Customer Disclosure Statement

You understand that you are responsible for monitoring the available capital in your account and that you must comply with all margin requirements and calls, regardless of whether or not you are notified by Questrade that a trade you are considering entering into may create a margin call. Because of the use of margin, your losses could exceed the amount invested by you. You may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds and any additional funds you may be required to deposit to maintain a position which is moving against you. If you do not provide the required additional funds within the time required, your position may be liquidated at a loss, and you will be liable for any deficit in your account. Questrade has made no representations to you as to expected return on your investment. You understand that Questrade does not monitor account profit and loss.

Using borrowed money to finance the purchase of securities involves greater risk than using cash resources only. If you borrow money to purchase securities, your responsibility to repay the loan and pay interest as required by its terms remains the same even if the value of the securities purchased declines.
