The Undersigned (hereinafter the “Client”) requests from 4T Limited (hereinafter the
“Company”) to open one or several accounts and make available to him/her, securities services,
subject to the following terms and conditions which requires, among others, the signature of an
agreement between a financial institution and a client for purposes of conducting securities
dealer activities (the “Contract”), and the mandatory terms and conditions of any applicable
laws, regulations, or practices. In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of
such laws, regulations or practices and the provisions of this Contract, the provisions of this
Contract shall prevail except for provisions that are mandatory to the Company in such laws and
In this Contract, “we”, “us”, “our”, and “ours” means 4T Limited, a company established in
the Republic of Seychelles on the 15th of October 2019 with the registration number 8427038-1
and with a registered office at Olivier Maradan Building, P.O. Box 802, Mahe, Victoria,
Seychelles. 4T Limited is licensed by the Financial Services Authority, Seychelles as a
Securities Dealer with license number SD058. The words “his”, “him”, “he”, or “himself” refer to
the Client regardless of gender base.
These terms and conditions together with the Risk Warning Notice, the Client’s completed
Application Form, the Company’s Market Information (as amended from time to time) and any
additional terms and conditions issued by the Company, including those related to Credit
Accounts and any other documents that we may provide to the Client which are stated to form part
of the agreement between the Company and the Client, are collectively known as the Contract.
The Contract governs the Client’s relationship with the Company and all Transactions entered
into via any medium between the Client and the Company via a Platform. This includes any
Transaction made by an Authorized Third Party or any person giving the Client’s name, account
number and/or password.
The Client agrees to be legally bound by the Contract if he: (i) ticks the relevant tick box
on an Application Form, or (ii) sign an Application Form or (iii) trade on his account. For the
avoidance of doubt the Contract, as may be amended from time to time, applies to all the
Client’s accounts without any separate agreement or contract.
The Contract will be effective as between the Company and the Client on the day on which
the Company acknowledges acceptance of the Client’s application. If the Client is an individual
acting for purposes which are outside his business, trade or profession, he has a period of 14
calendar days from acceptance of this Contract to withdraw from this Contract without penalty
and without reason, provided that, if any Transaction is executed under the Contract during such
period, this right of withdrawal will not apply and the Contract will remain binding upon the
Client from the time at which the Transaction is entered into.
The Company will deal with the Client on an execution-only basis at all times. The Client
agrees that we are under no obligation to satisfy ourselves as the suitability of any
Transaction for the Client, to monitor or advise him on the status of any Transaction or to make
The Company will not provide the Client with any advice on the merits or suitability of him
entering into the Contract or any Transaction and will never provide him with any investment
advice although we may provide the Client with generic or factual information from time to time
on the nature, the terminology and of the procedures involved with such Transactions or
concerning factual financial data information. The Client acknowledges and agrees that he relies
on his own judgement when deciding whether or not to enter into any Transaction contemplated by
the Contract. If any of the Company’s staff members, any Trading Partner or other third party
appear to give advice, such advice is not given by the Company or on our behalf and the Company
assumes no responsibility whatsoever for any such advice.
We will enter all Transactions as principal and not as an agent for any other person. Unless
otherwise agreed with the Company, the Client will also enter into all Transactions as principal
and not as an agent for any other person.
The Client’s trading will not create any rights of ownership or otherwise in any Underlying
Market. We will not transfer any Underlying Market or any rights in it to the Client.
We provide Market Information on the Website (www.4T.com), which outlines the Markets that
we offer and various matters relating to the Contract. The Market Information will be updated
from time to time and the Client should read it thoroughly before entering any Transactions. If
there is any matter that the Client does not fully understand then he should seek clarification
from the Company before entering the Transaction.
Notwithstanding any other provision of the Contract, in providing the Company’s services,
the Company will be entitled to take any action as it considers necessary to ensure compliance
with Applicable Law. The Client agrees to strictly comply with all Applicable Law. If the
Company reasonably considers that the Client has not so complied, the Company may close the
Client’s account and terminate the Contract. The Client should be aware that the services the
Company offers, including trading in Contracts For Differences (CFDs), are regulated by the FSA,
and the applicable FSA laws and regulations that relate to the trading of financial markets also
relate to CFDs and other such products linked to underlying markets. The Client is especially
reminded that this applies to all forms of market abuse such as insider trading and to directors
trading in shares of their own companies.
2. Opening of Account
The client must open an account with the Company before the Company accepts any of the
Client’s Transactions. The Client must complete and submit to the Company a “Know Your Customer”
Form either electronically, or on the printable form available via the Website. All sections are
mandatory and must be filled out and any information supplied must be true and correct to the
best of the Client’s knowledge. Any incorrect or unclear information supplied may result in
either an outright rejection of the KYC Form or a delay in the opening of the account.
The Company is obligated by the Applicable Regulations to perform KYC and due diligence
procedures to verify the identity of each person who registers online via the Company's Website.
For this purpose, the Company will collect information about the Client such as name, surname,
address, telephone number, email, nationality, date of birth, source of income and other
When the Company receives the Client's completed online application form, it may use the
information to create a client profile and conduct any further enquiries about the Client as the
Company determines under the circumstances and its internal policies and procedures.
The Company also carries out additional checks or periodic reviews. The Client will need to
co-operate with the Company and supply the information requested promptly. The Company relies on
the information that is provided by the Client in the online application form or otherwise as
being correct and not misleading at all times, unless the Client notifies the Company otherwise
in writing. In particular, the Client must notify the Company as soon as possible in writing if
any of the details provided to the Company in the Client’s application form or if his
circumstances have subsequently changed. We may agree to accept such notification over the
telephone or by email. If the Client refuses to provide the information required, the Company
must not provide Securities business Services to the Client.
The Company is not to be required (and may be unable under Applicable Regulations) to accept
a person as its Client until all documentation it requires have been received by properly and
fully completed by such person and all internal checks (including without limitation all
anti-money laundering customer identification and due diligence checks) have been duly
The Company reserves the right to impose additional due diligence requirements to accept
Clients on a case-by-case basis and based on the initial information provided.
During the customer identification and due diligence checks the Company shall apply
processes to verify the Client's identity for which (amongst other things) photo identification
information will be required by the Client. In certain circumstances we may require this
information to be authenticated by an appropriate third party. The Company requires as minimum a
government issued Photo identity documents such as a passport, driving license and/or identity
card containing the Client’s full name, personal photo, and date of birth, ID number and expiry
date as well as evidence of his residential address not older than three (3) months, such as a
utility bill or bank statement, for the verification process. The information in these documents
should agree with the details submitted in Client's application.
The Company will assess the information received by the Client during the Account Opening
Procedure to determine whether the Client is eligible or not in investing and/or operating a
trading account with the Company. The Client's trading account will be opened following the
assessment and completion of the KYC and due diligence procedure
The Client acknowledges that the Company shall have the right to take any measures it deems
appropriate should it consider that such information is inaccurate or no longer applicable. The
Client certifies that the investment profile figures and other figures, if any, mentioned in his
application are indicative and the Company is not requested to undertake any action should these
figures not have been or be abided by.
The Client understands and acknowledges that by submitting the above-mentioned KYC Form he
is not considered approved and, thus, not holding an active account with the Company yet.
The KYC Form is the registration stage, following which The Client shall complete the
Personal Identification and Address Verification Process and become approved by the Company to
be activated for trading (“pending for approval” status).
During the Verification Process, the Client shall provide the Company with his Personal
Identification and Address Verification documents as stipulated in his account or by a notice
from the Company sent to him. The Client will be able to log in and upload his documents
directly into his account.
According to the Company’s internal policies, the Client will not be able to trade before
Personal Verification and Address Verification is completed.
In exceptional cases, the Company may allow the Client to deposit funds and/or trade during
the Verification process (e.g. the Client submitted only part of the required documents and he
is not ranked as highly risk client according to the Company’s internal risk management
policies), however this is under the Company’s full discretion to decide and the Client shall
have no right of claim or whatsoever to use such exception on his account. (For more details
about AML and on-boarding procedures the Client can request it from the Company.)
