IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person or entity who opens an account. We are required by law to ask you to provide your name, address, date of birth and other information about you, your organization or persons related to your organization that will allow us to identify you before we approve your account. We also may ask you to provide certain identifying documents, such as your drivers license or passport or your organizations articles of incorporation and may obtain credit and other consumer reports to assist us in verifying your identity and in determining whether you satisfy our account criteria. Unless you provide the requested information and documentation, we may not be able to open your account.

By clicking the Continue button below, you agree to provide the information and documentation requested by IB and consent to IB's acquisition of credit and other consumer reports about you for the purposes described above.

Customer Agreement

Interactive Brokers Futures Arbitration Agreement

Any controversy or claim between Interactive Brokers LLC ("IB") and the undersigned ("Customer") arising out of or relating to Customer's Account with IB, to transactions between IB and Customer, to the Customer Agreement with IB or any other agreement between IB and Customer, or to the breach of any such transaction or agreement shall, except as provided below, be resolved by arbitration before a forum chosen in accordance with the procedure set out below. If, by reason of any applicable statute, regulation, exchange rule or otherwise, Customer's advance agreement to submit a controversy to arbitration would not be enforceable by IB, this provision shall not permit Customer to enforce IB's advance agreement to submit to arbitration. Any award rendered in any arbitration conducted pursuant to this agreement shall be final, binding and enforceable in accordance with the laws of the State of Connecticut and judgment may be entered on any such award by any court having jurisdiction thereof.

At such time as Customer notifies IB that Customer intends to submit a controversy to arbitration, or at such time as IB notifies Customer that IB intends to submit a controversy to arbitration, Customer will have the opportunity to choose a forum from a list of qualified forums provided by IB. A "qualified forum" is an organization whose procedures for conducting arbitrations meet Acceptable Practices established by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC").

As required by CFTC Rule 166.5, IB will pay any incremental fees which may be assessed by a qualified forum for provision of a mixed arbitration panel, unless the arbitrators hearing the controversy determine that Customer has acted in bad faith in initiating or conducting the arbitration. A "mixed arbitration panel" is an arbitration panel composed of one or more persons, a majority of whom are not members or associated with a member, or an employee of the designated contract market (upon which the transaction giving rise to the dispute was executed or could have been executed) and who are not otherwise associated with the designated contract market.

In connection with this Arbitration Agreement, IB is required to furnish to Customer the following statement, pursuant to Rule 166.5 of the CFTC (for the purposes of the following, "you" or "your" means IB's Customer):

THREE FORUMS EXIST FOR THE RESOLUTION OF COMMODITY DISPUTES: CIVIL COURT LITIGATION, REPARATIONS AT THE COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION ("CFTC"), AND ARBITRATION CONDUCTED BY A SELF-REGULATORY OR OTHER PRIVATE ORGANIZATION.

THE CFTC RECOGNIZES THAT THE OPPORTUNITY TO SETTLE DISPUTES BY ARBITRATION MAY IN SOME CASES PROVIDE MANY BENEFITS TO CUSTOMERS, INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO OBTAIN AN EXPEDITIOUS AND FINAL RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES WITHOUT INCURRING SUBSTANTIAL COSTS. THE CFTC REQUIRES, HOWEVER, THAT EACH CUSTOMER INDIVIDUALLY EXAMINE THE RELATIVE MERITS OF ARBITRATION AND THAT YOUR CONSENT TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT BE VOLUNTARY.

BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU: (1) MAY BE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SUE IN A COURT OF LAW; AND (2) ARE AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY ARBITRATION OF ANY CLAIMS OR COUNTERCLAIMS WHICH YOU OR IB MAY SUBMIT TO ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. YOU ARE NOT, HOWEVER, WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO ELECT INSTEAD TO PETITION THE CFTC TO INSTITUTE REPARATIONS PROCEEDINGS UNDER SECTION 14 OF THE COMMODITY EXCHANGE ACT WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISPUTE WHICH MAY BE ARBITRATED PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT. IN THE EVENT A DISPUTE ARISES, YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED IF IB INTENDS TO SUBMIT THE DISPUTE TO ARBITRATION. IF YOU BELIEVE A VIOLATION OF THE COMMODITY EXCHANGE ACT IS INVOLVED AND IF YOU PREFER TO REQUEST A SECTION 14 "REPARATIONS" PROCEEDING BEFORE THE CFTC, YOU WILL HAVE 45 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF SUCH NOTICE IN WHICH TO MAKE THAT ELECTION.

YOU NEED NOT SIGN THIS AGREEMENT TO MAINTAIN AN ACCOUNT WITH IB. HOWEVER, DECLINING THIS AGREEMENT MAY RESULT IN REDUCED TRADING LIMITS.

DISCLOSURE OF RISKS OF MARGIN TRADING

Interactive Brokers (“IB”) is furnishing this document to you to provide some basic facts about purchasing securities and futures contracts on margin, and to alert you to the risks involved with trading in a margin account. “Margin trading” can mean engaging in a transaction in which securities are purchased partially through a margin loan extended to you by IB, for which the securities act as collateral. Margin trading can also mean trading investment products such as futures or options in which an initial “margin” deposit is made to secure your obligations and further margin may be required to secure your obligations as the value of your positions changes.

This document also describes special risks associated with trading on margin in an IRA account, as described below.

Before trading stocks, futures or other investment products in a margin account, you should carefully review the margin agreement provided by IB and you should consult IB regarding any questions or concerns you may have with your margin accounts.

When you purchase securities, you may pay for the securities in full or you may borrow part of the purchase price from IB. If you choose to borrow funds from IB, you will open a margin account with the firm. The securities purchased are IB’s collateral for the loan to you. If the securities or futures contracts in your account decline in value, so does the value of the collateral supporting your loan, and, as a result, IB can take action, such as sell securities or other assets in any of your accounts held with IB or issue a margin call, in order to maintain the required equity in the account.

You should understand that pursuant to the IB Margin Agreement, IB generally will not issue margin calls, that IB will not credit your account to meet intraday margin deficiencies, and that IB generally will liquidate positions in your account in order to satisfy margin requirements without prior notice to you and without an opportunity for you to choose the positions to be liquidated or the timing or order of liquidation.

In addition, it is important that you fully understand the risks involved in trading securities or futures contracts on margin. These risks include the following:

You can lose more funds than you deposit in the margin account. A decline in the value of securities or futures contracts that are purchased on margin may require you to provide additional funds to IB or you must put up margin to avoid the forced sale of those securities or futures contracts or other assets in your account(s).

IB can force the sale of securities or other assets in your account(s). If the equity in your account falls below the maintenance margin requirements, or if IB has higher “house” requirements, IB can sell the securities or futures contracts or other assets in any of your accounts held at the firm to cover the margin deficiency. You also will be responsible for any shortfall in the account after such a sale.

IB can sell your securities or other assets without contacting you. Some investors mistakenly believe that a firm must contact them for a margin call to be valid, and that the firm cannot liquidate securities or other assets in their accounts to meet the call unless the firm has contacted them first. This is not the case. As noted above, IB generally will not issue margin calls and can immediately sell your securities or futures contracts without notice to you in the event that your account has insufficient margin.

You are not entitled to choose which securities or futures contracts or other assets in your account(s) are liquidated or sold to meet a margin call. IB has the right to decide which positions to sell in order to protect its interests.

IB can increase its “house” maintenance margin requirements at any time and is not required to provide you with advance written notice. These changes in firm policy often take effect immediately. Your failure to maintain adequate margin in the event of an increased margin rate generally will cause IB to liquidate or sell securities or futures contracts in your account(s).

