Did I get screwed by my broker this morning or by the fast market? Times below are central. I placed a mkt sell order just 20 sec. after release of NFP data. I had to wait 38 sec. to find out that I was filled and at a price 15 pips worse than was being bid at the time of my order. 2007.03.09 07:30:20: instant order sell 6.00 EURUSD at 1.3142 sl: 0.0000 tp: 0.0000 2007.03.09 07:30:32: request was accepted by server 2007.03.09 07:30:58: request in process 2007.03.09 07:30:58: order was opened : #206634632 sell 6.00 EURUSD at 1.3127 sl: 0.0000 tp: 0.0000 Just wondered is this normal for most brokers in a fast market or am I being screwed? I use FXDD. Their spreads are normally 2 pips on the EURUSD but at time of news releases it is typically 3-4 pips (or actually 5 pip spread this morning). Is this typical? Did anyone else make a similar trade this morning and what was your experience?
