Risk Disclosure

High Risk Investment

Forex margin trading involves substantial risks. Forex margin trading exposes participants to risks including, but not limited to, changes in political conditions, economic factors, acts of nature and other factors, all of which may substantially affect the price or availability of one or more foreign currencies.

Speculative trading is a challenging prospect, even to those with market experience and an understanding of the risks involved. Only funds that a person would allocate to high-risk investments (i.e., funds that if lost would not affect the person's standard of living or financial well-being) should be used in trading.

In cases where a Client has used only conservative forms of investment in the past, forex trading might not be appropriate for the Client. A Client must understand that a total loss of all funds deposited can occur, should the market go against the Client's position(s).

Other risks

OctaFX does not and cannot guarantee the initial capital of the Clients' portfolio or its value at any time or any money invested in any financial instrument.

The Client should unreservedly acknowledge and accept that the client runs a great risk of incurring losses and damages as a result of the purchase and/or sale of any Financial Instrument and accepts and declares that they are willing to undertake this risk.

Clients should not engage in any investment directly or indirectly in Financial Instruments unless they know and understand the risks involved for each one of the Financial Instruments.

Web Trading Risks

There are certain risks due to the nature of internet-based trading. These may include but not be limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connection. Since OctaFX does not control internet providers, their equipment and technology, internet connection speed or reliability, configuration of your equipment or reliability of its connection, we cannot be responsible for communication failures, distortions or delays when trading via the Internet.

Software risks

Metatrader 4 trading software uses a sophisticated order entry mechanism and order tracking system. OctaFX does its best to fill your trade at the price requested. Internet trading, regardless of how convenient or efficient does not necessarily reduce risks associated with currency trading. All quotes and trades are subject to the terms and conditions of the Client Agreement.
