RISK WARNING: CONTRACTS FOR DIFFERENCE (‘CFDS’) ARE COMPLEX FINANCIAL PRODUCTS THAT ARE TRADED ON MARGIN. TRADING FOREX AND CFDS CARRIES A HIGH LEVEL OF RISK SINCE LEVERAGE CAN WORK BOTH TO YOUR ADVANTAGE AND DISADVANTAGE. AS A RESULT, FOREX AND 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 FOREX AND 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.

Forex investing offers some of the best reward/risk opportunities of any financial market. Through the use of leverage, traders can profit from the smallest movements in the exchange rate.
Leverage FX is traded using margin, starting from 0.20% with Prime Markets, which could be referred to as 500:1 leverage. Trading on margin can be a more efficient use of your capital because you only have to provide a percentage of the overall value of your position, while maintaining full exposure to the market. In effect, you are increasing your profit and loss potential. For example, with USD 100 as position margin, you could enter a position that has an overall value of USD 40,000. Remember that increased leverage enhances losses as well as profits. Additionally, markets can move against you and losses can exceed your initial deposit due to rapid price movements.
Liquidity The currency market is the most heavily traded financial market in the world, with a daily average turnover in excess of US$5.3 trillion. With so many market participants trading over 24 hours, the currency markets are more liquid than any other financial market.
24-Hour Market FX is an over-the-counter (OTC) market, which means trades do not take place through a centralised exchange. FX trading takes place around the world, whenever the markets are open. Unlike any other financial markets, investors can respond to currency fluctuations caused by economic, political and social events as they occur without having to wait for markets to open. The currency markets offer price volatility 24 hours a day so whatever your trading strategy, you could find numerous trading opportunities. However this also means that the markets are constantly moving, placing even more emphasis on monitoring your positions and using the appropriate risk management tools.
