The Company only provides tools, data and infrastructure to enable the user to create, test and deploy his/her/its own strategies and systematic trading strategies. In this regard, the nature of services is hereby clarified:

Testing: The Company provides tools, data and infrastructure to the user to create a real-time simulation environment and allow the user to test the hypothetical behaviour of his/her/its strategy. The Company provides data feed with a delay of one minute with randomized slippages in order to provide as accurate results as possible. The Platform provides tools, data and infrastructure to the users to test his/her/its strategies using historical market data to obtain hypothetical results in a simulated environment, which may differ from the result if tested on a real-time basis. However, due to the dynamic nature of the securities market, the Company cannot guarantee the accuracy of the output of the tests undertaken in simulated environment all the time.

Live Trading: The user deploys his/her/its trading strategies using the Platform through his/her/its brokerage account held with his/her/its stockbroker in an automated manner based on the terms and conditions determined by the user themselves. It is clarified that the Company does not provide any trading strategy or investment advice or research report and only offers tools, data and infrastructure to the user to create, customize and deploy his/her/its strategies based on his/her/its requirement. In order to deploy trading strategies for live trading, the user must have a trading and demat account with one of the stockbrokers supported on the Platform and must access the Platform and the demat account by himself/herself/itself. Further, the user must activate the strategy it wants to deploy by clicking on “Activate”. The user by clicking on “Activate” provides its explicit consent to the Platform to place orders and take trades on behalf of the user for the day. The Platform only places the order and takes trades based on the strategy deployed by the user and does not check the suitability of the strategy for a particular user which may vary. Further, the Platform neither manually interferes with the strategy deployed nor accesses or obtains data of the user other than those necessary for deploying the strategy.

The services offered on the Platform are intended for the personal use of the user only, subject to his/her/its compliance with the provisions of this Terms of Use.

The Company may provide sample strategies for illustrative purposes. Such sample strategies shall be extremely basic (e.g. short at-the-money straddle with stop-losses) and shall be readily available in any basic trading book, tutorials or any material of similar nature available in the public domain and shall be made available to the user for the sole purpose of explaining the functionality of the Platform and how to use them. The user shall be solely responsible for any profits or losses resulting from deploying such sample strategies for live trading and the Platform neither promotes nor recommends any such sample strategy.

Accounts, Passwords, and Security

The user can sign up to the Platform using his/her/its name, phone number and password. Additional information may be sought for ease and efficiency of usage of the Platform. Further, the user can log in to the Platform using the phone number and password. The user is required to provide accurate and up-to-date personal information as prompted by the registration form and any failure of the user to provide the same accurately would make the user solely responsible for such incorrect information.

The user can use the Platform to directly deploy his/her/its trading strategies in his/her/its demat account upon such integration through logging into the demat account with the stockbroker. In this regard, it is clarified that the Company or the Platform does not store login details of the user with such stockbrokers in any form or manner. Further, the Company does not have access to any of the passwords and/or One Time Passwords that the user may be required to provide while using the platform of the stockbroker or any password that the user may be required to provide while using the Platform. This shall include the password of the user to access his/her/its account on the Platform and the demat account. The Platform only receives the information with respect to the orders and trades undertaken by the user deploying his/her/its strategy, only after the user has linked their demat account with the Platform. These orders and trade details are provided by the stockbroker when the session is active and the Platform does not have access to the login details of the user.

The user is solely responsible for all the activities in his/her/its account, whether by them individually or by anyone else. The user shall be liable for any loss incurred by the Company or any other person due to unauthorized or reckless use of his/her/its account. Further, the Company shall not be liable for any losses incurred by the user from the use of his/her/its account by another person, whether with or without their knowledge.

RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT

Risks

The risks of using the Platform can be in the form of:

Technological Risks :

Related to the Platform’s software, including programming errors and updates that may impact functionality. Related to the computing and communications infrastructure, including system failures, maintenance interruptions, and software upgrades. Related to the user’s computer system and Internet connectivity, which may fail or perform erratically. Related to errors that may exist in the data used for testing the user’s strategy or the market model applied. Related to services provided by third-party service providers including data providers, computational services providers and network connectivity providers. Related to cyber-attacks and other criminal activities including malfunction or compromise of systems, misappropriation of intellectual property, theft of funds, and erratic behavior in the trading strategies. Related to failure in the deployment of the trading strategies due to failure of the infrastructure of the cloud-based service provided. The Company upon deployment of a strategy by a user books a computation slot for the user in the infrastructure of a third-party cloud service provider. However, the cloud-based computation slot of the user may fail due to numerous reasons including failure of the network or the infrastructure of the said third-party cloud service provider. Related to operational and information security and related cybersecurity incidents. In general, cyber incidents can result from deliberate attacks or unintentional events. Cybersecurity attacks include but are not limited to, gaining unauthorized access to the Platform (e.g., through “hacking” or malicious software coding) for purposes of misappropriating assets or sensitive information, corrupting data, or causing operational disruption. Related to cyber-attacks which may be carried out in a manner that does not require gaining unauthorized access, such as causing denial-of-service attacks on websites (i.e., efforts to make services unavailable to intended users). Cybersecurity incidents affecting the Platform and/or stockbrokers have the ability to cause disruptions and impact business operations, potentially resulting in financial losses, including by interference with impediments to undertake transactions; violations of applicable privacy, data security, or other laws; regulatory fines and penalties; reputational damage; reimbursement or other compensation or remediation costs; legal fees; or additional compliance costs.

Strategy-related Risks :

Related to the failure of the strategies to function correctly and comply with applicable rules. Related to trading strategies implemented in software programming code which can contain logical errors and bugs that may lead to strategy malfunctions or erroneous trade suggestions. Related to the user’s failure to comprehensively test any trading strategy before deployment and inability to continually monitor its performance, ensuring it complies with relevant rules. Related to the user’s incorrect understanding of technical indicators that may not work as expected or may contain logical errors in the interpretation of indicators and comparators.

Deployment-related Risks :

Related to differential return due to which the user may incur losses or fail to gain profit, on the strategy as compared to how it performed in various testing undertaken in a simulated environment. Related to differential returns with different data sources. Related to the use of the Platform along with third-party services or software causing malfunctions and unexpected outcomes. Related to variation in factors such as the impact of the strategy’s implementation on the market, real-life variables, execution costs, broker commissions, fees, trading slippage, flash crashes and exchange outages. Related to challenges that were not present during testing undertaken in a simulated environment, including disallowed or rejected orders due to margin requirements, illiquid stocks, and other issues or adverse market conditions like lack of liquidity, abrupt price swings, late market openings, early closings, market chaos, and mid-day trading pauses. Related to failure of infrastructure, connectivity and other factors including failure or rejection or incorrect execution of the orders which may or may not be caused due to the information provided by the user. Related to latency within the users’ systems, stockbroker’s system, cloud-provider’s systems and the market resulting in undesirable order placements, cancellations, failures to place orders, or any other unexpected outcome. The occurrence of any of these risks, alone or in combination with others, could result in the loss of all funds deposited in the brokerage account used for live trading based on the strategies created, tested and run by the user on the Platform. Losses can occur more rapidly in live trading while deploying strategies compared to other trading forms. It is essential to discuss the risks of trading, especially strategic/systematic trading with an investment professional. The user deploys any strategy in live trading at his / her / its own risk, and it is the user’s responsibility to thoroughly test and monitor the deployed strategy to ensure it complies with relevant rules. These risks highlight the complexities and uncertainties associated with live strategic/systematic trading and the importance of safeguarding trading strategies and brokerage accounts by the users from potential threats and disruptions.
