    Historical FX Stop Order Fill Statistics 


    We customise setups to cater for different flows and to strike the desired balance with each client between tight spreads and low rejection rates.

    Market orders are truely filled 'at-best' with clients receiving both positive and negative slippage. If FX trade requests on 'published quotes' are rejected due to exceptionally fast markets i.e. when the price moves too much against or in favor of the client, this happens equally and symmetrically in all instances.
