About Striker
Coherent Policies
The founding principle of Striker Securities is to focus on customer service and avoid the conflicts of interest that plague many other brokerage firms. By removing these conflicts, our entire organization is dedicated to providing customers with the very best un-biased service. We believe that by putting our customer's interest first, we are also acting in the best long-term interest of the company. We are Confident you will enjoy our Unique innovative management practices!

BROKERS' TEAM APPROACH: Good teamwork creates synergy - where the combined effect of the team provides faster service to the client. Typically when you e-mail or phone Striker your service needs are put immediately into focus.

NO HOUSE or FIRM TRADING: Neither Striker nor any of its officers, principals, or owners have commodity or trading futures accounts. As a result, our service is focused on the customer's interest and not influenced by any "in house" trading.

NO OWNERSHIP TIES TO SYSTEM VENDORS: At Striker we operate numerous trading systems that are professionally developed by third-parties unrelated to Striker. We operate these systems for the benefit of our clients only, and maintain no ownership relationship with these system developers. Thus we have no preference for one system or the other that might conflict with your interests as our trading client. We suggest you study our monthly newsletter, "The Striker Report" to view life performance of various 3rd party trading systems before you purchase a trading system offered to you directly by a system developer. We have been auto-trading since 1998 because we are a credible internet source for investors that want to do their homework on actual performance for a trading system. Brokerage firms like Striker are compensated on a per trade basis and may have incentive to promote more actively traded systems over those that are less active. In the interest of transparency, we layout and display entire trade history of many 3rd party trading systems in our client section which empowers our clients to make a more informed decision about purchasing or leasing a system.

NO "IN-HOUSE" SYSTEMS: At Striker we trade only systems developed by professional third-party vendors OR the personal systems of our clients. We avoid "in-house" systems in order to remain un-biased when evaluating the many systems available on the market.

NO SYSTEMS TAMPERING: At Striker, clients rest in confidence that Striker never tries to "beat system results" by tampering with systems. We concentrate on execution, but we do not tamper with systems, and publish real-time results accordingly. We operate systems on a "best-efforts" basis exactly how the System Developers recommend and require, including the proper data feed, and software.

FULL ACCOUNTABILITY: Striker's reporting is specifically intended to serve as a compliance tool - it is not intended to be a marketing/ promotional tool since our model of reporting "worst fills" provides customers with the lowest possible expectations (which serves the opposite of marketing purposes).

These company policies not only allow us to provide the highest possible level of service, but also promote a business relationship based on trust, respect, and a clear understanding of your trading requirements.

Disclaimer The risk of trading can be substantial and each investor and/or trader must consider whether this is a suitable investment. Past performance, whether actual or indicated by simulated historical tests of strategies, is not necessarily indicative of future results. Striker is a member of the National Futures Association ("NFA"), the Managed Funds Association ("MFA"), and the National Introducing Broker Association ("NIBA"). Striker is registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC"), and was formerly registered with the Securities Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Additionally, Striker is a former member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA"), and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation ("SIPC"). FINRA is the largest non-governmental regulator for all securities business in the United States. Please read Striker Disclosure Statement for the additional disclosure.

Futures Trading Disclaimer:
Transactions in securities futures, commodity and index futures and options on futures carry a high degree of risk. The amount of initial margin is small relative to the value of the futures contract, meaning that transactions are heavily "leveraged". A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit: this may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and any additional funds deposited with the clearing firm to maintain your position. If the market moves against your position or margin levels are increased, you may be called upon to pay substantial additional funds on short notice to maintain your position. If you fail to comply with a request for additional funds within the time prescribed, your position may be liquidated at a loss and you will be liable for any resulting deficit. For accounts that are deemed abandoned or inactive, Striker may charge up to a $35.00 monthly inactivity fee, depending on the clearing firm where the account is held. If the Net Liquidity of an account reaches a Daily Loss Limit of 80%, open positions will attempt to be liquidated. Clients are responsible for monitoring their positions and are financially responsible for any losses generated by open positions in the account. Striker retains its right to liquidate positions in any account, at its sole discretion, with no forewarning.

Forex Trading Disclosure:
Trading cash Foreign Exchange ("FX") contracts carries the same high level of risk as futures trading (Futures Trading Disclaimer). However cash FX, unlike futures FX contracts that are regulated by the Commodity Trading Futures Commission, are not regulated by any governmental agency. In addition, because there is not a central clearing house for cash FX transactions, there is also a counterparty risk for each contact. For additional information please read the National Futures Association ("NFA") August 2003 "Investor Alert" found on the Striker Disclaimer Page.
