No investment recommendations or financial advice provided; Risks related to social trading and trade copying

Trading is never without risk and you are urged to carefully read and consider the following before utilizing any or all of our services:
(a) No aspect of the Site is intended to provide, or should be construed as providing, any investment, tax or other financial related advice of any kind. You should not consider any content on the Site to be a substitute for professional financial advice. While individual participants may offer investment advice or opinions and/or effect a transaction which may be subsequently copied by another trader, such advice, opinions, or trades amount to nothing more than exchanges between persons who may be anonymous or unidentifiable or simply the execution of a trade by such traders. Tradeo does not provide investment advice directly, indirectly, implicitly, or in any manner whatsoever by making such information and/or features available to you. You should use any information gathered from here and/or utilize the social trading features only as a starting point for your own independent research.
(b) The Site, Services, and Social Trading Features are provided by Tradeo solely for informational purposes. Tradeo and/or any on its behalf, including its affiliates and their employees and agents are not investment or financial advisers. ANY INVESTMENT DECISIONS YOU MAY MAKE IN RELIANCE ON INFORMATION WHICH IS AVAILABLE ON OUR WEBSITE OR AS A RESULT OF THE USE OF THE SOCIAL TRADING FEATURES, ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND TRADEO, AND ITS PARTNERS, AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES THAT YOU MAY SUSTAIN. YOU ARE SOLELY AND EXCLUSIVELY RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING WHETHER ANY INVESTMENT, OR STRATEGY, OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT OR SERVICE IS APPROPRIATE OR SUITABLE FOR YOU BASED ON YOUR INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES AND PERSONAL AND FINANCIAL SITUATION.
(c) If you choose to copy specific traders and/or trades and/or to engage in transactions based on content on the Site, then such decision and transactions and any consequences flowing therefrom are your sole responsibility.
(d) A copied trader’s positions will be copied with the same proportional amounts and with the same leverage, to the maximum extent possible. All such positions will be closed automatically if and when closed by the copied trader for whatsoever reason, without providing any further notice and without any action on your part and/or if the copied trader positions were closed manually by the follower.
(e) You may achieve a materially different result than the user or trade leader that you followed, especially if you place additional trades in your account or you modify or cancel an order generated by a the System.
(f) Any past performance indicated on this Site is not indicative of future results. Anyone investing should be able and prepared to bear a loss of his or her entire investment. You are fully responsible for any losses you may sustain as a result of our automatic execution of instructions generated as a result of the utilization of any of the Social Trading Features.

Risks related to Over the Counter foreign currency

The following describes some, but not all, of the risks of trading in the over the counter foreign currency market (“OTC Foreign Currency”). Trading in the OTC Foreign Currency market is not suitable for many members of the public. You should carefully consider whether trading is appropriate for you in light of your experience, objectives, financial resources and other relevant circumstances.
(a) Currency Risks. Transactions involving foreign currencies involve risks not common to investments denominated entirely in a person’s domestic currency. Such enhanced risks include the risks of political or economic policy changes in a foreign nation, which may substantially and permanently alter the conditions, terms, marketability or price of a foreign currency. Fluctuations in currency rates where there is a need to convert from the currency denomination of a foreign currency-denominated contract to another currency may affect the profit or loss in transactions in such contracts (whether they are traded in a customer’s own or another jurisdiction).
(b) Foreign Currency Dealer as Principal. Foreign currency dealers typically act as the counterparty to all foreign currency contracts executed through a dealer’s system. A foreign currency dealer is not required to continue to make markets in foreign currency and may refuse to accept any order for any or no reason, including but not limited to market volatility, illiquidity in the related interbank foreign currency market, and/or the failure of a customer to have sufficient funds on deposit with foreign currency dealer to margin the position. In particular, during periods of market volatility, it may be difficult or impossible to determine a fair price or to assess the exposure to risk, liquidate an existing position, or to assess the value of open positions. For these reasons, among others, transactions in foreign currency involve increased risks.
(c) Prices May Be Different From Prices Reported Elsewhere. The prices posted by a foreign currency dealer could differ from and may not necessarily reflect the broader market for foreign currencies. In order to determine margin requirements, a foreign currency dealer will select closing prices to be used. Prices used by a foreign currency dealer may vary from those available to banks and other participants in the interbank market. Consequently, a foreign currency dealer may exercise considerable discretion in setting margin requirements and collecting margin funds.
