The trading company will not be responsible to the profit or loss incurred by you in such tradings.
If you are due to  the firm you are to pay it , it is your bounden duty to make good the amount you are due to the firm. 
You cannot claim an excuse based on the losses you suffered.
The trading firm has all the rights to sue you to recover the amount due to them.

Yes why not. A suit for recovery of money with interest can be filed against you to recover the amount, which you may contest.

you should look the agreement because in this case liability will be fixed by the terms of indemnity clause of the agreement.