The Client understands and acknowledges that in case he is allowed to deposit and/or trade
before the Verification process is completed, and he does not provide further documents or
respond to the Company’s notifications in order to complete the Identity Verification process,
within 30 calendar days from the first day of depositing the funds, then we reserve the right to
close his open trades (as per the terms of this Contract) and deactivate his account, until we
either complete the process or terminate the business relationship with him.
The Client understands and acknowledges that while his account is on “pending for approval”
status, in certain circumstances he might be able to proceed with the deposit in his account
however he will not be able to trade unless he has completed the Personal Identification and
Address Verification process, or we have approved his profile to fall within the above discussed
exception. In such case he will not be able to withdraw his funds until the Personal
Identification and Address Verification are completed.
We reserve the right to limit the Client’s use of any Platform and apply pre-execution
trading controls as may be appropriate to preserve compliance with Applicable Law or any other
trading limits which may be notified to the Client, or if we reasonably believe that the Client
are or may be subject to a Default Event. In the absence of willful misconduct or fraud by the
Company we will not be liable to the Client for any loss, claim, demand, or expense incurred to
the Client in connection with the Company exercising these rights.
It is the Client’s (or the Client’s employer’s) responsibility to inform the Company as to
whether information concerning the Client’s Transactions should be reported to the Client’s
employer, including its compliance officer, and as to whether Confirmations and statements of
the Client’s account should be sent to that compliance officer or to any other person authorized
by the Client’s employer to receive such information. The Company will obtain the Client’s
consent prior to providing any such information to his employer.
To access the Client’s account, the Client will be prompted his username or account number and
The Client’s username, password, and account number are extremely sensitive pieces of
information. Any Transaction made on the Client’s account using either his username, account
number, or his password will be deemed as an instruction authorized by the Client, as a valid
Transaction and binding on the Client.
The Client must immediately inform the Company if he is aware or suspects that a third
party has had access to his username, account number, or password or that any person other than
the Client (or the Client’s Authorized Third Party) is dealing on the Client’s account.
The Client must not disclose his username, account number, or password to any third person
outside the Company’s dealing, trading, or customer support desk. If the Client discloses his
username, password and/or account number with a third party and such person deals on the
Client’s account, or if the Company has reason to suspect that such circumstances apply or have
applied, it will constitute a breach of the Contract and the Company may:
i. enforce any relevant Transaction against the Client if it is a Transaction under
which he has incurred a loss; or
ii. treat any relevant Transaction as void if it is a Transaction under which the Client
has secured a profit (and retain any such profit for the Company’s own account, subject
to Applicable Law), unless and until the Client produces conclusive evidence within 3
months of the Transaction being closed that such circumstances do not exist.
If the Client deposits money to his account or make Transactions in a currency other than his
Base Currency, then:
i. the Client may realize a profit or loss in that currency, which may result in him
having multiple balances in different currencies;
ii. the realized profits or losses from each relevant Transaction may be converted by
the Company to the Client’s Base Currency and posted to his account in the Base
iii. the Company may convert any relevant adjustments or charges to the Client’s Base
Currency before such adjustments/charges are booked on the Client’s account;
iv. the Company may convert any money received from the Client in a non-Base Currency
into the Base Currency; and
v. any currency conversion will be made at a rate of exchange reasonably determined by
the Company and the Company will not be liable to the Client for any exchange rate loss
suffered by him as a result of any such currency conversion.
3. Joint Account
All duties, liabilities and obligations of each Client towards the Company shall be joint and
bind each Client.
The Company may take Instructions and confirmations of transactions and of statements of
Accounts from any one of the Clients, unless otherwise notified in writing by any one of the
Clients, in which case the Company reserves the right to either refuse to take subsequent
Instructions or to request that Instructions and operation of the Account be, until further
joint notice, made by all Clients jointly and in writing only. Accordingly, where any
Instructions, acknowledgments or confirmations are to be given by joint Clients, it shall be
sufficient if such is given on behalf of the Clients by one of the Clients only and the Company
may rely on such Instructions, acknowledgments, or confirmations as if the same were given by
each of the joint Clients. In case of conflicting Instructions, demands, notices, or requests
the Company shall have the right not to execute such conflicting Instructions, demands, notices
or requests until agreement of all Clients.
Unless otherwise notified in writing by any one of the Clients as per the above, each of
the Joint Account holders is solely entitled, and with no need for authorization from the other
co-holders, to operate, utilize and dispose of part or all of the Account including, without
limitation, closing the Account and converting its currency and conducting on it all types of
transactions compatible with its nature and this Contract.
In all cases and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Contract, and
notwithstanding any instruction to the contrary made by any Client, the Company may give
confirmations, margin calls, statements or other information or correspondence about the Account
to any one of the Clients, in which case the Company will be considered to have given it to all
In the event of litigation between the co-holders regarding the Account, the Company shall
have the right to block the Account from the date of its notification of the said litigation
until an enforceable judgment is rendered and this without prejudice to the Company’s other
rights and remedies regarding any liabilities or indebtedness due to the Company.
The Joint Account cannot be utilized by an appointed representative unless his appointment
was approved by all the co-holders and such appointment refers to the Joint Account and
explicitly specifies the powers of such representative.
If one of the Joint Account holders dies, the Company shall have the right either to apply
the provisions of section “Acceleration and Enforcement” of this Contract or to continue dealing
with the surviving Account holder(s).
If the Company chooses to apply the provisions of section “Acceleration and Enforcement” of
this Contract and after such application the Account shows a credit balance, all Assets and
property in the Account shall be split and distributed among the surviving Account holders and
the heirs of the deceased Account holder in accordance with the certificate of inheritance for
the heirs (e.g. in the case of 3 Account holders the credit balance will be split into 3
portions, one for each surviving Account holder and the third for the heirs). If, after
application of section “Acceleration and Enforcement” of this Contract, the Account shows a
debit balance all surviving Account holders and heirs of the deceased Account holder will be
jointly and severally liable to repay the Company the indebtedness.
If the Company chooses to continue dealing with the surviving Account holder(s), then the
Company will split the Account between the surviving Account holder(s) and the heirs of the
deceased Account holder. In such case, the Company will apply the provisions of section
“Acceleration and Enforcement” of this Contract to the portion of the heirs of the deceased
Account holder and if after such application the portion of the heirs shows a credit balance
such balance will be distributed among their heirs in accordance with the certificate of
inheritance, and if it shows a debit balance in favor of the Company they will be liable jointly
and severally with the surviving Account holders to repay the Company the indebtedness.
If the Company chooses to continue dealing with the surviving Account holder(s), then the
Company will require him/them to sign new Account documentation and to open a new Account with a
new ID number.
4. Closing of Account
Either party can terminate this Contract by giving seven (7) business days' written notice
to the other party. Following the notice, the Client should close all open positions. In the
case where the Client has open positions during the termination notice period, then the Company
reserves the right not to accept any new Transaction orders and the Company shall have the right
to close all of the Client's open positions on expiry of the notice period to the extent the
Client has not already done so. Upon termination of this Contract, the Company shall be entitled
to cease the access of the Client to the Trading Platform.
The Company is entitled to close all open positions and terminate this Contract immediately
without giving prior written notice in the following cases:
i. The Client fails to comply with any obligation to make any payment when due under
ii. There are reasonable grounds to believe that the Client is in breach of this
iii. The Client activity might be a violation of any Applicable Regulation, market or
iv. The Client dies, becomes, or is adjudged to be of unsound mind, or is incapacitated,
or becomes unable to pay his debts as they fall due, or becomes bankrupt, or insolvent
within the meaning of any insolvency law or any suit, action, or proceeding is commenced
for any execution of all or any part of the property, undertaking or assets of the
v. The Client commences a voluntary case or other procedure, or there is an involuntary
case or other procedure or other similar procedure under any insolvency law.
