Terms and Conditions
In using this web site and the products and services we supply you are agreeing
to our terms and conditions as set out here. Please also read our
All prospective MyPivots members, including trial members and monthly subscribers, must read this disclaimer & terms of service in its entirety, and agree to the terms set forth before using our indicators or any other service we provide.
Day trading can be extremely risky. Customers should be prepared to lose all of the funds that they have in their account for day trading and more. They should not fund their day trading activities with retirement savings, student loans, second mortgages, emergency funds, funds set aside for purposes such as education or home ownership, or funds required for current income.
Customers must be cautious of claims of large profits from day trading. Customers need to be wary of advertisements or other statements that emphasize the potential for large profits in day trading. Day trading can also lead to large and immediate financial losses. Day trading requires knowledge of securities markets.
Day trading requires in-depth knowledge of the securities markets and trading techniques and strategies. In attempting to profit through day trading, an investor must compete with professional, licensed traders employed by securities firms. An investor should have appropriate experience before engaging in day trading.
Day trading requires knowledge of a firm's operations. An investor should be familiar with a securities firm's business practices, including the operation of the firm's order execution systems, procedures, and should confirm that a firm has adequate systems capacity to permit customers to engage in day trading activities.
Day trading may result in large commissions. Day trading may require an investor to trade his or her account aggressively, and pay commissions on each trade. The total daily commissions that they pay on trades may add to losses or significantly reduce earnings.
Day trading on margin or short selling may result in losses beyond the initial investment. When customers day trade with funds borrowed from the firm or someone else, they can lose more than the funds originally placed at risk. A decline in the value of the securities that are purchased may require additional funds be paid to the firm to avoid the forced sale of those securities or other securities in an investors account. Short selling as part of a day trading strategy also may lead to extraordinary losses, because stock may have to be purchased at a very high price in order to cover a short position.
Upon using any of our indicators or services , whether trial or subscription, you agree to the following terms and conditions set forth.

This percentage is not guaranteed to be the actual result and should not be used to guarantee what YOUR profit will be when actually trading with YOUR capital. The risk of trading is always YOUR responsibility. Any trading strategies YOU undertake by utilizing the "Trading-Pit" can expose you to risk.
