Limitations: We do not offer any personalized investment advice or recommendations or investment or tax-related advice. Any explanation or information which we give to you as part of a trade, or a copy trade, or about the performance of the trade or copy trade is not intended to be, and should not be considered as any kind of advice.
The TradeOr trading platform is not a market or an exchange and as such the following points are highlighted:
- any trades opened on the TradeOr platform must be closed on the TradeOr platform,
- you can only enter into trades and/ or investments with us through the TradeOr platform and not third-party platforms,
- any product bought on the TradeOr platform can only be sold on the TradeOr platform, and not a third-party platform,
- you cannot transfer the product into your TradeOr account, or out of your TradeOr account or to a third-party account,
- prices quoted on the TradeOr platform will be different from the prices provided by other brokers, the market price, as well as the current prices on any exchanges or trading platforms, and,
- in view of the above, you expressly consent to execute trades through the TradeOr trading platform, outside of a regulated market, multilateral trading facility, or organized trading facility, in the manner described in these Terms and Conditions.
- Prices from TradeOr are independent of prices found elsewhere. You acknowledge that the prices reported by TradeOr for buying and selling are independent and can differ from the prices displayed elsewhere or from other liquidity providers in the interbank changes in liquidity from interbank to TradeOr, an unbalanced position or exposure at TradeOr, or differing expectations of price movements. TradeOr expects that in most cases the prices provided to its Customers will be in line with the general interbank market but does not warrant or imply that this will always be the case.
OTC Margined Trading involves a high amount of risk and is highly speculative. You hereby agree that you are in full understanding and willing to assume the legal, economic, and other risks associated with the trading a margined account, and are willing and able to assume the loss of your entire Risk Capital, defined as those funds, that if lost, would not change your lifestyle or your family’s lifestyle. As such, you further hereby agree that margined trading is not suitable for Retirement Funds. We encourage you to closely manage outstanding open positions and to use prudent money management precautions such as, but not limited to, Stop Loss Orders.
In consideration of TradeOr agreeing to enter into contracts and trades with you for your Account, TradeOr requires you to analyse your financial objectives, financial status, investment constraints and tax situation to determine whether trading is suitable. In addition, we require you to carefully read and acknowledge both this Agreement and the TradeOr Risk Disclosure Statement that outlines without limitation the risks associated with trading a margined account through TradeOr, and the TradeOr copy trading functionality.
Only genuine risk capital should be used. If you do not have capital which you can afford to lose, you should not trade.
You further acknowledge that you could sustain the loss of your entire Risk Capital deposited in your Account and are financially able to withstand any losses incurred.
It is important that you fully understand the risks involved before deciding to trade with us in light of your financial resources, level of experience, and risk appetite. If required, you should seek advice from an independent financial advisor.
Excessive leverage available with Margined accounts can lead to quick losses. You agree that using a high degree of leverage, defined as the use of a small amount of capital to control a larger amount of an Open Position, can result in large losses due to a price change(s) of open contract(s) and trades with TradeOr.
TradeOr provides leverage on most trading products for most customers of 100:1 or more. With 100:1 leverage you have the potential to control $1,000,000 position with $10,000 in an Account. TradeOr encourages you to use only that portion of leverage that you are most comfortable with and to use money management precautions such as, but not limited to, Stop Loss Orders for the purpose of limiting risk. TradeOr reserves, at its sole discretion, the right to reduce or increase the amount of leverage given on any trading product at any time and without notice.
Effect of “Leverage” or “Gearing”. Margin accounts and contracts carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the contract so that transactions are “leveraged” or “geared”. A relatively small market movement may have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit. This may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the firm to maintain your position.
The value of your investments may go up or down.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

Customer acknowledges and agrees that TradeOr accounts are segregated in the TradeOr’s books and records only.
TradeOr account Safety and Security
If we accept your registration, a TradeOr account will be opened for you. The next step would be to choose a username and password to access your TradeOr account. We may also require other security details.
You hereby agree and acknowledge that you are the exclusive owner and solely responsible, for the confidentiality and protection of your TradeOr’s Account number(s) and password(s) that allow you to place online orders and access our electronic trading systems.
