People often don't agree with each other. As long as disagreement is done in a civil manner I don't mind. I am sometimes abrupt and present things as facts when they aren't so I can understand I rub people up the wrong way. My wife has been trying to knock it out of me for years. :)
I think the way that the liquidity providers work is that they prioritise liquidity to the brokers who provide them with the largest client base. So therefore the larger brokers will get the liquidity first during such events. In this case though for a while there was no liquidity, nobody had a clue what the price of the Chf pairs should be - I think this has taken a lot of people by surprise and will take brokers, hedge funds, traders and possibly even liquidity providers out of the market. Haven't seen crazy moves like this in a long time.
