Disclosures

 

The CFTC (Commodities Futures Trading Commission) mandates that you be shown their risk disclosure statements BEFORE you are shown futures trading hypothetical performance results.

 

Therefore,

 

Please read the disclosures presented below, then click on ‘I accept’ at the bottom of the page to activate this website.

All performance data shown in this website is hypothetical performance in that it is not the result of actual trading.  Consequently, the following very concise and well written two paragraphs provided by the CFTC are applicable:

 “HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS MAY HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.”

”ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY EFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.”

The CFTC wants you to be presented a balanced picture of futures trading.  Looking at some futures trading promotional material, you would think that futures trading is a super-charged savings account, where you get a gigantic rate of return with no risk.  In reality, the leverage that gives futures trading so much potential can also work against you.  Not only do you have the potential for highly leveraged gains, but you also have the potential for highly leveraged losses.  That is why FUTURES TRADING INVOLVES SIGNIFICANT RISK AND IS NOT SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE.  That is why YOU SHOULD CAREFULLY CONSIDER YOUR FINANCIAL POSITION BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN FUTURES TRADING.

Another problem area is that some futures trading promotional material basically assures you that because there have been hypothetical or actual trading gains in the past, those gains are certain to continue into the future.  The truth is that PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE.  Because of this and because of factors such as contained in the next paragraph, ONE SHOULD NOT TRADE WITH MONEY ONE CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE.

Futures trading could cause you losses and financial hardship.  A few examples of events that could cause losses are:  Stop loss orders could fail to limit your losses to the specified amount.  Markets could be closed when you expected them to be open.  Overnight price changes could cause losses.  You could get stuck in a position because of ‘limit’ moves.  The methodology you use to trade futures could fail to produce profits in excess of losses, or could produce only losses.  Losses could exceed your account balance.
