FX and CFDs trading are high-risk investments. FX and CFDs are leveraged products that can result in losses exceeding your initial deposit. 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. Trading FX and CFDs is speculative and may involve the loss of principal; therefore, funds placed under management should be risk capital funds that if lost will not significantly affect one's personal financial well-being. No representation is being made that participating in a managed forex account will necessarily lead to profit. Investors may incur a series of consecutive losses and substantial equity drawdowns that can deplete their funds before the occurrence of any meaningful profit accumulation.
