Hi,

For some reason my stop loss gets triggered early. In the following example I have a stop loss @1.11460 but the candle that causes the stop to be triggered only reaches a high of 1.11435.

Ask triggers a buystop. The high of candle on chart is the high bid. need to factor in spread.

Ah ok that makes sense. 

Do you have any recommendations for how to factor in the spread?
