J. Stratford Financial Trading has made every effort to ensure the reliability of any information, views or recommendations expressed in this Website. The information presented by J. Stratford Financial Trading or its related entities or affiliates consists of or is based upon information known to them or information obtained from sources external to the company, which J. Stratford Financial Trading or its related entities or affiliates believed to be accurate and reliable at the time of publication.
This information is prepared for the general information of business people, those interested in financial trading, traders and investors. The information does not take into consideration the specific needs, investment objectives or financial situations of any person. Any individual reading the information on the Website should discuss, with their financial planner or advisor, the merits of any recommendation or offer that may be presented on the Website for their own specific circumstances, and should realise that not all investments are appropriate for every individual. All information is provided in good faith and such information does not at any time have to be used or acted upon by you.
J. Stratford Financial Trading, its directors, and its related entities or affiliates have taken all possible care in conceiving any views and opinions expressed on the Website.

It is important to note that there are significant risks involved when investing directly in any market or business opportunity: it is imperative that an investor has full comprehension of their own risk profile, and you should only ever invest what you can afford to lose. You are strongly encouraged to seek the opinion of a qualified investment advisor approved by the Financial Services Authority if you have any doubts over the suitability of any information, views, recommendations or decisions to your individual situation. References to past performance are not necessarily a guide to future performance.
The value of a share or other asset may rise and fall considerably depending on what other people are prepared to pay you for the share when you decide to sell it. This price volatility will depend on many factors, including the company, market sentiment, opinions about the country the share is traded in, the prospects for the industry and many other factors. Sometimes companies go bankrupt and investors may lose the entire value of their investment in a specific share. Under certain circumstances it can become impossible for you to liquidate a position (this can happen for example when there is significant change in prices in a stock over a short time). Also, the placing of contingent orders (such as a 'stop loss') may not always protect or limit your losses to the amounts that you want, as market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You should be aware that 'back tested' systematic approaches to trading or investing can be powerful. However, any theoretical returns that are generated across a historical period are by their nature historical and probabilistic. There is no guarantee that historical returns on any particular trading system will be repeated in the future.
