Trading futures and/or on regulated commodity exchanges inherently involves risk of loss and is not suitable for everyone. The leverage created by trading on margin can work against you just as much as it can benefit you, and losses could exceed the entire investment as well as additional cash deposits. You may be required to immediately provide capital upon notice to maintain any or all open positions, and failure to do so in a timely manner could result in penalties, liquidating debit balances, unforeseen financial obligation and the loss of opportunity sought by participating in the commodity futures and options marketplace. Only risk capital should be considered for alternative investment or speculation. Before opening an account, you should seek advice from related associations, regulators, certified public accountants, industry professionals and other trusted advisors. Be certain that you understand the risks and can withstand the potential losses associated with SWAPS, futures, options on futures or any other derivatives or cash commodity transactions in which you intend to participate.
