Ah, OK, a form of hedging. Here in the UK we do have government protection up to a certain level for registered brokers. This protection would cover most small traders and investors but those with larger accounts would need to spread their capital over more than one broker to protect it.

There is also a useful feature offered by some brokers called guaranteed protection. What this does is protect you in the event you suffer catastrophic losses trading a highly leveraged product. With guaranteed protection the most you will lose is your account balance and you will not be liable for further margin calls. This gives great peace of mind as you cannot owe a broker offering this protection more than your account balance.

Yes something like that, but not limited to that, as in these type of situation, how to manage the position is key to survival.

Example, if a snb situation happens, you implemented a lock through 2 account, say maybe a futures and a spot, spot gets margin called and closed, futures will be riding profits, and it become a passive long break out trade.
