If we decline an instruction we will take reasonable steps to notify you promptly of this but subject to this will not be liable for any failure to accept or act on such instructions

 

6. Dealing Instructions

6.1 You will be dealing with us on an execution-only basis in reliance solely on your own judgment. In this regard you should bear in mind that if we merely explain the terms of an investment or its performance characteristics this does not of itself amount to advice on the merits of a transaction in the investment or on the legal, accounting or tax status or consequences.

6.2 You acknowledge that we may at our discretion, decide to require your Instructions to be submitted via our online system. We cannot be expected to act upon instructions until receipt thereof – it is your responsibility to ensure proper receipt of clear and unambiguous instructions.

6.3 We may acknowledge your instructions by such means as we consider appropriate whether orally, in writing, by actual performance or otherwise.

6.4 You shall promptly (and in any event within any reasonable time limit imposed by us) give any instructions we may reasonably request from you in respect of any transactions or other matters in relation to which we have accepted your instructions to act. If you do not do so, we may in our sole, but reasonable, discretion take any steps at your cost which we consider appropriate for our or for your protection.

7. Dealing

We may execute your dealing instructions upon or in accordance with the rules of any market or exchange and through any clearing house selected by us. We may enter into transactions for or with you which are not on or in accordance with the rules of any exchange for example, off-exchange transactions in foreign currencies, or in other non-readily realisable investments.

7.1 Assets and profits arising on closing a position, settlement or liquidation will be credited to your Account and losses will be debited from your Account. Any debit balance arising as a result of any close-out, settlement or liquidation will be payable by you forthwith whether or not demanded by us.

7.2 We shall be entitled to carry out all transactions in accordance with the rules, regulations, customs or practices of the relevant market, exchange and / or clearing house and all applicable laws whether imposed on you or us. We may take all such steps as may be required or permitted by such laws, rules, regulations, customs and / or market practice. We will be entitled to take or not take any reasonable action we consider fit in order to ensure compliance with the same and all such actions so taken will be binding upon you.

7.3 You agree that any transactions we effect for you will be subject to the rules, regulations, customs and practices of each relevant market, exchange, or clearing house on, through or with which we deal.

7.4 In order to give effect to your dealing instructions, we may at our discretion instruct an intermediate broker selected by us (which may be an Associate of ours). We accept full liability for any default by an intermediate broker which is our Associate, and undertake to use reasonable care and skill in the appointment and supervision of any intermediate broker and to make available to you and take, at your cost and expense, such action on your behalf as you may reasonably request in relation to any rights we have against such intermediate broker. Subject to this we accept no liability for any default of any intermediate broker nor do we accept any liability in relation to the default of any market, exchange or clearing house.

7.5 In executing transactions for or with you we will always deal with you as principal. While we will take reasonable steps to obtain the best price available you agree and acknowledge that save as required by the FCA Rules we are under no obligation to provide you with best execution in accordance with the FCA Rules and you hereby waive any such requirements.

7.6 We may at our discretion aggregate your orders with our own orders or those of other clients of ours or our Associates. We will allocate the proceeds of such orders among the participating accounts in a manner which we believe to be fair and equitable. If the combined order is not executed at the same price we may average the prices paid or received and debit or credit your Account with the average net price. Details of average price will be furnished on request. Such allocation must take place within five business days of execution. In aggregating your orders in this way we must reasonably believe this will be to your advantage, for instance to obtain better execution or reduced foreign exchange or other dealing costs by being part of a larger transaction. However, on occasion, aggregation and allocation may result in you obtaining a less favourable price.

7.7 Where we are unable or consider it undesirable or inappropriate to execute your order at once or in a single transaction we may execute it over such period as we deem appropriate and we may report to you an average price for a series of transactions so executed instead of the actual price of each transaction.

7.8 We may undertake a program trade or trades comprising a single transaction or series of transactions on your behalf. In doing so we will always act as principal.

