CTGPRIME - Risk Warning
Margin FX and CFD products are considered speculative products which are highly leveraged and carry significantly greater risks of capital loss than non-geared investments, such as shares. You should not invest in Margin FX or CFD products unless you properly understand the nature of Margin FX and CFD products, and are comfortable with the attendant risks. You should obtain financial, legal, taxation and other professional advice prior to entering into a Margin FX or CFD transaction to ensure this is appropriate for your objectives, needs and circumstances.
Any opinions provided by CTGPRIME or CTGPRIME.COM (including its website and representatives) is general in nature and does not take into account your financial circumstances. Before making an investment decision based on the above, you need to consider whether the advice is appropriate for your own personal financial circumstances. This might mean that you seek personal advice from a representative authorized to provide personal advice.
Internet Trading Risks
You shall be responsible for providing and maintaining the means by which to access the electronic trading platform, which may include without limitation a personal computer, modem and telephone or other access line. While the internet and the World Wide Web are generally reliable, technical problems or other conditions may delay or prevent access thereto. If you are unable to access the internet and thus, the CTGPRIME website, it will mean you may be unable to copy or AutoCopy (or close) a trade from an CTGPRIME member when desired and you may suffer a loss as a result. We cannot be responsible for communication failures, distortions or delays when trading via the internet.
Best Efforts Basis
CTGPRIME strives to ensure the best user experience on its website; however, there might be occasional instances of service (or part thereof) downtime due to technical issues, preventing full functionality of the service to its users. This may result in you being unable to copy or AutoCopy (or close) a trade from an CTGPRIME member when desired and you may suffer a loss as a result. You agree that in no event should you hold CTGPRIME liable for such incidents or resulting potential or realized monetary loss.
A high degree of leverage is obtainable in trading Margin FX contracts because of the small Margin requirements which can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as large gains. The impact of leverage is that even a slight fluctuation in the market could mean substantial gains when these fluctuations are in your favour, but that could also mean considerable losses if the fluctuations are to your detriment.
Foreign exchange currency markets are subject to many influences which may result in rapid currency fluctuations and reflect unforeseen events or changes in conditions with the inevitable consequence being market volatility.
Given the potential levels of volatility in the foreign exchange markets, it is therefore recommended that you closely monitor your positions with your broker at all times. Foreign exchange currency markets are highly volatile and are very difficult to predict. Due to such volatility, in addition to the spread that your broker adds to all calculations and quotes, no such Margin FX contract offered by your broker, or any other financial services provider, may be considered as a safe trade.
All Derivatives involve risk and there is no trading strategy that can eliminate it. You could lose all of the initial Margin that you deposit to establish or maintain a Margin FX Position.
In cases where you are speculating, we suggest that you do not risk more capital than you can afford to lose. A good general rule is never to speculate with money which, if lost, would alter your standard of living.

Social networks are on-line groups, networks or communities of people who share some common element(s) such as a particular interest, and are interested in exploring and discussing such interests with others on the Internet. Social networking involves the on-line interaction of its members via multiple and various electronic formats, such as chat, messaging, email, video, voice chat, file sharing, blogging, discussion groups and so on.
A social network provides its members with many features, such as the ability to create and view profiles of other members who share commonalities. A social network also allows members to create personal profiles, potentially with fairly detailed information, as well as allow its members to engage in activities such as create personal blogs, share personal information and other applications that allow its members to help them to connect with other network members.
Social networks are not without their risks, which are no different than any other on-line activity. With public spaces, or even within a closed social network community, the services can be used by anyone. There are risks as one does not truly know who the other members of the social network are. CTGPRIME has no control over what third parties with access to your information may do with it. For example, you may post certain personal information, but another member copies and publishes it.
When using social networks, you should take caution when posting your personal information as well as carefully consider the information you get from the social network. You should take care in trusting the information posted in a social network as it may be difficult to prevent members or the public at large from posting false or misleading information, including information in their personal profiles. Although CTGPRIME takes reasonable steps to regularly monitor the content of its site to identify and remove any misleading or otherwise fraudulent posts, and may ban a member for egregious or repeat violations, there is no assurance that we will detect all misleading or fraudulent posts, and members should not rely upon or assume the accuracy of information posted by other members and should make their own independent trading decisions.
In addition, be careful with personal information. Once you have posted your personal information to the Internet, you have lost control over who will see it and how it will be used. Information you post or as contained in your profile can easily be copied and shared with thousands of others at the press of a button. In addition, when posting other materials, such as photos, you should take precaution as such information or pictures can be altered or distorted.
There is the potential for risk in using the CTGPRIME services stemming from the illegal or improper use of the social network by third parties who might, for example, post misleading information in an attempt to improperly influence trading decisions or find ways to copy and aggregate member profiles, collect personal financial information or copy personal content and use it for their own purposes.
