Liquidity Risk

Liquidity risk refers to the risk there will not be enough buyers and sellers available to execute your desired trade.

Counterparty Risk

Counterparty risk refers to the risk of not receiving funds from your trading counterparty. This strategy only trades exchange stocks and ETFs so the exchange guarantees the counterparty risk.

We are trading an instrument denominated in US Dollars. The value of this asset will change in Australian Dollar terms due to changes in the AUD.USD exchange rate. You can elect to hedge this currency risk if you desire. Please speak to your Capital 19 adviser about this.

Hypothetical Performance

Since the trades have not been actually executed the results might have under compensated for the effects of market spreads and possible lack of liquidity. We have assumed an execution cost of $15 but it is possible execution costs could be higher which would detract from performance. The results shown are before any effect of FX on the value of the portfolio and it also does not include the possible effect of dividends. Historical performance is only an indication and cannot be relied upon for future performance. Capital 19 makes no guarantee any account will experience similar results
