Silver dropped nearly 200 points.


Recommended Posts

Hi   just some background info in case you missed it (search the thread 'Silver') I posted (with charts) the silver drop on Friday, the 1  minute spike down to 1437 and instant recovery. There was obviously a lot of head scratching amongst all the brokers. CME cancelled all orders early morning below1554, IG changed their charts about 11 am to put in a floor at 1555 (instead of the 1437 as per the chart pics in the post). I suspect you have some negotiational leverage should you contact the dealing desk.

I lost about A$80,000 in one time, I have lost all my fund to go further, decided to leave.

BTW, I complained with the margin call that was too late activated on my account, they had unaccepted explanation for me. i felt so unfair but don't know what to do.

Hi    Sorry to hear that, must be absolutely devastating. The curious thing with these so called fat finger events is the one minute drop followed instantly by a one minute recovery, one would presume someone correcting the bad order by putting in a reverse order but then price returned down to retest that low during this week.

I know it was very sudden and across all the brokers not just IG. You see on the one minute chart I posted  in the thread 'Silver' (before the low was corrected) that the bar was probably nearly all slippage, as in the bar was instantly stamped rather than a majestic decline, literally jumping over all stops rather than running through them.

 

This is becoming an increasingly regular event and a concern for all, hopefully someone can offer some advice on how you might move forward.

 

Best of luck.

Hi , sorry to hear you were affected by the silver flash crash recently.  I know this was a significant surprise for a number of our clients - and of course across the industry - and we have done our best to amend the low levels as per the subsequent CME corrections, so you should have seen corrections to your ledger.

 

If you'd like us to take another look at your account, or discuss it again at all, please do get in touch with the helpdesk by phone, email or live chat, and we'd be more than happy to help.

 

I appreciate that this resulted in large losses for some clients, but we do need to ensure we apply our margin policy in the same way across all clients with the same account type.  If your account balance reaches a certain level, positions are closed in order to prevent further losses being incurred.  The logic behind this is should the market affected keep dropping and we do nothing, clients could end up with huge losses running on their account.

 

Please do get in touch if we can help any further.

 

Many thanks,

Hannah

    • shocking!!!!!!!!   but not surprised as I was always afraid about stuff getting on to those face masks   
    • 👀  Very interesting article by ZeroHedge on the recent big main stream narrative flip (China lab leak); Why The Davos Elites Just Played The 'Jon Stewart' Card | ZeroHedge ''Now Stewart comes out at this moment to pull his schtick on Colbert’s show to rally the libs to the whole WuFlu, “China Did It To Us” Narrative The Davos Crowd is pushing on us now?  '' ''They’ve pulled out the Jon Stewart card to convince the squishy Millennials that China is our enemy.  Google will now whitewash all references to Ft. Detrick, their October 2019 exercises and all the rest of it.  Remember, Millennials, in general, don’t know anything.  They just Google **** and think they’re informed.''   Here is the comedy show segment (8 min) the article centres on, watch it first.    
    • Sky reports on a new 'outbreak of covid' found during the mass testing of asymptomatic kids. No rise in 111 calls, or hospital admissions, or deaths. So just another outbreak of faux 'cases' then. This is why the mass testing of asymptomatics is a waste of time and nearly every other country is stopping it. The UK keep it up because it's useful to coerce people into taking the jab. They already stopped it for adults, they've been jabbed. There is only a few hours between getting infected and developing symptoms, very few would actually be tested then. Once you have symptoms you are not allowed in a testing station or at school. So most of those 'cases' are false positives, or bad lab work (even the BBC admits that is happening), or most likely people with immunity who have come into contact with the virus up to a month previously and old fragments from the destroyed virus are left in the blood. This virus has been circulation for over 18 months, there can't be many who have not already come into contact with it. But but but variants!!!!!!!! There are already many research papers out that show that immunity works on the variants. Only govt science experts and model makers pretend otherwise.   Meanwhile, continuing studies (if you've been jabbed you're in it) are showing the vaccines to be increasingly unsafe while more and more studies show Ivermectin is safe, cheap and effective against covid and can also be taken prophylactically.   Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infection A Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Trial Sequential Analysis to Inform Clinical Guidelines' Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infectio... : American Journal of Therapeutics (lww.com)
