Risk Disclosure TOT represents TurboOptionTrading.com
TurboOptionTrading.com LLC is not a registered broker-dealer, but rather works in coordination with fully licensed broker-dealers, SIPC-insured clearing firms, and private trader firms to provide licensed and non-licensed clients with access to career programs and direct access capabilities. Our firm and our network affiliates strongly recommend that all clients fully read and acknowledge all SEC risk disclosure statements available on our site and our affiliate broker-dealer websites prior to engaging in any live investment activity, and acquire a solid understanding of the risks inherent in all types of stock and option trading.
As a provider of network trading products and services, TurboOptionTrading.com, LLC (“TOT” herein) believes strongly that traders must be aware of all risks inherent in active trading. The following risk disclosure is provided by TOT pertaining to active trading and “day trading” activities with any of our affiliate broker-dealers. For additional information on all SEC disclosures, please visit http://www.sec.gov/.
You should consider the following points before engaging in day trading activities. For purposes of this notice, “day trading” means the transmission by you of multiple intraday electronic orders to effect both purchase and sale transactions in the same security or securities.
Day trading is extremely risky. You should be prepared to lose all of the funds that you use for day trading. Therefore, TOT recommends that you not fund day trading activities with retirement savings, student loans, second mortgages, emergency funds, funds set aside for purposes such as education or home ownership, or funds required for current income to meet your living expenses since you could lose all such funds in day trading.
Be cautious of claims of large profits from day trading. You should be wary of advertisements or other statements that emphasize the potential for large profits in day trading. TOT reiterates that day trading can lead to large and immediate financial losses.
Day trading requires knowledge of securities markets. Day trading requires in-depth knowledge of the securities markets and trading techniques and strategies. In attempting to profit through day trading, you must compete with professional, licensed traders employed by securities firms. You should have appropriate experience before engaging in day trading.
Day trading requires knowledge of the company’s operations. You should be familiar with each securities firm’s business practices, including the operation of the firm’s order execution systems and procedures. You should confirm that the firm has adequate systems capacity to permit customers to engage in day trading activities.
Day trading may result in your paying large commissions. Day trading may require you to trade your account aggressively, and you may pay commissions on each trade. The total daily commissions that you pay on your trades may add to your losses or significantly reduce your earnings.
Day trading on margin or short selling may result in losses beyond your initial investment .When you day trade with funds borrowed from a firm or someone else, you can lose more than the funds you originally placed at risk. A decline in the value of the securities that are purchased may require you to provide additional funds to the firm to avoid the forced sale of those securities or other securities in your account. Short selling as part of your day trading strategy also increases the risk of extraordinary losses because you may have to purchase a stock at a very high price in order to cover a short position.
Potential Registration Requirements. Persons providing investment advice for others or managing securities accounts for others may need to register as either an “Investment Advisor” under the Investment Advisors Act of 1940 or as a “Broker” or “Dealer” under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such activities may also trigger state registration requirements.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless TOT its parent, affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, actions, suits or proceedings, as well as any and all losses, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) arising out of or accruing from any action taken by you contrary to the warning provided in this Risk Disclosure.
