Foreign exchange trading and investment in derivatives (e.g. CFDs) can be highly speculative and may result in losses as well as profits. Foreign exchange and derivatives trading is not suitable for many members of the public and only risk capital should be applied. This website does not take into account the special investment goals, financial situation or specific requirements of individual users. You should carefully consider your financial situation and consult your financial advisors as to the suitability to your situation prior to making any investment or entering into any transactions.
Contracts for difference or CFDs are an agreement between the Client and ORBEX (Company), that at the close of the contract they will settle the difference between the opening price of a position in either shares or indices or commodities and its closing price. The amount of any profit or loss made on a CFD will be equal to the difference between the price of the underlying value of the index when the CFD is opened and the price of the underlying value of the index when the CFD is closed, multiplied by the number of index or commodity CFDs.
Being long CFD means buying the CFDs on the market with a view to selling them at a higher price, and making a margin deposit. In this situation the Client will be identified as the party who has purchased the indices or the commodities (i.e. the long party) and the Company will be identified as the short party.
Where the Client is the long party, the Client will generally make a profit if the price of the underlying index or commodity rises while the CFD position is open. Conversely, the Client will generally make a loss if the price of the underlying index or commodity falls while the CFD position is open. The Client may lose up to the total value of the underlying at the moment of the purchase multiplied by the number of index CFDs. The Client’s potential losses can therefore exceed the total value of the initial margin (and any additional margin funds) that the Client has deposited with the Company, insomuch as the Company may be obliged to close the Client’s positions at the worst possible time.
Being short CFD means the Client is selling the CFDs on the market with a view to repurchasing them at a lower price, and making a margin deposit. In this situation, the Client will be identified as the party who has sold the shares or the indices (i.e. the short party) and the Company will be identified as the long party.
Where the Client is the short party, the Client will generally make a profit if the price of the underlying index or commodity falls while the CFD position is open. Conversely, the Client will generally make a loss if the price of the underlying index or commodity rises while the CFD position is open. Theoretically, there is no limit to how far the market value of the underlying can rise. Hence, the Client’s potential losses are similarly unlimited.
As a result of existing market conditions, the Client may not be able to sell a CFD even if such a CFD is usually offered by the Company, or, when the Client has already sold a CFD, the Company may compel the Client to close his/her position.
