What are the electronic trading risks that I need to take note of?
- Live Prices
The speed and quality of your internet connection will affect the performance and accuracy of live prices on our online trading platforms and mobile trading applications. Broadband internet connection is recommended for online trading.
Always keep your internet trading password confidential and change it regularly. Clear your browser’s cache and history after each session so that your account information is removed. You are advised not to use your browser’s “Auto Complete” function to save your User ID and Password as this function stores and lists possible matches from entries that you have typed previously.
- Virus, Spywares and Adwares
Always install the latest anti-virus software and spyware programs on your computer or mobile. Regularly scan your computer or mobile to quarantine and delete any Virus, Spyware or Adware that may be present. Avoid downloading programs and email attachments from suspicious unknown sources.
Phishing is an act of acquiring sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. It is typically carried out by email or instant messaging, and often directs users to enter details at a website.
NEVER reveal your password to anyone. Be suspicious of any email or instant message asking you to provide sensitive account information. If you receive such emails or instant messages, do not reply or click on the links in the email or instant message.
- Wireless Network
Wireless networking works by sending information over radio waves so it can be more vulnerable to intruders. Here are some ways to keep your wireless network secure:
- Make your own unique and difficult-to-guess Service Set Identifier (SSID).
- Change the default administrator password and username for your router.
In the electronic trading world, you may encounter situations such as being unable to withdraw erroneous orders in time due to the speed of the internet connection, or experience delays in order transmission and confirmation of order execution.
Please contact your Trading Representative or our Customer Service if you require any assistance.
