    What if your account got liquidated due one of the busted trades and their auto-liquidation lead to more losses(due illiquidity), how IB will make up for the client?

    If you take this to arbitration (by fellow brokers) IB will likely claim that they had to liquidate the position in order to protect other clients and that you shouldn't take so much leverage that one busted trade puts you over the margin limit.
  4. I've said it before.

    Trading is dangerous.

    99% of you trade like it isn't.

    You're mistaken.
