Terms & Conditions
Effective from 01.07.2021 until Further Notice
This is a legal contract between UniPro Bank, a registered financial services company in the United Kingdom and is fully licensed by Financial Services Commission, herein after known as (“Unipro Bank”, “us” or “we”) its successors and assigns, and the party/parties (the “Customer”, “client” or “you”) executing this document. This document, together with our Risk Disclosure Statement, and Privacy Statement, represents the terms with which Unipro Bank will do business with Customer. This document sets out the respective rights and obligations of both parties in connection with this service and both parties will accept and be bound by these terms on acceptance of the terms contained herein and on completion of the application form by Customer.
In connection with opening an account with Unipro Bank to speculate in, and/or purchase, and/or sell, Forex, Contracts for Differences (hereinafter referred to as “CFDs”), Options (hereinafter referred to as “Options”) and Spread Betting, in commodities, metals, currencies and indices, and the receipt of such other services and products as Unipro Bank may, in its sole discretion, determine to offer from time to time in the future, Customer acknowledges that it has been advised and understands the following factors concerning trading in the over the counter market (“OTC”) and/or Spread Betting market, in addition to those contained in the Risk Disclosure Statement which has been provided to Customer. We trade contracts for differences (“CFD”) transactions in OTC.
In consideration of Unipro Bank agreeing to provide services to “Customer”, “client” or “you” in connection with the purchase of Forex, CFDs, Options and Spread Betting in commodities, currencies, metals and indices and the receipt of such other services and products as Unipro Bank may, in its sole discretion, determine to offer from time to time in the future and which may be purchased or sold by or through Unipro Bank for Customer’s accounts(s), Customer agrees that the following rights and obligations will govern the relationship between Unipro Bank and Customer.
OTC trading means that trading does not take place on a regulated exchange. There are no guarantees as to the credit worthiness of the counter party of your Forex, CFDs, Options and Spread Betting position. Also, there may be certain cases in which trading liquidity decreases, causing Forex, CFDs, Options and Spread Betting in commodities, currencies, metals and indices to cease, thereby preventing the liquidation of an adverse position which may result in a substantial financial loss.
Unipro Bank does not provide investment advice. The market recommendations, signals, information provided by and/or distributed by Unipro Bank are general in nature and based solely on the judgment of Unipro Bank’s personnel or from third party information providers. These market recommendations may or
may not be consistent with the market position or intentions of Unipro Bank, its marketing partners, and/or employees. The market recommendations and information provided by Unipro Bank are based upon information believed to be reliable, but Unipro Bank cannot and does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness thereof or represent that following such recommendations will eliminate the risk inherent in trading Forex, CFDs, Options and Spread Betting. Any market recommendations of, or information provided by, Unipro Bank does not constitute an offer to buy or sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy or sell, any OTC transaction. Customer understands and hereby agrees that Customer is capable of, and solely responsible for, assessing the merits and risks of any trade it may enter into with Unipro Bank.
Customer understands that Unipro Bank does not permit its Customer representatives to either exercise discretion or manage an OTC account. If Customer’s account is not being traded with Customer’s authorisation, Customer must notify Unipro Bank immediately.
Unipro Bank’s margin policies and/or the policies of those banks/clearing houses through which trades are executed may require that additional funds be provided to properly margin Customer’s account and Customer is obligated to immediately meet such margin requirements. Failure to meet margin calls may result in the liquidation of any open positions with a resultant loss. Unipro Bank reserves the right to refuse to accept any order.
Customer understands that it must carefully review the reports relating to Customer’s trading posted online by Unipro Bank. All reports of execution and statements of accounts will be deemed final unless customer objects within two business days of being posted. Objections may be made initially by email or by telephone, but must be confirmed thereafter in writing.
Customer understands that Unipro Bank may establish rules and provisions for client accounts, including but not limited to minimum account size, investment time period, commissions and fees, leverage size per instrument, mark ups, rules relating to stop losses and limits, rules relating to rollovers, rules relating to margin calls, or any other financial arrangement, and that such rules and provisions may be changed by Unipro Bank from time to time.
Customer has read and understands the Customer’s obligations and rights under this Customer Agreement and agrees and acknowledges that this Customer Agreement, the Risk Disclosure Statement and the Privacy Statement will comprise the terms of the Customer’s relationship with Unipro Bank. The Customer agrees that Customer is fully responsible for making all decisions as to transactions effected for Customer’s account. Customer has considered the foregoing factors and in view of Customer’s present and anticipated financial resources, Customer is willing and able to assume the substantial financial risks of OTC trading.
IT IS THE CUSTOMER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO FIND OUT ALL NECESSARY INFORMATION ABOUT TRADING IN FOREX, CFDs, OPTIONS AND SREAD BETTING AND UNIPRO BANK TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND MAKE SURE THAT ALL RISKS AND ARRANGEMENTS ARE DISCUSSED AND CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD PRIOR TO ANY TRADING ACTIVITY.

These are commonly known as European style vanilla options.

10.5 We will make available, by posting on www.avafx.com / www.Unipro Bank.com, the current price applicable to a share or index, and offer you the opportunity to submit a put or call position in respect of such share.

