If you are categorized by us a Retail Client, your maximum losses and liability from trading CFDs will not exceed the total balance of your account. This is referred to as Negative-Balance-Protection and aims to safeguard Retail Clients in highly-volatile markets, where extreme market conditions may cause large and sudden losses.
Please note that you are still responsible, including for your own benefit, for continuously monitoring your account(s) and for ensuring that they are well-margined at all times.
Non-Retail clients (Eligible Counterparties, Per Se Professional and Elective Professional Clients) are not represented by this Protection and remain liable should a negative balance occur.
For more details, please refer to Annex I, p. 9.Negative Balance Protection of the Tier1FX Customer Agreement.
