The content of this article is provided for information purposes only and is not intended to be, nor does it constitute, any form of personal advice. Investments in a currency other than sterling are exposed to currency exchange risk. Currency exchange rates are constantly changing, which may affect the value of the investment in sterling terms. You could lose money in sterling even if the stock price rises in the currency of origin. Stocks listed on overseas exchanges may be subject to additional dealing and exchange rate charges, and may have other tax implications, and may not provide the same, or any, regulatory protection as in the UK.

It is against our terms and conditions to advertise or solicit for business anywhere on our discussion boards without our permission.

Advertising, promotion & solicitation includes, but is not necessarily limited to:

  • offering items for sale
  • asking people to email you in connection with a product or service your offer
  • posting the phone number of your business
  • posting your own website address, if that site has any commercial element to it (eg, is either a business, or carries adverts)
  • posting links that include a referral code or offering to refer people for some sort of benefit of reward
  • pretending to be a ‘satisfied customer’ of something in which you have commercial or beneficial interest

The rule against Advertising, Promotion or Solicitation is strictly enforced, and violations could result in the cancellation of your registration.
