Risk Disclosure Notice BG

Risk Disclosure Notice

Contracts for Difference, or CFDs, can put your capital at risk if used in a speculative manner. CFDs are categorized as high risk by some regulatory authorities as there is no protection of capital, no guaranteed return and clients can lose the amount invested. With the Trading Platform it is not possible to lose more than the amount invested and customers cannot be left in debt to Nevertheless trading CFDs is not suitable for all investors; make sure you fully understand the risks involved before investing in such an instrument.


1.1. You understand that using the electronic platform offered by (referred hereinafter as “we”, “our”, “us”, “the company”), you will have the opportunity to trade with CFDs. CFDs are high risk financial instruments which are not suitable for all investors. The trading platform is available at: (the website, the platform)

1.2. This notice provides you with information about the risks associated with CFDs, but it cannot explain all of the risks or how such risks relate to your personal circumstances. If you are in doubt you should seek professional advice.

1.3. It is important that you fully understand the risks involved before deciding to enter into a trading relationship with us. If you choose to enter into a trading relationship with us, it is important that you remain aware of the risks involved, that you have adequate financial resources to bear such risks and that you monitor your positions carefully.


2.1. The nature of margin trading markets means that both profits and losses can be magnified and, unless you place a Stop Loss Order, you could incur very large losses if your position moves against you. However you cannot lose more than the balance on your Trading Account.


3.1. The Provision of Services by the company to the Client is subject to fees, available on the company’s website. Before the Client begins to trade, they should obtain details of all fees, commissions, charges for which the Client will be liable. It is the Client’s responsibility to check for any changes in the charges.

3.2. The charges imposed by the company are subject to changes according to the Agreement with the Client.

3.3. There is a risk that the Client’s trades in any financial Instruments may be or become subject to taxation and/or any other duty due to changes in legislation or Client’s personal circumstances. The company does not offer tax advice.

3.4. The Client is responsible for any taxes and/or any other duty which may accrue in respect of their trades.

3.5. It is noted that tax legislation in different countries is dynamic and taxes are subject to changes without a prior notice.


4.1. CFDs are not suited to the long-term investor. If you hold a CFD open over a long period of time, the associated costs increase and it may be more beneficial to buy the underlying asset instead. The reason for the higher costs related to CFDs is that you use a much bigger leverage than in the case of a purchase of the base asset.


5.1. CFDs do not provide any right to the base instruments or – in the case of CFDs on stocks – to voting rights.


6.1. Don’t invest in contracts for difference money that you can’t afford to lose. An investment in contracts for difference carries a high degree of risk for the investor and due to fluctuations in value, the investor may not get back the amount invested.


7.1. Subject to our obligation to assess the appropriateness of the Trading Platform for your circumstances, but any decision whether or not to open an account, and whether or not you understand the risks is yours.

7.2. We may also ask you for information about your financial assets and earnings. We do not monitor on your behalf whether the amount of money that you have sent us or your profits and losses are consistent with that information. It is up to you to assess whether your financial resources are adequate and what level of risk you take.


8.1. You cannot lose more than your Trading Account balance.

8.2. Before you open a CFD trade with us we require you to deposit money with us as an initial margin and you must ensure that the amount in your Trading Account is sufficient to maintain your positions open. The required guarantee amount (or ‘margin’) will differ between instruments and the amounts will be indicated on the Trading Platform and/or on the website. This means that you will be trading using ‘leverage’ and this can work for or against you; a small price movement in your favor can result in a high return on the guarantee amount for the trade, but a small price movement against you may result in substantial losses.

8.3. We will further require you to ensure that the funds in your Trading Account exceed the minimum required in order to keep a position open. Therefore, if the price of the CFD moves against you, you may need to provide us with substantial additional margin, at short notice, to maintain your open positions. If you do not do this, we will be entitled to close one or more or all of your positions. You will be responsible for any losses incurred.

8.4. You should also be aware that under the Client agreement we are entitled, at our sole discretion, to ask the Client to maintain the margin above the required minimum (also known as ‘margin call’). Under the Terms of Business, you are required to satisfy any margin calls immediately, by any applicable means in the time prescribed by us. If you do not do this, we will be entitled to close one, or more, or all of your positions.

8.5. Unless you have taken steps to place an absolute limit on your losses (for example, by placing a Stop Loss Order on your Account) it is possible for adverse market movements to result in the loss of the entire balance of your Trading Account.

10.2. CFDs are therefore only suitable for those Clients who fully understand the market risk and have previous trading experience. If unsure, it is advisable to seek independent advice.

10.3. Slippage is the difference between the expected price of a transaction in a CFD, and the price the transaction is actually executed at. Slippage often occurs during periods of higher volatility (for example due to news events) making an order at a specific price impossible to execute when market orders are used, and also when large orders are executed when there may not be enough interest at the desired price level to maintain the expected price of trade.


11.1. Positions opened with us represent derivatives on other products and are not traded on any exchange. The prices and other conditions are set by us, subject to any obligations we have to provide best execution, to act reasonably and in accordance with our user agreement and with our order execution policy. Each CFD trade that you open through our Trading Platform results in you entering into a contract with us; these contracts can only be closed with us and are not transferable to any other person.
