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

    • It seems Natural Gas is moving towards the 2500 price area. This seems more likely than 3000 price area at this moment in time. However, Nat Gas, is one of the kings of volatility and it can sharply spike upwards on a moment of severe weather being forecasted which leads to more usage of heating and decreases the humongous supply glut in the US.