If IB chooses to issue a margin call rather than immediately liquidating undermargined positions, you are not entitled to an extension of time on the margin call.

Special Risks of Trading on Margin in an IRA Account:

Margin Trading in an IRA Account May Not Be Suitable Depending on Your Financial Circumstances. Trading requiring margin (including futures trading and short option trading) involves a high degree of risk and may result in a loss of funds greater than the amount you have deposited in your IRA account. You must determine whether trading on margin in an IRA account is advisable based on your financial circumstances, your tolerance for risk, the number of years until your retirement, and other factors. You should consult a professional financial advisor to determine if margin trading in your IRA account is consistent with your financial goals.

You Must Closely Monitor Your Account and Your Trading to Avoid Adverse Tax Consequences: Trading requiring margin (including futures trading and short option trading) may require the deposit of additional funds to your account to maintain sufficient margin. At the same time, provisions of the Internal Revenue Code place limits on the amount of funds that can be deposited to an IRA account. Deposits to the account in excess of such limits may cause adverse tax consequences, including but not limited to forfeiture of tax-advantaged status of the IRA account and/or penalties. As described above, IB will liquidate positions in your account in the event that you cannot or do not deposit sufficient funds to satisfy margin requirements.

RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT

Risk Disclosure Statement for Futures and Options

This brief statement does not disclose all of the risks and other significant aspects of trading in futures and options. In light of the risks, you should undertake such transactions only if you understand the nature of the contracts (and contractual relationships) into which you are entering and the extent of your exposure to risk. Trading in futures and options is not suitable for many members of the public. You should carefully consider whether trading is, appropriate for you in light of your experience, objectives, financial resources and other relevant circumstances.

Futures

1. Effect of "Leverage" or "Gearing'

Transactions in futures carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the futures contract so that transactions are "leveraged" or "geared". A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit: this may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the firm to maintain your position. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the time prescribed, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit.

2. Risk-reducing Orders or Strategies.

The placing of certain orders (e.g. "stop-loss" order, where permitted under local law, or "stop-limit" orders) which are intended to limit losses to certain amounts may not be effective because market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. Strategies using combinations of positions, such as "spread" and "straddle" positions may be as risky as taking simple "long" or "short" positions.

Options

3. Variable Degree of Risk

Transactions in options carry a high degree of risk. Purchasers and sellers of options should familiarize themselves with the type of option (i.e. put or call) which they contemplate trading and the associated risks. You should calculate the extent to which the value of the options must increase for your position to become profitable, taking into account the premium and all transaction costs.

The purchaser of options may offset or exercise the options or allow the options to expire. The exercise of an option results either in a cash settlement or in the purchaser acquiring or delivering the underlying interest. If the option is on a future, the purchaser will acquire a futures position with associated liabilities for margin (see the section on Futures above). If the purchased options expire worthless, you will suffer a total loss of your investment which will consist of the option premium plus transaction costs. If you are contemplating purchasing deep-out-of-the-money options, you should be aware that the chance of such options becoming profitable ordinarily is remote.

Selling ("writing" or "granting") an option generally entails considerably greater risk than purchasing options. Although the premium received by the seller is fixed, the seller may sustain a loss well in excess of that amount. The seller will be liable for additional margin to maintain the position if the market moves unfavourably. The seller will also be exposed to the risk of the purchaser exercising the option and the seller will be obligated to either settle the option in cash or to acquire or deliver the underlying interest. If the option is on a future, the seller will acquire a position in a future with associated liabilities for margin (see the section on Futures above). If the option is "covered" by the seller holding a corresponding position in the underlying interest or a future or another option, the risk may be reduced. If the option is not covered,'the risk of loss can be unlimited.

Certain exchanges in some jurisdictions permit deferred payment of the option premium, exposing the purchaser to liability for margin payments not exceeding the amount of the premium. The purchaser is still subject to the risk of losing the premium and transaction costs. When the option is exercised or expires, the purchaser is responsible for any unpaid premium outstanding at that time.

Additional Risks Common to Futures and Options

4. Terms and Conditions of Contracts

You should ask the firm with which you deal about the terms and conditions of the specific futures or options which you are trading and associated obligations (e.g., the circumstances under which you may become obligated to make or take delivery of the underlying interest of a futures contract and, in respect of options, expiration dates and restrictions on the time for exercise). Under certain circumstances the specifications of outstanding contracts (including the exercise price of an option) may be modified by the exchange or clearing house to reflect changes in the underlying interest.

5. Suspension or Restriction of Trading and Pricing Relationships

Market conditions (e.g. illiquidity) and/or the operation of the rules of certain markets (e.g. the suspension of trading in any contract or contract month because of price limits or "circuit breakers") may increase the risk of loss by making it difficult or impossible to effect transactions or liquidate/offset positions. If you have sold options, this may increase the risk of loss.

Further, normal pricing relationships between the underlying interest and the future, and the underlying interest and the option may not exist. This can occur when, for example, the futures contract underlying the option is subject to price limits while the option is not. The absence of an underlying reference price may make it difficult to judge "fair" value.

6. Deposited Cash and Property

You should familiarize yourself with the protections accorded money or other property you deposit for domestic and foreign transactions, particularly in the event of a firm insolvency or bankruptcy. The extent to which you may recover your money or property may be governed by specific legislation or local rules. In some jurisdictions, property which had been specifically identifiable as your own will be prorated in the same manner as cash for purposes of distribution in the event of a shortfall.

7. Commission and Other Charges

Before you begin to trade, you should obtain a clear explanation of all commission, fees and other charges for which you will be liable. These charges will affect your net profit (if any) or increase your loss.

8. Transactions in Other Jurisdictions

Transactions on markets in other jurisdictions, including markets formally linked to a domestic market, may expose you to additional risk. Such markets may be subject to regulation which may offer different or diminished investor protection. Before you trade you should enquire about any rules relevant to your particular transactions. Your local regulatory authority will be unable to compel the enforcement of the rules of regulatory authorities or markets in other jurisdictions where your transactions have been effected. You should ask the firm with which you deal for details about the types of redress available in both your home jurisdiction and other relevant jurisdictions before you start to trade.

9. Currency Risks

The profit or loss in transactions in foreign currency-denominated contracts (whether they are traded in your own or another jurisdiction) will be affected by fluctuations in currency rates where there is a need to convert from the currency denomination of the contract to another currency.

10. Trading Facilities

Most open-outcry and electronic trading facilities are supported by computer-based component systems for the order-routing, execution, matching, registration or clearing of trades. As with all facilities and systems, they are vulnerable to temporary disruption or failure. Your ability to recover certain losses may be subject to limits on liability imposed by the system provider, the market, the clearing house and/or member firms. Such limits may vary; you should ask the firm with which you deal for details in this respect.

11. Electronic Trading

Trading on an electronic trading system may differ not only from trading in an open- outcry market but also from trading on other electronic trading systems. If you undertake transactions on an electronic trading system, you will be exposed to risks associated with the system including the failure of hardware and software. The result of any system failure may be that your order is either not executed according to your instructions or is not executed at all. Your ability to recover certain losses which are particularly attributable to trading on a market using an electronic trading system may be limited to less than the amount of your total loss.

12. Off-exchange Transactions

In some jurisdictions, and only then in restricted circumstances, firms are permitted to effect off-exchange transactions. The firm with which you deal may be acting as your counterparty to the transaction. It may be difficult or impossible to liquidate an existing position, to assess the value, to determine a fair price or to assess the exposure to risk. For these reasons, these transactions may involve increased risks.

