Are there any restrictions when trading Share CFDs?

Due to restrictions implemented by regulatory bodies, underlying stock exchanges, or liquidity providers that FXCM works with, some shares may be restricted to be "sold short."

Any short sale restriction does not impede someone from closing any open position; it only prevents the opening of new short sale positions. FXCM may not proactively contact clients on which positions may have short sale restrictions.

The MetaTrader (MT4) platform may provide an error message, "Trade is Disabled" and the FXCM Trading Station may state, "You Cannot Trade at This Price" but these error messages should not be construed as official communication of a short selling restriction.
