Article 14 Personalized Risk Management and Trader Conduct in the Advanced, Professional, Expert, and Fund manager accounts
14.1 A trader in the Advanced, Professional, Expert, and Fund manager account stages will act as a ‘Strategy/Signal Provider’. A “Strategy/Signal Provider” is in the business of developing trading strategies, providing trading signals, and/or managing Lux’s subaccounts ; the Strategy/Signal Provider is a temporary hire, paid solely on performance, and according to St. Lucia’s labor Law.
14.2 Personalized Risk Management Rules: All traders, upon entering the second (advanced) stage with Lux Trading Firm, hereby agree to adhere to a set of personalized risk management rules, as provided by the Risk Desk of Lux Trading Firm. These rules are designed to mitigate potential financial risks associated with trading activities and ensure responsible trading practices. Traders acknowledge that failure to comply with these rules may lead to disciplinary actions, including expulsion from trading privileges.
14.3 Risk Desk Guidelines: Upon starting the second stage, traders will receive a personalized set of risk management rules from the Risk Desk via email. These guidelines will be tailored to individual trading styles, risk tolerance levels, and market conditions. Traders are required to follow these guidelines strictly, while conducting trades for Lux Trading Firm.
14.4 Compliance and Monitoring: Traders acknowledge that Lux Trading Firm reserves the right to monitor trading activities and assess compliance with the personalized risk management rules. The Risk Desk will periodically review traders’ adherence to the guidelines and offer guidance as needed to ensure effective risk management.
14.5 Expulsion Criteria: Traders are hereby informed that any breach of the personalized risk management rules will be subject to disciplinary action. In the event of three documented breaches, Lux Trading Firm reserves the right to expel the trader from further trading and close their trading account.
14.6 Amendment of Guidelines: Lux Trading Firm reserves the right to modify, update, or amend the personalized risk management guidelines as market conditions evolve, to enhance risk mitigation strategies, or for any other legitimate reasons. Traders will be notified of any such changes in a timely manner.
14.7 By proceeding to the second (advanced) stage with Lux Trading Firm, traders affirm their understanding of and consent to the above-stated Personalized Risk Management Rules and Trader Expulsion Clause.
14.8 Once you pass to the live stages, we will provide you with a live account, backed by our capital. The capital in your Funded Account is notional and may not match the amount of capital on deposit with the Broker. A Funded Account is notionally funded when actual funds in the account (i.e., the equity in a Funded Account represented by the amount of capital) differs from the nominal account size (i.e., the size of the Funded Account that establishes the initial account value and level of trading). Notional funds are the difference between nominal account size and actual capital in a Funded Account.
Use of notional funding does not change the trading level or that the account may trade in any manner differently than if notional funds were not used. In particular, the same conditions and rules applicable to a soft breach, hard breach, Daily Loss Limit, Max Trailing Drawdown, stop loss and position limits apply.
14.9 Counterparty to traders’ positions: for purposes of managing risk and minimizing transaction costs, we may offset or negate market risk and act as the direct counterparty to certain trades initiated in the Account. Such trades are executed at prices provided by the broker, our real-time market data feed, or our liquidity provider. This framework is intended to ensure you receive real market execution on your trades, while simultaneously allowing us to manage risk dynamically by routing existing positions or future orders to third parties for execution as we deem appropriate. We believe that such real market execution and dynamic risk management would not be possible or as cost-effective if trades were executed in simulated accounts. Regardless of whether we act as counterparty to your trades, the gain, or loss, on your Funded Account is not calculated differently. However, when we act as the counterparty to your trades, there is an inherent potential conflict of interest because your trades do not result in net gain or loss to us, as your trades would if we were not the direct counterparty.
