Hi,

It would please very very useful if you can add 'Slippage' column next to the 'Close Price' column.

Basically, the calculation would just be the different between close price & SL/TP. In terms of pips and it could be +ve/-ve, though most of the time it will be -ve.

It will be a very useful measure to see how each broker performing and help to identify/monitor if there's huge slippage in certain trade.

Thanks in advance!

Henry

How would you know if it's in fact slippage or the user simply closed the trade before the sl/tp was triggered? If you don't know that, then it would be a very misleading metric.

I see what you mean James.

Usually if SL is triggered, it will be highlighted in Red
Same if TP is triggered, it will be highlighted in Green
So that we know whether SL/TP is triggered, and slippage should be calculated in this case. Else it should have no value.

Hope that clarifies it.

Yes color is the data to look at to include or not the trades into global slippage ratio.

But the color is a visual information... and I'm not sure it is possible to use it.

By the way, I still do +1 as it's a good idea to compare brokers.

You will never have this function : slippage and fxbook erroneous entries/exitst is very very bad.
