  6. Margin

    Margin investment is a high-risk financial arrangement.  You shall be required to deposit a sum of money to the Company as security before you engage into margin investment on the Online Platform by your Account.  Engaging in margin investment may cause you to suffer loss more than the amount of security deposit.   Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” orders, will not necessarily limit your loss at such designated prices, because market conditions may become volatile in a very short period of time, making it impossible for you, the Company and/or the Online Platform to execute your orders at the designated price.  You may be required to make additional deposits within a short period of time in order to maintain your positions.  If you do not immediately provide the required deposits, your positions under all outstanding orders may be closed out without prior notice to, and without consent from, you. Invariably, closing out of your positions in such market conditions is likely to result in a loss to you and, in addition, you will be liable to make further payments to the Company in the event that your deposits do not cover the full loss accruing to your Account upon closing out.  You should therefore carefully consider whether such a financing arrangement is suitable in light of your own financial positions and investment objectives.
