In the FundedNext Challenge and FundedNext Account, orders are executed on simulation of the real market execution model. This means that orders placed on any FundedNext trading platform may not be guaranteed to be filled at the requested price.
Instead, the order will be filled according to the prevailing market conditions, order book, and availability of the required volume at that price. Thus, the discrepancy between the requested price and the filled price of an order is not unique to our platform—it's a common experience in trading, regardless of the firm, brokerage or any financial markets.
Technically, clients' initiated orders will be executed on a simulated real market quotes using FundedNext's liquidity providers. Consequently, clients' orders will be filled at the best available market price based on the order book and the availability of the required volume at that price. Therefore, clients may witness a difference between the requested and execution prices. It is important to note that, in volatile and/or illiquid markets, the difference between request and execution prices can be notably significant.
For instance, during news releases or market rollovers, spreads tend to widen considerably, also creating a void in the order book and volume availability. This results in a price difference, which can occur in both negative and positive directions.
