This is my first post here so hi all 👏

I currently demo'ing and have noticed my last couple of trades were stopped out way before my stop.

Any ideas?

Note: the daily bars don't show any spikes.

Thanks

Dean

Hey @DCAllen

Thanks for your first post. 

If your positions are getting stopped out and you're not sure why it's always best to check a smaller time fram such as minutes. 

Also, if you have a long position for the closing price you will have to check the BID. 

For a short position that's been close you have to check the Ask price. 

You can change the prices on the platform by right clicking> Price> change the price type. 

I hope this helps but if not let me know

Thank you for this info, I will defo look in to it as I placed a LONG (BID) trade on the Cable and got taken out of the trade again an hour later, falling some 60+ points off my limit order???

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Will look at your tips again to see how this could be as this isn't given me confidence to go live with yourselves.

Hi, can you post a snip pic to show the trade would help provide an answer.
