What happens if I am in a trade during a limit halt or Flash Crash?

Please try to not be in a trade directly prior to or during a limit up/down move. This link is updated daily to display the limit price levels for each instrument:

Erratic movements can cause data lag issues and/or price spikes. This can trigger Rithmic to liquidate your positions based on the trailing drawdown limit. Unfortunately, if this happens, your account has likely been disqualified. While we do not have any rules against trading during the news, it is your responsibility to avoid events that will likely cause erratic movements (ex. FOMC meetings).

Moreover, we are not responsible for any issues or glitches involving software, hardware, data, or errors made by the trader.
