  1. Thanks James This would really help me out. Especially if it arrived before the ESMA rule change :smileywink:
  2. (apadhani) I absolutely accept losses, the known unknowns. It's the unknown unknowns or black swans that I am trying to mitigate. My experience has taught me that traders come in many different varieties, all with their own methodologies and I recognise that different tools will suit different trading styles. If my proposed alert isn't for you, fair enough but I know it would help me.
  3. (PandaFace) Yes but that would occur later than I need for my peace of mind
  4. (apadhani) Just another line of defence for risk mitigation
  5. A great feature to mitigate the risk of catastrophic loss would be alerts linked to your account equity. Alerts could be triggered by a percentage change in account equity from the previous close or the breach of an absolute monetary amount. This would be a great additional warning to combine with price alerts to give a client more peace of mind. No one wants to see a repeat of the mess surrounding the removal of the peg on EURCHF by the SNB a few years back. I believe ESMA would look favourably on something of this nature Is this something in the pipeline?
