It is important to be well versed in the risk of trading commodity features, options CFD’s, spread betting, and foreign exchange (“Forex”). Many individuals fail to realize that these features have a very high rate of leverage, which can work both in their favor and against them. This is precisely why individuals interested in such transactions should ideally seek professional advice before proceeding.
Even though a prospective broker/advisor has past success in their performance, it does not mean that they will do the same quality of job the second time around. Many times these accounts have to maintain substantial profits in order to recover for past losses. As a result, their fees may not be as ethical as the prior transaction, which should cause you to tread quite carefully.
It is because of reasons such as these that brokers/advisors are required to issue a risk disclosure document to a prospective client outlining these potential fees along with potential conflict of interests and other associated risks. As a client, one is entitled to receive one of these risk disclosure documents complimentary of charge and under no obligation to hire that corresponding broker/advisor.
Bearing all of this in mind, it is important to remember that these high-risk investments may not be ideal from all prospective investors. The stakes are high and many investors simply cannot maintain the prospective loss of capital if their investment turns out to be unsuccessful. Losses can potentially amount to the total amount of the investment, and thus, they should be examined with the utmost care and prior thought.
