The time that silent closed the trades, not just NU but every pair had a big slippage. I had a trade, GBPNZD on another broker and i saw the slippage touching 20 pips going to 18 and 16 and coming back. And i saw even in EURUSD the slippage was too much. Its the low liquidity and nothing else is what i feel. Jusy my opinion.
    Yes that is true. Agree with SmartTrader.

    Thanks for the heads up Spacey, I may try google to see if there are any brokers that still offer weekend trading to help make a decision on closing trades. Would be nice to see where price is before pulling the trigger.

    Hi Guys, for those of you that still have trades open you can download the Oanda platform, it normally shows you where price is at least 2 hours before your MT4 terminals start Sun/Mon.

    This will give you prior notice to see where price is so that you can ride out a possible retracement that SS was hoping for or if price has gone North (pain).

    I did this about 6 years ago, I am not sure if Oanda still open early as I have not used them for many years.

    Guys I don't like commenting on other traders threads but with regards to slippage the only reason you had slippage was any trades closed late in friday's trading session would have experienced slippage due to low liquidity at that time as some banks were already closed for the week. Many banks close at 4pm eastern and some stay open till 5pm eastern. So it's not your brokers fault as they don't control when banks shut down for the week.

    Regards

    Viper

    Had the same slippage problem on Armada Markets over 10pips. Maybe there's a over load of subscribers lol

    That's insane slippage indeed. Get in contact with Axi and ask for compensation.

    This is a wise option, take distance and perspective. There is no hurry IMO..
