I had that on Monday with them. They wouldn't let me sell part of my S&P position that I had open. It just kept saying the market had moved since I pressed the button. So I had to use a stop about about 5 points below the actual price to get them to close it and then the online platform said phone only after that. That's the problem with the SB companies when it gets volatile, they just won't let you trade, which is why stops and limits are so important with them IMO.

I found sometimes logging out and logging back in again can get the electronic trading back up and running.

Pete takes the honours ( honors) this week by pipping me by 1 point. Give Polly an extra peanut from me m8. The fundamentals are calling the shots imho but it's not so easy to see what is already priced in. Lots of selling on the rumour tho.

Interesting that the averages aren't doing too well in this climate.

Nice one Pete - about time you had a win.

Pat494 started this thread I am ignoring the fundamentals this week - perhaps to my peril - and going to say 1211
