The winner's trading horror story


It was Thursday and it was late. It was raining and thunder rolled over the rooftops.

I was looking through financial news and thought about calling it a night.

I felt chills running down my spine when I heard the footsteps approaching and the raspy voice whispered straight into my ear: “You will open 100 lots EURCAD sell position if you want to live…”

With trembling hands I opened the FXOpen MT4 platform. I didn’t have enough money to open this kind of volume, even if I closed my current positions. I wondered if it was just a dream…

But then I saw the putrefying hand on my shoulder – “What are you waiting for?”

I called FXOpen live trading support with the request to increase my leverage. The support employee informed me about the risks of higher leverage and asked me if I still wanted to set it at 1:500. Little did he know that the only risk I was worried about was the risk to annoy my zombie visitor.

I hung up, closed my existing positions and quickly opened EURCAD 100 lots, as my new friend requested.

“Good boy” – I heard laughter behind my back.

I looked at the chart and saw that the market started quickly moving in my favor. 10% profit, 20%, 50%.

“Now cloooooose” – and I obeyed the order.

I made $666 666 in 3 minutes.

Maybe the zombie was my friend after all?

“Now you will withdraw everything, convert it to gold coins and bring it to me!!!”

I wondered where it was.

“Central cemetery, 3d alley, 13th grave – you will see a sepulture with the name High Leverage. Open the grave and pour the coins inside… And don’t think about tricking me!!!”
