Hello there wherever you are,
I might be tired this evening..... there is this operation that I see in the terminal history but do not understand.
This is within a scalping system that I am using actively.
The loss isn't much obviously but the loss in understanding is always too much for any trading system.
1- I opened a GBPCHF Sell trade on 9 Sept at 17:17:34 at current Bid price = 1.49808. My baby was crying in the bedroom so I set a SL (1.49954) and TP (1.49770) and left MT alone (yes, my baby is a parameter of my trading systems!).
2- At 17:21:55 the broker (Oanda) closed the trade as per SL setting.
However, the chart shows that the SL was never hit! The candles show that.
Where am I wrong guys?
Thank you in advance.

Thank you for your quick response.
The Ask line is the red line on the chart. I always turn it on and check it before I take a trade with a spread-based broker.
So if I understand well in this situation, the trade must have been closed because at some point the Ask price suddenly overpassed the SL price, am I right?
A clear response!
Thanks very much for your time.
