Products and services are available only at the discretion of Huatai HK, subject to the individual terms and conditions on which they are offered and such products and services may be withdrawn or amended at any time without notice.

The information contained in this Website is not intended to provide professional advice and should not be so relied upon. Persons accessing these pages are advised to obtain appropriate professional advice when necessary.
Investment involves risk. The price of investment products can and does fluctuate, and any individual investment product may experience upward or downward movements, and may even become valueless. There is an inherent risk that losses may be incurred rather than profit made as a result of buying and selling investment products.
The risk of loss in margin trading can be substantial. In some circumstances, you may sustain losses in excess of your initial margin funds. Placing contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders, will not necessarily achieve the desired results. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You are required to deposit additional margin funds without any demand or notice from Huatai HK if the market value of the margin funds is at or below the margin call level. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account. You should therefore study and understand the investment products before your trading and carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in the light of your own financial position and investment objectives.
