The following risk disclosure are not exhaustive. You are recommended to obtain independent professional advice before entering into any of these trades. You should carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition, experience and investment objective.

Risk Disclosure Statements

In relation to gold margin trading, the price of gold is volatile. You should recognise that the prices of gold as well as the value of their investments may go down as well as up. You will have no right to require any delivery or tender delivery of gold in any physical form in Hong Kong or elsewhere in respect of gold margin contract.

The risk of loss in leveraged foreign exchange and gold trading can be substantial. You may sustain losses in excess of your cash and any other assets deposited as collateral with the Bank. Placing contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders, will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your Account. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.

Risks relating to CNY. For any transaction involving Chinese Yuan ("CNY"), the Customer should note that:


Offshore CNY exchange rate risks – The Bank uses offshore CNY exchange rate in its calculations for margin trades involving CNY. The Customer should note that the offshore CNY exchange rate the Bank uses for these trades may deviate significantly from the onshore CNY exchange rate. Like other foreign currencies, CNY may rise or fall. The offshore CNY exchange rate fluctuates and will be affected by, amongst other things, the PRC government's foreign exchange control (for example, the PRC government regulates conversion between CNY and foreign currencies), which may adversely affect the Customer's return under the Customer's margin trades. The Customer will be exposed to fluctuations in the prevailing exchange rate between the offshore CNY and the Account Currency when the Customer's trade is settled. The risk of loss can be substantial.


Limitations on conversion of CNY - CNY is currently not freely convertible. The actual conversion arrangement will depend on the restrictions prevailing at the relevant time.

Investment involves risks. You should read and understand the term and conditions for margin trading services and the information available for such services before trade in any margin trading.
