Fundamental flaw with buy stop/sell stop orders

#1 Postby haribos » Sun Nov 03, 2019 12:55 pm

If you pause testing and place a buy stop or sell stop order and then move to the next bar, if executed on the open of this bar, the order open price should be the open price of the bar. Instead you get the price that you placed the buy stop or sell stop order at. This is completely wrong!
You only get the order price if you place limit orders not stop orders. This lack of slippage completely invalidates testing of many strategies. Please fix this fundamental error ASAP.

Hello,

As far as I know, our software works the same way as MT4 trading platforms in this situation.

Can you please send a screenshot of the issue to us by email support@forextester.com so we can try to reproduce this issue on our side and fix it in the next program version?
