The computer time resolution:

The indicator shows computer time resolution. Normally it is about 15-16 ms. This is important, for example, to copy positions from other MetaTrader 4.

Can you further explain how is this important?

I mean, it is what it is, what the broker provides.

How can this change anything?

We can't improve execution, cz it's not up to us, only to the broker.

A Market Maker with only 1 liquidity provider will, obviously, provide fewer ticks and with longer time between them.

Wheather the broker will fill our order at our price or not, is a completely different issue.

Measuring time won't improve anything.

We can't improve broker execution, but we can control our hardware performance. Each EA load CPU and RAM, notably if we use too many EA on weak VPS. Weak hardware can directly impact our expert performance, for example, tight trailing stop movement or copy positions between accounts.
