Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
Dutch term or phrase: geraakt
Can anyone help with this please...
The context is as follows:
"dat is vooral relevant voor "correlation traders" - het aantal defaults vooraleer je voor beleggers is uiteindelijk veel belangrijker."

English translation:(get) hit
Explanation:
Looks like 'hit' to me especially in this context


From http://www.essextrading.com/Should_You_Trade_Futures.htm
Some things that will almost certainly happen to you at some point if you choose to trade futures:
1 You will buy at the high of the day.
2 You will sell at the low of the day.
3 You will get stopped out of a long trade at the low of the day and the up trend will then resume.
4 You will get stopped out of a short trade at the high of the day and the down trend will then resume.
5 You will have more consecutive losing trades than you expected.
6 If you get stopped out 3 times in a row using tight stops and then widen your stops, that one will get hit too (resulting in a much bigger loss).
7 If you get stopped out 3 times in a row using wide stops and then tighten your stops, that one will get hit right before a big move that you would have been in on if you had continued to use wide stops.

agree  EgonWegh: Quite right, I suppose - but then there would still be some words missing in the original (most notably the word "wordt" as in "geraakt worden") despite what asker says ...
