Is there a way to use any other time from within an MT4 EA or script, other than the server time? For example could one use windows system time to signal the start of some procedure, rather than have to wait on the server time to update, which can take 20 seconds in some cases ? I don't need any coding help, i just need to know if a work-around is possible.

 

Cheers.
