as title says- i found out that the HKFE closed for a typhoon AFTER it was already closed! got an alert from IB @ 11.47 PST that the HKFE was closing for the typhoon @ 11.45 PST! i called IB in HK to see wtf and when they were notified- they claim they were notified AFTER the market was already shut down. anyone have any insight into this? IB is HORRIBLE about deciminating info, so i question what they say. hard to imagine that the exchange gives zero notification whatsoever (IB's claim) that they're shutting down the market if, as IB claim, there was no notification- then it's tough shit. if, instead, IB knew and didn't get around to notifying traders, then it's a big problem. for me it's definitely a big problem, as i now have a position hanging in the wind over the weekend. now i have to try to figure out how to hedge the HHI tomorrow somehow- or maybe try to figure out a hedge tonight using the Taiwan futures. urgh... by pure luck i closed 1/2 the position just a minute 43 before it closed, or i'd really be screwed.
