High Risk Warning: Contracts for Difference (‘CFDs’) are complex financial products that are traded on margin. Trading CFDs carries a high level of risk since leverage can work both to your advantage and disadvantage. As a result, CFDs may not be suitable for all investors because you may lose all your invested capital. You should not risk more than you are prepared to lose. Before deciding to trade, you need to ensure that you understand the risks involved taking into account your investment objectives and level of experience. Past performance of CFDs is not a reliable indicator of future results. Most CFDs have no set maturity date. Hence, a CFD position matures on the date you choose to close an existing open position. Seek independent advice, if necessary.

In consideration of MB Alliance LLC. (hereafter the “Company” or “We” or “MarketBullish.Trade” or “Us”) agreeing to enter into over-the-counter (“OTC”) contracts for differences (“CFDs”) and foreign exchange contracts (“FX Contracts”) with the undersigned (hereinafter referred to as the “ Customer”, “ you”, “ your”), Customer acknowledges, understands and agrees that:

  1. Foreign Exchange and Derivatives Trading Is Very Speculative and Risky. Trading CFD’s and Spot FX Contracts is highly speculative, and involves a significant risk of loss; it may not be suitable for all investors but only for those customers who:
    • Understand and are willing to assume the economic, legal and other risks involved;
    • Are experienced and knowledgeable about trading in derivatives and in underlying asset types; and
    • Are financially able to assume losses significantly in excess of margin or deposits because investors may lose the total value of the contract not just the margin or the deposit.

    Neither CFD’s nor Spot FX Contracts are appropriate investments for retirement funds. CFD and FX transactions are among the riskiest types of investments and can result in large losses. Customer represents, warrants and agrees that Customer understands these risks, and is willing and able, financially or otherwise, to assume the risks of trading CFD’s and Spot FX Contracts; and that the loss of Customer’s entire Account balance will not change Customer’s lifestyle.

