Not for Algo-traders. It runs the same code in 1x as it does in 1000x speed. There is no performance / accuracy difference.

For manual traders.... It's a bit like playing Tetris I suppose. I mean you can play level 30 on the original tetris where the blocks fall so fast that the game is over before you click the first button but why would you....

If you are trying to do this manual then maybe stick with 1x speed during the us cash open / close when the market moves crazy fast, and when the market slows down, maybe move up as high 25x speed..... so simulate the cash session's fastest points, but I see no reason why you would ever play it faster if your a manual trader.

Are there concerns or considerations to the practicing and learning process when speeding up Market Replay?


In the analytical world there is no such thing as art, there is only the science you know and the science you don't know. Characterizing the science you don't know as "art" is a fools game.