7.9 We reserve the right to refuse any trades placed by you that we judge to be clearly outside the prevailing market price such that they may be deemed non-market price transactions, whether due to manifest human error or stale, incorrect or broken price feeds. Where we have opened or closed a trade before becoming aware of the price disparity, we may at our absolute discretion either treat that trade as void or accept that trade at the prevailing market price.

7.10 We are a market maker and may quote prices at which we are prepared to deal with our clients and such prices may or may not replicate the prices quoted and traded by other companies and / or their customers. As a client of ours you hereby accept that the prices quoted by other companies may not be relied upon by you in respect of your account with us and that we reserve the right to decline any quote or refuse to be bound to any contract, including those arising from any manipulation of the quoting mechanism or our services generally, notwithstanding our undertaking to provide a clear and fair service to you at all times.

8. Reporting Transactions

We will send out an electronic confirmation in respect of each transaction as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event within the time required by the FCA Rules.

8.1 After executing a trade which closes out an open position your confirmation will include a difference account, showing your profit or loss arising from the closing out which will be credited to or debited from your Account and due for immediate settlement.

8.2 If we have instructed an intermediate broker on your behalf, the confirmation may be a copy of the confirmation sent to us by the intermediate broker. Confirmations posted, electronically transmitted or otherwise sent to you at your last known address, email address or fax number in our records will be deemed to have been received by you when sent to the relevant address.

8.3 Unless otherwise agreed we will send you a monthly statement of every account comprised in your Account which includes or may include uncovered open positions. Performance measurement will not be provided other than by special arrangement. The statement shall include details of the contents and value of your Account and open positions and such other information as may be agreed from time to time by us or as is required to be disclosed under the FCA Rules.

8.4 Any confirmation, statement of account, report or certificate issued by us in respect of any transaction or other matter shall be conclusive and binding on you unless objection in writing is received by us within two Business Days of the actual or deemed delivery date. Occasionally (whether due to human or technical errors), discrepancies may occur in our confirmations, statements of account, reports or certificates. Provided that we advise you of such errors and / or discrepancies as soon as practical you will be bound by the relevant confirmation, statement of account, report or certificate (as so corrected) irrespective of when the relevant error or discrepancy is discovered by us.

9. Margin

You will provide to us on demand such sums by way of margin as we may in our discretion require for the purpose of protecting ourselves against loss or risk of loss on present, future or contemplated transactions under this Agreement. Different margin requirements may apply to different accounts and / or investments traded. You may be required by us to supplement such margin at any time when your Account shows a debit balance or an increase in your margin requirement. You will pay or transfer margin within the minimum period specified by us (which may be within the same Business Day).

9.1 Margin in relation to a particular type of transaction will be provided in cash or in the form of such investments or other assets (if any) we may in our absolute discretion agree. Where we agree to accept margin in the form of securities this is subject to the Security and custody arrangements described in clauses 13 and 14.

9.2 Unless the terms applying to a particular type of transaction otherwise specify, margin will be valued by us on such basis as we shall in our absolute discretion determine and may reflect, without limitation, our view as to the extent that the relevant assets are fully available to us or such discount to the current market value of any margin as reflects our perception of the market risk of that margin.

9.3 While failure to pay margin when required will entitle us to close out some or all of your positions and / or call an Event of Default we are under no obligation to close out any transactions or take any other action in respect of positions opened or acquired on your instructions and in particular, no failure by you to pay margin when demanded will require us to close out any such transaction.

9.4 All cash margin and other payments due by you to us pursuant to this Agreement shall be made in freely transferable funds in such currency and to such bank account(s) as we specify. If you are by law required to make any deduction or withholding in respect of taxes or otherwise, then you will be liable to pay such amount to us as will result in our receiving a net amount equal to the full amount which would have been received had no such deduction or withholding been required.
9.5 Any sums due to us from you pursuant to this Agreement (plus any applicable VAT) may be deducted without prior notice to you from any Assets and we may have recourse against and sell realise or dispose of the Assets (including any margin collateral and safe custody assets) in order to realise proceeds which may be applied in the discharge of such sums.

