Trading Sizes and Slippage

Discussion in 'Forex' started by swingtrdrt, Jan 18, 2010.

  1. Just wondering what size lots others may be trading and in particular, at what point do they experience slippage (and to what degree).

    Also, what would you consider to be the effective max lot size to trade with (without disturbing anything or raising any alarms)....if trading on say 5 or 15 minute candles and maybe making about 5-10 trades per week. In a roundabout way, I'm just trying to get a rough idea of the max lot size I can expect to max out at (effectively)..or at least what the upside could be.

    Ballpark estimates are fine and welcome. Thanks!

    Keep them under a yard and you shouldn't be moving any markets. Forex is very liquid. I think you'd be raising alarms at your broker first before moving markets. And that issue would be broker specific.
