Product Description

Contracts For Differences (CFDs), are complex financial products in accordance with the applicable law. They are traded on an ‘over-the-counter (‘OTC’) basis and not through a regulated market. CFDs, which are agreements to exchange the difference in value of a particular underlying instrument between the time at which the agreement is entered into and the time at which it is closed, allowing the investors to replicate the economic effect of trading in particular currencies or other asset classes without requiring actual ownership. When trading CFDs there is no physical exchange of assets; therefore, financial settlement results from the difference at the time the position is closed and the price of the underlying asset at the time the position is opened. The most common underlying assets include stocks, commodities, currencies, and market indexes. By entering into a CFD you are either entitled to be paid an amount of money or required to pay an amount of money depending on movements in the price or value of the CFD.

CFD Operations and Objectives

The objective of a CFD instrument, i.e. currency pairs, shares, commodities, and indices, is to speculate on the performance of an underlying currency pair without owning it. You will achieve profit if your speculation on the performance (positive or negative performance) was correct, with the difference between the opening price and closing price of the underlying asset as the performance, or suffer a loss of a portion or all of your trading balance should the underlying asset of the CFD perform against your speculation.

When a position is closed, the investor gains the difference between the market value of the underlying asset at the time of closing and opening a position, if:

  • When holding a long position (buying a CFD), the price at the time the position closes, is higher than the price at the time the position was opened, which is automatically converted to the trading account currency;
  • When holding a short position (selling a CFD), the price, at the time the position closes, is lower than the price at the.

Intended Retail Investor

CFDs are intended for investors who have knowledge of, or are experienced with, leveraged products. Likely investors will understand how the prices of CFDs are derived, the key concepts of margin and leverage and the fact they may lose all their invested capital in a short period of time. Investors should have a high-risk tolerance and willing to accept rapid price fluctuations and the specific risk of leverage in exchange for the opportunity of higher returns. In addition, the investor must understand the risk/reward profile of the product compared to traditional share dealing.

Risk Warning

Trading Forex/CFD & Options on margin carries a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all investors. Trading risks are magnified by leverage – the total loss you may incur may significantly exceed the amount invested in a single trade and may end up losing all your invested capital. Values may fluctuate significantly in times of high volatility or market/economic uncertainty; such swings are even more significant if your positions are leveraged and may also adversely affect your position. Before deciding to trade any such leveraged products you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite.

The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading on margin and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.

All accounts are margin leveraged accounts. Clients must maintain an adequate amount of margin to sustain their positions, if equity levels drop to 50% of used margin, a margin call will occur, and positions will be automatically closed out at 30%. It is the investor’s responsibility to maintain a sufficient level of margin.

The following charges shall be applicable in respect of Transactions executed on your Account:
