HYPOTHETICAL OR SIMULATED PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE CERTAIN INHERENT LIMITATIONS. UNLIKE AN ACTUAL PERFORMANCE RECORD, SIMULATED RESULTS DO NOT REPRESENT ACTUAL TRADING.

TIPPING MONKEY, ITS PRINCIPLES AND EMPLOYEES TRADE STOCKS, MUTUAL FUNDS, FUTURES, AND OPTIONS FOR THEIR OWN ACCOUNTS AND RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CONTINUE TRADING FOR THEIR OWN ACCOUNTS.
Tipping Monkey, its principals and employees will not knowingly trade in advance of the general dissemination of trading ideas and recommendations, unless it is explicitly stated. There is, however, possibility that orders entered for these proprietary accounts may be opposite or otherwise different from the trades and positions described herein. This may occur as a result of the use of different trading systems, trading with a different degree of leverage, or testing of new trading systems, among other reasons. The results of any such trading are confidential and are not available for inspection.
OPTIONS INVOLVE SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS. OPTIONS ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL INVESTORS.
PAST PERFORMANCE DOES NOT GUARANTEE FUTURE RESULTS.
The descriptions of the various trading methods taught and used by Tipping Monkey describe the objectives of each. There are no guarantees that the stated objective will be met. Recommendations and opinions contained in our products and services reflect the judgment, as applicable, of Tipping Monkey as of the date hereof, are subject to change, and are based on certain assumptions, only some of which are noted herein. Different assumptions could yield substantially different results. You are cautioned that there is no universally accepted method for analyzing financial instruments, including options. Further, Tipping Monkey does not guarantee any results and there is no guarantee as to the liquidity of the instruments involved in its analysis. Tipping Monkey, its affiliates, and its respective officers, directors, shareholders and employees may sell or purchase, for their own account or for customers, positions in options, securities, futures contracts, or derivative instruments which may be similar or different from the positions referred to herein. Neither the information nor the recommendations and opinions expressed herein constitute an offer to sell or buy any option, security, futures contract, or derivative instrument. As a matter of policy, Tipping Monkey does not give tax, accounting, regulatory or legal advice to clients. Users should therefore consult their own advisors regarding the tax, accounting and legal implications of the recommended strategies before transactions are effected.
