Tools -> Options -> Trade [TAB]

Set Deviation by default to 10 pips.

For every loss there should be at least an equal and opposite profit.

Hi Everyone,

If you are getting Off-Quote you can increase the max deviation to reduce the likelihood of it appearing. If you receive the Off-Quote message, it means the market price is different from the price you requested in your order. You can enable max deviation and set it to 10 or 20, which indicates 1.0 or 2.0 pips. This gives you flexibility in case the price has moved when the order is submitted for execution.

See xgavinc's post 2 up for instructions on how to set a default max deviation for every order.

And finally, just a reminder that trading closes today at 21:55GMT and will open again on Sunday at 22:15 GMT.

Have a great weekend!

Hello Dhymas,

FXCM has both No Dealing Desk and Dealing Desk forex execution. So our traders can choose which they prefer.

We recommend No Dealing Desk forex execution to our clients because it provides our best all around trading experience. For traders whose main concern are spreads, we offer dealing desk execution where the spread is about 1 pip tighter than the NDD execution. There are certain limitations to the dealing desk offering which you can view in the comparison chart here

Let me know if you have any questions.

same problem here, the only way to avoid it is to use limit orders.

edit: after setting the deviation by default in Tools/Options/Trade to 5 pips it is working as it should...
