  3. Yep, there are several. Sorry about that.
  4. Imagine getting stopped out on those market index ETFs down 59%, and no trade bust. That's gotta hurt. An equivalent loss to the entire 2007-2009 bear market, in about 30 mins.
  5. I was looking at the charts on some of those thinly traded ETFS and thinking to myself that one computer screwed over another computer that was trying to short sell -
  6. The beauty of free markets - for the people who make the rules.
  7. What if you bought some stock at a firesale price, then sold it a few minutes later at a normal market price. They said they are busting the first trade, but what of the second? You would not have made the sale if you weren't able to make the buy in the first place. Do they bust the second trade as well? Or do you find yourself unwillingly short? What of the guy who bought the stock you sold?
  8. yeh, you find yourself unwillingly short. It happened to me.

    Yep. I've gotten screwed that route numerous the ones I bought yesterday dirt cheap during that time, I didn't sell!

    Fvck yeah. Last night I miscalculated...I took 40% not 60% and ones I thought would be cancelled weren't! I bought PEY@4.70, WIN@6.36, and WSII at 5.46. It's a beautiful world today.

    I did have some PEY at a lower price busted, as well as a ton of BDV, but I think I can handle it, lol.