The Company may terminate this Contract immediately without giving prior written notice,
and the Company has the right to reverse and/or cancel all previous Transactions on a Client's
account, in the following cases:
i. The Client involves the Company directly or indirectly in any type of fraud, in which
it places the interests of Company and/or the Company's clients at risk prior to
terminating this Contract.
ii. The Client's trading activity adversely affects in any manner the reliability and/or
smooth operation and/or orderly functioning of the Trading Platform.
Following termination, the Company and the Client undertake to fulfil and complete all
obligations derived from this Contract and this Contract shall continue to bind both parties in
regard to the existing commitments or any contractual commitments which were intended to remain
in force. The Company is entitled to deduct all amounts due to it before transferring any credit
balances on any Account to the Client. If there are no amounts due to the Company by the Client,
the Company shall immediately transfer to the Client the Client's funds in its possession,
providing that the Company shall be entitled to keep such Client's assets as necessary, to pay
any actual, pending, or contingent obligations or liabilities of the Client.
If either party terminates the Contract and/or closes the Client’s account, all open
Transactions will be closed at the relevant time at the current Company’s Quote or, in the case
where any market is closed for any reason, at the next available Company’s Quote on the
reopening of such market and no new Transactions will be accepted by the Company. All Orders
will be cancelled, and no new Orders will be accepted by the Company. All debit balances will be
immediately due and must be paid in full; and all credit sums will be paid to the Client prior
to the closure of the account.
No penalty will be payable by either party on termination of the Contract and termination
will not affect any accrued rights. On termination by either party, the Company may consolidate
all or any of the Client’s accounts and may deduct all amounts due to the Company before
transferring to the Client any credit balance on the Client’s account.

The trading account can be re-activated by submitting the below given documents and forms:
• A completed reactivation form to the account.

• The updated mobile number, e-mail ID, and bank details to be mentioned.

The Company is required to comply with the non-U.S. account provisions of United States law
that are generally known as “FATCA”, the objective of which is to combat tax evasion by U.S.
persons who invest directly in offshore accounts or indirectly through ownership of foreign
In compliance with the reporting requirements imposed under FATCA, as may be amended from
time to time, and any other applicable reporting requirements imposed on the Company, from time
to time, the Client, if and when it becomes subject to FATCA, undertakes to disclose to the
Company, upon its first request, any information and/or provide any documentation that may be
required under any U.S. (including FATCA) or Seychelles law from time to time in order to
confirm its U.S. status, and to promptly update such information as and when it becomes untrue
or as and when requested by the Company, and hereby expressly and irrevocably waives the
provisions of the banking secrecy law on its Account(s) and allows and authorizes the Company to
disclose to the U.S. Treasury or any other U.S. fiscal authority any and all information they
demand related to its bank account(s), from time to time.
The Client irrevocably and expressly authorizes the Company to deduct from its Account(s)
balance(s) to make necessary withholdings for as long as the Account(s) is/are deemed
non-compliant with FATCA and releases the Company of any liability resulting from the
information supplied and withholding on payments to the Account(s) and confirms that the Company
is not liable for any consequences arising directly or indirectly from any disclosure or
withholding related to the foregoing.
7. Margin Provisions
To guarantee the performance of the clients’ obligations to the Company, the Client must
ensure, before placing any orders, that his Account contains the minimum margin, in equity, as
requested by the Company in line with its margin requirements.
To open and maintain a Transaction, the Client will need sufficient free margin to cover the
relevant margin requirement. The Company will determine the relevant margin requirement at its
sole discretion, and it will be set on an individual product basis.
To open and maintain a Transaction, the Client will need sufficient free margin to cover the
relevant margin requirement. The Company will determine the relevant margin requirement at its
sole discretion, and it will be set on an individual product basis.
The Client will provide the Company with such margin, and additional margin on request, and
in form and amount as determined by the Company. These margin demands are possible during the
conclusion of a transaction and during the course of a transaction.
The amount of original or initial margin required for any transaction may be subjected to
change from time to time, normally depending upon price volatility and the total value of the
All margin calls must be met by the Client promptly and in full; otherwise, the Client runs
the risk of liquidation of his open position, and possibly a loss.
The Client irrevocably authorizes the Company, without obligation, to debit any of his
Accounts for the required margin for any positions opened.
Granting a Credit Facility to the Client is subject to approval by the Company in accordance
with its internal rules and practices. The Company is not bound to justify its acceptance or
refusal and may modify or revoke such acceptance at any time and at its sole and absolute
discretion. If a Margin Facility is granted to the Client, it shall be subject to the provisions
of this Contract.
All monies owed to the Company for the Credit Facility are repayable on demand.
The Client irrevocably agrees that he must ensure that the Margin Coverage is at all times
maintained at the levels requested by the Company in accordance with its usual practice. The
Company may make, by any communication means, margin calls to the Client or his
representative(s) requesting additional Margin Coverage or the restoration of the Margin
Coverage either by reduction of positions or by providing additional equity, and the Client
shall be obliged to do so promptly.
If the Margin Level Percentage, whether through a change in the margin requirement, erosion
by the impact of adverse market movements or otherwise, becomes:
i. Less than 100 per cent., the Company may at any time close all or any of the Client’s
open Transactions (in whole or in part); and
ii. Less than 50 per cent., the Company will close all or any of the Client’s open
Transactions (in whole or in part).
In each case in markets that are available for trading and without notice.
8. Order Types
An Order is an offer to open or close a Transaction if the Company’s price moves to or
beyond a level the Client specifies. The basic Order types available are:
i. Instant Orders (Trades);
ii. Market Orders (Trades);
iii. Stop Orders or Limit Orders;
Instant Orders are an immediate instruction to buy or sell at the Company’s Quoted price.
A Market Order is an instruction to deal in a specified size at the best available price
for that size. By placing a Market Order, the Client acknowledges that the order might be
executed at a price that is worse than the Company’s Quote at the time the Client places his
A Stop Order is an instruction to deal if the Company’s Quoted price becomes less favorable
to the Client. A Stop Order is generally placed to provide some risk protection, for example in
the event of the Client’s Transaction moving into loss and can be used to either open or close a
Transaction. Each Stop Order has a specific stop level, set by the Client, subject to his
acceptance. A Stop Order will be triggered if the Company’s bid or offer price (as appropriate)
moves against the Client to a point that is at or beyond the level specified by the Client. Once
a Stop Order is triggered, the Company will open or close (as appropriate) a Transaction at a
level that is the same or worse than the Client’s stop level.
A Limit Order is an instruction to deal if the Company’s Quoted price becomes more favorable
to the Client. A Limit Order can be used to either open or close a Transaction. Each Limit Order
has a specified limit level, set by the Client, subject to our acceptance. A Limit Order will be
triggered if our bid or offer price (as appropriate) moves in the Client’s favor to a point that
is at or beyond his specified limit level. Once a Limit Order is triggered the Company will seek
to open or close a Transaction at a level that is the same or better than the Client’s limit.
The Client may request that an Order is “Until Cancelled” or “Until Date”:
i. “Until Cancelled” means that the Order will remain in effect until cancelled by the
Client or until the last trading day (not the Expiry Date) of the relevant market.
ii. “Until Date” means that the Order will remain in effect until the time and date
requested when placing the Order or until the Company ceases to quote the relevant
market (whichever is the sooner).
An “Until Cancelled” Order will only be valid during 4T Limited Quoting Hours for the market
concerned. If there is any form of gap between the close of the market as quoted by the Company
on one trading session and its subsequent reopening either on the next session or, in the case
of a Force Majeure Event, whenever the Company reopens the relevant market, the Client’s Order
will be executed at 4T Limited Quote based upon the first price that the Company is reasonably
able to obtain in the Underlying Market.
Any Stop Orders or Limit Orders on open Transactions will:
i. remain in effect until such time as the relevant Transaction is closed, and will
function in the same manner as an ‘Until Cancelled’ Order;
ii. be deemed to be in respect of the Company’s Quote; and
iii. be valid solely in respect of the Market in which the Company accepted the Order
and not for any other.
