Increasing Slippage to Trade

Some tokens may have a 'Reflect' element to them. This simply means there is a type of Transaction Tax when trading those tokens. That is part of the Token design and not a feature of the Trader Joe platform.
Reflects on a Token typically range between 5% to 20%. Some even higher.
