2 Marginal Trading
2.1 There can be substantial risk of funds loss when trading financial instruments. You should carefully consider reasonableness of making such transactions in terms of your financial resources.
2.2 You are fully responsible for all risks, the use of financial resources and the choice of a corresponding trade strategy.
2.3 There is a possibility to lose all the funds on your accounts with the Company (and any additional funds deposited as credit leverage to maintain open positions) in a relatively short period of time if the situation on financial markets is unfavorable for your positions.
2.4 To maintain open positions you may be required to provide additional funds of considerable size in a short term if the price movements are unfavorable for you. Your positions could be forcefully closed with loss, and you will be responsible for any losses generated if you cannot provide necessary funds on time.
2.5 It is strongly recommended to maintain the Margin Level at least at 1000%, as well as to place Stop Loss orders to limit potential losses.
2.6 The Company may need significantly greater amount of time to process requests, including requests to close certain positions due to conditions prevailing in the financial markets. For example, it can happen when prices change rapidly.
2.7 Stop Loss orders intended to limit losses may not necessarily limit your losses to the expected level, because in the emerging market situation it may be impossible to execute such a request at a specified price.
2.8 You should consider the Company’s fees as well as the information on other charges before you begin a transaction.
2.9 The Company may act as counterparty for the transactions with financial instruments, and that could lead to a conflict of interests.
