Terms and Conditions
This Brief Notice Does Not Disclose All of the Risks and Other Significant Aspects of Forex or CFDs on Margin.
Trading in Forex or CFDs is not suitable for many members of the public. You should carefully consider whether trading is appropriate for you in light of your experience, objectives, financial resources and other relevant circumstances. In light of the risks, you should undertake such transactions only if you (the “Client”) understand the nature of the trading into which you are about to engage and the extent of your exposure to risk.
This Agreement describes the terms, conditions and risks applicable to customer use of our services available under the domain and sub domains of www.Gsimarkets.com (the "Site" or "Web site") Registration: Gsimarkets.com is operated and owned by Media Force Limited (referred in this agreement as "the Company", Trust Company Complex, Ajeltake Road, Ajeltake Island, Majuro, Republic of the Marshall Islands, MH 96960). If you have any questions regarding this Agreement please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The high degree of leverage available, can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in Forex or CFDs you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite and other circumstances. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You may be liable for losses that exceed the amount of margin that you post.
Trading is very Speculative and Risky
Forex and CFDs are highly speculative and are suitable only for those Clients who (a) understand and are willing to assume the economic, legal and other risks involved, and (b) are financially able to assume losses significantly in excess of margin or deposits. Forex and CFDs are not an appropriate investment for retirement funds. Client represents, warrants and agrees that Client understands these risks; that Client is willing and able, financially and otherwise, to assume the risks of Forex and CFDs and that loss of Client’s entire account balance will not change Client’s life style.
Terms and Conditions of Contracts
You should familiarise yourself about the terms and conditions of the specific instruments which you are trading and associated obligations.
High Leverage and Low Margin Can Lead to Quick Losses
The high leverage and low margin associated with Forex or CFDs can result in significant losses due to price changes in the contracts. The amount of initial margin may be small relative to the value of the contract 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 us to maintain your position. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the time prescribed, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit. Clients must maintain the minimum margin requirement on their open positions at all times. It is the customer’s responsibility to monitor his/her account(s) balance. We have the right to liquidate any or all open positions whenever the minimum margin requirement is not maintained.
Risk Reducing Orders or Strategies
The placing of certain orders (i.e. “stop-loss” orders, where permitted under local law, or “stop-limit” orders), which are intended to limit losses to certain amounts, may not be effective because 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.
Prices, Margin and Valuations are set by us and may be different from prices reported elsewhere
GSI Markets will provide prices to be used in trading, valuation of Client positions and determination of margin requirements. Prices reported by us may vary from prices available to banks and other participants in what is known as the interbank market. We will exercise considerable discretion in setting and collecting margin. We are authorised to convert funds in the Client’s account for margin into and from such foreign currency at a rate of exchange determined by us in our sole discretion on the basis of then-prevailing money market rates.
Market Recommendations are Informational, Customer Makes Independent Decisions, and we are not an Adviser or a Fiduciary to Customer
The market recommendations that we provide do not constitute an offer to buy or sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy or sell, any contracts. Each decision by the Client to enter into a contract or other transaction with us and each decision whether a contract or other transaction is appropriate or proper for the Client is an independent decision by the Client. We are not acting as an advisor or serving as a fiduciary to the Client. The Client agrees that GSI Markets has no fiduciary duty to Client and no liability in connection with and is not responsible for any liabilities, claims, damages, costs and expenses, including attorneys fees, incurred in connection with the Client following our trading recommendations: taking or not taking any action based upon any recommendation or information provided by us.
There are risks associated with utilising an Internet-based deal execution trading system including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software and Internet connection. Since we do not control signal power, its reception or routing via the Internet, configuration of the Client’s equipment or reliability of its connection, we shall not be liable for any claims, losses, damages, loss of profits, special or consequential damages, cost of procurement of substitute goods or services, costs or expenses, including attorneys fees, caused, directly or indirectly, by any breakdown or failure of any transmission or communication system or computer facility or trading software, whether belonging to us, the Client, any market, or any settlement or clearing system when the Client trades online (via the Internet). In addition, we are not responsible for the breach of any Internet security with respect to your account. We have no liability or duty of indemnification related to unusable data, lost or corrupt Client transactions or data, by whatever means, in whatever form, resulting in part or in whole from third-party software or networking goods or services or from internet related problems or from actions or events outside of our control.
GSI Markets is not responsible for disruption, failure or malfunction of telephone lines.
Should a quoting error occur or a misquote given by telephone and/or electronic means (including responses to Client requests), we are not liable for any resulting errors in account balances and reserve the right to make necessary corrections or adjustments on the account involved. Any dispute arising from such quoting errors will be resolved on the basis of the fair market value, as determined by us in our sole discretion of the relevant currency and/or underlying at the time such an error occurred. In cases where the prevailing market represents prices different from the prices we have posted on our screen, we will attempt on a best efforts basis to execute trades on or close to the prevailing market prices. These prevailing market prices will be the prices which are ultimately reflected on the customer statements. This may or may not adversely affect customer realised and unrealised gains and losses.
There is No Central Market or Clearinghouse Guarantee of Payment
Forex or CFDs with GSI Markets is not conducted on a regulated market or exchange. Each contract is a contract directly between us and the Client. There is no clearinghouse and no guarantee by any other party of our payment obligations to the Client. The Client must look only to us for performance on all contracts in the Client’s account and for return of any margin or collateral. Our insolvency or a default by us could cause Client to lose the value of its account and to suffer additional losses from open positions.
No Guarantees of Profit
There are no guarantees of profit or freedom from loss in Forex and CFDs. The Client has received no such guarantees from us or from any of our representatives. The Client is aware of the risks inherent in Forex and CFDs and is financially able to bear such risks and withstand any losses incurred.
Commission, Conversions and other charges
Before you begin to trade, you should obtain a clear explanation of all commission, fees and other charges for which you will be liable. You should be aware that profit and loss in trading Forex and CFD contracts (whether they are traded in your own or another jurisdiction) will be affected by fluctuations in currency rates where there is a need to convert from the currency denomination of the contract to another currency. These charges will affect your net profit (if any) or increase your loss.

In some, but not all, jurisdictions, property, which has been specifically identifiable as your own, will be pro-rated in the same manner as cash for purposes of distribution in the event of a shortfall.
Third Party Agents
In the event that the Client grants trading authority or control over the Client’s account to a third party ( known as the “Trading Agent”), whether on a discretionary or non-discretionary basis, we shall in no way be responsible for reviewing the Client’s choice of such Trading Agent or for making any recommendations with respect thereto.
