Listen up Bumblebee EA users, I was at my computer when the USG FX platform froze up today for approx 30 mins and the same thing happened yesterday for 7 minutes. Take a look at the USDCAD 1 min candle at 23:58 with your cross hairs, then go to the very next candle the time is 00:32, so thats 34 mins of missing data. I had open trades at both times and still waiting to hear back from them about one USDCAD trade from yesterday. This is a very frustrating thing when it happens, and you are helpless to do anything, and its a very serious thing that can lose you a lot of money in no time.
There is price gaps on the GBPUSD 1 min chart as I am typing this comment, so this is an on going issue that needs to be resolved from there end, and I turned the EA off a few hours ago. Today was not a good day for the USDCHF pair so I deleted that pair completely, as its still to volatile form last weeks events.
There is another huge issue which IMO is the most serious in running this Bumbelbee EA. Today was a perfect example of whats been happening. What I mean is that if you look at Juergans trades today or last week, you will see that there is many, many trades that I didnt get and vice versa. Its just as well today because he took a huge hit and I turned my EA off when I saw the swissy being way to volatile.
I have talked to Alex about this and it seems to be effecting everybody that uses the Bumblebee EA, but its an issue on there servers and not an issue with the Bumblebee servers. I am not just talking about a few missed trades, but huge chunks of time where no trades took place on my computer but tons of trades took place on Juergans account here.
Remember that tomorrow is FOMC day at 14:00 EST time, and it might be a killer day for profits but might also be a big losing day with the issues they are having with there platform freezing up, and trades being all over the map with every trader although its the exact same strategy being used.