  2. Risks related to Long CFD positions, i.e. for purchasers of CFD’s. Being Long in a CFD means you are buying the CFD’s on the market by speculating that the market price of the underlying asset will rise between the time of the purchase and sale. As owner of a long position, you will generally make a profit if the market price of the underlying asset rises whilst your CFD long position is open. On the contrary, you will generally suffer a loss, if the market price of the underlying asset falls whilst your CFD long position is open. Your potential loss may therefore be bigger than the initial margin deposited. In addition, you might suffer a loss as a result of closing your position, in circumstances which you do not have enough liquidity for the margin on your account in order to maintain an open position.
  3. Risks related to Short CFD positions, i.e. for sellers of CFD’s. Being Short in a CFD means you are selling the CFD’s on the market by speculating that the market price of the underlying asset will fall between the time of the purchase and sale. As owner of a short position, you will generally make a profit if the market price of the underlying asset falls whilst your CFD short position is open. On the contrary, you will generally suffer a loss, if the market price of the underlying asset rises whilst your CFD short position is open. Your potential loss may therefore be bigger than the initial margin deposited. In addition, you might suffer a loss as a result of closing your position, in circumstances which you do not have enough liquidity for the margin on your account in order to maintain an open position.
  4. High Leverage And Low Margin Can Lead To Quick Losses. The high degree of “Gearing” or “Leverage” is a particular feature of both CFD’s and Spot FX Contracts. The effect of leverage makes investing in CFD’s riskier than investing in the underlying asset. This stems from the margining system applicable to CFD’s which generally involves a small deposit relative to the size of the transaction, so that a relatively small price movement in the underlying asset can have a disproportionately dramatic effect on your trade. This can be both advantageous and disadvantageous. A small price movement in your favour can provide a high return on the deposit, however, a small price movement against you may result in significant losses which could exceed the money placed on deposit. Such losses can occur quickly. The greater the leverage, the greater the risk. The size of leverage therefore partly determines the result of the investment.
  5. Effect of “Leverage” or “Gearing”. Transactions in foreign exchange and derivatives carry a high degree of risk. The high degree of “Leverage” or “Gearing” that is often obtainable in foreign exchange and derivatives trading can work against you as well as for you due to fluctuating market conditions. If the market moves against you, you may not only sustain a total loss of your initial margin deposit, and any additional funds deposited with The Company to maintain your position, but you many also inccur further liability to Company. You may be called upon to deposit additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. Failing to comply with a request for deposit of additional funds may result in closure of your position(s) by MB Alliance LLC on your behalf; you will be liable for any resulting loss or deficit.
  6. Risk-reducing Orders or Strategies. The placing of certain orders (e.g. “stop-loss” orders or “stop-limit” orders), which are intended to limit losses to certain amounts, may not be adequate given that market conditions or technological limitations that may make it impossible to execute such orders, e.g. due to illiquidity in the market. It should be noted that strategies using combinations of positions, such as “Spread” and “Straddle” positions may be as risky as taking simple “long” or “short” positions.
  7. Margin Requirements. Customer must maintain the minimum margin requirement on their open positions at all times. It is Customer’s responsibility to monitor his/her Account balance. Customer may receive a margin call to deposit additional cash if the margin in the account concerned is too low. MB Alliance LLC has the right to liquidate any or all open positions whenever the minimum margin requirement is not maintained. This may result in Customer’s CFD’s or Spot FX Contracts being closed at a loss for which you will be liable.
  8. Pricing. The Company quotes a lower price and a higher price at which you can place your Order. This is referred to as the Bid/Ask spread or “Spread”. The higher quoted price is the indication of the price you can buy the CFD. The lower quoted price is the indication of the price at which you can sell the CFD (that is, Close Out an Open Position for the CFD). Our Bid and Ask prices are set by Company and so these prices may not be the same as those quoted in the relevant underlying market but we aims to give competitive pricing.Please be aware that MB Alliance LLC does not act as your agent to find you the best prices. When your Order is executed, for you to break even or before you can realize a profit, putting aside for the sake of simple illustration any fees or charges, the price at which you exit your position needs to have moved in your favour to at least equal to the original Bid or Ask price that you opened the position (depending on whether you went long or short).Also, the available pricing may be limited by tick sizes, minimum steps, depending on the general market rules for trading the Underlying Instrument or Companies’ hedging, so, depending on the product you choose, your Order to exit your position might have to be in minimum increments of pricing before it can be accepted and executed. That could affect your net profit or loss.
  9. Cash Settlement. Customer understands that CFD and FX Contracts can only be settled in cash and the difference between the buying and selling price partly determines the result of the investment.
  10. Conflicts of Interest. The Company is the counter-party to all transactions entered into under the Customer Agreement and, as such, the Company’s interests may be in conflict with yours. Our conflicts of interest policy is available at the Company’s website.There is no central clearing and no guarantee by any other party of Company’s payment obligations to the Customer, thus Customer is exposed to credit risk with the Company. Customer must look only to the Company for performance of all contracts in Customer’s account and for return of any collateral.
  11. OTC Transactions. When trading CFD’s or Spot FX Contracts with us, such Transactions will not be executed on a recognized or designated investment exchange and are known as OTC (Over The Counter) transactions. All positions entered into with us must be closed with us and cannot be closed with any other entity. OTC transactions may involve greater risk than investing in on-exchange contracts because there is no exchange market on which to close out an open position. It may be impossible to liquidate an existing position, to assess the value of the position arising from an OTC transaction, or to assess the exposure to risk. Bid Prices and Ask Prices may not be quoted by us, based on best execution policies applicable in the market and even when they are, We may find it difficult to establish a fair price particularly when the relevant exchange or market for the underlying asset is closed or suspended. There is no central clearing and no guarantee by any other party of Companies payment obligations to the Customer. Thus the Customer is exposed to credit risk with Company. The customer must look only to Company for performance of all contracts in the Customer’s Account and for return of any Margin or Collateral.
  12. Trading suspensions. Under certain conditions it may be difficult or impossible to liquidate a position. This can occur, for example, at times of rapid price movement where the price for an underlying rises or falls during one trading session to such an extent that trading in the underlying is restricted or suspended. Where this occurs the client accepts any associated risk and that they will be liable for any resulting deficit. The client should also be aware that under certain circumstances The Company may be required to close positions due to regulatory or exchange instructions and as such MB Alliance LLC is not responsible for any losses that mat result.
  13. Rights to Underlying Assets. You have no rights or obligations in respect of the underlying instruments or assets relating to your CFD’s or Spot FX Contracts. The Customer understands that CFD’s can have different underlying assets, such as stocks, indices, currencies and commodities, as specified in CFD Trading Conditions and FX Trading Conditions pages available on our website.
  14. Currency Risk. Investing in Spot FX Contracts and CFD’s with an underlying asset listed in a currency other than your base currency entails a currency risk, due to the fact that when the CFD or Spot FX Contract is settled in a currency other than your base currency, the value of your return may be affected by its conversion into the base currency.
  15. One click trading and immediate execution. The Company’s online trading system provides immediate transmission of Customer’s order once Customer enters the notional amount and clicks “Buy/Sell.” This means that there is no opportunity to review the order after clicking “Buy/Sell” and Market Orders cannot be cancelled or modified. This feature may be different from other trading systems you have used.
