Two of my positions were stopped out earlier. I had placed these stops out of harms way so I was rather surprised. Normally I would just chalked it up to the usual market fun and games and accepted the loss, however on checking the underlying market from a different source, I noticed that the market had not actually gone anywhere near where the Finspreads quote had gone. I checked another source which confirmed that I should not have been stopped out. Of course I got on the phone and they had no explanation and put me back in. I'm beggining to wonder how many times they have done this to me in the past. I am going to have to check every stopout against the market from now on. To add insult to injury, their charts have been down a lot lately and get this, after 5.30pm GMT they think it's completely acceptable to triple their spread on the FTSE rolling contract! They sound exactly like the 'bucket shop' scam described in Reminiscences of a Stock Operator about the life of Jesse Livermore.
