Whenever We deal with You it will be on the basis that only You are our customer under these Terms and that even if You are acting as an agent and have identified Your client to us, unless otherwise required by HOC Rules that client will not be Our client and You will remain liable to Us as principal in relation to any transactions that You execute with us.
TRADEFTM will act as market maker and deal with You as principal in relation to Margin Trading. TRADEFTM will not deal as Your agent and will not offer investment advice to You in relation to Margin Trading so all Margin Trading transactions are undertaken on an execution only basis.
Transactions undertaken with You in forex will normally constitute a spot transaction in respect of currency pair exchange rates. Spot transactions will be due for delivery two days after dealing, however We will automatically roll Your positions out every day until they are closed out. Further details are set out in section 6 below.
A particular transaction may involve delivery of the relevant currency if We agree to this in advance. If delivery of currency occurs You will be liable to make or receive delivery and to pay for all related costs.
The services We provide under this Agreement may involve margined transactions.
Where We provide information, We shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure such information is accurate, but You acknowledge that information provided by Us may be based upon information obtained from third parties and/or which is incomplete and unverified. We shall not be liable for any costs, claims, liabilities, expenses or losses which You may suffer as a result of relying on any such information unless We have been negligent or acted in bad faith.
Performance of Margin Trading depends on the fluctuations of the financial markets, which is outside Our control. Past performance of is not an indicator of future performance.
We are not authorised to and will not act for You on a discretionary basis.
We shall not be obliged to effect any transaction, nor do anything else which We believe would breach any statute law or regulation.
You should not engage in Margin Trading unless You understand the nature of the contracts and the extent of Your exposure to risk. Further details of the risks associated with Margin Trading and information about Margin Trading is set out in Appendix D.
Forex transactions are a type of Margin Trading and involve You taking a position as to what You consider the price of one currency will be against the price of another currency in the future (a “currency pair”). For each currency pair We will quote a bid price, which is the price We will pay You in the secondary currency for the position in the base currency, and an offer price, which is the price You will pay Us in the secondary currency for the position in the base currency. The difference between the bid price and the offer price is known as the spread.
You can take a view on the price of the base currency increasing by going long, or You can take a view on the price of the base currency decreasing by going short.
Transactions in Margin Trading involve an obligation to settle a position at a future date. There may be financing costs in holding a Margin Trading position overnight.
We may agree to allow You to use stop loss, limit loss or take profit orders to limit Your losses whilst Margin Trading.
During the lifetime of any Financial Instrument, we, in our absolute discretion, reserve the right to review and adjust the percentage of funding required or the rates at which interest is calculated on such Financial Instrument, with or without notice to you, especially in, but not limited to, volatile market conditions. Positions that are open overnight may be adjusted to reflect the cost of carrying the position over.
Where we effect or arrange a Transaction involving a CFD you should note that, depending upon the nature of the Transaction, you may be liable to make further payments when the Transaction fails to be completed or upon the earlier of the transaction settlement or closing out of your position. You will be required to make further variable payments by way of margin against the purchase price of the Financial Instrument, instead of paying (or receiving) the whole purchase (or sale) price immediately. The movement in the market price of your investment will affect the amount of margin payment you will be required to make. We will monitor your margin requirements on a daily basis and we will inform you as soon as it is reasonably practicable of the amount of any margin payment required under this clause.
You agree to pay us on demand such sums by way of margin as are required from time to time or as we may in our discretion reasonably require for the purpose of protecting ourselves against loss or risk of loss on present, future or contemplated transactions under these Terms Of Business.

In the event of Your default, relevant details may be recorded with a credit reference agency. This information may be used by other brokers, financial institutions etc in assessing applications for credit by You.
You accept that in the event an account is held in joint names, then each account holder is jointly and severally liable to TRADEFTM under these Terms of Business. This means that all account holders are separately responsible for keeping to the terms of this Agreement.

We may assume instructions received from one holder of a joint account or one trustee in a trust account will be given on behalf of and with the knowledge of all holders or trustees of the account.

Please note that We are unable to accept instructions following the death of an account holder until We are in receipt of a sealed copy of grant of probate. We will inform the executors of the value of the account at the date of death.
In the event of the death of one party of a joint account or a trustee please inform Us immediately. You will also need to complete a new account opening.
Charges are defined in Our Charges Schedule. If We amend Our charges You will be notified a
minimum of ten (10) days prior to those changes becoming effective.

SUMMARY OF CONFLICTS OF INTEREST POLICY
This policy covers conflicts that may arise between TRADEFTM or an employee of the company and its clients, as well as between one client and another. TRADEFTM’s senior management is responsible for ensuring that the systems, controls and procedures in place are robust and adequate to identify and manage a conflict as and when it arises. These procedures are regularly reviewed by the Compliance Department in order to ensure that they are up to date, reflect best practice and that all relevant activities and regulations are covered.
Guarding against conflicts of interest
Various systems and procedures have been put in place to minimize any potential for conflicts of interest. This list, although not exhaustive, includes:
- personal account detailing requirements within the firm
- information barriers preventing the flow of information between the group companies
- a gifts and inducements policy
- segregation of duties where a potential conflict of interest may arise if duties are carried out by the same individual
- a public disclosure policy (“whistleblowing”) for the firm Identification of conflicts
In the course of identifying potential conflicts of interest, TRADEFTM will take into account whether TRADEFTM or a staff member or another client:
- is likely to make a financial gain, or avoid a loss, at the expense of the client;
- has an interest in the outcome of a service provided to the client or of a transaction carried out on behalf of the client, which is distinct from the client’s interest in that outcome;
- has a financial or other incentive to favour the interests of another client or group of clients over the interests of the client;
- carries on the same business as the client; or
- Receives or will receive from a person other than the client an inducement in relation to a service provided to the client, in the form of monies, goods or services, other than the standard commission or fee for that service.
Management of conflicts
TRADEFTM operates several policies for managing conflicts of interest, including an independence policy and, where appropriate, information barriers. Where We are aware of a conflict We will manage the conflict in line with our policy and procedures. We will disclose a conflict to the relevant clients where it is not practicable for Us to manage it effectively or We otherwise think disclosure is necessary or desirable. In some cases We may decide not to proceed with a transaction which has given rise to a conflict of interest.
