Terms of Use, Disclaimer and Risk Disclosure

All potential Harmonic Edge Subscribers, including free trial or guest Subscribers must read this disclaimer & terms of service in its entirety, and agree to the terms set forth before access to our web site and real time trading room is granted.

I understand and agree that I will not be entitled to any refund from Harmonic Edge for whatever reason, and that my Subscription may be terminated by Harmonic Edge in its sole discretion. I understand that I may cancel my Subscription at any time by submitting a cancellation request using the Subscriber change form located online at:


I understand that all subscription terms renew automatically and I must provide Harmonic Edge with five (5) business days notice to terminate my Subscription prior to the end of my current billing period. Failure to do so will result in my account being charged for the next month or term of service (quarterly/semi-annual/annual).

Charts and commentary provided by Harmonic Edge are for educational purposes only. Any trades placed upon reliance on Harmonic Edge charts and commentary are taken at your own risk for your own account. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. While there is great potential for reward trading stocks, futures and options, there is also substantial risk of loss and you must decide your own suitability to trade. Future trading results can never be guaranteed. This is not an offer to buy or sell stock, futures, options or commodity interests.

Most trading systems are based on historical formulas which have worked in the past. However, what has happened before may or may not happen again. You can lose all your money trading stocks, futures and options and you must decide your own suitability as to whether or not to trade.  Only trade with true risk capital you can afford to lose. Only trade markets you can properly afford to trade.  Properly funded trading accounts typically perform better than those that are not. Never risk more than 2% of your account on any one trade.  Always define your risk before entering a trade and place a stop to limit your risk.

There are no guarantees or certainties in trading. Trading involves hard work, risk, discipline and the ability to follow rules and trade through any tough periods during a system’s draw downs.  If you are looking for a guarantee, trading is probably not for you. Most people lose trading. One of the reasons is that they lack discipline and are unable to be consistent. A system or methodology can help you become consistent.  Ironically, worrying about the monetary aspect of trading can contribute to and cause a trader to make trading errors.  Therefore, it is important to only trade with true risk capital.

In accordance with NASD Rule 2361 and NFA guidelines, you should consider the following points before engaging in day trading activities:


Day trading can be extremely risky. Customers should be prepared to lose all of the funds that they have in their account for day trading. They should not fund their 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.

Customers must be cautious of claims of large profits from day trading. Customers need to be wary of advertisements or other statements that emphasize the potential for large profits in day trading. Day trading can also 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, an investor must compete with professional, licensed traders employed by securities firms. An investor should have appropriate experience before engaging in day trading.

Day trading requires knowledge of a firm's operations. An investor should be familiar with a securities firm's business practices, including the operation of the firm's order execution systems, procedures, and should confirm that a firm has adequate systems capacity to permit customers to engage in day trading activities.

Day trading may result in large commissions. Day trading may require an investor to trade his or her account aggressively, and pay commissions on each trade. The total daily commissions that they pay on trades may add to losses or significantly reduce earnings.

Day trading on margin or short selling may result in losses beyond the initial investment. When customers day trade with funds borrowed from the firm or someone else, they can lose more than the funds originally placed at risk. A decline in the value of the securities that are purchased may require additional funds be paid to the firm to avoid the forced sale of those securities or other securities in an investors account. Short selling as part of a day trading strategy also may lead to extraordinary losses, because stocks and/or futures may have to be purchased at a very high price in order to cover a short position.

I understand that the Harmonic Edge service is provided for 48 weeks per year with one week off each quarter for rest, recreation and special projects. If a week off is not scheduled for a quarter that week will be taken off in a subsequent quarter.

I understand that in the event I cancel my subscription prior to my monthly subscription being used up, I am not entitled to any credits for my unused subscription term.

Doing so will constitute a theft of service and I understand that I will be subject to applicable laws and prosecution.

Reactivation of a canceled Subscription is based on the sole discretion of Harmonic Edge and should a subscription reactivation be turned down, Harmonic Edge is under no obligation to provide reasoning for such denial.

(Subscription may hereinafter be referred to as "I," "MY," "ME," "YOUR," "YOU") I understand and agree that any and all trading decisions are made by ME alone. I accept all responsibility for transactions that occur in MY account with MY broker of choice. Due to the risk of loss which can be substantial when buying or selling stocks and futures, YOU should carefully consider YOUR financial condition as to whether trading stocks and/or futures is in YOUR best interest. I understand that when I buy or sell stocks and/or futures, I can incur a loss of some if not all (100%) of MY capital, cash and/or assets I may have pledged to buy stocks and/or futures, and any additional funds that I may have deposited with MY broker of choice to establish or maintain MY position. If the market moves against MY position, I understand that I may be called upon by MY broker to deposit a substantial amount of additional margin funds, on short notice, in order to maintain MY position. If I do not provide the required funds within the prescribed time, I understand MY position may be liquidated by MY broker at a loss, and I will be liable for any resulting deficit in MY account.

I understand that Harmonic Edge is not obligated or responsible for any trading activities between ME and MY broker of choice in MY trading account. I understand there may be times when the market turns against ME or under certain market conditions, it may become difficult, if not sometimes impossible, for ME to liquidate a position, and I take full responsibility should this occur. I understand and agree that, should I buy or sell stocks and/or futures discussed or mentioned in the chat room/Trading Pit, I may experience a profit and I may experience a loss.

I agree not to hold Harmonic Edge responsible for MY orders placed, MY orders filled, MY stocks and/or futures sold, MY stocks and/or futures bought, MY profits made, or MY losses incurred.

I agree and understand that this DISCLAIMER is not implying that these are the only risks involved in trading stocks and/or futures, and it is MY sole responsibility to know, investigate, research, and assume all other risks associated with trading stocks and/or futures. I understand that results anticipated should not be based on past performance of stocks and/or futures discussed in the chat room/Trading Pit.

Harmonic Edge strongly recommends all subscribers practice Paper Trading (trading without using actual cash, and tracking the prices you would be buying and selling a stock and/or futures without actually spending or risking capital) until YOU have found a system with which YOU are comfortable. Keep in mind that Paper Trading is substantially different than actually trading. When Paper Trading, YOU will not experience actual market conditions such as but not limited to: fast moving market, inability to have an order filled, market turns against YOU, slippage, etc. When Paper Trading, you should deduct approximately 20 - 40% of YOUR profit for a more realistic Paper Trading profit figure. This percentage is not guaranteed to be the actual result and should not be used to guarantee what YOUR profit will be when actually trading with YOUR capital. The risk of trading is always YOUR responsibility. Any trading strategies YOU undertake by utilizing the web site or chat room/Trading Pit will expose you to risk.
