What is the cause of slippage?

Any slippage that occurs can be due to:

  • Execution time – If you place an order from your terminal and enough time passes for the price to move before it is executed you will be given the next best price, positive or negative.
  • Rejected orders – this usually happens when liquidity providers are unable to accept the order due to insufficient volume. The order is then relegated to the next best price offered by the liquidity provider and is filled.
