Not knowing how many lots your EA trades each trade, with trade duration below 1 minute I wonder how much are the trades affected by slippage. What is your approach to reduce it when opening trades of 5 or more lots?
Definitely slippage is going to affect in each trade and of course in every system you use and it is not limited to our system only. Slippage doesn't have much to do with trade duration, but spread is a bigger concern than slippage when trade duration is less since you have to cover the spread in short time before a trade enters into profit.
The slippage mainly depends on your broker, VPS location relative to the broker and availability of liquidity when your trades are getting executed.
Regarding lot size, yes larger the lot size more slippage you will get and that's why we don't pile up the profits in one account and rather we withdraw profits and distribute the money in multiple accounts and try to use relatively small lots as possible.
In the case of our system, we get positive slippage in most of the cases because of the way the EA places trades. Of course, the EA has to be used independently in the account to deal with such a scenario to get positive slippage and not suitable for trade copying.
When we will offer the trade copying service, both trade duration and pip expectancy will be increased by EA settings. We will be starting a new live account with new EA settings when we will offer the system in signalstart.
