    How? His broker did.

    DSQ: It went up 20 cents and you didn't exit, meaning that you had already accepted a loss of 20 cents. And once it fell back to break even, why didn't you give yourself a chance with the price of facing 15-20 cents loss for the second time if it goes up one more time.
