Important Disclaimer Regarding Our Services and the Information We Provide

Please understand that HFZ is not a broker-dealer, investment advisor or registered Hedge Fund, does not owe a fiduciary duty to you, and that trading by its nature involves risk of significant loss.  HFZ relies upon the publisher's exclusion from the definition of investment adviser as provided under Section 202(a)(11) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and corresponding state securities laws. By using our Services, you acknowledge and agree to the foregoing and that any actions or forbearance from taking action based on the information we provide and the use of our Services is entirely at your own risk, for which HFZ and its Affiliates shall have no liability.
HFZ is a publisher that is not familiar with your particular needs and circumstances. HFZ is not registered as a broker-dealer, investment company or as an investment advisor with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission or with any state securities authority. We offer access to our Site on a subscription only, as described further below.

  • You understand that no Content published on this Site constitutes a recommendation that any particular investment, security, sector, portfolio of securities, tax strategy, transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person.

  • You further understand that no one in the employ of HFZ is advising you personally concerning the nature, potential, value or suitability of any particular investment, security, portfolio of securities, transaction, investment strategy, tax advice or strategy, retirement advice or strategy, or other matter. To the extent any of the Content published on the Site may be deemed to be investment advice, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person. 

  • You understand that the views expressed on the Site are the opinions of our contracted analysts and of our users. The analysts may differ from time to time in their opinions about the same securities. 

  • You understand that the owners, contracted analysts and staff have or may have, personal positions in the instruments (or similar instruments) mentioned on the Site. They agree contractually not to trade in securities inconsistent with their posts on HFZ, nor to receive compensation from or insider information on companies whose stocks they discuss on the Site

  • You understand that the risk of loss in trading securities (including, without limitation, stocks, ETFs, options and index futures) can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. You bear responsibility for your own investment research and decisions and should seek the advice of a qualified securities professional before making any investment.

  • In addition, we want everyone on HFZ to understand that markets are fluid, dynamic, non-linear systems. In order to trade such systems, one has to develop the experience necessary to navigate its complexities. Therefore, we strongly suggest that a trader takes the time to learn about finance, trading Hedge Fund Z and every type of supporting analysis BEFORE beginning to trade his or her hard-earned money.  We sometimes provide trade set-ups and alerts on the site. These are for educational and hypothetical purposes only and are not trade recommendations. The prices quoted in the alerts are based on real-time market prices as of the time stated in the alert, and not actual fills by the analyst. Actual trading could affect trading prices. We also sometimes track the performance of these set-ups and alerts. Performance table returns don’t include commission and other execution and trading costs, including taxes, that would be incurred if these were actual portfolios. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Also, our general opinion is no investor put more than 5% of their investment capital in any one trade idea and utilize stop loss orders to control risk in any  investment.

  • You understand that performance data is supplied by sources believed to be reliable, that the calculations therein are made using such data, and that such calculations are not guaranteed by these sources, the information providers, or any other person or entity, and may not be complete.

Miscellaneous Disclosures

Investing in the financial markets can involve considerable risk. Past performance is not necessarily an indication of future performance.  Hypothetical performance results and past 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 past and hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program.  One of the limitations of past and hypothetical performance results is they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight.  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 past performance results and all of which can adversely affect present and future trading results. The information included in Hedge Fund Z is prepared for educational purposes and is not a solicitation, or an offer to buy or sell any security or use any particular system.  Hedge Fund Z is a financial blog providing opinions and opinions only based on what we ourselves are doing.  Our trade alerts, for example, is merely an insight into the trades we ourselves are placing. Information is based on historical research using data believed to be reliable, but there is no guarantee as to its accuracy.  Hedge Fund Z does not represent themselves as acting in the position of an investment adviser or investment manager for funds that are not under their direct control and fiduciary responsibility.  Hedge Fund Z will not provide you with personally tailored advice concerning the nature, potential, value or suitability of any particular security, portfolio or securities, transaction, investment strategy or other matter.