Off-exchange transactions may be less regulated or subject to a separate regulatory regime. Before you undertake such transactions, you should familiarize yourself with applicable rules.

OCC Risk Disclosure

Because you have specified futures trading permissions, you are required to read by scrolling on the right, & sign the following CFTC Risk Disclosure. Please read the following document and acknowledge your acceptance at the bottom by signing your electronic signature. This industry standard document is written by the U.S. Commodities Futures Trading Commission.

OCC RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

OCC Risk Disclosure

I acknowledge that:

1. I have received and carefully read each section of, and the supplements to, the Options Clearing Corporation ("OCC") document "Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options " (the "OCC Risk Disclosure Document") ;

2. I have received and carefully read the "Special Statement for Uncovered Option Writers" (set forth below);

3. I have received and carefully read the "Disclosure Regarding Interactive Brokers' Procedures for Allocating Equity Option Exercise Notices Assigned by OCC" ("IB Exercise Allocation Disclosure "); (Requires Adobe Reader. Download Reader.)

4.

5. I understand the OCC Risk Disclosure Document, the "Special Statement for Uncovered Option Writers" and the IB Exercise Allocation Disclosure, each of which is in a language I fully understand; and

6. If there is any aspect of the OCC Risk Disclosure Document, the "Special Statement for Uncovered Option Writers" or the IB Exercise Allocation Disclosure that I do not understand, I shall consult my independent adviser and obtain a full understanding of such term(s).

Special Statement for Uncovered Option Writers

There are special risks associated with uncovered option writing which expose the investor to potentially significant loss. Therefore, this type of strategy may not be suitable for all customers approved for options transactions.

1. The potential loss of uncovered call writing is unlimited. The writer of an uncovered call is in an extremely risky position, and may incur large losses if the value of the underlying instrument increases above the exercise price.

2. As with writing uncovered calls, the risk of writing uncovered put options is substantial. The writer of an uncovered put option bears a risk of loss if the value of the underlying instrument declines below the exercise price. Such loss could be substantial if there is a significant decline in the value of the underlying instrument.

3. Uncovered option writing is thus suitable only for the knowledgeable investor who understands the risks, has the financial capacity and willingness to incur potentially substantial losses, and has sufficient liquid assets to meet applicable margin requirements. In this regard, if the value of the underlying instrument moves against an uncovered writer's options position, the investor's broker may request significant additional margin payments. If an investor does not make such margin payments, the broker may liquidate stock or options positions in the investor's account, with little or no prior notice in accordance with the investor's margin agreement.

4. For combination writing, where the investor writes both a put and a call on the same underlying instrument, the potential risk is unlimited.

5. If a secondary market in options were to become unavailable, investors could not engage in closing transactions, and an option writer would remain obligated until expiration or assignment.

6. The writer of an American-style option is subject to being assigned an exercise at any time after he has written the option until the option expires. By contrast, the writer of a European-style option is subject to exercise assignment only during the exercise period.

NOTE: It is expected that you will read the booklet entitled CHARACTERISTICS AND RISKS OF STANDARDIZED OPTIONS available from your broker. In particular your attention is directed to the chapter entitled Risks of Buying and Writing Options. This statement is not intended to enumerate all of the risks entailed in writing uncovered options.

Risks of Trading Equity Options and Terms and Conditions for Trading Equity Options

Customers trading equity options understand and agree to the following:

1. Customer understands that trading equity options is highly speculative in nature and involves a high degree of risk.

2. Prior to entering into its first equity options transaction through Interactive Brokers (“IB”), Customer shall acknowledge to IB that Customer has read and fully understood: (a) the current Options Clearing Corporation ("OCC") disclosure document "Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options" (the "OCC Document") and (b) the "Special Statement for Uncovered Option Writers." Customer agrees to seek clarification of any term, condition or risk contained in either of these documents prior to making such acknowledgment to IB.

3. Customer is financially able to undertake the risks associated with trading equity options and withstand any losses incurred in connection with such trading (including the total loss of premiums paid by Customer for long put and call options, margin requirements for short put and call options, and transaction costs).

4. Among the risks Customer acknowledges are: (a) option contracts are traded for a specified period of time and have no value after expiration; (b) trading halts in the underlying security, or other trading conditions (for example, volatility, liquidity, systems failures) may cause the trading market for an option (or all options) to be unavailable, in which case, the holder or writer of an option would not be able to engage in a closing transaction and an option writer would remain obligated until expiration or assignment.

5. The IB System is an electronic system and is, therefore, subject to unavailability. Customer represents that it has trading arrangements for the placement of Customer's orders and shall use such arrangements in the event that the IB System becomes unavailable. Although the IB System is designed to perform certain automatic functions, IB does not warrant that the IB System will perform as it is designed to, and IB will not have any liability to Customer for losses or damages which result from such failures of performance or unavailability. Subject to the foregoing, Customer acknowledges that the IB System is designed to automatically liquidate Customer positions if Customer's account equity is not sufficient to meet margin requirements.

6. Customer has reviewed and understands the applicable margin requirements for trading equity options. Customers who want to trade equity options agree to the following terms and conditions:

A. Each equity option transaction entered into is subject to the rules and regulations of the Securities & Exchange Commission, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, the self-regulatory organizations that regulate IB, the relevant options exchange, and the OCC.

B. Equity options traded in the US are issued by the OCC and Customer shall not, alone or in concert with others, exceed the position and exercise limits imposed by exchange rules and regulations.

C. With certain exceptions, IB will not execute a Customer order to purchase an equity option if Customer does not have equity in its account at least equal to the full purchase price of a put or call option (equity options may not be purchased on margin).

D. Customer shall comply with IB margin requirements in connection with Customer's sale of put and call options.

E. Customers who wish to exercise an option on a particular trading day acknowledge that they must provide specific, written instructions to IB using the procedure specified on the IB website before the Close Out Deadline specified. Customer further acknowledges that, absent receipt of such instructions, IB has no obligation to exercise Customer's option on any given trading day or prior to the expiration of the option. Customer acknowledges that, subject to paragraph H below, OCC will automatically exercise any long equity option held by a Customer that is in-the-money by $.01 or more at expiration, absent specific instructions to the contrary provided by Customer to IB using the procedures specified on the IB website.

F. Customer understands that OCC assigns exercises to clearing firms such as IB and Customer acknowledges that it has read and understands the description of the OCC assignment procedures available on request from the OCC as set forth in Chapter VIII of the OCC Document. Customer acknowledges that, upon assignment, Customer shall be required: (1) in the case of an equity option, to deliver or accept the required number of shares of the underlying security, or (2) in the case of an equity index option, to pay or receive the settlement price, in cash. Customer understands that it may not receive notice of an assignment from IB until one or more days following the date of the initial assignment by OCC to IB and that the lack of such notice creates a special risk for uncovered writers of physical delivery call stock options. Customer acknowledges that it has read and understands this risk as described in Chapters VIII and X of the OCC Document.

G. Customer is responsible for entering an offsetting transaction to close out a Customer position, or to exercise an equity option by written e-mail instruction to IB prior to the expiration date, and Customer's failure to do so may result in the equity option expiring worthless, regardless of the monetary value of the equity option on its expiration date.

