Terms of Use

All information provided by Barchart.com, Inc. (“Barchart”) and its affiliates on www.barchart.com/trader or through the Barchart Trader service (“Service) is owned by or licensed to Barchart and its affiliates.

In no event shall any user publish, retransmit, redistribute or otherwise reproduce any Barchart information in any format to anyone, and no user shall use any Barchart information in or in connection with any business or commercial enterprise, including, without limitation, any securities, investment, accounting, banking, legal or media business or enterprise, without the express written consent of Barchart.

Neither Barchart nor its affiliates make any express or implied warranties (including, without limitation, any warranty or merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or use) regarding the information on this website. The Barchart information is provided to the users "as is." Neither Barchart nor its affiliates will be liable to any user or anyone else for any interruption, inaccuracy, error or omission, regardless of cause, in the Barchart information or for any damages (whether direct or indirect, consequential, punitive or exemplary).

You agree to indemnify and hold Barchart and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, partners and licensors harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of this website or your violation of any rights of another. 

Barchart cannot and does not represent or guarantee that any of the information available through the Service or on this website is accurate, reliable, current, complete or appropriate for your needs. Various information available through the Service or on this website may be specially obtained by Barchart from professional businesses or organizations, such as exchanges, news providers, market data providers and other content providers (e.g., the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, New York Mercantile Exchange and Dow Jones), who are believed to be sources of reliable information (collectively, the “Data Providers”).  Nevertheless, due to various factors — including the inherent possibility of human and mechanical error — the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, results obtained from use, and correct sequencing of information available through the Service and website are not and cannot be guaranteed by Barchart.

Decisions to buy, sell, hold or trade in securities, commodities and other investments involve risk and are best made based on the advice of qualified financial professionals. Any trading in securities or other investments involves a risk of substantial losses. The practice of “Day Trading” involves particularly high risks and can cause you to lose substantial sums of money. Before undertaking any trading program, you should consult a qualified financial professional. Please consider carefully whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition and ability to bear financial risks.  Under no circumstances shall we be liable for any loss or damage you or anyone else incurs as a result of any trading or investment activity that you or anyone else engages in based on any information or material you receive through Barchart or our Service.

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are mentioned below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program.

One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk and 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 numerous 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.

You accept responsibility for the confidentiality and use of any user name and email address that you may register for your access to and use of the Service. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Barchart of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. Barchart cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply.
