does any one know what is acceptable slippage with brokers? and why is can be so bad sometimes.been testing live ea account with 0.01 lots with tickmill broker. good reputation ;nice spreads as seen on brokers quote spreads on this site.all have 20 pip hard stop loss. market orders.these are a list of actual end results stop loss. gbp/nz 75.7 pips gbp /aud 69.8 pips. nz/chf 51.2 pips. aus/usd 40.5 pips. gby 32.4 pips usd/jpy 25.2 27.9 on different days and times.250 trades.most are close to 20 pips stop loss.i am sure broker would say that is just what the market offered at time.i should not have to second quess broker anyway.the worst stop loss with less pips was eur/gbp 16.4 pips.

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))

I don’t think that slippage is always caused because the broker is at fault. It can be there because of a number of reasons.

Such moments are not a rarity.
And it is really a big trouble.
You need to watch the situation accurately to understand whether it is an accident or a pattern.

I will agree that this is not a big miracle, but it certainly should not reach such monstrous figures. Although it could definitely happen because of some fundamental analysis events.

I agree with your opinion.
