As much as i try not to believe, Why do i feel my account is either being monitored or trades manipulated?

When i have small capital, my trades go well, when i use same strategy on big funds i end up in loses many times. Buy and sell limit hardly hit but does well on my demo account. Consistent Spike delay when i use big lot size and as soon as i close after a long wait (in loss), big spike hit… This has happened over time.
Sometimes, my data connection is active, while in profit and trying to close, my MT5 is live but candles static, and app is frozen( not reading profits or loss) when i restart, it shows new figure and goes static till losses set it. My friend told me of his experience of differences in chart when he was trading the same pair with another person.

I was told deriv is the best but my experiences so far has not been encouraging at all. PS: am not new to pairs so i know this.

What is going on?
Can someone really help me with better understanding of whats going on?

Fiarness is all am asking for. This is too much. I trade other brokers on my MT5 but this is not the case with them. I do more on deriv so i expect same fairness they offer if not more!

If this continues, I’ll keep evidences for future references

I think I have similar experience here too. Yesterday I was trading boom and crash with my brother using the same lot size, but I was amazed because the candle sticks weren’t moving in the same pattern. What’s wrong???

I recently noticed that some trades I performed had different results on MT5 and the trading platform, is there any explanation for this?

I share your experience this is too much, from the day i use small capital to raise $15 and withdrew it from that day my nightmare begun with deriv. Consistent spike delays, and instant market reversal.

For me i am no more trading any deriv synthetic indice, i will join the world to trade on a better market with broad space of fairness in business.

Bro I thought I was the only one observing those things
This is how my journey went
The first day I traded those synthetic indices
I lose my whole 30$

I don’t give up and continue
I deposited 10$somedays ago
I successful flip the 10$ to 120$ on that day
I was very happy and place withdrawal of 100$
They delayed the withdraw to ltc for 10days+,I blew the remaining 20$(which is because of the manipulation there was even a time I felt like it was I and someone trading at that time , because it keeps hunting for my loss,if I take a trade of a bullish market on any timeframe ,it going to go bearish to hit my sl immediately I place a selll stop to the bearish market,it is going to go bullish hit my order and continue bearish and hit my sl,so I had to cancel the withdrawal order I transfer the 70$ to my trading account to trade again,I don’t even know how it happened,I set some trades which I calculated that am going lose just 10$ to my sl with my lotsize ,just immediately I place it the market hit my order and hit my sl,to my supprise I meet just 13$ in my account left ,I just can’t imagine what happened,so I flip the 13$ to 80$ yesterday,so I place withdrawal of 67$ with another payment method(fiat) which is 51,000+naira In my currency but I was sent 28,300naira (just imagine) and if i wanted to deposit the same amount (67$) I will have to pay 53,000 and for they to send withdrawal they pays 28,300,half of the money,I contact there customer service I was told it was not from there own ends that they processed my payment and it sent,I told them what happened about the rate they said it was not from there platform (just imagine) which platform am I depositing on?,am frustrated thou ,I want to just thank deriv for showing there true colors before I start telling friends to trade with them​:person_facepalming::person_facepalming:
