EURUSD weekly Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "The Euro has stalled near one-month support after recoiling from resistance capping upside progress against the US Dollar since late September 2018. That barrier has also established a shallow but unmistakable series of lower highs. Indeed, prices appear to be stair-stepping lower, despite a lot of chop along the way."
  • "From here, a daily close below the March 7 low at 1.1176 opens the door for a test of the 1.1110-32 area, marked by a range floor dating back to mid-2017. Thorough invalidation of the near-term bearish bias is some way off, calling for a daily close above trend line resistance now situated at 1.1412."

What is Slippage in Forex (based on the article)
 

It’s not necessarily nefarious

The fact that you got slipped on the trade isn’t necessarily a nefarious thing. Unfortunately, in the past there were several Forex brokers that would take liberties with their clients. This was long before currency trading became much more common, and perhaps regulated in larger countries. After all, even places like the United States were a bit behind it when it came to investor protections in the Forex markets, because it was a sudden explosion of interest that caught many regulators off guard. Beyond that, it’s a noncentralized market, so it’s very easy to see how difficult it was for regulators to get their hands around the entire situation.

Most of the time, there is a perfectly easy explanation

I’d be willing to bet that over 95% of the time that I read some type of negative review online about slippage at a brokerage firm, it has something to do with trading the news. Trading the news is a sucker’s game, and although you can get very lucky occasionally, you need to understand that liquidity is a major issue. What this means is that there aren’t as many orders. So for example, if you are looking to buy the Swiss franc, there needs to be somebody willing to sell it. When you put in a market order, you are telling the broker that you want to buy the Swiss franc at the best price available. What do you think that means if that best price is three pips away? Exactly. You just bought the Swiss franc three pips away from the price you are looking at. This has nothing to do with the broker, they are simply there to match orders. If there’s nobody there to sell you the Swiss franc at the quantity you want, they are simply facilitating the order that you gave them.

The solution

If you don’t want to be slipped while trading, you can put in a limit order, telling the broker that you are willing to pay this price or better for a currency. If the markets skip your price, you simply are not filled. At least you haven’t paid more than you wanted to.

==========

Placing Limit Orders 

These orders are executed at a price equal to the specified one or better than that. Accordingly, no slippage occurs during order execution. The downside of these orders is that their execution is not guaranteed, since the broker may reject an order if the price goes too far in the opposite direction.

----------------

Placing Stop Orders

Stop orders imply expected breakthrough of certain levels. The trader expects the price to reach a certain level, break it through and move on in the same direction. The trader assumes that the market has reversed, having reached the support or resistance level.

When such an order triggers, a request to execute a corresponding market order is sent to a broker. The order is executed at the price equal to the specified one or worse than that. In other words, if the market price goes opposite, the order will be filled with a slippage. However, unlike limit orders, the execution of stop orders is guaranteed.

----------------

Placing Stop Limit Orders

This is a combination of a stop and a limit order. If the price reaches the stop price, a limit order is placed. This type of orders is used when a trader wants to set a stop order and limit the slippage.

----------------

Order Triggering and Execution 

For non-exchange instruments, triggering of all kinds of pending orders and SL/TP is performed by Bid and Ask prices. Execution is performed by the current Bid and Ask market prices at the moment of triggering.

For exchange instruments, charts are plotted and stop orders are triggered by last performed deal prices (Last). Limit orders are triggered by Bid and Ask prices. Limit orders are executed at the price specified in the order (without a slippage), while orders of other types are executed at the current Bid and Ask market prices (slippage is possible).

copy trader slippage

Aleksey Pak, 2017.01.30 08:59

Slippage during copy trading

The Slippage tab displays average slippage when executing trade operations on the servers of various brokers.

The average slippage is calculated based on statistics of trading signals execution at different brokers. Statistics is gathered for all signals at the provider's server. The difference between the order price placed by the signal provider and the order execution price at the subscriber's server is defined. The average value is calculated based on these data.

Number of slippage points is displayed according to the price accuracy (number of decimal places) at the signal provider's side.

Slippage can be caused by differences in quotes on the servers or trade execution delays. The lower the slippage, the higher the accuracy of the signal copying.

AUD/USD - breakout to the bullish reversal; 0.7393 is the key (based on the article)

AUDUSD Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "The Australian Dollar continues to struggle for directional conviction against its US counterpart, with prices still stuck in choppy range near the 0.71 level. Still, overall positioning suggests the path of least resistance favors a downside bias. An orderly decline started in January 2018 bottomed in October, giving way to prolonged consolation. Price action since then has traced out what appears to be a descending Triangle pattern. This is a setup typically indicative of bearish trend continuation."
  • "Confirmation is still pending. A daily close below support in the 0.6982-7021 area would complete the Triangle, initially exposing the 0.69 figure thereafter. The pattern would imply far more ambitious downside objective below the 0.66 figure over the longer term however."
  • "Invalidation of the bearish setup calls for a daily close above resistance in the 0.7093-0.7188 zone. A daily close above its outer layer may not necessarily imply a structural change of trend, but would probably defuse near-term selling pressure and set the stage for a retest of the January 31 swing high at 0.7295."
