Please take a moment to read the following important information from Monex.
Protecting your investment funds - Taking trading advice
Monex Securities Australia Pty Ltd is licensed in Australia to give General Advice. This type of advice DOES NOT take into account your personal financial situation, your needs or your goals. Staff of Monex can give general advice about the financial products that we provide access to, but we will not give you personal advice under any circumstances. Please report to us immediately if anybody claiming to represent Monex is offering you personal advice.
Be extremely careful about taking trading advice or investment tips from strangers and even from friends, especially if it is a person that you have met through social media. There are many examples of so called “friends” giving people advice to invest in stocks which subsequently collapse in price, causing significant financial loss.
You can further protect your investments by ensuring that you do not place all of your eggs in one basket. Spreading your investments across multiple securities will reduce the risk of one bad investment having too much of an impact on your account. If anybody suggests that you should invest a large percentage of your funds into any single investment, you should be very suspicious.
