Risk Disclosure of FX and Precious Metal Margin Trading Services

  • The risk of loss in leveraged foreign exchange and precious metal trading can be substantial. You may sustain losses in excess of your initial margin funds. Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” orders, will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your Account. You should therefore carefully consider whether FX and precious metal margin trading is suitable for you in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.
  • Renminbi (RMB) is subject to foreign exchange control by the PRC government. If your Margin Trading Contract involves Offshore Renminbi, you will be subject to foreign control and currency risk of RMB.
  • Trading on an electronic trading system may differ from trading on other trading systems or platforms. You will be exposed to risks associated with the system including the failure of hardware and software, which could result in your order not being executed according to your instructions or at all.
  • Investment involves risks. The above risk disclosure cannot disclose all the risks involved. You should read and understand all the relevant documents and risk disclosure (in particular, the Risk Disclosure Statement contained in the relevant application form) before making any investment decision.
  • If you are uncertain of or do not understand the nature of and the risks involved in leveraged foreign exchange and precious metal trading, you should seek independent professional advice.

Risk Disclosure of FX2 - FX and Precious Metal Trading Services

  • Foreign exchange and precious metal trading involves a high degree of risk. You may sustain a substantial or even total loss of your initial collateral. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position of outstanding FX2 Trading Contracts. Placing contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders, will not necessarily limit your loss at the designated price. In extreme circumstances whereby the market moves significantly against your positions, you may be required to make additional deposits or interest payments within a short period of time to maintain your positions. If you fail to provide the required deposits or interest payments immediately, your positions under all outstanding FX2 Trading Contracts may be closed out without prior notice. You should therefore carefully consider if foreign exchange and precious metal trading is suitable for you in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.
  • Renminbi (“RMB”) is subject to foreign exchange control by the PRC government. If your FX2 Trading Contract involves offshore RMB, you will be subject to foreign control and currency risks of RMB.
  • Trading on an electronic trading system may differ from trading on other trading systems or platforms. You will be exposed to risks associated with the system including the failure of hardware and software, which could result in your order not being executed according to your instructions or at all.