H. If, prior to expiration of an option contract, Customer does not have sufficient equity to meet the initial margin requirement for the purchase or sale of the underlying security (the higher of IB’s “house” margin requirements or margin requirements mandated by exchanges or regulators), then IB shall have the option, at its discretion, to: (1) decline to purchase or sell such underlying security for the customer’s behalf (e.g., by filing a Contrary Exercise Notice): OR (2) exercise the option and liquidate the underlying security position which results from the exercise of the option contract. If Customer violates the IB Customer Agreement by failing to close out an open option position prior to expiration, which creates a margin deficiency (e.g., upon exercise or automatic exercise of the option), then Customer shall be liable for resulting losses and costs and shall not be entitled to any profits or gains.

I. In connection with the exercise of a long put option that results in a short position in the underlying stock, Customer acknowledges that: (1) short sales may only be effected in a margin account and are subject to initial and maintenance margin requirements; and (2) if IB is unable to borrow such stock on Customer's behalf or if a lender subsequently issues a recall notice for such stock, then IB, without notice to Customer, is authorized by Customer to cover Customer's short position by purchasing stock on the open market at the then current market price and Customer agrees that it shall be liable for any resulting losses and all associated costs incurred by IB. As noted above, the market value of short stock is treated as a debit item to Customer's IB margin account.

CFTC Risk Disclosure

Because you have specified futures trading permissions, you are required to read by scrolling on the right, & sign the following CFTC Risk Disclosure. Please read the following document and acknowledge your acceptance at the bottom by signing your electronic signature. This industry standard document is written by the U.S. Commodities Futures Trading Commission.

Appendix A to CFTC Rule 1.55(c) - Generic Risk Disclosure Statement

Risk Disclosure Statement for Futures and Options

This brief statement does not disclose all of the risks and other significant aspects of trading in futures and options. In light of the risks, you should undertake such transactions only if you understand the nature of the contracts (and contractual relationships) into which you are entering and the extent of your exposure to risk. Trading in futures and options is not suitable for many members of the public. You should carefully consider whether trading is appropriate for you in light of your experience, objectives, financial resources and other relevant circumstances.

Futures

1. Effect of "Leverage" or "Gearing"

Transactions in futures carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the futures contract so that transactions are 'leveraged' or 'geared'. A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit: this may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the firm to maintain your position. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the time prescribed, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit.

2. Risk-reducing orders or strategies

The placing of certain orders (e.g. 'stop-loss' orders, where permitted under local law, or 'stop-limit' orders) which are intended to limit losses to certain amounts may not be effective because market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. Strategies using combinations of positions, such as 'spread' and 'straddle' positions may be as risky as taking simple 'long' or 'short' positions.

Options

3. Variable degree of risk

Transactions in options carry a high degree of risk. Purchasers and sellers of options should familiarize themselves with the type of option (i.e. put or call) which they contemplate trading and the associated risks. You should calculate the extent to which the value of the options must increase for your position to become profitable, taking into account the premium and all transaction costs.

The purchaser of options may offset or exercise the options or allow the options to expire. The exercise of an option results either in a cash settlement or in the purchaser acquiring or delivering the underlying interest. If the option is on a future, the purchaser will acquire a futures position with associated liabilities for margin (see the section on Futures above). If the purchased options expire worthless, you will suffer a total loss of your investment which will consist of the option premium plus transaction costs. If you are contemplating purchasing deep-out-of-the-money options, you should be aware that the chance of such options becoming profitable ordinarily is remote.

Selling ('writing' or 'granting') an option generally entails considerably greater risk than purchasing options. Although the premium received by the seller is fixed, the seller may sustain a loss well in excess of that amount. The seller will be liable for additional margin to maintain the position if the market moves unfavorably. The seller will also be exposed to the risk of the purchaser exercising the option and the seller will be obligated to either settle the option in cash or to acquire or deliver the underlying interest. If the option is on a future, the seller will acquire a position in a future with associated liabilities for margin (see the section on Futures above). If the option is 'covered' by the seller holding a corresponding position in the underlying interest or a future or another option, the risk may be reduced. If the option is not covered, the risk of loss can be unlimited.

Certain exchanges in some jurisdictions permit deferred payment of the option premium, exposing the purchaser to liability for margin payments not exceeding the amount of the premium. The purchaser is still subject to the risk of losing the premium and transaction costs. When the option is exercised or expires, the purchaser is responsible for any unpaid premium outstanding at that time.

Additional risks common to futures and options

4. Terms and conditions of contracts

You should ask the firm with which you deal about the terms and conditions of the specific futures or options which you are trading and associated obligations (e.g. the circumstances under which you may become obligated to make or take delivery of the underlying interest of a futures contract and, in respect of options, expiration dates and restrictions on the time for exercise). Under certain circumstances the specifications of outstanding contracts (including the exercise price of an option) may be modified by the exchange or clearing house to reflect changes in the underlying interest.

5. Suspension or restriction of trading and pricing relationships

Market conditions (e.g. illiquidity) and/or the operation of the rules of certain markets (e.g. the suspension of trading in any contract or contract month because of price limits or "circuit breakers") may increase the risk of loss by making it difficult or impossible to effect transactions or liquidate/offset positions. If you have sold options, this may increase the risk of loss.

Further, normal pricing relationships between the underlying interest and the future, and the underlying interest and the option may not exist. This can occur when, for example, the futures contract underlying the option is subject to price limits while the option is not. The absence of an underlying reference price may make it difficult to judge "fair" value.

6. Deposited cash and property

You should familiarize yourself with the protections accorded money or other property you deposit for domestic and foreign transactions, particularly in the event of a firm insolvency or bankruptcy. The extent to which you may recover your money or property may be governed by specific legislation or local rules. In some jurisdictions, property which had been specifically identifiable as your own will be pro-rated in the same manner as cash for purposes or distribution in the event of a shortfall.

7. Commission and other charges

Before you begin to trade, you should obtain a clear explanation of all commission, fees and other charges for which you will be liable. These charges will affect your net profit (if any) or increase your loss.

8. Transactions in other jurisdictions

Transactions on markets in other jurisdictions, including markets formally linked to a domestic market, may expose you to additional risk. Such markets may be subject to regulation which may offer different or diminished investor protection. Before you trade you should enquire about any rules relevant to your particular transactions. Your local regulatory authority will be unable to compel the enforcement of the rules of regulatory authorities or markets in other jurisdictions where your transactions have been effected. You should ask the firm with which you deal for details about the types of redress available in both your home jurisdiction and other relevant jurisdictions before you start to trade.

9. Currency risks

The profit or loss in transactions in foreign currency-denominated contracts (whether they are traded in your own or another jurisdiction) will be affected by fluctuations in currency rates where there is a need to convert from the currency denomination of the contract to another currency.

10. Trading facilities

Most open-outcry and electronic trading facilities are supported by computer-based component systems for the order-routing, execution, matching, registration or clearing of trades. As with all facilities and systems, they are vulnerable to temporary disruption or failure. Your ability to recover certain losses may be subject to limits on liability imposed by the system provider, the market, the clearing house and/or member firms. Such limits may vary: you should ask the firm with which you deal for details in this respect.

11. Electronic trading

Trading on an electronic trading system may differ not only from trading in an open-outcry market but also from trading on other electronic trading systems. If you undertake transactions on an electronic trading system, you will be exposed to risks associated with the system including the failure of hardware and software. The result of any system failure may be that your order is either not executed according to your instructions or is not executed at all.

