[31.] Termination of Transactions
31.1 Termination upon your request
31.1.1 You may request that we provide you with a quote for terminating a Transaction prior to the Settlement Date. Upon receipt of a request to terminate a Transaction, we may request further information from you, following which we will either: indicate that we are unable to provide a quote, or confirm the price for the relevant termination.
31.1.2 If we provide a quote to you in respect of any such request, it will be available for immediate execution only and we will be under no obligation to make such quote available to you on a continuing basis.
31.1.3 We are not obliged to provide a quote for termination of an FX Transaction and may decline to provide a quote at any time in our absolute discretion. You must therefore be prepared to remain in a Transaction until its Settlement Date.
31.1.4 Following receipt of a quote from us to terminate a Transaction, it is your responsibility to decide whether you wish to terminate such Transaction. If you decide you wish to do so, you may, prior to the expiry of that quote, instruct us to terminate such Transaction. An instruction from you to terminate a Transaction will be irrevocable and binding on you.
31.1.5 Such terminated Transaction will be settled in accordance with Cancellation and Refund Policy, and you will be responsible for any costs reasonably incurred by us in proceeding with the termination of such Transaction.
31.1.6 Where a Transaction is terminated, the Exit Cost will be calculated by us.
31.1.7 “Exit Cost” means a termination payment that is owed by you to us or us to you, as the case may be, as a result of the early termination of any Transaction. Following calculation of the Exit Cost, we will inform you of the Exit Cost that is owed by you to us or us to you, as the case may be, because of such termination whereupon such amount shall be due and payable. It may be that the current rate of exchange available to you as our customer has changed since you originally entered into the Transaction, such that the market value of the Transaction at the time that you request to terminate it is far less than the value of such Transaction at Order. In such circumstances, you would be required to pay a sum, which may be significant, to terminate such Transaction which reflects the costs and losses (including, but not limited to, any Hedge termination costs) we would incur in terminating your Transaction under the current market conditions as further described below.
