I. RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT.

1.
Trading in margined FX involves a high degree of risk including the risk of loss of the Customer’s entire Risk Capital deposited with Milton. Losses, in some cases, have the potential to extend beyond the Customer’s Account Value. In consideration of Milton agreeing to enter into FX Contracts with its Customer(s) for this Account, Milton requires all the undersigned Customer(s) to analyze their financial objectives, financial status, investment constraints and tax situation to determine whether FX trading is suitable. In addition, we require our Customers to carefully read and acknowledge the Milton Risk Disclosure Statement that outlines without limitation the risks associated with trading margined FX through Milton. By signing this Agreement the Customer understands and agrees that:
2.
OTC Margined FX Trading involves a high amount of risk and is highly speculative. Customer(s) agrees that they are in full understanding and willing to assume the legal, economic, and other risks associated with the trading in margined FX, and are willing and able to assume the loss of their entire Risk Capital, defined as those funds, that if lost, would not change your lifestyle or your family’s lifestyle. As such, they further agree that margined FX trading is not suitable for Retirement Funds. Milton encourages Customers to closely manage outstanding open positions and to use prudent money management precautions such as, but not limited to, Stop Loss Orders.
3.
Excessive leverage available with Margined FX can lead to quick losses. Customer(s) agrees that using a high degree of leverage, defined as the use of a small amount of capital to control a larger amount of an Open Position, can result in large losses due to a price change(s) of open Foreign Currency Contract(s) with Milton. Milton provides leverage on most Currency Pairs for most customers of 100:1. With 100:1 leverage the Customer has the potential to control 1,000,000 unit position with 10,000 units notional value in an Account. Milton encourages its Customers to use only that portion of leverage that the Customer is most comfortable with and to use money management precautions such as, but not limited to, Stop Loss Orders for the purpose of limiting risk. Milton reserves, at its sole discretion, the right to reduce or increase the amount of leverage given on any Currency Pair at any time and without notice.
4.
FX trading experience periods of liquidity risk. Customer acknowledges that Liquidity Risk, resulting from decreased liquidity of a currency pair, is usually due to unanticipated changes in economic and/or political conditions. Customer also acknowledges that Liquidity Risk can affect the general market in that all participants experience the same lack of buyers and/or sellers. The Customer also understands that liquidity risk can be Milton specific due to changes in liquidity available to Milton from an Milton Custodian of funds interbank liquidity providers or specific to retail FX market makers due to a perception that the risks of the market segment has increased. When liquidity decreases, Customers can expect, at the minimum, to have wider bid to ask spreads as the supply of available bid/ask prices, outstrips the demand. Decreases in liquidity can also result in “Fast Market” conditions where the price of a currency pair moves sharply higher or lower or in a volatile up/down pattern without trading in an ordinary step-like fashion. In some instances, there may exist the possibility that a trading bid and/or ask price for a FX pair or pairs are not available (a situation where there is no liquidity). Although there may be instances when the aggregate OTC FX market enters a “Fast Market” situation or periods where liquidity is in short or no supply, it is important to note that, Milton prices, bid/ask spreads and liquidity will reflect the prevailing interbank market liquidity for Milton. Milton can Liquidate Positions of the Customer that do not have adequate margin: Because of the leverage available with OTC Margined FX Trading and the potential for extreme volatility, an Milton Custodian of funds reserves the sole discretionary right to liquidate Customer’s Account(s) should the Margin in the Account not be sufficient to cover the potential risk of loss. Milton graphically shows the Customer’s Liquidation Level on the Customers Milton Margin Monitor. Should the Customer’s Account value go below the free of programming bugs that can cause trading, position keeping or any other required functionality of the Trading Platform and other relevant software applications associated with Milton including but limited to clearing, market making and escrow Account software, from becoming inoperable or without errors.
5.
There is a Communication Risk that the Customer assumes. Although Milton will have qualified representatives available on the telephone during business hours, a representative may become unavailable due to communication or other malfunction, or high call volume. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that they will hold harmless Milton for any loss or missed trading opportunity resulting from any communication problems the Customer may encounter.
6.
Milton does not take responsibility for Money Managers. Should a Customer grant a Money Manager trading discretionary trading authority or control over a Customer’s Account, the Customer acknowledges that Milton does not take any responsibility for any action done by that Third Party on the Customer’s behalf. The Customer grants Money Manager trading authority for the Customers Account at it sole, and full risk. Milton reserves the right to correct any transactions executed on misquoting errors: In the case when a quoting error occurs that results in a Customer transaction done at an off-market price, Milton reserves the sole discretionary right to make the necessary corrections and adjustments to the Customer’s Account whether it be in the favor of the Customer or not in the Customer’s favor. Any change will be reported to the Customer either verbally or via an electronic method such as but not limited to email.
