HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS DISCLOSURE
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.
RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT
The risk of loss in trading can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. In considering whether to trade or to authorize someone else to trade for you, you should be aware of the following: If you purchase a commodity option you may sustain a total loss of the premium and of all transaction costs. If you purchase or sell a commodity futures contract or sell a commodity option or engage in off-exchange foreign currency trading you may sustain a total loss of the initial margin funds or security deposit and any additional funds that you deposit with your broker to establish or maintain your position. 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 requested funds within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated at a loss, and you will be liable for any resulting deficit in your account. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position. This can occur, for example, when the market makes a “limit move.” The placement of contingent orders by you or your trading advisor, such as a “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” order, will not necessarily limit your losses to the intended amounts, since market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. A “spread” position may not be less risky than a simple “long” or “short” position. The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity interest trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains. In some cases, managed commodity accounts are subject to substantial charges for management and advisory fees. It may be necessary for those accounts that are subject to these charges to make substantial trading profits to avoid depletion or exhaustion of their assets. You should also be aware that off-exchange foreign currency trading is not conducted in the interbank market. The funds deposited with a counterparty for such transactions will not receive the same protections as funds used to margin or guarantee exchange-traded futures and option contracts. If the counterparty becomes insolvent and you have a claim for amounts deposited or profits earned on transactions with the counterparty, your claim may not be treated as a commodity customer claim for purposes of subchapter iv of chapter 7 of the bankruptcy code and regulations thereunder. You may be a general creditor and your claim may be paid, along with the claims of other general creditors, from any monies still available after priority claims are paid. Even funds that the counterparty keeps separate from its own funds may not be safe from the claims of priority and other general creditors. A commodity trading advisor is prohibited by law from accepting funds in the trading advisor's name from a client for trading commodity interests. You must place all funds for trading in this trading program directly with a futures commission merchant or retail foreign exchange dealer, as applicable. This brief statement cannot disclose all the risks and other significant aspects of the commodity interest markets.
