*Professional or Non-Professional 
The exchanges define strict investor classification criteria that differentiates professional from non-professional investors. Vendors and banks must diligently apply these rules, when classifying the users applying to subscriptions for live market data. For this reason, if the classification given by a client is not reflecting the definition given by the exchange, the subscription, consequently the relative monthly fee, will be retroactively adjusted to the correct segment, aligning the investor's classification to the requirements of the exchange. Please refer to the rules reported in the subscription tool on the platform to read more about the criteria applied by each exchange. In this process CornèrTrader can not influence in any way the segmentation rules as defined by the exchanges and must apply these very strictly.

Forex Spreads may become wider when liquidity drops in the given currency cross or when large positions are traded.

Slippage may occur in instances with extraordinary volatile markets.

The specified margin collateral must be available at all times. In case of exceeding the limits all positions may be closed. Attempts to reach the client will be made if possible.

The bank might change its commissions and fees without providing prior notice to clients.

In case of withdrawal requests for the total amount of funds (without the intention of an account closure), a minimum of 250CHF will be blocked to keep the account opened and the login access to the platform as active. Accordingly to the instruments traded and/or the subscriptions activated by the client, a higher amount can be requested.

Prior to the closure of the account, it is recommended to print all the financial statements and relevant account statements from the platform. Requests coming after the closure might require a longer time to be executed and can be subject to an extra fee.
