Recently I have been entering shorts on upticks and longs on downticks - and taking quick profit 10 pips at a time.
Ever since I started doing this (didn't used to matter to me too much as I was always entering on bar opens/closes) IG have been slipping my take profits and slowing my execution...
Anyone else experience this?
I use a different charting service than the one IG provides (their "data is indicative") and last night I managed to short the AUD on IG from a price that my charting provider didn't even quote on the Offer chart.
I can only assume these practices have placed me in a "bad bucket" or something - the slippage is within their acceptable stated so I understand it's on me for using them - just wondering on others experiences. Certainly not used to this - stuck with IG through thick and thin because I like fixed spreads and guaranteed execution at the price I click.
EDIT: I did move houses recently - but the internet here is Optus Fibre broadband - fastest in Australia as far as I know.
