I wondered if it was massive spread widening that can happen especially in more exotic pairs over rollover time...

No, the account was under 10 pips from a stop out on the Friday close... with an already widened spread. It was the 200+ pip gap that killed the account and sent it into negative territory.

ah yes the huge GAP on GBP pairs due to hard brexit fear after PM May speech outlines released before her actual speech to parliament. And of course even if there was a SL a GAP goes through it. Looks like also happened on the Global Prime account, although it managed to survive... https://www.myfxbook.com/members/EURONIS/euroniscom--globalprime/1585919 why I always fear for systems keeping trades opened on the weekend. cheers Kevin.

Yes, the GP account was lower risk, about 30% it seems.

Looks like under summary GBPUSD longs for the FXPig PAMM Euronis also large negative pips, I assume it was also affected by this GAP, but perhaps managed to survive as can't see the same large negative pips on GBPAUD pair, so didn't get a double whammy, of GAPS on both pairs (with very high correlation between those pairs on GBP news). cheers
