At about 10pm London time on Wednesday, the yen appreciated more than 3 per cent against the dollar in just eight minutes. Assume spread increase over this vol period pushed your positions overboard and you didn't have enough margin.

Either way ... why even bother having equal and opposite positions open at the same time? There is no benefit WHATSOEVER and you're just paying overnight fundings?

Best to call them to find out the real reason.

I sold a 11900 PUT EURJPY for 04JAN19. 

The market closed at 12370 on the 04JAN (the flash crash was on 02JAN19)

The position expired on the 04JAN at a £-180 loss ??

The same happened in 3 other JPY related positions.

 

How is this possible?

3.3 to 184 is a difference of 180.7

Assume you think you should have made the 3.3 points?

demo account or real life account? Did you speak to them?

    • The bulls are coming back: APAC brief 21 Jan
      The bulls are coming back: Traders received the greenlight to jump into risk assets on Friday. It culminated in a substantial jump across global equities and a certain “risk-on” attitude to trading. The impetus was arguably more technical than fundamental. The boost in sentiment in being attributed mostly the leaked news that Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin was planning to lift US tariffs on China. Whatever the motive, nefarious or simply untrue, that story was quickly denied by the White House. However, it signalled enough to the market that progress was being made in trade war negotiations. That extra fuel to this recovery’s fire supported a push above very significant technical levels in Wall Street indices, attracting buyers and further validating the view that the December sell-off is behind us.

      The stock market’s biggest fan: There’s one market participant who is apparently willing that notion to be true: US President Donald Trump. The US President obviously uses the stock market’s performance as a measure of his success – rightly or wrongly. And over the weekend, amidst the very many Tweets that were Tweeted by Trump, this one outlined his view on the US economy and stock market: “the Economy is one of the best in our history, with unemployment at a 50 year low, and the Stock Market ready to again break a record (set by us many times)…” Quite a pledge to make – and one markets participants aren’t going to take too seriously. Regardless, it does provide a perversely comforting story for markets, to know that the US President is wishing this market higher.
