Risk Disclosure Statement
Margined currency trading is an extremely risky form of investment and is only suitable for individuals and institutions capable of handling the potential losses it entails. An account with Capital Market Services LLC allows you to trade foreign currencies on a highly leveraged basis (up to about 400 times your account equity). The funds in an account that is being traded at maximum leverage may be completely lost if the position(s) held in the account experiences even a one percent swing in value. For example, if one chooses to leverage up to the maximum 400 times account equity, then a margin of $1,000 may control an investment of $400,000. While a 1% upward swing of the positions held in the account may multiply into a $4,000 profit, a 1% downward swing multiplies into a $4,000 loss, i.e. greater than the initial investment. Thus, an account could lose more than the equity it contains. Given the possibility of losing one's entire investment, speculation in the foreign exchange market should o
nly be conducted with risk capital that, if lost, will not significantly affect the investor’s financial well-being.
Market Opinions of Our Staff
Opinions expressed by our company's representatives regarding the prices of specific currencies and the direction they will take in the future do not necessarily represent the opinion of Capital Market Services LLC, and are not guaranteed in any way.

Accuracy of Information
Capital Market Services LLC makes its best effort to keep the information on its website as current and accurate as possible. However, Capital Market Services LLC still cannot guarantee the accuracy of said materials. No single source of information, including the website of Capital Market Services LLC, should be used as the sole basis for any financial decision. We will not accept liability for any loss or damage which may arise directly or indirectly from the content or your inability to access the website, nor for any delay in or failure of the transmission or the receipt of any instruction or notifications sent through this website.
Internet Trading Risks
Furthermore, there are risks associated with utilizing an Internet-based deal execution trading system including, but not limited to, hardware malfunction, software failure, and Internet connection problems. Because Capital Market Services LLC does not control signal power, reception or routing via Internet, the configuration of your equipment or the reliability of its connection, we cannot be responsible for communication failures, distortions or delays you may experience while trading via the Internet. Capital Market Services LLC employs back-up systems and contingency plans to minimize the possibility of system failure.
Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” orders, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions, which can become extraordinarily volatile, may make it impossible to execute such orders. All positions involve risk, and strategies using combinations of positions, such as “spread” and “straddle” positions, may be as risky as taking simple “long” or “short” positions.
CMS is in no way responsible for any outcome of a client using his own money manager to trade an account on his behalf.

Money managers are not CMS employees, and simply use the CMS dealing desk for execution.
