Hi,

From the documentations, my understanding of slippage parameter is that it only applies to buy/sell order, it doesn't apply to pending orders such as buystop/sellstop orders ,am I right? because my pending orders will have much bigger slippages if placed around news release, if the parameter works then pending orders should not be triggered due to bigger slippages... but all of them are triggered with bigger slippages...

I think it usually doesn't apply to pendings, but the broker still reserves it for very special circumstances, such as news.
