It is important to note that all trades involve risks and so does your invested money. Higher risk is more correlated to trades that have speculative investments that are restrictive. They are largely products like restricted options, rolling spot margin forex, contracts for difference that are complex, this is due to leverage. Investing into restrictive speculative investments is always accompanied by a higher risk of losing invested capital. However with Zeus Capital Markets, it is difficult for retail investors to lose more than their invested amount when they are trading restricted speculative investments. This is because retail investors are awarded negative balance protection.
On the other hand, professional clients who have already been classified as such, can possibly lose more money than they invest and that means their capital is at higher risk.

According to the regulations, accounts for retail investors can not go below 50% of their restrictive speculative investments of the required margins used for their net equity. Should the unexpected happen and the accounts fall below 50% for the margins required in restrictive speculative investments, we will be left with no choice other than to close that account in accordance with the procedures of the market as soon as conditions allow it.
