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