7.
All Market Recommendations made by Milton or any representative of Milton are for informational purposes only. Any decision by the Customer to buy or sell a foreign currency pair is an independent decision by the Customer. Market recommendations made by Milton or a representative of Milton do not constitute an offer to sell or buy any Foreign Currency pair from Milton or from any other source that may provide straight through processing prices to the Customer. Milton and its employees are not investment advisor(s) and have no fiduciary duty to Customer and therefore is not liable for any losses incurred by the Customer as a result of information or any recommendations made by Milton or representative of Milton. Customer is at Risk if Milton should go out of business. There is no guarantee that Milton as a business will be profitable. Consequently, there exists a credit risk that Milton may be subject to losses, which could, in turn, jeopardize the capital that the Customers have in their Accounts. Customer acknowledges that in the event of insolvency, the Customer can only look to Milton for performance and return of all Collateral and Margin that the Customer may have at Milton.
8.
Milton may decide to exit the FX Business. As a result, the Customer agrees and acknowledges that Milton may liquidate all Customer positions, and return margined funds to the Customer at the sole discretion of Milton, at any time and for any reason. Milton Customers do not hold Milton liable for any loss as a result of liquidation of the Customers position either on an actual basis or as a result of missed profit opportunities.
9.
Customers are responsible for any reporting errors. Any reporting and confirmation errors of omission, and/or errors in details of transactions including but not limited to the price contracts were executed, the currency pair traded, the market direction (i.e., ”buy” or “sell”) of order, the type of order and/or any errors in fees, charges or credits to the Customer’s Account including but not limited to charges for executing a transaction, wiring funds, rolling over position, and sweeping foreign currency balances into the home currency, require that the customer notify Milton immediately upon discovery for review. In addition, the Customer is responsible to submit any errors in writing to Milton and send the complete details to Attn: Milton Markets, 38 Birmingham Drive, Middleton, Christchurch, 8024 New Zealand. Notice shall be deemed received only if actually delivered or mailed by registered mail to, return receipt requested.
10.
Risks from trades done using chat communication devices. Milton may utilize an electronic conversational application or other similar chat application for the communication and execution of some market orders. Trades done using chat applications or the telephone should only be done if the Customer cannot execute using the Trading Platform. Although currently not planned, Milton reserves the right to charge a commission for trades done over chat applications. Should Milton charge a commission for chat application trades, it will be reported on the Milton Website and be reflected as a line item debit in your Milton Account Reports. All trades and charges done via chat applications are final. Neither Milton nor third party chat application provider is responsible or liable if the electronic logs of the electronic conversations are erased or never recorded because of error, omission or any reason. Milton is also not liable should User Name, Password and Account information be obtained knowingly or unknowingly by a Third Party and as a result, trades done in the name of the Customer without his or her knowledge or authorization.
11.
Milton has limited liability. The Customer agrees and acknowledges that Milton shall not be liable to the Customer for any claims, losses, damages, costs or expenses, including attorneys’ fees caused directly or indirectly by any events, actions or omissions, without limitation, claims, losses, damages, costs and expenses, including attorney’s fees, resulting from civil unrest, war, insurrection, international intervention, governmental action) including, without limits, exchange controls, forfeitures, devaluations and nationalizations), natural disasters, acts of God, market conditions, communication problems or any delay, disruption, failure of any transmission or communication system or computer hardware or software application whether supplied and belonging to Milton or from a third party vendor that the Customer and Milton relies on to conduct execution and reporting services.
12.
Effect of “Leverage” or “Gearing”. FX contracts carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the FX contract so that transactions are “leveraged” or “geared”. A relatively small market movement may have a proportionately larger impact on the funds Customer has deposited or will have to deposit. This may work against Customer as well as for Customer. Customer may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the firm to maintain Customer’s position.
13.
Risk-reducing orders or strategies. Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “limit” orders, particularly in volatile market conditions, will not necessarily limit Customer’s losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. Strategies using combinations of positions, such as “spread” and “straddle” positions may be as risky as taking simple “long” or “short” positions.
14.
Charges. Before Customer begins to trade, Customer should obtain a clear understanding of all charges for which Customer may be liable. These charges will affect Customer’s net profit (if any) or increase Customer’s loss.
