InvestSTARS is not registered as an investment advisor with the The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Instead, InvestSTARS relies on the "publisher's exclusion" from the definition of "investment advisor" under Section 202(a)(11)(D) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and corresponding state laws. We do not provide any investment advice or "a personal recommendation to a client, either to buy, sell, or hold a particular investment, or to exercise any right conferred by such an investment." and conduct our services within the legal obligations as outlined by the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA).

Therefore, InvestSTARS does not offer or provide personalized investment advice. Any content, material, information, or any other informational offering published, broadcast, or otherwise stated on this and/or associated websites that may be considered "investment advice" is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person. The information contained on this and/or associated websites is for entertainment purposes only. It should not be interpreted as investment or trading advice and is not meant to be a solicitation or recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any positions in any indices or financial markets mentioned. The content and information provided by InvestSTARS, the Site, and other InvestSTARS products and services are solely incidental to the business and activities of InvestSTARS in providing entertainment services.
You are solely responsible for all decisions regarding your purchase and sale of securities, the suitability, profitability, or appropriateness of any security, investment, financial product, investment strategy, or other matter, and all other matters related to your investments and investment strategies. InvestSTARS does not and will not provide you with any legal, tax, estate planning, or accounting advice, or any advice regarding the suitability, profitability, or appropriateness of any security, investment, financial product, investment strategy, or other matter. InvestSTARS employees are not authorized to give investment advice and you will not solicit or rely on any investment advice from any InvestSTARS employee. InvestSTARS recommends that persons wishing to trade or invest in securities do so cautiously and only in consultation with their professional, licensed, and qualified financial, legal, tax, estate planning, and accounting advisors.
No data, content, or information provided by InvestSTARS, the Site, or other InvestSTARS products and services is intended to be, or should be construed as, advice or a recommendation to buy or sell securities, nor any offer or solicitation of an offer to buy or sell securities, nor an attempt to influence the purchase or sale of any security. InvestSTARS is not registered as an investment advisor with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), any other regulatory authority in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, or any state securities governmental or regulatory authority, and InvestSTARS' business and activities do not require such registration. It is important for individuals in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and overseas to conduct their own research and seek advice from a licensed financial advisor.
B. Data, content and information
No information, content or data provided by InvestSTARS, the Site or any other products and services offered by InvestSTARS, should be interpreted as, or construed as, investment advice or any recommendations to buy, sell or hold a specific security or to pursue any investment strategy. InvestSTARS does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, currency or usefulness of information, commentary, recommendations, advice, investment ideas or any other materials that can be accessed through the Site or the other products and services offered by InvestSTARS.
InvestSTARS does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, currency or usefulness of information, commentary, recommendations, advice, investment ideas or any other materials that can be accessed through the Site or the other products and services offered by InvestSTARS. This includes, but is not limited to, any online forum, chatroom or other form of communication. If you choose to rely on this information, you acknowledge and agree to do so at your own risk. You understand, acknowledge and agree that the research, analysis, news or other information provided through the Site or the other products and services offered by InvestSTARS is not investment advice and is not tailored to fit any personal financial circumstances or investment objectives. The securities and investment strategies discussed may not be suitable for you, and any decision to purchase or sell securities or make any investment must be made by you after conducting your own independent investigation and evaluation, without relying on any information provided by InvestSTARS, the Site or any other products and services offered by InvestSTARS.
InvestSTARS cannot independently verify, assess or guarantee the validity, timeliness, adequacy, accuracy or completeness of any data, content or information, or the suitability or profitability of any security or investment, or the potential value of any security, investment or informational source. You bear sole responsibility for your investment research and decisions, and should seek the advice of a licensed and qualified securities professional before buying or selling any security or making any investment.
The forums, chat rooms and discord channels offered by the site are made up of customers and members, including moderators who are employed by InvestSTARS, who post information and content. All such information is intended for entertainment purposes only and does not constitute investment advice or a recommendation by InvestSTARS to engage in any securities transactions or pursue any financial strategies. Customers and members may write about securities in which they have a financial interest, and performance data reflecting other customers' or members' holdings may include information about securities not held by InvestSTARS or its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, agents or affiliates. As such, InvestSTARS is not responsible for the accuracy of information or performance data in any forum, chat room and discord channels, and the accuracy of such information is not guaranteed and may not be current. Nothing in any forum, chat room and discord channels should be relied upon as investment advice provided by InvestSTARS or its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, agents or affiliates.