In relation to your open positions you will promptly take all actions on or prior to maturity, which are necessary either:

10.1.1 To close out or otherwise liquidate such contracts by giving proper instructions in good time to enable us to carry out those instructions in accordance with their terms and the requirements of the relevant contract and of any relevant market, exchange, clearing house or intermediate broker; or

10.4 If any payment, instruction, documents or delivery is not received or is incomplete or incorrect when received we may without notice close out or liquidate the transaction or buy in on the market or make or receive payment or delivery in order to meet our or your performance obligations or take such other action as we in our absolute discretion may consider appropriate.

  1. This clause applies to Retail Clients only.
  2. Any money received by us in respect of your Account shall be treated as Client Money in accordance with the FCA’s Client Money Rules.
  3. Any money you transfer to us or which is transferred to us on your behalf being Client Money will be held with a bank or third party nominated by us in our sole discretion, acting reasonably and considering the relevant provisions in Rules 7.4.7 and 7.4.8 of the Client Money Rules, which may from time to time be an authorised bank registered outside of the UK or the EEA. Your money will be segregated from our own money in accordance with the requirements of the Client Money Rules and in the event of our insolvency, it will be excluded from our assets subject at all times to the relevant legislation and regulatory provisions.
  4. Where monies are held outside of the UK, the legal and regulatory regime applying to any such bank or third party may be different from that of the UK and in the event of the insolvency or any other equivalent failure of that bank or third party, your money may not be as effectively protected as if your money is held with an equivalent bank or third party in the UK.
  5. We will not be liable for the failure or insolvency of any bank or third party holding Client Money however, if your money is held within an EEA country, a proportion of your cash balance may qualify for compensation arrangements in that jurisdiction, subject to the rules of that jurisdiction.
  6. Your money may be held in a different currency from that of its receipt and will be adjusted each day to an amount at least equal to the original currency amount, translated at the previous day’s closing spot exchange rate.
  7. You will not be entitled to interest on any Client Money held with us, unless we expressly agree otherwise with you in writing.
  8. (12.1.8) Unless you notify us in writing or otherwise, we may pass on Client Money or allow another person such as an exchange, a clearing house or an intermediate broker, to hold or control Client Money where we transfer the Client Money:
    (a)  For the purposes of a transaction for you through or with that person; or
    (b)  To meet your obligations to provide Margin for a transaction.
  9. (12.1.9) You hereby agree to us releasing any Client Money balances, for or on your behalf, from client bank accounts and to us ceasing to treat any unclaimed Client Money in your Account as Client Money where:
    (a)  We have determined, acting in our reasonable sole discretion, that there has been no movement on your balance for a period of six years (notwithstanding any payments or receipts of charges, interest or similar items); and
    (b)  We have written to you at your last known address       informing you of our intention of no longer treating that balance as Client Money, giving you 28 days to make a claim, provided we:
    (i)  Shall make and retain records of all balances released from your client bank account; and
    (ii)  Undertake to make good any valid claims against any released balances.

12.2 Professional Clients or Eligible Counterparties

  1. This clause applies only if you have been classified by us as a Professional Client or Eligible Counterparty following the completion by you of the Personal Trading Account Application Form.
  2. Our services to you under this Agreement are provided on the understanding that you do not require money which is transferred by you to us to be held in accordance with the Client Money Rules. Accordingly, the protections conferred by the Client Money Rules will not apply to you. Where you transfer money to us, we will treat this as a transfer of full ownership of money to us for the purpose of securing or covering your present, future, actual, contingent or prospective obligations, and we will not hold such money in accordance with the Client Money Rules. Any money received by us from you or a third party for your Account will be owed by us to you and you will rank only as a general creditor of OneTrade.
  3. The Client Money Rules do not apply to Professional Clients or Eligible Counterparties. You will therefore not have a proprietary claim over money transferred to us, and we can deal with it in our own right. Your money will not be segregated from our money and it may be used by us in the course of our business. We will transfer an equivalent amount of money back to you where, in our discretion, we consider that the amount of money you have transferred to us is more than is necessary to cover your present and future obligations to us. In determining the amount of Collateral and the amount of our obligations to you, we may apply such methodology (including judgements as to the future movement of markets and values), as we consider appropriate, consistent with the FCA Rules and the Client Money Rules.
  1. By completing the Personal Trading Account Application Form, you are providing us with written acknowledgement that you understand the information above and that you consent to your monies not being conferred the protections of the Client Money Rules.

