Dear ***,

Thank you for your email.

There was a brief interruption in our Oil feed from approximately 15:29 - 15:35. During this time there was a 4 pip movement in the market, so no orders were negatively affected.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We are in communication with our liquidity providers to get this issue sorted out as soon as possible.

Please let us know if you have any further inquiries.

Warm regards,

There were more problems but I guess it is all related.

I should have made the money but got greedy in the beginning. shorted oil on my first trade when it broke under 85.00 and had up to 40 pips and did not take even partial thinking it is going to drop. it hit my BE stop and then, I kind of started making other mistakes.
Lost focus and it was one of the days when my self control was not good.
Day was very choppy obviously. I noticed that candles became very large on average even by comparison to those days when oil averaged 500 pips per day. 15 min candle used to be 20-30 pips. now it is 50-120 pips.

+0.35% today.
I regained control over myslelf and was very patient, failed to pull trigger to short failure to break mid point but after PP held I went long and picked 20 pips while it went more it is not the kind of market where I let profit run.It is what caused my losses yesterday.
I am not going to rush to trade 2.2% back, will do it gradually and slowly with patience.
