But you can type what you need to ask and I can answer in the morning which is ok
If I ask someone whether their services could handle my demands and they said yes and guaranteed it however it turns out that the services could not handle any of my demand and the transaction cost is much more higher than their 'discount' rate. I have asked which platform for this to use, whether hte retail one or the pro one, all of the people prior to depositing money said the retail one, however, when i complained formally they told me to move to the pro platform. Is this misselling and negligence ?
It could just be breach of contract.
Its not negligence I dont think
But it sounds like misrepresentation
That is where someone makes a representation and you rely on it and enter into the contract
If that representation turns out to be false then it is breach of contract by misrepresntation
It's not misselling?
I went to ask whether my execution could be improved, as I was complaining about slippage. I was asking whether I should use the Pro instead which is a currenx platform, however, the person said no, TradeStation II is sufficient enough to handle my slippages and eliminate them. Simply my spread is a 0.5 pip mark up from the "raw" spread they get, which they claim to be 0.2 pips from their "more than 15 LPs". Now, the joke is someone called me from the Texas office and promised a better execution to match it or whatsoever, again saying that PRO platform is not necessary. Ok then I started trading again, I was kind of out of the markets for a bit, then I see 2-3 pip slippage on every trade, despite it being 0.5 pip mark up, making it impossible to scalp and I am at many occasions forced to close positions at B/E price due to the issues experienced. I complained about it, then the guy in London suggested to move me to Pro, despite these guys going hey, you can use TS II, further than that I made another complaint to the trades audit guy and he just told me to use a market range of allowing maximum slippage of how many pips you want (This defeats the purpose of trading). Probably miselling and negligence you think?
this is more detailed.
Ok - I dont really understand that.
All I can say is if you were told something that is not true then it would be breach of contract by misrepresentation.
Negligence is something physical that causes a loss or injury, such as running someone over, or an operation that went wrong
Financial loss is breach of contract
What about misselling
its the same as misrepresentation
The facts which induced you into the contract are false.
Therefore it would still be misrepresentation
what are my arguing points and legislations
Breach of contract by misrepresentation
Misrepresentation Act 1967
What could my remedy be
Rescission or damages and rescission
I deposited 120,000
i lost a lot of it due to the fact that the costs are high clouding my judgements and making it expensive to do business with them
Yes of course. But if you want to recover it you would need to go to Court.
This is a financial service so i guess I could go to the ombundsman
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
would i be entitled for the full aount deposited?
what is the good adn services act again?
does it apply to this?
That applies to services where someone supplies a service. S.13 is where someone must act with all reasonable skill and care
Financial services generally not
That is because they generally have a regulator to govern them
It can apply - but misrepresentation is your best head of claim
Can I clarify anything else for you tonight?
