Any discussion or mention of an ETF is not to be construed as recommendation, promotion or solicitation.

Disclosure: Complex or Leveraged Exchange-Traded Products

Complex or Leveraged Exchange-Traded Products are complicated instruments that should only be used by sophisticated investors who fully understand the terms, investment strategy, and risks associated with the products.  Learn more about the risks here: https://gdcdyn.interactivebrokers.com/Universal/servlet/Registration_v2.formSampleView?formdb=4155

Disclosure: Penny Stocks

Low priced microcap securities (also known as “Penny Stocks”) represent low priced shares of small companies typically not traded or quoted on an exchange. Prices are often not available. Investors in Penny Stocks often are unable to sell stock back to the dealer that sold them the stock. Thus, you may lose your investment. Be cautious of newly issued Penny Stocks. For additional information please review the Penny Stock Trading Risk Disclosure at https://gdcdyn.interactivebrokers.com/Universal/servlet/Registration_v2.formSampleView?formdb=9490

Disclosure: OTC Securities

An investment in an OTC security is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. Many OTC securities are relatively illiquid, or “thinly traded,” which tends to increase price volatility. Illiquid securities are often difficult for investors to buy or sell without dramatically affecting the quoted price. In some cases, the liquidation of a position in an OTC security may not be possible within a reasonable period of time.

Disclosure: Margin Trading

Trading on margin is only for sophisticated investors with high risk tolerance. You may lose more than your initial investment.
