According to my observations the delay is about 5 seconds (for oil news). I have not collected extensive statistics.

I think it is not bad. Considering that other sources have delays of several minutes.


No, five seconds is out of the question. Perhaps the rendering/updating of the website page may have created this impression.

Internally, we have implemented for the MT5 trading platform a rltime brodcast streaming of all events without delays. All that remains is to implement it.

The site cannot be parsed, there will be an automatic ban.

Wait for native calendar integration in MQL5. We will do this within the next 2-3 releases.

That's my point, how do I know when your integration will be implemented and when 2-3 releases are expected?

On the forum and in the release notes.

Well, since there are no methods of estimation other than visual at the moment, that's what we were talking about. When there are others, then we'll "look at it" in a different way).

Any suggestions for the calendar?

The MQ calendar doesn't seem to have a line separating the past from the future, i.e. a time cursor to easily find the next upcoming events? The competitors do. It's very convenient.

We implemented it a long time ago, including access from MQL5.

The next step would be to have a Calendar event and its OnCalendar handler, ideally similar to OnBookEvent.

To be subscribed by event_id code.

That's when you can at least check if it's the fastest economic calendar.



For example

value_id=75795 value=500000 name=GDP q/q simpact=CALENDAR_IMPORTANCE_LOW

75795 826010037 2019.05.10 08:30:00 2019.01.01 00:00:00 1 500000 200000 -9223372036854775808100000 1 0

Surely GBP GDP has a low impact on currency movements?

Although in your calendar on your website.

This news is clearly 'red'.
