12.ORDER TYPES AND EXECTUION ELEMENTS
The Order Types and Execution Elements that constitute the Order Execution on the Company’s proprietary platforms and the third-party platforms provided by Metaquotes Software Inc. (hereinafter ‘MT4’) are described below. Where the text does not explicitly specify a platform then the text applies to all platforms.
13. MARKET ORDERS – DAY TRADING
These are orders to buy or sell a financial instrument at the current market rate.Proprietary platforms will provide the requested market rate for execution or reject the market order when a rapidly moving market causes the market rate requested for execution to be significantly different from the prevailing market rate. MT4 platforms will not reject market orders based on the difference between requested and executed rate. The executed rate can be different from the requested rate, if the requested market rate is no longer available due to a rapidly moving market. The difference between the executed rate and the requested rate can be either in favor or against the client. The Company does not manually intervene in any way.
Opening a market order on Proprietary platforms requires the Margin at Risk (also known as “Amount to Risk”) to be available for collection upfront. Once the trade is closed, the Margin at Risk is returned. MT4 platforms will not allow a market order to be opened if the Margin Level as calculated and shown within the terminal is or by executing the order will go below 100%.
A Client trading on Proprietary platforms has the ability to use the trading tool ‘dealCancellation’ and cancel a losing day trade within one hour, for a fee. The fee calculation is based on the realised volatility of the selected product and it is paid once the Client initiates a day trade order. The trade that used the trading tool ‘dealCancellation’ can be cancelled with zero P&L at any time before the expiration time and the Margin at Risk provided upfront for the trade will be returned to the account balance. The fee paid is non-refundable and the ‘dealCancellation’ cannot be renewed once it is expired or exercised.
These are orders to buy or sell a financial instrument at a pre-defined rate. A buy Limit Order requires the pre-defined rate to be lower than the current market rate, while a sell Limit Order requires the pre-defined rate to be higher than the current market rate. On Proprietary platforms, once the market rate reaches the pre-defined rate, the limit order is triggered, and a market order is executed at the pre-defined rate. On MT4 platforms, once the market rate reaches the pre-defined rate, the limit order is triggered, and a market order is executed at the next available rate.
Setting a Limit Order on Proprietary platforms requires the Margin at Risk to be available for collection upfront. If the Limit Order is cancelled, the Margin at Risk is returned. MT4 platforms will not allow the execution of Limit Order into a Market Order if the Margin Level as calculated and shown within the terminal is or by executing the order will go below 100%. In such a scenario the system will delete the Limit Order. In all other cases, in all platforms,once set a Limit Order will remain active until the client cancels it. This is known as Good ‘Til Cancelled (GTC).
These are orders to buy or sell a financial instrument at a pre-defined rate. A buy Stop Order requires the pre-defined rate to be higher than the current market rate, while a sell Stop Order requires the pre-defined rate to be lower than the current market rate. On Proprietary platforms, once the market rate reaches the pre-defined rate, the limit order is triggered, and a market order is executed at the pre-defined rate.
Setting a Stop Order on Proprietary platforms requires the Margin at Risk to be available for collection upfront. If the Stop Order is cancelled, the Margin at Risk is returned. MT4 platforms will not allow the execution of a Stop Order into a Market Order if the Margin Level as calculated and shown within the terminal is below 100%. In such a scenario the system will delete the Stop Order. In all other cases, in all platforms, once set a Stop Order will remain active until the client cancels it. This is known as Good ‘Til Cancelled (GTC).
These are orders to buy or sell at a Forward Rate in a future pre-defined date. The Forward Rate is derived from the current market rate and the Forward Points. The Forward Points are derived from the predefined future date, and the interest rate differential among the buying currency and the selling currency. The Forward Points can be either positive or negative.
The executed Forward Rate can be different from the requested Forward Rate, if the requested Forward Rate is no longer available due to a rapidly moving market. The difference between the executed Forward Rate and the requested Forward Rate can be either in favor or against the client. Forwards are only available on Proprietary platforms and they will be automatically rejected where the executed Forward Rate will be significantly different than the requested Forward Rate. The Company does not manually intervene in any way. Opening a Forward order requires the Margin at Risk to be available for collection upfront. Once the deal is closed, the Margin at Risk is returned.
