By accessing the Website or using our services, you understand that:
- No content published on the Website or provided as part of our services (including in any newsletter or social media account) constitutes a recommendation that any particular investment, security, portfolio of securities, transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person. To the extent any of the content published on the Website or provided through our services may be deemed to be investment advice, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person.
- Neither Trading Dow Futures nor the personnel will advise you personally concerning the nature, potential, value or suitability of any particular investment, security, portfolio of securities, transaction, investment strategy or other matter. Accordingly, please do not attempt to contact them seeking personalized investment advice, which they cannot provide.
- The views expressed on the Website or provided through our services are the author’s own opinion. Neither Trading Dow Futures nor the personnel recommend the purchase of particular securities nor do they promise or guarantee any particular investment results.
- There is a very high degree of risk involved in trading securities and, in particular, in trading futures and options. Past results of any individual trader or trading system published by Trading Dow Futures are not indicative of future returns by that trader or system, and are not indicative of future returns which may be realized by you. Always remember that no markets are ever free of unforeseen volatility that can heavily impact your brokerage account. You can actually lose more money than you are trading with. Only trade with money that you can afford to lose.
- Your actual results may differ from performance results reported through our services (for example, on the Trading Dow Futures website) for various reasons, including, without limitation: (a) the performance results reported through our services do not reflect actual trading commissions that you may incur; (b) the performance results reported through our services do not account for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity, that may affect your results; (c) the investments highlighted may be volatile, and server delays, delivery delays, and other factors may cause the price you obtain to differ substantially from the price at the time of the relevant report; (d) at the point in time you begin subscribing to our paid services the prices of investments reported through the Website or our services may be higher than such prices at the time such investments were chosen for inclusion in the relevant report; and (e) the size and timing of your purchase or sale of a futures contract may affect the price of that futures contract.
You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Trading Dow Futures, are solely responsible for your own investment research and decisions, and the content provided on the Website or through our services is not intended to be and should not be interpreted as a promise or guarantee of any particular result. Trading Dow Futures encourages you to seek the advice of a qualified securities professional and/or tax or legal advisor before making any investment, and to investigate and fully understand any and all risks before investing.

Resolution of Disputes
You agree that these Terms and any claim, dispute, cause of action, issue, or request for relief arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Website, or our services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Nevada, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide for application of the law of another jurisdiction.
You agree that you will notify Trading Dow Futures of any Disputes by contacting us as provided under the “Contacting Trading Dow Futures” provision below. Trading Dow Futures will first try to resolve the Dispute by contacting you informally through email. If a Dispute is not resolved within 30 days after you contact us, you agree to try to resolve it with the help of a mutually agreed-upon mediator with the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (“JAMS”) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Unless otherwise precluded by law, you agree to pay your own attorneys’ fees and costs, and you and Trading Dow Futures shall each be responsible for one-half of the costs and fees associated with any mediation.
If it proves impossible to arrive at a mutually satisfactory solution through mediation, you agree to submit all Disputes to confidential, binding arbitration on an individual and purely bilateral, non-class/non-representative basis. Arbitration on an individual basis is the exclusive remedy for any claims which might otherwise be brought on a class, collective, or representative basis between you and Trading Dow Futures.
This agreement to arbitrate shall be governed by, and enforceable under, the Federal Arbitration Act 9 U.S.C. § 1 (“FAA”). Any such arbitration shall be in accordance with the Comprehensive Arbitration Procedures of the JAMS, as modified by the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures adopted by JAMS. If we cannot agree on the arbitrator after our best efforts, an arbitrator from JAMS will be selected pursuant to the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A judgment upon the award made by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Unless otherwise precluded by law, you agree to pay your own attorneys’ fees and costs, and you and Trading Dow Futures shall each be responsible for one-half of the costs and fees associated with any arbitration. You agree that if any provision of this arbitration agreement is held by an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable, or void, that provision shall be struck from the agreement to arbitrate, and the remainder of this arbitration agreement shall remain in full force and effect consistent with applicable law.
Limitation on Claims
Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any Dispute must be filed WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR after the occurrence of the event or facts giving rise to a Dispute or you waive the right to pursue any Dispute based upon such event or facts forever.
