Slippage

Back to Glossary

Slippage is the difference (in FX trading its calculated in pips), between the price a trader expects to have their order filled at and the price that it’s actually filled at. Slippage occurs in highly volatile and/or illiquid markets, and is a natural part of trading. A good way to avoid being slipped is to use limit orders rather than market orders.
