Hi   You don't mention when or which market or the spread which would be interesting. Presumably it was tied up with the sudden and massive increase in volatility on the exit polls of the GB election. GBPUSD saw a gap (slippage) of 100 pip between 22:00 and 22:01 (one minute) which would have caused a lot of stop level and spread level resetting on the IG algos.

But all else being equal (putting aside the trade issue) and given the overall good state of the US economy all the main indices should be drifting up out of this period of consolidation. But the big levels always matter and any breach takes some effort to undo and a drop below 12544 puts us back into a prior range whose bottom is indeed around 11800."
