USE OF TESTIMONIALS – RESULTS PRESENTED ARE NOT TYPICAL OR VERIFIED
TTG’s Company Sites and Materials may contain information regarding the trading performance of TTG owners or employees, and/or testimonials of non-employees depicting profitability that is believed to be true based on the representations of the persons voluntarily providing the testimonials. However, subscribers’ trading results have NOT been tracked or verified and past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results, and the results presented are NOT TYPICAL. Actual results will vary widely given a variety of factors such as experience, skill, risk mitigation practices, market dynamics, and the amount of capital deployed. Investing in securities is speculative and carries a high degree of risk; you may lose some, all, or possibly more than your original investment.
TTG respects and follows 16 C.F.R. Part 255 and the Federal Trade Commission’s Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising. As explained above, TTG does not track the results of our current or past subscribers. Available research data suggests, however, that most day traders are not profitable:
For example, a 2019 study by Fernando Chague, Rodrigo De-Losso, and Bruno Giovannetti, titled “Day trading for a living?” (http://www.repec.eae.fea.usp.br/documentos/Chague_Losso_Giovannetti_47WP.pdf), concluded that 97% of day traders who traded at least 300 days between 2013 and 2015 in the Brazilian equity futures market (the third largest volume in the world) lost money, 0.4% earned more than $54 per day, and the top individual earned only $310 per day with great risk.
Similarly, a research paper published in 2017 entitled “Do Day Traders Rationally Learn About Their Ability?” by professors from the University of California (Davis), Peking University, and the University of California (Berkeley) (https://faculty.haas.berkeley.edu/odean/papers/Day%20Traders/Day%20Trading%20and%20Learning%20110217.pdf) evaluated 3.7 billion trades from the Taiwan Stock Exchange between 1992 and 2006, and found that only 9.81% of day trading volume was generated by predictably profitable traders and that these predictably profitable traders constitute less than 3% of all day traders on an average day.
And a 2013 paper by many of the same professors from the University of California and Peking University, titled “The cross-section of speculator skill: Evidence from day trading” (https://faculty.haas.berkeley.edu/odean/papers/Day%20Traders/The%20Cross-Section%20of%20Speculator%20Skill.pdf), likewise concludes that “[l]ess than 1% of the day trader population is able to predictably and reliably earn positive abnormal results net of fees.”
These studies highlight the difficulty in determining a definitive success rate or even reliable inferences about what “generally expected results” are for day traders. At a minimum, these studies indicate that at least 50% of day traders will not be profitable. Day trading is a high-risk activity, and you could lose some, all, or even more than your investment. Any trade or investment you make is at your own risk, and TTG urges you to consult with a qualified advisor prior to making any such trade or investment.
