Risk Disclosure Statement for Trades in Currencies and other Financial Instruments (Including CFD´s, Futures and Options)
This brief statement, which constitutes an addition to these Terms, does not disclose all of the risks and other significant aspects of trading currencies, derivatives and other financial instruments. In consideration of the risks, the client should enter into transactions with the mentioned products only if they understand the nature of the contracts and the contractual legal relationship into which they are entering and the extent of their exposure to risk. The client should carefully consider whether transacting is appropriate for them in light of their experience, objectives, financial resources and other relevant circumstances.
Currencies and Derivatives
Effect of “Leverage” or “Gearing”
Transactions in currencies and derivatives carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin may be small relative to the value of the currencies or derivatives contract so that transactions are “leveraged” or “geared”. A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds the clients have deposited or will have to deposit; this may work against the client as well as for them. Clients may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the Providers to maintain their position. If the market moves against the position and/or Margin Requirement is increased, clients may be called upon to deposit additional funds on short notice to maintain their position. Failing to comply with a request for a deposit of additional funds, may result in closure of the position(s) by the Providers on behalf of the client and client will be liable for any resulting loss or deficit or debit balance.
Risk-reducing Orders or Strategies
The placing of certain orders (e.g. “stop-loss” orders or “stop-limit” orders), which are intended to limit losses to certain amounts, may not be adequate given that markets conditions make it impossible to execute such orders, e.g. due to illiquidity in the market. Strategies using combinations of positions, such as “spread” and “straddle”‘ positions may be as risky as taking simple “long” or “short” positions.
Variable Degree of Risk
Transactions in options carry a high degree of risk. Purchasers and sellers of options should familiarize themselves with the type of option (i.e., put or call) which they contemplate trading and the associated risks. Clients should calculate the extent to which the value of the options must increase for their position to become profitable, taking into account the premium and all transaction costs. The purchaser of options may offset or exercise the options or allow the option to expire. The exercise of an option results either in a cash settlement or in the purchaser acquiring or delivering the underlying interest. If the option is on a future, the purchaser will acquire a futures position with associated liabilities for margin (see the section on leverage or gearing above). If the purchased option is out-of-the-money when it expires, clients will suffer a total loss of their investment, which will consist of the option premium plus transaction costs. If the clients are contemplating purchasing out-of-the-money options, they should be aware that the chance of such options becoming profitable ordinarily is remote.
Selling (“writing” or “granting”) an option generally entails considerably greater risk than purchasing options. Although the premium received by the seller is fixed, the seller may sustain a loss well in excess of that amount. The seller will be liable for additional margin to maintain the position if the market moves unfavorably. The seller will also be exposed to the risk of the purchaser exercising the option and the seller will be obligated to either settle the option in cash or to acquire or deliver the underlying interest. If the option is on a future, the seller will acquire a position in a future with associated liabilities for margin (see the section on leverage or gearing above). If the option is “covered” by the seller holding a corresponding position in the underlying asset, in a future or in another option, the risk may be reduced. In case the option is not covered, the risk of loss can be unlimited.
Certain exchanges in some jurisdictions permit deferred payment of the option premium, exposing the purchaser to liability for margin payments not exceeding the amount of the premium. The purchaser is still subject to the risk of losing the premium and transaction costs. When the option is exercised or expires, the purchaser is responsible for any unpaid premium outstanding at that time.
Additional Risks Common to Currencies and Derivative Transactions
Terms and Conditions of Contracts
Clients should read and understand the terms and conditions of the Contracts entered into with the respective Providers and also the information on associated obligations (e.g. the circumstances under which clients may become obligated to make or take delivery of the underlying interest of a futures contract and, in respect of options, expiration dates and restrictions on the time for exercise). Under certain circumstances the specifications of outstanding contracts (including the exercise price of an option) may be modified by the exchange or clearing house to reflect changes in the underlying interest.
Suspension or Restriction of Trading and Pricing Relationships
Market condition (e.g. illiquidity) and/or the operation of the rules of certain markets (e.g., the suspension of trading in any contract or contract month because of price limits or “circuit breakers”) may increase the risk of loss by making it difficult or impossible to effect transactions or close/ offset positions. If clients have sold options, this may increase the risk of loss. Clients should understand such risks, and that CFC cannot be held liable for any loss on account of trading suspensions.
Normal pricing relationships between the underlying asset and a derivative do not always exist. The absence of an underlying reference price may make it difficult to judge “fair” value.
Deposited Cash and Property
Clients should familiarize themselves with the protections accorded to the Collateral deposited by way of money or other assets in domestic and foreign transactions, particularly in the event of a firm insolvency or bankruptcy. The extent to which clients may recover their money or other assets is governed by the legislation and local rules in the country at which location the Provider acts.
