Trade Execution Speed — Poll

March 12, 2012 by

On trading forums and in Forex broker reviews, I often see mentions of the poor (slow) trade execution, slippages, requotes and delays. While I can understand the importance of all of that to the extreme scalpers, it’s difficult for me to see a real problem in low execution speed for anyone else involved in retail Forex trading. Yet, that’s probably one of the most frequent problems reported by traders in reviews. Is it that I just don’t understand something about how important the flawlessness of execution is for an average FX trader? Probably that’s because the smallest timeframe I trade in is H4 and a slippage of even 5 pips or a delay of 10 seconds means little there, but perhaps I am wrong. So what’s your stand on the importance of trade execution speed?

How is trade execution speed important to you?
