Something weird happened today. I trade with Global using PATS standalone system. I finished an e-mini trade and wanted to cancel the unused stop order I had in place from the trade. When I clicked to PULL the order, the order status changed to CP (cancel pending) and it remained an active working order. I clicked a few more times and nothing changed. Now the market was getting closer to where my stop was and I definitely had no intention of being in this trade. So I phoned the firm and was told that other people were having the same problem and they would call RCG (the clearing firm). RCG said it's a GLOBEX problem. I'm surprised nobody blamed it on the Bush administration or the UN for that matter. Finally, they said the problem was the order was never assigned an order number by GLOBEX and was therefore uncancellable. It was just suspended in cyberspace. So I asked them if the order gets triggered and there's a loss, who's responsible? The person I spoke to said he didn't know but implied that it probably wasn't them. In the end, RCG managed to find and cancel the order thru something I never heard of called OASIS. The order would have been triggered a couple of minutes later. Does anyone know who's legally responsible for this? Probably me, right?
