Risk disclosure

This Notice is provided by Solid Trading BV | Solid FX (“we”) a company registered in The Netherlands with registered number 37152948. Our registered office is Gorslaan 60E, 1441 RG Purmerend The Netherlands.

This Notice provides you with information about the nature and risk of certain investment types and trading strategies and the potential for risk and loss that arises in respect of trading on the financial markets.

General

Before deciding to invest in or deal in any investment you should ensure you understand all the risks associated with it and carefully consider its suitability for you in light of your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite. You should familiarise yourself with the product that you propose to trade and the way in which the market operates. If you intend to deal on-exchange you should ensure you are familiar with the Exchange’s rules and conventions. You should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose and if you have any questions you may wish to seek advice from an independent financial advisor.

The instruments we offer:

We provide the opportunity for investment and dealing in a wide range of instruments, including:

  • currency trading (FX);
  • NDF’s, Swap’s (FX);
  • commodities such as oil and precious metals

Volatility

Financial markets are volatile, with the possibility of sharp price movements and changes of direction (the degree of which varies between instruments). This is particularly the case in reaction to news events. This obviously has a direct impact on the prospect of your profit and loss, and, can lead to apparently sudden losses.

Leveraged instruments tend to be more volatile than non-leveraged. Losses can be made quickly and this can lead to depletion of margin and a requirement to pay more at short notice or lose the whole of the investment. Under some market conditions, it may be difficult or impossible to hedge or liquidate a position. If you cannot hedge or liquidate your position, any existing losses may continue to mount. Even if you can hedge or liquidate your position, you may be forced to do so at a price that involves a large loss.

Foreign markets

Foreign markets will involve different risks from markets in your home or base currency. In some cases the risks will be greater. The potential for profit or loss from transactions on foreign markets or in foreign denominated contracts will be affected by fluctuations in exchange rates.

Non-readily realisable investments

We may arrange or enter into transactions in non-readily realisable investments. These are investments in which the market is limited or could become so. You may have difficulty selling such an investment at a reasonable price and, in some circumstances; it may be difficult to sell it at any price. Do not invest in such investments unless you have carefully thought about whether they are suitable for you.

Commissions and charges

Before you begin to trade, you should understand all commissions and other charges for which you will be liable. For example, commissions may be charged in the form of spreads, or, as a percentage of total contract value, or, might be levied by an exchange or clearing house and not simply as a percentage of your initial payment.

Clearing house protections

On many exchanges, the performance of a transaction by us (or of a third party with whom we are dealing on your behalf) is guaranteed by the exchange or clearing house. However, this guarantee is unlikely in most circumstances to cover you and may not protect you if your firm or another party defaults on its obligations to you. On request, we must explain any protection provided to you under the clearing guarantee applicable to any on-exchange derivatives in which you are dealing. For off-exchange instruments it is usual for there to be no clearing house protections.

 

Electronic trading

Trading on an electronic trading system may differ not only from trading in an open-outcry market but also from trading on other electronic trading systems. You must always ensure you understand the operation of any such system before you use it. If you undertake transactions on an electronic trading system, you will be exposed to risks associated with the system including the failure of hardware and software. The result of any system failure may be that your order is either not executed according to your instructions, is not executed at all and a lack of capability to keep you informed continuously about your positions and fulfilment of the margin requirements.

Insolvency

Our insolvency or default, or that of any other brokers involved with your transaction, may lead to positions being liquidated or closed out without your consent.

Past performance

You should be aware that the price of the financial instruments that you are dealing with depends on fluctuations in the financial markets outside of our control and that past performance is no indicator of future performance.