17.VANILLA OPTIONS (EASY TRADE)
A bought Vanilla Option gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy (known as a ‘Call Option’) or sell (known as a ‘Put Option’) an underlying financial instrument at a predefined rate (known as the ‘Strike’) at a pre-defined date (known as the ‘Expiry’). When buying a Vanilla Option, the buyer pays the Premium for the abovementioned right on opening and this is collected from the account balance.
A sold Vanilla Option gives the seller the obligation and the buyer the right to buy (known as a ‘Call Option’) or sell (known as a ‘Put Option’) an underlying financial instrument at a predefined rate (known as the ‘Strike’) at a pre-defined date (known as the ‘Expiry’). When selling a Vanilla Option, the seller receives the Premium for the abovementioned obligation on opening and this is credited in the account balance. At the same time an Amount to Risk is collected, which acts as a Stop Loss and limits the maximum loss.
Order Execution Policy
An easyTrade deal is a bought Vanilla Option; where the buyer can buy (Up) a Call Option or sell (Down) a Put Option of an underlying financial instrument at a pre-defined rate and expiry time. When buying an easyTrade deal, the buyer pays the Premium (Risk) and this is collected from the account balance. At the closing of the deal, the Current Payout amount is returned in the account balance.
18.STOP LOSS & TAKE PROFIT ORDERS
A Stop Loss Order is a request to close an open trade when the market is moving against the trade at a pre-defined rate, while a Take Profit is a request to close an open trade when the market is moving in favor of the trade at a pre-defined rate.The execution of all Stop Loss Orders and all Take Profit Orders is guaranteed in all platforms.
In the Proprietary platform, the requested rate for Stop Loss and Take Profit is the same as the executed rate (no slippage). In the Non-Proprietary platform, Stop Loss and Take Profit Orders are executed at the prevailing market rate (subject to slippage).
When a deal is closed due to a Stop Out, it will be closed at the prevailing market rate.
Modification of the Stop Loss and Take Profit attached to market orders or forward orders are subject to the trading hours of each financial instrument. On proprietary platforms, Stop Loss on limit and stop orders cannot be modified, while Take Profit cannot be placed on stop orders.
MT4 accounts will trigger a Stop Out if their Margin Level (as calculated and shown in the MT4 Client Terminal) goes at and below 30%. The platform is designed to automatically start closing open trades, with the most unprofitable closed first. The platform will stop closing trades either when the Margin Level is brought back above 30% or when there are no open trades left. The Stop Out is a higher priority action than Stop Loss and Take Profit and will close each trade at the prevailing market rate instead of the predefined rates. In case the client balance goes negative after all positions close, the Company will cover the negative balance and will not request from Clients to cover the required amount.
20.STOP LOSS, TAKE PROFIT, LIMIT AND STOP ORDERS DISTANCE
In anticipation of amplified volatility, such as ahead of major announcements, or thin liquidity, such as the re-commencement of trading following a break (for instance, following the weekend or a holiday) the Company reserves the right to widen the distances it will allow Clients to set their Stop Loss, Take Profit, Limit and Stop Orders rate, without any prior noticeto Clients.
The definition of best possible result will vary as the Company must take into account the below execution factors and determine their importance;
• Price, is the Company’s quoted market rates at which the order is executed.
• Costs, are any additional charges that may be incurred in executing the order over and above Company’s normal charges.
• Speed of Execution, can be particularly important in fast moving markets.
• Likelihood of Execution and Settlement, the best price obtain does not have relevance if the Company cannot execute the order or if the transaction fail to be completed.
• Size, nature and any other considerations of the transaction, is the way the Company may execute an order with unusual characteristics (for instance, an order which is larger than the normal market size or has unusual features such as an extended or shortened expiry date).
Best Execution is determined based on the total amount paid to or by the client, including the price of the order and all expenses incurred which are related to the execution of the order; such as venue execution fees and any other fees paid to third parties for the execution of the order.
In the absence of specific instructions from you, we will balance the above-mentioned factors based on our professional experience and judgment in light of the available market information and market conditions at the appropriate time, and taking into account the following criteria:
• characteristics of the client including the categorization of the client as retail or professional,
• characteristics of the client’s Order,
• characteristics of the financial instrument that is the subject of that Order,
• characteristics of execution venues where that order can be covered.

