2. PERFORMANCE CLAIMS
Focus Market Trader “Trade Ideas” provide examples of how an investor might employ the Content. The Trade Ideas are not an actual portfolio of investments but a methodology for generating Buy and Sell signals, based on the Company's proprietary investment process. The “Focus Markets Trade Idea Track Record” section of The Report and The Website is not based on actual transactions. The “Open $” and “Close $” are based on approximations of where an investor might have been able to execute trades on the dates specified. Whaley Global Research, LLC makes no guarantee that transactions could have been carried out at those prices. If you choose to track the “Trade Ideas” trade signals, you understand and agree that your actual results are likely to be different from the percentage returns reflected in the “Focus Markets Trade Idea Track Record” section of The Report and The Website. The performance figures quoted on the website and in the report are based on the assumption that trades are being executed in taxable brokerage accounts, with margin capabilities and risking 1% of capital per trade idea. For example, we had a SHORT trade idea for FXE in October 2015. The entry price for the trade idea was $112.58 and the risk price of $113.00. For the sake of performance tracking we assume a risk of $1,000 per $100,000 of account value. This would equate to a trader shorting 2,380 shares of FXE per $100,000 of capital. We get this share amount by dividing the $1,000 of risk capital by the $0.42 per share of risk in the trade ($113.00 risk price-$112.58 entry price). This trade idea was closed on February 4, 2016 at $109.47, for a per share profit of $3.11, or $7,401.80 per $100,000 of capital. This dollar based return equates to a 7.41% percentage return for the overall portfolio even though the cumulative return of FXE over that trade was just 2.69%.Differences may arise for a number of reasons, including but not limited to: The “Trade Ideas” do not account for transaction costs; The “Trade Ideas” do not account for margin interest costs; The “Trade Ideas” do not account for time delay before Buy, Sell, or other signals are viewed by you, including delays in the delivery of email or other messages; The “Trade Ideas” do not account for cash dividends; The “Trade Ideas” generally do not account for corporate actions such as stock splits, rights, and warrants, though the cost basis of positions in The “Trade Ideas” may occasionally be adjusted for the sake of accuracy, with all such adjustments being described in notes accompanying the positions in The “Trade Ideas”; The “Trade Ideas” do not consider possible lack of liquidity; The “Trade Ideas” do not consider tax consequences; The “Trade Ideas” trade signals do not indicate size of position; and The “Trade Ideas” do not give asset allocation guidance. It should not be assumed that the methods, techniques, or indicators presented in the Content will be profitable or that they will not result in losses. Past results of any trading system published by Company are not indicative of future returns by that system, and are not indicative of future returns which be realized by you. In addition, the indicators, strategies, columns, articles and all other features of Company’s products (collectively, the “Content”) are provided for informational and educational purposes only and should not be construed as investment advice. Examples presented on Company’s website are for educational purposes only. Such set-ups are not solicitations of any order to buy or sell. Accordingly, you should not rely solely on the Content in making any investment. Rather, you should use the Content only as a starting point for doing additional independent research in order to allow you to form your own opinion regarding investments. You should always check with your licensed financial advisor and tax advisor to determine the suitability of any investment.
