3. Important Securities Disclaimer
Art Collins Trading is a publisher. You understand that the no content published as part of the Membership Service constitutes a recommendation that any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person. You further understand that none of the information providers or their affiliates will advise you personally concerning the nature, potential, value or suitability of any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction, investment strategy or other matter. To the extent any of the content published as part of the Membership Service may be deemed to be investment advice, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person.
You understand that the Membership Service may contain opinions from time to time with regard to securities mentioned in other Art Collins Trading products, and that those opinions may be different from those obtained by using another Art Collins Trading product. You understand and agree that, although we do not permit our editorial staff to hold positions in individual stocks, outside contributing columnists or their affiliates may write about securities in which they or their firms have a position, and that they may trade for their own account. In addition, outside contributing columnists may be subject to certain restrictions on trading for their own account. However, you understand and agree that at the time of any transaction that you make, one or more contributing columnists or their affiliates may have a position in the securities written about.
You understand that performance data is supplied by sources believed to be reliable, that the calculations herein are made using such data, and that such calculations are not guaranteed by these sources, the information providers, or any other person or entity, and may not be complete.
From time to time, reference may be made in our marketing materials to prior articles and opinions we have published. These references may be selective, may reference only a portion of an article or recommendation, and are likely not to be current. As markets change continuously, previously published information and data may not be current and should not be relied upon.
When U.S. exchanges are open, stock and fund quotes are at least 15 minutes old. When U.S. exchanges are not open, quotes are only current as of the close of the last day of trading. Before selling or buying any stock or other investment, you should consult with a qualified broker or other financial professional to verify pricing information.
