Spikes? Forex Market timings? News? No stop loss? MARGIN CALL



The Euro / USD had a spike up yesterday.

Many folks received a call from Margin.

MARGIN CALL is a terrible thing to happen. Your ego is gone. It hurts. Worst, your money is gone. Why do spikes happen?

  • An unexpected news / economic result triggering massive orders of the same type
  • Markets opening and closing. Hence traders are getting into or out of their positions
  • “Intervention” from big institutions
  • Unknown reasons

In short, spikes can happen anytime anywhere. If you are on the wrong side of it, good luck!

Yet with this knowledge, many folks trade without stop loss. I was one of them previously. I had seen my profits of 3k go to $100 within an hour. So much for clearing my debts!

A STOP LOSS may save your account.

Trading is never about gambling. Experienced traders will tell you that you need a plan. What price to take profit and what price to stop loss.

Trade carefully. A profit of 100% 200% 300% sounds good. A loss of 100% and that’s the end of the game.
