If BT Option deems that it is difficult to provide rates or hedge transactions due to technical reasons, such as a decrease in the liquidity of the interbank market, or a sudden change of exchange rate, we may discontinue the purchase or sale. In that case, the option that customers held will be settled at expiration time based on the expiration rate.
In the case of excessive burden on trading system, we may temporarily suspend your transaction at our discretion.
The communication time between customer’s devices and our server, and the contract processing time after purchase accepted, price difference (ie slippage) may occur between the screen display price at the time of the customer’s order and the actual contract price. “Slippage” can be advantageous to the customer or may be disadvantageous.
When slippage occurs, confirmation of purchase will be shown on trading screen.