InvestSTARS does not control and does not endorse any information or content posted on the forum, chat room and discord channels. By participating in these forums, chat rooms and discord channels, you acknowledge and agree that you do so at your own risk, and InvestSTARS expressly denies responsibility for any such information or content. InvestSTARS has the right, but not the obligation, to review and remove any information or content. You acknowledge and agree that accessing these forums, chat rooms and discord channels may expose you to material that you find offensive, indecent, obscene or otherwise objectionable. You agree that under no circumstances will you hold InvestSTARS or its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, agents or affiliates liable for any such content displayed or made available through the Site or for any loss or damage incurred as a result of your use of these forum, chat room and discord channels.
Without limiting the generality of the above, you acknowledge and agree that forums, chat rooms and discord channels moderators may call out or post real and hypothetical trades and real and simulated or hypothetical returns for entertainment purposes only. The opinions and ideas expressed by moderators do not constitute a recommendation and should not be relied upon as they may not be complete or accurate. All InvestSTARS' services, products, and websites are intended solely for entertainment purposes. The information provided on the site, including but not limited to the alerts service and forum, chat room and discord channels, does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement by InvestSTARS for any particular security or trading strategy, nor does it determine that any security or trading strategy is suitable for an individual. InvestSTARS operates solely as a publisher and an entertainer.
You acknowledge, understand, and agree that the results from InvestSTARS may be based on simulated or hypothetical performance, which has certain limitations. These results do not reflect actual trading and may not be accurate because they don't consider factors such as trading commissions, market conditions, lack of liquidity, and other factors. Your actual results may differ from the reported results for many reasons.
You acknowledge, understand, and agree that the trades shared on the site are for entertainment purposes only and may not be executed. The moderators may sometimes purchase or sell securities earlier or later than what is called out, posted, or alerted, and they may not disclose all trades. The moderators may not have the same positions as the trades they share and may not have actually executed the trades. The performance results of these trades may not be reliable because they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. The site contains simulated or hypothetical trading programs, and there is no guarantee that you will achieve similar results.
You acknowledge, understand, and agree that InvestSTARS and its affiliates have no obligation to verify the moderator trade records or to maintain records of moderator trades and results, and that the moderators have no obligation to provide InvestSTARS any data. By using the site, you agree to the operations of InvestSTARS and release InvestSTARS and its affiliates from any liability, claim, loss, cost, expense, or damage arising from or relating to moderator statements, actions, and omissions, including real, simulated, or hypothetical trades and results. You should only invest money that you can afford to lose, and not use funds meant for other purposes such as retirement, education, debt reduction, or mortgages.
(C) Activities of InvestSTARS Trading Personnel
InvestSTARS and its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, agents, and affiliates are active investors and traders of securities. These parties may choose to purchase or sell any security or engage in any investment strategy found in the site's data, content, or information, or in other InvestSTARS products or services. Such decisions and activities may be made at any time without notice and without disclosing or informing you or any other person. These parties are not required to follow InvestSTARS' strategies and are not required to disclose or notify you or any other person about their decisions or activities. The individual plans and experiences of InvestSTARS personnel are unique and may not be duplicated or considered typical.
InvestSTARS does not participate in creating a false or misleading appearance of active trading in a security or manipulating the market for that security. InvestSTARS also does not participate in any series of transactions aimed at raising or depressing the price of a security or stabilizing the price in contravention of any law, rule, or regulation.
By agreeing to these terms, you understand, acknowledge, and agree that InvestSTARS and its personnel engage in active trading of securities but do not participate in any illegal or unethical activities as described above. You also waive and release any claims, losses, damages, liabilities, and any other costs and expenses, including attorney's fees, arising from or related to your purchase or sale of a security that may have been affected by InvestSTARS' business or activities.
(D) Investments and Results
The buying and selling of securities, futures, or commodities involves a high level of risk and is speculative in nature. Only individuals who understand and accept the associated risks, have independently evaluated and determined their acceptance and suitability for these risks, and are able to bear the possibility of substantial or complete loss of funds should engage in such transactions.
InvestSTARS, and the content and information contained on the Site, and in other products and services of InvestSTARS, do not guarantee any specific or predictable results. Trading in securities and any other investment activities involve a significant level of risk and various factors can have a significant and negative impact on the results, potentially leading to complete loss of investment.
InvestSTARS and its directors, officers, shareholders, employees, agents, and affiliates make no representations, warranties, or guarantees regarding the validity, adequacy, timeliness, accuracy, reliability, or completeness of any data, content, or information. You should thoroughly analyze, review, and verify any such data, content, or information independently.
