Trading in CFD Products involves significant risk with frequent market movements and price changes. Clients are free to open/close a trade whenever they believe that it best fits, given that the markets are open. The Company does not prescribe a holding period for any position whether this is a buy or sell position. The client may choose to set a ‘Stop Loss’ or ‘Take Profit’ on his/her trade to minimise the risk of large unexpected movements.
Clients can withdraw their total balance whenever they choose to do so, if there are no open positions on their trading account. In case there are open positions, the client can withdraw any amount in excess of the margin required for that particular trade, i.e. their ‘free margin’. All withdrawal requests can be made from the ‘Members’ Area’ section on the Company’s website.
The complaint form can be found in the "Members’ Area" section on the Company’s website.
