Frequently asked questions

How are orders executed?

Orders are executed at the prevailing market price at the time the order is received.

Price quotes are derived from the liquidity provided to us by select top-tier global banks in the wholesale foreign exchange and metals markets.

What is slippage?

Slippage occurs when an order is filled at a price other than the requested price.

Our quoted prices are executable most of the time. In fast-moving markets, orders may be executed at a price which has ceased to be the best market price. Limit orders will always be filled at the requested price or better.

Do orders expire?

Pending orders, such as stops and limits, can be executed End of Day (EOD) or Good 'til Cancelled (GTC) on FOREX.com trading platforms.

End of Day (EOD) orders automatically expire at 5 PM ET on the same day the order was entered.

Good ‘til Cancelled (GTC) orders will not expire unless they are manually canceled or, if they are attached to an open position, they will expire when that position is closed.

Pending orders on the MetaTrader 4 trading platform can be set to expire at a specific date and time; otherwise, they will remain on the platform indefinitely.

*Refers to FX executions for the FOREX.com group. Please note that multiple factors may impact execution speed, including but not limited; market conditions, platform type, network connectivity, trading strategies, and account type. FOREX.com's execution statistics represent orders executed on FOREX.com's platforms during market hours between July 31, 2022, 5:00 pm ET, and August 31, 2022, 5:00 pm ET for all FOREX.com's international affiliates and exclude trades/orders entered on the MetaTrader platform.

Market volatility, volume, and system availability may delay trade executions. Price can change quickly in fast market conditions, resulting in an execution price different from the price available at the time order is submitted. Price improvement is not guaranteed and will not occur in all situations.
