Incorrect spread on Wall Street DBF?

Guest samuelcfp

Ive just put a long bet on the Wall Street DBF (15th Jan, approx 1824hrs GMT) and noticed that the spread is 5.8 rather than the 1.6 it usually is at this time. Plus, the minimum stop is 12 rather than the normal 6. This has increased the chance of my position being pinged-out and therefore lose 1% of my account.


Is this normal, have the spreads and stops changed suddenly for these trading hours or is this a technical error?

If the latter, and I lose the position when it would have gone in my favour, what can I do to get my funds back?


Thanks in advance,

A bit of research suggests that it is early closing due to Martin Luther King, JR. day. Note to self, put American holidays in the diary. Rookie error!


End of thread.

    • Asian indices took their cue from a poor finish on Wall Street, where bullish momentum faded thanks to declining energy stocks. Poor Chinese trade data hit sentiment in the Asia-Pacific region, as weakness in imports flagged fresh concerns about the Chinese economy. Lower oil and commodity prices hit markets on Wednesday, in part thanks to a revival in the US dollar. Overnight the yen saw fresh safe haven flows, taking USDJPY to its lowest level since mid-September, and hitting the Nikkei 225 hard. US weekly unemployment claims are the main event of the day, with a weaker open expected for most European and US indices.
