Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade forex, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. There is a possibility that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your investment and therefore you should not risk investing money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with forex trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
Risks of investing in CFDs
CFDs carry a very high level of risk, especially when they are highly leveraged (the higher the leverage of a CFD, the more risky). They are not standard, standardized products, and the various CFD providers have their own fees, terms and conditions. Therefore, they are generally not suitable for most retail investors.
Liquidity risk affects your ability to trade. One of the risks of CFDs is not being able to trade them at the time you want them (to prevent a loss, or to make a profit).
Execution risk is related to the fact that trades may not take place immediately. For example, there may be a time lag between the moment your order is placed and the moment it is executed.
