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.
