Using MT4 on the FTSE, on 2019-10-16, I set an automated position with:

- Open: 7203.7
- Stop Loss: 7193.7
- Take Profit: 7208.9

At 06:15:07 the position opened at 7203.8 and at 06:15:49 it closed at 7204.3

Why?

On the 1 minute time frame, the candle at 2019-10-16 06:15 shows:

- Open: 7199.8
- High: 7205.8
- Low: 7198.8
- Close: 7204.0
