The Client shall hold full responsibility for all risks, financial resources used and the chosen trading strategy.
  • 1.2 We highly recommend maintaining a Margin Level no lower than 1,000%, as well as placing Stop Loss orders to limit potential losses.

Low spreads and zero commission depend on the product and account type. Over-the-counter leveraged derivative contracts, including contracts for difference and spot foreign exchange, are complex financial instruments. These instruments come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. You should consider whether you understand how these products work, whether you can afford to incur losses and whether you have the appropriate risk appetite. We recommend you seek professional advice before investing.
