Hi all - I've just spoken to @TimP who is the product owner of MT4 and third party systems, and he has confirmed that this was an error isolated to MT4 which we are investigating. I believe this should have exclusively been on MT4. Please be assured that if this had happened on a live account we would have rolled back the trade and made any cash corrections where necessary.

Just to point out a similar false mega spike has turned up on the CSI300 affecting all live charts 4 hr and over for the 23/03. I'm sure this wasn't present last week when I last looked at the chart.

Thanks for this Casey - we have made the changes in LIVE however DEMO accounts may be a little longer and are likely going to have to wait until the scheduled sweep. 

thanks

    • *parp!*  Ooh what's that smell!  
    • Using Spread bet is not suitable for scalping in my view , you get filled and exit at a poor price and its hard to cover a spread. Depends on what your definition of a 'scalp'  is though   Share dealing is  a lot better for US stocks (no fees) but you need the capital and can only go long. 
    • The point Rayner was making is if you only have a five point target and your win rate is not very high it is probably not a viable strategy.
