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?

    • Hi guys, I am wondering if you can help me calm my blood pressure. Just started learning how to trade and left a long position open by mistake today and did not manage to close - GBP/CAD. Is there any way to close it or minimise the risk of losing money. My account is not big at all but I am most worried about losing more and/or going on a negative balance.   Any suggestions?   Best regards!
    • @dmedin, I totally agree.  I want to see the so called experts on IG Community that know it all and have lots of knowledge, intelligence, wisdom and cannot be wrong 'people'  to prove this. They will not as they do not really want to help anyone on IG Community as they are selfish apart from sharing their posts, sharing links, sharing technical and complex information and everything BUT what people on IG Community are looking for. They then get defensive, abusive, rude and really turn the screw so that their real character comes out.  I am a bad trader. I have no knowledge. I have no experience. There you go. I am sure this will satisfy some on the IG Community. So those who do have knowledge, do have experience and think they are superior I would love them to response to @dmedin and demonstrate that they are profitable traders who consistently make profits year upon year and pay a lot of tax to their tax authorities as they obviously do not use the tax efficient advantage of spread betting. 
    • I would love to see anyone prove they were consistently profitable from trading over 12 months.  Such evidence is hard to come by.
