HIGH RISK WARNING
Clients and investors are advised that Foreign Exchange Trading and speculation carries with it a high level of risk and may not suit each individual’s personal circumstances. Before deciding to trade with CP Markets, clients are advised to carefully consider their investment objectives, financial status, level of experience and risk tolerance. Clients should bear in mind the possibility of sustaining a partial or total loss of invested funds and therefore are advised not to invest capital that they cannot afford to lose.
CP Markets strongly advises clients to seek advice from an independent financial advisor if there are any doubts concerning the risks associated with foreign exchange trading.
TRADING ON MARGIN AND LEVERAGE
CP Markets provides leverage for clients to trade on margin of up to a maximum of 1:500. For example, a trading contract on leverage of 1:200 will only require 0.5% of the contract value as margin. Small price movements in the underlying instruments will result in large potential gains/losses on the client’s trade.
However, trading on margin is a double edge sword where clients have the potential to both receive high rewards and at the same time sustain huge losses. Trading on margin carries a high level of risks and CP Markets strongly advises clients to evaluate their risk appetite and personal risk tolerance level before engaging in any trading activities using the leverage provided by The Company.
CP Markets hereby absolve itself from all liabilities in association with losses sustained by clients due to trading on margin and leverage.
