A novice, trading with profit on demo only made this HUGE mistake


Dasanudasar32

Question

I was daft enough to think I could short on twitter overnight, Sunday 6th Nov to Monday 7th Nov.. Thinking the de-listing was happening on Tuesday 8th.

My (demo) cash is still tied up in the deal, which did not go through. The price seems to have jumped below my expectations and therefore did not complete. I am not unfamiliar with this issue. 

However, I cannot delete the order. It seems stuck, waiting for completion. And now twitter are delisting from tomorrow, I am stuck in a quandary. My (demo) capital is tied up and I sincerely hope this mess has not happened to anyone investing their hard earned money on a similar but 'real' deal. See screenshot. Please be kind.... More than just a rookie error I am sure :D

Hi @Dasanudasar32

We won't be able to delete the order but we can reset the demo account to 10,000 GBP with no working orders or open positions. If you are comfortable with this option, we will proceed with resetting your demo account. All the best, OfentseIG

    • I am already staking my eth on the platform and currently holding BGB to explore their PoolX event that has a similar high APR.
    • Risk averse ways of earning always seem like good opportunities to earn some good bucks in the Crypto Space.  Certain platforms have taken it upon themselves to bring up worthwhile ways of giving users latitude to earn.  Bitget in its usual manner have brought forth an event to let users earn just by staking ETH. The APR is really Juicy, It is about 20%.  The event is exclusively for African new sign-ups. It seems like one to participate in for the newbies. Participating is relatively simple, you just need to navigate to platform's earn product and choose the corresponding product to stake and earn passively without necessarily risking anything.
