U.S. Regulatory Agency Required Disclosure:

Hypothetical performance results can have many differences from actual results. Hypothetical results have the advantage of hindsight and do not have the component of "Real" financial risk. There are a number of factors that cannot be accounted for during the preparation of a trading system/program using hypothetical performances such as the ability to withstand losses, follow a plan while suffering a draw down and adhere to a system while suffering losses. Past performance is no guarantee of future performance or success. It is possible to lose more than your original investment regardless of what instrument you trade IE. options, forex, futures, equities or securities. You should never invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Each asset class is expected to have different risk and return characteristics and will perform differently in any given market environment. You should consult your adviser or broker before making any investment decisions.  

Any information that is made available by BCTS on this website or by any other supplemental means is not an offer or suggestion to buy or sell securities, forex, options, futures or any other investment instruments of any kind. If you choose to trade your own account based upon your reliance on BCTS strategies, you do so at your own risk. All information provided is for education purposes only and is based solely on our opinion(s) and experience(s). BCTS and I are not a licensed investment advisory service nor is it registered with any government agency for the purpose of providing trading advice. We have no intent or desire to suggest which securities, futures, options, currencies or any other investment instruments to buy or sell. Any testimonial that is provided, is not paid for and is done so voluntarily. The expressed opinions of those submitting their unique experiences are not necessarily indicative of future results nor are they meant to be representative of all of our clients. Your trading results may vary. Trading any financial instrument involves substantial risk and there is always the risk of loss.

CFTC RULE 4.41 - HYPOTHETICAL OR SIMULATED PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE CERTAIN LIMITATIONS. UNLIKE AN ACTUAL PERFORMANCE RECORD, SIMULATED RESULTS DO NOT REPRESENT ACTUAL TRADING. ALSO, SINCE THE TRADES HAVE NOT BEEN EXECUTED, THE RESULTS MAY HAVE UNDER-OR-OVER COMPENSATED FOR THE IMPACT, IF ANY, OF CERTAIN MARKET FACTORS, SUCH AS LACK OF LIQUIDITY. SIMULATED TRADING PROGRAMS IN GENERAL ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE DESIGNED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFIT OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL, OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE DISCUSSED WITHIN THIS SITE, SUPPORT AND TEXTS. OUR COURSE(S), PRODUCTS AND SERVICES SHOULD BE USED AS LEARNING AIDS ONLY AND SHOULD NOT BE USED TO INVEST REAL MONEY. IF YOU DECIDE TO INVEST REAL MONEY, ALL TRADING DECISIONS SHOULD BE YOUR OWN.
