Risk Warning: Remember that Contracts for Difference are a leveraged product and can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit. CFD trading may not be suitable for everyone, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved. Trading in CFDs carries a high degree of risk, and prices may change quickly and go down as well as up. Past performance will not necessarily be repeated and is no guarantee of future success. CFD contracts can only be settled in cash. Transactions in CFDs may also have a contingent liability. Contingent liability investment transactions, which are margined, require you to make a series of payments against the purchase price, instead of paying the whole purchase price immediately. You may sustain a total loss of the margin you deposit with a firm to establish or maintain a position. If the market moves against you, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional margin at short notice to maintain the position. If you fail to do so within the time required, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be responsible for the resulting deficit.
