Hello, many retail FX shops do not allow the user to submit limit buy or sell orders within or near the current quote. E.g. if EURUSD is 1.2060 - 1.2064, many firms will not allow the user to submit buy or sell limit orders within 1.2055 - 1.2069. You can place limits only away from the current mkt by a certain amount. Does anyone know the reason for that behaviour ? The only thing I could imagine, is to disable the user from taking advantage of small and frequent 1-2 pip moves, and therefore minimizing the effective spread paid.