12. Off-exchange transactions

In some jurisdictions, and only then in restricted circumstances, firms are permitted to effect off-exchange transactions. The firm with which you deal may be acting as your counterparty to the transaction. It may be difficult or impossible to liquidate an existing position, to assess the value, to determine a fair price or to assess the exposure to risk. For these reasons, these transactions may involve increased risks. Off-exchange transactions may be less regulated or subject to a separate regulatory regime. Before you undertake such transactions, you should familiarize yourself with applicable rules and attendant risks.

I hereby acknowledge that I have received and understood this risk disclosure statement.

Agreements & Disclosures - Risk Disclosure - Floor/Pit Based Exchanges

To disclose all terms and conditions of being an IBLLC-US customer, please read the Customer Agreement below. Use the scrollbar to read the entire agreement and when done, signify your acceptance by typing your name exactly as shown at the bottom of the page, then clicking Continue.

Certain exchanges to which you may route orders through Interactive Brokers (“IB”) are non-electronic, open outcry market places. On such exchanges, orders submitted via the TWS will be routed to the floor electronically but are thereafter delivered into the trading pits manually and are subject to time disadvantages inherent with such markets. Trades execute when 2 brokers meet in the trading pit and verbally agree on a trade price and other trade details.

Traders acting on these exchanges must be aware of the following:

All order actions (new orders, modifications, cancellations) are subject to delays relating to the delivery process. The delays are usually 30-60 seconds but can last several/many minutes in busy conditions such as at the open or close of the trading session.

Frequent order modifications (price or quantity) will often result in poor executions since a modification requires that the pre-existing order be cancelled and a new order instated. If modifications are submitted faster than they can be processed, there is a strong likelihood of poor or missed executions.

There is no time or price priority for orders. It is possible that an order will not be executed even though trades are reported at, or better than, the expected price.

Market orders may be executed at unfavorable prices. Use of market orders is permitted, but not recommended.

Cancelled orders may be executed. It is not uncommon that the report of an executed order is delayed due to market volume. When the cancel request is sent, the pit broker is then forced to report the status which may be “filled, too late to cancel”.

IB recognizes the limitations of open outcry trading as compared to electronic trading and has designed the TWS system to remove as many of the problems as possible. Nevertheless, traders should not expect a similar performance from the IB brokerage system for floor-traded markets as for electronic markets.

I acknowledge the limitations of floor-traded markets and agree that IB will not be liable for delays and errors outside of its control relating to the manual open outcry trading process.

Hong Kong Risk Disclosure

HONG KONG RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENTS

A. RISK OF SECURITIES TRADING

• The prices of securities fluctuate, sometimes dramatically. The price of a security may move up or down, and may become valueless. It is as likely that losses will be incurred rather than profit made as a result of buying and selling securities.

B. RISK OF TRADING FUTURES AND OPTIONS

• The risk of loss in trading futures contracts or options is substantial. In some circumstances, you may sustain losses in excess of your initial margin funds. Placing contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders, will not necessarily avoid loss. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account. You should therefore study and understand futures contracts and options before you trade and carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in the light of your own financial position and investment objectives. If you trade options you should inform yourself of exercise and expiration procedures and your rights and obligations upon exercise or expiry.

C. RISK OF TRADING IN LEVERAGED FOREIGN EXCHANGE CONTRACTS

• The risk of loss in leveraged foreign exchange trading can be substantial. You may sustain losses in excess of your initial margin funds. Placing contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders, will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.

D. RISK OF TRADING IN GROWTH ENTERPRISE MARKET STOCKS

• Growth Enterprise Market (GEM) stocks involve a high investment risk. In particular, companies may list on GEM with neither a track record of profitability nor any obligation to forecast future profitability. GEM stocks may be very volatile and illiquid.

• You should make the decision to invest only after due and careful consideration. The greater risk profile and other characteristics of GEM mean that it is a market more suited to professional and other sophisticated investors.

• Current information on GEM stocks may only be found on the internet website operated by The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited. GEM Companies are usually not required to issue paid announcements in gazetted newspapers.

• You should seek independent professional advice if you are uncertain of or have not understood any aspect of this risk disclosure statement or the nature and risks involved in trading of GEM stocks.

E. RISK OF CLIENT ASSETS RECEIVED OR HELD OUTSIDE HONG KONG

• Client assets received or held by the licensed or registered person outside Hong Kong are subject to the applicable laws and regulations of the relevant overseas jurisdiction which may be different from the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Cap.571) and the rules made thereunder. Consequently, such client assets may not enjoy the same protection as that conferred on client assets received or held in Hong Kong.

F. RISK OF PROVIDING AN AUTHORITY TO REPLEDGE YOUR SECURITIES COLLATERAL ETC.

• There is risk if you provide the licensed or registered person with an authority that allows it to apply your securities or securities collateral pursuant to a securities borrowing and lending agreement, repledge your securities collateral for financial accommodation or deposit your securities collateral as collateral for the discharge and satisfaction of its settlement obligations and liabilities.

• If your securities or securities collateral are received or held by the licensed or registered person in Hong Kong, the above arrangement is allowed only if you consent in writing. Moreover, unless you are a professional investor, your authority must specify the period for which it is current and be limited to not more than 12 months. If you are a professional investor, these restrictions do not apply.

• Additionally, your authority may be deemed to be renewed (i.e. without your written consent) if the licensed or registered person issues you a reminder at least 14 days prior to the expiry of the authority, and you do not object to such deemed renewal before the expiry date of your then existing authority.

• You are not required by any law to sign these authorities. But an authority may be required by licensed or registered persons, for example, to facilitate margin lending to you or to allow your securities or securities collateral to be lent to or deposited as collateral with third parties. The licensed or registered person should explain to you the purposes for which one of these authorities is to be used.

• If you sign one of these authorities and your securities or securities collateral are lent to or deposited with third parties, those third parties will have a lien or charge on your securities or securities collateral. Although the licensed or registered person is responsible to you for securities or securities collateral lent or deposited under your authority, a default by it could result in the loss of your securities or securities collateral.

• A cash account not involving securities borrowing and lending is available from most licensed or registered persons. If you do not require margin facilities or do not wish your securities or securities collateral to be lent or pledged, do not sign the above authorities and ask to open this type of cash account.

G. RISK OF MARGIN TRADING

• The risk of loss in financing a transaction by deposit of collateral is significant. You may sustain losses in excess of your cash and any other assets deposited as collateral with the licensed or registered person. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders. You may be called upon at short notice to make additional margin deposits or interest payments. If the required margin deposits or interest payments are not made within the prescribed time, your collateral may be liquidated without your consent. Moreover, you will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account and interest charged on your account. You should therefore carefully consider whether such a financing arrangement is suitable in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.

H. ADDITIONAL RISK DISCLOSURE FOR FUTURES AND OPTIONS TRADING

• This brief statement does not disclose all of the risks and other significant aspects of trading in futures and options. In light of the risks, you should undertake such transactions only if you understand the nature of the contracts (and contractual relationships) into which you are entering and the extent of your exposure to risk. Trading in futures and options is not suitable for many members of the public. You should carefully consider whether trading is appropriate for you in light of your experience, objectives, financial resources and other relevant circumstances.

Futures

1. Effect of 'Leverage' or 'Gearing'

Transactions in futures carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the futures contract so that transactions are 'leveraged' or 'geared'. A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit: this may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the firm with which you deal to maintain your position. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the time prescribed, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit.

2. Risk-reducing orders or strategies

The placing of certain orders (e.g. "stop-loss" orders, or "stop-limit" orders), which are intended to limit losses to certain amounts, may not be effective because market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. Strategies using combinations of positions, such as 'spread' and 'straddle' positions may be as risky as taking simple 'long' or 'short' positions.

