API slow delivery signals question

I sending trading signals using API and found that usually after 13-14 PM. NY time signals delivery delays. Today I missed 2 important trades because orders I sent were placed 5-10 minutes late. I trade this system on live account. Both orders was executed.

Please tell me which signals in particular experienced a time delay. I will look into it. It would be helpful if you could tell me the signalid. Otherwise, just specify the symbol and order type.

I don’t understand. What do you mean by “sent” and what do you mean by “accepted”? Also, what time zone are you using when you list times here?


"Sent" means my local PC sent time (I have a log). "Accepted" mean time when signal published to subscribers. I use Eastern Standard Time.

It was my mistake in the last message. Must be AM not PM…
