I think I lose about 1% a year to slippage. Mostly the bid/ask spread during the day. Moving to MOC orders might save me some of that 1%. I would still want to compare my actual trade prices to some reference. Maybe compare my MOC trades to the opening price and the next day's opening price.

if you are trading every 21 days and have 50% turnover in a screen, then you have 0.15% slippage on a trade. For a $10 stock, that is 1.5c between the bid and the ask and ignoring fees and commissions. Pretty good fills.
