  1. Scope of Service

Optionsgeeks.com is a publisher of financial news and opinions and NOT a securities broker/dealer or an investment advisor.  You acknowledge that the Service provides general opinions and analysis of options, other investment securities, and markets, but does not provide personalized investment advice.

You acknowledge that the Service is for general informational purposes only and does not constitute a recommendation that any particular investment, security, portfolio of securities, transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person.

You further agree not to contact Optionsgeeks.com by any means to attempt to seek personalized investment advice. Optionsgeeks.com and its employees and agents will not advise you personally concerning the nature, potential, value or suitability of any particular security, portfolio of investments, securities, transaction, investment strategy or other matter.

While the Service is based on sources believed to be reliable, we cannot and do not guarantee the adequacy, accuracy or completeness of any information, the suitability or profitability of any particular investment, or the potential value of any investment or informational source.

All information should be independently verified. The opinions provided by the Service should not be relied upon for purposes of transacting securities or other investments.  You are responsible for your own investment research and decisions, and may wish to consider seeking the advice of a qualified securities professional before making any investment.

Moreover, although we may make references in news or marketing materials to prior articles, reports, commentary, analysis, newsletter issues or opinions, we disclaim any obligation, implied or otherwise, to update previously published information, in whole or part.  Markets change, and previously published information and data may not be current and should not be relied upon.

To the extent the Service may involve a model portfolio or an actual “real-money” portfolio of investments upon which reporting is based, such portfolio of investments is chosen by the author in accordance with their stated investment opinion(s).  Actual performance results may differ from results reported for the portfolio for many reasons, including, without limitation:

  • model portfolio performance results may not reflect trading commissions;
  • model portfolio performance results do not account for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity, that may affect results;
  • the investments chosen for any model portfolio may be volatile, and the amount of time that it takes for trades to be accomplished may result in a substantial variance in price; and
  • the prices of investments in any model portfolio may change over time, including without limitation between the time they were first included in the model portfolio and the time that any particular user begins subscribing to the Service.