9. Placing Orders
The Company quotes a two-way price in a size acceptable to the Company involving a spread
between the Buy and the Sell price. The Client may buy at the higher price or sell at the lower
price, in each case in accordance with the terms of this Contract.
Unless otherwise agreed, any prices shown via any platform are indicative at the time shown
and based on data which is subject to constant change. The execution price is that price which
is confirmed to the Client at the time of execution.
The Client understands that he may only make a transaction with the Company during the
Company’s Quoting Hours for the Market in question and within the permissible Size(s) (unless
otherwise agreed by the Company). The minimum and maximum sizes are set by the Company by
reference to the normal market Size for which prices are available on any relevant exchange or
market and which offer live price information. The current minimum and maximum sizes are
available from the Company on request. The Company is entitled to vary these size limits and it
is the Client’s responsibility to ensure that he knows what the current size limits are before
making any Transactions. The Company also has the right to waive any Transaction Size limits
with or without notice to the Client.
The Client understands that Instructions may only be executed on days on which the Company
and the appropriate markets for dealing with the transactions are open for business. No Orders
of any kind in any Market will be executed outside of the Company’s Quoting Hours for that
Market except by agreement with the Company.
Upon the opening of any Market quoted by the Company any currently executable Order will be
filled at the Company’s first Quote for the relevant Market that the Company is reasonably able
to obtain with reference to the Underlying Market and the size of the particular Order.
In respect of Markets quoted by the Company outside the trading Hours of the relevant
Underlying Market, all Orders are based on the Company’s Quote and may be filled at the
Company’s Quote based on a price which is in our opinion fair and reasonable in light of
prevailing world Markets at that time.
An Order can only be placed based on a current valid Quote and the Client may only request
for an Order to be executed on the prices currently quoted on a Platform. Due to the nature of
online trading systems and the potential unreliability of market price feeds, the Company may
remove or delete Orders which in our opinion do not reflect the Underlying Market prices at the
time of the placement of the relevant Order. The Company will not be responsible for losses or
potential losses sustained by the Client on a rejected or cancelled Order. The Company is not
responsible or liable for losses made with other companies on Transactions undertaken in
connection with a rejected or cancelled Order.
Purchase or sales Instructions or other transactions or operations instructed by the Client
may not be modified or revoked by the Client unless the modification or revocation occurs before
the Company starts the execution of the Instruction. In the event the execution is under way,
the modification or revocation if possible, shall only concern the part of the Instruction which
is still not executed.
It is the Client’s responsibility to cancel any Order they no longer require. Any
un-cancelled Order placed by the Client may be filled by the Company and may therefore cause
losses for which the Client will be liable. In the case of Stop Loss Orders, if the related
Transaction is closed the Stop Loss Order will be deemed automatically cancelled. If the
associated Stop Loss Order on any open Transaction was actionable before the Client closed the
open Transaction, the Company may adjust the closing price of the Client’s Transaction to
reflect that Stop Level.
An Order that has been accepted by the Company will be executed when the Company’s Quote
reaches the price specified in the Client’s Order or as near as possible if the market moves
through his specified level. All Quotes are based upon an Underlying Market that is sourced from
either a recognized global exchange or from a wholesale counterparty (a quoting bank or market
maker). The Company’s Quote may be higher or lower than the Underlying Market due to interest
rate costs, scrip issues, stock splits, competitors’ quotes, or the volume of client business.
The understanding of the definition of “Our Quote” is very important for the correct operation
of the Client’s account. If the Client does not understand any part of its description, he
should contact the Company for an explanation.
The Company is not obliged to inform the Client if an Order is filled. It is solely the
Client’s responsibility to ensure that he always knows as to whether any Order has been filled
or is still active; if the Client is in any doubt whatsoever as to the situation, it is his sole
responsibility to contact the Company immediately, in the first instance by telephone, in order
to obtain clarification as to the validity of any Transaction.
Where a series of Orders may be filled to close existing open Transactions and/or open new
Transactions then these Orders will be filled by the Company in any sequence determined by the
Company. If this results in subsequent Orders having insufficient Trading Resources for
activation, then these Orders will be cancelled. The Company will not look at Order filling
sequences that may result in one Order being filled and another failing, the Company will fill
Orders as and when they are seen by the Company’s dealers and at our sole discretion.

When dealing over the telephone, the Client must give his name and account number or
username. Without this information, the Order may not be accepted even if it is to close an
existing open Transaction. When dealing over the telephone the Order will only be accepted by
the Company when the dealer confirms that the Client’s Order has been accepted. The verbal
acceptance of an Order by one of the Company’s dealers does not negate either the Company’s or
the Client’s rights in the event of a Pricing Error.
A Quote made over the telephone is only valid at that moment in time and may not be
available on any subsequent telephone call, or throughout the initial telephone call. Quotes
that have been given as “indication only” are not valid and Orders cannot be executed on them
unless otherwise agreed by the Company. Quotes that have been qualified or Quotes that the
Client have been told are no longer valid before the Client places an Order are also not

11. Gapping and Slippage
All Orders are subjected to Gapping and Slippage.
Where Gapping or Slippage occurs, an Order may not be executed at the requested Order
price level but at the nearest price practicably achievable by the Company. In any case, the
Order will be executed in accordance with the Company’s Order Execution Policy. The Client
should note the potential impact of Gapping and Slippage on any Order that he has on his
Gapping and Slippage are particularly likely when, or near when, a market or trading
session opens or closes. Where Gapping occurs in a market during trading hours, any Buy Order
below the market or Sell Order above the market will always be filled at the requested price but
Sell Orders below the market or Buy Orders above the market may be subject to Slippage. This is
in line with general exchange rules as stated in the Company’s Order Execution Policy.
If a new Order is subject to Gapping and/or Slippage, any associated Stop Loss Orders or
Limit Orders will be set at the specified level or number of points away from the level at which
the Order was executed.
The Company is not obliged to accept any instruction, howsoever given. However, when an
instruction is given by the Client, it shall be irrevocable without the Company’s consent. Once
the Company accepts an Order, the resulting Transaction will be binding on the Client,
notwithstanding that by opening such Transaction, the Client may not have sufficient margin in
his account or may have exceeded any credit or other limit applicable to him. The Company will
be under no obligation to take any steps to reverse or cancel the Order unless required by law.
The Company may refuse to implement the Instructions of the Client relating to adding new
positions at its sole and absolute discretion and without the need to justify its decision.
The Company may refuse to implement the Instructions of the Client if they are not clear
or ambiguous or if the Company or its correspondents consider, at their sole and absolute
discretion, that they are not in compliance with the laws or regulations of the place where the
Instructions must be executed, or whenever the Company deems necessary for its protection.
The Client can only issue trading and execution instruction via executing trades and
orders via the trading platforms (e.g., desktop, mobile and tablet application, web browser,
Internet) or verbally by telephone instruction only while contacting the Company’s trading or
Transactions will be confirmed via an on-screen Confirmation. The contract is binding on
both parties except for instances of a Pricing Error.
An email or on-screen Confirmation that does not accurately reflect the relevant
Underlying Market price at the time of the Transaction cannot be enforced by the Company or the
Any Transaction made by the Client is considered Over the Counter (“OTC”) and therefore
enters in a direct contract with the Company in respect of his Transaction.
If multiple Clients are placing identical Transactions, then the Company may treat this as
one Transaction. Therefore, if the combined Size is greater than the liquidity of the Underlying
Market and Slippage occurs, all Clients may be treated the same regardless of their individual
Transaction Size and filled at the same level which will be where the Company was realistically
able to place a Transaction in the Underlying Market plus the relevant spread.
13. Closing Transactions
Transactions may be closed at any time within the Company’s Quoting Hours (except where the
relevant market is suspended or not available for whatever reason) unless the Company notifies
the Client otherwise. The Company may, at its own consent, accept closure of open Transactions
outside the Company’s Quoting Hours dependent upon the market but are not obliged to do so.
