when doing backtesting with the auto trade replay, does the jumps in minutes or seconds make a difference when my algo is based on delta bars vs. using 5 min bars or 500 contracts volume bars?
would it be better do the jumps in 1 seconds X speed of 100000 vs. jumps of 1 minute X speed of 10000?
thanks

Are you referring to the Intraday Data Storage Time Unit? It should be 2 seconds or less for non-time-based bars.

Please read the documentation for the Replay Window for information about that setting. And for further help you need to have a paid account.

You have a misunderstanding of what that setting is for. It is completely unrelated to a back testing and is not even used while the replay is running.