We make no warranty, express or implied, that the quoted prices represent prevailing quoted prices.

17.10 Should a quoting or execution error occur, which may include, but are not limited to, a mistype of a quote, a quote that is not representative of fair market prices, an erroneous price quote from a dealer or erroneous price quote due to failure of hardware, software or communication lines or systems or inaccurate external data feeds provided by third-party vendors, Unipro Bank will not be liable for the resulting errors in account balances. Without derogating from the above, in the event that transactions shall be closed or opened based on the Erroneous Quote, Unipro Bank’s trading room attempts to recognize such event and to act promptly to reset such event. Customer acknowledges that the reset process may take time, during which Customer may not be able to use its trading account, and outstanding orders may not be executed.

(ii) All initial and subsequent deposits for margin purposes shall be made in U.S. Dollars, EUROs, Great British Pounds or Japanese Yen in such amounts as Unipro Bank may in its sole discretion require; and

19.4 Unipro Bank shall be entitled to setoff Customer’s liabilities under this section from Customer’s account.
20. MARKET ABUSE AND MANIPULATION
20.1 PROHIBITION ON ARBITRAGE AND MANIPULATION
21.1.1 Unipro Bank does not permit the practice of arbitrage when trading and strictly forbids any form of manipulation of its prices, execution, and platform or making transactions based on errors, omissions or misquotes on the Unipro Bank platform.
21.1.2 Price latency, connectivity delays, and price feed errors sometimes create a situation where the prices displayed do not accurately reflect market rates. The concept of arbitrage and “scalping”, or taking advantage of these Internet delays, cannot exist in an OTC market where the client is buying or selling directly from the market maker.
21.1.3 Any transactions that rely on price latency or price feed errors may be subject to intervention which includes the right to void any transactions which Unipro Bank has determined to be a result of any of these practices, revocation of profits, widening of spreads, block of trading and any other necessary corrections or adjustments on the account without prior notice.
21.1.4 If Unipro Bank suspects or has reason to believe that Customer has abused the terms and conditions by hedging positions internally (using other trading accounts held with Unipro Bank) or externally (using other trading accounts held with other brokers), Unipro Bank reserves the right to cancel any trades or profits associated with Customer’s account(s).
20.2 MARKET ABUSE
21.2.1 Unipro Bank may hedge our liability to you by opening analogous positions with other institutions or in the underlying market. The result of our doing this is that when you trade with us your trades can, through our hedging, exert a distorting influence on the underlying market for that index, in addition to the impact that it may have on our own prices. This creates a possibility of market abuse.
21.2.2 Customer represents and warrants, and agrees that each such representation and warranty is deemed repeated each time Customer opens or closes a position that:
(a) Customer will not place and has not placed a trade with us relating to a particular index or any other CFD price if to do so would result in Customer, or others with whom Customer is acting in concert together, having an exposure to the price of the underlying financial instrument which can create a situation of market abuse.
This exposure can be equal to or exceeding the amount of a declarable interest in the relevant financial instrument. For this purpose, the level of a declarable interest will be the prevailing level at the material time, set by law or by the stock exchange(s) or other exchange upon which the underlying financial instrument is traded; and
(b) Customer will not place and has not placed a trade with us in connection with:
(i) a placing, issue, distribution or other analogous event;
(ii) an offer, take over, merger or other analogous event; or
(iii) any other corporate finance style activity, in which Customer is involved or otherwise interested; and
(c) Customer will not place or close a position and Customer will not place an order that contravenes any primary or secondary legislation or other law against insider dealing or market manipulation. Customer agrees that Unipro Bank may proceed on the basis that when Customer opens or closes a position or places an order on a share price, Customer may be treated as dealing in securities within the meaning of the relevant statutes or regulations.
21.2.3 In the event that (a) Customer places or closes any trade or places an order in breach of the representations and warranties given, or Unipro Bank has reasonable grounds for suspecting that Customer may have done so, Unipro Bank may at our absolute discretion and without being under any obligation to inform Customer of our reason for doing so close that trade and any other trade or trades that you may have open at the time, if
applicable, and also at our absolute discretion cancel any trades or profits associated with Customer’s account(s)
21.2.4 Customer acknowledges that trade are speculative arrangements and Customer agrees that Customer will not enter into any transactions with us in connection with any corporate finance style activity.
21.2.5 Customer acknowledges that it would be improper for Customer to deal in the underlying market if the sole purpose of such a transaction was to impact on our bid or offer prices, and Customer agrees not to conduct any such transactions.
21. EXECUTION OF ORDERS, STOP AND LIMITS
21.1 Unipro Bank will use commercially reasonable efforts to complete all orders which it may, in its sole discretion, choose to accept in accordance with the oral or written or computer instructions of Customer.
21.2 Unipro Bank reserves the right to refuse to accept any order.
21.3 Unipro Bank may, at its sole discretion, allow Customer to specify a closing price for a transaction at the trading platform through a “Close at Loss” and “Close at Profit” order, subject always to the terms of this Agreement and any other terms and conditions Unipro Bank may implement from time to time.
