Electronic active trading involves special risks and may not be suitable for everyone. Electronic active trading may also involve a high volume of trading activity. Each trade generates a commission and the total daily commission on such a high volume of trading can be considerable.
Electronic active trading accounts should be considered speculative in nature with the objective being to generate short-term profits. This activity may result in the loss of more than 100% of an investment, which is the sole responsibility of the customer. An electronic active trader should understand the operation of a margin account under various market conditions and review his or her investment objectives, financial resources and risk tolerances to determine whether margin trading is appropriate for them. The increased leverage which margin provides may heighten risk substantially, including the risk of loss in excess of 100% of an investment.
