Lower Market Liquidity during holiday seasons
While some markets will be closed temporarily due to holidays at the end of the year 2018, you may also want to pay extra cautions to market activity.
During the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, lower than normal market liquidity and thus the higher volatility in market prices are expected.
The market condition could cause higher slippage rate too.
These conditions are normal during holiday seasons, and you are recommended to monitor your accounts and make sure to have enough funds to support your trading positions.
