    Hi – I’ve got a similar problem with OANDA.  Twice I got stop losses hit by a “high ask” but price never actually reached my stop loss and the order was canceled…  I missed out on 2 very good trades (about 50 pips).  I contacted them and they treated it as “normal procedure”.  Is it?
    Being in the UK who do I contact if not? Thank you!!

      You could have been the victim of slippage. Did you get stopped out during a high risk event such as the release of a major news report (e.g. interest rate decision, non-farm payrolls, etc.)?
