If the value of the collateral declines substantially, falling below the maintenance margin requirement, you may be called upon deposit substantial additional funds or collaterals on short notice in order to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds or collaterals within the specified time, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account. Trading in foreign securities includes, but is not limited to, currency risks and rules and regulations peculiar to the respective foreign stock markets.