These rates are being reviewed continuously in real time in order to ensure live feeding quotes are competitive and in line with the market (known as “on market”). They are calculated with reference to the rate of the relevant underlying financial instrument, which the Company obtains from third party independent reference sources.
The Company normally provides liquidity from its inter-group liquidity flow as the Company believes that this provides the best outcome for its clients. The Company has internal capabilities to assess the price quality offered by other venues and ensures that prices proposed to the client are aligned with market benchmarks. Further, the company has procedures in place to review regularly its independent data providers and check the fairness of the price proposed to the client.
The Company does not charge commission fees since they are incorporated into the offered spread quoted in Bid (at which client can sell) – Ask (at which client can buy) rates. The company applies a consistent pricing methodology at all times; in which the offered spread is a mark-up and mark-down from the mid-rates provided by the third party independent data provider.
24.TARDE COSTS (HIGH IMPORTANCE)
Overnight financing fees may apply for some types of financial instruments, and trades in these will be subject to ‘rolling fees’ if kept open overnight. Details on the daily financing fees are available for each financial instrument within each trading platform.
• For the Non-Proprietary Platforms (MT4 Platforms), rolling/renewal fees are charged only on weekdays at 00:00GMT, with triple fee on Wednesday (triple fee is on Friday only for Cryptocurrencies) and they are deducted from the Balance when the position is closing.
• For the Proprietary Platforms, rolling/renewal fees are imposed only to Day Trading Deals which are automatically renewed every night at 22:00 GMT. In case the account balance has insufficient balance, the renewal fee will be deducted automatically from client’s credit card. In circumstances a collection of the fee is not viable, the company will inform the client for the uncollected rolling fees via email. If we are unable to collect the rolling fees, we will close some, or all of your opened positions after 24 hours. Closing of deals due to uncollected rolling fees will not take place during the weekend. Your Day Trading positions will remain opened until Monday at 22:00 GMT, when the rolling fees will be collected.
25.SPEED, LIKELIHOOD AND SETTLEMENT OF EXECUTION (MEDIUM IPORTANCE)
In its capacity as principal and not as agent on the client’s behalf, and as the sole execution venue, the Company seeks to execute clients’ orders with the fastest execution reasonably possible and within the limitations of technology and communication links. The Company’s order flow logic is designed in such way to accept automatically all orders and without manual intervention. In case of technical malfunctions, the Company has the right to cancel an order or trade of any type. It is worth noting that the company does not requote any type of order.
The Company strives to provide the best possible rate to its clients, however under certain circumstances, such as occasions of thin liquidity, of a fast-moving market or before or at the open/close of the trading session, it may not be possible to guarantee the execution of any or all orders. The Company reserves the right to decline an order of any type but will not delay the execution of an order in the hope that market conditions will improve. Further, Clients should be aware the risks associated while trading under the abovementioned occasions. A non-exhaustive list of such occasions is as follows;
• The opening price might be substantially different from the close of the previous trading session.
• Delays on execution of orders may occur due to high volume of orders waiting for execution. The Company does not manually intervene to delay execution in the hope that market conditions will change.
• The executed rate on MT4 Platforms can be different from the requested rate, if the requested market rate is no longer available due to a rapidly moving market. The difference between the executed rate and the requested rate can be either in favor oragainst the client. On Proprietary platforms the market order might be rejected when a rapidly moving market causes the requested market rate for execution to be significantly different from the prevailing market rate.
The Company proceeds with the settlement of all orders upon their execution.
26.NATURE AND SIZE OF ORDERS (LOW IMPORTANCE)
The Company strives to fill all orders of all sizes, however due to market volatility at the time of execution, the rate given may be different from the requested rate (see Order Types and Execution Elements for exact details). The Company may limit the maximum volume of a single trade as well as the maximum total position a client may hold on a financial product or a set of products.
The Company’s proprietary and non-proprietary platforms do not support sub-zero prices.
Therefore, the Company does not allow the trading of sub-zero (negative) prices. Where the prices of any financial instrument collapse in sub-zero (negative) prices, the Company is obliged to disable the trading for the specific instrument and as a result closure of the existing positions at zero price for the instrument affected will occur.
