I heard that Oanda honored stops that people had placed. Can anyone verify ? I'm with IB but I was not in a CHF pair. Yesterday may have changed forever the way I think about trading. There is literally nothing a person who just so happened to be on the wrong end of that trade could have done to protect themselves. Even if you had placed a stop and used good money management, your entire account was done. Period. If that stop was not honored Don't even mention anything about excessive leverage being an issue. Even if you had used leverage as low as 4X it would have blown your account.
