I have a problem but I can't speak English very well, so I will try to explain what my problem here.

Pair: audusd-micro
Leverage: 1:500

If I set lots 0.1 and S/L 300 point then I lose, the profit will be a round -0.33, and

If I set lots 0.2 and S/L 300 point then I lose, the profit will be a round -0.66, and

If I set lots 0.4 and S/L 300 point then I lose, the profit will be a round -1.32, right?

But I can't understand about the profit order number 16694000, it is a normal profit?

I think I see the problem.

Both the 1st order (lost 0.33) and the order in question show hittig a SL at 0.92774, but look at the actual closing price (3 columns to the right of the SL).

The first order really closed at 0.92776, which is a very minor 0.2 pip slippage.

The order for 0.4 really closed at 0.92987, which is 21.3 pips of slippage past your targetted 30.2 pips of slippage. This mean you lost over 50 pips instead of about 30 pips on the order.

Was there a major market move at about the time the order closed? If a big news announcement came out, slippage like this could happen. If there was no major volatility, then your broker may have had a bad data tick. Check the 1 minute charts at the time the order closed and see if there are several big candles, or just a single upspike in the candle where your order closed.

Guess you need to change the broker. Robbing you with spreads is not a good thing especially on micro account, where orders are mostly not moved on interbank market. Try a couple of times more and if problem still persists take it over man..

But is it because of FOMC just now? I think it is because of FOMC announce and that's why a big slippage occurs.

Yeah, but thats a pretty big jump. I agree with pharoah, check the 1 minutes. If there wasn't such movement, time to complain.

slippage during news time is a great problem these days. Also brokers increases the spread to a very large value near major news. it looks like broker are intentionally doing such so that traders keep themselves in entering any order near news time.

Sometimes I think I have already learned all the ways that brokerage companies can deceive their clients. And then I see such comments and realize that there can be quite a few more ways and you need to check the company at all stages of cooperation.