You further agree that you will be fully responsible for all activities including brokerage transactions that arise from the use of your Account number(s) and password(s).
You agree to indemnify and hold TradeOr harmless from and if any other person utilizing your confidential information provides instructions to TradeOr that may be contrary to your instructions.
You accept that you are solely responsible for all live trades on your trader account/s if the accounts have been reported as lost or stolen or being used by an unauthorized person.
TradeOr is also not liable should username, password/s, and Account information be obtained knowingly or unknowingly by a third-party and as a result, trades done in your name without your knowledge or authorization.
You will need to change your security details immediately and contact us as soon as possible if you think someone else knows them. This will ensure the integrity of your TradeOr account.
We may suspend or block access to your TradeOr account or block access to our Services if we believe that it is necessary for security or legal reasons. For example, if we think someone may have access to or is using your TradeOr account without your permission.
We may contact you to provide you with new security details or contact you to require you to change your security details.
In respect of the above, you will immediately notify TradeOr in writing or by email of any loss, theft, or unauthorized use of your Account number and/or passwords. TradeOr will suspend your account on positively identifying you as the owner of the TradeOr account. TradeOr cannot close your live trades, and as such access will be provided to you in order that you can close any live trades.
It is your responsibility to take all reasonable steps to keep your TradeOr account safe. Username and password/s are confidential and sensitive and as such, must be kept known only to yourself.
Choosing a password is also critical – a password should use a combination of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, symbols, and numbers. Password has to be unique, so do not utilize any old password previously used by yourself. To further enhance the security, you should also apply two-factor authentication (2FA) to your account
You must, under no circumstances, give any third-party (including minors) any access to and/or control of your TradeOr account. If you elect to give another person access to and/or control of your TradeOr account, you do so at your own risk. We will not be responsible for the decisions of that third party. For example, if they place trades or if they place copy trades and make a loss, we will not refund you that money. We reserve the right to cancel or reject any orders placed by any third party for security and/or legal reasons.
With regard to managed Accounts, a money manager (“Money Manager”) is a person or entity authorized to make decisions with respect to an Account on behalf of the Account’s beneficial owners, including a trustee, custodian, conservator, guardian, executor, administrator, an attorney in fact, or investment advisor or another person to whom a Customer has granted trading authority over an Account.
You understand and agree that TradeOr may, but is not required to, review any action or inaction by a Money Manager with respect to an Account and is not responsible for determining whether a Money Manager’s action or inaction satisfies the standard of care applicable to such Money Manager’s handling of the Account.
You further understand and agree that TradeOr is not responsible for determining the validity of a person’s or entity’s status or capacity to serve as a Money Manager.
You agree to hold TradeOr and its officers, directors, employees, agents and affiliates harmless from any liability, claim, or expense, including attorneys’ fees and disbursements, as incurred, for the actions or non-actions of your Money Manager.
TradeOr does not take responsibility for Money Managers. Should you grant a Money Manager trading discretionary trading authority or control over your Account, you acknowledge that TradeOr does not take any responsibility for any action done by that Third Party on your behalf. You grant the Money Manager trading authority for your Account at your sole, and full risk.
Deposit in your TradeOr account
If your payment method chosen charges us a fee, we may charge you a “transfer fee”.
Funds are not available for trading until they cleared by the respective payment method clearing agent/ house. Once this has been done and we are satisfied that the funds originate from yourself, then funds will be made available on your trading Account.
Under no circumstances will TradeOr accept payment or deposit into an Account by a person or entity other than the person or entity whose name appears on the Account. We may deduct an amount equal to that of the fee from the funds which we are returning.
Under no circumstances will TradeOr make payment to a person or entity other than person or entity whose name appears on the Account.
Under no circumstances will TradeOr transfer funds from one Account with TradeOr to another Account at TradeOr with different Account Authorization information.
In instances where you are closing an Account with instructions to wire the remaining balances, the wire transfer fee will be deducted from the Final Account Balance forwarded to you.
Margins and Deposit requirements
You shall provide and maintain margin in such amounts and in such forms as TradeOr, in its sole discretion, may require.
