Disclaimers

Risk warning for trading leveraged FX
Transactions in leveraged FX carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the leveraged FX transaction. As such, the transaction is highly 'leveraged' or 'geared'. A relatively small market movement will have a porportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit; this can work in your favor or against you. You may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the firm to maintain your position. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to deposit substantial additional funds on short notice in order to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the specified time, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account.
