Was anyone else unable to trade GBP/USD on exit poll?

Question

Was anyone else unable to trade GBP/USD on exit poll announcement? Platform on mobile and desktop wasn't allowing me to place any trades right on the exit poll announcement at 10pm - subsequently missed the 2% move up!....

For these big highly volatile events you need to use orders placed in the market before the event, all orders are handled on a first come first served basis so market orders (instant buy/sell) will be dealt with last and so suffer the biggest slippage of all if they actually get filled at all. More likely is your market order will be rejected as price has gaped so much by the processing of all the resting orders queued before it.

Retail traders get to fight over leftovers once the big piggies have filled their bellies.

I couldn't trade either, missed the 2 minute rise up :(

Did you miss the two-day crash back down as well?

    • The study/studies are treating the pneumonia. Antibiotics and DMARDS (and moreover statins,  ace inhibitors, metformin as quoted in the study) have no place in treating a virus.
    • 80 patients treated with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, clinical improvement in all but 1 who died, 97% of the 80 were virus negative by day 5. https://www.mediterranee-infection.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/COVID-IHU-2-1.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0mQGCxBJ2Xy7vkI-0gAHQ6leJuFzj-Bvx--SY0WoIBzKgp9cjViKBMsZ4
