Re: Stop Orders

Hi @Eddy12  You don't mention when or which market or the spread which would be interesting. Presumably it was tied up with the sudden and massive increase in volatility on the exit polls of the GB election. GBPUSD saw a gap (slippage) of 100 pip between 22:00 and 22:01 (one minute) which would have caused a lot of stop level and spread level resetting on the IG algos.
