2.2 I confirm that I have made my own investigations and conducted research into the Strategy Provider sufficient to make an informed investment decision.


2.3 Advanced Markets has not recommended the Strategy Provider to me and I chose the Strategy Provider at my own risk.


2.4 Advanced Markets will not be held liable or responsible for performance or trading losses incurred in my Account as a result of my use of the Strategy Provider.


2.5 Advanced Markets may act upon the authority given by me until I revoke this authority. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE UNFOLLOWING OF THE STRATEGY PROVIDER IS NOT AUTOMATIC AND WILL REQUIRE PRIOR APPROVAL BY ADVANCED MARKETS, AND THAT THE UNFOLLOWING WILL BECOME EFFECTIVE UPON SUCH APPROVAL IS GRANTED WHERE THE PERFORMANCE FEES WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM MY ACCOUNT. I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ADVANCED MARKETS WILL EXERCISE REASONABLE ENDEAVOURS TO APPROVE THE UNFOLLOWING WITHIN A 48-HOUR TIMEFRAME.


2.6 I understand that I am permitted to follow one Strategy Provider per Account and that the following will be able to commence after I have all open and/or pending positions closed.


2.7 I understand that in the event that there are insufficient funds in my Account to support the copying of a trade of the Strategy Provider, then the specific position will not be opened.


2.8 Advanced Markets cannot guarantee that an order opened on the Strategy Provider’s account will be executed at the same price as the order on my Account.


2.9 An order placed by the Strategy Provider will typically be executed at the same time on my Account. However, I understand that if by the time the order is executed on my Account the price of an order has moved considerably far from the price in which the Strategy Provider has opened the order due to high market volatility, Advanced Markets reserves the right to not open the relevant order on my Account.


2.10 I understand that if by the time the order is about to be executed on my Account the order has been already closed by the Strategy Provider, then the order will not be executed on my Account.


2.11 If the price of an order has moved considerably far from the price in which the Strategy Provider has chosen to close the trade, Advanced Markets reserves the right to close the trade on the available market price at the time of closure.


2.12 Advanced Markets reserves the right to reject an order to be opened in my Account if the volume restriction on a given financial instrument is not met.


2.13 The costs associated with the financial instruments offered by Advanced Markets which apply in my Account might differ from the costs which apply on the Strategy Provider’s account, depending on the type of trading account that we each have opened, and this might have a different outcome on a particular trade or the overall strategy.


2.14 The trades conducted by the Strategy Provider may involve amounts greatly different from the amounts allocated by me to each transaction copying the Strategy Provider’s activity. I understand that his may itself cause a significantly different result compared to the Strategy Provider’s profits or losses even if the remaining characteristics of my positions are the same as the ones of the Strategy Provider.


2.15 I shall take into consideration the risks associated with the execution of orders and be responsible for assessing the strategy of the Strategy Provider and take the necessary actions for my copied trades. Advanced Markets shall not be liable for any losses resulting from the execution of orders and my failure to assess the Strategy Provider’s strategy.


2.16 I acknowledge that the Strategy Provider may not have any professional certifications or titles with relation to the financial markets.
