Order logic for Gain

I suppose this is an issue for any strategy that is implemented through a broker with a spread...

Gain will not fill if you place a limit order and the market moves greater than one pip away from the current price Bid or Ask. Then the order cancels.

I would figure this is going to effect limit and buy/sell at bar close. Anyone with practical experience want to chime in what logic they used to get the best price?

--seems like GetCurrnetBid/Ask() gives decent fills. Of course there is the chance that the market runs and the order doesn't fill, but so far I'm filling -(1-2) pips which is the spread anyway.

--Entering at the market fills -(3-4) pips consistently

--Entering on the close doesn't seem to work. .