13. Charged Assets

13.3 We shall hold all Charged Assets for the purpose of satisfying all and any of your Obligations under this Agreement and may without prior notice to you free of any interest of yours therein:

  1. Deposit, charge or pledge Charged Assets with or to the order of any exchange, market operator, clearing house, intermediate broker or other third party and on terms that such third party may enforce such deposit, charge or pledge in satisfaction of all or any Obligations, and all or any obligations of ours or of any other Client of ours, to such third party which may include the creation of a security interest over Charged Assets ranking prior to any security interest in Charged Assets from time to time granted by you to us; and

We may in our absolute discretion make payments or deliveries to you from Charged Assets, or otherwise exercise our rights of set-off, combination and / or consolidation.

13.5 No purchaser from, or other person dealing with, us shall be concerned to enquire whether any of the powers exercised or purported to be exercised has arisen or become exercisable, whether the Obligations remain outstanding or as to the propriety or validity of the exercise or purported exercise of any power; and the title of such a purchaser and the position of any such person shall not be impeachable by reference to any of those matters and the protections contained in Sections 104 to 107 of the Law of Property Act 1925 shall apply to any person purchasing from or dealing with us.

13.6 A certificate in writing by our officer or agent that any power of sale or other disposal has arisen and is exercisable shall be conclusive evidence of the fact in favour of a purchaser of the whole or any part of the Charged Assets.

13.7 You agree you shall (at your cost) from time to time on request execute documents and take such other acts and steps as we may require to perfect or preserve the Security and to create new or further security interests over the same, to facilitate the enforcement of any such security.

13.8 You hereby irrevocably appoint by way of security, us and any person from time to time nominated by us, as your attorney with full power of substitution for you and in your name and on your behalf and as your act and deed to execute documents and take such other acts and steps as may be required to facilitate the enforcement of the Security.

13.9 The Security is continuing and will extend to the ultimate balance of all the Obligations, regardless of any intermediate payment or discharge in whole or in part. The Security is additional to any other security, guarantee or indemnity now or subsequently held by us in respect of the Obligations and the Security is not in any way prejudiced by any other such security, guarantee or indemnity and shall remain in full force and effect until discharged by us.

13.10 Sections 93 (restriction of right of consolidation) and 103 (restriction of right of sale) of the Law of Property Act 1925 will not apply to this Agreement. The Obligations will become due for the purposes of Section 101 of the Law of Property Act 1925, and the statutory power of sale and of appointing a receiver which are conferred on us under such Act (as varied or extended by this Agreement) and all other powers shall be deemed to arise immediately after execution of this Agreement.

13.11 If we reasonably determine that any payment received or recovered by us may be avoided or invalidated after the Obligations have been discharged in full this Agreement (and the Security) will remain in full force and effect and we will not be obliged to release Charged Assets until the expiry of such period as we shall reasonably determine.

13.12 No payment which may be avoided or adjusted under any law, including any enactment relating to bankruptcy or insolvency, and no release, settlement or discharge given or made by us on the faith of any such assurance, security or payment, shall prejudice or affect our right to recover the Obligations from you or to enforce the Security to the full extent of the Obligations.

13.13 You will not create or have outstanding any mortgage, pledge, lien, hypothecation, security interest or other charge or encumbrance, or any other agreement or arrangement having the same economic effect, over or in respect of the present or future Charged Assets other than the Security or any other security contemplated under this clause 13.

