Slippage may occur in the event where the price indicated in the order is not available in the servers, for example, due to high volatility and gaps in the market prices.
In such event, the order will be executed at the first available price, irrespective of the direction of the slippage, either to the client’s favor or not, in a symmetrical and transparent manner (Symmetrical Slippage).
Instruments (e.g. shares and indices) which are not traded on a 24 hours basis, may experience a market gap on a daily basis and are therefore more susceptible to slippage.
It is important to note that Slippage does not affect the Negative Balance Protection and therefore the Client will never lose more than the amount invested (including any profit, if gained), even if a slippage occurs.
