Buy orders get executed at the ask price
Buy stop, buy limit, as well as take profit and stop-loss orders are triggered at the ask price.
As MetaTrader historic prices will not reflect the ask price for these orders, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org should you need more details about the execution of any of your orders.
