FX binaries = Their market , their prices ...
Yeah fair enough, I never complained about their prices; I'm trading at their prices.

But surely you can see that there is a problem when they close all your positions without telling you?

That's pretty sad and yet quite revealing, that you felt like you had to come back 3 days later and try to pick a fight. Have I struck a nerve? Have I been living rent-free in your head? Are you having trouble sleeping at night? Ironically, you just proved my quote about envy getting in the way of peace of mind. You need to sit down and try to figure out why you think that some random person on the internet losing money would make you feel better about yourself.

I didn't want to ruin your fantasy, but now that you ask, I'd have to say that given that I place hundreds of trades a week on multiple instruments, each of which risks only a tiny percentage of my account, the chances of me blowing my account are smaller than you winning the lottery while getting struck by lightning.

I'm quite certain from your behaviour that you're the type of person who also makes revenge-trades in the market, and doesn't know when to cut his losses and give up.

Thanks for your commendation peakoil

Although it can't be THAT unusual to quintuple your account. If you bet all your money on 3 successive 50/50 bets, you have a 1 in 8 chance of winning all 3 of them which would octuple your account. I'm sure plenty of people are crazy enough to have done that.

I didn't do any dirty tricks. To be honest a lot of it was due to getting lucky as for example I sold a lot of faraway options on the DOW which has been mostly flat for the last 6 months. A few times I nearly wiped out half my account. (I am aware that I have to change my strategy as this can't go on forever.)

Also the latency isn't intentional, it's because I have a boring job in the middle of nowhere and I put trades in through my mobile phone which gets terrible reception here so sometimes it's just slow or doesn't connect at all. In the long run I don't benefit from the latency, as I generally lose money because of it more often than not.

When you say that SB companies have closed accounts, when they close your account do they come up with an excuse to keep your money or do they let you withdraw?

EDIT: By the way, yes, I agree with you, overall it's been very smooth with IG . Even now, the dealer intervention doesn't happen all the time and it's only a few seconds when it does.. I'm just trying to find out what's going on.

Like I said, I needed to change my strategy, and I did. It's much more versatile and the risk is managed.

You need to work on your issues mate, it's not healthy to obsess over another person this much.

I'm just curious mate, as I recently bought a new car in cash from my trading winnings and it reminded me of this post... did you ever get that car?

No hate, just legitimately hoping we've both progressed in the last 4 years.
