Warning: Risks of Margin Trading

Trading in Foreign Exchange and Bullion, particularly Margin Trading, involves the potential upside for profit-making as well as the downside risk of loss-making which may vastly exceed the amount of money you commit to any trade(s) or transaction(s). Movements in the price of Foreign Exchange or Bullion rates will be influenced by a variety of factors of global origin. Many of which are unpredictable. Violent movements in the price of Foreign Exchange or Bullion rates may result in action by the market as a result of which you may be unable to settle adverse trades. Staff of HMA are unable to guarantee the accuracy of any market predictions (should they offer such predictions) and cannot guarantee a maximum loss that you may suffer.

Warning: General Advice

Any general advice provided by HMA, on its website or via its trading platform, does not take into account regarding your financial situation, personal objectives or needs. Before using any of HMA’s services, you should obtain and read its   Product Disclosure Statement  carefully, then consider your objectives, financial situation and needs and take all reasonable steps to fully understand the possible outcomes of trades and strategies that can be employed using the HMA trading platform. You should seek independent financial advice to ensure that a particular product is best suited to your financial situation and requirements.

Warning: Leveraged FX

HMA manages its client Leveraged FX positions by means of an Intelligence Pricing System (IPS) provided by Currenex which generates HMA’s dealing price stream for client trading by aggregating all executable streaming prices from its trading counterparties so that designated high risk client positions can be hedged back-to-back in the interbank market by means of Straight Through Processing (STP). Positions will also be off-loaded to counterparties automatically once preset risk limits are triggered. The automatic position management system allows us to determine the maximum position, maximum loss, maximum risks per trade size on a currency pair basis.

Overall Position Risk Management

The Risk Management Department in Hong Kong (Head Office) is responsible for setting trading limits for all Dealing Rooms within the Group including HMA, subject to approval by the Group’s Executive and Risk Management Committee.

Trading limits are determined according to:
i) financial capacity of each subsidiary;
ii) experience of the dealer; and,
iii) market scenarios such as directions and volatility.

Manned by at least 2 staff at all times, the Risk Management Department has access to all trading platforms as well as back office systems to monitor the preset limits. It compiles a Group Daily Report which is based on the trade reports submitted by the dealing department. These reports are circulated to the Group’s Managing Director.
