Terms and Conditions
Trading leveraged derivative products such as Foreign Exchange (Forex), Contracts for Difference (CFDs), or other financial derivative products carry a high level of risk to your capital. All these products, which are leveraged derivative products, may not be appropriate for all investors. The effect of leverage is that both gains and losses are magnified. The prices of leveraged derivative products may change to your disadvantage very quickly, you can lose more than your invested capital, and you may be required to make further payments. Before deciding to invest in any financial product, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, trading knowledge and experience, and affordability. You should only trade in Forex and CFDs if you have sufficient knowledge and experience of the risky nature of the products, the risks involved in trading such products, and if you are dealing with money that you can afford to lose. You should seek independent professional financial advice if you are in any doubt.

l) The rights are given to JPPro under this guarantee and indemnity, and the Guarantor’s liabilities under it, are not affected by any act or omission of us or any other person. For example, those rights and liabilities are not affected by any act or omission:
i. varying or replacing the Agreement; releasing the Client or giving the Client a concession (such as more time to pay);
ii. releasing any person who gives a guarantee or indemnity in connection with any of the Client’s obligations.
iii. by which a person becomes a Guarantor after the date of this guarantee and indemnity.
iv. by which the obligations of any person who guarantees any of the Client’s obligations (including obligations under this guarantee and indemnity) may become unenforceable.

viii. the death, mental or physical disability, or liquidation, administration or insolvency of any person including the Client or the Guarantor.
ix. changes in the membership, name or business of any person.
x. acquiescence or delay by JPPro or any other person.
m) If any obligation is required, or maybe required, to be complied with in connection with this guarantee and indemnity, the Guarantor may not, without our consent:
i. reduce its liability under this guarantee and indemnity by claiming that the Client or any other person has a right of set-off or counterclaim against JPPro; or
ii. exercise any legal right to claim to be entitled to the benefit of another guarantee, indemnity, mortgage, charge or other encumbrance given in connection with the Agreement or any other amount payable under this guarantee and indemnity; or
iii. claim an amount from the Client, or another guarantor (including a person who has signed the Application Form as a “Guarantor”) under a right of indemnity; or
iv. claim an amount in your liquidation, administration or insolvency or of another guarantor of any of your obligations (including a person who has signed the Application Form as a “Guarantor”).
7. CORPORATE ACTIONS
a) If a Corporate Action occurs, JPPro will reasonably determine what adjustment, if any, should be made to an Order to account for the dilutive or concentrative effect of any such event to preserve the economic equivalent of such Orders prior to the relevant event or to reflect the effect of such event on such Orders. Any such adjustments will be effective as of a date reasonably determined by us.
b) JPPro will not make dividend payments if:
i. a Client is the Long Party for a Share CFD which goes ex-dividend, JPPro will credit the Client’s account with a cash adjustment to reflect the impact of the dividend on the Orders. The amount of the adjustment will depend on the amount of the gross dividend on the relevant number of Share CFDs on the ex-dividend date.
ii. a Client is the Short Party for a Share CFD which goes ex-dividend, JPPro will debit the declared cash dividend from the Client’s account. The amount of the adjustment will depend on the amount equal to the gross dividend on the relevant number of Share CFDs on the-dividend date.
c) If an underlying asset to which an Open Position relates is subject to a Merger Event, JPPro reserves the right to close any or all affected Open Positions at any time during the Merger Event. JPPro will not close any Open Position that is subject to a Merger Event unless it has provided reasonable notice to the Client of a deadline for the Client to close their Open Position and the position remains open after this deadline.
d) JPPro reserves the right to adjust the opening price of any Financial Product that is subject to a Merger Event to reflect any cash portion of the offeror to amend the size to reflect any corresponding adjustment to the underlying asset caused by the Merger Event and/or to close the affected Open Positions and reopen a new position reflecting the new underlying asset that has been created. Any such adjustments will be effective as of a date reasonably determined by us.
e) If JPPro determines that no adjustment can be made under this clause 7(e) which would produce a commercially reasonable result, JPPro may close your Open Position at the Close-Out Value on a date reasonably determined by us.
f) Where the Client is the Long Party for a Share CFD in relation to a US stock or security, and the Share CFD goes ex-dividend, JPPro is required by US tax legislation to withhold 30% of the cash adjustment to reflect the impact of the declared dividend. JPPro will remit the amount withheld to its liquidity provider who will account the withheld amounts to the proper US authorities. Clients can view amounts withheld for US tax legislation purposes from their account.
8. TRADING SUSPENSION AND DISRUPTION
a) If, at any time:
i. trading in any Underlying Asset on any exchange is suspended or halted; or
ii. trading is suspended or halted on any exchange which restricts trading with any relevant index so that JPPro is unable to determine the price of the Underlying Asset, then JPPro will take the price of the Underlying Asset as being the last traded price before the trading suspension or halt.
b) If the suspension or halt continue for 5 Business Days, JPPro at its discretion may Close-Out your part or all of your Positions. When this happens, JPPro will decide the Close-Out date and the Close-Out value of your Contract in good faith (the Close-Out value will be the Underlying Asset price x the number of Contracts).
c) JPPro reserves the right at all times during any marketing limitations, suspension or disruption to adjust the price of any affected Underlying Asset.

