    High Leverage and low Margin can result in significant losses due to small price changein the traded products. High Leverage allows the Customer to assume more risk, magnifying both losses and profits; which can result in lossesup to and in excess of Deposits and Margin. The Customer must consider that if the trend in the market is against him/her the Customer may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited to maintain open positions.