You agree to deposit by immediate wire transfer such additional margin when and as required by TradeOr and will immediately meet all Margin Calls in such mode of transmission as TradeOr shall, in its sole discretion, designate.
TradeOr may change margin requirements at any time without prior notice. TradeOr retains the right to limit the amount and/or the total number of open positions that you may acquire or maintain at TradeOr. TradeOr reserves the right to close any Customer positions at any time that it deems necessary.
TradeOr shall not be responsible for any loss or damage caused, directly or indirectly, by any events, actions or omissions including but not limited to loss or damage resulting, directly or indirectly, from any delays or inaccuracies in the transmission of orders and/or information due to a breakdown in or failure of any transmission or communication facilities.
For example, in volatile market conditions, a margin call may be delayed resulting in the possibility of a negative usable margin; a margin call may occur even if positions are hedged, in the jurisdictions where hedging is permitted by law, due to rate volatility or daily interest charges or credits.
TradeOr may, in its sole discretion and without notice to you, offset your open positions, roll over your open positions into the next settlement time period, or make or receive delivery on your behalf upon any terms and by any methods deemed reasonable by TradeOr, in its sole discretion.
Terms and/or methods for delivering, offsetting, or rolling over your open positions may differ on a customer-by-customer basis, at TradeOr’s sole discretion.
Rollover rates for open positions are determined by TradeOr and are independent of prices found elsewhere in the Interbank market. You acknowledge that when applicable, all existing Open Positions that remain open over the end of the business day for TradeOr, defined as 5:00 PM EST/EDT, are automatically rolled over to the next available Spot Settlement Date at a net debit or credit to your Account as determined by spot interest rates determined solely by TradeOr. Rollover debits and credits are also influenced by the number of days that the position has to be rolled. For positions that need to be rolled from a spot settlement date from Friday to Monday, the debit or credit will reflect rollover from Friday to Monday or three business days.
- For rollovers from Monday to Tuesday, Tuesday to Wednesday, Wednesday to Thursday, and Thursday to Friday, the rollover debit or credit is for only one business day. If there is a holiday and TradeOr is closed, the rollover would take into consideration the holiday. For example, if Tuesday is a holiday, rollovers from Monday will be for two (2) business days (i.e. from Monday to Wednesday).
- Since rollover debits and credits are determined by the respective short-term spot interest, a large spread can cause a large debt or credit rollover amount. This spread can result but is not limited to, countries tightening of credit conditions in order to dissuade speculators from shorting one trading product versus another. TradeOr reserves the right to change the credits or debits at its sole discretion if the original amounts are in wrong due to an error or omission.
Sweep rates for balances other than USD are determined by TradeOr and may be independent of prices found elsewhere in the Interbank market. Profits that are calculated in a foreign currency are “swept” into dollars when the open positions are closed, and the Profit and Loss realized.
Settlement date offset instructions
Offset instructions on positions open prior to settlement arriving at settlement date must be given to TradeOr at least one to three business days prior to the settlement or value day. Alternatively, enough funds to take delivery or the necessary delivery documents must be in the possession of TradeOr within the same period described above.
If neither instructions, funds nor documents are received, TradeOr may without notice, either offset your position or roll your positions into the next settlement time period or make or receive delivery on your behalf upon such terms and by such methods deemed reasonable by TradeOr in its sole discretion.
Withdraw from your TradeOr account
TradeOr uses a closed-loop policy. This entails that when you deposits funds via one method, you will then need to withdraw the funds via the same method. Once the amount of deposited funds equals the amount of funds withdrawn, the profit remaining can be withdrawn using any payment method you wish.
For example, if you deposit $100 via ‘Bitcoin’, you will then need to withdraw $100 via the same method, i.e. ‘Bitcoin’.
You may not be able to take money out of your TradeOr account if it would leave insufficient funds in your TradeOr account to pay for any unsettled transactions and/or applicable fees or charges.
To protect your money against fraud, we may put a limit on how much can be taken out of your TradeOr account. The minimum amount per withdrawal is set out on our website.
We may charge you a fee each time you take money out. Our fees are available on our website.
Please consider that we take 2-5 business days to process your withdrawal request. Kindly note that it might take a few days for your payment processor to update the balance in your account, depending on your payment processor’s policy and procedures.
