Topic: Alpari UK Micro: wrong SL with ATR Stop Exit (trade log attached)

Hi all,

again on the ATR Stop Exit condition.
I have problems with my Alpari Micro Account: the stop losses are clearly wrong (in this case the multiplier is 3.80). The problem occured both with USDJPY and GBPUSD with strategies in H4 and D1 Timeframes. I tried to postpone the modification of the SL after the order send when starting the MT4 EA, but the result is the same. Besides that, I realized that the ATR initialization in MT4 is not the reason (I initialized it manually) of this problem, as stated in a previous post.

I attach the trade log, hoping that it would help to solve this frustrating issue.