The Client must specifically close an open Transaction; opening an opposing Transaction
will not automatically close, wholly or in part, an existing Transaction.
The Client is not required to close a Transaction prior to the Expiry Date provided that
his account is not in deficit. However, in certain circumstances and in accordance with the
Contract, the Company will be entitled or may be required to close the Client’s Transaction
prior to the Expiry Date notwithstanding that his account is not in deficit.
Unless market conditions dictate otherwise, all Transactions still opened on their Expiry
Date will be automatically settled at the relevant price as outlined in the Market Information.
If the Expiry Date of a Transaction is not a recognized business day of the relevant
Underlying Market, then the business day immediately preceding that stated will be considered as
the Expiry Date unless an alternative is specifically stated in the Market Information or the
Company notifies the Client otherwise.
Open Transactions will automatically close on their Expiry Date (as are detailed in the
Market Information) and any subsequent closing of any such Transaction by the Client (whether or
not accepted in error by the Company) will be void.
On the Expiry Date of a Transaction with a specific expiry date, the settlement price will
be based on the closing Bid or Offer price of the Underlying Market plus or minus the Company’s
spread on that Transaction, depending on the Client’s Transaction (if the Client has a Long
Transaction the settlement price will be the Bid of the product in the Underlying Market at the
Expiry Date minus the spread and if the Client has a Short Transaction the settlement price will
be the Offer of the product in the Underlying Market at the Expiry Date plus the spread).
On the Expiry Date of a Transaction with a specific expiry date during a period of low
liquidity in the Underlying Market, the Company may settle the Transaction at the price achieved
by removing the Company’s hedge on the relevant Transaction during the course of the final
business day of the relevant Expiry Date, plus or minus the Company’s relevant spread, or at the
closing Bid/Offer price in the relevant Underlying Market plus or minus the Company’s relevant
In certain Underlying Market conditions, it may not be possible to close a single
Transaction with sizable market consideration in full at one price. Such a Transaction may
instead be closed at a price reflecting the price at which the Company is able to transact any
relevant underlying hedge but only during the trading hours of the Underlying Market (whether or
not the relevant Transaction was opened during or outside the Underlying Market trading hours).
The Company will treat all Transactions as a Buy or a Sell without reference to whether
such actions open a new Transaction and/or close (or part close) an existing one. Any statement
made by the Client with reference to any Transaction closing or opening a Transaction is not
binding on the Company. It is the Client’s responsibility to ensure that any action made by him
leads to the closing or opening of a Transaction.
14. Correspondences, Transmission of Instructions, and Notices
The Client acknowledges that the Internet particularly and the electronic Services
generally are inherently insecure and that all data transfer, including electronic mail, occur
openly and can potentially be monitored by others. The Client hereby confirms to the Company
that they are aware of the risks of the use of such communication means and that they shall be
solely and fully responsible in respect thereof.
The Company shall not be held liable for any loss or damage incurred due to alteration,
delay, loss, mistake, misunderstanding, or any cause which may result from the use of email,
fax, the postal service or any other communication means, or from the breakdown or failure of
communication or transmission facilities, or any other cause that is not directly due to the
Company’s willful misconduct or gross negligence.
The Client can only issue Transaction Orders via the trading platforms (e.g., desktop,
mobile and tablet application, web browser) or verbally by contacting the trading desk to
instruct by telephone.
Any notices, conversations, and communications sent to the Client via email and unless the
Company receives a “failure to deliver” message will be deemed to have been received. Any
alteration of the Client’s email address must be communicated immediately to the Company.
All notices, conversations and communications between the Client and the Company are
recorded, and the Client hereby agrees to the recording of such conversations. All such records
and recordings are the Company’s exclusive property and may be used as evidence in any dispute.
The Client may be provided with a copy of any such recording upon his request to the Company,
during the 5 years period from the date of such conversations and communications are being
recorded. The Client understands and agrees that any of these recording materials shall be made
available by the Company to the competent authorities when requested for the period of 7 years
after the date of creation of the recording.
The Company will not be liable for any losses, damages, or costs incurred by the Client
through non-receipt of notifications or Confirmations (in the case of Transactions or Orders
placed), including where such loss, damage or cost is a result of the Client’s inability to
close a trade. The Company accepts no responsibility for non-receipt by the Client of any such
notifications or Confirmations.
Any request made by the Company for the client, for whatever reason, should be regarded as
vital and should be acted upon immediately. Time will be of the essence for all such requests.
Where the Company is not notified that any notice or other communication has not been
received by the Client, that notice or communication will be deemed to have been duly served on
i. if hand delivered to the Client’s last known home or work address, or when actually
given in person to the Client;
ii. if given orally over the telephone or in a face-to-face exchange with the Client (or
person claiming to the Company’s representative); if given by leaving a telephone
answering machine message, text message or voice mail message, two hours after the
message being left on the relevant medium;
iii. if sent by first class post two business days after posting of same;
iv. if sent by fax, on completion of its transmission, provided that a transmission
"successful" notification has been received by the Company; or
v. 10 seconds after being sent by email.
Any notice or other communication given or made under or in connection with the matters
contemplated by the Contract will, except where oral communication is expressly provided for, be
in writing and will be sent to the address below:
Olivier Maradan Building, 1st Floor, P.O. Box 802, Mahe, Victoria, Seychelles
The Client acknowledges and agrees that all communication transmitted by him or on his
behalf is made at his risk and that he authorizes the Company to rely, and act on, and treat as
fully authorized and binding upon the Client. Any communication (whether or not in writing) that
the Company reasonably believes to have been made or transmitted by the Client or on his behalf
by any agent or intermediary whom the Company reasonably believes to have been duly authorized
by the Client.
Subject to Applicable Law, any communications between the Company using electronic
signatures will be binding to the same extent as if they were in writing. By agreeing to the
Contract, the Client gives his consent to the receipt of communications by electronic means,
notwithstanding that certain communications would otherwise be required to be made using a
durable medium under Applicable Law.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, orders placed or other instructions
given by electronic means will constitute evidence of such orders or instructions. If the Client
no longer wishes to communicate in this way, the Client must revoke his consent in writing. The
Client consents to receiving documents and information regarding his account and the Company’s
products and services in electronic form, including by email and via the Website.
The Company is authorized to issue and transmit margin calls to the Client or to the
Client’s representative(s) by any means of communication.
15. Confirmations and Statements
Upon entering into any Transaction or Order or upon closure of any Transaction or amendment
of an Order or any cancellation of an Order, the Company’s Confirmations will be displayed on
Any material action affecting the Client’s account will trigger an on-screen Confirmation.
The absence of an on-screen Confirmation of an action on his account will not affect the
validity of any Transaction or Order which has been placed.
It is solely the Client’s responsibility to ensure that he is fully up to date in respect
of all Transactions and Orders on his account. As soon as the Client receives any Confirmation,
he must check it to make certain that it is correct and notify the Company promptly of any
error. If the Client notifies the Company of such an error, the Company will promptly
investigate, resolve and, if necessary, rectify it.
If the Client receives a Confirmation for a Transaction or filled Order that he alleges
has not been transacted by or for him, he must notify the Company immediately. If the Client
does not receive a Confirmation for a Transaction he has placed (or believe he has placed) he
must notify the Company immediately.
The Client must regularly check his online statement. The Client is solely responsible for
ensuring that he fully understands the fundamental aspects of trading and the markets in which
The Client’s account statement will be available online at any time unless the Company has
suspended the Client’s account, or the Company’s Platforms are unavailable for any reason. The
Client can also request an account statement from the Company at any time.
16. Equity Based Stop Out
The Equity Based Stop Out facility is placed to try to protect the Client from incurring an
uncontrolled deficit on his account and as it can result in the closure of open Transactions (in
whole or in part) the Company strongly recommends that the Client strictly monitors his Trading
Resources and margin levels, which vary in line with market movement.
