The Company offers an indicator package and optional support services designed to educate Traders about various trading techniques to be utilized in trading of chartable financial instruments. This service is intended for educational purposes only, considered to always be done in a simulation environment. By subscribing or purchasing any products or services, Trader enters into this agreement even if he/she may have already entered into a similar one previously.

Now THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements set forth below, Company and Trader agree as follows:
The Company agrees to provide the Trader with instruction in trading via classes to be conducted online via web conferences, with no predefined schedule. In most cases, these classes will be recorded and posted in the Member Area training section of the website after the conference has concluded, for those that are unable to attend the live sessions. TFT will also allow the Trader access to the restricted Members Area of the website, per the maximum security settings provide by WordPress website software. This website software type could change at any time and if so will always be set to the “maximum security setting” of the software that is used at that time. The Company shall provide the Trader with materials as the Company deems necessary to instruct and inform the Trader, and allow the Trader to participate in trading simulations. The Trader understands that any trading sessions or training material contained within TFT's website will not provide advice or counsel in the form of trading recommendations or buy/sell advice.

DISCLOSURE FOR HYPOTHETICALS
The Trend Following Trades Methodology is not 100% mechanical. Individual results will vary. Even though, live trading sessions or training material on the Company's website may be traded in a live account, all trades are understood as simulated trades. Also, hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades may not have actually have under- or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity, etc.
No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown in any trading sessions or training material contained in the Company's website.
In addition, hypothetical or simulated 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 (and incur account draw downs) or adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are important issues which may also adversely affect actual trading results. Real time, real money emotional factors have also not been taken into account in a simulation environment.
There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program, method or system, which cannot be completely taken into consideration with hypothetical performance results and will affect trading results and your profits and losses.
In the event any breach or threatened breach or intended breach of this Agreement by the Trader, the Company, in addition to any other rights or remedies available to it at law or in equity, shall be entitled to preliminary or final injunctions, enjoining and restraining such breach or threatened breach or intended breach from any state or federal court in the United States of America. If located outside of the United States, TFT will act in “good faith” following the laws of County of Bucks, State of PA, and Country of the United States. This is not an obligation of TFT, just a “good faith” gesture. Any litigation must be filed and executed in the State of Pennsylvania, County of Bucks.