15.
Electronic trading. Trading on an electronic trading system may differ not only from trading in an open-outcry market but also from trading on other electronic trading systems. If Customer undertakes transactions on an electronic trading system, Customer will be exposed to risks associated with the system including any failure of hardware and software. The result of any system failure may be that Customer’s order is either not executed according to Customer’s instructions or not executed at all. Since Milton does not control signal power, its reception or routing via Internet, configuration of Customer’s equipment or reliability of its connection, Milton cannot be responsible for communication failures, distortions or delays when trading on-line (via Internet). In no event shall Milton be liable for speculative or expectancy damages for potential future lost profits.
16.
Limitation of liability. Customer accepts any trading system provided by Milton “as is,” and without warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular use, purpose or application; timeliness; freedom from interruption; or any implied warranties arising from trade usage, course of trading or course of performance. Under no circumstances shall Milton be liable for any punitive, indirect, incidental, special or consequential loss or damages, including loss of business, profits or goodwill. Milton shall not be liable to Customer by reason of delays or interruptions of service or transmissions, or failures of performance of Milton’s or its affiliate systems, regardless of cause, including, but not limited to, those caused by hardware or software malfunction; regulatory action; acts of god; war, terrorism, or our intentional acts. Customer recognizes that there may be delays or interruptions in the use of our system, including, for example, those caused intentionally by Milton for purposes of servicing the system. Milton does not guarantee that alternative trading arrangements will be available at a particular time and Milton will not be held liable for delays in entering an order.
17.
Margin. Milton’s margin policies require that Customer’s Account be properly margined at all times. Failure to meet margin requirements may result in the liquidation of any open positions with a resultant loss. Milton reserves the right to liquidate all positions without notice if an Account falls below Customer’s minimum margin requirement, in accordance with Milton’s margin call policy.
18.
Quoting errors. Should quoting errors occur, which may include, but are not limited to, a mistype of a quote by Milton, a quote which is not representative of fair market prices, an erroneous price quote from a Milton employee, such as but not limited to a wrong big figure quote or an erroneous quote due to failure of hardware, software or communication lines or systems and/or inaccurate external data feeds provided by third-party vendors, Milton will not be liable for the resulting errors in Account balances. The foregoing list is not meant to be exhaustive and in the event of a quoting error, Milton reserves the right to make the necessary corrections or adjustments on the Account involved. In the event of a system error where interest is not charged or credited as scheduled, Milton reserves the right to apply the missed interest to the Account at any time.
19.
Third-Party Authority. In the event that Customer grants trading authority or control over Customer’s Account to a third- party trading advisor, such as a Money Manager, whether on a discretionary or non-discretionary basis, Milton shall in no way be responsible for reviewing Customer’s choice of such trading advisor, or for making any recommendations with respect thereto. Milton makes no representations or warranties concerning any trading advisor; Milton shall not be responsible for any loss to Customer occasioned by the actions of the trading advisor; and Milton does not, by implication or otherwise, endorse or approve of the operating methods of any trading advisor. If Customer gives a Money Manager authority to exercise any rights over Customer’s Account, Customer does so at Customer’s own risk. Customer should regularly review the activity in Customer’s Account to ensure that Customer approves of the transactions placed on Customer’s behalf by Customer’s Money Manager.
20.
Disclosure Regarding Bankruptcy Protections. The transactions Customer is entering into with Milton are not traded on an exchange. Therefore, Customer’s funds may not receive the same protections as funds used to margin or guarantee exchange- traded futures and options contracts, which receive a priority in bankruptcy. Since that same priority has not been given to funds used for off-exchange Forex trading, if Milton becomes insolvent and Customer has a claim for amounts deposited or profits earned on transactions with Milton, Customer’s claim may not receive a priority. Without a priority, Customer is a general creditor and Customer’s claim will be paid, along with the claims of other general creditors, from any monies still available after priority claims are paid. Even customer funds that Milton keeps separate from its own operating funds may not be safe from the claims of other general and priority creditors.
21.
Volatile Market Conditions. Trading at times of extraordinarily volatile market conditions, e.g. key news announcements may expose the Customer to additional risks, including the risk that the Customer may not get the price him or her requests. Milton cannot and does not guarantee its prices in times of extraordinary market volatility.
22.
Simulated Conditions. Simulated conditions may differ from real conditions. Therefore, Customers who trade on demo Accounts should not necessarily expect the same results from live trading.
23.

