people need to realise that trading is not a game and certainly not for the fainthearted and risk extends to every part of the process .......including the broker .....and naturally market risk
ive lost thousands in the past on various ventures and other businesses ..........about £70,000 is my record when a property deal went sour after the market crash in 2008/9..........had to offload something as I was squeezed on liquidity .....(when I knew actually I should have been buying even more property instead - sob )
pick yourself up and come back ...................I guarantee you will be more diligent in every deal you do from now on .....we learn little from success but everything from failure...........so you've learnt a lot ..........whilst I appreciate you must do everything in your power to recover funds.............I would also recommend you let go of anger towards all the supposed perpetrators as quickly as possible as it is of no use to you at all.........and delays your return to other profitable enterprises
If I understood correctly, this is incredible. You were short so you'd made the right call. The platform showed you had made a significant profit, but then the broker reviewed all the fills and your profit turned into a loss...
Some traders who were long made huge losses and, unfortunate though it is, I can understand the brokers going after them... But in your case you were on the right side of the market. It will be interesting to see what the Danish regulator makes of this. Good luck and please keep us updated.
i was cruising Big Mikes Forum last night looking for a piece of , er , information. i came across a thread from some poo guy who has recently had his FXCM ( PLEASE NOTE JASON ROGERS AND FILL US IN ON WHAT HAPPENED)
Aaccount closed. most worryingly was the last post of the thread by Big Mike himself which seemed to label the thread starter as a vendor?!? it was confusing, but what was clear was the lack of posts after. Im so intrigued i must ask Jason to comment. I think the thrust of the matter was the suspendee was getting profitable. i will find it and post the link
That's forex for you - you are dealing with a dealer and not a broker.
The dealer takes the other side of your trades, a broker pushes your trades to an exchange.
The dealer doesn't want to lose money. They want you to lose money. A broker wants you to survive and place more trades to generate more commissions.
The orders were never 'executed' - so asking them when they were executed is like asking for the exact time Captain Ahab speared the whale. It's a fictitious market.
I think that in this case, Saxo should not have hit you with a loss. I can understand them wiping your profits but to use this opportunity to remove money from your account is poor form.
It seems they are happy to wipe out the profits from that day but are aggressively chasing the losses.
I hope the OP gets some restitution. This is not really about trading being an uncertain game but that FOREX accounts are just really SIM accounts where no orders go to a real market and the dealer, the person you trust with your money, removes money from your account based on your SIM losses.
