large negative slippage
« on: October 31, 2021, 03:51:59 am »
When I checked the Trade History, I found that a stock with a price around USD 40 executed for a long position with a large negative slippage -5.04. I checked 1 min chart but could not find any such large movement. That position is small enough with Value around USD 5,000. The Fill Time shows 0.821.

I'm wondering what happened with PTL Trader then.

Please note the slippage reported is not a difference in price filled, it is a difference in position value (price * quantity).

Nothing is wrong with PTL Trader.

Oh, I didn't know that.
I'm relieved.

Thank you for your support!
