Wrong margin calculation





6/8/11 11:57 BUY 40 @ESU1 1275.38 6/9 10:52 1283.25 Extreme $15,514



His balance didn’t have enough buying power to buy 40 ES contracts.

The ‘#’ column refers to total number of contracts opened since the trade was started. So buy 1, close 1, buy 1, close 1, would show ‘2’ in the # column even though he only had 1 open at a time.



I am not speaking for the system developer though, no relation to him at all, just saying that is how C2 works.

What you said was not the case.

Open his trade details:

6/8/11 11:57 BTO 10 @ESU1 1278.50

6/8/11 12:35 BTO 10 @ESU1 1277.50

6/8/11 13:57 BTO 20 @ESU1 1272.75

6/9/11 10:47 STC 20 @ESU1 1283.00

6/9/11 10:52 STC 20 @ESU1 1283.50



You can see :

He bought 10, bought 10, bought 20, then sold 20,sold 20.
