DislikedHi Chris, The last I heard the restart was 2pm Aust. time (before today). Is that correct?
DislikedIt changed a couple of weeks ago as the 2pm was deemed to be a bad time for the server to restart. You will notice that the server does not restart every day as it is only required to do so if the time is not synchronised. Also, it does sometimes occur around 45 minutes earlier if server activity is particularly quiet.Ignored
DislikedAs you are all aware the clocks changed in some parts of Australia this week, but they do not change in the UK until October 31st and in the US until November 7th. The time on the server etc is the same as always, but those areas where the clocks changed will be seeing things an hour later than normal such as start of the trading week and daily restarts.
We would prefer to have trading start earlier on a Monday morning and will be sending a message to our clients later today I expect regarding this.Ignored
DislikedSo does this mean you’re going to start at 8am Aus daylight time, which will be 7am Aus standard time?
DislikedFYI, Go is not excepting anymore US clients and they will issue a email this week to whether or not the current US clients will be shut down. He wouldn't say for sure but did say it doesn't look good. Fucking Obama.Ignored
DislikedI just put in for a withdrawl, I'm a little worried about them having a mass exodus all in one day.Ignored
DislikedGoM is based in Australia and therefore needs to listen to and take into account its Australian clients, otherwise it may as well move to another country and dump its Australian clientele and we go elsewhere. Australia is a different time zone than the USA and GoM needs to consider that.
FX is an international industry, a specific client or broker location has no meaning whatsoever. You want to be able to start trading when the big institutions do and to end it when they do.
The following is what I've just sent to Chris:
"[font=Calibri][size=3]The end of the New York session (17:00 EST/EDT, EST=GMT-5) is the generally accepted end/start of the forex trading day. Swaps are done at this time. Major bank servers are turned on at this time on Sundays. The majority of retail brokers I’m aware of start their trading days...Ignored
I'm a new french GoM customer since 1 month. I'm surprise not receiving a monthly account report from GoM, to prove my account balance.
If in future, GoM has financial problem, how can I prove my account balance to withdraw it ?
