This is one year from the date when E*TRADE sold off my Amazon 4x margin shares at $1440 2 weeks before Amazon raised 15%. I rode it down on 4x margin from $1700 to $1450 and they made me eat 2x margin 15% loss despite me having $10k cash leftover. Amazon‘s margin requirement was changed back to 25% 4x two weeks later too. (So they changed it to 2x for 2 weeks sold off my shares and then changed it back)
