Q: What is price slippage?

A: Price slippage is the difference between the expected price of a trade and the actual price at which the trade is executed. The larger a trade is relative to the size of the liquidity pool, the more slippage there will be. Dexter will show you the expected slippage due to the size of your trade, and also allows you to set a maximum slippage percentage. By limiting additional slippage you can protect your trade from poor price execution, which may occur due to price fluctuations from other trades executed before your trade.
