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?

    • Bitcoin at 1:30 pm UK time is still holding up above $9k level which is good so far. It may not last and by tomorrow morning could be back below $9k or shooting up to $10k such is the unpredictability and volatility in Bitcoin. 
    • I wanted to just share the 'Monthly' Silver chart. I shall let you all draw your own conclusions and make your own predictions / assumptions.  Now have a look at the 'Weekly' chart below: For me one could argue that all the downside is played into Silver and any sight of significant bad new could lead to immense upside. It would be a 'Contrarian' type investment / trade but it would also be a 'buy and hope' investment and style. There is nothing wrong with that as long as one accepts that is what it may be. Right now time for some serious 'Flooding'. Apologies if you do not get a chance to this this post or my previous post on this thread due to severe 'Flooding'. The weather is bad in the UK. 😂
