Futures trading is not suitable for all investors, and involves the risk of loss. Futures are a leveraged investment, and because only a
percentage of a contract’s value is required to trade, it is possible to lose more than the amount of money deposited for a futures
position. Therefore, traders should only use funds that they can afford to lose without affecting their lifestyles. And only a portion
of those funds should be devoted to any one trade because they cannot expect to profit on every trade.

All references to options refer to options on futures.
