Before engaging in any type of foreign currency trading, you should carefully consider the risks involved by examining your experience as well as investment objectives and risk tolerance. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose, and it is advisable never to invest in borrowed funds.
Trading in foreign currency products carries with it a high degree of risk. Some of those risks include, but are not limited to, leverage, creditworthiness, limited regulatory protection and market volatility that may substantially impact the price or liquidity of a currency or currency pair. The leveraged nature inherent in forex trading means that any market movement will have an equally proportional effect on your funds on deposit with us. This leveraged feature of forex trading may work for you as well as against you. It is possible that you could sustain a total loss of your initial margin deposit and be required to deposit additional funds to maintain your position. Your failure to meet your obligation to deposit additional funds may result in your position being liquidated and requiring you to satisfy any losses that may result.
