General Disclaimer

The Stock Investor Support Wiki is an on-line open-content collaboration, that is, a voluntary association of individuals working to develop a common resource for the Stock Investor Pro user community. The structure of the project allows anyone with an Internet connection to alter its content. Please be advised that nothing found here has necessarily been reviewed by people with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate or reliable information.

That is not to say that you will not find valuable and accurate information in the Stock Investor Support Wiki; much of the time you will. However, AAII cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here. The content of any given article may recently have been changed, vandalized or altered by someone whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge in the relevant fields. Note that most other reference works also have similar disclaimers.

No formal peer review

We are working on ways to select and highlight reliable versions of articles. Our editors attempt to monitor new and changing content. However, the Stock Investor Support Wiki is not uniformly peer reviewed; while readers may correct errors or engage in casual peer review, they have no legal duty to do so and thus all information read here is without any implied warranty of fitness for any purpose or use whatsoever. Even articles that have been vetted by informal peer review may later have been edited inappropriately, just before you view them.

None of the contributors, administrators, or anyone else connected with the AAII or the Stock Investor Support Wiki in any way whatsoever can be responsible for the appearance of any inaccurate or libelous information or for your use of the information contained in or linked from these web pages.
