Bleah, legal stuff. Not fun, but has to be addressed. First and foremost:
Mercenary Trader was designed by traders, for traders. As such, we take pride in the quality of our work and seek to bring you the most helpful and relevant information possible.
However, readers should still be aware of the potential for inaccurate or faulty information, and further note the standard conflicts of interest involved when discussing and participating in markets simultaneously.
Our information is not guaranteed to be correct. In the game of trading, professionals must act on incomplete or sometimes faulty information. Furthermore, despite our consistent best efforts, we may occasionally disseminate inaccurate or faulty information. It’s just the nature of the game…
Mercenary Trader thus does NOT guarantee any of the information on this site (either information provided by the authors OR comments provided by readers) to be accurate. Before making any investment decision, you should do your own due diligence to ensure that you are acting on the best available information and, if necessary, consult with a qualified and licensed investment adviser.
As aggressive traders, we are actively engaged in trading the markets on a routine basis. This means that, when discussing a potential long or short position in XYZ security, you should assume we are quite possibly actively engaged in trading that security. You should further assume, however, that the nature of our positioning (long, short or flat) at the time of publishing is not guaranteed.
Because of the dynamic nature of the Mercenary trading style, you should further assume that our opinions, and thus our positioning, can change very quickly. One minute we might be bullish on a particular industry or security. The next minute we may very well shift or reverse our opinion.
Mercenary Trader has no obligation to inform readers of any shift of opinion or adjustment in trading activity, regardless as to whether it conforms with, or stands in direct opposition to, previously featured commentary.
The information flow provided via the Mercenary Trading Desk is designed to offer visibility into our day-to-day and even minute-by-minute trading decision process, but is not guaranteed to be accurate or timely.
System outages, technical difficulties, trader memory lapse, excessively volatile markets, or any number of other unforeseen hindrances may restrict, limit, or otherwise impair our ability to provide accurate information under compromised circumstances. We offer no guarantee and assume no liability for failing to discuss trade or position updates in a timely manner.
Basically, we’re all big boys (and girls) here, and, as prudent market participants, we should all take individual responsibility for our own trading and investing results. Mercenary Trader is thus not liable for losses or damages resulting from inaccurate or poorly timed information, impacts of undisclosed trading activity, or the commentary / trading activity of any readers or guest contributors on this site.
