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.
