MT4 Requotes

Question

Hello

I am testing an EA on your MT4 platform. It didn't close a trade as it should so I checked the Journal and saw

2019.01.18 06:55:50.153    '199681': requote 24347.2 / 24348.8 for order #23294623 sell 1.00 US30 closing at 24346.8

This was a market order, not a limit order it should be executed at best available price ,I haven't seen any other MT4 broker 
use requotes for at least 5 years.

How can I trust my EA to run unsupervised when my orders can be randomly rejected?

Do you have a solution?

I am also having the problem of "requote" while using an EA on MT4. The market isn't moving especially quickly but about 1 in every 10 orders fails due to requote. I'm not using an EA that requires highly fast and accurate trades therefore I can handle a bit of slippage. How do I set the allowable amount of slippage to avoid "requote"?

 

Thanks

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
