Q. What is notional capital?


A. With notional capital we trade the program exactly as we would if you fully funded a $50,000 account but had actually only funded say $25,000 with balance being considered notional.

Q. How much margin do you actually use?


A. Typically requirements are relatively low, often much less than 10% but on occasions it could potentially be around the 30% level based on current overnight requirements. Margin requirements do change and we suggest keeping 50% of the minimum capital available to allow for margin and draw downs.

Q. Do we need to use a specific broker or clearing firm?


A. An account may be traded at most clearing firms by using a give up arrangement. We normally block trade for all customers initially and the clearing firm allocates the trades to the individual accounts. For the Forex program please contact us for more informationon what firms the program can be traded at.

Q. Is this a high risk investment?


A. We are actively trading futures contracts which are leveraged instruments and on a speculative basis. There are a number of risks relating to this. You should only allocate risk capital to trading. This is not suitable for all investors. Please read our disclosure document for more information.
