In considering whether to trade or to authorize someone else to trade for you, you should be aware of the following:

If you run a capital market position you may sustain a total loss. If you run a capital market position or engage in off-exchange foreign currency trading you may sustain a total loss. If the market moves against your position, you may be called upon by your trader to deposit a substantial amount of additional margin funds, on short notice, in order to maintain your position. If you do not provide the requested funds within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated at a loss, and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account. ​​
