Got a 16 tick slippage on a stop that was working at the exchange on the full size GC contract, during London (liquid) market hours two nights ago, FWIW. Can't imagine what a smaller contract would have gotten.

I was traded GC and Platinum spreads at 2006, whith a good results and sometimes i was traded Gold spreads whith 2 diff months. At this time inter-comm. margin was only 50$ and it was far better open an spread if your strategy needs more than 1 day.

Normally, i was spread only at profit positions .

Think about it... it's better that 16 points.

Slippage like that is too much for my small account. I shure would like to surf one of those big GOld waves one day.

I stay out of even the more liquid markets during news. I was warned in a couple of books. But on my third day of live trading I clicked buy market in a surge in the ES and my order was filled splitseconds later 6 points above my intended entry point..... At the top. I retraced almost as fast. i was using a mental stop and my mental stop got jumped by 12+ ticks and I puked out. Then it went back in my original direction for what would have been a profit had I taken the heat.
I learned 3 lessons that day. ..........For the price of one.

You Fail. You Fail Again. Then You Fail Better.

I don't know of any other way to make progress in any field without the above.

Still trading them? How do you trade them directionally as spreads? Not familiar with it really.

Hi, FOp ...actually not. But it's easy if you make position trading, only starts whith an profitable position and before close the market or when you see a good momentum at your side , open spread.

There is more but it's a very big theme (cover your spread whith an option and make it a more complex) etc. etc....



Good Trading
