Hi All,

Is anyone else having trouble closing/opening trades to day. I was 520 up and decided to close the trade this morning...now is it down to 166 and the trade will still not close. I can't open up any other trades. There is no current messages on my account to inform me of actions taken. However, on the competition chart it says that a number of us are timing out on our requested actions.....

Regards

The differance in my mt4 account, and what forexdesk is night and day. THe contest is fun, but these hang-ups stress me out.. You cant even get a good flow going because of it..

Like right now for instance, took short at 1.23686 EU, closed at 1.2318, and still in, just watching it dwindle down to nothing

I can put up with a few time outs where there is a lot of activity within a 5 mins period, but yesterday it lasted for hours.....Just checked the trade history and it was taken out -234.....so I am out +700.

So this could be the difference between winning and coming last.

Lets hope that it improves....

The thing is, most are even limit orders, the differance from mt4-forexdesk is $1,400

and just missed another $600

Heck, signing up yesterday, took like 4 hours for my account o show, then could make a trade for another few hours..

I personally think we should be using fxbook or something, this is just to buggy, and i always have the same problems month after month..

Im a good trader too, consistently at 5% a day, but you wouldnt know it looking at my forexdesk, lol

===============================

I am a complete novice, but having to work all day at my desk, I don't have the time to study all that much, so if I have a spare 5 mins, I check what is going on and if there is something......, then I do make a small profit but then I sometimes leave it running and the next time I go to look at it and I find that I am swearing a lot!!!

Had a quick look at fxbook and have linked this to my demo intertrader account. So we will see what happens. 5% a day is good, so you must study quite a lot....Yes and I agree with you that it is buggy, I use some free charts that I check with Intertrader and normally they match on price and time, but using them here and sometimes they are 20 pips different. Also on closing trades, you find a difference on when you close it and what it actually closed at (and not in your favour!!!).

I trade high Risk, 60-80 margin, so really, 5% is from 25-30 pips a day. If you trade oanda, max units but 200 or so, and it means around 15 pips a day.. Have to be precise tho, no margin for error..

Learn to win consistently, and use stop losses.. Never allow your account to lose more then yesterdays wins, so you lose 1 day and not 30 days of work..

I have over 9000 hours of chart time, allllllot of time invested, its a process,

Best pips to you Bud,
