Discuss Tutorial: nRF52832 Breakout Board Hookup Guide -
Note: The schematic for the nRF52832's referenced the pins with 3 different designations (the QFN48 pin assignment name, pin location, and the trace name ). This can be confusing when you want to define the pins for Arduino. So I looked at how the other pins were defined for reference. I noticed that the analog pin defined in software for A4 was defined on line 60 as pin "28" instead of the trace name"P28". Therefore, I defined PIN_WIRE_SDA as "24" and PIN_WIRE_SCL as "25 instead of "P24" and "P25". I decided not to use pin 21 since it was already being used for RESET and it was not broken out on the sides. I also could not get this working on the analog pins A4 and A5. It might be due to the defined pins being used already for analog inputs or the hardware not being able to support two functions on the nRF52832.

Paraphrasing Keynes, “Markets can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent.”

The February 2018 flash crash was instructive. The culprit was a slightly esoteric exchange-traded product that has a rebalancing mechanism inside of it. And that rebalancing mechanism ended up destroying the product on one specific day when the market moved a little bit more than the product was designed to handle. The product was required to trade a lot of instruments in response to that move.
