Website Terms of Use



Thanks for visiting. Welcome! It's great to know you got here because there’s some really important stuff you need to read and get to know while you are here.

So take a few minutes and just see what terms of use are applicable, and what either of us are, or are not, responsible for.
First and foremost, its important that you know and understand that Trading any financial market involves risk. Please be aware then that The contents of this website are neither a solicitation nor an offer to Buy/Sell any financial market.

Its also really; really important that you understand that The contents of the website, newsletters and emails you'll receive and any member's area, are for general information and educational purposes only.

So basically then, just so we are clear, by using this website or using/viewing any part of this website you agree to the terms of this agreement.

Heres a mouthfull, its legal talk but is pretty clear, hold your breath and give it the once over:
"Trading carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts."
You may be wondering, if you've seen an testimonial on our site, just what was the deal to have them put up, if any. Well, we have nothing to hide and let's you a brief rundown of how this happens:

How We Gather Testimonials:
We receive unsolicited testimonials periodically. Once we receive the testimonial we email the individual and ask if we have their permission to add and use their testimonial.

Unless we say otherwise, we have no connection to the person giving the testimonial. Where we do have a material connection to the person we will clearly state the connection.

Please remember that any testimonials on the site are not indicative of future performance or success. We are not implying that these results can be generally expected or achieved by anyone. In fact its important to realise that there is a substantial risk of loss associated with trading Forex. We'll tell you more somewhere below this.

By the way, in the interest of full disclosure, because we have nothing to hide :) we can not say that these testimonials are representative of all users and at all times for any user. People who send testimonials tend to be happy with the product at the time they sent the testimonial but their experience may change over time.
We try to be as transparent as possible at all times.

We would never mean to say or pretend that any account or trader will or is likely to achieve profits or loses similar to those discussed on this website. Each person may have different results. In fact its pretty certain they and you will not have similar results and there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. So the saying "Past performance is not indicative of future results" really holds true here.

One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. Also, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk and that’s why 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 the trading losses are material points, which can also adversely affect trading results. There are a lot of other factors related to the market 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.

Although we make every attempt to assure accuracy, we do not give any express or implied warranty as to it's accuracy. What we are saying here is, that we do not accept any liability for any error or omission. You'll see we have examples posted now and again. These are for illustrative purposes only so please do not be construe them as investment advice or strategy.
We would love for you to subscribe to our mailing list, use the website or becoming a member. Remember that by doing any of these you will be deemed to have accepted all the terms of this page in full.

Here's another thing and its very important to know: Old Tree Publishing (Pty) Ltd, in association with Mark McRae, the website and its representatives do not and can not give investment advice or invite customers to engage in investments through this website.

It follows then also that we and anybody else who helped us create, produce, or deliver the site are not liable for any damages you suffer if and when and however you use it. Here's another mouthful that’s worth reading out load and remembering:
