How come I could not see any transaction at those prices when I looked on the brokerís charting interface set for 1 sec? I cannot use those fine settings anymore to show you as itís two far back, but the following day I could still do it and grabbed a screen shot and emailed to them, but they replied with the explanation I mentioned.

Regarding market orders, I have not noticed any problems so far; orders were filled quite decently.

You'd have to ask your broker. I provided you the exact timestamps of all trades.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
