Education, Not Recommendations:
(Last Updated March 1, 2018)
Welcome to Become A Better Trader. The becomeabettertrader.com website, the becomeabettertrader.com mobile site, and the BBT Mobile Application, are all Become A Better Trader properties. Each individually is a Become A Better Trader Property. By using any Become A Better Trader Property and the related services, software, third-party methods, and products you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
Become A Better Trader, Inc. publishes information that is educational in nature and designed to contribute to your overall understanding of various types of technical analysis and how we apply this information to the financial markets. We are in no way recommending the purchase, sale or short sale of any securities, options, futures or other financial instruments. Trading of stocks, options, futures, and currency markets may not be suitable for everyone and may involve the risk of losing part of your money, all of your money, or in the case of futures, more than all of your money. Our trades are viewable during the broadcast and profits and losses are seen during and after executions. However, we are in no way representing that similar results will be achieved by following our strategies and picks.
We at Become A Better Trader, Inc. are not Financial Advisors or Registered Analysts. We do not offer our various model portfolios as trading recommendations for you to copy. These models represent our own accounts and/or opinions and are intended to teach our style of short-term trading. For example, if the stock index futures happen to be selling off day after day, members can review our live trading room to see what we are thinking or doing, and how we are handling that type of situation. It is up to you to make your own decisions as what you want to do with your own portfolio.
We do not claim to have a special insight into the markets that prevent us from making mistakes. We do make mistakes. However, we believe our successes more than make up for our mistakes, and will continue to offer our education until proven otherwise. Observe our mistakes and utilize these lessons in your own trading programs.
Trading of stocks, options, futures, or currencies may not be suitable for everyone. Equities, Futures, Options, and Currency trading and investing have large potential for rewards, but also large potential risk. You must be aware of the risks and be willing to accept them in order to invest in the Equities, Futures, Options, and Currency markets. Absolutely do not trade with money you cannot afford to lose. Though there are large potential rewards, short-term trading is very risky, especially when your accounts are fully margined. There is certainly a chance in which you can lose all of your money. If you are trading futures, there is a chance that your account can go negative, and that you will end up owing money to your broker. In addition, prior to buying or selling a stock, option, currency, or futures contract, an investor will need a broker, and they must meet suitability requirements in order to trade these specific instruments.
*Options positions may have more than one leg for instance with spreads, condors or rolled over positions to a new month. The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results. You should carefully consider whether trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances, knowledge and financial resources. Absolutely consult your Registered Financial Advisor and your Risk Trading Plan before ever investing or trading any financial instrument!
Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Prior to buying or selling an option, investors must read a copy of the Characteristics & Risks of Standardized Options, also known as the options disclosure document (ODD). Go to http://www.optionsclearing.com/about/publications/character-risks.jsp It explains the characteristics and risks of exchange traded options. Copies of the ODD are available from your broker, from any exchange on which options are traded, by placing an order online, or by calling 1-888-OPTIONS (1-888-678-4667), or from The Options Clearing Corporation, One North Wacker Drive, Suite 500, Chicago, Illinois 60606.
Hypothetical 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 hypothetical performance results and the actual results achieved by any particular trading program.
One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. 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 hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.

While Rob and the team strive to provide services every trading day. The reality is that there will be days that we may not be able to provide service. This could be due to internet problems, weather or other acts of nature, holidays, medical and health reasons or travel that precludes us from being able to provide our very highly sought after service.
