went short on USD/JPY... price flirted with the 10 pip profit and went up a little,then went down...and then it happened... the more it went down the less profit it showed although I went short !!! 

can anyone tell me what happened ? is this normal behaviour or manipulation ??

I have never seen this before with ANY broker !!!

P.S. : this happened BEFORE markets closed


Yes, I can explain in part what happened. The slippage in a fast moving candle near the opening and closing sessions tend to be far greater than average, plus, you will notice on Sunday's open, that the spreads are about 3 to 4 times the normal spread during the week. I'm not sure the reason why, but I'll bet the banks are overwhelmed with addition orders that are not filled in time as market is moving faster than fulfillment of the orders.
