Slippage during the Flash Crash of '19

Let's say I had a futures position in the Aussie or Yen that went against me during the Flash crash in early January. Even with stops in place, any idea what sort of slippage in ticks occurred? And would it be better or worse in the spot market? Any anecdotes or info would be helpful. Depending on the news or situation I know crashes can be more extreme, but I'm trying to determine what events might be an account killer even with stops in place. Thanks!

Yes, that's the one, thanks.

Depends on how slow your platform is, it's about 5-11 ticks from 20ms to 1.5s.

Spot is more stable if you are slow, about 5-6 pips from 20ms to 1.5s. But YMMV depending on your retail dealer/broker, I'm plotting the interbank rates.
