Questions about stops and last week's meltdown

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by brosnahan, May 9, 2010.

  1. Was anyone trading ES or NQ last week and got caught on the wrong side of the spike on Thursday?

    Did your stop markets get you out with some slippage or did the market action blow right through them, resulting in a heavy loss. Here I am thinking I'd be safe from this by sitting out on FOMC days and during premarket hours. I wasn't trading that day thankfully. How'd everyone make out?

    some traders actually made money.

    besides anyone losing money wouldn't post their losses here.

    you get no sympathy from posting here and no sympathy from your broker or exchange. that the way it goes in the crime racket. anyone who lost money that day got robbed IMO

  3. Anything people have heard relating to this is fine, anecdotes and the like. I don't expect people to post their losses. I refuse to pay CME for time and sales, that's all.
