Did anyone get cleaned out in the slide?

  1. I noticed in the IB pricing history of some ES, SPX puts that large spikes (4 to 5 times the put value) occurred regularly. Can this induce a margin call and wipe out an account, even if the spikes were erroneous? Has this or anything similar happened to you?
    many thx
