#### Topic: Sent order was different from open position

May I know why the sent order in the FST journal is not exactly the same as its open position? for example

EURUSD M15 An entry order sent: Buy 1 lot at 1.3613, Stop Loss 1.3583, Take Profit 1.3623

and this is what happened...

EURUSD M15 Long 1 lot at 1.3618, Stop Loss 1.3583, Take Profit 1.3623, Profit -3.00USD

another thing is that it doesn't follow my strategy...
from the example we know that..

1) The entry order is not match the open position by 5 pips diff.

2) Even when the FST open its position the s/l and t/p changed
*the t/p was 5 pips
*the s/l was 35 pips

I was testing this strategy and it went haywire. I'm not sure whether it was a bug or the FST purposely doing this. I check the journal on the FST and found out that it didn't follow the stop loss either the take profit setting. Sometimes it just took 8 pips profit instead of 13 pips. The trailing stop also the same, it supposed to stop at 27pips but it shoot up to 31pips and sometime more. please advice Mr. Popov....

Thanks & regards,

#### Re: Sent order was different from open position

The order for long entry was sent from FST at Ask 1.3613.
The current Bid at that time was 1.3610.
TP = 1.3610 + 13 = 1.3623
SL = 1.3610 - 27 = 1.3583

The reason the position was open at 1.3618 was probably requoting or slippage. You have to ask your broker for that.

Anyway, I checked your strategy in Alpari. (I set SL 270 and TP 130 pips because Alpari is 5 digit) And the entry order as well as SL and TP were perfectly set with slippage of 0.