In addition, Customer hereby acknowledges, agrees and understands that the use of a trading system, course, program, research or recommendations of IB or another third party will not necessarily result in profits, or will avoid losses or limit losses.

j. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES will Milton transfer funds from one Account with Milton to another Account at Milton with different Account Authorization information.

3) PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS.

Please find funding instructions for additional currencies and payment options inside the Milton Markets customer area.

4) LIQUIDATION LEVEL.

Milton reserves the right to automatically liquidate the position and the Customer will be responsible for all losses as a result of the liquidation. Milton reserves the right to change the Liquidation Level at its sole discretion.

5) Prices from Milton are independent of prices found elsewhere. Customers acknowledge that the prices reported by Milton for buying and selling currency pairs are independent and can differ from the prices displayed elsewhere or from other liquidity providers in the interbank market. Differences can result from, but are not limited to, changes in liquidity from interbank market makers to Milton, an unbalanced position or exposure in currency pairs at Milton, or differing expectations of price movements in currency pairs by Milton. Milton expects that in most cases the prices provided to its Customers will be in line with the general interbank market but does not warrant or imply that this will always be the case.

6) Rollover rates for open positions of currency pairs are determined by Milton and are independent of prices found elsewhere in the Interbank market. Customer acknowledges that all existing Spot Open Positions that remain open over the end of business day for Milton, defined as 17:00 EST/EDT, are automatically rolled over to the next available Spot Settlement Date at a net debit or credit to the Customer(s) Account as determined by spot interest rates determined solely by Milton. In general, if the Customer is long a currency that has higher spot interest rate than the currency that Customer is short; the Customer can expect a net credit added to the Customer’s Account value at the end of day. If the Customer is short a currency that has a higher spot interest rate than the currency that the Customer is short, the Customer can expect a net debit subtracted from the Customer Account Value at the end of the day. Rollover debits and credits are also influenced by the number of days that the position has to be rolled. For positions that need to be rolled from a spot settlement date of Friday to Monday, the debit or credit will reflect rollover from Friday to Monday or three business days. For rollovers from Monday to Tuesday, Tuesday to Wednesday, Wednesday to Thursday and Thursday to Friday, the rollover debit or credit is for only one business day. If there is a holiday and Milton is closed, the rollover would take into consideration the holiday. For example, if Tuesday is a holiday, rollovers from Monday will be for two (2) business days (i.e. from Monday to Wednesday). Since rollover debits and credits are determined by the respective short-term spot interest rates of the respective currencies that make up a currency pair, a large spread from one currencies rate in relation to another’s can cause a large debit or credit rollover amount. This spread can result, but is not limited to, a countries tightening of credit conditions in order to dissuade speculators from shorting a currency versus another. The Bank of England in the early 1990’s raised short term interest rates to over 20% to dissuade currency speculators from selling Sterling against other currencies when the Pound Sterling came under pressure by speculators. In this situation, those who were short STG and long US Dollars were forced to rollover their spot positions at a large debit from one spot settlement date to the next. By doing so the Bank of England was attempting to dissuade currency speculators from selling STG over spot and rolling over the position from one day to the next. The action was intended to force those who were short STG, to cover their positions before the end of the day forcing an underlying bid into the currency. Year-end and quarter-end periods can also cause unusual spikes in short- term interest rates that may cause temporary spikes in rollover debits and credits. Customers acknowledge that there exists a rollover risk to currency positions. Milton will display the rollover debits or credits for the respective currencies pairs in the Milton application and automatically update Customer Reports to reflect the cash flow. Milton reserves the right to change the credits or debits at its sole discretion if the original amounts are in wrong due to an error or omission.

