A sell stop should be filled at the first bid and your complaint should be that all sells within an 11 minute period were filled at the same price. However I doubt you will be an exception.

If anyone hears of rumors of any broker in trouble plase post it.

Otherwise the vultures are out. I got an email from a broker offering a matching 100% bonus to make up for loss in the CHF. No mention of the terms and conditions other than there are some. Read the fine print.

Honestly with this type of thing it is all in the Fine Print -- if you made a lot of money and they took it from you - then your going to have to go Legal.

The problem you have is it was a s/l entry order - so this is not black/white resolution.

Some brokers went bankrupt yesterday like Excel Markets and probably a few more will today as well when everything it tallied up and seeing if they can collect from the customers at all.

EURCHF
Entry: Target: Stop:

Let me share you a short story...
I placed a few sell stop orders just around the 1.2000 level on EUR/CHF a few months ago.
Orders were filled exactly at given level today, but a few hours later, got an email from S4xo support, that execution prices may be revisited...
During the day, I contacted the support, tried to ask them for some help and information, about my position, is it “real”/well priced/ etc... they couldn’t say anything concrete.

Now I got the following message from them :

“For executed fills that occurred between the times of 09:30:00 GMT to 09:41:30, a EURCHF price of 0.9625 will be applied
For executed fills that occurred between the times of 09:41:30 GMT to 10:01:00, a EURCHF price of 0.88 will be applied “

Seems like a bad joke for me. 0.9625 was touched more than 5 minutes later than the peg broke.
My orders were several months old and placed almost at 1.2000.
During the whole day, I couldn’t get any information from them.
...and it’s S4xobank!?!

I think this behaviour is not acceptable. What do you think about it?
Is it worth to make some complaints or to seek legal advice?

USD is not being sold across the board simply because of the outlook for the ECB meeting next week. Get that over with and the USD index is likely to take a further hit. EUR/USD bottom? Maybe we have to wait for the ECB. If they go all namby pamby on us and postpone QE and all that..... then they could keep the game going for a while longer. But I wouldn't bet on it. :-)

Having been through similar situations like this over the years. We will have to wait and see if some HF, Bank, or other institution was seriously impacted by this massive forex move today. The CHF has widely been used as a funding currency for all kinds of trades so there is a possibility that someone might have been caught short on this decision. If there is a major problem out there we should know something by Monday (U.S. holiday).

I learned a long time ago not to count on central banks to bail out your position and anyone watching the carnage following the Swiss National Bank’s decision to abandon its support of the EURCHF 1.20 peg should use it as a lesson as well. A central bank being forced out of the market after failed interventions is not new but this one took a lot longer than usual and the decision came as a shock to a complacent market. I wrote an article in July 2009 after the Swiss National Bank intervened in EURCHF and I am reposting it as it is as relevant today as a good primer on central bank interventions

Markets are pricing in additional ECB stimulus to the EZ and share markets are reacting accordingly. I don't see a stronger CHF vs. the EUR as providing a major stimulus to the EZ.

There is no doubt that the SNB move intensifies the pressure on the ECB next week to take strong action. A half-hearted policy easing will be greeted negatively.

IMF chief says global economy faces "strong headwind" in 2015

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The world economy faces "a very strong headwind" despite tumbling oil prices and faster growth in the United States, according to the head of the International Monetary Fund. Christine Lagarde, manager director of the IMF, said too many countries still suffer from low growth, high unemployment and excesive debt. In a speech in Washington, Lagarde urged central banks to pursue easy-money policies and said governments should adopt fiscal meaures or reforms that boost growth and job creation, such as public-works projects. She also said falling oil prices offer an opportunity to raise energy taxes, cut subsidies for energy companies and transfer the savings to the less well off. "2015 must be the year of action," Lagarde said.

Swiss National Bank discontinues minimum exchange rate and
lowers interest rate to –0.75%. Target range moved further into negative territory

The Swiss National Bank (SNB) is discontinuing the minimum exchange rate of CHF 1.20 per euro. At the same time, it is lowering the interest rate on sight deposit account balances
that exceed a given exemption threshold by 0.5 percentage points, to −0.75%. It is moving the target range for the three-month Libor further into negative territory, to between –1.25% and −0.25%, from the current range of between −0.75% and 0.25%.

The minimum exchange rate was introduced during a period of exceptional overvaluation of the Swiss franc and an extremely high level of uncertainty on the financial markets. This exceptional and temporary measure protected the Swiss economy from serious harm. While the Swiss franc is still high, the overvaluation has decreased as a whole since the introduction of the minimum exchange rate. The economy was able to take advantage of this phase to adjust to the new situation.

Recently, divergences between the monetary policies of the major currency areas have increased significantly – a trend that is likely to become even more pronounced. The euro has
depreciated considerably against the US dollar and this, in turn, has caused the Swiss franc to weaken against the US dollar. In these circumstances, the SNB concluded that enforcing and maintaining the minimum exchange rate for the Swiss franc against the euro is no longer justified.

The SNB is lowering interest rates significantly to ensure that the discontinuation of the minimum exchange rate does not lead to an inappropriate tightening of monetary conditions. The SNB will continue to take account of the exchange rate situation in formulating its monetary policy in future. If necessary, it will therefore remain active in the foreign exchange market to influence monetary conditions.

I spoke with a non dealing desk broker who shows the EURCHF low at 1.0235.

I asked how can that be the low when it traded at significantly lower levels in the bank market?

He told me that there was no bank liquidity as banks stopped quoting below that level. Since it has no dealing desk it could not quote since banks stopped quoting. It is now quoting and spread is less than a pip but jumpy 50 5 pips.

