Slippage Model Future

Hi community,

I tried to apply slippage as presented in example in this algo.ref :

https://github.com/QuantConnect/Lean/blob/master/Algorithm.CSharp/CustomModelsAlgorithm.cs

I connect my contract to slippage via :

contract.SetSlippageModel(new CustomSlippageModel(this));

But it doesn't work, when i change "asset.Price * 0.0001" in the variable slippage in the public class, nothing change.

Backtest below with "asset.Price*0.01".

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hi Gmamuze Cht ,

When we subscribe to futures data with AddFuture, we create a universe of futures' contracts that are filtered by the function set by the SetFilter method. Consequently, we need to use SetSecurityInitializer in order to set models and properties of the Security object that represents each futures' contract.

If we want to set the same slippage model across all the futures' contracts, we need to use:

SetSecurityInitializer(x => x.SetSlippageModel(new CustomSlippageModel(this)));

Hi Alexander,

Thanks for your response ! Is there a same simple way to apply a model based on the % of volume traded ?

And i have a general question about slippage :

The minimum deviation is equal to the minimum price fluctuation, right ? Or is it normal that the model slippage above make a filled price value with lot of decimal than the original minimum price fluctuation ? And is it real to fill a price like this ?

Hi Gmamuze Cht ,

If you mean what the changes should be made in the custom model in the attached backtest, we just need to use a different formula:

var orderVolume = order.AbsoluteQuantity * asset.Price;
var slippage = orderVolume * 0.01m;

The slippage model is responsible for the rounding to the minimum price fluctuation. We can find the value to make the adjustment in asset.SymbolProperties.MinimumPriceVariation.

I Follow your advice and I update in function of my needs.

The result take into account :

- Size of the last candle (High - Low) divide by a %. (enable the correlation with volatility)

- The ratio of OrderVolume divide by the last AssetVolume. (enable the correlation with liquidity)

Final Formula : var slippage = (High[0]-Low[0]) * 0.01m / (orderVolume/Volume[0]);

public class CustomSlippageModel : ISlippageModel
{
private readonly QCAlgorithm _algorithm;

public RollingWindow<decimal> High = new RollingWindow<decimal>(2);
public RollingWindow<decimal> Low = new RollingWindow<decimal>(2);
public RollingWindow<decimal> Volume = new RollingWindow<decimal>(2);

public CustomSlippageModel(QCAlgorithm algorithm)
{

_algorithm = algorithm;

}

public decimal GetSlippageApproximation(Security asset, Order order)
{

High.Add(asset.High);
Low.Add(asset.Low);
Volume.Add(asset.Volume);

var orderVolume = order.AbsoluteQuantity;
var slippage = (High[0]-Low[0]) * 0.01m / (orderVolume/Volume[0]);

return slippage;

}
}

A Question, volumes given from the market data is the same unit than the quantity emit by the algorithm ?

Hi Gmamuze Cht 

Volume is the sum of quantity of all trades within the data resolution period.

Hi Alexander, it was not the goal of my question :) I am talking about unit applyed to the data in thousand, million etc.. I pose this question because for example on Dukascopy when you download data they propose this option to choose your volume data unit. In case which 1 lot of EUR/USD was not equal to 1 lot = 100.000 unit, it would preferable to rethink the formula below.

Ps : In My code upper, I make a mistake the final formula is not :

var slippage = (High[0]-Low[0]) * 0.01m / (orderVolume/Volume[0]);

But :

var slippage = (High[0]-Low[0]) * 0.01m / (Volume[0]/orderVolume);

Hi Gmamuze Cht ,

Ok. For Futures (and Options), the Quantity refers to the number of contracts. 1 = 1 contract.
