7.5. You may place the following types of orders:
7.5.1. “Market Order” – this Order is executed immediately at the current market price.

7.5.2. “Associated Order” – this Order will be executed if the market price reaches the price specified in the Order. This Order is associated with an open position. If the open position is closed, then the Associated Order will be automatically cancelled. During Market Hours the Associated Order will be executed at the specified price. The Associated Order may be executed at a different price when the market opens. There are 3 types of Associated Orders:
(1) “Stop Loss Order” – it is used to close an open position at a certain loss. The Trading Platform may show you the target loss in the currency of your Account. This information is indicative and not guaranteed.
(2) “Take Profit Order” – it is used to close an open position at a certain profit. The Trading Platform may show You the target profit in the currency of your Account. This information is indicative and not guaranteed.
(3) “Trailing Stop Order” – it is a Stop Loss Order where the specified price follows the market price at a certain distance.
7.5.3. “Entry Order” – this Order will be executed if the market price reaches the price specified in the Order. The Entry Order is used to open a new position or to modify an existing open position. The execution price of the Entry Order is not guaranteed. This Order may be executed at a different price, especially when the market is volatile or not liquid. There are three types of Entry Orders:
(1) “Limit/Stop” – this is either a “Limit” order or a “Stop” order. The Trading Platform will automatically set the type of the Order according to the current market price and the specified price.
(2) “OCO” or “One cancels the other” – it is a combination of two Entry Orders where the execution of one of them automatically cancels the other.
(3) “If/Then” – it is a combination of one Entry Order, called “If Order”, and one or two Associated Orders, called “Then Orders”. The execution of the “If Order” activates the “Then Orders”. In case there is a price gap and the execution price of the “If Order” will be outside the price boundaries of the “Then Orders”, then the “If/Then” order will be cancelled by the Trading Platform.

13. RISK WARNINGS
13.1. Before trading in CFDs, You must ensure that you fully understand the risks involved. CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. We are required by law to notify retail clients about the percentage of Retail Clients who have lost money trading CFDs with us during the last 12 months. This disclosure will be made available on our website: www.trading212.com. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. By entering into this Agreement, You agree that We may provide You with a description of some of the risks involved in trading CFDs on our Website and in the Risk Disclosure Notice.
13.2. Trading in CFDs may not be suitable for all investors due to its high risk and complex nature. You may lose all or most of your initial payment and may be required to make additional payments. You shall be responsible for your own trading decisions. If you are in any doubt you should seek independent advice.
13.3 Trading in CFDs relies on the price movement (appreciation and depreciation) of underlying instruments. You are therefore exposed to similar, but magnified risks to holding the underlying instruments. The value of the underlying instruments may go up and down. Due to the use of leverage, CFD trading carries more risk than ordinary share dealing and may not be suitable for everyone.
13.4 The trading You conduct on our Trading Platform is not conducted on an exchange or a market and are not cleared on a central clearinghouse. The CFD transactions are contracts with Us as your counterparty.
