Quantitative Trading Strategies for High Probability Trades and Managing Trading Risk
QuantDirection, LLC (“QuantDirection,” or “Company”) is strictly a financial research publishing firm (a publisher) and does not provide individual investment advice to its subscribers. The Company is not a registered investment adviser or a registered securities broker/dealer.
The advice we provide is published generally, is not personal to you and does not take account of your personal circumstances. We do not assess the suitability or appropriateness of any trade or investment in light of your personal circumstances, including your knowledge and understanding, financial strength, tax liability or appetite for risk.
If you need guidance on interpreting our information & analysis in light of your personal circumstances, you should seek independent advice from an appropriately qualified professional. You should also interpret our information & analysis within the context of the risk warnings that are contained within it.
The information we publish is based on The Company’s and/or our editors’ opinions plus our statistical and financial data and independent research. Although we make every effort to provide the most accurate and updated information possible, our information cannot take into consideration your personal finances and goals, and therefore is not intended to be used as customized recommendations to buy, hold, or sell securities, or to engage in any trading strategy, or that an investment strategy is suitable for any specific person. Such recommendations may only be made by a personal adviser or broker you select.
Trading in securities (including, without limitation, stocks, options, warrants, ETFs, mutual funds, precious metals, commodities and bonds) is considered speculative and involves risk of loss and volatility. Although our editors and publications make every effort to protect your principal, you can lose money. Therefore, they are not intended to be used as your only investment resource or for all of your investments. If your goal for a certain portion of your funds is strictly capital preservation, we believe you should invest those funds in conservative investments such as short-term US Treasury securities or equivalent.
For more information on prudent investing, also see the information available at the websites of the Securities and Exchange Commission at www.sec.gov and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority at www.FINRA.org. Any money you allocate to speculative investments should be strictly the money you can afford to risk without jeopardizing your daily life, and without negatively impacting your plans for education, retirement, or long-term care.
Most of the information we publish is derived from primary sources, including U.S. government agencies as well as the financial institutions or ETF’s and indexes we cover. We believe our data sources are accurate, but we do not verify their accuracy independently. Therefore, we cannot assure that the information is accurate or complete. Nor do we guarantee the success of any investment decision you may make using our data, information, or recommendations.
REQUIRED RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT
Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described here. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses like those shown in the hypothetical performance results. 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 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 or to 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.

Monetary and income results are based on many factors. Company has no way of knowing how well you will do, as they do not know you, your background, your work ethic, or your business skills or practices.

Furthermore, a report may contain hypothetical or simulated performance results, which have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading in real markets. 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. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown in this website or any other QuantDirection publication.
Potential for Loss.
While we are hopeful that the information provided in our publications leads our subscribers to make a profit, however there is substantial risk in investing. You may lose some, or all, of the principal you invest in the market. This can happen due to market conditions, political risk, interest rates, company specific risk, and a wide array of other, unforeseen events.
In addition, while our recommendations have been successful in some cases in the past, past performance is not a predictor of future success. Individual investments, based on purchases and sales at various points in time, may yield different results.
There are additional risks associated with specific kinds of securities. We generally research the major indices however they can be impacted by Companies with large market capitalization.
There is also the issue of volatility (price fluctuations) and liquidity (the ability to rapidly find a buyer or seller on the other side of a transaction) that may affect trading as well as market stops by regulators or marketplaces.
As stated above, no representation or implication is being made that using the strategies or tactics, or the information in any QuantDirection publication or on its website will generate profits or ensure avoidance of losses.
