Yes, you can play political games on a cent account. 😉
I bet if it was really a 30,000 account that you would have closed the positions before market close.
If one is trading, manual or with an EA, one has always to keep an eye on the fundamentals as well and act accordingly.
That's also why I built in the settings 'No More Trades After Friday 17:00 UTC' and 'Close Trades on Friday 20:45 UTC', just to make sure.
