As an alternative to dealer-style slippage, delay based slippage will allow configuring a minimum and maximum delay. The slippage engine will randomly pick a delay of X milliseconds based on the configured values (the min/max delay can also be equal if a fixed delay is required) and will execute the order at a price that is valid at X milliseconds from the order time.


If you're using an honest ECN broker and you know the typical execution delay this would be the most realistic way to simulate slippage.


Note: this feature was implemented in v2.2.1.
