Can you post your trade details so I can compare price and time to understand what slippage I am getting ?

Note my spread (IC Markets) is 200-240 points (at the end of Asian session).

Hello Andrew.

Will the EA map USTEC to NAS100 ?

At the moment not but we will add a auto mapping function the the next update.

Given that, should there be the ability to specify a larger "slippage" value indexes vs FX?

Yes, I agree. We will add another input parameter so that slippage can be specified for FX and and indicis.

Can you post your trade details so I can compare price and time to understand what slippage I am getting ?

Your order was executed at a better price.
13592.48 was the price from the EA and 13590.70 was the price on your terminal.

The price difference (in your favor) was 1.78.

Yesterday one GBPUSD trade was closed by SL.
USTEC trades showed mixed results with just a small gain at the end of the day. Most USTEC trades got stopped out at BE.
The USTEC swing trade is still open. See also screenshot below.

Trading is not linear and often it works like this. 4 steps forward, 3 steps back, 5 steps forward, 1 step back, 9 steps forward, 3 steps back, 4 steps forward, 5 steps back, 6 steps forward and so on and so on.

There is an element of uncertainty involved. We cannot control how much profits we make but we can control trading decisions and risk either by ourselves or with a software. By focusing on that what we can control, we make sure that the desired profits follow.

I could not agree more with your comments and remarks. We are running a marathon. It takes time and patience.

Thankyou. re the 5000ms timeout - what has timed out ? Is that a connection issue with your server or something else ?

I guess as I already have slippage Slippage =40 and Max time Delay = 30 seconds I will just have to accept it will miss some trades and await the update where I can specify different slippage for index.
