SLIPPAGE

I know SLIPPAGE happens but I had a 3 PIP AND 5 PIP S/L setup on two trades. I walked away and came back -2.2 on each.  That’s 5+ and 7+ PIP variance on each. Lost 13 total PIPS in one quick swoop. Didn’t see that coming. Just glad I’m doing well otherwise.

More than likely the Spread became wider when the SL was activated.

You had 3 and 5 pip stop losses? Wow, that's WAY TOO TIGHT.

Also, its Independence Day.....there was no volume. Consider it a lesson, and be ok with it.

To put things in perspective, 100 pips in EUR/USD isn't even a 1% move.
