I am still in....stop still far off...also have position on USD/ZAR short on MSM, so working out to be a "perfect hedge" on those longs. I decided to just do some calculations on 42200 where I think you called the exit accurately for that entry.At 42200' the stop would have been at 40 761....for a possible move to about 45000....the risk / reward looks okay if you get the reward, becos a loss would have been about R14390 per contract....now if that loss is too much, then the ALMI better option than STX 40 CFD.

my worry was that I was up 7% on my VIX long, my interpretation was that the downside risk was much higher on the TOPI long

i am rams, yep. from around 3 pm that was the result of the news/decision i gather. prior to that i agree it was good. ive developed a bad 5 min habit which im hoping to only use occasionally, seeing that i prefer 15 min...having said that extremely profitable none the less. you have a hand in all trading areas i see, i seem to understand a little and have a liking for index futures and equity. fx currency etc i find "intimidating".... newbie i guess
