NT's simulated stop - or - what does everyone use?

I have noticed quite a bit of slip on some of my stops. Today was a great example. I was short on TNA with a stop set at 45.89. The stop got hit and filled at 45.95. The crazy thing is, the data feed didn't even register the trade at that price (Something just doesn't seem right here - see the attached 8:49 fill...)

Anyhoo - I have been using the simulated stop in NT with the volume set to 500 and then fill at market. I am wondering if I should try something else. Any suggestions? Thanks for the help!

DTF,

Definitely don't use a simulated stop if you are trying to avoid slippage!

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
