Actionable prices can be obtained only on a real-time, expressly agreed upon basis. Any indicative valuations in materials at this site are provided for information only. They are not an offer to enter into, transfer and assign or terminate any transaction, or a commitment by AKC to make such an offer. An indicative valuation may differ substantially from an actionable value. Such estimates do not necessarily reflect AKC's internal bookkeeping or theoretical model-based valuations. Certain factors which may not have been assessed for purposes of these valuations, including, for example, notional amounts, credit spreads, underlying volatility, costs of carry or use of capital and profit, may substantially affect a stated valuation. Indicative valuations in materials at this site may vary significantly from indicative valuations available from other sources. While AKC has obtained the information on which these evaluations are based from sources it believes reliable, AKC makes no representations or warranties with respect to any indicative valuations.
Hypothetical or simulated performance results have inherent limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are designed with the benefit of hindsight. Past performance is not indicative of future results; no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown.