If the Client wishes to prevent a Transaction from being closed, as the Equity Based Stop
Out level is approaching due to adverse market movement, then more funds should be deposited.
The Company does not make Margin Calls and will not be liable for failing to contact the
Client or failing to attempt to contact him.
It is solely the Client’s responsibility to monitor the position on his account, including
the prevailing valuations of his open Transactions and margin requirements.
Equity Based Stop Out will close Transactions (in whole or in part) on markets available
for trading only, and in the event of the deficiency remaining open Transactions may be closed
(in whole or in part) the moment that the relevant market becomes available for trading.
Equity Based Stop Out will not trigger the closure of open Transactions on markets that are
marked as indicative or unavailable; until the market reverts from indicative to cleared, at
which point in the event of a deficiency any remaining open Transactions may be closed (in whole
or in part).
As per clause 7.11, the equity based stop out will occur under such circumstances;
If the Margin Level Percentage, whether through a change in the margin requirement, erosion by
the impact of adverse market movements or otherwise, becomes:
i. Less than 100 per cent., the Company may at any time close all or any of the
Client’s open Transactions (in whole or in part); and
ii. Less than 50 per cent., the Company will close all or any of the Client’s open
Transactions (in whole or in part)
In each case in markets that are available for trading and without notice.
In respect of dividends, an adjustment to the Client’s account will be made with reference
to any dividend or distribution attributable to any relevant equity on which a Transaction is
based and will be made and calculated as follows:
i. where the Client’s Transaction would result in a credit to his account, for example a
Buy Transaction in an equity which goes ex-dividend, the Company will adjust the Account
Balance in the Client’s favor by the gross dividend amount multiplied by the Transaction
Size (an adjustment may be applied to any payment to factor in for example, but not
limited to, tax, Transaction process charges, etc.); or
ii. where the Client’s Transaction would result in a debit to his account, for example a
Sell Transaction in an equity which goes ex-dividend, the Company will adjust the
Account Balance in the Company’s favor by the gross dividend multiplied by the
Transaction Size (an adjustment may be applied to any payment to factor in for example,
but not limited to, tax, Transaction process charges, etc.)
The above provisions will apply in respect of any constituent equity of an equities basket
or equities index and are also subject to any such adjustment being scaled back in proportion to
the respective weighting of the affected equity within the equities basket or equities index as
the Company’s reasonably consider appropriate.
In the event of any scrip dividend or rights issue (or any dilution or concentration of
equity capital or any special dividend or return of equity capital) or cancellation of dividend
in any equities or indices on which a Transaction is already open, the Company may adjust every
opening Transaction price or Size taken in that Market (or to adjust the Client’s Account
Balance) to fairly reflect the impact of the same.
18. Overnight Financing and Rolling
CFD contracts are available in a variety of Markets. Each Market has its own conditions and
spread which may vary at the Company’s discretion. Such contracts automatically roll into the
next trading session. An Overnight Financing debit/credit will be made to the Client’s account
if he holds a Transaction open from one trading session to the next.
Transactions without specific Expiry Dates will remain open as long as the Client has funds
available to support the margin requirements for each Order. Therefore, the Client must mark
sufficient level of the Margin in the Account or else would risk position closure.
CFD Transaction normally has no Expiry Date or an Expiry Date that is many years in the
future, but may be closed by the Company in the case of a Force Majeure Event or, where the
Overnight Financing or anything else has resulted in deficit Trading Resources on the account.
When Transactions are closed by the Company, the price will be at the full spread quoted by us
at that time or at a price that in the Company’s opinion fairly reflects the price at that time.
Where Overnight Financing is applied to open Transactions, the debit/credit to the account
is made on each occasion that they are kept open from one trading session to the next, including
19. Market and Exchange Data
With respect to any market and exchange data or other information that the Company or any
third-party service provides to the Client in connection with his use of the Client’s account,
the Client agrees that:
i. neither the Company nor the Company’s Trading Partners nor any such provider are
responsible or liable if any such data or information is inaccurate or incomplete in any
ii. neither the Company nor the Company’s Trading Partners nor any such provider are
responsible or liable for any actions that the Client takes or does not take based on
such data or information;
iii. the Client will use such data or information solely for the purposes set out in the
iv. such data or information is proprietary to the Company and the Client will not
retransmit, redistribute, publish, disclose, or display in whole or in part such data or
information to third parties; and
v. the Client will use such data or information solely in compliance with exchange
In respect of market and exchange data license fees, the Company will absorb these costs,
however the Client agrees that, where applicable for access to live market and exchange data
(derived or nonderived), the Company may pass some or all of these costs onto the Client if they
are associated with the use of his account as we inform him from time to time.
If at any time the Client logs into his account during the month for which the above
charges are liable, his Account Balance will be debited on or around the end of such month
(regardless of whether the Client actually views any of the data for which the charge becomes
liable). If the Client has an insufficient Account Balance to cover the charges, the Company may
elect to suspend the Client’s access to the live market and exchange data (unless he holds an
open Transaction in those markets, in which case his access will be suspended once those
Transactions have closed).
The charges will be made retrospectively for use of the data in the previous month and
will not be pro-rated, so a full month’s charge will apply regardless of when the Client logs
into his account. Charges will be applied in the denominated currency of the Client’s account.
20. Account Settlement
If the Client’s Account Balance is in debit, the full amount of that debt is due
immediately. Payment must be made in the currency in which the debit balance is denominated (or
by agreement with the Company, and at an exchange rate designated by us, the amount may be
transferred to a currency of the Client’s choice).
When the Client’s account is in deficit the Company or the Company’s agents acting on the
Company’s behalf, may carry out any credit and identity checks as the Company deems appropriate.
The Company will require immediate payment of any debt by either electronic bank transfer,
debit/credit card, direct debit, or any other method of immediate funds transfer acceptable to
the Company delivered to us. The Company is entitled to refuse payment by cheque, without notice
and without giving a reason.
The company may charge interest on all sums payable to the Company under the Contract
which have not been paid within 10 days of the date on which they arose. The Company will charge
the Client 5 percent (5%) per calendar month or part thereof cumulative on sums owed to the
Company, until the debt has been paid in full.
The Company may debit from the Client’s account or any other account in which he holds an
interest any costs, debit interest and expenses incurred in recovering indebtedness. All debts
to the Company are recoverable in law; and irrespective of size may be actively pursued.
Under no conditions with unrealized profits be paid or be made available for electronic
withdrawal or used to offset the Client’s obligation to pay his realized losses.
We may retain funds that are required to cover margin requirements, net unrealized losses,
uncleared funds (i.e. cheques or credit card payments), realized losses and any other amount due
under the Contract.
The Company may at any time set off any liabilities owed by the Company to the Client
against any amount owed by the Client to the Company. The Company may, without notice to the
Client, consolidate any, or all of, his accounts of whatever type or description of which he is
the legal owner or has a claim of legal or beneficial ownership.
The Company may apply any credit balance to which we are at any time beneficially entitled
on any account which the Client has with the Company in (or towards) satisfaction of any sum
then due and payable (but unpaid) by the Client to the Company. If such balances are in
different currencies, the Company may convert either balance at a rate of exchange reasonably
determined by us for the purpose of the set-off. The Company will not be liable to the Client
for any exchange rate loss suffered by him as a result of such currency conversion.
Without prejudice to any part of the Contract, the Company may require the settlement of
all open Transactions at any time and with immediate effect. Such settlement will be made at the
prevailing Company’s Quote for each Transaction at the time of settlement or at the first such
time that such a settlement may be practicably made. The settlement amount in respect of each
open Transaction will be calculated by the Company as the difference between the opening value
of each Transaction and its value on the settlement price.
21. Charges, Commissions, and Fees
The Client shall be required to pay the charges as agreed from time to time, any fees or
other charges imposed by third parties during the execution of the services. The Company s
current charges including spreads, commission charges, interest and other fees are available in
full at request.
