    Hi Neeby:

    I can say, unfortunately, from experience that InterbankFX will not allow you to lose your entire account on a margin call. 50% is the cut off point. For example, if you have $4,000 in your account (or $40,000 for that matter, the math's the same) and get a margin call you'll loose 50% and maybe a bit more if the market's volatile. To actually lose everything it takes persistent determination in the pursuit of horrible risk/money management; e.g., multiple margin calls.

    By the way, my risk management skills/discipline (ability to trade instead of allowing myself to gamble) has done a 180% turn since those dark days - back when things were rotten, really rotten
