Disclosures

  • Risk of CFD transaction:
    The prices of CFDs will be influenced by, among other things, the market price of the underlying product of the CFD, the earnings and performance of the company or companies whose shares comprise the underlying product or a related index, the performance of the economy as a whole, the changing supply and demand relationships for the underlying product or related instruments and indices, governmental, commercial and trade programs and policies, interest rates, national and international political and economic events and the prevailing psychological characteristics of the relevant marketplace. Trading Contracts for Differences (“CFDs”) is highly risky due to the speculative and volatile markets in these products and the leverage (margin) involved. Trading these products may result in a loss of funds greater than you deposited in the account.
  • Margin Requirement:
    The margin ratio applied to CFD transactions will be 22% for individual clients and 12.5% for corporate clients for the initial margin and 20% for individual clients and 10% for corporate clients for maintenance margin.
