MaxSpread (default value: -1.0) – the default maximum allowed value of the spread is provided by our server, but if you want to use your own value, then you can enter a positive value for the MaxSpread parameter.
Auto_GMT (default value: true) – this parameter controls the GMT Offset calculation method. In most of the cases, the automatic GMT value is correct. However, in some cases, you may need to enter the GMT Offset by yourself. In this case, switch Auto_GMT to FALSE and enter the value you need in the Manual_GMT_Offset parameter.

TicksTrade (default value: false) – this is an experts-only parameter, which activates execution on the trading logic on every price tick. By default, Wallstreet ASIA operates on M1 bar closing. All optimizations and tuning we made are based on M1 bar closing, so we do not recommend switching ON the TicksTrade mode, unless you are an expert capable in making your own 100% real tick tests and optimizations. However, the TicksTrade mode could provide very aggressive and profitable trading, but this depends a lot on the broker’s trading conditions.
