One thought on “Saxo Bank

  1. Свежий отзыв о сегодняшней сделке. Закрываю с прибылью SFH6 и тут же вижу что автоматом открылась противоположная сделка. Я в недоумении. Закрыл ее уже с потерей, опять автоматом открылась противоположная сделка. Убыток уже ощутимый. Написал им гневное письмо на линию поддержки – посмотрим что ответят. Главное, я до сих пор не знаю открыта ли у меня позиция или нет. Ну а то что моя заявка в стакане биржи не появляется – сразу наводит на вопрос о том что что-то с этой конторкой не так. Надо ли говорить, что звонить бесполезно? Манагеры прикидываются крайне занятыми тупыми идиотами.
