Trading FX and CFDs on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all individuals. The high degree of leverage offered can work against you as well as for you. This is not a solicitation to invest and you should carefully consider your financial situation as to the suitability to your situation prior to making any investment or entering into any transaction. You should make yourself aware of all the risks associated with FX and CFDs trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any questions or concerns. Past performance is not indicative of future results, returns may vary according to market conditions.
