No stop ? Back in the 1950s when I went to school that would have been a BM. Which is a beatable mistake. 6 thwacks with the cane on the backside. It really stung !!

Sure did . You can’t have a stop because you are basically trading the difference between the 2 prices.

Sure is:

Nasdaq long @ 6215 = +144 @ £4 = + £576
Dow short @ 43430 = - 25 @ £1 = + £25
Net + £601

Unusually, both long and short in profit.
