Phil's Stock World is an educational site where we discuss trade ideas and sometimes track the performance of those trade ideas in virtual portfolios. We do our best to track the performance of these trades and we encourage our Members to let us know if they ever catch a discrepancy but no system is perfect so please do not consider any calculation of an individual trade or portfolio to be indicative of actual performance. As with quantum mechanics, the act of participating in a trade may change the outcome for the observer. Our authors may discuss trade ideas in chat and many Members follow along with paper trading accounts and may discuss their own ideas but you should never, ever, ever risk trading without a qualified investment adviser who knows your financial situation and has expertise in the securities you are planning to invest in. Investments are very risky, we discuss risky strategies that are not right for the vast majority of investors and we also discuss conservative strategies that also may be totally wrong for you - again, we are only her to teach you and we use many examples to do so, including tracking virtual live trades but we would NEVER want you to execute any of those trades other than in a "paper trading" account with virtual money and then, once you learn the strategies - you can find a qualified investment adviser to work on similar strategies with.
