wow huge slippage followed by shutdown at OANDA on Fed news
its a bucket shop. what did you expect?
Better off swing-trading with this outfit.
They are okay otherwise.
Due diligence would indicate this has always been the case.
If you want to trade news, trade Futs.
what news ? what time was the 'shutdown' ?
Yesterday, 100+ pip pop was data dump of news from the Fed. Wasn't a scheduled release as far as I know.
my charts show the move in EUR/USD happened over several minutes.. wasnt exactly a 10 second spike.
Why would they stop quoting?
they did it again today, at some point EUR/USD spiked up, OANDA slowed down and then shut down.
The new platform absolutely sucks , I would say those problems are not at all fortuitous .
And there it goes...........:eek:
Hey, it's back on.
I don't scalp, I was never very good at it, but the off and on with the platform would preclude any news trading.