Our processing may be delayed if required, including if we have an AML concern. We may, or may not be able to, disclose to you the reasons for such delay.
Getting Quotes and Placing an Order
The TradeOr trading platform, once accessed, will display the indicative price to buy, and the price to sell for each product listed.
This is called a “quote”. A quote is a price offered by a market-maker for the purchase of the sale of a product. So as such, a quote is not an offer by us to buy or sell any products.
When a quote is provided, it may take into account the price received from a broker, the market, any exchanges or trading platforms. There is no obligation to do this, and also under no obligation to ensure that the quotes which are provided are within any specific percentage of such price.
If the prices on a market, exchange or trading platform are distorted, e.g. during a short term price spike, or during pre-market, post-market, or intra-day auction periods, this may also be reflected by similar prices in quotes provided, but there is no obligation to do this.
When the underlying market or exchange is closed, quotes may reflect what is considered to be the current bid and ask price of the relevant product or, if you are trading a CFD, the underlying product, at that time, but there is no obligation to do this.
Quotes are updated constantly and do not remain static, which means that the price to buy or sell may change between the time that you place your order, and the time that the order is executed. The Trading platform will display the price that your order was executed at.
Before you begin to trade, you should obtain a clear understanding of all charges for which you may be liable. These charges will affect your net profit (if any) or increase your loss.
Placing an Order
You can place an order by using our TradeOr trading platform. By placing an order through the Trading or Copy Trading facility, this would be a request by you to purchase or to sell or deal in financial products. This might also include a stop loss, limit order or such other order as may be available on the platform.
We do not accept orders over the phone but may do so at our discretion.
Orders where we reasonably believe are from you and authorized by you and are placed on your TradeOr account will be executed. Take care when placing an order. If you place orders by accident or in error, e.g. if you place multiple orders which are replicated, these will be executed, as this might be a trading strategy you have, there is no check which is done to confirm this.
Once your order is accepted, it will be executed by the Trading platform in accordance with any instructions that you give. This is called a trade. The instructions which are available on our platform may include market orders, limit orders, take profits and stop losses.
Risk-reducing orders or strategies – placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “limit” orders, particularly in volatile market conditions, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. Strategies using combinations of positions, such as “spread” and “straddle” positions may be as risky as taking simple “long” or “short” positions.
There is no guarantee that the TradeOr trading platform will be able to execute stop-loss orders, limit orders or OCO Orders at your order price.
Customer acknowledges and agrees that there may be market, liquidity or other conditions that will prevent TradeOr from executing your specific Stop Loss Orders, Limit Orders or OCO Orders at your designated price. In some cases, the orders will be executed at prices that are less favorable to the price entered and desired by you. You acknowledge and agree that you are still responsible for trades executed at levels different from your orders and that TradeOr is not liable for failure to do so.
There is no guarantee of profit from trading with us. You acknowledge that neither TradeOr nor any of it is representative’s guarantees to you that you will profit from trading.
If you have placed an order during:
- times in which the market of the underlying is suspended (e.g., weekends when the market is closed, or at off-market hours, or due to any other event in which the market of the underlying is suspended), and/or
- during the time the market was open, however, your order is triggered shortly following a suspension,
The order placed will be executed as soon as possible under the circumstances when trading resumes.
We do not and cannot guarantee that your order will be executed at the underlying price upon which the market resumes, or within any range compared to other market prices you may be following.
In this respect, we are not liable for any losses incurred or any other claims you may have in respect of such orders.
We will execute orders received during the normal trading hours.
As you are aware different products have different trading hours – the onus is on you and your responsibility to ensure you are aware of the normal trading hours for the specific products you are trading. The order may be executed outside of normal business hours, however, this will be done at our sole discretion.
Where you place an order when the market is closed, or where the product you are trading has a 24/7 market, but your order is placed during a period where there is limited trading, the availability of the different functionalities which we may provide as part of our services, including instructions which you may give in respect of a trade, may be delayed or may not be available. In this respect, we are not liable for any losses incurred or any other claims you may have with respect to your ability to access certain trading functionalities and instructions.
