Slippage occurs during news events and opening gaps that is @00.00 am your time during the week and @00.00 am your time on Mondays ,,,hence slippage varies among various brokers.No acceptable slippage has been set by regulatory bodies,,,just anticipate slippage at the mentioned times above and apply money management rules.
Slippages don't always happen through the fault of the broker. They can still be related to: - Absence of sufficient liquidity - not so much asset at a given price, the order is too large in volume. - Important political and economic news have come out. A large number of orders arrive at the market at the same time, and the goods are quickly sold out. - Internet isn't working well - connection to servers and trading platforms is slow, also due to the use of Wi-Fi and third-party programs such as Skype and stuff like that. In all these cases, slippage can happen.
Yeah, slippages happen and it's almost impossible to avoid. But I myself have a few tips I stick to to avoid slippages. 1. Don't trade on the news without proper experience. 2. When opening/closing a deal, always pay attention to the spread, the current volatility of the instrument and the opening/closing price. 3. Don't trade large volumes, especially in the news market, until you learn how to quickly manage the opening/closing/opening of pending and stop orders. Perhaps for some it is a familiar rules, for others it isn't. But they always help me personally))
