Trading terminal optimization

Trading platform optimization step-by-step instructions.

During high activity in the market, some users may experience increased Internet traffic, slower operation of the terminal and your computer in general while running the terminal. Simple measures to optimize the terminal can increase the performance from 5 to 70%, depending on the cause of the slowness.


The speed of order executions may be affected by too many tools open in the “Market Watch” window. To exclude this factor, unused tools should be hidden. To do this, perform the following steps:
