Risk Disclosure


THE RISK OF LOSS IN TRADING FUTURES, OPTIONS, STOCKS AND FOREX CAN BE SUBSTANTIAL. YOU SHOULD, THEREFORE, CAREFULLY CONSIDER WHETHER SUCH TRADING IS SUITABLE FOR YOU IN LIGHT OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES AND FINANCIAL RESOURCES. YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING POINTS:


1. You may sustain a total loss of the funds that you deposit with your broker to establish or maintain a position in the futures,stock, options or Forex markets, and you may incur losses beyond these amounts. If the market moves against your position you may be called upon by your broker to deposit a substantial amount of additional margin funds, on short notice, in order to maintain your position. If you do not provide the required funds within the time required by your broker, your position may be liquidated at a loss, and you will be liable for the resulting deficit in your account.

2. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position. This can occur, for example, when the market reaches a daily price fluctuation limit (“limit move”). 3. Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop limit” orders, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions on the exchange where the order is placed may make it impossible to execute such orders.

4. All futures, stock, options and Forex positions involve risk, and a “spread” position may not be less risky than an outright “long” or “short” position.

5. The high degree of leverage (gearing) that is often obtainable in futures, stock, options and Forex trading because of small margin requirements can work against you as well as for you. Leverage (gearing) can lead to large losses as well as gains.

6. You should consult your broker concerning the nature of the protections available to safeguard funds or property deposited for your account.

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS 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 THE 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 AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.

This website is dedicated to information sharing. It is not intended as an advisory service for making investment in any specific market. Health Investment†& Financing publishes information that is educational in nature and designed to contribute to your overall understanding of various types of technical analysis and how we apply this information to the financial markets. We are in no way recommending the purchase, sale or short sale of any securities, options, futures or other financial instruments.

Trading of stocks, options, and futures may not be suitable for everyone and may involve the risk of losing part of your money, all of your money, or in the case of futures, more than all of your money. We do not offer our various model portfolios as trading recommendations for you to copy. These models represent our own accounts and/or opinions and are intended to teach our style of short-term trading. It is up to you to make your own decisions as what you want to do with your own portfolio.

We do not claim to have a special insight into the markets that prevent us from making mistakes. We do make mistakes. However, we believe our successes more than make up for our mistakes, and will continue to offer our education until proven otherwise. Observe our mistakes and utilize these lessons in your own trading programs. Trading of stocks, and especially options and futures, may not be suitable for everyone. Though there are large potential rewards, short-term trading is very risky, especially when your accounts are fully margined. There is certainly a chance in which you can lose all of your money.

If you are trading futures, there is a chance that your account can go negative, and that you will end up owing money to your broker. In addition, prior to buying or selling a stock, option, or futures contract, an investor will need a broker, and they must meet suitability requirements in order to trade these specific instruments.

By accepting this disclaimer you are acknowledging the risks involved in trading the stock, options, and futures markets and are also acknowledging that you, the subscriber, and not Protrader1on1.com, are solely responsible for any losses, financial or otherwise, as a result of using this service.

Employees of Health Investment†& Financing may or may not have positions in the educational picks posted to the site through its newsletters or in the trading rooms. In addition, hypothetical performance results 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 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, including the ability to withstand losses. Finally, past performance is in no way indicative of future results.

If you find yourself interested in our investment advice, remember that it is important to diversify your investments and not throw all of your money into one basket or technique.

We are here to teach by example, through our successes and mistakes.
