Let's say that I always know at what price I will buy or sell limit (i.e have subgraphs).

My first question is;

Can I then use the provided Automated Trading studies (excluding spreadsheets) to control my working limit price AND (if I calculate that my price differs from what's currently working) update the trading service PER chart-update-interval, or is trading service messaging carried out at another timing ?

My second question is;

Can the orders be sent to the trading service on a "as soon as" basis, or is there a "on bar close at earliest" decision-logic limitation ?

Both the above questions apply to range bar charts. As you're no doubt aware; the tape frequently prints multiple times per second.


edit: I'd like to ask a third and forth question...

Is there any study that can have a bias set on the price axis ? The situation being that you might not want to reduce your price so easily as you'd want to improve it ...so you don't lose Exchange priority.

In relation to the above (i.e competitive trading system);

Are there safeguards built-in so I don't trade with myself ?
