Before you view performance information, and in order to ensure that you understand the risks of commodities trading and the assumptions under which the data is presented, please take the time to read and acknowledge the following statements by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.
DISCLOSURES & DISCLAIMERS
The following disclosure & disclaimers apply both to this site & to materials that might be leased or purchased from TradingVisions.
Commodity trading bears a high degree of risk. People can and do lose money. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
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 PERFORMANCE 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 OF 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.
ANY COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORD PRESENTED HEREIN ARE HYPOTHETICAL AND THESE SYSTEMS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN TRADED TOGETHER IN THE MANNER SHOWN IN THE COMPOSITE. 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 A COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORD SIMILAR TO THAT SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A HYPOTHETICAL COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORD AND THE ACTUAL RECORD SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF A HYPOTHETICAL COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORD IS THAT DECISIONS RELATING TO THE SELECTION OF SYSTEMS AND THE ALLOCATION OF ASSETS AMONG THOSE SYSTEMS WERE MADE WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT BASED UPON THE HISTORICAL RATES OF RETURN OF THE SELECTED SYSTEMS. THEREFORE, COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORDS INVARIABLY SHOW POSITIVE RATES OF RETURN. ANOTHER INHERENT LIMITATION ON THESE RESULTS IS THAT THE ALLOCATION DECISIONS REFLECTED IN THE PERFORMANCE RECORD WERE NOT MADE UNDER ACTUAL MARKET CONDITIONS AND, THEREFORE, CANNOT COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FURTHERMORE, THE COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORD MAY BE DISTORTED BECAUSE THE ALLOCATION OF ASSETS CHANGES FROM TIME TO TIME AND THESE ADJUSTMENTS ARE NOT REFLECTED IN THE COMPOSITE.
The information presented in this site is for general information purposes only. Nothing presented on this web site or in the purchased materials should be construed as a recommendation to buy or sell any security or to participate in any particular trading strategy. Trading in Commodity Futures is very risky. There is a possibility of substantial financial loss, greater even than monies initially invested. The simulated, hypothetical performance results presented herein have certain inherent limitations, due to the fact that the trades have not actually been executed. Simulated trading results, in general, may be influenced by the fact that the algorithms which generated them were designed in consideration of historical trends, and with the benefit of hindsight. Past real or hypothetical performance of the TradingVisions systems is not a guarantee of future results, real or hypothetical. No representation is made that any trading account would, or would be likely to achieve profits or losses similar to the real or hypothetical results described herein. TradingVisions Systems, Inc.

Under no circumstances shall TSI be liable for any special or consequential damages that result from the use of or the inability to use, the materials provided by TSI. Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

The information, data, and methodologies contained in this site and available for purchase or lease (the Information) is not intended to be published or made available to any person in any jurisdiction where doing so would result in contravention of any applicable laws or regulations. Accordingly, if it is prohibited to make such information available in your jurisdiction or to you (by reason of your nationality, residence or otherwise) it is not directed at you. Before reviewing the pages of our site or making a purchase, you must be satisfied that doing so will not result in such a contravention and is not so prohibited, and by proceeding to review them you will be confirming that this is not the case. TSI has taken all reasonable care & precaution to ensure that the Information is fair & accurate, or has been compiled from sources believed to be reliable. Nevertheless, TSI does not make any representations or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy, completeness, or fitness for any purpose or use of the Information. The Information may not in all cases be current, & it is subject to continuous change.

TSI does not warrant that the Information is error free, & shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, or consequential loss arising from any use of or reliance on this Information. No representation is being made that any account will achieve similar results to any other account or actual or hypothetical performance numbers cited herein or at the TradingVisions sites. Results can vary significantly from brokerage to brokerage, depending upon many factors not under the control of TradingVisions. Any portfolios recommended by TSI are suggested combinations that are subject to change without notice. The ultimate choice and responsibility of a trading portfolio is the client’s alone. Any results or performance numbers are hypothetical, apply only to the stated recommended portfolios and systems, and are not intended to show the results of past recommended portfolios or systems. TradingVisions is not responsible for notifying clients about changes in portfolios or systems and has neither the right nor responsibility to alter what is traded in client accounts. Unless otherwise stated, hypothetical results reported by TradingVisions are those generated by the latest version of the systems, including the specific rules & parameter settings. It is therefore not advisable, nor is it the intended purpose, to use these hypothetical results as a guide to what past results should have been achieved by utilizing the version of the systems in effect at a past time. In some cases, slightly different entry and exit times and prices may be used in leased and/or purchased copies of the trading systems and between brokerage firms, in an attempt to lessen the impact of multiple orders reaching the market at or close to the same time. While over time and an extended number of trades these differences have in the past tended to be small and immaterial, they may in fact prove to have a material impact or over shorter timeframes have a material impact. This, combined with differences in broker execution, means that the specific results of any actual clients may be materially different from the results herein.
TSI IS NOT A REGISTERED BROKER-DEALER OR FINANCIAL ADVISOR & DOES NOT PROVIDE PERSONAL INVESTMENT ADVICE.
For the purposes of this site, "real-time" means trades and results that are out-of-sample, i.e. they occurred after the rules for the systems were established or after trading of the system began. "Real-time" does not necessarily refer to actual trades taken. BY CLICKING "I ACCEPT" BELOW, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THE ABOVE INFORMATION.