By accepting this Contract, the Client acknowledges that fees and charges may be applied
on the account. The Client further agrees that the Company is entitled to change its charges
without any consultation or prior consent from the Client.
The Company is compensated for its services through the Buy/Sell (Ask/Bid) spread, so when
the Client opens a position in a specific instrument, he essentially "pays" the spread. The
spread rates per instrument can be viewed by the Client at any time on the Company s website.
Subject to the Financial Instruments traded by the Client, the following charges may be
i. Spread: A spread is the difference between the bid (buy) and the ask (sell) price on
the specific instrument the Client trades. This cost is realized every time the Client
opens and closes a trade.
ii. Commission: This is the commission the Client pays when he buys and sells a
iii. Currency conversion: This is the cost incurred when converting realized profits and
losses as well as any costs and charges that are denominated in a currency other than
the base currency of the Client s Account.
iv. Overnight Funding /Swap (Financing Fee): This is the swap cost for keeping the
Client’s position open overnight. The swap cost can be positive or negative depending on
the instrument to be traded. An overnight funding amount is either added to or
subtracted from the Client s account when holding a position after a certain time.
v. Trading inactivity: The Client s account is associated with the cost of maintenance
and other regulatory or compliance requirements so if there are no transactions by the
Client for a period of 12 months, the Company has the right to claim the applicable
inactivity fee as notified to the Client from time to time and the Company may deduct
such fee from the Client s Account. The inactivity fee will be up to USD 50 a month.
The Company may share charges with third parties, such as Introducing brokers or
affiliates, for services carried out on the Client’s behalf in the form of spread, commission,
mark-up, mark-down, or other remuneration. Details of such remuneration or sharing arrangements
may be available to the Client upon request.
Any changes to tax laws which result in future imposition of stamp duty, capital gains tax
or other tax, which may from time to time be levied on Transactions will be debited to the
The Client may be liable for other charges and taxes that are not imposed by the Company.
The Client is solely responsible for the timely payment of such charges and taxes. The Client
should seek independent advice if he is in any doubt as to what further charges or taxes may
apply to him as a result of him entering into the Contract.
Any type of charges, expenses, costs and fees, payable in regard to the Client’s payment
transactions for the purpose of this Contract, including but not limited to credit and debit
cards processing, bank transfers, payment service providers and any other relevant payment
methods, may be debited from the Client’s account.
Where monies have been deposited by bank transfer, the Company may require sight of the
original bank statement showing the transfer before any refund is made to that bank account.
Where bank accounts have been closed, the Company may require a letter from the
originating bank stating that the account has been closed and there are no funds owing to the
bank. Before we will refund to a new bank account the Company may require sight of the original
deposit transfer statement from the closed account and sight of an original new bank account
If the Company’s records show a discrepancy between card details and the Company’s
account details as supplied by the Client, the Company may require sight of original bank
statements, or any other relevant evidence, to confirm the Client’s status before processing a
22. Platforms and Systems
Although the Company gives no undertaking, representation, or warranty that the Platforms
will be available or accessible, the Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure
that the Platforms can be accessed by the Client for use in accordance with the Contract.
The Platforms will be regularly updated, and the Client should download and install the
updates when prompted in order to achieve the most efficient platform functionality. The Client
is responsible for ensuring that his information technology is compatible with the Company’s and
meets the Company’s minimum system requirements.
The Company may suspend a Platform with or without notice for any reason, including but
not limited to carrying out maintenance, repair, or development. The Company will not be liable
if access to any service is prevented or interrupted or otherwise unavailable due to a Force
Majeure Event and/or because of any suspension pursuant to the Contract, unless as a result of
the Company’s willful default, fraud or negligence.
22.4 The Company gives no warranty regarding the whole or any part of any Platform, the Website
or any systems or network links or any other means of communication or their suitability for any
equipment and device used by the Client for any particular purpose, unless as a result of the
Company’s willful default, fraud or negligence. The Company will have no liability to the Client
in relation to any loss that he suffers as a result of any delay or defect in or failure of the
whole or any part of a Platform, Website or any systems or network links or any other means of
communication. We will have no liability to the Client, whether in contract or in tort
(including negligence) in the event that any computer viruses, worms, software bombs or similar
items are introduced into his computer hardware or software via Websites, provided that the
Company has taken reasonable steps to prevent any such introduction.
Certain information on the Platforms may be provided by third parties. If any such
information ceases to be provided in a manner which is compatible with the relevant Platform,
the Company may remove as much information as is affected, without notice, without incurring any
liability to the Client, and without any change to his payment or other obligations. Further,
the Company may amend, update, supplement, or replace the Platform software from time to time
(in whole or in part) without notice, without incurring any liability to the Client, and without
any change to his payment or other obligations. The Client acknowledges and agrees that his use
of the Platforms after any amendment, update, supplement, or replacement shall constitute his
acceptance of such amendment, update, supplement, or replacement.
If, despite the Company’s reasonable efforts, any Platform or related system failure occurs
that makes trading impractical, all new trading will be suspended. All open Transactions will
remain open until the close of the relevant Underlying Market; however, while systems are down,
no Stop Loss Order or Limit Order may be executed. The Company is not responsible for any
additional trading loss suffered due to a Stop Loss Order or a Limit Order not being duly
executed because of a systems failure unless as a result of the Company’s willful default or
fraud. The Client remains liable for any open Transactions until confirmation is issued that
they have been closed.
During periods of high volatility in Underlying Markets, the Company may experience high
telephone call volumes and where Platforms or telephony is interrupted, the Client may not be
able to contact the Company. In such circumstances, the Company will use commercially reasonable
efforts to answer the Client’s call as quickly as practicable but will not be liable to him for
any trading loss due to delay, unless as a result of the Company’s fraud or willful default.
23. Robotic Trading Tools
The Client is solely responsible for any third-party applications that he uses in
conjunction with his account.
It is the Client’s sole responsibility to conduct due diligence on any software programs
he uses and determines for himself whether the software is right for him. If the Client is
unable to make that determination himself, they should seek advice from a professional advisor.
The Company does not give the Client any advice on the selection or use of any interface or
other third-party software or hardware.
If the Client decides to install or use a Trading Robot, Script, or any other application,
he will does so at his own risk. The Company shall not be responsible in any way whatsoever in
respect of decisions, Orders, Transactions, or signals generated by the use of a Trading Robot,
Script or other application, the Client uses of such tools or any resulting trading losses.
The Client acknowledges and understands that a Trading Robot, Script, or other application
may generate a high number of trades and at times leverage the Client’s account to the maximum
possible exposure to a market given the Client’s available funds. It is the Client’s sole
responsibility to monitor these Orders and Transactions and to always maintain sufficient funds
in his account.
If a Trading Robot, Script, or other application is creating high volumes of Transactions,
pending Orders or Order amendments that the Company believes is impacting the performance of the
Company’s servers then we may elect to disable such applications in respect of the Client’s
account. In normal circumstances, the Company will use reasonable efforts to notify the Client
of the Company’s intention to suspend his account.
The Company may elect to ban or otherwise prohibit the use of any particular Trading
Robot, Script, or other application or to disable the Client’s account for all such
24. Inactive Accounts
Where no activity has occurred on the Client’s account for 365 days, his account will be
“Activity” relates to the placing or closing of a trade, maintaining an open position, or
making a deposit on the Client’s account.
In such cases, a monthly inactivity fee will be applied to the Client’s account as follows
and in accordance with the designated currency of the Client’s account: USD 50
The Company may apply the inactivity fee to the Client’s account without prior notice.
Inactivity fees will be deducted from the Client’s available cash balances on the last
calendar day of each month following the qualifying charging period.
Where the Client has multiple accounts with the Company, the Company will apply the
inactivity fee on each account which is inactive.
If an inactive account becomes active during a calendar month, the Company will waive the
inactivity fee for that particular month. The qualifying charging period will then reset.
