Investing in securities also involves risks. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. There is a possibility that you may sustain a loss equal to or greater than your entire investment regardless of which asset class you trade (equities, options, futures, or digital assets); therefore, you should not invest or risk money that you cannot afford to lose.

Diversification and asset allocation do not ensure future performance, success or guarantee against loss.
