Hi All,

I am running an algo on local computer connected to IB Gateway. I have observed that orders are sent on right time by the algo (log files), but when I check  IB account, I was surprised to see that orders executions sometime differ significantly: from few seconds to 6 minutes ?!

I found out that my computer time clock was around 1-2 minutes behind, and this will account for 2 minutes difference, but not for the 6 minutes delay I see.

The issue is that if this happenes at the end, my order is actually scheduled to be executed on next day market open.


I also recall that some time ago, I had same problem (few min execution difference), when I ran algo from QC web interface using IB account.

Has anyone observed similar delay with IB?