Options

3. Variable degrees of risk

Transactions in options carry a high degree of risk. Purchasers and sellers of options should familiarize themselves with the type of option (i.e. put or call) which they contemplate trading and the associated risks. You should calculate the extent to which the value of the options must increase for your position to become profitable, taking into account the premium and all transaction costs.

The purchaser of options may offset or exercise the options or allow the options to expire. The exercise of an option results either in a cash settlement or in the purchaser acquiring or delivering the underlying interest. If the option is on a futures contract, the purchaser will acquire a futures position with associated liabilities for margin (see the section on Futures above). If the purchased options expire worthless, you will suffer a total loss of your investment which will consist of the option premium plus transaction costs. If you are contemplating purchasing deep-out-of-the-money options, you should be aware that the chance of such options becoming profitable ordinarily is remote.

Selling ('writing' or 'granting') options generally entails considerably greater risk than purchasing options. Although the premium received by the seller is fixed, the seller may sustain a loss well in excess of that amount. The seller will be liable for additional margin to maintain the position if the market moves unfavorably against him. The seller will also be exposed to the risk of the purchaser exercising the option and the seller will be obligated to either settle the options in cash or to acquire or deliver the underlying interest. If the option is on a futures contract, the seller will acquire a position in a futures contract with associated liabilities for margin (see the section on Futures above). If the option is 'covered' by the seller holding a corresponding position in the underlying interest or a futures contract or another option, the risk may be reduced. If the option is not covered, the risk of loss can be unlimited.

Certain exchanges in some jurisdictions permit deferred payment of the option premium, exposing the purchaser to liability for margin payments not exceeding the amount of the premium. The purchaser is still subject to the risk of losing the premium and transaction costs. When the option is exercised or expires, the purchaser is responsible for any unpaid premium outstanding at that time.

Additional Risks Common to Futures and Options

4. Terms and conditions of contracts

You should ask the firm with which you deal about the terms and conditions of the specific futures or options which you are trading and associated obligations (e.g. the circumstances under which you may become obliged to make or take delivery of the underlying interest of a futures contract and, in respect of options, expiration dates and restrictions on the time for exercise). Under certain circumstances the specifications of outstanding contracts (including the exercise price of an option) may be modified by the exchange or clearing house to reflect changes in the underlying interest.

5. Suspension or restriction of trading and pricing relationships

Market conditions (e.g. illiquidity) and/or the operation of the rules of certain markets (e.g. the suspension of trading in any contract or contract month because of price limits or 'circuit breakers') may increase the risk of loss by making it difficult or impossible to effect transactions or liquidate/offset positions. If you have sold options, this may increase the risk of loss.

Further, normal pricing relationships between the underlying interest and the future, and the underlying interest and the option may not exist. This can occur when, for example, the futures contract underlying the option is subject to price limits while the option is not. The absence of an underlying reference price may make it difficult to judge "fair" value.

6. Deposited cash and property

You should familiarize yourself with the protections given to money or other property you deposit for domestic and foreign transactions, particularly in the event of a firm insolvency or bankruptcy. The extent to which you may recover your money or property may be governed by specific legislation or local rules. In some jurisdictions, property which had been specifically identifiable as your own will be pro-rated in the same manner as cash for purposes of distribution in the event of a shortfall.

7. Commission and other charges

Before you begin to trade, you should obtain a clear explanation of all commission, fees and other charges for which you will be liable. These charges will affect your net profit (if any) or increase your loss.

8. Transactions in other jurisdictions

Transactions on markets in other jurisdictions, including markets formally linked to a domestic market, may expose you to additional risk. Such markets may be subject to regulation which may offer different or diminished investor protection. Before you trade, you should enquire about any rules relevant to your particular transactions. Your local regulatory authority will be unable to compel the enforcement of the rules of regulatory authorities or markets in other jurisdictions where your transactions have been effected. You should ask the firm with which you deal for details about the types of redress available in both your home jurisdiction and other relevant jurisdictions before you start to trade.

9. Currency risks

The profit or loss in transactions in foreign currency-denominated contracts (whether they are traded in your own or another jurisdiction) will be affected by fluctuations in currency rates where there is a need to convert from the currency denomination of the contract to another currency.

10. Trading facilities

Electronic trading facilities are supported by computer-based component systems for the order-routing, execution, matching, registration or clearing of trades. As with all facilities and systems, they are vulnerable to temporary disruption or failure. Your ability to recover certain losses may be subject to limits on liability imposed by the system provider, the market, the clearing house and/or participant firms. Such limits may vary: you should ask the firm with which you deal for details in this respect.

11. Electronic trading

Trading on an electronic trading system may differ not only from trading in an open-outcry market but also from trading on other electronic trading systems. If you undertake transactions on an electronic trading system, you will be exposed to risks associated with the system including the failure of hardware and software. The result of any system failure may be that your order is either not executed according to your instructions or is not executed at all.

12. Off-exchange transactions

In some jurisdictions, and only then in restricted circumstances, firms are permitted to effect off-exchange transactions. The firm with which you deal may be acting as your counterparty to the transaction. It may be difficult or impossible to liquidate an existing position, to assess the value, to determine a fair price or to assess the exposure to risk. For these reasons, these transactions may involve increased risks. Off-exchange transactions may be less regulated or subject to a separate regulatory regime. Before you undertake such transactions, you should familiarize yourself with applicable rules and attendant risks.

I. DISCLOSURE REGARDING HONG KONG OPTIONS

• Hong Kong options are treated as normal premium options in that IB will not post changes in variation margin (profits or losses) for such options. The profit or loss will be determined at the time a position is closed and will be the difference between the opening and closing transaction prices. You should note that the end profit or loss calculation result remains identical. It is important to note that positions resulting from strategies with combined futures and options legs may require additional collateral to maintain. This is because commodity accounts must maintain a positive cash balance and adverse market movements may cause the futures portion of the strategy to generate negative cash which will not be offset by options price changes.

Regulatory Info and Additional Provisions for Users from Hong Kong

REGULATORY INFORMATION AND ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS FOR USERS FROM HONG KONG & USERS TRADING ON HONG KONG EXCHANGES

Your agreement is with Interactive Brokers' United States office ("IB"). IB wants to make sure that you are aware that:

• IB is not a member of the HKFE.

• IB is not a member of the SEHK.

• Factual information, including market quotations and other data, is provided as a discretionary courtesy; and IB does not warrant in any fashion, and is not responsible for, the accuracy or timeliness of such information.

• Electronic or computer-based facilities and systems such as those used by IB are vulnerable to disruption or failure. Your ability to make claims or recover losses may be subject to limits on liability imposed by the IB Customer Agreement. (See paragraph 28 of the IB Customer Agreement).

2. The rules and regulations of the HKEx, HKFE or SEHK as applicable, and the HKFE Clearing House, CCASS/HKSCC or SEOCH, as applicable, shall be binding on the Customer and IB. Those rules and regulations contain provisions which require IB, in certain circumstances, to disclose the name and beneficial identity or such other information concerning Customer as the exchange or Commission may request. Customer agrees to provide such information to IB in compliance with the Ordinance, exchange Rules, Regulations and Procedures or as the exchange or Commission may require. Customer acknowledges that if such information is not provided, the Chief Executive of the exchange may require the closing out of Customer’s positions or the imposition of a margin surcharge on Customer's positions.