Volatile market conditions
Trading at times of extraordinarily volatile market conditions, e.g. key news announcements may expose you to additional risks, including the risk that you may not get the price you request. TradeOr cannot and does not guarantee its prices in times of extraordinary market volatility.
Currency fluctuation risk
If you direct TradeOr to enter into any transaction:
- any profit or loss arising as a result of a fluctuation in the rates affecting such a transaction will be entirely for your Account and risk,
- all initial and subsequent deposits for margin purposes shall be made in USD, or another currency which TradeOr may choose to accept, in such amounts as TradeOr may in its sole discretion require, with subsequent deposits being in the same currency as the initial deposit, and
- TradeOr is authorized to convert funds in your Account for margin into and from such foreign currency at a rate of exchange determined by TradeOr in its sole discretion based on then-prevailing money market rates.
Cross trade consent
You hereby acknowledge and agree that TradeOr may act as the counterparty to you for any trade entered for the your undersigned Account.
You hereby consent to any such transaction, subject to the limitations and conditions, if any, contained in the Rules or Regulations of any bank, institution, exchange or board of trade upon which such buy or sell orders are executed, and subject to the limitations and conditions, if any, contained in any applicable regulations of any globally recognized regulatory agency.
Cancellation and Modification requests
You may request to cancel or modify an order which we have not executed. From our end, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to carry out your request. You acknowledge that it may not be possible to cancel or modify an order. It depends on the product that you are trading and whether you are using the Copy Trading facility.
You understand and agree that, if an order cannot be canceled or modified, you are bound by any execution of the original order.
TradeOr is not liable to you if TradeOr is unable to cancel or modify an order.
You further acknowledge that attempts to modify or cancel and replace an order can result in an over the execution of the order or the execution of duplicate orders, that TradeOr’s systems do not prevent over the execution on duplicate orders from occurring, and that you shall be responsible for all such executions.
You agree not to assume that any order has been executed or canceled until Customer has received confirmation from TradeOr regarding order execution.
You are responsible for knowing the status of your pending orders before entering additional orders.
You agree to contact TradeOr in the event you are unclear on the status of an order.

You acknowledge that TradeOr does not and will not give investment, legal or tax advice or make trading recommendations. You acknowledge that TradeOr makes no representations concerning the tax implications or treatment of contracts.
You agree that you are a self-directed investor and all orders entered are unsolicited and based on your own investment decision.
All Market Recommendations made by TradeOr or any representative of TradeOr are for informational purposes only. Any decision by you to buy or sell is an independent decision by you. Market recommendations made by TradeOr or a representative of TradeOr do not constitute an offer to sell or buy from TradeOr or from any other source that may provide straight-through processing prices to you.
TradeOr and its employees are not investment advisor(s) and have no fiduciary duty to you and therefore are not liable for any losses incurred by yourself as a result of information or any recommendations made by TradeOr or a representative of TradeOr. You are at Risk if TradeOr should go out of business.
You agree that neither TradeOr nor any of its employees may be your duly authorized representative and that you will neither solicit nor rely upon TradeOr or any of its employees for any such advice.
You understand that you are solely responsible for all orders entered, including but not limited to trade qualifiers, the number of trades entered, the suitability of any trade(s), investment strategies and risks associated with each trade, and will not hold TradeOr or any of its employees liable for those investment decisions.

You hereby agree to hold TradeOr and its officers, directors, employees, agents and affiliates harmless from any liability, financial or otherwise, or expense (including attorneys’ fees and disbursements), as incurred, as a result of any losses or damages you may suffer with respect to any such decisions, instructions, transactions or strategies employed in your Account by you or your duly authorized representative, or as a result of any breach by you of any of the covenants, representations, acknowledgments or warranties herein.
There is no guarantee that TradeOr as a business will be profitable. Consequently, there exists a credit risk that TradeOr may be subject to losses, which could, in turn, jeopardize the capital that you have in your Accounts. You acknowledge that in the event of insolvency, you can only look to TradeOr for performance and return of all Collateral and Margin that you may have at TradeOr.
