Neither the information nor any opinion contained in the website constitutes a solicitation or offer by us to buy or to sell any securities, futures, options or other financial instruments or to provide any investment advice or service.
3. Suitability of Investment
We do not provide advice concerning the suitability or value of any particular investment in futures or options or regarding any investment strategy, nor do we endorse or recommend products of companies that manufacture products whose advertisements may appear on our websites.
4. Order Capacity
System response times may vary due to a variety of factors, including trading volumes, market conditions, and system performance.
5. Technological Failures
We shall not be liable in any way for any inaccuracy, error or delay in or omission of any information or the transmission or delivery of any information, or for any loss or damage arising from or occasioned by any such inaccuracy, error, delay or omission, or for any non-performance or interruption of information due to any act or omission, or for any force majeure (i.e. flood, extraordinary weather condition, earthquake, or other act of God, fire, war, insurrection, riot, labor dispute, accident, action of government, communications, power failure or equipment or software malfunction) or any other cause beyond our reasonable control.
Trading futures and options is a volatile and complex business that involves risk of loss. The valuation of such instruments may fluctuate, and, as a result, you may incur significant losses. Before you trade, you should consider your financial experience, goals and financial resources, and know how much you can afford to lose above and beyond your initial investment. Futures markets are also extremely volatile, and are also highly leveraged.
7. Risks of Margin Trading
Because of the nature of their markets, futures and options are always traded on margin, and you can receive a margin call on any significant price change, up or down. In such case, you would be required to deposit additional collateral into your account. If you do not respond in a timely manner, the existing collateral in your account could be sold, or, in the case of futures, your positions liquidated, in order to cover the call, and you would be responsible for any losses to your account. To reduce this risk, do not overextend yourself. Maintain account equity well above the minimum margin maintenance and variation requirements, and be aware that these requirements can change at any time.
8. Tax Issues
The investment services and products mentioned in the sites may often have tax consequences; therefore, it is important to bear in mind that we do not provide tax advice. The levels and bases of taxation can change. Your tax affairs are your own responsibility, and you should consult your own attorneys or other tax advisors in order to understand the tax consequences of any products and services mentioned on these sites.
