AHH! So it's not just me. I mean I was able to buy and sell when it was freezing, but I the 1-2 times I tried it I wasn't getting filled at the LIVE rates I was receiving on MetaTrader and so I don't regard them as executable. Even if the price was frozen on FXCM, and I tried to purchase or sell at that price, I still got filled at something different. Edit: And now everything is working fine, but this has been almost 3 days that at various times I've been trading, prolonged freeze ups have been occuring. In no way acceptable, for a broker who claims they do a lot of business.
