Calculating Future Returns

Please seek independent financial advice regarding your particular situation. Never invest more than you can afford to lose and keep in mind the ultimate risk is that you can lose in excess of whatever you’ve invested. The value of any investment and the income derived from it can go down as well as up. The past is not a guide to future performance even though it is useful for detecting patterns. Any figures relayed by The Trading Game Pty Ltd are forecasts and may not be a reliable indicator of future results. Any potential gains reported do not include taxes, brokerage commissions, or associated fees.
Investments in foreign companies involve risk and may not be suitable for all investors. Currency fluctuations represent a risk for anyone undertaking an investment that involves foreign investment vehicles. It’s important to realise that when one undertakes a foreign investment, you are not only forming a view on the investment vehicle, but also on the relative exchange rates related to that investment. It is possible that the variation in exchange rate may cause a loss that is related to fluctuations in the currency which outweigh the gains of the original investment.
