The expected profit is 20 % p.a. In September 2019, we realized a larger loss due to an error of the MKT order type. ATS placed a Market order and, due to a weekend attack in the UAE, there was no counterparty to trade at the expected price, after the market was opened. The system was subsequently shut down and an updated version was deployed in March 2020, also with a new LMT Market order.
