Hi,

Can slippage happen on a forex/futures pair during the non-trading hour (22:00 to 23:00 GMT) during the weekdays even if one has a normal stop in place?

Hi, when trading derivatives on IG you are trading IG's market which tracks the underlying market so IG don't have a non-trading hour mid week. They do though around that time switch from more main stream liquidity providers to er, others, that might cause short term increased volatility and may even cause a spike on the charts which may be seen as slippage if you were opening or closing a trade at that time.

Hahaha ... yes, the 'dark liquidity pools' ... makes me think of swamps in dark forests where there are colourful toads and witches and goblins and all manner of sorceries and wickedness!  :D
