Hello Andrew1.andrew1 wrote: ↑Sat Apr 17, 2021 2:26 amI am unsure that either of those conditions apply here and this deserves more investigation:
Capsmart is also with IC Markets (mine and his are both live accounts) - his took the trade mine did not.
1) What is the slippage (10) stated in points or pips? (I assume points ?)
2) Is there any debugging output in the case of slippage or other decision not to trade ? (if not there should be - other "server based" EA's I have do this so you can see what you missed and why).
Probably it will be a good idea to track all incoming ticks from your brokers with others, normalize them and then make your own conclusions.
1) It is in points.
2) No, because slippage is not a bug but it might be a good idea to add some info to the journal. I agree. Also, keep in mind that the max slippage input does not mean there can be no higher slippage. It simple means that the trade will be not executed when the expected slippage is higher than the input value. Entries are based on market execution and brokers do not guarantee execution at the actual tick.
I hope this helps.
