS REPRESENTS THE REFERENCE PLATFORM.
This means that the orders and market-related values shown on the BROKER platform are valid. The broker's platform should always be active as a backup to xTasyTrader. This gives you an essential overview of the interaction between xTasyTrader and your broker. Furthermore, you will always know exactly how your orders/positions and ultimately your account balance is displayed.
Warning! This does not work with the desktop MB trading platform.
