First of all, anyone can trade — with just $1 or ฿1. As with forex trading, there is no commission — only the bid/ask spread. Customers place buy or sell orders with a leverage variable selected anywhere from none to a factor of 10:1.

I sure hope people not already familiar with FOREX will understand that bitcoin exchange rate volatility + leveraged trading = getting zhoutonged

Remember, someone is happily coming up a winner and getting the money, because it's a zero-sum game like the futures market. If Zhou is taking the other side of the trades, then he better win more than he loses. I don't fault the operator unless he fails to deliver.

I agree that most people might be happier if they just had a big party with their trading funds. You know the way to make a million dollars in margin trading? --- first you make $2 million then lose half.
