All trading involves risk. Losses can exceed deposits.

Why do I need to verify my card or bank account?

Just like a bank, we are a financial services firm required to comply with anti-money laundering laws and regulation. In order to comply we may ask you, at times, to provide further documentation to help with the verification of your payment card and/or bank account. This is so that we can ensure that the source and destination of your funds are in your name.
