Stops on IB, again :-)

    looking to run a system for a few weeks on IB. It only gives me a few trades a day at most, with a good size stop a distance off. Which then gives me plenty of time to enter the stoploss order.

    How has IB been doing with NQ emini stops (buy/sell limits) ?

    How much slippage should I give ? I'm looking to enter and exit the market with stops, just with one contract at this time. I was hopefully thinking 1pt would be plenty, or less, 1/2pt would be great :)

    I will be around to monitor it, I was just wanting to use the "stops" as a way to make sure I get in at the set point I wanted (and out:)

    Thanks, Andy
