By using CWN Products and service you agree that: Market quotes and other information are solely for your own personal use. You shall not re-transmit or otherwise furnish market data to any other person. You acknowledge that the data is and shall remain in the property of the respective information providers or of the market on which a reported transaction took place or a reported quotation was entered. You acknowledge that the information providers are third party beneficiaries under these provisions and may enforce these provisions against you.
You understand that the material provided in CWN Products is for informational purposes only, and that no mention of a particular security in any CWN Product constitutes a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold that or any other security, or that any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person. You further understand that none of the information providers or their affiliates will advise you personally concerning the nature, potential, value or suitability of any particular security, portfolio of securities, transaction, investment strategy or other matter. To the extent any of the information contained in any CWN Product may be deemed to be investment advice, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person.
You understand that performance data is supplied by sources believed to be reliable, that the calculations herein are made using such data, and that such calculations are not guaranteed by these sources, the information providers, or any other person or entity, and may not be complete.
From time to time, reference may be made in marketing materials to prior articles and opinions that have been published on our website. These references may be selective, may reference only a portion of an article or recommendation, and are likely not to be current. As markets change continuously, previously published information and data may not be current and should not be relied upon.
When U.S. exchanges are open, stock and fund quotes (other than those obtained through the real-time quote services available to users of certain CWN Products) are at least 15 minutes old. When U.S. exchanges are not open, quotes are only current as of the close of the last day of trading. Before selling or buying any stock or other investment you should consult with a qualified broker or other financial professional to verify pricing information.
