4. The Trading Process

You must ensure that you are fully aware of the nature of trading in financial instruments including the terminology and the procedures involved.  Financial instruments carry a high degree of risk. Whilst gearing and leverage means that you may only need to place a small deposit to commence trading this may result in large losses (which you will have to pay) or large gains.  Further information is set out in the risk warning disclosure.  It is your responsibility to ensure that you have read the risk warning disclosure document and fully understand and appreciate the risks.

5. Trading Hours

5.1 Subject to the clauses below and to the terms of this agreement in general, we will carry on our activities with you within our trading hours, we will only quote prices and accept orders or  instructions  in  respect  of  any  contract  during  our  trading  hours.  Support and phone trading will be available 24/5 Monday to Friday.
5.2 Where,  in  our  reasonable  opinion,  a  public  holiday in  any jurisdiction  affects the relevant market, we shall not be obliged to quote prices or accept orders or instructions in respect of any contract related to that market for the relevant time.
5.3 In some cases, financial instruments may only be traded during the time when the relevant exchange is open ("Limited Trading Hours"). Where your contract relates to such financial instruments, we shall not be obliged to quote prices or accept orders or instructions during any time when the relevant exchange is closed for business. We shall endeavour to inform you of which contracts are subject to limited trading hours through website notification, e- mail alerts and other communication channels. We may amend the list of such contracts at any  time,  and  it  is  your  responsibility  to  ensure  that  you  are  aware  of  which  of  your contracts may be affected.

6. Advice

6.1 You should also advise us in writing as soon as possible of your investment objectives and any relevant restrictions. Any such restrictions shall not be treated as breached solely as a result of subsequent variations in the value or price of any investment(s) or other asset(s) credited to the account.

We reserve the right to carry out further credit checks at any time whilst this agreement is in force.
7.2 You must notify us immediately of any material changes to any of the information set out in your application form.
7.3 In the event that your application form is accepted, we will open an account for you and provide you with a user id and account number. You must not disclose these details to any other person. In the event that you believe that these details are known by a third party then you will notify us immediately.  You will assist us in investigating any misuse of your account.
7.4  You  confirm  that  you  are  responsible  to  keep  the  credentials  assigned  to  you  in  a  safe manner. We will not be responsible if your credentials are misused nor obliged to confirm or check the identity of anyone using or quoting your account.

7.5.3 Acknowledge and accept that we are under no obligation to transfer any monies to or accept any monies from any account other than the bank account.
7.6  Except  as  otherwise  expressly  provided  in  this  agreement,  if  you  have  more  than  one account  with  us,  these  will  be  treated  entirely  separately.  Therefore, any credit on one account (including monies deposited as margin) will not discharge your liabilities in respect of another account unless we exercise our rights under this agreement.
7.7 It is your responsibility to maintain your account at all such times. This includes ensuring that the required level of margin is in place.  If you have more than one account, this responsibility will relate to each account separately, unless we have agreed otherwise in writing with you.

7.9 We reserve the right to close or suspend your account at any time in accordance with the terms of this agreement.

8.1 All instructions or orders from you in respect of trades or transactions to be entered into by you shall be made by you using the relevant online systems and access provided to you for this purpose.  You  shall  be  responsible  for  safeguarding  your  access  in  respect  of  such online trading systems and shall ensure that your relevant access details and/or passwords are kept secure and strictly confidential at all times.

This shall be the case notwithstanding any delay or malfunction of the online trading systems or otherwise.
8.3  We  may  at  our  absolute  discretion  refuse  to  accept  or  act  in  accordance  with  any instructions or orders, without being under any obligation to give any reasons. If we decline an  instruction  or  order  we  will  take  reasonable  steps  to  notify  you  promptly  of  this  but subject to this will not be liable for any failure to accept or act on such instruction or order.
8.4 The online trading systems made available for your use are provided by third party providers whom we have requested to provide such services.  Your use of such online trading systems is therefore subject to the relevant third parties' terms in respect of such usage.

There may be delays or malfunctions in the online trading systems. This could, for example, prevent you being able to close out or execute   a   transaction.   By   entering   into   these   terms   and/or   trading   with   us,   you acknowledge  that  we  are  not  responsible  for  the  online  trading  systems  and  hold  us harmless against any loss you may suffer as a result of your usage of the online trading systems (including, without limitation, any trading losses suffered and any loss of profits or opportunities).
8.8 You shall promptly give any further instructions to us which we may reasonably request from you in respect of any transactions or other matters in relation to which we have accepted your instructions to act. If you do not do so, we may in our sole discretion take any steps at your cost which we consider appropriate for you and/or for your protection.

