Not sure where the lag comes from to be honest.

This isn't part of my edge as I hold trades for 13-25 pts on the NQ (minutes and hours time-wise), but my stops are rather tight in comparison (4.5-6 pts) so it could potentially affect one of my entry / exit points.

It's one of those things where if it was a hassle to change, I wouldn't bother doing it. But if it's simple then what do I have to lose?

Imagine you live in a very hot climate and you are looking to buy a car, and the dealer is offering you a package that includes a heated steering wheel.

If it's free or almost free, then why wouldn't you take the upgrade? But if it costs $1,500 to upgrade and it will most likely not make a difference for you, then you wouldn't even bother.

In my place I need a cooled steering wheel, not a heated steering wheel ;-))
