Do you use Synchronous or A Synchronous option trading you strategy on MultiChart?


I’m just starting to develop some strategies in MultiCharts and just ran into the difference between these two. Which makes sense for what situation?


I personally prefer ‘Synchronous’ mode. I don’t care much where the strategy conditions say the entry should be. I do, however, care what type of fill I’m able to get in real life. So in my case it makes sense just to use Synchronous mode.

I think if I had a control account, or multiple accounts trading the same strategy, then maybe I’d consider using A Synchronous just because some of the entries wouldn’t all get the same price fill, so rather than average it out, I could just see what the strategy is looking like as far as entry conditions.
