  1. ive been on the right side of a leverage trade that gapped in my direction overnight/ weekend:D

    i know its possible, but does anyone have any stories about a gap that wiped traders out and then some?
  2. WWI outbreak. 4 month market close (fucking pussies) then the Dow Jones gapped down 25%. This was back in the day of 10% margin requirements for stocks :D
