Dislikedbtw r u working for MBT?Ignored
DislikedWait, what??? Desktop and the trade desk were fully operational? Not a problem!
So it was an MT4 issue. When are people going to learn?Ignored
DislikedLOL. This is why I left the forums. You can't say anything positive without being accused of working for them. Let me go find something negative to say just to even it out. I'll reply to another post. Hang on.Ignored
DislikedYour statement of getting filled all the time at the bid price does not in any way answer the original poster’s question. (and is a gross exaggeration.I repeat that you might be filled at better prices than "ask price" often, but definitely not the "bid price" that often)Ignored
DislikedYesterday's issue was not an MT4 issue, FX trading was halted completely.Ignored
Occording to the poster that I responded to it was he that stated, " where execution on Desktop and over the phone was still working fine".
Going by that I did not see any problem whatsoever.
When exactly did that happen?Ignored
Dislikedi guess u r missing the points here.I still like MBT's execution speed but there is some issues that MBT REALLY need to address and solve it,thus i raised the problems that i am facing,i am NOT defaming MBT nor saying that they trade against us,or some sort of that.I personally feel that MBT has slacken but this may be my opinion only!?Ignored
The sequence of the topic is-
I just started to play around with a MT4 demo account yesterday. However, I noticed that all buy limit orders can be matched at ask price instead of bid price, and I didnt get paid with all these limit orders too. Why?
Ok for example, I place a buy limit order at 1.6070(edited) when the current price was 1.6075/77. However, the buy limit order is not executed even if the price dropped to 1.6069/71. I thought my order should be executed before...Ignored
I don’t understand what 99.9% uptime has to do with the question you are asking. Uptime has to do with execution. Quotes and execution are apples and oranges. Banks have quotes whether or not I can get an execution out of them.
MetaTrader servers and Desktop servers are totally different. Quotes are built into Desktop servers. MetaTrader pulls the quotes from our API. They are the same quotes, but they definitely route differently. To ask me that question is to basically wonder why two of the same items traveling over completely different...Ignored
DislikedAgain taking ForexQuant's example-
Ok for example, I place a buy limit order at 1.6070(edited) when the current price was 1.6075/77. However, the buy limit order is not executed even if the price dropped to 1.6069/71. I thought my order should be executed before the bid price touched 1.6069.
Your pending order to buy is at 1.6070.
The price moves from 1.60702/1.60711 to 1.60689/1,6070 and then 1.60687/1.60698.
When the prices crosses over- it might be filled fully or partially at 1.6070 (ask price) or often even 1.60699 or 1.60698....Ignored
DislikedI have been with them for years as well (more than 7, to be exact), and here is what you should know.
1) If your entire year's trading strategy could be destroyed if your broker went down for 30 minutes once a year, pick a new strategy. Every single broker and exchange at some point in a year has tech issues. CME has been down. NASDAQ had massive quote issues for an hour on two occasions this year. Oanda has been down. All FX brokers have issues from time to time, no matter how complex their systems (OK, let's be honest, when a "deal desk"...Ignored

That is not what I want to hear when I have 300,000 worth of trades at $30. a pip on. I could lose a fortune waiting. It is a heck of a lot more than an "inconvenience"!!!!! It is unforgivable.Ignored
DislikedI have read all the posts. What has that got to do with anything?
Even though I use an emergency stop, it is close to 200 pips.
This would give me a heart attack and would be unforgivable.Ignored
DislikedThey had one execution outage for under an hour. In the last year. That was my point. The thing you were quoting was not from today it was from Tuesday. It isn't something that happens all of the time.Ignored
DislikedNot true at all, they had a complete MT4 meltdown, 5 hours offline in March 2011 live account. That is this year not last year.
