Risk Warning and Legal Information: All Clients and prospective Clients should read carefully the following Risk Warning and Legal Information.
A change in laws and regulations may materially impact a Financial Instrument and investments in a sector or market. A change in laws or regulations made by a government or a regulatory body or a decision reached by a judicial body can increase business operational costs, lessen investment attractiveness, change the competitive landscape and as such alter the profit possibilities of an investment. This risk is unpredictable and may vary from market to market.
One of the most common way to research CFD and Forex positions is through analysis, that relies on interpreting data from past market performance to establish some kind of prediction towards future pricing. However, it should be noted that past performance of CFDs is not an indication nor guarantee of future performance. It means that traders might use the data from past performance to speculate on the market, but they should not rely on it. When referring to past performance, an investment firm must disclose the sources, currency, commission paid and a warning that the figures are merely historic. As with all financial trading instruments, there are risks a client must consider before trading CFDs.
Leverage Risk: The high degree of leverage associated with these types of investments means that the degree of risk compared to other financial products is higher. Trading with leverage may work against you resulting in substantial loss as well as for you resulting in substantial gain. Even when market conditions are relatively calm, leverage can create large gains or losses very quickly. This may cause your broker to take action to avoid a negative account balance. In either case, the Company may close any or all open positions in the account to remedy the situation.
Leverage is the ratio between the transaction size and the margin requirement/initial margin that is required to open a position. Trading using leverage means you can magnify the returns on your investment but it is important to remember that losses will be magnified as well and it is possible to lose all your initial deposit.
For example: If the client deposited USD 1000 and assuming his/her leverage level is 1:50 than the highest amount that the client can trade with is USD 50.000. 1:50 ratio means that in order to open a position, the initial margin is fifty (50) times less than the transactions size.
