    I'm thinking of trading LME and was wondering what types of slippage estimates people use (for typical trend following methods) for zinc, nickel and lead. I've heard $200, but from lookig at bid-offers, $200 looks o.k. in zinc and possibly lead but nickel looks like it might be more like $300.

    Any estimates would be greatly appreciated before I begn actually trading.
