Risk Futures and options trading have large potential rewards, but also large potential risk. You must be aware of the risks and be willing to accept them in order to invest in the futures and options markets. You may lose all or more of your initial investment.
Suitability Trading, especially trading leveraged instruments, involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. You should carefully consider whether trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances, knowledge, and financial resources. Do not trade with money you cannot afford to lose.
Performance No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those discussed. The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results.
Hypothetical results Hypothetical or simulated performance results have many limitations, including: 1. The trading system or program that produces these results are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. 2. Simulated trading does not involve actual financial risk and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. In particular, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of losses are material points which can adversely affect actual trading results. 3. There are numerous factors related to the markets in general which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results, all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.
