I run STRobot my trading robot on 3 different trading accounts. What puzzled me is how he performed better on one account than all the others.
I am currently gathering evidence to why. But here was something very shocking. I added the spread in pips to our STRobot Heiken Ashi cart.
When the markets close (at weekends), I have noticed that some brokers seem to move the price of their currency artificially AND ramp up their spread.
Let me demonstrate with some charts all taken as screen dumps at the same time.
The first one is my broker USGFX, they are in Australia and are highly regulated. You will see their NZDJPY chart sits at a rather respectable 4 pip spread.
Lastly here’s CaesarTrade who are just as bad!
