I have applied for or have opened a foreign exchange ("Forex") trading account with Forex Capital Market LTD ("FXCM"). I have provided FXCM a trading system of my own devise, have purchased (or licenced) a system developed by a third party system developer, or have subscribed to and/or authorised FXCM to follow a trade recommendation service or hotline of my own selection ("My Program") which I may revise from time to time. I acknowledge that I have been apprised by the third party developer of the volume of trading and resulting commissions to be generated by My Program and the impact this may have on its performance. I fully understand the limitations of hypothetical back-testing and real-time track records in predicting future performance. I hereby authorise and direct FXCM to enter trades for my account in accordance with trading signals generated by My Program. In consideration of opening and/or maintaining my account, I acknowledge and agree to the terms and conditions, as follows:

  1. I fully understand that the trading signals and recommendations are produced by My Program and not by FXCM and that FXCM's responsibility is to use commercially reasonable efforts to enter orders pursuant to the signals and recommendations generated by My Program and as received by FXCM. I confirm that FXCM has not solicited, or in any other way recommended, my participation in trading My Program with FXCM. I have made inquires and conducted research into My Program sufficient to make an informed investment decision. FXCM cannot imply or guarantee that I will make a profit from My Program and I agree that FXCM will not be held responsible for My Program's performance or trading losses incurred in my account as a result of my trading pursuant to My Program.
  2. FXCM will enter orders for my account in accordance with the trading signals generated by My Program. I understand that transactions in the market as designated by My Program may be traded in my account in accordance with this agreement. I understand that My Program will be provided by my Program Provider and not by FXCM.
  3. By signing below, I grant Limited Power of Attorney in favour of FXCM solely for the purpose of entering orders in accordance with the signals generated by My Program. If My Program is a third-party developed system, trade recommendation service or hotline, I have arranged for the originator of the service or hotline to transmit by facsimile, telephone, or otherwise, the trade signals to be executed for my account. If more than one FXCM client is using the same system or service as My Program, I acknowledge FXCM may enter block orders to enhance order execution, in which case a fair and systematic fill allocation method will be employedFXCM shall not be responsible for mechanical or communication line failure, system errors, data failure or any other causes beyond its control. I acknowledge that FXCM can accept and execute orders only if actually received or generated and then on a "not held" basis (i.e. FXCM shall not be held responsible for the execution of the order at the price indicated or otherwise).
  4. I am aware of the speculative nature and high risks associated with Forex trading. I have provided the ideas, techniques and trading parameters used in My Program or, if it is a third-party developed system or trade recommendation service or hotline, I understand its trading parameters. I have had the opportunity to ask questions on how my account will be handled. I further understand that by using a third-party developed system whereby Program Provider is receiving volume based compensation, that there are potential risks such as trades being placed for the purpose of generating markups and rebates to the System Provider. I am aware that it is my responsibility to monitor the trades placed through the system. I acknowledge that I have not purchased My Program from FXCM although it may have acted as my agent in the purchase or licence of My Program. I understand that there is no trading system or recommendation service that is free from the risk of loss. FXCM does not imply or guarantee that I will make a profit and I agree that neither FXCM nor any of its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents or affiliates will be held responsible for the performance of My Program or trading losses in my account.
  5. I understand that using My Program to generate trading signals exposes me to risks associated with the use of computers and data feed systems relied on by FXCM. I agree to accept such risks, which may include, but are not limited to, failure of hardware, software or communication lines or systems and/or inaccurate external data feeds provided by third-party vendors and further agree to hold FXCM harmless from any losses in my account associated with these risks. Absent willful or wanton misconduct, neither FXCM nor any of its officers, directors, vendors, employees, agents, associated persons or FXCM personnel will be liable for any such breakdown or failure.
  6. FXCM may act upon the authority given by this letter of direction until I revoke the authority by written notice addressed and actually delivered to FXCM . This revocation of authority must be delivered by submitting FXCM's "Revocation of Letter of Direction" form. FXCM may also terminate the authorisation over the account at any time for any reason in its sole discretion. In the event that FXCM terminates the trading authorisation over my account, FXCM will provide me with notice in accordance with the terms of business. I shall be responsible for any open lots in my account at the time that I revoke the authority or such authority is terminated by FXCM. I shall permit FXCM where applicable, to execute offsetting orders for open positions in my account at the time the Letter of Direction is terminated.
  7. I agree that, in the absence of willful or wanton misconduct, neither FXCM nor any of its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents or affiliates will be held liable for any act or omission in the course of or in connection with my participation in My Program. I shall indemnify FXCM, its principals, officers, directors, employees, agents, successor and/or assigns from all losses and/or liability (including reasonable attorney's and/or accountant's fees) incurred or resulting from this Letter of Direction and Limited Power of Attorney to execute My Program, provided that there has been no judicial determination that such liability was the result of gross negligence or recklessness or intentional misconduct by FXCM, and further provided that the conduct that was the basis for such liability was not undertaken in the actual and reasonable belief that it was in the best interest of my account.
  8. I am also aware that because the risk factor is high in Forex market trading, only genuine "risk" funds should be used in such trading. Account holders that do not have the extra capital that may be subject to a total loss, should not trade in the Forex market.
  9. In connection with my foreign exchange ("FX") trading account carried by Forex Capital Markets, LTD, ("FXCM"), the undersigned Account Holder hereby ratifies and confirms that he/she has agreed to be charged and to compensate the person or entity named below for services rendered in accordance with the following terms.
