    Why kick anyone out? Why can't we just enjoy the spectacle of someone completely blowing an account? Besides, it would be educational for noobs.

    Haven't tried binaries for years, but whatever the strat it must be a worry that you're trading a market entirely created by the bookie, who can apparently reject any trade they don't like, either instantly or in retrospect if by some miracle they make a fat loss.

    Knowing exactly how much you stand to win or lose is an advantage, but in all other ways aren't you just completely at the mercy of the bookie?

    TBH, I've never understood the point of binaries from the punter's side of the fence. Isn't it effectively the same thing as an underlying index but with a larger spread?

    The thing I don't like about SB providers is the way that they still take any opportunity to grab extra pennies from punters by having T&Cs allowing them to move the goalposts, even though they would still make huge profits just by relying on the clients to lose money because the odds are...

    It would be interesting to know if any client has ever had losses returned due to a T&C clause.

    I find that remark deeply offensive. Most of us are proud to be complete t**ts. R. Charnock (Mrs)

    Why would all the bucketshops share data, and what sort of data are you meaning? I think most SB-ers will probably try most of the providers eventually, to find one they like rather than being anything to do with pro or non-pro.

    If that's supposed to make us feel sorry for SBs, it didn't work.

    No, there's a definite aroma of rat and fish around here.
