Your loss may be limited, but the risk of sustaining a total loss to the amount agreed is substantial.
14. The Company’s liability, to compensate for damages incurred by the client, shall be limited to direct damages that a client can prove by a final judgment to have incurred, up to a maximum amount equal to the fund client has deposited in his account with the Company. In no case, shall the Company be liable for consequential or special damages (including loss of profits) whether based on contract, tort or any other legal theory, caused to the Client or to third parties. The Client will indemnify and hold the Company and any and all of its related companies, employees, agents and/or officers (“Representatives”) harmless upon any liability and/or claim, in connection with the use of these Sites by the Client, including but not limited to any breach of a legal requirement or of these Terms by the Client.
15. We shall not be liable for any breach of obligation or default of any counterparty, intermediate broker, bank, custodian, sub-custodian, market or market operator, exchange, clearing house, depositary or other third party with whom you do business.

All payments shall be made on the same day and freely transferable funds in such currency and to such bank as we may from time to time specify. Further, you undertake to keep us and our agents and employees fully and effectively indemnified against all costs, charges, liabilities and expenses whatsoever incurred by us and them pursuant to or in connection with the Site unless due to our or their negligence, willful default or fraud. This clause will survive termination of any Agreement between you and us.
16. We shall not be liable for any loss, expense, cost or liability (together “Loss”) suffered or incurred by you unless and to the extent that such Loss is suffered or incurred as a result of our negligence or willful default or indirect or consequential loss or damage (whether for loss of profit, loss of business or otherwise), costs, expenses or other claims for consequential compensation whatsoever (howsoever caused) which arise out of or in relation to this Agreement; or loss suffered or incurred by you as a result of any error in any order, instruction or information given by you, the Client, or as a result of us acting on any order or instruction which is, or appears to be from you.

17. The Company shall not be liable or responsible for any damage, in case of a force majeure event not in Company’s control.
18. You acknowledge that margined currency trading is one of the riskiest forms of investment available in the financial markets and is only suitable for sophisticated individuals and institutions. Prices in margined currency trading are highly volatile.. The funds in an account trading at maximum leverage can be completely lost, if the position(s) held in the account has a two percent swing in value. Given the possibility of losing an entire investment, speculation in the foreign exchange market should only be conducted with risk capital funds that if lost will not significantly affect your personal or institution’s financial well being. You confirm that the funds you will use on the Site are purely risk capital and loss of your investment will not jeopardize your style of living nor will it detract from your future retirement program. Additionally, you fully understand the nature and risks of currency and currency options investments, and your obligations to others will not be neglected should you suffer investment losses.

37. Clients are not allowed to have more than one funded account. Clients who have multiple accounts registered under the same name may have one or all of the accounts closed, subject to management decision. Furthermore, clients with multiple accounts in which multiple investments are made with varying names and/or sources may have all the accounts closed, and investments returned per management decision. It is most advisable to open only one account, and to invest using your own funds
38. All Bonuses are discretionary and are credited to client accounts at the discretion of Option Banque
39. Bonuses cannot be withdrawn or redeemed in any form, until the associated trading volume conditions are met.
40. For any given bonus, a trade volume of 30 times the bonus amount shall be required, before a withdrawal can be made from the account
Please Note: Withdrawal here includes the sum total of the amount deposited by the client/trader, and the bonus amount credited to the account by Option Banque.
For example, if a client/trader deposits $1000 into his/her account, and is credited with a 50% bonus, $500 will be credited to the client account balance bringing it to $1500.00. This amount of $1500.00 cannot be withdrawn by the client before the client has traded a total volume of $500 (bonus amount) X 30 = $15000.00.
Trading volume is calculated based on the premium that is invested/placed by a client in any given trade. Therefore, if a trader/client invests/places $100.00 on any option listed on the Option Banque platform, the total trading volume of that transaction is counted as $100.00. The eventual outcome of the trade i.e. Whether the option expires with a profit or loss OR the magnitude of the profit or loss, do not impact the volume calculation in any way.
41. All bonuses are optional, and clients/traders are not obligated to accept a bonus under any condition whatsoever. Bonuses will only be credited to client accounts IF the bonus is requested and approved by Option Banque Management.
42. If a client that has availed of a bonus, is unable to meet the terms of the bonus in terms of the required trading volume, and is in such a situation that requires a withdrawal of funds on an emergency basis, the client/trader should inform Option Banque, in writing of their specific requirement to withdraw funds. In such a situation, provided Option Banque finds that no systemic abuse or manipulation of the bonus terms/trading platform has taken place, Option Banque shall deduct the full bonus amount originally credited as well as all trading profits till that point, from the client account. Further, in the event that the account has made losses in trading till that point, the client/trader shall bear all such losses.
For Example, if a client deposits $5000.00 into their account and is credited with a 50% bonus, the total client balance becomes $5000 + $2500.00(bonus amount) = $7500.00
The trading volume that the client has to achieve before they are able to make ANY withdrawal from the account, shall be $2500 X 30 = $75000.00
Assuming that the client makes 10 trades of $500.00 each, on multiple options listed on the OptionBanque Trading Platform for 2 weeks. The total result of these transactions is that the client is in a profit of $2000.00 (assumed figure).
At this point the clients total trading volume has been 500 x 10 = $5000.00
The account balance is $7500 + 2000 = $9500.00
The volume required to be traded before the client can make any withdrawal = $75000.00
Should the client wish to withdraw funds from the account in cases of emergency, and subject to there being no abuse of the trading system or the terms of the bonus in any way, the solution in the above example shall be as follows.
$9500.00 (total account balance) – $2500.00 (bonus amount) – $2000.00 (profit earned while the bonus was in the account) = $5000.00
The above amount of $5000.00 shall remain the client account after the request for bonus cancellation is approved and processed.
This amount can then be withdrawn by the client, as and when they prefer.
In the above example, we now look at a different scenario
The client account is credited with the same bonus of $2500.00 with a Client Deposit of $5000.00
The total account balance here = $7500.00
The volume requirement is again as before = $2500 x 30 = $75000.00
The client trades for 2 weeks and over 10 trades of $1000.00 each, the net result is a net trading loss of $1000.00
In this situation
The client account balance after the trades = $7500.00 – $1000.00 = $6500.00
Traded volume in 10 trades = $10000.00
Required Volume = $75000.00
In the above scenario, should the client wish to make a withdrawal under emergency circumstances and subject to there being no violation or abuse of the conditions of the trading platform or the bonus, the solution to the above situation shall be as follows
$6500.00 (total account balance in client account) – $2500.00 (full bonus amount credited to the account)
This $4000.00 may be withdrawn at any time after the bonus cancellation request has been approved and processed.
