DislikedI have to disagree. What you call slippage, from my point of you is just market conditions. When you trade with a real ECN broker, you are connected to the real Ask & Bid market that changes every second. Therefore, it is obvious that the price might change from the moment you send the order to the execution. I trade also stocks and you cannot avoid it- this is how the real market works. I prefer trading with real ECN brokers such as FXCM or sunbirdfx or Alpari UK rather than getting requotes from market makers that "guarantee" stop-loss orders....Ignored
Its not real market - it cannot be compare to stocks or futures. If You are trading with what You call real ECN - it can have Market Maker as one and only Liquid Provider... And slippages are in many times fault of broker - because of having wrong LPs, too few LPs, too many LPs (Your order can go to 1 - he will reject and than it will go to antoher - on Forex its loose of money by slippage)
When I begin to trade on Dukascopy few yrs ago I was so happy thinking - now I have right broker - giving real market conditions. And that was just WRONG - it gave his little liquidity - nothing to compare with REAL Market.
Untill Forex become regulated and have some big center (centers) its just searching for best broker - and remember ECN is not real market conditions.
