AutoTrading FAQ

Q: What is AutoTrading?

A:  AutoTrading is an arrangement where you request AutoShares to process self-directed automated trade execution for your account, based on trade alerts published by third party research, investment newsletter publishers, and trade alert services you subscribe to independently of AutoShares. Using the AutoShares AutoTrade execution program, you set your account to automatically enter and exit trades in accordance with trade execution instructions you pre-determine and set for your account. This enhances your ability to execute trade alerts efficiently, even if you are unable to keep in touch with current market conditions.

AutoShares acts solely as an order processor for autotrade execution settings you have activated in your online brokerage account. It is your responsibility to set and monitor your automated trade settings and each transaction effected in your account and to decide if those transactions are appropriate for you. We strongly encourage you to closely review each trade confirmation and account statement you receive to ensure that you are comfortable with the activity you set for trade automation in your account.

Newsletter publisher autotrading users do not receive investment advisory, investment supervisory or investment management services, nor the initial or ongoing review or monitoring of the user’s individual investment portfolio or individual particular needs. Therefore, no user should assume that his/her/its use of an investment newsletter publisher/s or trade alert service/s serves as a substitute for individual personalized advice from an investment professional of the user’s choosing. Accordingly, do not attempt to contact publishers or AutoShares for guidance or for seeking personalized investment advice, which they cannot provide.

Q: What is the minimum $ account size to start AutoTrading?

A: AutoShares requires a minimum account size of $2,000 to AutoTrade.

Q: Are there risks associated with AutoTrading?

A: While there are risks associated with all investments and investment programs, there are special risks associated with AutoTrading. You should both be familiar with those risks and willing to accept them before you direct AutoShares to process trading based on trade alerts from a Newsletter publishers and trade alert services. For example, AutoTrading frequently involves short-term trading of stocks and options that are based on short-term fluctuations in the overall market, particular industries, or particular issuers. There can be no assurances that such trading will be profitable. And because you will be charged a commission on each transaction effected for your account, the costs associated with frequent short-term trading can become significant. Similarly, there are risks associated with engaging in AutoTrading using margin. You should not engage in AutoTrading unless you are willing to accept the inherent risks, which may include the loss of all the funds you have invested.
