Remember: you control your browser’s configuration. Your browser’s documentation is the best place to learn more about the characteristics and capabilities of your specific browser.

Prospectus

The rules for a specific market are described in the market’s prospectus. The prospectus describes the assets traded in the market, the rules of trade for the market, how liquidation values will be determined, and who can trade in the market.

To access a market's prospectus, first access the market screen for the market in which you are interested (shown as steps 1 and two in the picture below). Then click on the Market Name hypertext that appears in the upper right-hand side of your WebEx market window (denoted "5" in the picture above). You can also access the prospectus by using the Market Info button at the bottom of your WebEx screen (denoted "3" in the picture above).

Do not trade in a market unless you have read and understood the market’s prospectus.
