That's just because of the poor way NT handles it.

If you write your strategy properly (I posted code on how to do it in EasyLanguage, C# would not be a lot harder) then you will send buy stop and sell stop orders ahead of time, with limit fills and OCO orders, etc. This is assuming your strategy can make a decision ahead of time, which I think most can. All you need is an extra 5-10 seconds so there is no slippage at C2.

The issue with NT's built-in support for C2 is there is no limit orders, no buy/sell stop, no OCO. Everything is market, and as such there is going to be a delay for sending that to C2 and then C2 adds an additional couple second delay to provide for a 'realism' of the end-user getting fills.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