7) Sweep rates for currency balances other than USD are determined by Milton and may be independent of prices found elsewhere in the Interbank market. Profits that are calculated in a foreign currency are “swept” into dollars when the open positions are closed and the Profit and Loss realized. For example, if a Customer buys one (1) lot of USD/JPY at 115.00 and sells the same one (1) lot at 116.00, the realized profit on the transaction would be:

Since the realized profit is in Yen, the amount must be swept into US dollars by selling Yen and buying USD. If the exchange rate for the USD/JPY exchange rate is 116.05, the 100,000 Yen are converted and swept into USD at 116.05 creating a USD realized profit of $861.70 (100,000 / 116.05 = $861.70). When trading in currencies where the secondary currency is USD (i.e., EUR/USD and GBP/USD), the realized profit and loss is already stated in USD. As a result, the Profit or Loss does not have to be swept. There is No Guarantee of Profit from Trading with Milton: Customer acknowledges that neither Milton nor any of its representatives guarantees to the Customer that they will profit from trading or investing in FX. Customer further acknowledges that they could sustain the loss of their entire Risk Capital deposited in their Account and are financially able to withstand any losses incurred.

8) There is No Guarantee that Milton will be able to execute stop loss orders, limit orders or OCO Orders at the Customer Entered Price. Customer acknowledges and agrees that there may be market, liquidity or other conditions that will prevent Milton from executing Customers specific Stop Loss Orders, Limit Orders or OCO Orders at the Customer designated price. In some cases the orders will be executed at prices that are less favorable to the price entered and desired by the Customer. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that they are still responsible for trades executed at levels different from their orders and that Milton is not liable for failure to do so.

9) There is technology risk inherent in trading online or via a software application. Although Milton has invested a lot of resources developing, testing, configuring and integrating the Trading Platform and other relevant software and hardware, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that Milton does not guarantee that the Customer will be able to successful execute transaction, monitor their positions, or perform other essential tasks of Milton while using the public Internet and other technology from Milton or from third party vendors known or not known for which Milton may rely on. Milton cannot control, without limitation, the routing, Internet connectivity, reliability of customer or Milton equipment, network connections or any other technology hardware malfunction caused by Milton hardware, hardware and connectivity that makes up the public Internet, or hardware at the Customers location. Nor does Milton guarantee, although all effort has been made to the contrary, that the Trading Platform and Associated Back Office and Broker Software Interfaces nor any other code or application including but not limited to the interface with Milton liquidity provider(s) or the interface with the escrow Account institution or other technology application that would come under the heading software, are error-free and would not lead to communications problems, computer software or hardware breakdowns, malfunctioning errors, and any and all problems or glitches associated with computer problems or any other technical cause or causes . Customer acknowledges and agrees that Milton provides Trading Platform and Associated Back Office and Broker Software Interfaces “as is,” without any warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or other express or implied warranties.

PAYMENTS AND REFUND POLICY

Milton and all its sites use several Merchant Solutions(“Merchant Solutions”) for online payment, order processing, order delivery, and other merchant solutions. Billing occurs at the time of or shortly after your transaction. If a credit card is being used for a transaction, Milton may obtain preapproval for an amount up to the amount of the order. You agree that you will pay for all products you purchase through the Merchant Solutions, and that Milton may charge your credit card for any products purchased. Review our Merchant Solutions Terms and Conditions below:

NETELLER: https://www.neteller.com/en_us/policies/terms-of-use
Skrill: https://www.neteller.com/en_us/policies/terms-of-use
Allied Wallet: https://www.neteller.com/en_us/policies/terms-of-use

All sales of products are final. Fees paid for products and services are non-refundable. Prices for products offered via the Merchant Solutions may change at any time, and the Merchant Solutions does not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering.

