DislikedYour not answering Seneca question. He ask if anyone "purchased" at 3040 (past tense) and sold at 3090 ..(past tense).. how anyone can take your money? In any case, what happened to you it is weird... it has no logic. Even for a scam broker. If price is at 3050 and you have a buy limit at 3040... the "ask" should touch 3040..and in a news dropping price a scam would execute you at higher price then 3040. .. maybe even the 3050 if they really scammers. No way they would execute you at 3100...is either the ask price did touch the 3040 or...Ignored
I had a large limit sell position above current price in USDJPY and GOOD data have been released. I am swing trader so no news trading. Price exceeded my sell order for 4 pips and then quickly reversed, so clearly in. However I was given 12 pips lower price than my limit order.
I do not trade thru this broker anymore as potential for slippage, i hoped removed, is clearly there. Some broker (not all) guarantee limit orders, but you better check.
