Why is there a price difference between exchanges?

  1. Price Source: Trading platforms that use MT4 or MT5 do not create prices themselves. Instead, they obtain prices from Data Feed sources provided by liquidity providers.
  2. Liquidity Providers: There are 9 levels of liquidity providers. These providers obtain prices from banks and major financial institutions before sending them to the clear house.
  3. Open and Closed Markets: Exchanges around the world open and close at different times, which may result in price differences.
  4. Time and Economic Factors: Exchanges may open late on Mondays, and economic factors can influence prices.

    Price differences between different data feed sources are common and widespread in the financial markets, especially in forex.
