GENERAL RISK DISCLAIMER
NY INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THIS DISCLAIMER OR BY SMARTTRADER, LLC IS FOR GENERAL INFORMATION PURPOSES AND NOT MEANT AS SPECIFIC ADVICE FOR YOUR INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES OR AS PERSONALIZED TRADING ADVICE.
By acknowledging this statement and contracting for the services provided by Smart Trader, LLC, a Florida Limited Liability Company with a principal address of 3900 Millenia Blvd. Ste. 200, Orlando, FL 32839 (“ST”, “we”, or “our”), you acknowledge that you have not sought advice from ST regarding the appropriateness of Forex trading for you, and ST has not provided any such advice to you.RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH FOREX TRADING
Trading spot foreign currencies on the Foreign Exchange (“Forex”) is not appropriate for all investors, and the risks of Forex trading can be substantial. You should carefully consider whether Forex trading is right for you in light of your particular circumstances and financial resources.
There is considerable exposure to risk in any foreign exchange transaction. Any transaction involving currencies involves risks including, but not limited to, the potential for changing political and/or economic conditions that may substantially affect the price or liquidity of a currency. Investments in foreign exchange speculation may also be susceptible to sharp rises and falls as the relevant market values fluctuate. The leveraged nature of Forex trading means that any market movement will have a proportional effect on your deposited funds. This may work against you as well as for you. Not only may investors get back less than they invested, but in the case of higher risk strategies, investors may lose the entirety of their investment. It is for this reason that when speculating in such markets it is generally recommended to use only risk capital or, in other words, only use money you can afford to lose.
You further agree and acknowledge that the trading signals provided to you by ST are not, and are not intended to be, an offer or solicitation to enter into any Forex transaction, or any type of trading or investment advice, recommendation or strategy. You acknowledge that it is solely your decision to determine which, if any, ST trading signals to use for trading (whether actual or simulated) at a retail Foreign Exchange Dealer, Futures Commission Merchant or other financial institution (collectively referred to as “Financial Institution”), and whether to send all, some, or none of the ST trading signals to such Financial Institution for execution. At no point will any trading signals provided by ST be individual to you or your particular circumstances, nor will they be personalized to you.
You understand that past performance associated with any trading signals offered by ST, whether actual, hypothetical or historically “back-tested” is neither necessarily indicative of nor a guarantee of future performance or success.
Trading ST signals may result in the total loss of the funds that you deposit at a Financial Institution, and you may incur losses in excess of your deposits. Leverage can work against you as well as for you.
Based on the foregoing, you agree that you shall not seek to hold ST responsible for any losses associated with any trading signals provided to you by ST In the event that any claims, suits, actions, damages, liabilities, obligations, losses, or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arise out of or relate to the relationship between ST and you, and/or any trading signals provided by ST to you, you agree to indemnify and hold ST harmless therefrom.

Options involve substantial risk and are not suitable for all investors. Options investors may lose the entire amount of their investment in a relatively short period of time. It is possible to owe more than you have invested in your brokerage account. Please be aware of your broker’s requirements for trading options. Before you decide to invest in the options market you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a substantial loss which could total more than your initial investment in a short period of time. Therefore, you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the risks associated with option trading, you should confer with a trusted and reliable independent financial advisor. None of the information provided by ST constitutes a solicitation to trade any investment or security of any kind.
