I'm a newbie to trading and was wondering if somebody could explain this to me..
I took a GBP/EUR buy trade on Friday, one that I wanted to leave to run all day as I thought it would be on the up. I set my stop loss and went out for the day.
Unfortunately I got delayed and when I got back the market had closed and I couldnt do anything with my trade. It showed I was in nice profit though so wasnt too concerned.
When I've logged in today the position had been closed out at my stop loss at 9pm last night !
So would this be the opening time in asia ?
There seemed to be a big slip in price, are these common when markets open and close - I wont be doing it again either way !!!!