Commission and Other Charges
Before clients begin to trade, they should obtain a clear explanation of all commission, fees and other charges for which they will be liable. These charges will affect their net profit or loss. CFC is not responsible for any loss of a client on account of applicability of commissions.
Transactions in Other Jurisdictions
Transactions on markets in other jurisdictions, including markets formally linked to a domestic market, may expose the client to additional risk. Such markets may be subject to regulation, which may offer different or diminished investor protection. The local regulatory authority will be unable to compel the enforcement of the rules of regulatory authorities or markets in other jurisdictions where the client’s transactions have been effected.
The profit or loss in transactions in foreign currency-denominated contracts in another currency than the client’s account currency will be affected by fluctuations in currency rates where there is a need to convert from the currency denomination of the contract to the account currency.
Most open-outcry and electronic trading facilities are supported by computer-based component systems for the order-routing, execution, matching, registration or clearing of trades. As with all facilities and systems, they are vulnerable to temporary disruption or failure. Clients ability to recover certain losses may be subject to limits on liability imposed by the system provider, the market, the clearing house and/or member firms. Such limits may vary: clients should ask the firm with which they deal for details in this respect.
Trading on an electronic trading system may differ not only from trading in an open-outcry market but also from trading on other electronic trading systems. If clients undertake transactions on an electronic trading system, they will be exposed to risks associated with the system including the failure of hardware and software. The result of any system failure may be that orders are either not executed according to client’s instructions, is not executed at all and a lack of capability to keep clients informed continuously about their positions and fulfilment of the Margin Requirement.
In some jurisdictions, Providers are permitted to effect off-exchange transactions. The Provider with which the client has opened their account with and is dealing with may be acting as counterparts to the transaction. It may be difficult or impossible to liquidate an existing position, to assess the value, to determine a fair price or to assess the exposure to risk. For these reasons, these transactions may involve increased risks. Off-exchange transactions may be less regulated or subject to a separate regulatory regime. Before the clients undertake such transactions, they should familiarize themselves with applicable rules and attendant risks.
Appropriateness Risk Assessment
Upon the opening of the client’s account, Providers carries out an assessment of their appropriateness to trade in the Financial markets and determines, based on information the client has provided to the Providers, if clients have sufficient knowledge and experience to understand the risks involved in this trading. The assessment does not relieve the clients of the need to carefully consider whether to trade or not through CFC and its Providers. If the client has been warned that trading in Financial instruments may not be appropriate for them, then the client should refrain from trading CFDs until they gain sufficient knowledge and experience. The client could for example trade on a Demo Account prior to trading them in a live environment to be sufficiently acquainted with the relevant risks incurred.
Internet Trading Risks
There are risks associated with utilizing an Internet-based deal execution trading system including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connection. Since CFC & it’s platform Provider do not control signal power, its reception or routing via Internet, configuration of the client’s equipment or reliability of its connection, CFC cannot be responsible for communication failures, distortions or delays when trading via the Internet. Provider employs backup systems and contingency plans to minimize the possibility of system failure, and trading via telephone is available during trading/business hours as communicated to clients.
CFC or Provider shall not be liable for any delay or any other interruption which may occur in presenting the data due to any reason including network (Internet) reasons or snags in the system, breakdown of the system or any other equipment, server breakdown, maintenance shutdown, breakdown of communication services or inability of CFC or Provider to present the data.
In no event shall CFC be liable for any damages, including without limitation direct or indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages, losses or expenses arising in connection with any data presented by CFC or Provider.
Clients need to ensure that they always monitor the positions in their account at all times and it is the client who will be solely responsible for this. CFC are not responsible for monitoring positions on the client’s account.
Commissions & Charges
Before placing the initial trade, clients should be aware of all commissions and other charges for which they will be liable which can be obtained either by contacting their respective Relationship Manager or CFC Customer Service Department. Clients should make themselves aware of potential costs or liabilities that could ensue from that position including but not exclusively: Holding costs, Swaps, Corporate Actions such as Rights Issues, Dividends, Stock Splits etc.
In addition to Commissions and Charges, the Client shall be obliged to pay all applicable VAT and other taxes, storage and delivery charges, fees of Regulated Markets and clearing houses and all other fees incurred by the Providers in connection with any order, Contract and/or in connection with Providers maintaining the Client relationship.
The Client accepts that interest charges, commissions, brokerage fees and other costs associated with the Client’s trading activities may be extensive and may, in addition to trading losses, deplete or exceed the value of deposited Collateral and negatively affect the Client’s Account. The Client acknowledges and accepts that frequent transactions may result in a sum total of commissions, fees, price or interest/financing rate adjustments for trades conducted that may be substantial and not necessarily be offset by the net profits, if any, achieved from the relevant trades. The Client is responsible for correctly assessing whether the size of the total commissions, fees, price and/or interest/financing rate adjustments, for trades conducted on the Client’s Account, makes trading commercially viable.
