Risk Disclosure

The risk of loss in bullion trading can be substantial. You agree that you may sustain losses in excess of your initial Margin. Placing contingent orders, such as stop order or limit order, by you will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You agree that you may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional Margin. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated without further notice. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in light of your own financial position and investment objectives
