Hi After 8 months of my first trade I can say that this game is not easy. hahaha. But I like it, sure as most of you. During this months I had experimented a lot of trading issues , fat fingers, beginer mistakes, autoliquidations, and so on. This week I had a couple more problems. My account has been designated as a Pattern Day trader and I have to wait 5 days to be able to open new positions. I didn't know that this exist. I opened an iron condr but with the wrong expiration and i closed it. This led to the restriction. And to make the things more interestings I had a margin call. In order to resolve the situation I usually open new positions, but i coudn't because of the restriction. So I decided to close existing positions. My Broker only gives 10 minutes to resolve a margin violation. I entered 2 combo orders selling stock and buying calls. Mid price. The orders stayed purple color for 2 minutes. Then one of the orders executed but the other becomes light blue. I lowed the price to almost the bid, but the order stayed lihgt blue for minutes. https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/software/iTWS/iTWS/quickStart/Order_Status_Colors.htm Then the autoliquidation started. I had never seen an order behave like this. The Broker's costumer service explanations were not satisfactory. Another thing to learn about.
