A broker is a match between buyer and seller. They are related to market (Big boys = big Banks). They are offering very expensive in as bid and ask price to a broker currently. Suggest me, do not transaction the gold right now. Dangerous for trade now. My broker is offering high spread too for bid and ask in price.

Right I am not trading..it seems very fishy the gold market. I do have a spread check on my EA.

Okey got some kind of answer from my broker. Its the virus..


The email I got is like this



Markets are currently going through difficult times due to the coronavirus pandemic and the global response to it.

Across trading platforms and asset classes, the effects may be:
– spreads growing to a multiple of what we're all used to (like at this very moment),
– volatility may exceed familiar levels,
– market trends may be even harder to predict than usual.

If you're currently trading, please exercise extreme caution and make sure to keep track of your available margin and account balance to avoid margin calls.

Spreads are larger in general, these last few weeks, due to the coronanirus market turmoil.
