Hi:I am testing few MT5 from different brokers, and I notice that MT5 will auto refresh the server and auto connect to the "better" one*.
*the better is on MT5's standard but not user's standard.
I found this annoyed, and is there anyway to turn it off (so it will stick with the same one server)? (I didnt find any options in MT5 to turn it off.)
The reason is, MT5's standard is to choose the server which access to more liquidity provider (if the broker has more than one server.)
BUT, more liquidity provider does mean the user can fully take advantage of it, especially when the execution time is longer and the slippage happens more often. (And this is what happen to me, so I want to stick with a more stable server.)Any ideas?Many thanksWjack
Can you explain how you know which server is selected by MT5 (more liquidity) ? Also how do you know an other could be better for you ?
As far as I know the server is select by :
The connection of the client terminal to a trade
server is performed through special access servers, that are the part of
the trading platform. When connecting the best access point is chosen
(the least server load and the best quality of connection). The
automatic checking of best access point is performed every three hours
And you can change it manually.
Annoying feature I agree, specially when it decides to change server right before the execution of an order as happened to me today.
I missed an opportunity but could be a loss!
Should be able to turn it off!!
