    yes you could be right, i thought gomarkets were changing over to 5 digit ECN feed so they could give us the best spreads possible, it looks like they ar not.

    I have never see 3 to 3.5 for eurusd however maybe i am not looking at the right time, if this is the case i will get in contact with them!

    Bobkat Here,
    It's Done Nothing For Me Either.
    I've Noticed In The Morning GO MARKETS Spreads
    Are Over 3-3.5 For EUR/USD.
    Maybe They Jack Up The Spreads To Stop EA'S Scalping?
    It's Not The First Time Brokers Have Done That!

    Anyhow i just contacted gomarketsaus with this spread problem and they have acknowledged that there is a problem now, but not with them. They tell me it is there feed provider which is currentX has the issue and it has only been like this for the last week or two and many other have been complaining, but they can not tell me why.

    Anyhow they tell me they have contacted there feed provider and are demanding answers and they expect this will be fixed at some point, so there you go this is the reason why megadroid is not making trades, i knew it, it goes to show that i was not being paranoid!

    amazing!

    I contacted GoMarkets earlier today and they were unaware of the spread issue, I had to forward my MD trading journal so they could see the "spread exceeded limit" with the times it was occuring. When they got back to me they said no one had brought up the issue but some of their staff had mentioned that their own MD EA's had stopped trading and they would look further into it as anything above 4 was wrong.
    From what you have said it seems like they looked into it and if something gets done, EXCELLENT!!!
    Also I mentioned earlier about their out of ours trade desk being changed, they informed me that their number changed to a direct number but its still the same desk.

    I am not sure why they said they were not aware of the problem or issue they told me something different and they also said that others have been having the same problem as me, eiither way they now know there is an issue one and they better fix it soon .

    Were the prices wrong as well? You'd have thought Currenex would be just supplying the bid and ask prices and GoMarkets's software would work out the spread themselves.

    In MQL you can get the spread a couple of ways: by taking the difference between bid and ask or using the MarketInfo(MODE_SPREAD) function. If MetaQuotes wanted to provide a broker with a feature to play with the spreads without changing the prices they could easily use this function. Maybe being a bit paranoid but we know that the brokers have other options (not neccessarily used by all) to thwart profitable EAs.

    I was thinking about using GoMarkets. Apart from this issue, are these guys good?

    they have been a great broker, this is the only issue i have come accross, however they say it will be fixed so for now i will take them at there word.

    This has only been a 1 or 2 week problem max, prior to that all scalpers have been making consistant profits, all i can do is give them a few more weeks to see if they have worked out the problem.

    Either way i am still happy with them and would recommend then to anyone!

    Hello wannaberich,

    I use MegaDroid and it is very good EA.
    Do you trade only EUR/USD in H1 or even with other pairs and other TF?

    Have others just recently had a bad run with MD. I'm with GoMarkets and didn't have a loss for months but since they have "fixed" the spread issue I have had two very small wins followed by 2 large losses on the one day and another large one today.
