I hate to disagree with you fti, but there is absolutely no way that retail forex brokers could operate a margin system of good faith. Can you imagine the losses they might be chasing from customers if they allowed 24 hours for everybody to make good on margin calls? I do see that the combination of high leverage and instant liquidiation provides an easy way for them to take out unwary retail traders but if they were to follow the margin practices of brokers on regulated exchanges, I fear that many of us would not be granted an account in the first...
i not providing solutions.
I just stating fact, operationing conditions.