9. Currency

9.1 Your account may comprise a number of currencies.  These will be subject to the following conditions:
9.1.1 We may accept payments into the account in different currencies and any payments due to or from us and any net balances on the account shall be reported by us in the respective  currency;  the  account  is  maintained  in  the  currency  selected  by  you pursuant to this agreement and which, in the absence of a selection, shall be us dollar ("base  currency")  and  any  other  currency  will  be  converted  at  the  exchange  rate existing at the point of conversion ("exchange rate");
9.1.2 You accept that when you enter into one or more contracts denominated in a currency other than the base currency, a currency ledger will be created on the account and will remain active until all contracts in such currency are closed. You will receive or pay interest to us for any credit or debit balance separately for each currency ledger;
9.1.3 We shall additionally report all sums due to or from us, whether by way of margin or otherwise,  and  the  net  balance  on  the  account  in  the  base  currency  using  the exchange rate;
9.1.4 We will generally settle trades in the relevant currency where the account comprises such currency ledger, save that where such currency balance is insufficient, we may settle trades in any currency in the account using the existing exchange rate; and
9.1.5 Unless we agree otherwise, withdrawals from the account may only be made in the same currency in which the respective deposit was made.

10.1 Except in relation to those discretionary services in respect of which we act as agent, we act as a matched principal with you, and the prices quoted by us are those that are received by us from banks, liquidity providers, and electronic exchanges. They are the price which we will deal with you. Save where:
10.1.1 We exercise any of our rights to close out a contract; or
10.1.2 The contract closes automatically.
10.2 It is your responsibility to decide whether or not you wish to deal at the price quoted by us.
10.3 You acknowledge and accept that when we quote a price, market conditions may move between our sending of the quote and the time your order is executed.  Such movement may be in your favour or otherwise.
10.4 You may at times place an order for a contract, which we/the liquidity provider considers as outside the standard trading size. This will be decided by us at our absolute discretion.
10.5 If you place an order for a contract outside the standard trading size, it may be subject to special conditions and requirements. We will notify you of these at the time of the order, in which case you shall not be obliged to proceed with the order.
10.6 It is possible that pricing errors and/or delays may occur in the prices of contracts quoted by us.  In such circumstances,  without  prejudice to any rights either  we or  you may have under applicable law, neither you nor we will be bound by any contract which purports to have  been  made  (whether  or  not  confirmed  by  us)  at  a  price  which  was,  or  ought reasonably to have been, known to either you or us to be materially incorrect or outdated at the time of the contract. The party asserting that the contract is avoided under this clause shall give notice to the other party within five (5) business days (meaning Monday to Friday excluding bank or public holidays) of the contract. "Pricing error" is defined as a misquote by us where: (a) the price quoted materially deviates from the prevailing market price (or the forward calculated market price) at the time that it was quoted. A material deviation is defined, but not exclusively, as a bid price or offer price which varies above or below the prevailing mid-market price of the underlying product by more than the size of the quoted bid/offer spread of that product.  For  example  a  bid/offer  quote  by  us  in  the  EUR/USD contract of 1.3912 – 1.3914 when the correct quote should have been 1.3908 – 1.3910 may be  considered by us to be  a pricing  error  as our  bid of  1.3912 is more  than the quoted spread of the product away from the midpoint (1.3909) of the correct quote; or (b) the price quote  varies  from  the  prevailing  market  price  due  to  technological  problems  including without limit delays in the transmission of electronic data and/or corrupt data.
10.7 Except in the case of fraud, we do not accept any liability for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of your reliance on a price which you knew, or ought reasonably to have known, to be materially incorrect.

11. Reporting Transactions / Statements

11.1 A full audit trail of your transactions and your periodical statements will be available for you to view online. Should you so wish and under instruction from you, we may send to you an electronic confirmation in respect of each transaction within a timely manner. We shall be entitled to submit reports to you either individually or at our discretion to any of you. You will be responsible for ensuring that all your individuals and/or organizations are kept fully and regularly informed as to the content of such confirmations and/or reports.
11.2 After executing a trade which closes out an open position your confirmation will include a difference  amount,  showing  your  profit  or  loss  arising  from  the  closing  out  which  will  be credited to or debited from your account and due for immediate settlement.
11.3 We may send you a monthly statement of every account comprised in your account which includes or may include uncovered open positions. Performance measurement will not be provided other than by special arrangement.  The statement shall include details of the contents and value of your account and open positions and such other information as may be agreed from time to time by us.
11.4 Any confirmation or statement of account or any certificate issued by us in respect of any transaction  or  other  matter  shall  be  conclusive  and  binding  on  you  unless  objection  in writing  is  received  by  us  within  two  (2)  business  days  of  the  actual  or  deemed  delivery date.

