If you fail to meet any margin requirement, your position may be liquidated and you will be responsible for any resulting losses. There are risks associated with utilizing an Internet-based trading system including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connection.

E*TRADE and FXCM employ backup systems and contingency plans to minimize the possibility of system failure, and trading via telephone is available.

Additionally, any assets deposited in your forex trading account do not receive segregation protection in the event FXCM is subject to bankruptcy.
