Trading foreign exchange and futures on margin carries a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange and futures you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange and futures trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.

I am not a financial planner, I am not an investment advisor, I am not a broker. I do not advise people on their retirement planning and I do not manage anyone else's money nor do I seek to. I do not advise the purchase or sale of any security. You should not rely solely on the material presented here for your trading and investment decisions. You should perform your own due diligence in accordance with your trading system before making any trade or investment.

The purposes of my posts here are threefold. First, they are educational – to show you how to use technical tools in analysing securities and markets. Second, they’re used to express my opinions about the state of the markets and certain securities. And third, they’re to promote the sale of my publications. There is no other purpose, implied or expressed.

I am fallible. Although I make a best efforts to be correct in my postings here I can be and sometimes am wrong.

The data I use in constructing these posts come from sources that are generally deemed to be reliable. But I cannot guarantee their accuracy and data errors can lead to false conclusions.  

I am an active trader in the markets. I may hold positions in the securities mentioned in my posts. I may trade in and out of those positions at any time without notice. I do not disclose my holdings or my trading activities.  My activities in the markets may indeed bias my opinions expressed here.

Markets are continually changing, as are my opinions of them and of individual securities. I may post an opinion of a security and later change that opinion without posting that change, and then go ahead and trade in accordance with my new opinion, which may be at odds with my original posted opinion. Therefore you should not use my posts as trading or investment advice.

You are solely responsible for the outcomes of all of your trades and investments, regardless of what I may post here.