3. IB, its affiliates, including THSHK, and their respective directors and/or employees may trade on their own account and, subject to the provisions of the Ordinance, IB and its affiliates may take the opposite position to the Customer's order in relation to any futures/options contract, whether on IB's or its affiliate's own account or for the account of other customers of IB, provided that such trade is executed competitively on or through the facilities of HKFE in accordance with its rules or the facilities of any other commodity, futures or options exchange in accordance with the rules and regulations of the exchanges and clearinghouses governing the relevant markets.

4. Unless otherwise confirmed in writing by IB and agreed to by the Customer and IB, IB is acting solely as broker to any transactions made with IB by the Customer.

5. In all transactions referred to in the Agreement, IB or its affiliates are authorized to engage in proprietary trading and may contract as principal.

6. The Customer submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of Hong Kong in respect of all disputes, differences and claims relating to or arising out of the Agreement.

7. The Customer is bound by rule 631 of the HKFE which permits the HKFE or Chief Executive of the HKFE to take steps to limit positions or require the closing out of contracts of the Customer who in the opinion of the HKFE or the Chief Executive are accumulating positions which are or may be detrimental to any particular Market or Markets, or which are or may be capable of adversely affecting the fair and orderly operation of any Market or Markets as the case may be. In addition, IB may be required to report information regarding large open positions held by its Customers in accordance with relevant regulations. More information on these requirements can be found in HKFE rules 628 – 633 and the Securities and Futures (Contracts Limits and Reportable Positions) Rules and related guidance notes issued by the Commission.

8. All monies or other properties received by IB from the Customer or from any other person, including the HKFE Clearing House for the account of the Customer in respect of the futures/options contracts transacted on behalf of the Customer, shall be held by IB as trustee, segregated from IB's own assets and paid into a segregated bank account. All monies or other property so held by IB shall not form part of the assets of IB for insolvency or winding up purposes but shall be promptly returned to Customer upon the appointment of a provisional liquidator, liquidator or similar officer over all or any part of IB's business or assets.

9. The Customer hereby authorizes IB to apply any monies, approved debt securities or approved securities which the Customer may pay to IB in order to: (i) meet obligations to the HKFE Clearing House (provided that no withdrawal from the Customer's accounts with IB may be made which would have the effect that the relevant margin requirements or trading liabilities conducted on behalf of any Customer are thereby financed by any other Customer); (ii) pay commission, brokerage, levies and other proper charges for contracts transacted by IB on behalf of the Customer; and/or (iii) make payments in accordance with the Customer's directions (provided that no money may be paid into another account of the Customer unless that account is also a segregated bank account). The Customer acknowledges that IB may apply such monies, approved debt securities or approved securities in or towards meeting IB's obligations to any party insofar as such obligations arise in connection with or incidental to all futures/options contracts transacted on the Customer's behalf. The Customer agrees that IB may retain interest on the Customer's money.

10. In respect of any account of IB, its affiliates, including THSHK, or any other broker acting on their behalf, maintained with the HKFE Clearing House, whether or not such account is maintained wholly or partly in respect of the futures/options contracts transacted on behalf of the Customer and whether or not monies or approved securities paid or deposited by the Customer has been paid to the HKFE Clearing House, as between such entities and the HKFE Clearing House, such entities deal as principal and accordingly no such account is impressed with any trust or other equitable interest in favor of the Customer and the monies and/or approved securities paid to or deposited with the HKFE Clearing House are thereby freed from the trust referred to in paragraph 8, above.

11. In the event that the Customer directs IB to enter into any contract on an exchange or other market on which such transactions are effected in a foreign currency: (i) any profit or loss arising as a result of a fluctuation in the exchange rate affecting such currency will be entirely for the account and risk of the Customer; (ii) all initial and subsequent deposits for margin purposes shall be made in such currency in such amounts as IB may, at its sole discretion, require; and (iii) when such a contract is liquidated IB shall debit or credit the account of the Customer in the currency in which such account is denominated at a rate of exchange (where the relevant contract is denominated in a currency other than that of the account) determined by IB at its sole discretion on the basis of the then prevailing money market rates of exchange.

12. The Customer acknowledges that the HKFE Clearing House may do all things necessary to transfer any open positions held by IB on the Customer's behalf and money and securities standing to the credit of the Customer's account with IB to another member of the HKFE if necessary.

12. LEVIES & COMMISSIONS

• Every contract executed on the floor of the HKFE shall be subject to the charge of an applicable Investor Compensation Fund levy and a levy pursuant to the Ordinance, the cost of both of which shall be borne by the Customer.

• In respect of contracts executed in markets other than those organized by the HKFE, any charges levied on such contracts by the relevant markets shall be borne by the Customer.

• The Customer will pay commission and other charges at rates to be determined by IB and at charges pursuant to Hong Kong law or the rules of the HKFE or other exchanges governing the relevant markets.

13. RULES & LAWS

• All transactions shall be subject to the constitution, rules, regulations, customs, usages, rulings and interpretations, from time to time extant or in force of the HKEx, HKFE or SEHK or other markets as applicable (and of their respective clearing house, if any), where the transactions are executed by IB or IB agents. All transactions under this agreement shall also be subject to any law, rule, or regulation then applicable thereto, including but not by way of limitation, the provisions of the Ordinance, as amended from time to time, and the rules and regulations thereunder.

• All transactions entered between IB and the Customer relating to any money, foreign currency, currency option, currency future, or currency forward contract or foreign exchange contract shall be governed by and subject to all the rules, regulations, orders and laws of the country of the currency or money concerned and those of Hong Kong and/or the by-laws, rules and regulations of the exchange concerned in which the transaction is done.

• All transactions related to futures/options contracts executed in markets other than those organized by the HKFE will be subject to the rules and regulations of those markets and not those of the HKFE, with the result that the Customer may have a markedly different level and type of protection in relation to those transactions as compared to the level and type of protection afforded by the rules of the HKFE.

• No provisions of this Agreement will operate to remove, exclude, or restrict any of your rights or any obligations of IB under Hong Kong law.

14. EXPLANATION OF MARGIN PROCEDURES AND UNILATERAL CLOSING OUT OF CLIENTS' POSITIONS

Margin Procedures

We set out below an explanation of margin procedures and the circumstances under which Customer positions may be unilaterally closed.

• Paragraph 11 of the IB Customer Agreement sets out detailed provisions regarding Margin Requirements.

• IB follows all margin rules laid down by all exchanges on which products are traded on margin.

• Any changes in margin requirements (whether imposed by the exchange or by IB) will be communicated to customers.

• Customers must remember that, in the event of a default, IB may close out the customers' open positions without prior notice to or consent from the customers as provided for by the terms of the Agreement. IB has reserved in the Agreement the right to close out any open positions(s) without notice: (i) when the margins on deposit with IB are exhausted, inadequate in the opinion of IB to protect it against possible price fluctuations or any adverse conditions; or (ii) any other appropriate circumstances. Please Note: IB is required to notify the HKFE (and may be required to report to the HKFE and the Commission particulars of all open positions) if Customer fails to meet two or more successive margin calls or demands for variation adjustments if the total amount in default exceeds HK $150,000.

• No conduct or omission on behalf of IB, nor any agreement purportedly entered into on IB's behalf (save an agreement in accordance with the terms of the Agreement), shall constitute any form of waiver or variation or relaxation of IB's rights to close out customers' positions unilaterally.

• Any steps taken by IB to close out customers' positions unilaterally will be entirely without prejudice to IB's other rights under the Agreement and otherwise, in particular the right to payments from customers of all amounts outstanding.

