When price spikes within a single M1 bar and crosses the level of a stop loss, is it possible for a stop loss to work? I have an EA with a stop and reverse that fails until the end of an M1 bar resulting in a great loss far beyond the stop.

Yes it is possible, you need to fix your code. It sounds like you do not have a Stop Loss set at all . . .

Except during news. SL becomes a market order and may fill very far away. Also turn on the ask line so you see the spread - Sells close at the Ask.
