DislikedThat makes NO sense!
They would need to create price movements in order for you to practice.
Supposedly the market NEVER actually does close, but being that the major liquidity providers for the real Interbank FX market DO close there is no movement for the retail market to follow. Due to no liquidity again. The price just flatlines, now the question arises, of how the market gaps up or down Ie: 50 pips if there are no trades being placed.Ignored
DislikedStill do not understand?
24/7 means that their Live chat works 24/7,
FOREX is closed during weekendIgnored
DislikedYou can still trade the price, the price just isn't moving. And their spread is increased. Sometimes I have "heard" that it was moving over weekend back Oct 2008... but that is second hand knowledge. And even then it was moving in a single jump not as a consistent movement.
The trading over the weekend is simply the ability to open and close positions on Saturday and Sunday before main markets open.
DislikedThis is a pretty funny exchange between you and the rep.. I hope you can see the humor in this!
But anyways, why you would even want to trade on the weekend, is beyond me. Practice, ok.. I get that, but just go back in the chart and move it ahead by one bar at a time. It's not as sleek as a market sim, or a market replay ability that some platforms have, but paper trading is old school, and not to be overlooked - it has its benefits.
As it was said that you can open an order on the weekend and wait till open, I would strongly recommend to...Ignored
