Slippage is known as the difference between the expected price of a trade and the rate at which the trade is executed. Slippages are frequent during higher volatility periods when market orders are used. They also occur when large orders are performed at the time when there may not be enough interest at the desired price level to maintain the expected price of the trade.
In short terms, slippage happens when a trader gets a different price at the time the trade is made than the amount he expected when he entered the trade. It can happen to any trader regardless if he’s trading stocks, currencies, or futures. Exness guarantees no slippage for almost all pending orders executed at least three hours after the opening of trading on a particular FOREX instrument.

In other remaining cases, the order execution price will correspond to the price specified in the order.
