What possible benefit would there be? First, a 3 or 4 pip spread on top of a volatile 3 or 4 pipe spike is not that unusual. Second, when you have a thousand people trading the same system, you don't want everyone hitting the tape at the same time. There are random exit generators to stagger exits by a second or two. One time you win a little more or less, another time, you win or lose a little less. Not saying they're doing this yet, but if interest keeps rising, they will need to. Thirdly, for those measuring their losses in dollars, is your account funded in USD? If not then you need to look at the costs or benefit of the carry on each trade. If your account funding currency appreciates during the trade, you'll make a little more, or vice versa.
War is when your government tells you who the enemy is. Revolution is when you figure out, for yourself, who the enemy is.
