This specifically...

has only happened once. My first off floor big deal was trying to automate a multi-strategy gray box. Truly my siren song, and the reason I first joined this forum.

My other forced reconciliation was the two weeks following 9/11...which could vaguely be argued as "not my fault".

Ive walked away for perseverance sake, but I've only gone to zero in the trading account twice.
