Important Product and Performance Disclaimers


Investments like stocks, bonds, futures, forex, options, and commodities are not FDIC insured, not obligations of any bank, and can lose value. Past results are not indicative of future performance. There is never a guarantee of profit or protection from loss. Stock Options Trades is not making any recommendations that any account will achieve profits or losses similar to those discussed.

Nothing contained on this site should be used or construed as an offer to sell, a solicitation of an offer to buy, or a recommendation for any security. Additionally, this information is not intended as investment, tax, financial or legal advice. Investors should seek such professional advice for their situation.

Furthermore, before buying or selling an option or any security, read the booklet “Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options.” Download a copy of the Options Disclosure Document on The Options /Clearing Corporations'(OCC) website http://www.theocc.com/publications/risks/riskchap1.jsp. This link reference is provided as a courtesy and does not imply that the OCC is endorsing Stock Options Trades or StockOptionsTrades.com.

All trading involves risk. Never trade with money you cannot afford to lose. Before engaging in such trading activities, you should understand the nature and extent of your rights and obligations and be aware of the risks involved.

Loss limiting strategies such as stop-loss orders may not work because market conditions could make it impossible to execute orders. Therefore, using combinations of securities including options positions such as a spread may be just as risky as simple long and short positions.

Investors outside of the United States are subject to securities and tax regulations within their applicable jurisdictions that we do not address on this website. Nothing on this site should be considered a solicitation to buy or an offer to sell shares of any investment in any jurisdiction where the offer or solicitation would be unlawful under the securities laws of such jurisdiction. Some of the investments described on this site are unavailable for sale in the United States or individual states. Some featured products invest in international securities, which can involve different risks than U.S. investments. Some of these risks include political or economic instability, difficulty predicting international trade patterns, lack of publicly available information about foreign companies, changes in foreign currency exchange rates, and the possibility of adverse changes in investment or exchange control regulations.

Stock Options Trades and our website, StockOptionsTrades.com make no representations about the suitability of the information presented. It is your responsibility to make your own investment decisions based on your investment objectives, risk profile, and circumstances. The trading strategies discussed may be unsuitable for you depending upon your specific investment objectives and financial position.

Stock Options Trades, StockOptionsTrades.com, or “we” or “us” is not registered as an investment adviser. Stock Options Money relies upon the “publishers’ exclusion” from the definition of investment adviser under Section 202(a)(11) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and corresponding state securities laws. We do not offer or provide personalized advice. Neither the information nor any opinion expressed constitutes a recommendation to purchase or sell a security or provide investment advice. The materials we provide are not substitutes for obtaining professional advice from a qualified person, firm, or corporation.

Municipal investments offer income free from federal income tax. Distributions may be subject to state and local taxes and the alternative minimum tax. Capital gains will be subject to capital gains taxes. Some of the investments and services on this site may not be available or appropriate for a retirement savings plan. Employer-sponsored retirement plans can have alternative and additional requirements exclusive to case-by-case scenarios. Please contact your financial advisor about any investment restrictions associated with your retirement plan.

You should contact a fund sponsor with specific questions about that sponsor’s funds. Exchange-traded funds frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value.
