I experimented a number of times placing LIMIT in Tradovate & Tradestation(same prices, same quantity(only 1 lot)) & for whatever reason it was significantly harder with tradovate to get filled. Watched as that price level got hit time and time and again and I was just not getting filled. Many times ended up having to get out at mkt. There must be additional reasons for this.
I think we all appreciate the hard work of the dev/CS team & esp. the flat fee scheme but the fills has been a flaw for me. Have also heard complaint about the abnormal size of slippage from multiple others.
Edit: Devs, from the 2 replies so far my temporary guess is orders are not “activated”(idk how) in a sense that would enable them to go live, until a threshold volume/# of trade ticks at the order’s price is reached, stop and limit alike. That would explain the slippage. Then it’s really not us few being fussy about 1 tick or 2… Thanks to anyone who has replied / will be replying.
