Hi,

First of all, I am not a native speaker, sorry for the inconvenience.

I am interested in the behaviour of the broker's trading server, and the bottle neck that usually forms when there is high volatility. I want to develope a system that measures this effect, to generate data to study its behaviour. So, I'm looking at the architecture of the plattform (http://www.metatrader5.com/c/16/2010/12/metatrader5_trading_platform_arhitecture_en.png), and I think that it could be possible by requesting some other minor information to the trade server, using GetTickCount() before and after. So my question is: Does a call for Account Information go down to the server that lags in high volatility? / Wich call should I use?

Hey,

I've come to a solution, if I put every call I can find to the init function and check the time, the distribution is likely to be multimodal, reflecting the diferent final steps in wich the call is answered.
