Risk information

The contents of our web pages were prepared with the greatest care.  However, QTrade does not assume responsibility or provide a guarantee of any kind and expressly disclaims to the fullest extent permitted by law any liability for correctness, accuracy, completeness, marketability, adherence to deadlines, fitness or proper sequence for any special purpose in connection with the website, and all information contained therein (or of the results obtained from the use thereof or the decisions taken in reliance thereupon). 

Delays, omissions and inaccuracies may occur.  QTrade can change the content of the website or discontinue the provision of such content at any time.  Unless stated otherwise, all information and opinions presented on the website are solely those of QTrade.   All information provided with a date is only published on the corresponding date. No obligation is assumed for the updating or supplementation of this type of information.  The website can contain advisory services or information of third parties or links to these services or information. QTrade assumes no responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, currentness or reliability of information that is not checked and updated. 

Whoever uses this information does so at his or her own risk. Users of the website assume the full risk of accessing or using the website.    QTrade does not assume any liability towards the user for direct or indirect damages, including but not limited to loss of profits, capital losses, or other one-time or repeated damages arising from the use of or inability to use or access the website and its parts.

As a service provider we are responsible under general law for our own content on these pages according to § 6 Section 1 MDStV (State Contract for Media Services) and § 8 Section 1 TDG (Telephone Service Data Protection Act).  However, service providers are not obligated to monitor the third-party information transmitted or stored by them or to search for circumstances indicating illegal activity.   Obligations under general law to remove or block the use of information remain unaffected by this stipulation.  However, liability in this respect can only be assumed from the moment that knowledge of a specific breach of law is obtained  When knowledge of corresponding breaches of law is obtained, we shall remove these contents immediately. 

All information contained on this website is provided for information purposes only and does not establish liability.  This information should not be understood as an invitation to enter into a deal or a transaction and is not a call for replication, not even a tacit one.   All recourse claims are excluded.   Before any deal is entered into by an investor he should check whether it is appropriate in view of his personal and financial circumstances.  

Trading with the products offered by QTrade (e.g. CFDs, currencies, futures and warrants) entails significant risk for your capital and is not suited to every investor.  Speculate only with money that you can afford to lose.  You can lose more than the invested capital.  Therefore ensure that the you have fully understood the risks involved and obtain expert advice from an independent party if necessary.  Successes in the past do not guarantee investment success in the future.

Reading of the brochure "Basic Information on Futures Trading", which is obtainable from banks and savings banks and is intended for those wanting to develop the ability to trade in futures is -  insofar as it is not already required under §53 Section 2 of the Stock Exchange Act - in our opinion, highly advisable.    This website does not fulfil this educational role. It is assumed instead that the knowledge conveyed by the brochure "Basic Information on Futures Trading" has been acquired by the investor.  Whoever engages in derivatives transactions on the basis of the strategies, information and opinions presented here must have developed the ability to trade futures and is therefore fully aware of the risks associated with this activity.

The opinions, strategies and information presented here must in no case be understood as general or personal counselling since the contents only reflect  the subjective opinion of the editors.  The information on this website does not therefore replace consultation or the use of personal counselling services of the investor’s bank and/or the custodian bank, which is to be strongly recommended in all cases. 

Liability for links

Out website contains links to external websites of third parties on whose contents we do not have any influence.  We cannot therefore provide any guarantee for these external contents.  For the contents of the linked websites the provider or operator of the website is always responsible in each case.  The linked pages were checked for possible breaches of law at the time they were linked.  No illegal contents could be recognised at the time the linking occurred.   Permanent monitoring of the contents of the linked websites cannot, however, be reasonably expected without concrete evidence indicating a breach of law.   If knowledge of breaches of law is obtained, we shall remove links of this sort immediately.

It is also possible that, without our knowledge and consent, our website is linked via hyperlinks from other websites. For legal reasons QTrade does not, in principle, allow hyperlinks to any QTrade web pages but it cannot monitor or prevent this.  For this reason QTrade herewith disclaims any liability or responsibility for the presentation and content of web pages other than the QTrade web pages and with which QTrade web pages are or will be linked.
