You should only risk capital that you can afford to lose. In certain circumstances, due to fluctuations in market value you may not get back your initial investment amount. You may not only lose your initial investment but you may incur a liability to pay a further amount to cover losses. This means you can lose more money than you have invested.
Trading in CFDs is not suitable for everyone. CFDs are only suitable for investors who fully understand the risks associated with these products. You should ensure that you fully understand the risks involved, and seek independent advice if necessary.
Further information relating to the risks associated with CFDs is contained in the Product Disclosure Statement for the product you choose. You must ensure that you read and understand that document prior to opening an account with us. A Product Disclosure Statement is available for download from this website or on request from our offices. We also recommend you read and understand the document we have prepared called "Key Policies: CFDs" which is available here.
Movements in the price of the CFDs underlying asset (e.g. equities (shares), options, indices, foreign exchange rates, futures or commodity prices) are influenced by a variety of unpredictable factors of global origin.
Violent movements in the price of the underlying asset may occur as a result of which you may be unable to settle adverse trades. You do not own, or have any rights to underlying assets (e.g. the right to receive dividend payments in the case of equity CFDs).
