The MacroTrader allows you to create event-specific strategies. Strategies get triggered when economic indicators are released.
Inside the Strategy Tab, there are parameters that specify the day, hour and minute of every economic event and thus allow for scheduling of these events. There is a time slot of 5 minutes, before and after the event to account for early or late releases. After these 5 minutes, trade signals will be restricted by the software.
In order to make scheduling work correctly, please make sure your computer’s clock is set correctly. Especially VPS are prone to having their clocks out of sync. We recommend to download the “timesynctool” (http://timesynctool.com) and regularly re-sync the computer clock.
