Terms and Conditions
(Customer Agreement)


 

The objective of Advanced Trading Systems, Inc. (ATS) is to provide a variety of quality trading products that will empower those committed to the art of trading the markets. All of the products offered by this company have been subjected to a rigorous research and development effort. The intent of the research is to develop trading tools that have the ability of performing in the unknown world of tomorrow's trading environment. Our proprietary techniques of system design and research do not guarantee that performance generated in the future will be similar to what has been generated in the past.

 

The futures markets are a leveraged medium, whereby all positions are held on margin resulting in the creation of leverage. This leverage produces the potential for significant profit and losses in trading that can be substantial. It is also important for anyone trading the futures markets to understand that even when strict discipline is used with excellent trading techniques, profitability is not assured. There are also  market conditions that are out of a trader's control that can result in significant losses.

 

Users of  all products created by ATS agree to use them at their own risk. Principals and  employees of ATS are not responsible or liable for the results generated from the markets as a result of implementing these products, regardless if those trades were implemented exactly as dictated by these trading products or not.

 

The products developed and offered by ATS are protected by copyright law as all publishers works are protected by their owners. ATS is also protected by its First Amendment right in the United States to publish such product. Any client purchasing or using such product in a domicile that requires licensing or registration in order to provide this product shall agree to do so without legal or financial re-course towards ATS. If a regulatory body should require a publisher to register in a local domain in order to solicit or disseminate their market trading products, ATS reserves the right to either register in that domicile or decline accepting any business from residents of such domain or return the amount paid for such product to those residing in that jurisdiction. All products purchased from ATS are for the exclusive and sole use of the subscriber. Subscribing to this service from ATS and using this proprietary information for others who have not paid a subscription fee to ATS is not possible or acceptable under the terms of any subscription that is purchased. If it is discovered that the proprietary content owned and distributed by ATS is re-sold or delivered to those who have not purchased such product from ATS and are guilty of such practices, they will be subject to legal prosecution on the basis of  theft and will be punished to the full extent of the law. (We have our ways of finding out these things.)

 

The United States exempts publishers of market advice from having to register with the Commodity Trading Futures Commission and the National Futures Association so long as that company is solely involved in the business of publishing such advice, which is the case with ATS. The products of ATS are published products and all performance represented should by evaluated with the following Disclaimer:
 

HYPOTHETICAL  PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. 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 ACCOUNT FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.

 

ATS has a no refund policy. Not because we don't believe in the quality of our products, but because over the many years that the principal of the company has offered market advisory products to the general public you cannot believe all of the ridiculous reasons people have requested a refund of their subscription. As a result of the long term abuse of  a refund policy we have elected to shorten the length of the subscription to a monthly subscription period. After the initial subscription expires, termination can occur at any time thereafter.  There are many types of market trading products available to the public, but it is the belief of this company that most of the product that is available for purchase does not come close to the exaggerated claims of performance that is associated with such product. We intentionally avoid such marketing practices and are only interested in servicing serious and committed individuals who are in need of a professional trading tool. We are not bringing a product that is anything less than this and expect our subscribers to understand that they need to bring a level of commitment to the markets as well.
