Risk Disclosure

Trading in leveraged foreign exchange involves high risks as it allows you to take a larger position than you would otherwise be able to, based on your funds with CIMB Bank. As such, a relatively small negative or positive market movement can have a significant effect on your investment. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice in order to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the specified time, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account. Please note that the placing of certain orders (e.g. ‘stop-loss’ orders), which are intended to limit losses to certain amounts, may not be effective because market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. The profit or loss in transactions in foreign currency denomination will be affected by fluctuations in currency rates where there is a need to convert from the currency denomination of the contract to your account currency.


Trading on an electronic trading system may differ not only from trading in an open-outcry market, but also from trading on other electronic trading systems. If you undertake transactions on an electronic trading system, you will be exposed to risks associated with the system, including failure of hardware and software. The result of any system failure may be that your order is either not executed according to your instructions or not executed at all.


You should therefore carefully consider whether trading in leveraged products is appropriate for you in the light of your financial circumstances. You should be aware that dealing in products that are highly leveraged carries significantly greater risks than non-geared investments such as share trading. As such, you could both gain and lose large amounts of money. You may sustain losses in excess of the monies you initially deposit and also in excess of the margin required to establish and maintain any positions in leveraged products.
