    Your membership subscription plans offer automatic renewal at the current retail price rate for ease of convenience. Note: you can choose not to renew any of our service plans; the member is required to notify us by email or phone if they do not wish to renew; or if they wish to cancel. Refunds are available for any reason upon cancellation in the first 3 weeks of service (we consider 5:00 pm ET on the Monday after the 3rd emailed report is sent to you as the unconditional renewal period. In the case of a Monday national holiday, the deadline becomes the following Tuesday at 5:00 pm ET). After the 3-week unconditional trial period, you can still receive a pro-rated refund for unused weekly reports but we do subtract a $25.00 processing fee for such requests. 

    Discounted new member rates are open only to new subscribers; one new member discount offer per household in a 24 month period.

    By signing up for our Annual or Semi-annual plans, you agree to automatic renewal as described above. However, if you do not want the automatic renewal feature with your subscription, please send us an email at any time up until 3 business days before the end or your subscription period, ande we will remove the automatic renewal feature. Your email should be sent to invoice@AceStockTrader.com identifying yourself, and we will not automatically renew your account without your permission.

  • Privacy Policy
  • AceStockTrader.com use of personal information that you may submit to AceStockTrader.com through this Web site is governed by the AceStockTrader.com Privacy Policy. We do not share your personal information with third party vendors or providers without your express permission. AceStockTrader.com is a branded division of Chiron Information Services.

  • Consumer Agreement

    All trading and investment activity subjects you to the risk of loss, including losses greater than your original investment. This means that you should not trade with money that you cannot afford to lose.

    We are not registered as a securities broker-dealer or an investment adviser either with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) or with any state securities regulatory authority. We are neither licensed nor qualified to provide investment advice. We are not offering securities for sale or solicitation of any offer to buy or sell securities. An offer to buy or sell can be made only with accompanying disclosure documents and only in the states and provinces for which they are approved.

    Our e-mails, newsletters and website have been prepared for informational purposes only and are not intended to be used as a complete source of information on any particular company. An individual should never invest in the securities of any of the companies profiled by us based solely on information contained on our website or in any of our reports or emails. Individuals should assume that all information obtained from us about any profiled company is not trustworthy unless verified by their own independent research.

    Any individual who chooses to invest in any securities should do so with caution. Investing in stocks or derivative products such as options or futures are considered to be highly speculative and may be unsuitable for all but very aggressive investors. Small-cap companies, micro-cap companies, penny stocks and/or thinly traded securities are inherently risky and volatile investments and carry a high degree of risk; you may lose some or all of the money that is invested. Always research your own investments and consult with a registered investment advisor or licensed stock broker before investing.

    Unauthorized reproduction of any material on this website  in part or whole is strictly prohibited.

    Bond investing or trading involves some significant risks and is not suitable for all investors. Though certain government bonds can be less risky than other investments, they are subject to loss of principal should they be sold before maturity or should the sovereign issuer become insolvent. Corporate bonds carry their own risks which can be substantial. As always, consult a Registered Investment Advisor or licensed stock broker. We are neither, and our comments on bonds should be viewed only as our own opinions and are not to be viewed as advice for investors.

    Chiron Information Services,  AceStockTrader.com and its personnel, owners, officers and directors are not registered broker-dealers or investment advisors. You are encouraged to speak with licensed broker-dealers, investment advisors and other counselors of your choice regarding the appropriateness of trading stock options or making any other particular type of investment.

    Mr. Carleton and/or his designated stock analysts are not restricted from owning individual securities or options. In addition, certain of Chiron Information Services, affiliates and employees may, from time to time, have long and short positions in, or buy or sell the securities, or derivatives thereof, of companies mentioned in AceStockTrader.com and may take positions inconsistent with the views expressed.

    Chiron Infomation Services is an original content publisher. The Product contains Mr. Carleton's own opinions and is provided for informational purposes only. You should not rely solely upon the Product for purposes of transacting securities or other investments, and you are encouraged to conduct your own research and due diligence, and to seek the advice of a qualified securities professional, before you make any investment. None of the information contained in the Product constitutes, or is intended to constitute a recommendation by Mr. Carleton or Chiron Information Services / AceStockTrader.com of any particular security or trading strategy or a determination by Mr. Carleton or said Publisher that any security or trading strategy is suitable for any specific person. To the extent any of the information contained herein may be deemed to be investment advice, such information is impersonal and not tailored to the investment needs of any specific person.
