I see this time difference of 6.924 seconds between the trade tab and expert tab of a sell stop order (don't mind the hour change because that is difference in server time)

time diff

My question:

Is the time in the trade tab ->The time when the request from my EA was "sent" or maybe i shall say "processed" by the MT4 terminal?

And

The time in expert tab is -> The time when i got a response that my order is open?


And

The delay (6.924 seconds) is the time for the order to be sent to broker -> executed at my broker -> confirm the order to my terminal?

Trade tab time is broker server time.

Experts tab time is your computer (or VPS) time.