Since that same priority has not been given to funds used for trading, if TradeOr becomes insolvent and you have a claim for amounts deposited or profits earned on transactions with TradeOr, your claim may not receive a priority. Without a priority, you are a general creditor and your claim will be paid, along with the claims of other general creditors, from any monies still available after priority claims are paid. Even customer funds that TradeOr keeps separate from its own operating funds may not be safe from the claims of other general and priority creditors.
Selling the business
TradeOr may decide to exit the Business. As a result, you agree and acknowledge that TradeOr may liquidate all your positions, and return margined funds to you at the sole discretion of TradeOr, at any time and for any reason. TradeOr Customers do not hold TradeOr liable for any loss as a result of the liquidation of the Customers position either on an actual basis or as a result of missed profit opportunities.

We are dedicated to providing a fair and consistent service to everyone. We believe that everyone who contacts us has the right to be heard and understood, and also respected.
We believe that our staff has the same rights, and we must provide a safe working environment for our staff. We must also ensure the efficient and effective operation of our business so that we can provide a good service to everyone who is using our business.
We may decide to restrict access to our service where we consider someone’s actions or behavior are likely to have a negative effect on our staff or our work.
This policy sets out the kinds of actions and behavior that may have a negative effect, and what we will do in these circumstances. This policy applies to everyone who interacts or communicates with us, including clients, potential clients, affiliates, and users of our means of communication – email, chat, and telephone.
We recognize that some people may have difficulties in expressing themselves or communicating clearly, especially when anxious or upset. We also understand that some people may find it difficult to identify what impact their behavior might have on other people.
All our staff has the right not to be subjected to aggressive, offensive, or abusive actions, language or behavior, regardless of the circumstances. This means any actions or behavior that could cause staff to feel intimidated, threatened or offended. These include, but are not limited to – threats, physical violence, personal verbal abuse, derogatory remarks, and rudeness, whether made to the member of staff directly or elsewhere. Deliberately provocative or inflammatory statements and unsubstantiated allegations can also amount to abusive actions or behavior.
Violence can be defined in various ways – it also includes behavior or language, whether oral or written, that may cause staff to feel afraid, threatened or abused.
If someone makes unreasonable demands on us or our staff or is unreasonably persistent, that may have an impact on our ability to review the person’s complaint or the complaints of other people who are using the services. Some examples include the following: requesting responses within an unreasonable timescale; insisting on speaking to or corresponding with a particular member of staff, frequent phone calls, emails, or online chats; repeatedly changing the substance of the complaint or raising unrelated concerns.
Examples of unreasonable persistence include: continual refusal to accept that a decision has been made in relation to a complaint; insisting that we answer questions when we have done so or explained why we will not; persistent refusal to accept explanations relating to what we can or can’t do; sending emails to multiple members of staff; or repeatedly trying to revisit a case through our internal processes, once those processes have come to an end.
When we consider that a person’s actions or behavior are likely to have a negative effect, we will tell them why and we will give them the opportunity to modify their actions or behavior. If the actions or behavior continue, we will take steps to prevent or minimize the negative effects. Wherever possible, we will continue with our review of the person’s complaint. We will try to ensure that any action we take is the minimum required to protect our staff and to ensure that they can work effectively.
Our staff may either place a caller on hold or end the telephone call if the caller is aggressive, offensive or abusive, or is making unreasonable demands. The same approach will be used for online chats. Staff are accountable for their actions and are required to log all instances of when calls have been terminated, noting the reason(s) for ending the call. All telephone calls and online chats are recorded for service and training purposes.
It may be necessary to apply restrictions to someone’s contact with us. A decision to do this may be taken by any of our managers. Some of the options that we may consider are:
Read and file future emails and chat correspondence but acknowledge or respond to it only if the person is raising new information or making a new complaint,
Requesting a person to transfer any funds they own from their account, and subsequently close their account with us. Once the closure of the account has occurred, to restrict or block future contact from a person.
We will record any incidents which lead us to take action under this policy, and what action we have taken to address the issue.
Report the matter to the Police or appropriate governing body, or take legal action. In such cases, we may not give the person prior warning of taking that action.
Anyone who is unhappy with a decision we have made under this policy may submit a complaint to our email. We will consider it in line with our client policies in place at the given time.