If a product becomes unavailable following a transaction but prior to download, your sole remedy is a refund. If technical problems prevent or unreasonably delay delivery of your product, your exclusive and sole remedy is either replacement or refund of the price paid, as determined by Milton.

Risk Disclosure

Trading foreign exchange, Contracts for Differences or Binary Options (hereinafter referred to as “Products”) carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for everyone. You should analyze your financial objectives, risk tolerance, financial status, investment constraints and tax liability to determine whether trading these Products is suitable for you. These Products involve different levels of exposure to risk and, in deciding whether to trade in such instruments, you should be aware of the following points:

Trading these Products involves a high amount of risk, is highly speculative and may result in losses of your entire investment. Losses, in some cases, have the potential to extend beyond the Customer’s Account Value.
Excessive leverage available with these Products can lead to losses due to price changes. Prices can move quickly, particularly at times of high market volatility, and if these price movements are unfavorable to your trades, you can quickly build up significant losses.

Margin policies require that your Account be properly margined at all times. Failure to meet margin requirements may result in the liquidation of any open positions with a resultant loss for which you will be liable.

These Products carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the Product so that transactions are “leveraged” or “geared”. A relatively small market movement may have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit. This may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with Milton to maintain your position.

Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “limit” orders, particularly in volatile market conditions, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. Strategies using combinations of positions, such as “spread” and “straddle” positions may be as risky as taking simple “long” or “short” positions.

Certain Products experience periods of liquidity risk. This usually due to unanticipated changes in economic and/or political conditions or those outside of Milton’s control.

When liquidity decreases, customer spreads may be increased. Decreases in liquidity can also result in “Fast Market” conditions where the price of an instrument moves sharply higher or lower or in a volatile up/down pattern without trading in an ordinary step-like fashion. In some instances (i.e. when there is no liquidity) a trading bid and/or ask price for an instrument is unavailable.

Trading at times of extraordinarily volatile market conditions, e.g. key news announcements may expose you to additional risks, including the risk that you may not get the price requested. Milton cannot and does not guarantee its prices in times of extraordinary market volatility.

There is no clearinghouse for CFDs, and the performance of a CFD by Milton is not ‘guaranteed’ by an exchange or clearing house. Milton may decide to exit the business. As a result, Milton may liquidate all your positions, and return margined funds to you at the sole discretion of Milton, at any time and for any reason.

Volatile Market Conditions:

Markets can be highly volatile. A Products value may fluctuate rapidly at times of extraordinarily volatile market conditions. Such conditions are often unforeseeable and are not controlled by you or Milton.

Advice:

We will not provide you with personal financial Product advice relating our Products and we will not make recommendations of any kind. All Market Recommendations made by Milton or any representative of Milton are for informational purposes only. Any decision by the Customer to trade in any of these Products is an independent decision by the Customer. Milton and its employees are not investment advisors and have no fiduciary duty to you and therefore are not liable for any losses incurred by you as a result of information or any recommendations made by Milton or representative of Milton.

Your decision to enter into any transaction is based on your own judgment. Milton is not liable for any losses, costs, expenses, or damages suffered by customer arising from any inaccuracy or mistake in any information we give you.

Internet Trading Systems:

Trading on an electronic trading system may differ not only from trading in an open-outcry market but also from trading on other electronic trading systems. If you undertake transactions on an electronic trading system, you will be exposed to risks associated with the system including any failure of hardware and software. The result of any system failure may be that your order is either not executed according to your instructions or not executed at all. Since Milton does not control signal power, its reception or routing via Internet, configuration of your equipment or reliability of its connection, Milton is not responsible for communication failures, distortions or delays when trading on the Internet. In no event shall Milton be liable for speculative or expectancy damages for potential future lost profits.

Simulated Conditions on Demo Accounts:

Simulated conditions on demo accounts may differ from real conditions. Therefore, Customers who trade on demo Accounts should not necessarily expect the same results from live trading.
