Trading the financial markets carries high risk and may not be suitable for all investors. Trading on margin and utilizing leverage can carry an even higher level of risk that can lead to a complete loss of investment funds. Before deciding to trade the financial markets, you should carefully and diligently consider your personal investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. Because a possibility exists that you could potentially sustain significant loss, you should NOT invest or trade any capital that you cannot afford to lose. It is your responsibility to be aware of and understand all risks associated with trading the financial markets, and to seek professional advice from an independent certified financial advisor if you have any doubts.