a) This Agreement may be terminated immediately by the Client or JPPro by Notice to the other in writing. However, termination by either party shall not affect any Order or other transaction previously entered and shall not relieve either party of any outstanding obligations arising out of this Agreement, nor shall it relieve the Client of any obligations arising out of any Order entered into prior to such termination.
b) If JPPro is made aware of or has reason to believe any of the following:
i. that the Client has provided false or misleading information to JPPro; or
ii. that the Client has participated or is participating or has assisted or is assisting in money laundering or terrorist financing;

c) Within two (2) days of termination of this Agreement, the Client will return or destroy all materials received from JPPro as per JPPro’ written instructions. Each party’s duties of payment, delivery, and destruction of materials shall survive termination of this Agreement.
10. SET-OFF AGAINST MONIES OWED
a) In addition to other rights available to JPPro, the Client authorizes JPPro to:
i. appropriate, transfer, credit, apply or pay monies that may be received or held by JPPro the Client’s behalf in payment of any amounts which may be outstanding by the Client to JPPro or to an agent of JPPro in a transaction effected on the Client’s behalf; and
ii. set-off against any amounts due to it by the Client, any amounts received by JPPro from or on behalf of the Client including but not limited to monies received as Deposits or Margin Calls. JPPro may determine the application of any amounts which are to be set-off at its own discretion.
b) Payments by the Client to JPPro in accordance with this Agreement must be made without any set-off, counterclaim or condition and without any deduction or withholding for any tax or any other reason unless the deduction or withholding is required by applicable law.
c) Should the Client be required to make any form of deduction in respect of tax from any payment to be made or if JPPro is required to pay any tax in respect of any payment made in relation to this Agreement at the Client’s request the Client agrees to keep JPPro indemnified against that tax and agrees to pay to JPPro any additional amounts required to ensure JPPro receives the full net amount that is equal to the amount JPPro would have received had a deduction, withholding or payment of tax not been made.
d) Deposits or Margin Calls deposited by the Client will not fall due for repayment until the Client’s obligations under this Agreement and under or in respect of any other account between JPPro and the Client are satisfied in full. Until this time, Deposits or Margin Calls will not constitute a debt due from JPPro to the Client nor will the Client have any right to receive payment of these funds.
e) If the Agreement is terminated, the Client and JPPro agree that the claims against each other are finally discharged by means of close-out netting. JPPro will determine the Close-Out Values for each affected Order in its sole discretion. The final amount to be paid by one of the parties will be the difference between the payment obligations of the parties.
11. NEGATIVE BALANCE PROTECTION
The trading systems of JPPro are designed with safeguards to protect clients from encountering negative balances when trading under normal market conditions.
All clients are provided with margin monitoring functionality. This functionality monitors the level of collateral should it drop below 100% of the required margin. If it drops below 100%, the margin call mode will be triggered and maintained until the level of 50%. Should the margin level equal to, or drop below 50%, JPPro will initiate the closing of current open positions, starting from the most unprofitable considering trading hours of instruments traded by the client. Positions will be closed automatically at the current market price. The clients can set personal limits for risk management purposes. Should a client incur a negative balance due to a “market gap”, the client should inform the JPPro support team. JPPro will evaluate the inquiry and at its discretion, may credit the client’s account with the amount of the negative balance where the debit was during normal trading activity. This policy is available to Private Clients1 only.
Clients are expected to always maintain the appropriate levels of margin in the trading account as the recommended method of risk management.
NOTE: The provisions of this policy shall not apply to:
a) Force Majeure Event understood as an act of God, war, terrorism, malicious damage, civil commotion, industrial acts, any exceptional market events, or acts and regulations of any governmental or supranational bodies or authorities which in the company’s opinion prevent an orderly market in relation to Client’s orders;
b) in abnormal market conditions or exceptional market movements/volatility.
where the company determines, in its sole and absolute discretion, that the negative balance is unrelated to the client’s trading activity (for example, where the debit relates to any fee or charges of the company);
c) where the negative balance is connected to or a result of, either direct or indirect, breach of any provision by the client of the Client Agreement of the company or from the breach of the market rules, including but not limited to the laws of the client’s country of origin, client’s country of residence or any country.
Negative balance accounts – JPPro is entitled to combine the balances of any other accounts you hold with us, including any Joint Accounts to affect any set-off of amounts owing between you and JPPro, pursuant to our terms and conditions or otherwise, in each case in order to reduce or remove the relevant negative balance before effecting the negative balance protection provisions set out in this clause.
12. LIABILITY AND INDEMNITY
