10. TRADING WITH CFDs ON CURRENCY PAIRS

10.1. A contract for difference (or CFD) is a derivative financial instrument created on the basis of shares, indices, futures or another financial instrument (underlying instrument). Contracts for difference are designed to allow the client to speculate on the price of stocks, indices, futures or other financial instruments without physically buying the underlying instrument. In a contract for a difference on currency pairs, the price of a currency pair shows the ratio in which the two currencies are traded. The purchase of a currency pair represents the purchase of the first currency in the pair and the sale of the second. The sale of a currency pair represents the sale of the first currency in the pair and the purchase of the second. Transactions with currency pairs are without real delivery of currency. They are carried out for speculative purposes only.

10.2. Before trading CFDs, you need to make sure you fully understand the risks involved. Contracts for difference are complex tools and run with a high risk of sudden loss of money due to the leverage used. We are required to notify retail customers of the percentage of non-retail customers who have lost money from trading CFDs in the last 12 months. This notice is available on our website: www.fxmeridian.com . You need to assess whether you understand how difference contracts work and whether you can afford to lose your money. By concluding this Agreement, you agree that we may provide you with a description of some of the risks associated with trading contracts for difference, on our website and in the risk disclosure notice. CFD trading may not be suitable for all investors due to its high risk and complexity. You may lose all or most of your initial payment, and you may need to make additional payments. You are responsible for your own business decisions. If you have any doubts, you should seek independent advice. The trading carried out by you in our Trading Platform is not carried out on a stock exchange or on a market and is not cleared in a central clearing house. Contracts for difference (CFDs) are contracts with us as your counterparty.

10.3. The minimum quantities of the orders are indicated in the Table of Trading Instruments on the website www.fxmeridian.com . The Client is aware that the prices of the currency pairs are indicated in the Table of Trading Instruments on the website www.fxmeridian.com  or the mobile web application and may to differ minimally from the prices of other investment intermediaries.

10.4. Gains and losses from trading in currency pairs are always in the second currency of the pair. For example, when trading EUR / USD, the customer’s profit or loss will be in US dollars.

10.5. Currency pair transactions shall be concluded in the manner set out in point 7, using the means of communication described in point 6.

10.6. The Company may determine Prohibited Areas in which the customer will not be able to place pending orders.

The Company has the right to change these Prohibited Areas before upcoming important events without prior notice to the customer.

10.7. In case of abrupt changes in the price of a given currency pair, the Company may change the level of the guarantee amount required for this instrument, which may require the deposit of additional funds by the client. The change may take effect immediately without prior notice.
