Simulated trading programs in general are subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
The simulated portfolio returns presented here were calculated by applying The Machine''s proprietary computer model to historical market data.
All hypothetical performance returns are shown net of fees and include reinvestment of dividends and other distributions.
All hypothetical performance returns are shown net of fees that you can select in escalating increments of 0.05%, from 0.00% to 2.50%.
The impact on the hypothetical performance returns shown here would vary with the amount of fees charged.
The impact of these costs may vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of brokers used by an adviser, the size of the account or its volume transactions.
All returns also include reinvestment of dividends and other distributions.
Hypothetical returns are compared with the S&P500 Index, which is a capitalization-weighted index of 500 stocks representing all major industries.
Index results include re-investment of dividends and other distributions, and do not reflect sales charges.
These hypothetical or simulated performance results do not represent actual trading.
Since such trades have not been executed, the results may have under- or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity and unusually volatile markets.
Recent events in the financial sector have resulted, and may continue to result, in an unusually high degree of volatility in the financial markets. Both debt and equity markets, domestic and foreign, have been and continue to experience increased volatility and turmoil.
Reduced liquidity in equity, credit and fixed-income markets may adversely affect many issuers worldwide. It is uncertain whether or for how long these conditions will continue.
Differences in account size, timing of transactions, execution capabilities and market conditions prevailing at the time of
investment may cause actual results to differ from the simulated results shown.
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.
