Terms of Service

Introduction
The following are the terms under which you are granted the continued use of the resources on this site. If you do not agree to these conditions then you should not continue to access this site.

Education, Not Recommendations
Classical Trading Patterns sometimes publishes information that is educational in nature and designed to contribute to your overall understanding of various types of technical analysis and how we apply this information to the financial markets.We are in no way recommending the purchase, sale or short sale of any securities, options, futures or other financial instruments.Trading of stocks, options, and futures may not be suitable for everyone and may involve the risk of losing part of your money, all of your money, or in the case of futures, more than all of your money.

We at Classical Trading Patterns are not Financial Advisors or Registered Analysts. We do not offer our various model portfolios as trading recommendations for you to copy. These models represent our own accounts and/or opinions and are intended to teach our style of short-term trading. For example, if technology stocks happen to be selling off day after day, members can review our newsletters and portfolios and actions taken in the live trading rooms (if any) to see what we are thinking or doing, and how we are handling that type of situation.It is up to you to make your own decisions as what you want to do with your own portfolio.

We do not claim to have a special insight into the markets that prevent us from making mistakes. We do make mistakes. However, we believe our successes more than make up for our mistakes, and will continue to offer our education until proven otherwise. Observe our mistakes and utilize these lessons in your own trading programs.

Trading of stocks, and especially options and futures, may not be suitable for everyone. Though there are large potential rewards, short-term trading is very risky, especially when your accounts are fully margined. There is certainly a chance in which you can lose all of your money.If you are trading futures, there is a chance that your account can go negative, and that you will end up owing money to your broker.In addition, prior to buying or selling a stock, option, or futures contract, an investor will need a broker, and they must meet suitability requirements in order to trade these specific instruments..

By accepting this disclaimer you are acknowledging the risks involved in trading the stock, options, and futures markets and are also acknowledging that you, the subscriber, and not Classical Trading Patterns are solely responsible for any losses, financial or otherwise, as a result of using this service. Classical Trading Patterns shall under no circumstances be liable for any lost profits, lost opportunities, misstatements, or errors contained within these pages. You also agree that Classical Trading Patterns will not be held liable for data accuracy, server problems, or any special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, any or all of the materials published on our Website. You agree to hold Classical Trading Patterns harmless for any act resulting directly or indirectly from this site, its data, content, materials, associated pages and documents.

Employees of Classical Trading Patterns may or may not have positions in the educational picks posted to the site through its newsletters or in the trading rooms. In addition, 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 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, including the ability to withstand losses. Finally, past performance is in no way indicative of future results.

All Seminar and Software sales are final.  There is no refund issued if you cannot attend a seminar.  However, in the event you do not attend a seminar, you will be able to use the money as a credit towards future seminars or other products and services.  If you do not wish to use the credit towards future purchases, there is a 50% cancellation fee that will be processed and deducted from your refund. All indicator sales are final with no refund.

Purchase agreement/End User License Agreement
Purchaser of any Classical Trading Patterns course, DVD, CD ROM, software, book, or other product hereby agrees that they are the End User and may not rent, resell, lease nor otherwise resell neither the content nor the video they have purchased in any manner, by any venue.  All sales are final for all products.  Copyable media, including DVDs, CD-ROMs and other media may not be returned for a refund, but we will replace any defective media at no cost to the purchaser (contact us at for an RMA number using our Contact Link on the website).  Purchaser may not resell this or any Classical Trading Patterns product via eBay, any other online auction site, nor any online classified forum nor any other resale venue of any kind.

By signing up for any trials offered, your credit card will automatically be charged the stated fee - usually $100.00. Each member is only allowed one trial of our services. Once your trial has expired, if you do not wish to continue using our services, it is your responsibility to email us or call us and let us know that you would like to cancel or visit the My Account section in the member's area and cancel your account. You must cancel the day before your renewal to escape any charges placed on your account. If you cancel the day of your renewal you will need to contact us in order to void the transaction but you will see it will automatically deduct on the date of your renewal. We honor all cancellation requests. If you choose to continue, payment for the appropriate services will be made by automatic credit card debit. Once you are an active member, your account will be renewed automatically each month. Unless and until this agreement is canceled by email or in your My Account member's area, you are authorizing Classical Trading Patterns to charge your credit card to pay for the ongoing cost of membership. We absolutely and positively honor all cancellation requests. There are no contracts or time obligations associated with our service.

Subscriptions may be canceled at any time by either party. These cancellations must be sent via email or through the My Account section in the member's area. When termination is requested by a subscriber, subscription fees are not refunded. Rather, the current subscription will run its course to the end of the current billing cycle, at which point the subscription would then become inactive and the account canceled. Cancellation of service is not official until subscriber receives an email confirmation from Classical Trading Patterns and if your request is not answered in 3 business days, you will need to call us and confirm cancellation.

If you find yourself interested in our trading styles, remember that it is important to diversify your investments and not throw all of your money into one basket or technique. If you do copy our buys and sells, you are doing so at your own risk. We're not recommending that anyone copy us, and believe that all investors should make their own decisions. We are here to teach by example, through our successes and mistakes.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us and our affiliates harmless from any and all claims, liabilities, costs and expenses arising in any way from your use of any services provided by Classical Trading Patterns.
