The considerable opportunities are counterbalanced by corresponding risks, which may result not only in a total loss of the capital invested, but also in losses exceeding this amount. For this reason, this type of transaction requires in-depth knowledge of these financial products, the securities markets, securities trading techniques and strategies. Automatic trading involves a higher level of risk, as the number and size of orders are determined automatically.