14. Custody

We will provide you with a safe custody service in relation to any securities in accordance with the FCA Rules (which securities will for the avoidance of doubt also be subject to the Security). This safe custody service will not apply to securities credited to your Account where full legal and beneficial ownership has passed to us and we owe you only a contractual right to the return of equivalent securities in accordance with clause 14.14, including but not limited to any assets disposed of by us in whole or part under clause 13.3.

  1. The following provisions of this clause 14 will apply to securities held by us in safe custody.
  2. All securities purchased through us will be registered (except for bearer stocks) in the name of our nominee or the name of another custodian appointed by us unless otherwise required by you and indicated on the Client Application Form. We will account to you for all dividends, interest payments and other rights accruing to you. Bearer or other non-registered securities may not always be held by us directly but may be held by one or more third parties (including clearing systems; custodians and overseas agents) directly or indirectly, and may be held for its or their account.
  3. You should note that nominee account holders may not receive certain entitlements, such as annual report and accounts, nor attend annual (or other) meetings and vote at such meetings.
  4. Overseas securities may be registered or recorded in the name of a custodian or in our name (subject to your prior written consent) in one or more jurisdictions outside the United Kingdom where we determine that, due to legal requirements or the nature of market practice in the jurisdictions concerned, it is in your best interests or it is not feasible to do otherwise. As a consequence of this your securities may not be segregated from securities belonging to us and therefore your protection may be less should a default occur on the part of the person in whose name the investments are registered or recorded. Securities belonging to you which are held overseas may be subject to different settlement, legal and regulatory requirements from those which apply within the United Kingdom.
  5. We are responsible for the acts of our nominee to the same extent as for our own acts. We accept no liability for the default of any other nominees, custodians or third parties.
  6. Securities purchased through us may only be registered in the name of some other person whom you specify with our prior written consent. Where we consent to such an arrangement the consequences of such registration carried out in accordance with your instructions are entirely at your risk.
  7. Securities registered or recorded in the name of a nominee may be pooled with those of one or more of our other Clients. Accordingly your individual entitlements may not be identifiable by separate certificates, physical documents or entries on the register or equivalent electronic records. If there is an irreconcilable shortfall following any default or failure by the custodian responsible for pooled investments, you may not receive your full entitlement and may share in that shortfall pro-rata to your original share of the assets in the pool. When corporate events (such as partial redemptions) affect some but not all of the securities held in a pooled account we will allocate the securities so affected to particular Clients in such fair and equitable manner as we consider appropriate (which may without limitation involve pro rata allocation or an impartial lottery).
  8. We will provide you with information relating to your securities held by us by sending periodic statements no less often than every 6 months. Assets will be valued in accordance with general market practice or, subject to our prior agreement, in accordance with your instructions.
  9. We will collect any dividends, interest, payments or other entitlements to which you may be entitled in respect of safe custody securities and of which we are notified and will remit to you such dividends or interest as soon as possible after deduction of any taxes and duties payable or credit them to your account.
  10. Provided it is practical and expedient, we will endeavour to obtain your instructions for exercising or dealing with any of the
  11. following matters in relation to your securities of which we receive notice:
    14.11.1 Conversion or subscription rights;
    14.11.2 Takeovers or other offers or capital reorganisations; and
    14.11.3 Voting rights.
  12. The consequences of a failure on your part to provide instructions to us by any required time once notification of an event mentioned in clause 14.11 has been sent to you are your sole responsibility. If we are unable to obtain your instructions we will be under no obligation to take any action but may, in good faith and at our discretion and without any liability therefor, use our judgment and act as we think fit in relation to any rights and / or privileges attaching to any investments held on your behalf.
  13. Where we appoint a custodian for holding your investments it may be an Associate.
  14. Where you have a right to the return of any securities or other assets credited to your Account (whether or not they are subject to safe custody under the other provisions of this clause 14) we shall not be obliged to return the original securities or other assets delivered to us but merely to redeliver securities or other assets of the same type and nominal value and in case of securities of the same issuer.

 15. Risks Associated with the Services