28.REGULAR MONITORING AND RIVIEW OF OUR ORDER EXECUTION POLICY
The Company monitors the implementation and effectiveness of its Order Execution Policy with regards to the procedures followed and all factors that may affect its Order Execution.
The Company reserves the right to correct any limitations and proceed to improvements.
The Company will review and evaluate its Policy at least annually and when a relevant material change occurs. In case of changes to the Policy, the Company will notify all Clients.
The Company is obligated to obtain the client’s consent to its Order Execution Policy when commencing a business relationship.
By agreeing to the Terms, Conditions and Clauses described in the ‘Client Agreement’, the client provides the consents referred to in the paragraph above, where the client is informed that all orders placed with the Company, the Company acts as the principal and not as agent, and it is the sole execution venue, which is a non-regulated market.

Please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved and do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. Please refer to our full risk disclaimer.

SCOPE OF THE NOTICE
1.1Oriental Wealth Markets Limited (referred to as ‘Oriental Wealth Markets Limited’, the ‘Firm’, ‘us’, ‘we’ and ‘our’) provides you with this ‘Risk Disclosure Notice’ (the ‘Notice’) to help you understand the risks that might arise when trading Contracts for Difference (‘CFDs’) and/or Spread Bets. However, you need to bear in mind that the Notice does not contain all the risks and aspects involved in trading said instruments. The Client (referred to as the ‘Client’, ‘you’, ‘your’ and ‘yourself’) should carefully read the Notice in conjunction with the ‘Client Agreement’, and the documentation/ information available to you through our Website.
1.2 You need to ensure that any decision to engage in trading CFDs and/or Spread Bets is made on an informed basis and in light of your knowledge and experience as well as to your personal circumstances (including but not limited to your financial position). In addition, you need to ensure that you understand the nature of CFDs and Spread Bets, and the extent of all risks and aspects involved in trading these instruments.
1.3Please note that CFDs and Spread Bets are leveraged financial products and therefore as such, trading these instruments involves a high risk of loss as price movements are influenced by the amount of leverage the client is using. For example, if a client is using 30 times leverage a movement of 0.5% will result in a gain or a loss of 15%. Nonetheless, as a result of the ‘Negative Balance Protection’ (‘NBP’) you may not lose more than your initial investment.
1.4Trading CFDs and/or Spread Bets is not appropriate for all investors. Under no circumstances, you should risk more than you are prepared to lose.
1.5For any capitalised term, which has not been defined in the Notice, please refer to Schedule A (‘Glossary’) of the ‘Client Agreement’.
2.1 When processing your ‘Account Opening Form’ Oriental Wealth Markets Limited carries out an assessment of your
appropriateness to trade CFDs and/or Spread Bets and determines, based on information you provide us with, if you have sufficient knowledge and experience to understand the risks involved in trading leveraged products. We will inform you of the results of our assessment, but this does not relieve you of the need to carefully consider whether to trade with us. If we warn you that trading CFDs and/or Spread Bets may not be appropriate for you, then you should refrain from trading CFDs and/or Spread Bets until you attain sufficient knowledge and experience, for example you may trade on a demo account prior to trading in a live environment and you acquainted yourself sufficiently with the relevant risks.
3. NATURE OF CFDs AND SPREAD BETS
CFDs are agreements to exchange the difference in value of a particular instrument or currency between the time at which the agreement is entered into and the time at which it is closed. CFDs allow the Firm’s Clients to replicate the economic effect of trading in financial instruments without requiring actual ownership of those assets; a full list of the CFDs on offer by Oriental Wealth Markets Limited is available on our Website.
Spread Bets are a type of contract whereby a Client can speculate on the price movement of a financial instrument by placing a buy or sell order which will pay out a pre-determined amount per point gained. This means that for every point that the price of the financial instrument moves in your favour, you will gain multiples of that pre-determined amount (also known as ‘stake’). Conversely, if the price of the financial instrument moves against you, you will lose multiples of the stake. Like with the case of CFDs, with Spread Betting you can replicate the economic effect of trading in financial instruments without owning the underlying assets.
