Social Trading Risks
When making an investment decision, you must consider your entire financial situation, including financial commitments. You must understand that using Social Trading features is highly speculative and that you could sustain significant losses exceeding the amount used to copy the strategy of a trader or traders. Replicating a trader’s strategy does not guarantee the same return.
You may understand how stock markets work but you do not know why a trader is making the trade(s). It’s very important that you do your own analysis before making any investment, based on your own opinions and personal circumstances. You may also wish to speak to an independent financial adviser.
We want to draw your attention to the following important investment warnings.
- The value of shares and investments – and the income derived from them – can go down as well as up
- You may not get back the amount you invested - losing is a real risk
- Past performance is not an indicator of future performance
Note that Social Trading is only available in the UK at the moment. We'll expand soon to other countries. Stay tuned!