12. Margin

12.1 You will maintain sufficient cleared funds to meet the minimum level of margin that you are required to maintain in your account ("margin requirement"). You will provide to us from time to time on demand such sums by way of margin as we may in our discretion require for the  purpose  of  protecting  ourselves  against  loss  or  risk  of  loss  on  present,  future  or contemplated transactions under this agreement. Different margin requirements may apply to different accounts and/or investments traded. You may be required by us to supplement such margin at any time when your account shows a debit balance or an increase in your margin requirement. You will pay or transfer margin within the minimum period specified by us (which may be within the same day).
12.2 Margin in relation to a particular type of transaction will be provided in cash or in the form of such investments to which we in our absolute discretion agree. It is your responsibility to monitor at all times the amount of margin that may be required or desirable.
12.3 Unless the terms applying to a particular type of transaction otherwise specify, margin will be valued by us on such basis as we shall in our absolute discretion determine and may reflect,  without  limitation,  our  view  as  to  the  extent  that  the  relevant  assets  are  fully available to us or such discount to the current market value of any margin as reflects our perception of the market risk of that margin.
12.4 While failure to pay margin when required will entitle  us to close out some or all of your positions  and/or  call  an  event  of  default  we  are  under  no  obligation  to  close  out  any transactions  or  take any other  action  in  respect of  positions  opened or  acquired on  your instruction and in particular, no failure by you to pay margin when demanded will require us to close out any such transaction.
12.5 All cash margin and other payments due by you to us pursuant to this agreement shall be made in freely transferable funds in such currency and to such bank account(s) as we may from time to time specify. If you are by law required to make any deduction or withholding in respect of taxes or otherwise, then you will be liable to pay such amount to us as will result in our receiving a net amount equal to the full amount which would have been received had no such deduction or withholding been required.
12.6 Any sums due to us from you pursuant to this agreement may be deducted without prior notice to you from any account in order to realize proceeds which may be applied in the discharge of such sums.
12.7 Subject to this agreement, we will provide you with online access to your account to assist you in calculating the amount of margin required. This information shall be provided to you in the base currency.
12.8  You  acknowledge  and  accept  that  we  may  at  our  absolute  discretion  allow  you  time  to forward cleared funds to meet margin requirements. We shall be entitled but not obliged to make a request to you for any deposit or payment that you make or are required to make on your account under the terms of this agreement before exercising our rights to close out contracts. Notwithstanding the previous sentence we are obliged to close open accounts if a margin call is not met with five (5) business days. Nothing in this clause shall prohibit or restrict us from closing or restricting any transactions if there are insufficient funds to meet margin requirements.
12.9 You agree to contact us immediately if you believe that you are or will be unable to make any margin payments. Due to the serious nature of failing to make margin payments when due you are strongly recommended to regularly monitor your margin requirement.
12.10 You waive any obligation on us to receive a margin demand, call or notice from us and accept that it is entirely your responsibility to monitor the margin requirement and make all necessary margin payments by the due date.
12.11 You agree that any transactions we effect for you will be subject to the rules regulations, customs and practices of each relevant market, exchange, or clearing house on, through or with which we deal.

13. Closure of Accounts

13.1 We shall have the right (with or without demand) and without prejudice to our other rights under this agreement:

13.4  You  will  take  all  and  any  other  action  necessary  to  enable  us  to  effect  performance  of transactions as they fall due in accordance with the requirements of the relevant market, exchange, clearing house or intermediate broker.
13.5 If you do not give us notice of your intention to exercise an option together with any monies or property or documents required therewith by the time stipulated by us we may treat the option  as  abandoned  by  you  and  notify  you  accordingly.  We  will  give  you  reasonable advance  notice  of  the  time  for  exercise  of  such  option  and/or  any  arrangements  for automatic exercise. All options are settled in the base currency.
13.6  If  any  payment  instruction  documents  or  delivery  is  not  received  or  is  incomplete  or incorrect when received we may without notice close out or liquidate the transaction or buy in  on  the  market  or  make  or  receive  payment  or  delivery  in  order  to  meet  our  or  your performance  obligations  or  take  such  other  action  as  we  in  our  absolute  discretion  may consider appropriate.
13.7 Profits arising from the granting, closing out, liquidation, settlement or exercise of contracts or from similar transactions will be credited to your account.  Any  debit  balance  on  your account  or  arising  as  a  result  of  the  liquidation  of  your  account  will  be  payable  by  you forthwith whether or not demanded by us. If accounts are expressed in different currencies they shall be translated to United States dollars at the prevailing rate of exchange.
13.8 Any crediting to your account of cash investments or other assets is subject to reversal if, in accordance with local laws and practice, the delivery of investments or cash giving rise to the credit is reversed.
