Have you invested in securities or derivatives in the past?


Leverage involves the use of borrowed capital, to gain exposure to a larger investment than the initial deposit, which results in gains or losses being magnified. Leverage allows an investor to take on a high degree of market risk with only a relatively small deposit.


How does leverage differ from a margin requirement?
They do not differ. They are the same.
Margin is the initial amount invested. Leverage refers to the strategy of using an initial investment to gain exposure to a larger investment.


When a financial instrument you invest in has a high volatility and you use leverage (ie, only place a margin deposit to acquire it), it means your investment returns will register a:
higher profit or higher loss
higher profit or lower loss
lower profit or higher loss
All of the above


Which of the statements below is not an accurate description relating to a Contract for Difference ("CFD")?
A CFD is a contract between two parties, typically described as "buyer" and "seller". The contract stipulates that the seller will pay to the buyer, or vice versa, the difference between the current value of an asset and its value at a time agreed upon in the future.
With a CFD arrangement, differences in the price of a goods or securities are made in settlement through cash payments, rather than the delivery of physical goods or securities.
CFDs provide investors with interests or rights in the underlying asset over which a position is taken.
Under a CFD arrangement, the buyer does not own the underlying assets. Nor is the seller obliged to deliver the underlying securities.
