There is a risk of loss in futures trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. Seasonal trades track historical price cycles and have the benefit of hindsight. There is no guarantee that any seasonal trade will follow the same cycle as in previous years and as such, there is no guarantee of profit. The use of a stop loss order may not necessarily limit your loss to the intended amount.
You should carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources.
