Keep in mind that while diversification may help spread risk, it does not assure a profit or protect against loss in a down market.

Past performance of a security or strategy does not guarantee the security or strategy will be successful in the future. Results could vary significantly and losses could result.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, charges, expenses and unique risk profile of an exchange-traded fund (ETF) or mutual fund carefully before investing. A prospectus contains this and other information and should be read carefully before investing. A mutual fund prospectus is available through or through a Scottrade branch office. An ETF prospectus must be obtained from the issuer.

Limitations of the X-ray tool include:

  • Does not reflect any short positions within the account
  • Does not reflect any positions in the account that are classified as “other”

Limitations of the Performance Review chart:

  • Uses set asset allocations without accounting for market events/corporate actions
  • Does not consider taxes, commissions or inflation