15. STATEMENT OF PARTICULARS OF APPROVED CONTRACTS

IB and THSHK are licensed to trade in the products approved by the HKEx, HKFE or SEHK, as applicable, from time to time. Contract specifications for the products in question are available on request.

16. If Customer suffers pecuniary loss by reason of IB’s default, the liability of the Investor Compensation Fund will be restricted to valid claims as provided for in the Ordinance and the relevant subsidiary legislation and will be subject to the monetary limits specified in the Securities and Futures (Investor Compensation – Compensation Limits) Rules and accordingly there can be no assurance that any pecuniary loss sustained by reason of such a default will necessarily be recouped from the Investor Compensation Fund in full, in part or at all.

17. We disclose the following to you: Company Name: Interactive Brokers LLC. Licensed for Dealing in Securities, Dealing in Futures Contracts and Leveraged Foreign Exchange Trading. Central Entity Number (CE Number): AEX264. Staff responsible for your account: The IB Customer Service Desk. Name of IB Responsible Officer / Registered Representative: David E. Friedland CE No.: ACP478.

18. RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT FOR EQUITY SECURITIES

• Customer acknowledges that the price of securities can and does fluctuate, and that any individual security may experience downward movements, and under some circumstances even become valueless. Customer appreciates therefore that there is an inherent risk that losses may be incurred rather than profit made, as a result of buying and selling securities. This is a risk that the Customer is prepared to accept.

• Customer also acknowledges that there are risks in leaving securities in the custody of the Broker or in authorizing the Broker to deposit securities as collateral for loans or advances made to the Broker or authorizing the Broker to borrow or loan securities.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS BY CUSTOMER

I acknowledge that:

• I have read carefully the IB Customer Agreement, the Hong Kong Risk Disclosure Statements and the Regulatory Information and Additional Provisions for Users from Hong Kong and Users Trading on Hong Kong Exchanges;

• The contents of the IB Customer Agreement, the Hong Kong Risk Disclosure Statements and the Additional Provisions for Users from Hong Kong and Users Trading on Hong Kong Exchanges have been fully explained to me by the materials provided by IB in a language which I understand. I have agreed to the Agreement being in English.

• I have been given an adequate opportunity to ask questions of IB's representatives and to consult my own legal advisers about the IB Customer Agreement, the Hong Kong Risk Disclosure Statements and the Regulatory Information and Additional Provisions for Users from Hong Kong and Users Trading on Hong Kong Exchanges.

• I have received the IB Customer Agreement, the Hong Kong Risk Disclosure Statements and the Regulatory Information and Additional Provisions for Users from Hong Kong and Users Trading on Hong Kong Exchanges. I am trading on my own account.

• I have read and completed the Account Application and Supplemental Questions for Hong Kong Users previously provided to me by IB and confirm that the information I have provided is true and complete.

• I agree to electronically sign additional documents included during the account opening process and from time to time, including, but not limited to risk disclosures and other agreements.

IF YOU ARE FROM HONG KONG YOU ARE REQUIRED TO MANUALLY SIGN THIS FORM AND SEND IT TO IB TO EVIDENCE THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT, READ IT, UNDERSTAND IT AND AGREE TO ITS TERMS. IF YOU ARE NOT FROM HONG KONG YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO SEND THIS FORM TO IB. RATHER, YOU ARE ONLY REQUIRED TO SIGN IT ELECTRONICALLY TO EVIDENCE THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT, READ IT, UNDERSTAND IT AND AGREE TO ITS TERMS.

ASX Agreement & Disclosures

INTERACTIVE BROKERS LLC SUPPLEMENTAL AGREEMENT & DISCLOSURES FOR TRADING ON THE AUSTRALIAN STOCK EXCHANGE LIMITED

Effect of the Supplemental Agreement & Disclosures

This Supplemental Agreement & Disclosures for Trading on the Australian Stock Exchange Limited (“ASX”) (“the Agreement”) is in addition to the Interactive Brokers (ARBN 091191141; AFSL 245574) (“IB”) Customer Agreement and forms part of the contract between IB and Customer (hereinafter, “Customer” or “Client”) regarding transactions on ASX.

Market Transactions on ASX are entered into subject to the Rules, directions, decisions and requirements of ASX, and the Australian Clearing House Pty Limited (“ACH”) Clearing Rules, and, where relevant, the ASX Settlement and Transfer Corporation Pty Limited (“ASTC”) Settlement Rules; the customs and usages of the Market; and the correction of errors and omissions. Confirmations regarding Customer’s transactions are issued subject to these terms.

ASX Authority Regarding Market Transactions

Customer understands and agrees that ASX has the power under the Rules to cancel or amend Market Transactions or Crossings.

Disclosures Regarding the Execution and Clearing of ASX Transactions

Pursuant to ASX Market Rule 7.1.1, IB provides you with the following information:

IB is not a participant on the ASX. IB’s proprietary trading affiliate, Timber Hill Australia Pty Limited (ABN 25079993534) (“THA”) is a participant on the ASX. IB shall route customers’ ASX orders through THA’s connection to the ASX dedicated to the routing of only IB customer orders.

The business address and phone number for THA is:

Level 25

56 Pitt Street

Sydney

NSW, 2000, Australia

61 2 9240 5145

Orders executed for IB clients shall be cleared by Fortis Clearing Sydney Pty Ltd (“Fortis”), an ACH Clearing Participant. With respect to clients’ orders executed on ASX and cleared by Fortis, Fortis carries the Clearing Obligations and any settlement obligations for all Market Transactions of THA and IB (including those of Customer). As the Clearing Participant, Fortis must settle such transactions as principal with ACH or the relevant counter-party, even though the Market Transaction may have been entered into on Customer’s behalf. The Clearing Obligations and any settlement obligations of Customer are therefore owed directly to Fortis, as the Clearing Participant.

If Customer fails to pay the amounts due in respect of a Market Transaction; or if Customer fails to fulfill its settlement obligations in respect of a Market Transaction, Fortis has direct rights against Customer, including the rights of sale under the Market Rules. As such, an agreement is deemed to have been entered into between Fortis and Customer upon the terms included herein. Such deemed agreement comes into existence immediately upon the receipt by IB of an order by Customer to enter into a Cash Market Transaction.

The business address and phone number for Fortis are below:

Level 8

50 Bridge Street

2. a trust deed (if the Client is a trustee); or

3. an agency contract.

2. Nature of IB’s Obligations

Notwithstanding that IB may act in accordance with the instructions of, or for the benefit of, the Client, the Client acknowledges that any contract arising from any order submitted to the Market, is entered into by IB as principal.

1. Dealing as principal

The Client acknowledges that IB or its affiliates, including Timber Hill Australia Pty Limited (ABN 25079993534) (“THA”), may, in certain circumstances permitted under the Corporations Act and the Market Rules, take the opposite position in a transaction in the ASX Derivative Market Contracts, either acting for another client or on its own account.

If ASX prescribes amended minimum terms for a Client Agreement for the ASX Derivative Market Contracts for the purposes of the Rules (the “New Terms”), to the extent of any inconsistency between these minimum terms and the New Terms, the New Terms will override the terms of this Agreement and apply as if the Client and IB had entered into an agreement containing the New Terms.

1. Market Participant to provide Client with copy of changes

IB will provide a copy of the New Terms to the Client as soon as practicable after ASX prescribes the New Terms.

1. Application of Clearing Rules

The Client acknowledges that each Option registered with an Approved Clearing Facility is subject to operating rules and the practices, directions, decisions and requirements of that Approved Clearing Facility.
