Most occurrence of slippage I've experienced is NG and YM, pretty often getting 1 tick slips with the occasional 3-4. 6e before the increment change was fairly reliable, a few occasions with 1 tick slippage, now tho its pretty often. My worst was about 6 ticks on 6e. I normally stay on the sidelines until a couple of minutes after major releases like FOMC, NFP, and inventory reports those days can be nuts.
