1. Disclosure - Members must provide retail forex customers with understandable and timely disclosure on essential features of forex trading
At or before the time a customer first engages in a forex transaction, a Member and its Associates should disclose how the Member will be compensated for the services it will provide to the customer.
Additionally, a Forex Dealer Member must describe to the customer the principal nature of these foreign currency transactions. Therefore, a Forex Dealer Member must provide, and the customer must separately acknowledge receipt of, either the following disclosure language or other appropriate language (based upon the Forex Dealer Member's business model) approved by NFA staff, which must be prominently displayed in all uppercase letters and in 10 point size type or larger but in any event no smaller than any surrounding type:
IF [MEMBER] ELECTS NOT TO COVER ITS OWN TRADING EXPOSURE, THEN YOU SHOULD BE AWARE THAT [MEMBER] MAY MAKE MORE MONEY IF THE MARKET GOES AGAINST YOU. ADDITIONALLY, SINCE [MEMBER] ACTS AS THE BUYER OR SELLER IN THE TRANSACTION, YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY EVALUATE ANY TRADE RECOMMENDATIONS YOU RECEIVE FROM [MEMBER] OR ANY OF ITS SOLICITORS.
