Placed my first US stock trade today using IB. Buy stop JSDA qty 670 @ 9.56 stop @ 8.65 Got filled at avg price 9.75 and stopped out at 8.51 all within the opening few minutes Nice slippage ?? I've been trading Aussie stocks for several years successfully, however I very rarely get slippage greater than several ticks. My trading style is basically a breakout trader using price & volume patterns as the trigger. Stops are set 2atr or greater from close. Use end of day data only, place orders prior to market opening. Check positions end of day to adjust stops, heat, % risk etc I notice a lot more volatility in US stocks and want to know what order types the experienced traders would recommend to minimise slippage like above?
