Hi,
I'm new to Mt5 and i'm studying it using a demo account.

Could someone explain me why SL is not triggered at right price? I'm not speacking about slippage, but SL activation order don't use my position SL. Why?

Juast an example:

History (show only orders)

My SL is 1.10175, why the terminal send an order using 1.10176?


Here History with order and deals:

  History (shown order and deals)


Order for SL activaction is sent using1.10176 and deal is executed at 1.10178. That's should be slippage, right?


But why terminal does use 1.10176 instead of 1.10175?
There should be a reason of course, please help me to understand. 

Thanks

Yes.

That's a good question, I never noticed that. Maybe just because it's a demo account ? You should ask to your broker.

I don't think a demo account can change terminal behaviour.

Anyway i have the same stuff on others orders too. 

There must be an explication.

you in the strategy tester, check the variables when the SLis set.

you only see the real value when its done

This is not related to the terminal, the orders are executed on the server side. And I have no idea what is happening there, do you ?

That's incorrect it's not the terminal who send this order, it's a SL order on broker's server side.

It was reported here similar error on a demo account.
