If the information provided on your Match Securities account application indicates one or more of the following:
We need to inform you that trading in CFD/Currency may not be appropriate for you. Such trading carries a high degree of risk and may result in losses greater than your initial deposit. MS provides an execution-only service to its clients and you will need to rely upon your own skill and judgement when trading these markets.
By opening an account with us, we assume that you have read, understood and accepted this warning, and that you agree that one or more of the below statements apply to you.
Attitude to risk and investment objectives:
Trading in Equities, Fixed Income, Foreign Exchange (FX), Commodities, Derivatives (Futures and Options) and ETFs
Trading in Equities, Fixed Income, Foreign Exchange (FX), Commodities, Derivatives (Futures and Options) and ETFs, particularly margin trading, involves the potential for profit as well as the risk of loss which may vastly exceed the amount of money you commit to any trade or transaction.
Movements in the prices of these instruments are influenced by a variety of factors of global origin, many of which are unpredictable. In addition, governments intervene in certain markets from time to time, directly and by regulation, and particularly in markets in currencies and interest rate related contracts and derivatives. Such intervention is often intended to influence prices and may, together with other factors, cause all of such markets to move rapidly in the same direction because of, among other things, interest rate fluctuations.
There are significant movements in the price of Equities, Fixed Income, Foreign Exchange (FX), Commodities, Derivatives (Futures and Options) and ETFs which may result in action by the market as a result of which the Client may be unable to settle adverse trades. Certain investment strategies or hedging techniques, including those involving ‘spread’ positions or ‘straddles’, may be as risky as taking simple ‘long’ or ‘short’ positions.
Although financial instruments can be used for the management of investment risk, some of these products are unsuitable for many investors. Different instruments involve different levels of exposure to risk and in deciding whether to trade in such instruments you should be aware of the issues set out in this risk warning. However, this risk warning cannot disclose all of the risks and other significant aspects of such instruments.
You should not deal in Equities, Fixed Income, Foreign Exchange (FX), Commodities, Derivatives (Futures and Options) and ETFs unless you understand their nature and the full extent of your respective exposure to risk and losses.
You may be required to deposit substantial additional margin, at short notice, to hold your positions. If you fail to provide funds to hold your positions, they may be closed without further reference to you.
Warning: Internet trading risks
There are risks associated with using an internet trading system. These include, but are not limited to: error in hardware, software, internet connection or any force majeure (i.e. flood; extraordinary weather condition; earthquake, or other act of God; fire; war; insurrection; riot; labour dispute; accident; action of government; communications or power failure; or equipment or software malfunction).
MS and its affiliates (‘we’, ‘our’ or ‘us’) cannot control the signal power, its reception or routing via internet, configuration of your equipment or reliability of its connection. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for any communication failure, distortion or delay (although we will attempt to minimise the possibility of system failure).
Please call us immediately if you are unable to access your account and we will execute your orders over the phone. Please note for security reasons you will need to go through our identification process before we accept any orders from you. If we are unable to identify you, we will not be able to carry out your orders.
Warning: Risks of margin trading
Trading in currency and bullion, particularly margin trading, involves the potential for profit as well as the risk of loss. This may vastly exceed the amount of money you commit to any trade or transaction. Movements in the price of currency or bullion rates are influenced by a variety of factors of global origin, many of which are unpredictable. Violent movements in the price of foreign exchange or bullion rates may result in action by the market. As a result, you may be unable to settle adverse trades.
Our staff are unable to guarantee the accuracy of any market predictions (should they offer such predictions) and cannot guarantee a maximum loss that you may suffer.
