Hi all… here’s a newbie question for you (one that hopefully has a reasonable explanation): I’m doing some paper trading on some demo accounts with Alpari UK. During the day spreads are normal and pretty stable, ie. 1 pip for EURUSD, etc. But come 5 pm EST, the spreads go absolutely crazy… like 16 (sixteen) pips for EURUSD, I think I also saw about a 45 (forty-five) pip spread on GBPCHF also! Then after an hour or so, it returns to normal. Has anyone else also experienced this? Is there some explanation? If you’re already in a good profitable position when this rolls around, you’re going to get stopped out right away. I’m just wondering how anyone can have a snowball’s chance in hell of making any money in the Forex market if this is how it is.
