Risk Disclosure Example: Futures trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
 
Hypothetical Performance Disclosure Example: Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described 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 the 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 of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets 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 which can adversely affect trading results.

Founded by former prop shop owner Morad Askar AKA FuturesTrader71 or FT71, Stage Five Trading takes a completely unique approach to futures brokerage. 

 

In my recent note to Anthony Giacomin, Managing Partner at Stage 5, as to why I felt comfortable recommending Stage 5 to my clients, I stated: "frankly most outfits are a different variation of the same means to an end whereas you guys are trying to do something special."

 

My relationship with Morad goes back to 2009, when I started noticing him on Twitter and StockTwits. It quickly became apparent that our values and our beliefs about certain things were very much in alignment.

 

Professionally, Morad can be credited with the significant advancement of Volume Profiling, a variation of Market Profile, in the futures industry. Then in 2011 I was his first client when he launched into offering brokerage. 

 

Stage 5 Trading offers traders access to professional level risk controls. If this was all you got from Stage 5 it alone would be worth it. At least every month I get an email from someone who recently found our site and has been "trading" with absolutely no risk controls in place. Many who have lost significant amounts of money, unnecessarily. If you are trading without a trading plan or risk controls in place, stop trading now.

 

In addition to professional level risk controls, Stage 5 offers traders a client chat room moderated by FT71 with a focus on current market conditions and areas of interest based on Volume Profile for the E-mini S&P-500, educational webinars, and the S5 Trade Analyzer, a tool designed to help traders analyze and understand the key metrics of their trades and thereby improve performance, and inspired by the same tools Morad used to measure trader performance at his prop shop.

 

If you are ready for a brokerage whose vision is "to bring a fundamental change to the trading community" and ready to work with a broker who will act as your personal advocate, contact Stage 5 at 1-312-896-9897 and ask for Managing Partner Anthony Giacomin.
