Important Notice on the Increasing Market Volatility
In view of the multiple recent and upcoming events, please be aware of the increasing market volatility across major asset classes in the financial markets. The above-mentioned events include:
- The ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict
- Expected rise of interest rates by global central banks multiple times this year to combat inflation
- Continuous development surrounding COVID-19, its variants and changing government restrictions
During the period of expected volatility and unpredictability, please ensure that your margin collateral is properly managed in the period leading up to, during, and shortly after the events – as such periods of heightened volatility may create possibilities of significant price gaps and periods of illiquidity, which can potentially put your account on a margin call.
We would like to stress that Stop Loss Orders are not guaranteed to be filled at your order level; Stop Orders are converted to Market Orders once triggered, and dislocations in available liquidity could result in significant slippage on Stop Orders.
Blackwell Global will closely monitor market volatility and liquidity and will keep you updated of any necessary measures to help you better manage the potential risk through this period of volatility.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
