Forex Risk Disclosure

High-Risk Investment

Trading off-exchange foreign currencies on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of expertise, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some, all or more than your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.

Risk Disclosure Statement

The risk of loss in Forex trading can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. In considering whether to trade or authorize someone else to trade for you, you should also be aware of the following:

Forex transactions are not traded on an exchange, and those funds deposited with the counterparty for Forex transactions may not receive the same protections as funds used to margin or guarantee exchange-traded futures and options contracts. If the counterparty becomes insolvent and you have a claim for amounts deposited or profits earned on transactions with the counterparty, your claim may not receive a priority. Without a priority, you are a General Creditor and your claim will not be paid, along with the claims of other General Creditors, from any monies still available after priority claims are paid. Even customer funds that the counterparty keeps separate from its own operating funds may not be safe from the claims of other General and Priority Creditors.

The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in Forex trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses.
