Risk Statement:


All investments entail risks and can result in both profits and losses. Leveraged products, in particular, may not be appropriate for all investors as the effect of leverage is that both gains and losses are magnified. Before deciding to invest in any financial product, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, financial knowledge and experience and affordability as the prices of leveraged products may change to your disadvantage very quickly, it is possible for you to lose more than your invested capital and you may be required to make further payments.
