Rational Speculator is published by Shoreside Advisors, LLC for educational purposes. Rational Speculator and Shoreside Advisors, LLC are not registered as securities broker-dealers or investment advisers in any jurisdiction. This blog follows my Trades and Speculations and does not provide recommendations of what I think you should do with your money. I do not provide investment advice as I do not know your personal circumstances and I am not an investment adviser. Trades and Speculations can be high risk and not suitable for all people. In particular, futures and options on futures carry a high degree of risk in that the initial margin is small relative to the notional value of the futures contract meaning that a small market move can have a large impact on your portfolio. A negative result could mean that you may be liquidated at a loss if you can not meet a broker request for additional funds and that you would be held responsible for any deficit. Please do your own due diligence including speaking with your investment adviser and consulting with technical experts including geologists to assist in the evaluation of junior resource companies. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
I may own, buy or sell any security or financial contract described on this blog at any time. I may make other trades in my portfolio that are not published on this blog. Commissions and exchange fees can add up for Trades and Speculations. Please select your broker to ensure that you receive not only a competitive fee schedule, but also access to the latest technology and superior customer service.
