What is Slippage in Forex Trading? http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/Slippage.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! We've heard of slippage but what is it? Says we have USD/JPY being quoted at 110.56 - 110.57; that is the quote given by the broker. You bring up a trade ticket with the intention to make a quick buy trade and hit the 'buy' button for 10 CFDs. You think that you will be filled at 110.57 but you get filled at 110.59. If you use a market order you are subject to slippage. This is because a market order is an instruction to fulfill the trade at any price possible. You can avoid this by using a limit order. The amount of slippage will depend on the volatility and liquidity of the instrument you're trading. Slippage is also dependent on the market conditions at the time, speed of your market connection and on your broker as well.
What is Slippage and How to Avoid It? 😟🙂
Does slippage increases too in big news event even in ECN brokers? I am using FXCM as a retail/private and recently experienced way too high slippage during 1-minute scalping (20+ pips on AUDCAD) from the regular of 2+ pips.
I love your videos. You mentioned a trading platform, but there does not seem to be a link in the description. Also, it is avaliable to Australian residents? or do you have any good platform recommendations for Australians. Take care.
Stock Trading Slippage. Slippage in the trading of stocks often occurs when there is a change in spread (the difference in price between what you offer to pay the seller, and what the seller asks you to pay to purchase a stock). In this situation, a market order placed by the trader may get executed at a less favorable price than originally expected. ~ Investopedia
Trading stocks typically have the lowest fees on eToro, which is one reason why I recommend you stick to this market when starting out.
All trades charge both a spread and daily rollover fees.
It really comes down to individual trading strategies and preference. But to give you an idea, I tend to hold on to stocks for a minimum of 6 months and all other trades tend to have an average duration of about two-three weeks.
A final word on over-trading.
This is a point that I want to expand on a little more, specifically in relation to copying other traders. Below is a screenshot of my equity chart over six months. The red line shows the number of people copying me.
