    Better off swing-trading with this outfit.

    They are okay otherwise.

    Due diligence would indicate this has always been the case.
    If you want to trade news, trade Futs.
  5. what news ? what time was the 'shutdown' ?
  6. Yesterday, 100+ pip pop was data dump of news from the Fed. Wasn't a scheduled release as far as I know.

    which pairs?

    my charts show the move in EUR/USD happened over several minutes.. wasnt exactly a 10 second spike.

    Why would they stop quoting?
  8. they did it again today, at some point EUR/USD spiked up, OANDA slowed down and then shut down.
    The new platform absolutely sucks , I would say those problems are not at all fortuitous .
  9. And there it goes...........:eek:
  10. Hey, it's back on.
    I don't scalp, I was never very good at it, but the off and on with the platform would preclude any news trading.
