Hello 

I had a problem with slippage between me and signal broker in extreme situation (open 2-3 position in 1-3s) slippage is between 2-4 min. I rent VPS from MT4 platform and I have exactly the same problem. I think when the platform check the open position between me and signal provider every specified time ( for example 5 min ) release the is some position not open and open they with that big slippage but I'm not sure. There is any setting I can change to reduce that slippage to 1 or 2s ?

P.S attached file with my history check.

Possible reasons I can think of:

  • Badly coded EA (most probable cause)!
  • Problamatic network communications or high latency
  • Problem with broker
  • Problem with PC (less likely, since you used a VPS as well)

I would look at the EA coding first to find the problem. In my experience that is where the problem usually is and not the other two.

EDIT: I now realise I misread your post and that you are following a "Signal" and not actually using an EA to trade an outside signal feed, so please disregard my EA comments!

Broker and server are the same with signal provider.
