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.
