Terms and Conditions
Trading CFDs carries significant risk and is not suitable for all investors. You may lose more than you invest and you do not own, or have any interest in, the underlying asset. This is not an invitation to invest nor is it a recommendation to buy or sell investments.
We recommend that you seek independent advice and ensure you fully understand the risks involved before trading. Please consider the Financial Service Guide, Privacy Statements and Website Terms and Conditions.
1. ACY does not provide any personal advice
We only provide general product information. Therefore, before you apply for an account, you must consider your investment objectives, financial situation, and needs, as well as trading margin foreign exchange and CFD contain high-risk. We recommend that you read our Product Disclosure Statement and Financial Services Guide carefully, and consult your independent financial adviser, tax adviser, and other professional advisers. We cannot guarantee the results of your trading.
2. Underlying Assets
When you trade margin Forex and CFDs, your profits or losses depend on a rise or fall in the price of the underlying product. You need to know that you do not have any interest in the underlying forex, indices, and commodities. You are trading CFDs based on price fluctuation. There is no physical exchange or commodity trading. CFDs are financial derivative product.
3. Over-the-Counter (OTC) Financial Derivatives
When you open a trade on our platform, you are in the OTC derivative contract, and orders cannot be transferred. This means that you are dealing directly with us, and these trades (positions) can only be closed with us. In other words, foreign exchange and CFD contracts are issued by ACY, not through any exchanges, such as the US Stock Exchange. ACY is your product issuer.
When trading FX, you only need a small margin to open a position. For example, if you trade AUD/USD with a value of $10,000 and a margin ratio of 0.5%, then you only need $50 to open a position. However, your risk in the market is $10,000. If your position gained 10%, you will earn $1,000. If you lose 10% of your position, you lose $1,000. The profit or loss of your trading depends on the size of the positions you open. ACY’s leverage is provided by the liquidity banks, so ACY reserves the right to adjust leverage at our own discretion.
Execution prices are based on the prices provided by our liquidity banks. The price of your trading products may fluctuate rapidly due to financial market news. Any changes in prices and spreads will have a direct impact on your account funds and positions. Price fluctuations can lead to a common phenomenon called gapping, which occurred when opening price hugely differ from its closing price. Gapping caused by an unexpected economic event or a market announcement, especially when such information occurs outside the trading hours. Therefore, you may not have the opportunity to open or close positions between the two prices. The platform will execute your order at the next closest market price. You must bear the risk of a price gap, and your loss may exceed your account’s net worth, which may cause your account go into negative balance.You have the responsibility to avoid negative account balance. ACY reserves the right to take further actions to recover the negative amount.
Slippage is also a risk that traders will face during trading. It is the result of rapid price fluctuations, the actual executed price of your trade differ from your pre-set execution price. ACY implements straight through processing (STP) model, and all the orders are executed at the price provided by our clearing banks, so traders must understand slippage can occur in foreign exchange trading. In addition, your pending orders (including pending order for new trades or pending order to close existing trades) price is for reference only, and the final traded price is the bank’s actual execution price. You need to understand that in a fast-moving market, the actual result of a pending order may differ from your pre-set execution price.
At any time, the existing funds in your account must remain above the mandatory liquidation level (the margin level must be above 50%), otherwise your open positions will be closed. However, please do not rely entirely on the system’s liquidation order. It is your responsibility to manage your positions, account balances and account equity on your trading platform. To prevent a mandatory liquidation, you should have sufficient funds in your account. Note that even if the money you deposited earlier was sufficient at that time, it could quickly become inadequate due to the fast movement in the market. In addition, in the case of rapid market fluctuations, the hedging trades (locked positions) will also trigger mandatory liquidation. Traders should only open appropriate positions based on their available fund.
When you open an account with us and open a margin position, you enter into a CFD contract, we are your trading counterparty. That means we may not be able to fulfill our contractual obligations under unexpected circumstances, because of we or our own trading partners (such as our hedging providers) default. Under the impact of uncontrollable factors, we cannot guarantee the execution of your trading contract. In addition, if your trading methods and trading strategies that are against our risk control policies, we have the right to cancel your completed trades including your trading profits and agent commissions.
9.Client financial risk

10.Technical risk and other circumstances that affect your transaction
Some circumstances may prevent you from executing orders or from logging into our trading platform or instantly deposit funds into your account. This includes system errors or termination of supply, platform maintenance, network connectivity issues, or some third-party failures (such as network vendors, power companies and payment providers) that you or we cannot control. We have an emergency solution on these issues, but sometimes you may still not able to enter the trading platform or deposit funds electronically.
