What is slippage and why does it occur?
Slippage is the difference between your ‘requested price and the executed price’ or the ‘market price vs your executed price’.
Slippage generally occurs for three reasons:
Fast execution speeds from <1ms
We select the technology providers that give us the lowest latency for reduced slippage on your trades. Markets Invest hosts all trading infrastructure within Equinix NY4 data center and utilizes cross-connects to all trading counterparties for the lowest possible latency.
You can check your trade receipts and routinely see fills speeds of less than 1ms with one of our liquidity providers on the other side. That’s world-class trading!

Frequently Asked Questions
Slippage is calculated as the difference between the price that was quoted and where the order was filled. You are able to see if there was any slippage on your trades by querying trade receipt from within the client portal.
Slippage is primarily caused by a market movement in between the time it takes for the order to be executed and the order reaching the liquidity provider.
This is a function of the time it takes for the order to reach the liquidity provider and the time that it takes to fill the order.
Market open and roll over are times that slippage may occur as there is generally limited liquidity available in the market.
News events can result in significant market movements and increased volatility that can increase the risk of slippage.
The Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) is the average price of an order that is filled at multiple tiers of li+quidity. Larger order sizes can be subject to fills at multiple tiers of liquidity.
Depending on the market conditions and the quotes coming into the system from our LP’s, large orders can be VWAP’d if there is not enough tier one liquidity available to fill the entire trade. Depth of market can be seen on TraderEvolution and offers real time insight into the available liquidity.