22.3.1 “Close at Loss” means an offer to close a transaction at a price determined in advance by Customer which, in the case of a transaction that is opened by offering to buy a specific number of a certain instrument, is lower than the opening transaction price, and in the case of a transaction that is opened by offering to sell a specific number of a certain instrument, is higher than the opening transaction price.
22.3.2 “Close at Profit” means an offer to close a transaction at a price determined in advance by Customer which, in the case of a transaction that is opened by offering to buy a specific number of a certain instrument, is higher than the opening transaction price, and in the case of a transaction that is opened by offering to sell a specific number of a certain instrument, is lower than the opening transaction price.
21.4 Upon Customer’s offer and Unipro Bank’s acceptance of an order, Customer hereby authorizes Unipro Bank to close the transaction at the Close at Loss price or Close at Profit price, as applicable, and as agreed upon in the order, without further instruction from or notification to Customer.
21.5 Unipro Bank may, in its sole discretion, close the transaction when the price quoted by Unipro Bank on the trading platform equals the price accepted by Unipro Bank for such an order.
21.6 Customer acknowledges and agrees that Unipro Bank shall not be obligated to close a transaction which does not otherwise comply with any other limitations agreed upon with respect to such transaction.
21.7 Customer acknowledges and agrees that due to market volatility and factors beyond Unipro Bank’s control, Unipro Bank cannot guarantee that a Close at Loss order will be executed at the level specified in Customer’s order. In such an event, Unipro Bank will close the transaction at the next best price.
21.8 If, before Customer’s “Limit Order” offer to open or close a transaction is accepted by Unipro Bank, Unipro Bank’s quote moves to Customer’s advantage (for example, if the price goes down as Customer buys or the price goes up as Customer sells) Customer agrees that Unipro Bank will execute the closing transaction at the Customer’s specified price and not better. Customer agrees that Unipro Bank can retain such price movement for its own account.
21.9 Customer is aware that a part of Unipro Bank’s revenues derives from the spreads on each transaction. The spread is the difference between the bid & the ask price of the price quote on a transaction. Therefore, in case the fair market price reduces Unipro Bank’s spread in a specific transaction, Unipro Bank may, at its sole discretion, choose not to execute such transaction, in which case Unipro Bank may send Customer an amended quote for his consideration. Unipro Bank may complete a transaction at its sole discretion in case the fair market price does not affect Unipro Bank’s spread from the transaction and / or increases it.
22. RISK ACKNOWLEDGMENT
22.1 Customer acknowledges that investment in leveraged and non-leveraged transactions are speculative, involves a high degree of risk, and is appropriate only for persons who can assume risk of loss of their entire margin deposit.
22.2 Customer understands that because of the low margin normally required in OTC trading, price changes in OTC may result in significant losses.
22.3 Customer warrants that Customer is willing and able, financially and otherwise, to assume the risk of OTC trading, and in consideration of Unipro Bank’s carrying his/her account(s), Customer agrees not to hold Unipro Bank and any of its subsidiaries, marketing partners or agents responsible for any losses incurred by Customer.
22.4 Customer recognizes that guarantees of profit or freedom from loss are impossible in OTC trading.
22.5 Customer acknowledges that Customer has received no such guarantees from Unipro Bank or from any of its representatives or any introducing agent or other entity with whom Customer is conducting his/her Unipro Bank account and has not entered into this agreement in consideration of or in reliance upon any such guarantees or similar representations.
22.6 The high degree of leverage that is obtainable in the trading of Forex, CFDs, Options and Spread Betting transactions can work against you as well as for you. Leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains.
22.7 During times of extreme volatility it can be difficult or impossible to execute orders.
23. MARKET RECOMMENDATIONS AND INFORMATION
23.1 Customer acknowledges that:
(i) Any market recommendations, signals and information communicated by any method of communication to Customer by Unipro Bank and any of its subsidiaries, marketing partners, agents or by any person within Unipro Bank does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any OTC contract, and that Unipro Bank does not provide investment advice
(ii) Such recommendation and information, although generally based upon information obtained from sources believed by Unipro Bank to be reliable, may be based solely on a broker’s opinion and that such information may be incomplete and may be unverified, and
(iii) Unipro Bank makes no representation, warranty or guarantee as to, and shall not be responsible for, the accuracy or completeness of any information or market recommendation furnished to Customer and shall not be responsible for any loss or damage including without limitation any loss of margin or profits which may arise directly or indirectly from use or reliance on such recommendations or information.
23.2 Customer understands that Customer is solely responsible for assessing the merits and risks of any trade it may enter into with Unipro Bank whether as a result of information provided by Unipro Bank or otherwise.
23.3 Customer acknowledges that Unipro Bank and/or its officers, directors, marketing partners, associates, stockholders or representatives may have a position in or may intend to buy or sell Forex, CFDs, Options and Spread Bets, which are the subject of market recommendations furnished to Customer, and that the market position of Unipro Bank or any such officer, director, marketing partner, associate, stockholder or representative may not be consistent with the recommendations furnished to Customer by Unipro Bank.
23.4 Customer acknowledges that Unipro Bank makes no representations concerning the tax implications or treatment of any trading activity.
