Risk Disclosure Statement

Risk Disclosure Statement

This Risk Disclosure Statement (RDS) does not take into account your financial situation, personal objectives or needs. Before using the products referred to in this RDS you should read it carefully, and then consider your objectives, financial situation and needs and take all reasonable steps to fully understand the possible outcomes of trades and strategies that can be employed using the Chancellor Precious Metals Limited (CPM, us, we, our) trading platform. CPM recommends that you seek independent financial advice to ensure that a particular product is suited to your financial situation and requirements.


There are a number of risks in using our bullion trading facilities. These risks may lead to unfavorable financial outcomes. Monitoring of any risks associated with our trading facilities is your responsibility. You should seek independent legal, financial and taxation advice prior to commencing trading activities and should not use our services unless you fully understand the products, and the benefits and risks associated with them.

CPM offers Gold/Silver trading on margin. Trading on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Gold/Silver trading is not regulated by the SFC. Therefore, trading Gold/Silver will not be subject to rules or regulations promulgated by the SFC which includes but is not limited to Client Money rules. Without prior notice, CPM reserves the right for any corrections or adjustments on the account which includes revocation of profits, widening of spread , alter a client's execution mode without prior consent from client for any reason.

HIGH RISK INVESTMENT : Trading Gold/Silver on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk tolerance. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with margin trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts. Past results are not indicative of future performance.

Some of the risks associated with using our bullion trading facilities include:

1. Unforeseen Circumstances

There is a risk that your money may be delayed or lost due to unforeseen circumstances. CPM will not provide a refund due to catastrophic disasters, terrorist attacks and other unforeseen events that affect our services.

2. Market Volatility

Bullion markets are subject to many influences which may result in hectic price fluctuations. Because of this market volatility, no bullion transaction which is available via our trading facilities can be considered "risk free".

Given the potential levels of volatility in bullion markets, it is recommended that you closely monitor your transactions at all times.

You can eliminate some of the downside risk by the use of stop loss orders. If you use a stop loss order we will enter into a position opposite to your existing position if the price reaches a level specified by you in advance. However, in a volatile market, CPM does not guarantee that the stop loss order will be successful in limiting your downside risk.

3. Market Risk

If you enter into a transaction for the purpose of trading an asset, you will be exposed to changes in the relevant asset market. These changes may result in losses to you which are in addition to any gains or losses resulting from fluctuations on bullion markets.

4. Leverage Risk

The use of our margin trading facilities involves a high degree of leverage. You can outlay a relatively small initial margin which secures a significantly larger exposure to an underlying asset. The use of margin trading facilities magnifies the size of your trade, consequently your potential gain and your potential loss is equally magnified. You should closely monitor all of your open positions. If the market moves against you and your initial margin deposit is diminished, we may automatically close out your position by entering into an equal and opposite position once pre-set limits are triggered.

5. Counterparty Risk

Given you are dealing with us as a counterparty to every transaction, you will have an exposure to us in relation to each transaction. In all cases, you are reliant on our ability to meet our obligations to you under the terms of each transaction. This risk is sometimes described as counterparty risk.

We may choose to limit our exposure to our clients by entering into opposite transactions as principal in the wholesale market.

You are also subject to our credit risk. If our business becomes insolvent we may be unable to meet our obligations to you.

6. Transactions in other Jurisdictions

Transactions on markets in other jurisdictions, including markets formally linked to a domestic market, may expose you to additional risk. Such markets may be subject to regulation which may offer different or diminished investor protection. Before you trade you should enquire about any rules relevant to your particular transactions. Your local regulatory authority will be unable to compel the enforcement of the rules of regulatory authorities or markets in other jurisdictions where your transactions have been effected. You should ask the firm with which you deal for details about the types of redress available in both your home jurisdiction and other relevant jurisdictions before you start to trade.

7. Market Information

We may in the future make available to you a broad range of financial information generated internally or obtained from agents, vendors or partners ("Third Party Providers"). This includes, but is not limited to, financial market data, quotes, prices, news, analyst opinions and research reports, graphs or data ("Market Information").

8. Systems Risks
