I've moved, don't harass those poor people.

I have no control over matters related to the book.

IBFX, it was a margin call. New fan dangled margin rules. I went a bit heavy this morning. To heavy. Unlce Sam stepped in to protect me against myself.

Of course if they just left it I'd be up a few extra percent.

Don't quite know how they margin call an account that's up 37% and end up on 30%...not like I was losing my account. Douche bags. Spoiled my DD...

On O similar trade sizes gives my margin call at 25% of the account, so I need to lose 75% of my account before a margin call, these guys took it on 10%....

And all it was, is trade sizes, using to much margin without a corresponding loss. So that 50:1 is meaningless, I don't have access to it.

this is so typical.

you margin called and all of a sudden ibfx is a douchebag.

i get it now.

here is an idea for your next book:

exploring margin calls: through the eyes of a monkey brained diver.

hey, here is an idea...

make your trades public and then maybe we can eggsplain it to your greatness.

btw, ibfx is a very very nice company to trade thru and you are a moron.

officially, you margin called.

you did not understand the margin call rules.

they are really quite simple.

if(equity<=marginused) ...

but i completely understand why you would want to blame all of this on ibfx.

obviously, they are douchebags and you are not.

i really like your line about uncle sam stepping in to protect me.

that is so so amateurish.

Speki,

This is pretty much random stuff hey.

It's sole purpose was to show our self appointed trading god that he isn't so much of a god. More like a kid on a tricycle telling Lance Armstrong he is a champion.


i find it interesting that you have ranted on and on about your being published and all...

and i find one book for which you are the author.

a single book that is promoted on several blogs..

yet not one single person has ever come back and submitted even the smallest tidbit of a comment about your book.

what gives?

Why would I need to understand margin calls? Coded portfolio's aren't allowed close to them. Stop them out wayyyyyyy before there is any chance of a margin call.

Last one I had was a few years ago, don't pay much attention to them I'm afraid.

As for the book, I didn't mention it once here, all you. Everyone is a critic. Got used to that years ago....now as this is an fx forum and not a book circle try keep to the relevant subject.

All I'll say about that is that being published was a particularly nice milestone in my life. That's all you need to know.

This is what a margin call looks like: https://www.myfxbook.com/community/trading-systems/expert-advisor-secureprofit/87964,4

Whatever ibfx did wasn't that. I can only presume they changed the methodology due to the new margin rules, which we have compliments of the US government. I'd have expected to be margin called on $67 or so on $135, not $125 or whatever it was.

Doesn't really matter. Just drop the trade sizes a bit, no biggy...I was quite happy to risk the $30 I made so far, irritates me that I wasn't allowed to.

why not make the trades public for this tiny account in order that we can take a look to see why you mc'd?

also, i'd like to comment about the bruce margolese battle just for a moment...

a long time ago, in the oanda forum, he suggested that i google him...

i did exactly that.

and i found blogs that stated that he was not a very nice man.

and so i futzed with him as hard as i could.

and the man stood up and did not buckle.

his trades are working just fine.

now, why must you and that wsd character constantly harass him?

i tell you that i have nothing but good thoughts about mr margolese.

i sincerely wish him well.

i am proud that he calls me a friend.

in closing, i would like to hear more about your book.

here is a suggestion for you...

isnt it possible to put portions or selected chapters up online at books.google.com?

btw, we expect to see continued trading from you in this account.

good day sir.

i was reading today about how the jewish people were treated in the death camps in nazi germany.

it was quite harsh.

one lady, apparently she was quite a finnicky eater prior to entering said death camp.

apparently, she did not even like to eat at certain restaurants or even at many of her friend's homes
because she did not know how the food was prepared.

but in the death camp, the nazis would leave their food sitting out in the hot sun for long periods before

serving them and in one meal there were actually worms in her soup.

she was so hungry that she ate it, worms and all.

may i suggest that in these times of what we might call peace that you find it in yourself to show mr margolese

just a tad of respect and allow him to conduct his business in peace?

regards,

edward.
