FDT – Rules
Rules for each game, your obligation to register, and the placing and viewing of your trades are as set out on the Site and/or the App. Similarly, you will find on the Site and/or the App the terms from time to time relating to leaderboards and the prizes to be awarded. In addition to any rules and terms set out therein, the following shall apply: Potential winners may be announced by us on the Site, the App, or elsewhere in the pursuit of our marketing of FDT.
A winner will be the person who, in our reasonable but absolute discretion, generates the highest absolute gain in the value of their account at the end of the period of the game in question. In calculating net proceeds, we will look at the profit of your trades as at the close of the game.
FDT – Trading
The App will make available all shares, currencies, commodities, indexes and other financial instruments that are eligible for trading, as each is provided either in real-time or delayed time. Limit orders, Market orders and Stop orders are permitted as is short selling. We reserve the right to suspend trading in certain instruments where we reasonably consider (in our absolute discretion) there to be unusual trading situations, computer system errors or situations beyond our control.
All trades shall be priced and executed in US$, irrespective of whether they are actually priced in another currency, based upon the exchange rate provided by JAK on the day of the game.
A maximum trade limit may be applied in any single instrument in certain games. If you submit a trade and your FDT account does not have enough available virtual cash or exceeds the maximum limit, your order will be rejected. You will only be able to make further trades in that instrument by reducing your position first.
If you submit a trade that we reasonably deem (in our absolute discretion) inappropriate or in any way not in compliance with these terms and conditions, such trade will not be processed.
At the end of the game period all open positions will be closed at the Settlement price or currently available market price.
How to execute a trade:
Trades are entered in the App by clicking on the Submit button in the Buy or Sell Order ticket after entering a price or size of transaction volume.
Margins are applied to trades on currencies, commodities, indexes and may be applied to other financial instruments. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to know more about the margins applied.
For simplicity, brokerage fees are not incurred as part of FDT.
FDT – Pricing of Trades
Trades are priced and executed on real-time or delayed prices (which may include end-of-day prices) as reported in the App and based on pricing information provided to us by the relevant exchange or bank/broker via SIX Financial Information UK Ltd, an independent data provider. The price you receive for a particular trade may be higher or lower than the price indicated on the App at the time you enter the trade, for various reasons including whether the feed is delayed. For purposes of FDT, the price of each trade is the price determined by SIX Financial Information UK Ltd data feeds. The official time for all trades will be determined in accordance with the exchanges’ clock. Trades executed on delayed prices are filled/completed “x” minutes after execution, “x” being the delay on the feed.
Pricing is updated continuously. However the frequency can be set to manually refresh from within the App. Neither us, SIX Financial Information UK Ltd or the various exchanges or banks/brokers that provide prices are responsible for the accuracy of such data. There is no guarantee that the price at which you buy or sell a trade will match any other price that may be found outside of FDT. All prices are final. You are not permitted to dispute any price at which the trade is executed even if such price resulted from an error in pricing information received from SIX Financial Information UK Ltd.
At the end of a game period, the Settlement price or currently available market price will be used to close out positions. If no price is available from the relevant exchange, bank/broker or SIX Financial Information UK Ltd to use to close a position, the position will be closed using the original price when the position was opened, i.e. there will be no gain or loss.
FDT – Prizes
The potential to win a prize is based upon our calculation of the highest absolute gain in the value of each player’s account during the respective game in question. In the event of a tie, we reserve the right, in our absolute determination, to award a prize equally between winners.
Your ability to win a prize is subject to your continued compliance with these terms and conditions, and any other set out on the Site and/or the App from time to time.
After the conclusion of each FDT game, the winner may be notified in person or by phone, e-mail and/or mail or announced on this Site. If you, as a potential winner, cannot be reached by us after two (2) attempts over a seven (7) day period after the end of the game, we reserve the right to declare you ineligible to win that prize.
You are responsible for any and all taxes and liabilities payable as a result of your winning a prize, and you hereby indemnify us and agree to keep us indemnified against any and all costs, claims, demands, payments, expenses and liabilities in respect thereof.
Prizes are not transferable. We will not agree to issue any cash equivalent for a prize, if that prize is not already a cash prize.
Your Registration Details
By entering your details in the registration process, you are agreeing that we may disclose (where permitted by law) those details on the Site and/or the App, at our discretion, including whether or not you win a prize.
During registration you will be asked to select a unique password and nickname. Note that your username will be the e-mail address with which you have registered. You must choose an appropriate nickname, as reasonably determined by us in our absolute discretion. This includes, without limitation, names that are or may reasonably be determined to be capable of being, defamatory, racist, obscene, or sexually explicit, whether in English or any other language. Neither may you violate any applicable laws, rules or regulations in so choosing a nickname, whether in respect of a third party’s intellectual property rights or otherwise.
Your password or nickname cannot be changed without our consent.

Not investment advice:
Your access to or use of this Site and/or App, or any part or aspect of FDT, or any content therein, does not, and is not intended to, constitute any form of advice, representation, or recommendation by us. You cannot rely on anything expressly or impliedly provided as part of the content of the Site and/or App or any aspect of FDT, or which may be available to you through your access on or use of the Site and/or App or FDT, when making or not making investment or other financial decisions. If you decide to make or not make any such decision you should always take or consider taking independent financial advice.
Your own investigations:
Even when operating the Site and/or App and playing FDT in accordance with these terms and conditions, you hereby acknowledge and accept that you (and not us) bear responsibility for your own investigations, considerations, and research – whether or not these lead to investment decisions.
You must not engage in trading activity save that which fully complies with all applicable laws and regulations (including without limitation, those relating to insider dealing). We cannot be held liable by you or any others for any decision made or action taken by you or others based upon reliance on or use of information or materials obtained or accessed through use of the Site and/or App or the playing of FDT.
We reserve the right at all times to disqualify you if we reasonably suspect that you are acting or have acted irresponsibly or inappropriately, or otherwise in violation of these terms and conditions, in playing FDT. You agree not to trade by use of an automated system or any other similar methods. We reserve the right to terminate your FDT participation (including even after you have been determined as a winner, in which case no prize shall be awarded or any so awarded may be recalled) if we reasonably suspect you of cheating or attempted cheating. All such action will be determined by JAK in its sole discretion.
We know that FDT is simulated and not “real” trading – however you should always bear the following in mind in any event - be aware that the value of investments, trading decisions, and any income that may accrue from them, can drop as well as rise. When trading any investment that fluctuates in price or value you may get back less than you invested. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Any arrangements made between you and any third party named on the Site and/or App or by playing FDT are at your sole risk and responsibility.
The Site and/or App may include hyperlinks to other websites that are not owned and/or controlled by us.
