So the flash crash happened yesterday and I see some reports that customers had massive slippage on their stop loss orders. I want to hear who’s brokers managed to get low slippage, so executing their stops (and take profits) with minimal slippage.
Basically I was looking to open an eToro account, but on their own website some members are saying their stops were executing way below their order prices. The two brokers I am trading with had very small slippage of around 15 ticks or 1.5 pips. If you are interested, they are Forextime and XM (dot) com.
I am curious who else had good or bad slippage from their orders from last night, particularly if you trade with eToro. Please share with us, as flash crashes are probably set to continue as more algorithmic trading takes place, set to wipe out peoples accounts annually.