InvestSTARS may use testimonials or descriptions of past performance, but these do not indicate future results or performance or any representations, warranties, or guarantees that you will achieve similar results. Your results may differ materially from those expressed or used by InvestSTARS due to various factors.
Commodity Futures Trading Commission Rule 4.41: Hypothetical performance results have numerous limitations, some of which are outlined below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. There is often a significant difference between hypothetical performance results and actual results achieved by a specific trading program. The limitations of hypothetical performance results include that they are typically prepared with hindsight, and hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk. It is not possible to completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading through a hypothetical trading record. For instance, the ability to endure losses or adhere to a specific trading program despite trading losses are critical factors that can also have a negative impact on actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of a specific trading program that cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can have a negative impact on actual trading results.
(E) Testimonials Disclaimer
InvestSTARS, in compliance with the UK advertising regulations set by the Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) Code and the Broadcast Committee of Advertising Practice (BCAP) Code, and in accordance with 16 CFR Part 255 and Federal Trade Commission Guidelines on the use of endorsements and testimonials in marketing and advertising, we would like to make you aware of the following:
Our marketing and advertising campaigns may contain endorsements and testimonials from our customers and partners who have used our services. These testimonials are provided by real customers and partners and are not influenced by us in any way.
We make sure that all our endorsements and testimonials are accurate and truthful, and we do not make any claims that we cannot substantiate with evidence. We also make sure that any material connections between us and the endorsers or testimonials are clearly disclosed, such as compensation or free services.
Our commitment to transparency and honesty in our marketing and advertising is aligned with the regulations set by the CAP and BCAP Codes and the guidelines from the Federal Trade Commission. We take these regulations seriously and strive to meet the highest standards of ethics and integrity in all our business practices, please be aware of the following:
Endorsements, testimonials or descriptions of past performance:
Are based on individual experiences and results with the Site and the products and services of InvestSTARS
Are not typical and you should not expect to achieve the same or similar results or performance
Are likely to vary or differ materially
Are individual experiences and not representative of all customers and members.
Received via text, audio, or video submission from customers or members
Verbatim except for correction of grammatical or typing errors and editing for length
No payment or compensation was involved in the endorsement, testimonial or description appearing on the Site.
InvestSTARS or any of its employees, partners or affiliates’ experience with trading is not typical, nor is the experience of individuals featured in testimonials.
Becoming an experienced trader takes hard work, dedication and a significant amount of time
InvestSTARS does not track the typical results of current or past students and as a provider of entertainment or any educational courses, it does not have access to the personal trading accounts or brokerage statements of its customers.
Research data suggests that most day traders are not profitable:
In a research paper published in 2014, only 9.81% of day trading volume was generated by predictably profitable traders (See Citation 1)
In a 2005 article published in the Journal of Applied Finance, only 50% of 1,146 brokerage accounts were profitable (See Citation 2)
In a 2003 article published in the Financial Analysts Journal, only 35% of 334 brokerage accounts were profitable. (See Citation 3)
The range of results from these studies highlights the difficulty in determining a definitive success rate for day traders, and at a minimum, these studies suggest that at least 50% of aspiring day traders will not be profitable.
Day Trading is a high-risk activity and can result in the loss of your entire investment. Any trade or investment is at your own risk.

A group of professors from the University of California conducted research on day trading, analyzing 3.7 billion trades on the Taiwan Stock Exchange between 1992-2006. Their study, titled “Do Day Traders Rationally Learn About Their Ability?” and published in 2014, found that only 9.81% of day trading volume was generated by predictably profitable traders, and that these traders make up less than 3% of all day traders on an average day. (Barber et al., 2014)
A 2005 article in the Journal of Applied Finance, titled “The Profitability of Active Stock Traders,” researched by professors from the University of Oxford and the University College Dublin found that out of 1,146 brokerage accounts day trading in the US markets between March 8, 2000, and June 13, 2000, only 50% were profitable, with an average net profit of $16,619. (Garvey and Murphy, 2005)
In another study, conducted by professors at the University of Texas and published in the Financial Analysts Journal in 2003, 334 brokerage accounts day trading in the US markets between February 1998 and October 1999 were analyzed. The study, titled “The Profitability of Day Traders,” found that only 35% were profitable, and only 14% generated profits in excess of $10,000. (Jordan and Diltz, 2003)
The range of results in these three studies underscores the challenge of determining a definitive success rate for day traders. However, these studies suggest that at least 50% of aspiring day traders will not be profitable. This reinforces the notion that consistently making money trading stocks is not an easy task. It's worth noting that day trading is a high-risk activity that could lead to the loss of your entire investment, and any trade or investment is made at your own risk.
