COMPANY is under no obligation to send any volume of Trading Alerts and as such they may be sent with any frequency that the COMPANY deems appropriate.
The Trading Alerts may include probabilities on price direction which are derived from price condition correlation data. These probabilities represent past performance of a price condition over a five-year period. When evaluating these probabilities, subscribers must evaluate these probabilities by performing their own analysis including taking into consideration other factors, including but not limited to the following:
Past results are not a guarantee of future performance;
Data compilation is subject to error or may not be complete;
Data sets are over five years, however variations in correlation may occur over more recent data sets or more similar volatility levels. Subscribers are provided with price condition numbers and are encouraged to further qualify the correlations provided by using Advanced Search: https://www.quantdirection.com/advanced-search and their own independent analysis;
While we define a price condition as a unique price move and track each price condition over time, there are differences in price conditions which may impact the correlation values of the behavior over time.
Trading Guidance may be included with Trading Alerts. This Trading Guidance is intended to represent an example of how any individual referenced price condition can be traded. Subscribers should not consider Trading Guidance as a trade recommendation since they are suggested examples and as such do require further independent analysis & qualification by the subscriber before trades are made. In addition, the guidance provided is only one example of a type of trade that can be made with the provided price condition. It does not imply that there are not better trade strategies that may be available or that the Trading Guidance that is provided will be successful.

Forward Looking Statements.
Some of the content and information we provide may contain forward-looking statements, which are based on current expectations, estimates and projections. Any such forward looking statements or forecasts are based on assumptions; actual results are expected to vary from any such statements or forecasts. No reliance should be placed on any such statements or forecasts when making any investment decision.
Further, any opinions expressed in any QuantDirection publication are statements of judgment as of the date of publication, subject to change without further notice, and may not necessarily be reprinted in a future publications or elsewhere. Price movement probabilities provided herein are subject to change at any time. Past and current price behavior that might have led to profitable trades are not necessarily indicative of future results, which may in fact result in a loss.
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 any analysis or publication.
Potential for Loss.
While we are hopeful that the information provided from our platform and our publications enables our subscribers to make better investing decisions, 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 changing market conditions, political risk, interest rates, company specific risk, trading style and other conditions and unforeseen events.
In addition, while past movement probabilities in the past have been documented and are provided by this platform, 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.
As stated above, no representation or implication is being made that using the strategies or tactics, or any of the information from the QuantDirection platform, including data or analytics provided therin or from any publication will generate profits or ensure avoidance of losses.
YOU SHOULD VERIFY ALL CLAIMS & ANALYSIS AND DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH BEFORE INVESTING IN ANY SECURITIES MENTIONED ON THIS WEBSITE. INVESTING IN SECURITIES IS SPECULATIVE AND CARRIES A HIGH DEGREE OF RISK. YOU MAY LOSE PART OR ALL OF YOUR PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT.
Your Obligation to Verify. All information contained in Company’s publications should be independently verified. We urge our subscribers to utlilize our information and tools in addition to performing their own due diligence. We do not represent that our data is error free.
QuantDirection subscription fees are charged at the beginning of an applicable subscription period. Your QuantDirection membership(s) will automatically renew on the renewal date, at the then-current rate. We may provide advance notification by email before we charge you for an auto-renewal. BY ALLOWING FOR YOUR RENEWAL, YOU PROVIDE YOUR ELECTRONIC AUTHORIZATION FOR FUTURE CHARGES AGAINST YOUR CREDIT CARD ON FILE. Accordingly, you agree that your membership fee or subscription will be billed automatically at the beginning of each renewal period at the then-current rate (plus sales tax, if applicable) to the credit card you used in your most recent transaction with us.
QuantDirection reserves the right to increase a service’s fees or institute new charges upon reasonable notice.
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.
The information contained on the site is based on sources and information reasonably believed to be accurate as of the time it was recorded or created. However, this material deals with topics and markets that are constantly changing and are subject to ongoing changes related to technology and the market place as well as legal and related compliance issues. Therefore, the completeness and current accuracy of the in the site cannot be guaranteed. Your use of the information contained herein is at your own risk. It is your responsibility to evaluate the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information, opinion, advice or other content contained in the site. You will seek the advice of professionals, as appropriate, regarding the evaluation of any specific information, opinion, advice or other content.
Any case studies, examples, illustrations, or testimonials cannot guarantee that you will achieve similar results. In fact, your results may vary significantly and factors such as your market, personal effort and many other circumstances may and will cause results to vary There can be no assurance that any prior successes, or past results, as to income earnings, can be used as an indication of your future success or results. 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. Therefore, COMPANY does not guarantee or imply that you will get rich, that you will do as well, or that you will make any money at all. If you rely upon figures provided in the site; you must accept the risk of not doing as well.
Forward Looking Statements

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.

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.

Class Action Waiver
You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and therefore you may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations aren’t allowed.
The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless all relevant parties specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration.
If any clause within these Terms of Service (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from these Terms of Service, and the remainder of these Terms of Service will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, this entire Provision will be unenforceable, and the dispute will be decided by a court.
