am scalping the news in extremely high volatility market... i think my broker is playing some dirty games with me...
u know slippage... ignoring trail stop n stuff...

there's no way to audit my orders in that situation, but only by viewing tick data...

anybody knows how to perform that?!

thanks

Hi,

Rates only depends on your specific broker and liquidity that he can provide.

You have to ask them to provide you their dict data.

Also if you use EA for your Trailing stop, look at expert tab to check what's wrong if it doesn't update your SL correctly.

They will provide you only if they do archive tick data. I do not know if it's an obligation for brokers.

Also standart Strategy Tester has a poor modeling tick data.

In order to reach 99% quality modeling while running tick data it's to do this way.

But the thing is you will have to upload tick data provided by some Brokers which doesn't correrspond 100% to yours.

Strategy tester 1M tick data iis sufficient if you check higher than 10 pips in TP or Trailling stop.

hmmm

first of all... i really appreciate ur help.

at strategy tester ( tick data) at my broker terminal. i saw the price reaching my sl level, am not sure if this sufficient to let the sl triggered n not jumping by a huge gap, as my broker claiming.

second thing i didnt see any gap in this case, while when u had a gap, normally u can see it in 1 min chart!

3rd thing is my broker sent me a chart of tick data from the liquidity provider, it showing a big gap ok, am not sure if they can manipulate that, n every candle means 1 second there, is it?! i mean is the tick data means 1 second time frame?!

What pair are you talking about? what time? what day? what was the opened price? and SL level?

I do not think that your broker is manipulating tick data to show he's right.

Tick data is tick data... meaning that you could get 3 ticks data or more in 1 second if market is volatile or 20 ticks in one minute if market is quiet.

If it happens once, you must trust your broker has gap could go behind your sl and that sucks.

I can provide you with an EA that logs tick data if that helps. Of course that only shows you what you got from your broker, not what is happening on your broker's end.

Are you trading with a retail Market Maker?

Being Bearish or Bullish Makes No Difference
