Each participants weighted average portfolio performance is calculated on an ongoing basis from the beginning to the end of each Zone. The leaderboard is the ranking of the weighted average performance out of all users participating in each Zone. A users performance within a Zone may differ from actual portfolio performance because of the start date of the Zones and some Zones will only include a portion of a participant’s entire brokerage account portfolio.
Users can trade their portfolio as they see fit. Participation in Zones does not affect your ability to access your brokerage account or engage in trading activity, and your Zone entries will be updated based on the trading.
All investments involve risk, including the loss of principal. The past performance of a security or financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. Keep in mind that while diversification may help spread risk it does not assure a profit, or protect against loss. Users should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing in securities, including while participating in a Zone. The price of a given security may increase or decrease based on market conditions and customers may lose money, including their original investment. Users are not required to participate in Zones. Each user participates in Zones at their own risk. Communications regarding Zones are provided for information purposes only. “Zones” as well as the “leaderboard” are simply social features of the Zingeroo App and do not constitute a recommendation to a user to buy, hold or sell any security or any other asset.
Options trading entails significant risk and is not appropriate for all investors. Certain complex options strategies carry additional risks. Please review the options disclosure document entitled ‘Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options’, available in the Disclosure Library.
