Risk Disclosure

Last updated: November 1, 2017

OVERVIEW

This Risk Disclosure is provided by InvestaWeb (“InvestaWeb” or “we” or “our”), and applies to investaweb.com, including, without limitation, both mobile and online versions of our web sites (collectively, referred to herein as the “Site”), and is provided for the purpose of disclosing the risks involved with trading and investing.

  • Content is for informational and educational purposes only, not investment advice.
  • Trading, investing, and entrepreneurship involves a high degree of risk.
  • We’re not investment or trading advisers.
  • Nothing we say is a recommendation to buy or sell anything.
  • There are no guarantees or certainties in trading or investing.
  • Many traders and investors lose money. Don’t trade with money you can’t afford to lose.
  • Precious metals carry risk. Cryptocurrencies are an extremely risky asset.

Before deciding to invest in precious metals, currency pairs and/or cryptocurrencies, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. Trading precious metals, foreign currency pairs, CFD’s and cryptocurrencies is highly speculative. Most people lose money with trading. There is considerable exposure to risk in any Contract for Difference (CFD) and bullion transaction, including, but not limited to, leverage, creditworthiness, limited regulatory protection and market volatility that may substantially affect the price or liquidity of a currency or commodity.

The leveraged nature of trading foreign currencies, CFD’s and cryptocurrencies means that any market movement will have an equally proportional effect on your deposited funds. This may work against you as well as for you. The possibility exists that you could sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and be required to deposit additional funds to maintain your position. If you fail to meet any margin requirement, your position may be liquidated and you will be responsible for any resulting losses.

YOUR INVESTMENT MAY LOSE VALUE

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. There are no guarantees of profit nor of avoiding losses when trading cryptocurrencies, equities, or commodity futures contracts. Hypothetical results have many inherent limitations and are not predictive of actual success. No representation is being made that any trade will or is likely to achieve profits similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trader. Testimonials are not indicative of future success and have not been independently verified.

CFTC RULE 4.41 – 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.
