How risk affects your returns
Commodity Trading Involves Substantial Risk of Loss Your returns may change radically at any time because futures and options are subject, by nature, to abrupt changes in price. Commodity prices are volatile because they respond to many unpredictable factors: weather, labor strikes, inflation, foreign exchange rates, government monetary policies, etc. And, in an individual account, because your position in futures and options is leveraged, even a small move against your position may result in a large loss, including the loss of your entire initial margin payment and liability for additional losses. The same risk of loss applies to a commodity pool, but your loss may be limited to the amount of your investment.
Futures and option trading is inherently complex and risky, and it is not appropriate for all investors. You should know how much you potentially can lose and honestly evaluate if you can afford to lose it in view of your financial resources and investment goals. You should share your conclusions with your broker.
HYPOTHETICAL OR SIMULATED PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE CERTAIN LIMITATIONS. UNLIKE AN ACTUAL PERFORMANCE RECORD, SIMULATED RESULTS DO NOT REPRESENT ACTUAL TRADING. ALSO, SINCE THE TRADES HAVE NOT BEEN EXECUTED, THE RESULTS MAY HAVE UNDER-OROVER COMPENSATED FOR THE IMPACT, IF ANY, OF CERTAIN MARKET FACTORS, SUCH AS LACK OF LIQUIDITY. SIMULATED TRADING PROGRAMS IN GENERAL ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE DESIGNED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT.
To the extent any of our Services involves a model portfolio or an actual portfolio of investments, as described below, such portfolio of investments is chosen by the author in accordance with their stated investment strategy. Your actual results may differ from results reported for the portfolio for many reasons, including, without limitation:
- Performance results for the portfolio do not reflect actual trading commissions that You may incur;
- Performance results for the portfolio do not account for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity, that may affect Your results;
- The investments chosen for the portfolio may be volatile. Server, delivery delays and other factors may cause the price You obtain to differ substantially from the price at the time of the alert;
- The prices of investments in the portfolio at the point in time Prices may be higher than such prices at the time such investments were chosen for inclusion in the portfolio;
- You may not have the capital to trade as frequently as the portfolio;
- The size and timing of your purchase or sale of a stock may affect the price of the stock.
NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFIT OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. DO NOT RISK ANY MONEY YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE.
