R&D Trading Technologies

R&D Disclaimer

R&D Trading Technologies, LLC. is a quantitative trading research consulting firm serving institutional sell side and buy side clients only. R&D is NOT a Commodity Trading Advisor ("CTA"), nor holding itself out as such, nor serving retail clients in any capacity. Our business is licensing research and intellectual property based tools to institutional clients in the business of actively trading and/or managing either proprietary or buy side client capital, or both.

The specific group of models and associated performance metrics presented on this site are a hypothetical example of results which might have been reasonably achieved historically in the context of a professionally managed portfolio. The performance metrics are presented as accurately as possible and are calculated using the most sophisticated software simulation techniques currently available, including allowances for reasonable commissions and exchange fees, and maximum position sizing relative to typical market liquidity limitations. R&D Trading Technologies, LLC. takes no responsibility for the ultimate success or failure of the research or models we develop since they are provided as non-automated discretionary tools to professionals qualified to manage them. Qualified professionals using our tools are ultimately responsible for evaluating suitability and risk relative to the manner in which they are employed.

Managers of non-proprietary capital are required to disclose the following regarding the limitations of hypothetical performance under Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC") rules to prospective clients. Although R&D Trading Technologies, LLC. does not manage non-proprietary capital, nor license research or tools to retail clients, we choose to include it here to emphasize the potential risks associated with investing capital in entities employing the use of trading models tested in a simulated environment.

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.

In addition to the trappings of hypothetical performance, there are inherent risks in trading futures and/or commodities in any capacity. Again, R&D Trading Technologies, LLC. is not a Commodity Trading Advisor ("CTA"), nor holding itself out as such. Though we are not required to provide the following risk disclosure as an institution to institution based consulting firm, we do so in good faith to help educate any visitor who happens to find our site.

The risk of loss in trading commodities can be substantial. you should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains. In some cases, managed commodity accounts are subject to substantial charges for management and advisory fees. It may be necessary for those accounts that are subject to these charges to make substantial trading profits to avoid depletion or exhaustion of their assets. The disclosure document contains a complete description of the principal risk factors and each fee to be charged to your account by the Commodity Trading Advisor ("CTA").

The regulations of the CFTC require that prospective clients of a "CTA" receive a disclosure document at or prior to the time an advisory agreement is delivered and that certain risk factors be highlighted. This brief statement cannot disclose all of the risks and other significant aspects of the commodity markets. Therefore, you should study the disclosure document carefully to determine whether such trading is appropriate for you in light of your financial condition. You are encouraged to request delivery of a hard copy of the disclosure document, which will be provided to you at no cost. The CFTC has not passed upon the merits of participating in this trading program nor on the adequacy or accuracy of the disclosure document. Other disclosure statements are required to be provided to you before a commodity account may be opened for you.