The Company may deactivate the Client’s account if becomes inactive in accordance with this
Where practicable the Company will use reasonable efforts to give the Client’s advance
notice of any deactivation. If the Client receives a notice of pending deactivation or his
account has been deactivated without him receiving notice and the Client wishes it to remain
active or be reactivated, please contact the Company.
25. Pricing Errors
If a Pricing Error occurs, the Company may, without the Client’s consent, void from the
outset, close on the basis of the Company’s then current prices, or amend the terms of any
Transaction containing, or based on, such Pricing Error. If the Company chooses to amend the
terms of any such erroneous Transaction, the amended level will be such level as we reasonably
believe would have been fair at the time the Transaction was entered. In deciding whether an
error is a Pricing Error, the Company may consider any relevant information including the state
of the Underlying Market at the time of the error or any mistake in, or lack of clarity of, any
information source or pronouncement upon which the Company bases its quoted prices. Any
financial commitment that the Client has entered or refrained from entering in reliance on a
Transaction with the Company will not be taken into account in deciding whether or not there has
been a Pricing Error.
In the absence of willful default or fraud by the Company, we will not be liable to the
Client for any loss, cost, claim, demand, or expense following a Pricing Error (including where
the Pricing Error is made by any information source, commentator, or official upon whom the
Company reasonably relies).
If a Pricing Error has occurred and the Company chooses to exercise any of the Company’s
rights under clause 25.1, and if the Client has received any monies from the Company in
connection with the Pricing Error, the Client agrees that those monies are due and payable to
the Company and he agrees to immediately return an equal sum to the Company.
26. Market Disruption
If the Company determines that the Underlying Market in relation to an open Transaction is
subject to a Disruption Event, then the Company may, with or without notice to the Client and
without prejudice to any other rights and remedies, have under the Contract or at law:
i. suspend trading in the relevant market(s);
ii. close any or all open Transactions (in whole or in part)
iii. refuse to place any Transactions in the relevant market(s);
iv. cancel any Orders and fill any Orders in each case at such price as the Company may
consider in good faith to be appropriate in all the circumstances;
v. suspend or modify terms of the Contract to the extent that it is impossible or not
reasonably practicable for the Company to comply with them;
vi. immediately require payment of any margin and/or any other amounts owed by the
Client to the Company; or

The Company will not be liable to the Client for any loss suffered by him as a result of
the suspension or trading of any Underlying Market.
If an Underlying Market or related exchange becomes subject to a: takeover, merger offer,
corporate action event, or enters into, or becomes the subject of an Insolvency Event, the
Company may close any or all Transactions at any time during the events mentioned. The Company
may also adjust the opening price of the Client’s Transaction to reflect any cash portion of the
offer or to amend the Size to reflect any corresponding underlying adjustment caused by the
events mentioned. The Company also has the right to close the Client’s existing Transaction and
reopen a new Transaction reflecting the new equity that is created by a takeover, merger, or
If an equity or Underlying Market is suspended, the Company may increase the Client’s
margin requirement to the extent considered by the Company to be fair and reasonable in the
circumstances. If an Underlying Market remains suspended for more than five business days, the
Company may close the Transaction with reference to the last official price at the time of
27. Market Abuse
The Company may hedge its exposure to the Client by opening corresponding positions with
other institutions. As a result, when the Client enters into Transactions with the Company, such
Transactions can, through the Company’s hedging, exert a distorting influence on the relevant
Underlying Market in addition to the impact that it might have on the Company’s prices.
Each time the Client opens or closes a Transaction, the Client represents and warrants to
the Company that:
i. the Client will not place and has not placed a Transaction with the Company relating
to a particular Underlying Market if to do so would result in the Client, or others with
whom he is, or may reasonably be regarded as, acting in concert, having an exposure to
that Underlying Market which is equal to or exceeds the amount of a declarable interest
(as set by law, rule or regulation or by the relevant exchange) in the relevant company;
ii. the Client will not place and has not placed a Transaction with the Company in
connection with a placing, issue, distribution or other analogous event, or an offer,
takeover, merger or other analogous event in which he is involved or otherwise
iii. the Client will not place and has not placed a Transaction that contravenes any
law, rule or regulation against insider dealing or market abuse.
iv. the Client will not place and has not placed a Transaction in circumstances which
otherwise may be considered to constitute market abuse; and
v. the Client is familiar with, understands and is in full compliance with any
Applicable Law concerning the short sale of securities if he seeks to execute a
Transaction with a short securities position which the Company may hedge with a short
sale of securities that the Client uses of the services provided by the Company will not
result in a breach by the Company of any Applicable Law concerning the short sale of
The Company may, if required, in order to comply with legal and regulatory obligations and
without notice or reason, close any Transactions (in whole or in part) and treat any such
Transactions as void.
If the Client opens any Transaction in breach of the representations and warranties given

constitute a breach of the Contract and, in addition to the Company’s rights, the Company may,
without notifying the Client of the Company’s reasons:
i. enforce the Transaction against the Client if it is a Transaction under which he has
incurred a loss; and
ii. treat the Transaction as void if it is a Transaction under which the Client has
secured a profit (and retain any such profit for the Company’s own account, subject to
Applicable Law), unless and until the Client produces conclusive evidence within 6
months of the Transaction being closed that the Client has not, in fact, committed the
relevant breach of warranty and/or misrepresentation.
28. Unfair and Improper Activities
The Client agrees to use the Company’s services in good faith and not to take unfair
advantage of its services or are otherwise act in an unfair manner or abusive manner in respect
of the Company’s systems, platforms, or accounts. Such behavior includes:
i. using any electronic device, software, algorithm, or any dealing strategy that aims
to manipulate or take unfair advantage of the Company’s Services;
ii. exploiting a fault, loophole or error in the Company’s software, system, the
iv. using trading strategies designed to return profits by taking advantage of latencies
in a Platform, delayed prices or through high volumes of Transactions opened and closed
within an unusually short period of time as compared to the ‘average’ client and/or
targeting tick fluctuations rather than movements reflecting the correct underlying
v. placing high volumes of pending or market Orders on the Client’s account where the
Client has insufficient funds in his account to cover the margin required if those
Orders were executed.
Any financial commitment that the Client has entered into, or refrained from entering into,
in reliance on a Transaction with the Company will not be taken into account in deciding whether
or not there has been unfair or abusive behavior.
If the Client carries out any of the behavior in clause 28.1 in respect of any
Transaction, or the Company has reasonable grounds to believe the Client has done so, it will
constitute a breach of the Contract and, in addition to the Company’s rights, we may:
i. terminate the Client’s access to the Company’s servers;
ii. amend the Transaction, so that it is as it would have been if the Order was executed
in the absence of the improper behavior;
iii. enforce the Transaction against the Client if it is a Transaction under which he
has incurred a loss; and
iv. treat the Transaction as void if it is a Transaction under which the Client has
secured a profit (and retain any such profit for the Company’s own account, subject to
Applicable Law), unless and until the Client produces conclusive evidence within 6
months of the Transaction being closed that the Client has not, in fact, carried out the
relevant behavior in clause 28.1.
The Company can exercise the rights even if the Client has entered into (or refrained from
entering into) arrangements with third parties relating to the relevant Transaction and even if
the Client may suffer a trading loss as a result.
If the Company exercises any of its rights under clause 28.1, and if the Client has
received any monies from the Company in connection with any associated Transactions, the Client
agrees that those monies are due and payable to the Company and the Client agrees to immediately
return an equal sum to us.
29. Trading Limits
The Company will observe all trading limits or restrictions as from time to time applied by
its internal rules and procedures. It may enter into transactions for the Client either
generally or subject to specified conditions or limitations.
The Client understands and agrees that the Company may impose trading limits and other
conditions on the Client trading in Securities, on such basis as from time to time the Company
determines in light of the Client objectives, positions, possibilities, transactions or in light
of the Company’s internal rules and policies.
The Client agrees that these Rules are binding on the Client. Without limiting the
foregoing, the Client agrees not to exceed, acting alone or in concert with others, exercise or