15 January-- 11:00 GMT- Current Market Conditions
. Markets have been blindsided by the SNB decision to abandon the ill-conceived EURCHF 1.20 floor and announce a cut in its target rate to -0.75%.  Many markets are now in disarray as other central banks try to pick up the pieces.  Markets generally are in a  RISK OFF posture. Equities largely are weaker and interest rates mostly are lower. This is an indication that the ECB is likely to announce additional ease next Thursday.

It will take the better part of a day to clean up this mess. I'm not sure what the SNB wanted to accomplish?

Of course having been around for longer than I am ready to admit, the 1.20 floor shocked me when it was imposed. I knew at some point it would end this way, not because I am smart, but just because I've seen it all before first hand. Do they have history books at the SNB?

QE would achieve what exactly?
Bond yields are at record lows already.
The Euro has devalued and is at nine year lows.
Europe is running a record current account and trade surplus.

I am of the opinion that austerity in Europe is a means to ensure that capital flows into the United States. Think the Asian crisis of the 1990s. This time it's not working so well. But with no capital coming out of China or Japan.... Europe is the best next alternative source of capital for the United States. Europe crushes domestic demand in order to run a current account surplus (which is matched by definition with a capital outflow).

Paris ib 08:37 GMT January 15, 2015
More War

"France is sending a nuclear aircraft carrier to the Middle East in the wake of a terror wave in Paris, which “justifies” the move, according to President Francois Hollande."

Remember the third suspect they named in the Charlie Hebdo case? Well turns out he is 18 years old, was in school at the time of the attack and when he heard his name mentioned in the press immediately turned himself into the Police who later released him because of his obvious non-involvement. No other 'third' suspect has been named and the matter has more or less been dropped in the press. No man-hunt, no alerts... just lots of marches with politicians and lots of flyers printed. A general media circus. The policeman in charge of Charlie Hebdo investigation shot himself and died. No matter, the plebs have been prepped. There will be no resistance. There will even be cheering in some quarters.

The 'West' is gearing up for another attack on Syria and this time there does not appear to be a Russian war ship off the coast of Syria. Is this why Hollande dropped in on Putin recently? Is this why the attack dogs have been called off and Hollande is talking removing sanctions on Russia?

More war on the cards....

We will all be poorer but the military industrial complex will get more money and more power.

The jobs report beat all expectations, damping talk that there is an urgent need to lower Australian interest rates in coming months.

Australia's jobless rate fell to 6.1% in December from a downwardly-revised 6.2% in November. Economists had been expecting the unemployment rate to remain steady at the 6.3% 12-year-high level originally reported for November.

The unemployment rate fell in every state except Western Australia, where it jumped to 6.0% in December from 5.3% in November, likely reflecting the ongoing downturn in mining investment as a decadelong resources boom cools.

The number of people employed across the country rose by 37,400, compared with an expected 5,000 increase, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said.

The number of people in full-time work climbed by 41,600 in December, while those in part-time work fell by 4,100.

At 0550 GMT, the Australian dollar was changing hands at US$0.8208, up from US$0.8094 late Wednesday.

The copper price, the source of a lot of angst for the Australian dollar on Wednesday, was also supportive, rising by 1.4% in Asia.

Earlier, the ANZ Bank had whipped up talk of a cut in interest rates, by changing its forecasts from the likelihood that the central bank will keep rates steady in 2015, to calling for two more cuts.

"The labor market remains soft despite some evidence of rising hiring intentions. Ongoing job losses in some sectors and strong labor force growth are pushing the unemployment rate higher," said Warren Hogan, chief economist at ANZ

Crude up 5%..... like why?

Earnings from J.P. Morgan (JPM) also disappointed leaving the stock lower by 4% and while Wells Fargo Corp (WFC) beat estimates but with the stock being in an unfavored sector, it too was dragged lower. Interesting was JPM’s CEO Jaime Dimon feeling as though large banks are being picked on. Do you feel sorry for him? I thought not.

Stocks were crushed early only to be rescued after the Fed Beige Book which convinced bulls that “Bad news is good once again” which then allowed for the (you guessed it) 2:15 Buy Program Express which is displayed on the 5 minute SPY chart below.

Just yesterday, the SEC charged Canadian Aleksandr Milrud with orchestrating a lucrative market manipulation scheme that relied on "layering" (or "spoofing") in which a trader places orders solely to trick others into buying or selling at artificially inflated or depressed prices... So we found it ironic that twice today, Nanex exposed examples of the "spoofing" manipulation in crude oil futures (which soared) and S&P 500 e-mini futures (which soared)...

USD/JPY ...... The dlr continued its o/n gain in Asia on lower-than-expected Japan's core machinery orders and rebound in the Nikkei.
Reuters reported Japan's core machinery orders rose less than expected in Nov due to declining orders in the manufacturing sector, suggesting companies are still cautious about capital expenditure due to worries about domestic demand.

Compared with a year earlier, core orders, a highly volatile data series regarded as an indicator of capital spending in the coming 6 to 9 months, tumbled 14.6%. The median estimate was for a 5.8% annual decline.

The Cabinet Office lowered its assessment of machinery orders, saying the recovery is showing signs of stalling. If business investment remains weak, more economists could start to question Abe's argument that his policies are leading to a revival of Japan's hollowed-out manufacturing sector.

The 1.3% rise in core orders, which exclude those of ships and electric power utilities, compared with a 5.0% rise forecast by economists in a Reuters poll. It followed a 6.4% decline in Oct.


Thursday will see the release of Japan's Corp Goods Price and Machinery Orders, U.K.'s RICS Housing Survey, Australia's Employment, Unemployment, Participation Rate, Germany's GDP, euro zone trade balance, U.S.'s initial jobless claims PPI, NY Fed Manufacturing, Philly Fed Business Index.
