  1. Just wondering if this is real or if this is just a glitch that will get fixed eventually. I had some sell orders below the market on eur/usd the market just gapped down 800 pips closed my long position at a loss and went short more (which is now at a loss).

    If this is real its a DAMN good thing im trading with $100 lots as it will only cost me $31
  2. talk about selling the bottom lol!

    The market never traded there, it is a bad tick.
  10. How exactly do bad ticks happen and with how ugly they make the chart look why are they so hard to prevent (assuming that they try to prevent them)