Profits derived from Spread Betting are free of capital gains tax and stamp duty for UK residents only. Tax laws are subject to change and depend on individual circumstances. You may wish to seek advice from a tax adviser if you are unsure of your circumstances.
CFDs and Spread Bets are derivative products traded off-exchange (or Over-the-Counter (‘OTC’)); this means Oriental Wealth Markets Limited is always the counterparty to the Client trades and any CFD and/or Spread Bet trades entered into with the Firm, can only be closed with us. Your ability to open and/or close trades is dependent on the availability of our trading platform(s).
You understand that you are not entitled to the physical delivery of the underlying instrument (or reference instrument) of the CFDs and/or Spread Bets you are trading, and you have no rights in the underlying instrument (such as voting rights in case you are trading CFDs and/or Spread Bets on shares).
CFDs and/or Spread Bets fluctuate in value during the day; the price movements of CFDs and/or Spread Bets are determined by a number of factors including but not limited to availability of market information.
PRICES AND COST
4.1 The prices generated by our trading platform(s) are derived from the prices of the relevant
underlying instruments, which the Firm obtains from third party liquidity/ price providers. The prices of CFDs and/or Spread Bets that you trade with us include a mark-up; this means thatthe spreads offered by us comprise of (i) the raw spreads received from liquidity/ price provider(s) and (ii) a mark-up (where applicable).
4.2For trading certain CFDs and/or Spread Bets, the Client may be required to pay a commission and/or other fees; these instances are described in detail in our Website. For all type of CFDs and/or Spread Bets offered by the Firm, the commission (if applicable) and financing/ overnight fees are not incorporated into the Firm’s quoted prices and are instead charged explicitly to the Client Account(s). In the case of financing/ overnight fees, the value of opened positions in some types of financial instruments is increased or reduced by a daily financing fee ‘swap’ throughout the life of the trade. The financing fees are based on prevailing market interest rates. From Mondays to Friday swap is charged once for every business day and on Wednesday swap is charged in triple size in order to account for the weekend; details of daily financing/ overnight fees applied, are available in our Website.
4.3You should not fund your Account using money obtained from any credit facility (including bank loan or otherwise). You should understand that your overall risks will be significantly increased. For instance, if you incur a loss on your trades, you will still have to repay any amount borrowed plus any interest or other costs. Therefore, you shall never finance any trades on such borrowed money, and you should never rely on being able to profit on any trade, in order to repay such amounts.
5. MARKET CONDITIONS, REQUIRED MARGIN, LEVERAGE AND STOP-OUT LEVELS
5.1Trading CFDs and Spread Bets enables you to use leverage to open a trade by depositing a fraction of the total trade value; this means that a relatively small market movement may lead to a proportionately much larger movement in the value of your trade. For margin calculation purposes, the leverage level used will be the lower of: (i) the Account or (ii) symbol traded. This logic applies on all our trading platforms.
5.2 Financial markets may fluctuate rapidly to reflect events that are outside the control of the
Firm and/or your control; as a result, prices will become volatile. One form of price volatility is ‘gapping’, which occurs when there is a sudden shift in prices from one level to another. This can be caused, for example by unexpected economic events or market announcements, within or outside trading hours. Consequently, Oriental Wealth Markets Limited may be unable to execute your instructions at the requested price. In addition, if prices move against you, this will have a direct and real time impact on your trades, which may be automatically stopped-out. It is possible that you all your trades will be stopped-out; not just the ones that are loss making.
5.4You should note that any changes made to your leverage level, on an already traded Account, can immediately affect your open positions and may result in a stop-out.
5.5It is your responsibility to monitor the required margin of your open positions and in order to avoid a stop-out you may have to fund your Account.
6. FOREIGN EXCHANGE AND OTHER RELATED RISKS
You will be impacted by foreign exchange movements, if you are trading in a product that is denominated in a currency other than the currency of your Account. Any currency conversion calculations are provided by the Firm to the Client in the currency in which the Client account is denominated and the currency of the relevant instrument, using the cross spot rate.
Your capacity to trade CFDs and Spread Bets may also be affected as a result of changes in the legal, regulatory, taxation environment and/or other.
7. TECHNICAL RISKS
7.1 We try to generate prices continuously and provide you with access* to our trading platforms
