Now that Auto Trade has the new user selectable "Close Position on Exit Signal", it would make sense to add a method of running the EOD "ToDo List" more frequently during market hours. Running the Auto Trade "ToDo List" at user selectable intervals: 30 minute, 45 minute or each hour for example could make for timelier exits.

I support this suggestion and would like to suggest an additional tweak or option. Sometimes, it takes much longer than usual to run the download process. Yesterday (for some reason) was an example. It may have been related to the recent PreRelease update which included a symbol list update. In any event, scheduling the process to run near the end-of-day, can be an iffy thing when these longer-than-usual data download/cache updates occur. By having the ability to automatically do a "refresh" or "pre-load" or whatever you want to call it to make sure that when you want the regular trading process to run, it won't take significantly longer than expected. And, perhaps including a checkbox for turning on/off trade execution at the end of this "refresh"/"preload" process. The point is, I would like a way to make sure maintenance-type activities don't delay normal processing at a critical time.

Thank you Jim and Steve, I am sure your support will lend additional weight. Steve, I agree with your suggestion to find a way to prevent interruptions due to excessive download duration which can cause Auto Trade to miss it's trigger time. Running the EOD "ToDo List" at frequent intervals may alleviate at least part of that problem.
