Vested Inc.

By using this website, you understand the information being presented is provided for informational and educational purposes only and agree to our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Vested, Inc. (together with its affiliates, “Vested”) relies on information from various sources believed to be reliable, including users and third parties, but cannot guarantee the accuracy and completeness of that information.

Nothing on this website should be construed as an offer, solicitation of an offer, or recommendation to buy, sell or hold any security. All investments involve risk, and the past performance of a security or financial product does not guarantee future results or returns.

DO NOT RELY ON ANY OPINIONS, PREDICTIONS, PROJECTIONS OR FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS CONTAINED HEREIN. Certain information contained in this document constitutes “forward-looking statements” that are inherently unreliable and actual events or results may differ materially from those reflected or contemplated herein. None of Vested Inc. or any of its representatives makes any assurance as to the accuracy of those predictions or forward-looking statements. Vested Inc. expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to update or revise any such forward-looking statements. The views and opinions expressed herein are those of Vested Inc as of the date hereof and are subject to change based on prevailing market and economic conditions and will not be updated or supplemented. EXTERNAL SOURCES. Certain information contained herein has been obtained from third-party sources. Although Vested Inc. believes the information from such sources to be reliable, Vested Inc. makes no representation as to its accuracy or completeness.

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 platform. 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 accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.
