I used to mess about with IG's 20min binaries, looking to risk below 10 points if there was a chance price would bounce off S/R in my favour. With 1 min left price was 97-100 and the DOW was +20 odd and approaching a large round number. I really liked the look of the setup (and was feeling overly confident) so was preparing to risk £150 and go £50/point. The split second before I clicked sell the binary stopped trading (think they used to stop trading each individual binary 30 sec before it officially closed).

Needless to say in the last 30 secs the DOW dropped and price closed at 0. Split second sooner and I would have been +£4850 for the day (I was 18 at the time).
damn lol what size was your account ?

Making nearly 2200pt YM/Dow in a day when the markets were yo-yoing up and down last year was a highlight. Leaving a Nikkei position overnight in the early days of spreadbetting and finding it had gapped about 500pt the wrong way was the lowlight.

Thursday I stupidly placed 3 trades on a down day forgetting that unemployment rate was coming out on Friday and I even managed to go on margin with one of the trades accidently. Next day, I'm up 10% and I close out my positions which were down 10% the day before. 9.4, I love that number.
