Terms & Conditions

By accessing and using this website or any website of Argo Futures Group Inc. or its affiliates (“the websites”), you agree to the terms of use set forth below. As used herein, “you” and “your” refer to each user of this website or, as the context requires, any corporation, partnership, limited liability company, or other similar legal entity (each, an “Entity”) on whose behalf a user is granted access to this website. If you are using this website on behalf of an Entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept this agreement on behalf of such Entity.

1. Jurisdiction

The information provided on the website is not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or that would subject Argo Futures Group Inc. or our affiliates (“we” or “us”) to any regulation under, or registration requirement within, such jurisdiction or country. Products or services described herein may not be available in all jurisdictions.

2. License Grant

Subject to your compliance with these Terms of Use, we hereby grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license, without the right to sublicense, to access and view the materials on the websites and print copies thereof solely for your own individual, non-commercial use and internal business purposes.

3. Non-Solicitation

Neither the information nor any opinion contained in the websites constitutes a solicitation or offer by us to buy or to sell any securities, futures, options, or other financial instruments or to provide any investment advice or service.

4. Suitability of Investment

We do not provide advice concerning the suitability or value of any particular investment in securities, futures, or options or regarding any investment strategy, nor do we endorse or recommend the products or the securities of companies that manufacture products whose advertisements may appear on our websites.

5. Order Capacity

System response times may vary due to a variety of factors, including trading volumes, market conditions, and system performance.

6. Technological Failures

We shall not be liable in any way for any inaccuracy, error, or delay in or omission of any information; or the transmission or delivery of any information; or for any loss or damage arising from or occasioned by any such inaccuracy, error, delay, or omission; or for any non-performance or interruption of information due to any act or omission; or for any force majeure (i.e., flood, extraordinary weather condition, earthquake, or other act of God; fire; war; insurrection; riot; labor dispute; accident; action of government; communications failure; power failure; or equipment or software malfunction) or any other cause beyond our reasonable control.

7. Trading

Trading securities, futures, and options is a volatile and complex business that involves risk of loss. The valuation of such instruments may fluctuate and, as a result, you may incur significant losses. Before you trade, you should consider your financial experience, goals, and financial resources and know how much you can afford to lose above and beyond your initial investment. Stock prices can be extremely volatile, especially “hot” technology and Internet stocks. Futures markets are also extremely volatile and are also highly leveraged.

8. Risks of Margin Trading

f you decide to trade securities on margin, you should understand that there are risks involved. A sudden drop in the price of an instrument (i.e., stock or option) could cause you to receive a margin call. Because of the nature of their markets, futures and options are always traded on margin, and you can receive a margin call on any significant price change, up or down. In such case, you would be required to deposit additional collateral into your account. If you do not respond in a timely manner, the existing collateral in your account could be sold or, in the case of futures, your positions liquidated, in order to cover the call, and you would be responsible for any losses to your account. To reduce this risk, do not overextend yourself. Maintain account equity well above the minimum margin maintenance and variation requirements, and be aware that these requirements can change at any time.

9. Tax Issues

The investment services and products mentioned in the websites may often have tax consequences; therefore, it is important to bear in mind that we do not provide tax advice. The levels and bases of taxation can change. Your tax affairs are your own responsibility, and you should consult your own attorneys or other tax advisors in order to understand the tax consequences of any products and services mentioned on these websites.
