Gecko Software Risk Disclosure
High Risk Investments
Trading Stocks, Futures, Foreign Exchange (Forex), or Options on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade any of these markets you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that your losses can exceed deposits and therefore you should not invest money you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading these markets, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
Internet Trading Risks
There are risks associated with utilizing an Internet-based deal execution trading system including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connection. Since Gecko Software and any partners do not control signal power, its reception or routing via Internet, configuration of your equipment or reliability of its connection, we cannot be responsible for communication failures, distortions or delays when trading via the Internet. Our partners, employ back-up systems and contingency plans to minimize the possibility of system failure, and trading via telephone to the clearing firm is an additional option if such an event occurs.

Market Risks and Online Trading
The trading program(s) provide sophisticated order entry and tracking of orders. All stop-loss, limit and entry orders are generally deemed reliable against slippage, but slippage may still occur based on market conditions and liquidity. Trading on-line, no matter how convenient or efficient does not necessarily reduce risks associated with stocks, futures, forex, or options trading. All quotes and trades are subject to the terms and conditions of the End-User License Agreement and Client Agreement.
Unique experiences and past performances are not necessarily indicative of future results! Testimonials herein are unsolicited and are non-representative of all clients; certain accounts may have worse performance than that indicated. Trading Stocks, Futures, Forex, or Options involves substantial risk and there is always the potential for loss. Your trading results may vary. Because the risk factor is high trading any leverage markets, only genuine “risk” funds should be used in such trading. If you do not have the extra capital that you can afford to lose, you should not trade. No completely “safe” trading system has ever been devised, and no one can guarantee profits or freedom from loss. Gecko Software does not pay for testimonials, most of our testimonials are unsolicited and voluntary

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.

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.ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT.
