Risk

 

Introduction

AJUBIT offers you the ability to trade Physically Delivered Futures. Trading our Products carries a high degree of risk. This warning provides you with information about key factors and risks you should consider before trading with us. It is not a complete list of all the risks and does not explain how these apply to your individual circumstances. You should ensure you understand these risks before trading with us. If anything is unclear, please contact us. If you open an account with us, you must always keep these risk factors in mind and ensure you have sufficient financial resources to bear such risk when you trade with us. You should always monitor your positions carefully.

 

Our Products

Our products allow you to obtain direct and indirect exposure to an underlying asset, cryptocurrencies. This means you will own the underlying asset if you choose to trade PD or will never own the underlying asset, creating cash like settlement, if you close or roll the position near expiry but you will make gains or suffer losses as a result of price movements in the underlying asset to which you have the indirect exposure. Trading our products carries a high degree of risk and will not be appropriate for everyone.

 

Your losses are limited to your deposits

Every financial investment involves a degree of risk. However, your losses are limited to the amount you have funded your account with and by using this platform you will not owe us additional money.

 

The nature of the contracts between you and us

Every futures trade you enter using our services is a contract between you and a counterparty. AJUBIT does not act as the seller when you buy, and the buyer when you sell. Even though this is the case, you cannot transfer your contracts to other providers such as other exchanges.

You must close all contracts through us.

 

We do not provide advice

We provide our services on an execution-only basis. This means we do not provide investment or financial advice for any product. Where we provide factual information, market commentary, transaction procedure guidance or methods of managing risk, you should not construe these as advice. You are solely responsible for any decision to enter into a transaction with us. You are responsible for managing your own tax, regulatory, and legal affairs, including where relevant any filings, payments, or returns.

We do not provide any tax, legal, or regulatory advice. If you require assistance with a tax, legal or regulatory matters regarding our Products, you should seek independent professional advice.

 

Our Products are not appropriate for everyone

Prior to opening an Account, we are required to assess whether our products are appropriate for you. We may refuse to open an account for you on the basis that we do not consider our services to be appropriate for you. We would not expect our services to be appropriate for people who:

do not understand the impact of and risks associated with trading on margin and in derivative products;

do not have a high-risk tolerance;

cannot afford to lose the money they are trading with; or

do not already have a diversified investment portfolio or savings.

We will warn you if we do not consider our service to be appropriate for you. In such circumstances we may still let you open an account, but you do so at your own risk like all of our customers.

 

Pricing

We have a straightforward pricing policy for our products, which are on a basis points of Currency value traded and is available via our website. These charges may infrequently be updated so please check our website on a regular basis.

Past performance is not an indication of future performance

Past performance is not an indication of future performance. The value of investments can go down as well as up.

 

Markets are volatile and prices can change rapidly

Financial markets in general and these products in particular, are volatile and can move rapidly, particularly in response to news events. This will have a direct impact on your profits and losses. Knowing the volatility of an underlying market will help guide you as to where any stops should be placed. Volatility can often be hard to predict and come unexpectedly.

 

Market liquidity

Market conditions can change significantly in a very short period of time. Under certain trading conditions, it may be difficult or impossible to exit a position. This may occur, for example, at times of rapid price movement if the price rises or falls in one trading session or if trading is suspended or restricted at any point. If our futures market is abnormally wide, this can create more liquidation events or greater losses on liquidation. AS liquidation is a function of order book depth & automatic, an unexpected widening of bids and offers or loss of liquidity on the order book could potentially trigger auto-liquidations even though the underlying market may not have moved significantly. We have a sanity check system in place that references our own spot exchange and other external sources to prevent excessively unreasonable liquidations and fat finger error trades, but liquidations can occur inside this price band. This band is currently set at 10% above or below the referenced spot prices, but could vary significantly with market conditions, such as during periods of excessive volatility.

 

Monitoring open positions

Markets can move quickly and consequently you should monitor open positions closely. It is your responsibility to monitor all of your open positions at all times. Whilst any position is open it is prudent to have the ability to access your accounts quickly and easily.

 

Tax

You will be liable for all taxes, fees and assessments for any transaction. We do not provide tax advice and if you are in any doubt as to your tax affairs, you should seek independent professional advice
